Really loved it ! 170 pages. Worth the money. Want to read more from this author.
Beautiful love story without being cheesy. Funny dialogue that really connected the two main characters. Bright, fast read, memorable.
I was surprised at the quality of this story, kind of thought it would be more racy from the cover. The beautiful, jagged relationship between Austen and Casey and the mysterious presence of the past was intriguing. I found myself laughing out loud at the dialogue, and tearing up at moments as well. The suspense of finding out the truth about Austen's past had me flying through the book. I loved the story of the tattoo and how after finishing the book the image on the cover took on new meaning. My biggest pet peeve in books is when there are loose ends, and I can honestly say there weren't any in "Tender Thorn." A solid, fast read, enjoyable. Will probably reread.
