Taming Her Tycoon by Yahrah St. John

She's the ultimate temptation 

In high school, Naomi Brooks had a major crush on Lucius Knight—much like every other girl. So it's oh-so-satisfying to have the sexy corporate raider eager to buy her organic-products company years later. This man doesn't know how to lose. And he's making it clear that he wants Naomi's business as well as her body… 

Even when Naomi was a rough-and-tumble tomboy, Lucius was drawn to her. Now that she's bold, sexy and confident, she's even more alluring. He's willing to play dirty to convince her that a liaison can be mutually beneficial in and out of the bedroom. But that gamble, and an explosive family secret, might cost him the only conquest that truly matters: her heart.


I picked up a copy of this book in the self-help section of my bookstore, so I thought that it was going to be a how-to manual for the taming of actual tycoons. Ever since reading 50 Shades of Grey, I've been trying to snag my own troubled millionaire, and thought this book would help me out. Sadly, it didn't. 

Because this book is not a freakin' self-help book. Whoever put it in that section at the store is a jerk. They got my hopes for nothing. I mean, sure, the blurb probably shouldn't have given away that this is just a normal romance novel, but reading blurbs is for squares and I ain't no square man. And once I got started reading the book, I thought maybe in spite of the fact that it was a romance novel, it might still have some good tips for me, but the best tip was to have gone to school with a guy who runs his own profitable business and who also has the hots for you, which rules out EVERY. SINGLE. GUY. I went to school with. I mean sure, they all have the hots for me, but they're pretty much losers. 

So now I've wasted 5.43 hours reading this book, and I'm no closer to bagging my billionaire. But I guess on the bright side, I don't have to worry about getting a divorce from my current husband just yet (#SilverLining). 

So for what it was, this book gets 4 stars, I guess, but my real rating is -3 stars because it wasn't what I was expecting it to be, and that pisses me off, so it doesn't deserve any stars, and I actually want to take some extra stars from it to give to other books in the future that might help me in my quest.
