‘Tall, Tatted, and Tempting’, by Tammy Falkner | Book Review #161

 

18089551She’s locked up tight. But he might be the key.

Logan Reed is tall, tatted and tempting. Kit’s a woman with a mean right hook and a secret.

Kit wants a tattoo, but Logan sees more than she intends to share in the drawing of the tat she wants. He sees her in ways no one ever has.

Logan’s not disabled; but he hasn’t spoken in eight years. He hasn’t needed to. Until he meets Kit.

Logan doesn’t know everything about Kit. Kit doesn’t know anything about herself, until she has to sacrifice all she ever wanted to save what’s most important to him.

This book is not meant for individuals under the age of 18 due to adult language, adult sexuality and adult situations.”


Tall, Tatted and Tempting is the first book in a huge series written by Tammy Falkner, called The Reed Brothers. There are quite a few sexual scenes, so if you’re not into that (sex), Tall, Tatted and Tempting may not be for you.

I’ve yet to come across a New Adult book that doesn’t actually have sex scenes in them.

I enjoyed learning about Kit and Logan, as much as I loved delving into their story and the love they share. The rest of this review contains spoilers.

I know I just said that Tall, Tatted and Tempting is a New Adult and contains some seriously steamy moments, I’ve learned that I loved these moments as much as the moments where they don’t have sex.

Kit is a girl who has dealt with stuff people should never have to deal with. Nothing traumatizing happened to Kit, it’s just that she needed a big break from her home life. And where she ended up is where it turns out she needed to be. I adore Kit and her strong will to keep her life secret. Not many people have that kind of conviction. Kit deals with her homelessness with the only way she knew how: she played her music.

Logan leads a different life than I would have imagined for a character in a New Adult book. I don’t want to be a bore and say that “Logan is such a deep character,” but he kind of is. There are levels to him that many people in his world don’t see; refuse to see, and for that his circle is small. But there are other reasons why Logan’s world is small as well. Before he met Kit, Logan was renowned in his world as the guy to have sex with. Girls would call him a god of sorts. Which in my opinion is so eye-roll worthy. Apart from that, the main reason why Logan’s world is small is because Logan is deaf.

When Logan and Kit meet, I dare to say that there was an immediate attraction between the two of them. After their initial meeting, Logan brings Kit into his world, and in return Kit has this innate ability to make Logan try new things. The two of them are a perfect match for each other.

Both Logan and Kit have had their fair share of shit happen to them in their life time. They’ve both dealt with it differently than others would have. They’ve dealt with it differently because they were in two very different situations. Yet in the end, they somehow both arrived at the same meeting point. I’m forever glad that that Falkner didn’t write Kit and Logan’s back story to be this tragic-weepy-eye story that a lot of authors do.

A few things I love about this story are: I love the fact that Logan and Kit have their disabilities. I love that people with disabilities are being brought into different stories, one book at a time. I love and appreciate that Falkner decided to include the brothers in this book. That Tall, Tatted and Tempting is about Kit and Logan as much as it’s about Logan’s family as well. To have the secondary characters written and talked about in the way that they are; each having their own lives, own problems, makes Tall, Tatted and Tempting incredibly realistic and only makes me want to read the rest of the series. — There’s one thing I have to say about everything: I’m glad Kit’s mother got her shit together and started sticking up for her daughter like a mother should, instead of having Kit’s father walk all over his daughter. …There’s still some improvement that I would love to see from Kit’s mom, but I honestly doubt it.

Speaking about the series!!! Holy crap! I didn’t know that this is the first book in a 9 book series! Excluding(!) the short stories. I don’t know if I’ll ever finish the series, but I do know that I want to read the next book Smart, Sexy and Secretive straight away!!

Once I knew read the synopsis of Tall, Tatted and Tempting, I knew I had to read this book right away! I’m glad I downloaded and read this book. Falkner’s writing and Kit’s story drew me in incredibly quickly. And the way that Faulkner writes; everything plays out so smoothly, I just fell into the book and didn’t leave until I hit the last word of the entire book. I read this book so quickly!!

I ended up giving Tall, Tatted and Tempting 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

That’s all I have for my review of Tall, Tatted and Tempting (by Tammy Falkner)! Thank you so much for reading!
