I really liked this “me-Tarzan-you-Jane” story. Hero carried the romance. He didn’t care about anything but claiming heroine as his. But because he did care for her & knew that she cared about societal rules & such, he gave her just enough space she needed. He learned to speak because it helped him voice out his previously-kept thoughts and because she wanted his words. Albeit some of his progress seemed implausible for someone who’s had virtually no contact for 12 years, he learned to speak & behave mannerly with speed. He worked on facing his childhood fears & didn’t let the men from his past intimidate him. Heroine was drawn to him even when he was acting like a wild man. They were kindred spirits with music & understood each other without words. I loved how Galen captured this. It made for an exciting sexual chemistry & sexy love scenes. My only qualm about virgin Hero who has had no exposure to sex (including in books he read as a child) was his knowledge of what to do sexually. That seemed hard to believe. Some clumsiness and even cluelessness during sex and then learning about what works for each other would’ve been more realistic but still sexy for both these virgin characters. Aside from these minor issues, this book was an enjoyable & speedy read.
