Our Review

‘Years from now, I’d be able to pinpoint the exact moment I lost my heart completely for the first time. Hopefully the only time, if I had anything to say about it.’

If you’re a mood reader like us and like to scroll through your kindle to find the perfect book to suit your mood you may be lucky like us and find a gem of a story. We needed something sweet, romantic, funny and light with an added bonus of the Christmas feels. Untrainable ticked every box and then some. It pretty much had everything and we had a perma smile on our face with a few moments of heart-breaking sadness thrown in. Untrainable was our first book by author Jamie Schlosser but it certainly won’t be our last. Beautifully written, great characters and full of emotion, we’ll be checking out more books by this author.

‘I’m a broke, washed-up, has-been reality star who isn’t even famous for anything other than being a giant screw-up.’

The theme of this story is reality shows – the ups and downs, and how fickle an audience can be. The world is full of judgement and everyone thinks they know who a person is from their appearances on the screen as well as their social media. Anyone can be anyone, but it’s all surface until you get beneath the layers of a person and what their life has truly been like and still is. People show others what they want them to see. It’s also a story of family, how important our experiences are with loved ones, which leave a mark.

‘Now this…This was home. I rubbed at my sternum, where an ache of longing filled my chest.’

Theo is in need of a public persona redemption. He grew up on a reality show but quickly became the resident bad boy whose final downfall was a drunken pee on a fire hydrant in front of the paparazzi. Whilst he’s from a wealthy family, he’s as broke as they come, which when we learn the story behind this our hearts broke for him. Theo is a lonely man sat in his apartment becoming obsessed by Hadley, a gorgeous and sweet reality star. He stalks her online until he knows everything there is to know and comes up with a brilliant plan to redeem himself and meet the woman he’s lost his heart to.

‘I knew love wasn’t something he’d received much of in his life, but he was about to get a big, heaping pile of it. A love dumping, you could say. Something called tough love.’

Hadley is a family oriented wholesome girl who loves dogs and is known for training them. After a stint on a reality show she’s found her niche so when approached for a new show she jumps at the chance. Little does she know that saying yes will change her life in so many ways.

‘I reluctantly slid my hands away, knowing I needed to let go now. Any embrace outlasting five Mississippi’s with a stranger was highly inappropriate.’

We fell in love with Theo and Hadley. Both were brilliantly written characters who had a real connection and laugh out loud banter. The instant attraction grew into something so much more and we felt it every step of the way. Their story was so entertaining and there were moments where we couldn’t stop laughing at the shenanigans from other characters too. So original, so romantic and so very Christmassy fun! Untrainable is a story of romance and love, it’s a story of families and how our past can shape our future. If you’re a romantic at heart, love dogs as well as Christmas, you will fall in love with this book!

 

Synopsis

It doesn’t take much to become the laughing stock of reality television. Just ask Theodore “Theo-Dog” Legend. Once you’ve pissed on a fire hydrant in front of the paparazzi, no one ever lets you forget it.

Hadley Holiday is on her way to being America’s sweetheart, thanks to her dog training routine on a national talent show. Although she didn’t win first prize, she snagged Theo’s attention and he’ll do just about anything to make her his—even if it means being the butt of everyone’s joke once again.

Hadley wants a career in showbiz. Theo needs to get rid of that doggone nickname—pun intended. Pairing the two together on a new show sounds like a disaster waiting to happen… or it could be the best thing that’s ever happened to them.
