    • Here are a few facts about myself:1. I have read thousands of books in my lifetime.2. I sometimes find it difficult to form an emotional attachment to characters in a book.3. I can count on ONE HAND the amount of times that a book has brought me to tears.4. MJ Carnal has delivered an emotion packed, sobbing, can't catch my breath through my tears, emotional roller coaster of a book.I seriously don't know what to write in this review that would adequately express exactly how I felt as I read this [...]



    • Okay, this story was executed a bit better than the first. The characters and dialogue are entertaining and not quite as corny. There were still massive amounts of editing errors in this book, but was entertained enough to try not to let them bother me too much.Some of the biggest issues I have with this series is that situations are so overly dramatic, people fall in love so quickly that it seems contrived rather than organic, and some characters use terms of endearment that are way too intimat [...]


    • For me Ryan and Layla’s story way surpassed the first book, I fell for Ryan big time! (and not just because he was a tattooed hottie)Ryan’s back story was so sad and so well written that I was totally living in the book, I laughed with them , shouted at them and even cried with them and I cried a lot which I don’t do often over books! Loved how Ryan and Layla tried so hard to just keep it a casual thing yet they were both desperate for each other and falling quickly into love. I really war [...]


    • 3 starsIt took me awhile to finish this novel, it started quite well but then I got bored with it. I think book 1 is better than this. I do like the story butI don't know, for some reason, it kind of just made me lose interest. I finished it just for the sake of finishing it, and I kinda did a fast-read. I'm gonna read the 3rd book and hopefully it's much better than this one.


    • This has to be over 4 stars for me. I spent the last 25% with tears rolling down my cheeks and it actually started in a light and breezy way. I have not read the other books in the series, (they are standalones, although interconnected characters)but they seem to be about a sexy band of friends all finding their special girls. I have read these types of stories before and often the brothers are bikers or Marines etc. In this case Ryan ia a fitness instructor. Queue hot body descriptions, yummy. [...]


    • Contemporary romance set in crazy Los Angeles with a personal trainer and gym owner sexy playboy, Ryan West who finds love for the first time with his best friend's fiance's sister, Layla Barringer. Usually I get mad and stop reading a book when there is this much miscommunication between the H/h, but I was more forgiving because Layla and Ryan are in love for the first time and are just learning about being in a relationship which means talking to each other before jumping to conclusions. It do [...]


    • An amazingly well written and emotionally gripping story. I honestly could not put this book down. I read it in one sitting and was crying through the whole last half of the book (and you can ask any of my friends, I am not a crier). I loved, loved, loved Ryan and Layla. He was definitely the playboy in the first book "Taming the Bachelor", however, when he fell for Layla, he fell hard. The two of them together was hot! He became just the perfect guy until tragedy struck for the group, as well a [...]


    • OMG I loved this book!!!! I fell in love with Mark in the first book and I love Ryan even more. I love how Ryan and Layla just felt right. I know that there is always a monkey wrench that has to be thrown into a relationship, but I was heartbroken when Ari answered the phone. Caleb, Caleb, Caleb not again dude!!!! Why is it you seem to be at the center of all the trouble??? I cried (yes, buckets of tears), I laughed, I was so frustrated I wanted to slap someone, I prayed, and I was amazed at how [...]


    • OMG this one, omg is all I can really say. It had me in tears. I haven't cried over a book in forever. Oh my word Ryan, one word, YUMMY. I think I would be a skinny b*&$% if he was my trainer. I would make it to the gym every damn day to see him and have him position me lol. This was a sweet story and I saw it coming from the first book. I'm glad he got his happy ending, as much of a playboy as he is he just needed the right woman to come along. I wanted to kill Arie, really, she had some ba [...]


    • Taming the Playboy had a little bit of everything - lots of steam, interesting characters, and loads of twists and turns. It was the first book I read by MJ Carnal and it can be read as a standalone, although I would recommend reading the first book in the Dickerman/Moretti Novels first just so you have the background of the different characters. There was so much action packed into the book and I found it difficult to put it down as I was reading because I always wanted to know what would happe [...]


    • I honestly loved this book. I did feel it felt a bit rushed with each scene, but still a good story. These books are hard for me to read this month because I lost my grandmother to cancer in August last year. It's been hard feeling like I am reliving the pain. I guess that's why I am attached to these books. It gives me a peace of mind knowing that maybe sometimes happy endings can happen even if it was not for my family.


    • ***SPOILER ALERT*** Absolutely LOVED this book. I laughed & cried throughout this book. Still love Mark but Ryan wow this guy blew me away! It broke my heart when he made his discussion to stop trying. But happy ending so far. I cried at the Drive :( I loved his proposal :D lolLooking forward to the next book!


    • LOVED this book! Quite honestly I really ended up so disappointed with the first book that I was hesitant to read this one. I decided to give the book and the author another try and BOY I am so glad I did! What a terrific story and for me personally the author and "Layla" were redeemed in my eyes, LOL! 5 stars for sure


    • loving the Moretti clanThis book was about Ryan another playboy of the group who falls hard & fast for layla.This story is bitter sweet, heartache hits the group but they all stick together and get through it giving this read a beautiful ending.All the characters are a great group of close friends, playboys who one by one meet their girl. looking forward to reading Calebs story.


    • What can I say. I loved this book. I cried both happy and sad tears for Ryan and Layla. Also for Sophie. I could not put this one down. I hope that MJ can find some more Moretti boys after her current stories are told. Because I love these Moretti boys and look forward to more. Thanks, MJ


    • Wow. This book blew me away. I absolutely loved Mark Moretti but I have to say Ryan stole my heart. This book made me laugh and cry (ALOT) but I LOVED IT!!!! I can't wait for the next book, November won't come soon enough. I HIGHLY recommend this series, you will definitely enjoy them.


    • I love this book!!! I really liked the first one but I love this one so much more! I laughed and cried like a baby reading this book. Ryan just makes you love him I can not wait until the 3rd comes out.




    • 'Taming The Playboy' is not your typical bad boy, confirmed bachelor, who meets his match story. Oh no this book takes on an emotional rollercoaster that is rarely seen. This is the second in the Moretti Series about a group of male friends who swear that they remain single and enjoy the beneftis of being single. While the first book in the series was and set the scene perfectly for what was to follow, it didn't blow my socks off like 'Taming The Playboy' did. That being said it is well worth a [...]


    • WOW I don't even know where to start without giving the whole book away. So I guess the only place to start is with Ryan. He is for sure a playboy! He was crazy and lived life to the max! We meet both Layla and Ryan in book one and I knew there was chemistry but WOW was I thrown for a loop with this one. I was like you could feel the sexual tension radiating out of the pages (on kindle lol) Once we finally got a feel for them and we were so excited everything was going to work out BAM! everythin [...]


    • I just don't think I can continue this series. -There is absolutely no communication between these characters at all! It would solve all their problems.-Ryan is just as big of a moronic douchbag as Mark is! Does Ryan not think to mention his relationship with Aria to Layla or maybe even introduce them? Maybe give Layla a little bit of an explanation before parading Aria around, sitting her on his lap, having her stay with him??? He says he didn't realize that Layla didn't know who Aria was, but [...]


    • The second book in the series and probably my favourite out of the three I've read so far. Ryan West is your ultimate playboy, who works hard and plays hard and protects his heart. Then he meets Layla, Sophie's sister whose story we heard in the first book. The attraction is instantaneous. They both decide that they will continue to be with one another and have a bit of fun. Neither thought they'd fall in love. What I enjoyed about this story was it wasn't just about them falling in love. Ryan h [...]


    • Stars: 3Overall: Ryan is a personally trainer to the stars and a man-whore until he meets Layla. There is something instantly about her that attracts him and makes him want something different in his life. They start things a little fast and after Caleb sticking his nose problems that he shouldn't, it makes a big accident happen. Right when you think that everything is going to work itself out for our couple, Ryan gets his sickness back and that just breaks them apart in more ways than one, but [...]


    • You meet Ryan West in the first installment of this series Taming the Bachelor who is one of Mark Morietti's close firends. Ryan's story was a little different than Mark's meaning that Ryan as a child suffered from a form of leukemia that he had to deal with at a young age.In Taming the Bachelor Ryan meets Sophie's sister Layla who is alot different the her big sister. Layla is not shy, fun loving, tatooed, and loves hot sex! So Layla and Ryan hook up as a onetime thing only to have it turn out [...]


    • Ryan West learned at an early age that forever is never promised. Deciding to live each moment to the fullest, Ryan spends his days as a personal trainer to the rich and famous and his nights in the arms of a vast array of women. As a playboy, his motto is to work hard but play even harder. When his best friend introduces him to his attractive and soon to be sister in law, Ryan doesn’t think twice about throwing caution to the wind and bedding the woman that should be off limits. The sparks th [...]


    • When Ryan West was introduced in Taming the Bachelor, he was the epitome of Playboy. If it was a female, available, and willing he was under them (or over them) in a heartbeat. However, Ryan is the ultimate "Playboy" for a reason. He believes that living life to the fullest, especially when you've been given a second chance to live. Then he meets Layla. Can Layla be the one to tame his wicked ways? How does Layla go about taming the one who swore that marriage was not meant for him. When you tak [...]


    • This is book 2 in the Moretti Novels I don't know where to begin. This book tore me apart. I didnt like Layla AT ALL in book 1 and the very beginning of book 2 but i can honestly say, she redeemed herself 1000% and I grew to love her very much.Ryan, damn. I loved him from the start, but the man broke me . I so very rarely cry, but Ryan had me sobbing my heart out. I had been crushing on Mark big time, and then along came Ryan and stole my heart. There is one sentence, one scene that sticks with [...]


    • Where do I begin. Ryan West. WOW! <3 Okay so when I read book one.Taming the Bachelor - I thought yeh. this is okay good I mean who wouldn't want a Mark Moretti. but then I started this one and fell in LOVE with Ryan. The story of he and Layla is so good. You know a one night - no string attached - kind of thing yeh that doesn't really work in this situation. Sneaking around behind all their friends backs. finally just saying F' it and telling everyone they are together. Their friends laughin [...]
