## Holy freaking cow, this book was STELLAR. The story was so captivating, I couldn't put it down. I've stayed up way too late to finish it and I'm not the least bit sorry that my alarm will be blaring at me in a few short hours. When I purchased this book I didn't really know what to expect with the hero being deaf, but it was handled perfectly. The hero was fabulous (although I wish authors wouldn't feel compelled to write every hero as a man-slut). I absolutely adored the heroine. Together these two had this amazingly intimate connection. And kudos to Tammy for writing a sexy-lite version as well that my nineteen year old can read. With 4 brothers and a lot of unanswered questions where they are concerned, I'm hoping for more books!! Well done Ms. Falkner.

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.

Tall, Tatted, and Tempting has some really great aspects to the story. Logan, our hero is deaf. At first I was a little worried about this because it didn't really 'do it' for me another book I read with a deaf hero, but I really like how it was done in this book. I didn't have any problems connecting with Logan. I liked that he had a great strong protective streak to his nature and used it on Kit/Emily often.
I liked Emily/Kit, she was okay. I can understand why she held back and had reservations about a relationship with Logan even though he was awesome. It wasn't just for made up drama reasons she had reason to be worried. While there is definitely tension in their relationship caused by the lack of knowledge it doesn't ever really hit an over the top level.
Our heroine, Emily cannot read, it wasn't a major plot point of the story, but just seemed like a little bit of overkill, if you know what I mean. Eventually, it isn't really even a problem and the two learn to communicate with one another quickly. I think this is where my problems with this book started. I expected the communication thing, her not reading, him not hearing to be a big issue to their story. It isn't, they solve the problem rather quickly and I was fine with that, but it was how they did it. I don't really think this is a spoiler, but I know we all have different definitions of the term so I'm going to hide it. If you plan to read this story, skip the spoiler. It's not earth shattering, more of another Megan mini rant.
Tall, Tatted, and Tempting was a cute love story. It never reached 'Oh my God good" levels, but I was enjoying myself while reading. And the ending totally broke my heart. The story line was kind of level and mellow for most of the book, but things definitely pick up in the end. It was so sad and heart warming at the same time. But it was also just a little bit too perfect.
The story doesn't end on a cliffhanger per say, but there is more story to tell and more books in the series about this couple and other brothers as well.
So, while Tall, Tatted, and Tempting was good and I'd recommend it for some nightly reading if you've had it on your list, it did not reach epic levels for me. But you also have to remember, I'm a hard rater and it takes a lot for a book to reach five star status for me. I'd definitely recommend it for a read if you like the story description.

WOW!! I am not exactly sure what I expected when I picked up this free read but what I got was an amazing love story that will stick with me for a very long time. It is a beautifully written story of finding one's self worth, acceptance, love, and a willingness to sacrifice everything for that love. The Reed brothers are an amazing group of characters and the authors portrayal of them makes you feel as if you have known them all their lives. This is the first book I have read from this author but I will definitely be consuming her backlist in no time. I highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful?

This was such a great find! The story line was interesting, and kept me guessing. I was really intrigued by the characters, especially the Reed brothers as they were introduced Kit. This is a series I will definitely keep up with.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I love the fact that the main characters of the story had their own problems. Logan is death and Emily has dyslexia. Yet, they still manage to fall in love. I hope Tammy does a whole series about this family. So Tammy please hurry with the other books. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK COMING OUT SOMETIME IN AUGUST.Was this review helpful?

Absolutely loved this book! I am all for steamy romances, but this one was so sweet and REAL! I could totally see this happening in real life. I wish though that I didn't have to wait for the next installment! I have re-read this story many times and am still totally "awwwing" each time.Was this review helpful?

This book was so refreshing! I get so frustrated with the "run of mill" new adult genre, but this story was well written and entertaining. It reminded me of a modern retelling of SnowWhite. I don' t usually say this, but I'm actually hoping for a sequel:)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
