Review: Tall, Tatted & Tempting by Tammy Faulkner
Series: The Reed Brothers (Book 1)
Publication Date: 17th June 2013
She’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.
My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
It took me two attempts to read this book. First attempt, I thought it was ok but it didn't grip me and was quickly overtaken by more exciting books. As such, it fell - half read - down the reading pile, until I'd pretty much forgotten about it.
Attempt two... Wasn't much better to be honest, beyond that I started from the beginning again - for it had been so long - and managed to read it all the way through.
It just failed to click for me.
Logan - the male lead - was gorgeous, tattooed, unbelievably sweet and sexy. Kit - the female lead - was likeable enough once you got past the crunchy exterior. The speed their relationship developed was deserving of an eye-roll, as was the "deaf guy who only talks to her" thing they had going on, but all in all the writing was pretty good and the story was enjoyable enough, it just wasn't anything special.
Tall, Tatted and Tempting was my first Tammy Falkner book and despite not blowing me away, I'll read the next in this series to finish Logan and Kit's story. Maybe a full length novel will succeed in hitting the feels where the novella could not?
