Saturday Series: Tall, Tatted and Tempting (The Reed Brothers #1) 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.

This series has been recommended to me by a lot of people, and I always like it when we have a series about a family or in this case brothers (even better). My first thought after finishing this book was "where is the rest." While I wouldn't say it ends with a cliffhanger, you certainly know there is going to be a second book, and you'll probably want to start reading it immediately. So I suggest buying them both at once.

Honestly, this is a pretty fast and short read, so I'm surprised the author even split the story in two. It could have easily been one book and I actually prefer it that way. Since now I have that feeling of unfinished business. While she did manage to create a good break/ending, it doesn't feel definite at all and therefor it felt a bit lacking.

Logan and Kit are two interesting characters. With Logan being deaf, communicating isn't always that easy, though he never had any trouble attracting the ladies. When he meets Kit, it doesn't immediately go that well, but there is this instant connection. She has some very clear trust issues, and Logan is new to the whole actually really liking a girl and wanting to get to know her. They both need a breather to figure things out, though this time I liked the fact that things move pretty fast. It's still not instant love, there is that definite hesitation from both sides, but you know it just works.

Kit has a big personal secret, and she's afraid of the consequences when that comes out. While it doesn't involve the Reed brothers, the reveal of that secret will mostly just have consequences for her. She's not immediately ready to share that with Logan, and it's one of the big reasons why they are taking their time. 

So I definitely liked the pace of the love story, it's just felt overall short. As soon as I finish writing this review, I'll be reading the second book. I do feel the need to mention, with the book being so short, there are some details missing and I have a lot of questions. Even if the author wanted to split the story up, I still believe this could have easily been up to a hundred pages longer. Mostly so we can get deeper into certain parts. Now while there are some serious issues, it still feels a bit superficial at times.

The Author
Tammy Falkner lives on a farm in a lovely, sprawling little town in rural NC with her beekeeper husband and a house full of boys, a few dogs, and a cat or two (or five – who has time to count?). As half of the Lydia Dare team, she has co-written ten books, including the Westfield Wolves series and the Gentlemen Vampyre series. A huge fan of Regency England, she often wonders what other kinds of magical, mythical and strange creatures might live and interact within the ton. Exploring the theory that the fae can walk between Regency England and their own land, Tammy spends as much time as possible with the lords and ladies of society, horse-drawn carriages, and elegant balls. Now add to that some faeries, a little murder, a bit of mayhem, and a troublesome garden gnome, and you have her exciting new series. She hopes you enjoys her world as much as she does.
