Sometimes you just can't resist playing with fire…
By day, Aaron Clarkson suits up, shakes hands, and acts the perfect gentleman. But at night, behind bedroom doors, the tie comes off and the real Aaron comes out to play. Mixing business with pleasure got him fired, so Aaron knows that if he wants to work for the country's most powerful senator, he'll have to keep his eye on the prize. That's easier said than done when he meets the senator's daughter, who's wild, gorgeous, and 100 percent trouble.
Grace Pendleton is the black sheep of her conservative family. Yet while Aaron's presence reminds her of a past she'd rather forget, something in his eyes keeps drawing her in. Maybe it's the way his voice turns her molten. Or maybe it's because deep down inside, the ultra-smooth, polished Aaron Clarkson might be more than even Grace can handle…

Too Wild to Tame is the second book in the Romancing the Clarksons series by Tessa Bailey. I really loved book, Too Hot to Handle. This series is an adult contemporary romance series. Book one is still my favorite, but this second installment was good as well. I just love all of Tessa Bailey’s works.
What I liked the most about this book and this series is the concept. I love a series of interconnected standalone novels, each focusing on a different character. There are tons of books which follow this pattern and it is a big winner for me. Even better if they are books that center around a family or group of siblings. I think that is very interesting and adds another layer of complexity and familiarity between the novels. This series centers around the four Clarkson siblings, but the interesting thing (in my opinion) is the set up. The four Clarkson siblings have not always gotten along, but when they find the journal from their mother, who was the glue of the family, they all head out on a cross-country road trip to fulfill some of her wishes. I love a road trip book, and I love a good, or dysfunctional, family dynamic. So when I found out where this book was headed I was super pumped.
Too Wild to Tame is Aaron Clarkson’s story. Aaron has a political career that took a bit of a nosedive after some mixing of pleasure and business. So it was interesting see the same kind of issue crop up again in this story. It was a bit of a plot miss for me. I would have preferred to see this go in a different direction, but overall I still enjoyed his story. I really, really enjoyed Grace. I thought she was awesome, and the romance certainly was hot. What I liked most about Grace was how different she was. YOu will see exactly what I mean when you read the book. I don’t really know how to define her or describe her and do her personality justice. She fits the wild word in the title very well. So does Aaron. That is Tessa Bailey’s specialty and she certainly delivers with this book and with this series. One of my favorite things in the first book was seeing all the different sibling dynamics, so I was happy to see more of them in this novel as well, though there was not as much as in the first book. Aaron’s story was an interesting read overall, and I certainly can’t wait for the rest of the Clarksons’ stories.
