Taming the Boy Next Door Banner Taming the Boy Next Door Cover


Caleb Allen was your typical boy next door.  Growing up in a prestigious suburb of Los Angeles, he lived a life most only dreamed about.  As one of the original Moretti men, he caught the eye of countless women with his clean cut good looks and chivalry.  But behind closed doors, he commanded attention, becoming a dominant force that was anything but timid.
After a misunderstanding that jeopardized the wellbeing of the group and a near fatal accident that nearly cost him his best friend, Mark Moretti, Caleb was determined to become the loyal and devoted man he had been in the past.  The minute Dr. Jena Turner stepped from the ICU with news of Mark’s condition, Caleb’s world spun off its axis.  Several chance encounters only deepened his desire to make her his. He longed to prove that the life he preferred was one of pleasure and passion. 
But, Jena Turner has a secret that haunts her.  Hiding from her past, a simple moment in the heat of passion sends her running in fear.  An unlikely confidant can either push her back into Caleb’s arms or give him a taste of his own medicine.  Can Jena step into a lifestyle that reminded her of the darkest day of her past? 
Broken and defeated, Caleb questions everything he knows about love.  Can he prove to Jena that love is worth the risk or will he watch her walk out of his life forever? 
Taming the Boy Next Door is the third novel in the Moretti Novels by MJ Carnal.

I enjoyed this book so much. MJ Carnal did an amazing job with this book. The characters are people that you can relate to and probably people that you know and are in your family.

Caleb is someone that you just can’t get enough of. He’s considerate, he’s a business man, he takes care of his friends and family and thinks of everyone but himself. So what’s so wrong about that? He likes the control and can’t give it up.

Caleb met Dr. Jena Turner at a time in his life where things were uncertain and the future was not what he envisioned. He was currently with someone who didn’t see him for him. Although she allowed him to be “himself,” she really didn’t know him.

Jena became a part of the Moretti family when she was there at a time that things were unsure. She had grown to love them and consider them family, when her family was not around. In her mind, she was abandoned at time that was she “left the world.” She longed to have what she saw with this family. She had it and didn’t realize it.
The heartbreak that they both had to go through to get to a point on both of their lives was difficult but needed.  MJ Carnal wrote an amazing story and you’ve definitely missed out if you haven’t read Taming the Bachelor and Taming the Playboy. The story was outstanding…a definite 4 star read.

The next story is going to be an amazing read and I can’t wait for it to come out. Kudos to MJ Carnal for a excellent read and I will definitely be reading them again
