Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2) by Lisa Lanay was a quick romantic read. I enjoyed the quick straight forward read. I enjoyed the characters, Shannon was a great read. I loved her independence and her family dynamic. Zane was kind of your typical alpha male, there was a lot of good development with him. The plot was enjoyable and the pacing was great too.
Taming Zane is the 2nd book in the Almost Perfect Series by Lisa Lanay. Characters from the first book Loving Jake appear in this book but both books can be read as a stand-alone. As they are such awesome books, I would recommend reading both and if you are you going to read both well, you may as well read them on order lol.
In Taming Zane, handsome plastic surgeon meets gorgeous professor Shannon McGregor on a flight home. She is on a trip to San Francisco to have an interview at the university. When Shannon loses her purse Zane becomes her knight in shining armour and lets her stay in his apartment.
I really enjoyed reading Shannon and Zane’s journey. Their chemistry is amazing but while she wants a relationship, Zane is the eternal bachelor. This book is funny and sweet mostly but then there are times that you want to bang the 2 main character’s heads together and tell them to get their act together.
There are also some really great secondary characters including Shannon’s brothers. Surely there’s a book or 2, or 3 among them. As well as these new characters, I loved getting to see Jake and Kimberly again from the first book.
I look forward to see what Lisa Lanay brings with the rest of this series. I for one, will definitely be reading whatever she produces.
Taming Zane is the second book in the Almost Perfect series by Lisa Lanay. This is a contemporary romance- with a little drama, chemistry, humour, emotion, and more. This is Zane and Shannon’s story- who kept me entertained the whole way through. That’s not to say there weren’t times I wanted to shake some sense into them both, but I enjoyed how things came together in the end.
Here’s to book #3!
Thank you, Ms. Lanay!

I absolutely loved this read. It was a happy, fun, sweet read! Shannon and Zane were perfect for each other. Zane is a smoking hot plastic surgeon who travels the world to donate his time to others who are in need. Shannon is close with her family…much closer then you can imagine. Her and her brothers all love within feet of each other. Shannon is flying to California for an interview for a grant. When some sexy stud sits next to her on the plane, she doesn’t know how she will get through her flight. Lucky for her, Zane is a really nice guy and is down to earth. They spend some of the flight getting to know each other and Zane gives Shannon her number so she can give him a call and he can get the name of a real estate agent his brother used. If the interview goes well, Shannon will be moving there for a little bit.
Luckily for Shannon, she finds Zane’s number and decides to call him when she she’s out shopping and realizes her wallet is not in her tote bag. Did she leave it in a store or did someone take it out of her bag? Zane is there for her In a heartbeat and let’s her stay at his place while she tries to figure out a plan. Zane and Shannon are perfect for each other but, Shannon doesn’t plan on moving from her family and Zane has patients who wait months for an appointment with him.
How can something so long distance work?
You have to read this book and see if they are able to
Overcome the distance.
I thought this book was just an all around great read with great writing and a great storyline that will grab your attention and keep it from the first chapter.

These two have a lot of learning to do. Compromise is the platform of marriage. Each of them is so stubborn. I could see the changes in Zane since he started as a player. Shannon I struggled with her growth. She had small steps. Her family or more accurately her brothers….they are definite future books! Protective, annoying and they just seemed to be sexy men. I also loved the tie in to Taming Jake (Book 1).
My only small issue was the child. He seemed nonexistent. I don’t think a woman (with child) would consider marrying a man without making sure they all formed a good relationship (including the child). I’m pretty sure all three had never been in the same room until the end. So that’s my bump in the road. The author did a nice job smoothing the situation over and it glossed up nicely.
Overall this is a good story. It rolls along nicely and has some surprising elements. The emotion between the characters is felt. There is also some humor that adds charm to the book.
Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2) by Lisa Lanay. This was just what I needed. Something not too heavy and a fun read. The characters have a chemistry that jumps off the pages. Sometimes life likes to change what you have planned and this book shows that when Shannon meets Zane. The characters are relatable and had me completely hooked from page one. I read this in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. It’s a sweet heart warming story that I really enjoyed. Excited to see where this author takes readers next. Five stars all the way and highly recommended.
Taming Zane is the second book in the Almost Perfect Series by Lisa Lanay. Lisa Lanay’s characters are complex and very lovable. The story line is engaging and simple. It is the simple things that make the world go around. It is refreshing to read a book that can pull into the story and take you away from the real world troubles for a while. This is a romance story with some humor to the story. Shannon and Zane is the couple in this story. Their story is one of sacrifice, love, and fate. Can Shannon and Zane become the cutest book couple or will the sacrifices be too much for their relationship.
Taming Zane by Lisa Lanay is the second book in the Almost Perfect series. This book can be read as a stand-alone although it does reference the characters from the previous book.
I found this to be a really easy book to get into. The story kicked off straight away and was enjoyable immediately. The characters were easy to like and were fun and engaging.
Although there were a few times where the story seemed to lose direction or momentum a little it was still enough to keep my attention the whole way through. This was a fun book to read and I hope we get more from the series in the future.
Taming Zane is book number two in the Almost Perfect Series written by Lisa Lanay. I read the first book and as usual I would recommend reading any series in order. I have loved both books from start to finish and finished both of them in pretty much one day. In this installment Shannon is off to California to have an interview at a College. While on the plane she meets Zane Taylor who is smoking hot and charming, with his beautiful smile and dimples. A few hours in to her trip, Shannon finds herself in a tight spot and low and behold, Zane comes to her rescue. The character descriptions in this story were amazing. You were able to feel all of the emotions of the characters. You can feel the pull and connection of the attraction between the two. I loved how it progressed from a friendly conversation to slightly flirty. I liked how Lisa built up a rapport between the two before they had any kind of relationship. Shannon and Zane go so well together and I really enjoyed their story. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next installment in the series.
Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2) by Lisa Lanay is a contemporary romance that you will enjoy. Lisa has written yet again characters that you cannot help falling in love with. They are well written and well-rounded and Lisa has created a world that you want to be a part of, take the journey with them. It is a story where he doesn’t want a relationship and she does, only to find that she is everything he never knew he wanted. From good looking guy to savior, to friend and a romp between the sheets to you can’t be anything more, to OMG I love her makes me want to smack some of these men but I’ve said it before and I will say it again, it doesn’t matter how many contemporary romances there are written, if the writer does a good job and Miss Lisa does a good job then it is worth the read.
