My Swoon for this week comes from:

Tall, Tatted and Tempting
(The Reed Brothers #1)

Tammy Falkner

First - The Blurb:

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

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.

Second - The Swoon(s):

Swoon 1

"Thank you," she says. She stands up on tiptoe and kisses my cheek almost like it's an afterthought.

That kiss touches me like the deepest tongue kiss never has. It's like my breath is trapped in my throat and I can't draw it in or out."

Swoon 2 

She pulls my head toward hers, and she kisses the corner of my mouth. Then she kisses the other corner. I can't take much more. I chase her lips with every move she makes. She's smiling when she finally presses her lips to mine. I can feel it against my mouth. I keep my eyes open because I need to see her face. I'm holding her in my hands, and I slide my fingers into her hair at her temples.

Logan initially appears as a bad-boy but it doesn't take long to discover that beneath the cool exterior hides a sweet and sensitive guy. Deaf since the age of thirteen, he hasn't spoken a word for the past eight years, largely, because he hasn't felt the need to. Then he meets Kit (Emily), and the words begin to flow.

“I've been locked in my own world for a really long time," he says. I have an excuse to keep people away, because of my disability. And then I saw your tattoo..." I turn his wrist over and trace my finger across it. He shudders at my touch, closing his eyes tightly. "And I felt like maybe, just maybe, we were locked in our own little worlds and could let each other out.” 

Kit, full of secrets and hiding from a past that wants to control her, is initially reluctant to let Logan get too close. However, he's not one to give up easily. Sensing that she is different from anyone else he has ever met before, he pursues her, and slowly, manages to win her over.

Their story touched my heart. It is deeply emotional and definitely worth reading.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
