Shannon Myers had it with men. Finding her fiancé, Randolph, in bed with a naughty blond vixen half her age did little for her self-esteem and despair settled in. Incensed, her best friend, Amy, whisked her way to a Caribbean island and a well known Hedonistic spot so that she could recover while convincing her to have a wicked fling of her own.

Developing a naughty game titled Taming Paradise, the first one that bedded not one but two stunning hunks would win. Her spirit crushed, Shannon refused until she took one look at New Zealanders, Brandon and his rough-hewn friend Kyle and knew that two young studs just might be her ticket to a slice of happiness.

Instantly the nights turned saucy as Brandon introduced her to a very kinky society, where all things scandalous were on the menu.

Shannon found herself falling hard, until she realized that he was none other than Randolph's son and she was embroiled in a ruse that included releasing her inner most secret and very erotic cravings they had shared together years before. Racing back to the states, she was determined to put the experience behind her.

However Brandon wasn't playing a game. He had been in love with her for years and the moment he found out about his father's behavior, he was determined to win her heart. But would she ever forgive him?

TAMING PARADISE was a lot more tame than I expected based on the brief description of the book.

Amy coerces her friend, Shannon, into escaping to a hedonistic paradise to wash away the heartache she has suffered at the hands of her cheating fiance, Randolph. The pair throws caution to the wind and embarks on a journey of sexual discovery. Shannon is enticed into participating in the most outrageous sexual experience of her life and is sucked into a world of pleasure she hardly knew existed.

I am certainly willing to overlook some elements that lack believability if the rest of the story rocks my socks. However, while reading TAMING PARADISE, I just couldn't get past the fact that Shannon didn't recognize the son of her fiancé of more than 6 years. I mean really? Even if she had never met him, she HAD to have seen photos, right? It is obvious that this thought has crossed Ms. Dayne's mind as well, based on the number of times the characters mention their surprise at Shannon's lack of recognition of Brandon.

Then, my excitement level soared as Brandon introduced her to the "kinky" world of BDSM. I thought this would surely kick up the heat, but honestly, Cassandre Dayne really missed the opportunity to add some spice to this mediocre dish by glazing over this seductive and sensual lifestyle.
