For twenty-three years, Cross Carlson was a playboy. You know the type. Tall, dark, and wealthy. Blue-eyed. Charming. He seemed to have it all so easy. But Cross was harboring a terrible secret - one that helped ruin the life of an innocent girl and almost ended his own.

Finally out of the hospital, Cross is flailing, scarred in both body and mind and stifled by the weight of the secret he still keeps. The only way to absolution lies in a Mexican convent, and going there could cost him everything.

If there's anyone who knows what it's like to screw up big time, it's Meredith Kinsey. Just a few years ago, Merri was an ordinary girl with a job at her college newspaper and white picket fence kind of dreams. Now she's holed up in a Mexican convent, hiding from a drug lord who thinks he owns her.

What happens when the only way out of hell is with the son of the man who put you there? They say love conquers all, but does it really?
“Sometimes good people make mistakes. You know how you can tell if you're one of the good ones?” “No,” she whispers, tiny in the dark. “Because good people feel guilty afterward.”

I have to say that I was excited to start Taming Cross since the moment I found out that Cross would have his own book! :D Although we didn't get much of him in Selling Scarlett I did love the parts he was in and was interested in knowing his story. And it was just as great as the first book in the Love Inc. series!

After suffering through a devastating accident and waking up from a coma Cross Carlson is left with much more scars than the physical. Months later Cross is struggling to accept his new situation and is pretty depressive. And there is the fact that he has been keeping his fathers secret for so long that the guilt is killing him. When he takes matters into his own hand he goes in search of Misty and is set on saving her. Even if he isn't 100% psychically able to. And when he finds "Misty" Cross finds much more than he might have bargained for. 

Meredith has been hiding from the Cartel and the man that she was sold to for a while. But when they discover where she is and start to attack the people she cares about Merri decides to go back. Her story isn't the one that everyone thinks it is. She has made decisions that ruined her life but Merri's heart is in the right place and all she wishes for is a better future where she isn't afraid all the time. Love, family and happiness is the one thing she think she can never have. Until Cross rescues her and shows her that she is worth saving. 
"He leans in close enough to steal the air out of my lungs and presses a kiss against my forehead. “And that’s why I can’t walk away, even though I know I should. My father might have found you first, but you were always mine.”
Along the way the two fight tooth and nail to escape the clutches of the cartel. But they also find in each other something they have never thought they deserved. A second chance at life. 

Pick up the second installment of Love Inc. and enjoy Cross's story!!
