Tall, Tatted and Tempting
By: Tammy Falkner

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 Thoughts
    Wowzas! Tammy Falkner (also part of the writing team behind Lydia Dare) has come into the New Adult Genre with a bang in Tall, Tatted and Tempting. I adored every minute of the story, from the very beginning when you don’t even know if you like the characters to the somewhat upsetting finale!
     The story starts out as all romances should really, with Kit coming into Logan’s tattoo shop for a tattoo. Getting spooked, Kit runs out but not before leaving behind her very intricate tattoo that she wanted. Instantly infatuated and feeling a connection, playboy Logan seeks Kit out in the wilds of New York and eventually finds her, playing the guitar and living on the streets.
    What follows is one of the most magnificent pieces of NA I’ve read yet. As in real life, the characters have actual flaws. Logan is handsome as the day is long but is completely deaf. Kit, a mysterious girl who doesn’t want her history known, lives on the streets in squalor, saving money desperately for just a roof over her head at night or a warm supper. They both are insecure in themselves, love their families, and each have a fantastic artistic ability, whether that be through music or through actual artistry.
     I think something else that surprised me was the pacing of the story and the overall feel. I enjoyed how it seemed to speed up, or it could totally be just me wanting to read and find out what was going on. Regardless I couldn’t stop turning the pages, dying to find out what was going on. The tension was delightful between the two characters and the sexual chemistry? Very very yummy indeed.
    A quick note, the ending initially bothered me. I want things to end the way I want them to end, but trust me, on reflection it seems absolutely perfect...for both the series and the characters. See, now you have to read it just to see what I’m talking about!
     Love, love, love this one by the fabulous Tammy Falkner. There are four more Reed brothers to take care of, so I’m hoping and praying each one will get their own story. Funny, hot, and a new tone of romance that I adored, be sure to check out Tall, Tatted and Tempting from your local retailer.
