Newell, I cannot tell you enough how big of a fan I am of your work. This story and the others before was simply perfect. You created characters that I was unable to do anything else but love them…even when one is a complete asshole sometimes and I wanted to reach between the words and strangle them until their head was on straight. Thank you so much for the honor and privilege to have read this.
Johnny hurt beyond belief and Emma who liked Johnny right away embark on a journey of not only self-discovery, but life altering. Things heat up and they shoot right into scorching and then cool off like ice. She drove him crazy. Pick this book up and follow Johnny and Emma on their journey.

Thank goodness this was short because I needed to get to sleep and there was no way I was putting it down until I finished reading. Taming Johnny was a well-written story about stifled attraction, emotional distance, and chemistry that wouldn't be denied. I loved that the supposedly meek and mild records clerk, Emma was the strong and tenacious risk taker, at least where Johnny was concerned.

She was perceptive, in some respects anyway, and not easily warned off by this tortured hero's aggressive bark.
For all his strength, experience, and competence on the job, this cop was wounded and afraid to connect emotionally again. He'd built walls around himself. Still, it wasn't enough to keep Emma out. Not only did she tear down his protective barricades, she somehow managed to penetrate his heart as well. She boldly went where no one else dared. I found her the stronger character because she was willing to risk her heart and maybe even be wounded. Johnny was already numb, a walking shell of a man who kept people and emotion at a distance.
It was easier for him to walk into danger because he'd buffered himself. Until Emma. I enjoyed Johnny's slow thaw, watching his vitality return with ever chink she took out of his armor.

Full Review to come on www. Nov 27, eRomantix rated it really liked it Shelves: cop-alert.
Gruff, and rude to keep people at a distance. I do tend to gravitate to these sort of hero's. It is just so satisfying to see them morph into a better, happier person. That is exactly what I was expecting when I started to read 'Taming Johnny'. So I wasn't surprised Johnny was a jerk towards Emma. That was par for the course. After a while, I did start to wonder how far an author can take this.
When do you expect the hero to start showing his softer side and give back to heroine? Because there has to some 'give' to make it a relationship and not just sex. As the book went on I was more and more anxious for Johnny to do this, and believe me he held out. As you see things from his point of view you can see he is aware of the cues from Emma she needs more. But he decides to ignore them. She gives and gives and he takes. At times he seemed straight out mean towards Emma. That's when I realised the difference for me. A hero can be cold and distant but mean just makes you think they are undeserving of the heroine.
Of course it made you wonder if Johnny could ever give Emma what she needs. I am not saying Johnny doesn't improve as the book goes along. I have to say he does come though and in is own gruff way. Kaylie Newell is good at showing the little things that build the attraction between these two. Physically coming together is the easy bit. But the emotional fall out of that is the hard bit to watch.
You want to look away because you can see heartbreak on the horizon but you just can't help yourself. Johnny is an enigma and the prologue make you curious as to whats going on with Johnny. By half way through the book I had a few different scenarios for Johnny's personality running though my head. His emotional distance is explained, you just have to be patient to find out!
Ok, it might seem like I am gripping about Johnny's character a lot here and while a few times I wanted to strangle Johnny. I liked this book. Emma was a great character strong, but realistic with her own issues. The writing was well thought through and the story complete. I would defiantly read more from Kaylie Newell. Jul 18, Pam rated it it was amazing Shelves: 5-stars , ebooks-read-in , read-in Johnny is the police departments jerk. He doesn't allow anyone to get close to him.
He is excellent at his job but his job is a little harder because he knows Emma likes him. He wants nothing to do with her.
Emma is shy, has self doubts about her body and really likes Johnny even if she doesn't know why. She finally has enough of his attitude and begins to dish it back to him. She thinks she will finally get over her crush. However the more she banters with Johnny the more she gets to see a diffe Johnny is the police departments jerk. However the more she banters with Johnny the more she gets to see a different side of him. One that even he may not know exist. Now she has to see if her growing love will be enough to get him to open or if she should give up and leave.
I adore Emma!! She is the girl you think is all sweet and shy and has real curves. She shows a different side when she gets around Johnny. She opens up more and begins to comeback at everything he throws at her. She doesn't like to give up till she knows it is over. Johnny is the sexy broken man you want to take into your arms and console among other things.
He can be a real jerk but you can tell he is hiding behind a wall. He may piss Emma off but anyone else better treat her good. This is a quick wonderful book. I loved it and wish it was longer. I wasn't ready to see the last of these characters. This is really a book about a woman opening up and letting the real her shine through and about a man learning he needs to let the past go if he is ever going to heal and have a chance at love.
Even when said man doesn't think he wants it. There is also the love scenes and in them you get to see that they may just be perfect for each other. You get both Emma and Johnny's POV and it is a great touch as you can see what they both are going through and feeling. You have the element of danger as everything from a tornado to everyday life of a cop.
Taming Johnny Manziel’s off-field antics on Cleveland’s to-do list - The Globe and Mail
I would recommend this to anyone who loves a great love story about great characters. Jul 08, Reading is my Time Out rated it liked it. Taming Johnny is a mix of angst, heartbreak, healing, and love. I felt all of these emotions while reading this novella which makes it great summer poolside read! He is a police Lieutenant and rubs everyone the wrong way. He is hated by all, feared by everyone, and no one really knows him as a person.

You need to eat, sleep and breathe football. I think we made strides in that department. I don't want to say we're there all the way. With Manziel unable to play, Austin Davis will start against the Steelers. The team also signed Pat Devlin to serve as Davis' backup. Devlin was with Cleveland at the end of training camp.

Vanessa Paradis on Johnny Depp: “The mutual taming of two kindred rebel spirits”
My teenage into adult crush on Mr. Depp used to make me loathe whoever he was with a little, even Wino who was my girlcrush in Heathers. I guess he needs a French woman to tame what other nationalities could not, and so he can speak French and be officially the hottest man ever to grace the earth. She is fairly well known in Britain from being a pop star in her teens, not unheard of at all with that and her fashion connections for her to get a magazine cover. I think she looks lovely in the pics, agree she is a super waif though. Anyway, love them.
One of my favorite couples. God…He is so sexy! A lot of them have bad teeth from nicotine and just not caring. I think — like Eva Green — she is one of the sexiest Frenchwomen around. I have to add: Lilias: You sound like a really fun person…. As people age, their gums shrink and any dental issues, like gaps, become more prominent.

For crissakes, she looks like a scarecrow. She is extremely popular and well-known in France as a singer, model, actress, and was, way before she met Johnny Depp. She looks really good in the cover magazines but not to good with Johnny. You can tell she adores him. I love both of them. She has always had something about her — she was so gorgeous when she was younger and still is. I hope they are really happy! Otherwise she is very beautiful and sylph-like.
People care about it more or less, in my experience, but Americans have a whole massive jones about it okay, some, err many, err okay this is a stereotype BUT a valid one! Pretty funny though. She reminds me of a snaggletoothed skeleton. Anyone of these ladies who sang with Gainsbourg became an instant sex icon in France.
