Taming Rafe has spurts of action occurring almost right from the beginning until the end. Within the book itself, Warren offers snippets of another novel, Unshackled, which one of the characters wrote and many other characters read during the course of the story. This technique gives insight into the characters thoughts and emotions through their reactions to the story. The characters relationships with one another unfold in more detail as the novel progresses.
Katherine Breckinridge is holding an extravagant fundraising event in her grandfathers hotel when her party is literally crashed by Rafe Nobles pickup truck. Determined to make Rafe pay for the damages he caused her sinking charity program, Katherine chases Rafe to Phillips, Montana, where her cowboy father once lived, and where Rafe is staying at his familys ranch. Unfortunately for Katherine, or Kat, Rafe is bordering on broke. However, Kat has an idea to raise the money her charity needs, with Rafes help. After getting off on the wrong foot, Kat gets Rafe to show her the workings of the ranch, and the two become close as they begin to crack one anothers outer shells.
Rafe agrees to help Kat with her plan. When Kats gracious, but seemingly overprotective hostess, Lolly, fears that Rafe will break Kats heart, she calls Bradley, Kats refined New York boyfriend. Bradley arrives in Phillips and takes Kat back to New York to get married, breaking both Rafes and Kats hearts. However, when a bull riding competition takes place in New York and the truth about Bradley is revealed, a final showdown gives Rafe and Kat another chance.
Kat is sweet and optimistic, looking for answers about her past and support for the program she believes in. Rafe is rough on the outside, but soft on the inside, trying to live up to his professional reputation but move on from his sad past. When the two are put together, Rafe brings out the confidence Kat needs, and Kat gives Rafe the motivation to be the best man he can be. They find friends and unexpected family among other characters, who provide them with love, support, and wisdom.
Taming Rafe is an entertaining novel that portrays how God uses others to show people His plan for their lives. Since the story is told from both male and female characters perspectives, it could be appropriate for readers of both genders. Even if you arent a big fan of westerns, it would be safe to try this book. Taming Rafe is full of action, romance, and warmth, and is just fun to read! -- Laura Coulter, Christian Book Previews.com
MandyJohannesburg, South AfricaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Couldn't put it downOctober 3, 2014MandyJohannesburg, South AfricaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This had to be my favourite of the 3 Noble Sibling novels. The brokenness and tortured soul of Rafe just resonates so clearly through the entire book. We can all relate to Rafe on some level. His issues of never feeling like he is good enough or doesn't measure up pushes him to don the cloak of the brave bull rider, seeming to never care, yet caring on a very deep level. I couldn't put this book down. I just had to keep the pages turning to see if Rafe would finally accept that he is valuable and loved!! You have to read this book, it will draw you in from the first page and you won't put it down till you've reached the last page.
