Dex is the typical badboy of the group, overindulging in booze&babes whilst fighting awful demons, until a strong independant woman turns his head and captures his attention!!
The intense attraction is immediate and edge of your seat stuff!!
You dont NEED to read the first 3 books, or other books from the same 'world' but it does add to the overall atmosphere!!
Well done Zoey, another satisfied fan&in turn a satisfied partner 😜!!!!
But Ms Derrick isn’t finished with the 69Bottles yet and in this book it is Dex’s turn to get the ubiquitous Ms Derrick treatment – Oh isn’t he a lucky boy!!!
Dex is the drummer and I do like a man that can handle the sticks – he’s got good hands and he puts them to excellent use- on and off the stage.
He isn’t shy about his exploits either but I have to say I loved him!! He was such a strong character and the author gave him to us lock stock and smoking guns, because from the get-go we get to see the man beneath the image, the man that he tries to hide, not only his past but the Dex that really is worth loving, he has such a big heart that I was astonished at the way he felt about the world around him, his place in it.
I think I felt as if he really didn’t get the fact that who he was on the inside was what made him a beautiful person, yes, he may be an ass at times (a lot of the time, I get it) but he was loveable!
Things get interesting when Raine joins the tour, to work with the band. I have to say that I liked her right off the bat, she was so feisty that she sparkled on the page, she had been through some crap in her time but the knocks that she had taken had made her who she was and she was a no nonsense girl. She might just need that fight to tame the wild man of the band!Read more ›
I’m relatively new to the 69 Bottles series, having just read the first only a few months before. I haven’t read the books in between but I didn’t feel it was an issue. Yes, it’s an interconnected standalone again but easily readable. I met Dex in the first one and I wasn’t sure what I thought about his character in all honesty. He certainly looked like a guy with plenty demons to contend with. Here we get his story and get to the bottom of who he is and why he is the way he is.
When I first started reading it and Raine comes on the scene I started to worry I was just going to get a repeat of book one. The M/M/F scene kind of threw me a little and I almost stopped reading. I got past that scene and managed to read this straight through afterwards. Both Dex and Raine are very flawed characters and I really enjoyed how their story ran. It’s no secret that Dex is that ultimate manwhore, bad boy so to see him fall for someone was really something. For that person to be Raine, well, two halves really do make a whole. Their path wasn’t easy that’s for sure but the chemistry was there in spades. Storyline wise, it was fine. I didn’t find it as engaging as the first and I’m not sure why, maybe because it was my second Zoey derrick read, who knows?
I’d recommend this no problem, but I would say that you should go back and read the previous books in the story. There are a lot of secondary characters woven through this too that add to the scenes. There’s more to come as it appears and I for one can’t wait.
You know how some series just never get any better than the first book? They might still be good but that first one will always be the best? Well, that is NOT the case of Zoey Derrick’s 69 Bottles series. Considering it started out with such an awesome beginning I can hardly believe that it just keeps getting better and better…but mind boggling as it is, it does! I admit to being slightly sad at the end of Addison, Talon and Kyle’s trilogy. I knew there was no way I could like any other band member’s story as much as theirs. Zoey absolutely proved me wrong with Taming Dex! This is the best in the series yet (yes, I keep saying that after each one but I swear on my first born that it’s the truth!) and I can’t find the words to express how excited I am for this series to keep growing.
I always liked Dex in the other books. He’s a hot drummer who is a self-admitted manwhore and proud of it. His honesty about who he is was always part of the charm. What you see is what you get. Or is it? This book delves into the real Dex. Not just the Dex with a magnificent d**k and knows how to use it. (Although that is part of what I love about him….just being honest…) Never did I think I would fall in love with him, as in actually care about who he was in his heart. I had never thought there was much in there. Once again Zoey set out to prove me wrong. Dex is definitely a slow learner and makes his share of mistakes but he’s much more complex than how he first appeared.
Raine works for the same agency that Addison came from and ends up working on tour with the band. She’s smart, spunky, beautiful and has some painful experiences and secrets that have shaped who she is. In this way, she and Dex are a lot alike.Read more ›
