Tall, Tatted, Tempting

Blurb from

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 Review:


This book had the most anti-climactic, sudden ending I've ever seen. The buildup was enjoyable, but the ending was very underwhelming. So many annoying eye-roll moments, unrealistic plot points and magical solutions to unsolvable problems.

Kit annoyed the hell out of me, she was such a drama queen/martyr. Ok, you're homeless, you're scared of going home with this guy because you don't know what he expects in return. He hauls you over his shoulder, your response? Well I may as well just hang here like a sack of potatoes because he's deaf and wouldn't hear my protests. I can't argue with such faultless logic.

She mentioned that she's been away from home for "so long now" that she couldn't imagine going back? Imagine my surprise when her mother says it's been 6 months...that isn't a "long time" for a 19 year old to have run away for. I also don't get why she didn't just get a job at McDonalds or something and rent somewhere...why this absolute shutdown? Either I go to Juilliard or I'm homeless? There's no middle ground? Also she's a rich kid with her own trust fund etc. why not plan your escape more carefully? Withdraw enough money to keep you afloat, keep in with you in cash, that would still be untraceable to her father, but at least she'd be safe. If she's defiantly trying to prove to her family that she isn't stupid and that she's responsible enough to make her own decisions, this isn't exactly going to help her case. Endangering yourself when you have every opportunity to plan ahead and NOT put your safety at risk is stupid.

With the amount of worrying she does about people finding out about her true identity, I thought her dad was in the mafia or something. If her identity was such a secret, how did Paul know she was rich in the first chapter? "not one of us" and all that?

Also, Matt has cancer. Second round of chemo, he collapses, the doctor's say it's only a matter of time. But oh! Wait, there's this new magical treatment that can help an end-stage cancer patient and has a super high success rate! What mystical witchcraft is this? It's true, but it's expensive and will cost "hundreds of thousands of dollars". Such a hurried "perfect" solution, where nobody actually sacrifices/pays/learns anything screams of an impending deadline set by the publisher.

That being said, this is still a perfectly acceptable fluff book. You know the kind, mood boosting light reading material.
