✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Taming Wes by Melissa Ellen

Taming Wes
A Small Town Friends to Lovers Romance
The Billingsley Series, Book 3
By: Melissa Ellen
Narrated by: Meg Sylvan & Neill Thorne

I had no expectations of a future with him. We wanted the same thing. An incredible night that would make me forget...

I have one rule: I don't do relationships.

The last thing I need in my life is a woman trying to tie me down.

There was only one woman I’d ever considered breaking my rule for. That was, until I received her wedding invitation in the mail. 

I learned my lesson after that, and I don’t make the same mistake twice. I reinforced my walls and never considered letting them down again. Not even for the mysterious, gorgeous new woman in town. 

Friends, I can do. Friends with benefits, even better. But that’s where I draw the line. Problem is, Devin is standing on the other side of it.

There are four stand-alone books in the Billingsley series:

  1. Redeeming Lottie - Tucker and Lottie
  2. Chasing Hannah - Billy and Hannah
  3. Taming Wes - Wes and Devin
  4. Tempting Tim - Tim and Conley

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've loved Wes since his appearance in book one of Melissa Ellen's Billingsley Series, so it's no surprise that I loved his book. I'll admit that when I listened to the prologue, I fully expected a different leading lady, but Devin is exactly the kind of woman that Wes needs. She maybe doesn't give his snark back to him as well as Hannah, but she still keeps him on his toes. And he can't get enough of her even when he's determined to stay away - he's certainly good at cutting ties given his Billingsley playboy status. 
If you're familiar with the Billingsley series, then you know it's packed full of terrific characters, and we even get to catch up with the couples from books one and two. It's also full of great dialogue with no shortage of snark and sarcasm, a bit of steamy goodness, and an emotional story for a couple you can't get enough of. Another thing I've noticed is that Melissa Ellen has a knack for picking narrators. So far in this series, each couple has been read by a different pair of narrators, and like the first two books, she couldn't have chosen better for these characters. Meg Sylvan and Neill Thorne do Devin and Wes perfectly. From the witty dialogue to the emotions and chemistry between them, these two give that little something extra to the characters and their story. Narrator performance can make or break an audiobook, and in this case, it's definitely the former. 
To sum it up. Taming Wes is thoroughly engaging and entertaining, and it's my favorite in the Billingsley series so far.
