Review of 'Taming Tyler' by Rebecca Rembish

YA Contemporary Romance
2nd In the Texting Tyler Series
Date Published: 2/18/13


In Rebecca Rembish's premier novel, 'texting tyler', Chris lives in the shadow of his older brother, struggling to be the popular one... the good looking one... the one all the girls adored.

No doubt about it, Tyler Clarke is hot. Tyler Clarke has a reputation. Tyler Clarke has been with every girl in school. Tyler Clarke is also a virgin... or at least he was until his first date with Lori Matthews.

One thing Tyler could never seem to avoid was a label. Good or bad, no label had ever bothered him quite as much as the one he received from Lori. What was it about her that made him care so much? Why was she different from all the other girls he ever met?

While Tyler never made decisions on a future beyond high school, Lori is a planner. After graduation, she decides to spend her first year at home and attend the community college for two reasons. She needs more time to plan her future and she needs to save money. Tyler and what came next were never part of her plan.

With an uncertain future, a pregnant girlfriend and not many people to turn to, Tyler struggles with one of the toughest years of his life.

Lori's careful plans are turned upside down. The fear of raising a baby in the same difficult circumstances she grew up with and a relationship that scares her to death, Lori must make the most heart wrenching decision of her life.

**My thoughts**

I really enjoyed 'Texting Tyler,' so I was happy to take on the second book in the series. I enjoy getting to know the real Tyler better. He was a huge part of that first book, even though his character wasn't physically present for most of it. I suspected that Tyler was damaged in one way or another during that book, but not to what extent. This story presents Tyler in all of his broken glory. You even start to feel sorry for him as his thoughts and feelings come into play.

Lori is a perfect match for him, even though neither one of them every imagined that they would be in any kind of situation together. They especially didn't expect to have all of this happen, with a baby on the way and everything. You will find yourself wondering what you would do if you were in their situation.
