Taming the Bander

I like shapeshifter books. Neither male character has to be alpha or beta, they can both be strong. Taming the Bander has a lot of humorous parts as well as sad parts. Because of Jake being who he is and Vaughn being who he is. LOL, I know that’s not really clear. But when you read the book you'll know what I mean. The interaction between Jake and Vaughn was a lot funny. The attraction fought on Jake's side made for an intense read. I recommend Taming the Bander.


When Vaughn is notified that his financial manager (Arun), who is also his cousin’s husband, has taken off with his wealth he goes to his cousins house to see if she is alright. He finds out her money has disappeared as well.

To let of some stress out, Vaughn goes for Arun and gets lost in a wildlife refuge that Jake Bander runs. Vaughn knows that Jake is hot and attractive, but his attitude leaves a lot to be desired. When Jake gives Vaughn a job at the refuge things start to look up for Vaughn.

Jake doesn't know what to make of Vauhgn at first. But he knows that Vaughn is trouble. But he can't help himself from helping Vaughn out. He knows that he can't act on the attraction between the two men, but it’s tempting.

Can Vaughn upset Jakes world enough for Jake to let him in or will they both loose on love?

Book Blurb for Taming the Bander

He thought he had nothing left to lose…until he lost his heart.

Jake will be forever grateful to the man who rescued him and brought him to an animal preserve to live. It’s the perfect home for a bander, a type of shifter known to be notoriously taciturn. Now Jake runs the place, and he’s content with the hard truth that he’ll always be alone.

Summer visitors are a necessary evil. And Vaughn Prentiss is exactly the sort of tourist that gets on Jake’s last nerve. A happy-go-lucky, carefree, trust-fund baby.

Vaughn can’t fathom why Jake seems to enjoy insulting him for no reason. Yet he’s attracted to the man’s gruff kindness with the preserve’s youthful workers. And it hasn’t escaped his notice that Jake is something special. Something not quite human.

When Vaughn discovers his financial manager has absconded with the family fortune, Jake acts on impulse to offer him a job, and wonders if he’ll live to regret it. It’s hard enough to keep his shifter nature private, much less keep his paws off his newest employee…a man Jake is coming to admire. If only he could be sure, when danger reveals the truth of what he is, if Vaughn will stay by his side—or run.

Warning: Contains a sexy “pretty boy” who’s smarter than he looks and a grouchy shapeshifter who can’t resist strong hands and a wicked tongue. Prepare yourself. This book is anything but tame.
