Cavan Carmichael has just transferred to LAPD from rural Oregon. It's Halloween and he's expecting...well, the unexpected, since it's the time of spooky things, and this is LA, after all. Nobody, however, could have predicted an animal abuse call that turns out to reveal a beaten, chained-up man in a garden shed.
Then comes the words that Cavan knows will haunt him for life: "Don't worry, I'm tame."
Cavan rescues the man who, underneath the bruises and blood, is very handsome. And mysterious. Nothing about the stranger adds up. Nothing he says makes sense. For every medical test the doctors perform, only more questions arise. When Ludo, as he insists he be called, is admitted to the hospital, he has grievous injuries inflicted by a despicable assailant via antique torture instruments.
Unbelievably, Ludo's injuries heal fast and Cavan, who visits the recuperating man, is astonished to find he is attracted and protective of the man. But can Cavan overlook the oddities, such as bristles under the man's tongue? The strange wolf hairs in his wounds? Is the most beautiful man Cavan has ever seen really...tame?

Cavan has not only an unusual name but an unusual family. His mother a retired cop picked up an unusual collecting habit that has left him and his sister scratching their heads. Add on an unusual call leading to the finding a man named Ludo chained abused and bleeding in a shed on an animal abuse call. What do you say to a man who is broken, bloodied, abused and incredibly sexy when he says “don’t worry I’m tame”? The Answer to all those questions takes you through a Wonder Book Called Tame By AJ Llewellyn.

This is AJ’s first attempt at a werewolf tale and I can honestly say that I hope like hell that there are more to follow. Ludo and Cavan are realistic characters who are believable, down to earth and relatable. If I didn’t know that this was a work of fiction I would have easily thought that they were real people. I have noticed with all of His works (even the ones he has co-wrote) AJ goes above and beyond to make his characters believable and relatable. Tame is no different. Cavan is a slightly broken man trying to pick up the pieces to his broken life only to be thrusted into something bigger than him. His family is nuts and this is relatable come on let’s be honest we all have friends and family who are nutters or do nutty things. However I would like to point out that I personally think AJ watches Way to Much of Hoarders.

Without giving to much away I can say that every little thing that happenes and doesn’t happen is relative to the story. Tame like so many of AJ’s books leaves you wanting more. Tame is a breathtakingly haunting story about finding your way in a crazy world and being ok with it. It’s about finding love in the most inconvenient of places (hmmm PLOT idea for DJ’s Next Inconvenient Love Novel). But mostly I think its about believing in the unbelievable and understanding the things in life that are sometimes hard to understand.

On my Erect Peni Scale of 1-10 Tame deserves 10 erect Peni and a cold shower warning. Even though there isn’t as much HOT Steamy Sex in this shorter story… What is there Is HOT as Hell and leave you in need of a cold shower.

On my Need to Have scale (remember 1 is it can wait till payday and 10 sell the kids) this is a 10... Sell the kids (furry or real) this is a Must read!!

On a side note I would like to mention that this is one of many books in a collection of shorts for Halloween Called Howling at the Moon. There are some AWESOME writers that I have had the pleasure of reading before. You can find the whole Collection here http://www.amberquill.com/AmberAllure/AP_HowlingAtMoon2011.html

Amber Quill is an Awesome Publisher because they not only Release the Anthology they release the singles at the same time. That way you don’t have to read someone you don’t know HOWEVER I WANT TO HIGHLY Suggest to all my Readers to get the whole series. The writers are TOP notch and all deserve a shout out.
