Every once in a while you read a book that whacks you up side the head and surprises you. Tall, Tatted and Tempting was that book for me. This book was definitely a more emotional and heartfelt read than I was expecting. It drew me in right from the beginning. This is a well-written story with endearing characters. This is also a book about two individuals who happen to meet and simply know that life will not be the same ever again.

I'll give this book a try, what I didn't expect was to fall so in love with two characters and this deliciously written novel. 'Tall, tatted and tempting' is so much more than its title suggests. It is full of heart and soul and is written to heart warmingly wonderful proportions. This story has completely captured

Tall, Tatted and Tempting is the perfect title for this book- it describes Logan just right!

No one really talks to me since I can’t hear. I haven’t said a word since I was thirteen years old.

Logan lives with his four brothers. He is a tattoo artist. He is a bit of a man slut. And he is also deaf.

Home is a relative term. Home is wherever I find to sleep that night.

Emily goes by Kit. She spends her days playing guitar by the subway of NYC. She is a long way from home. She co

Logan Reed is a deaf tattoo artist/bouncer who lives with his four brothers and falls hard for Kit a street guitarist on the run. Logan Reed was a wonderful character who is just the right amounts of sexy and sweet. Kit can’t resist Logan but he won’t go further with her until she tells him her real name and shares more about herself with him.

I just read the most epic love story!

I mean, there is love and then there's Kit and Logan love. But let me not get ahead of myself. Let's start at the beginning.

So on Monday we're introduced to Kit. She's broke and homeless but a fighter nonetheless, busking at the train station. I mean if that doesn't scream strong and independent, I don't know what does. And guess what? She has a secret!

Bet you did not see that coming!

And then things get good and she meets our tall, tatted, and tempting

Emily (Kit) is far away from home and running from her past. She lives on the streets and tries to take as much as she can from life.
Her past, her secrets doesn’t allow her to get close to anything or anyone but all that changes in the moment that she decides to make a tattoo.

Tall, Tatted and Tempting has been getting rave reviews because of one unique character- Logan. Logan's deaf and has been living in a silent world since he was 13. Emily (‘Kit’) is a homeless girl with a secret past that she's hiding from.

Emily arrives at a tattoo parlor requesting a tattoo of one her designs. Logan is the tattoo artist for this project. The sparks fly between them especially when Emily ends up punching him in the nose and breaking it.

4 Pleasantly Surprised Stars!

Told from alternating points of view, Logan and Emily's, this book had an interesting plot. Logan and Emily are each dealing with their own personal struggles, and although a little over the top at times, as far as the storyline goes, it’s not too angsty or overly dramatic.

Emily and Logan form a connection early on and the chemistry between them is quite believable, but what I really loved is the relationship she forms with all his brothers and that the brothers

I’m so glad I finally read Tall, Tatted and Tempting! It was everything I needed right now and I did knock my socks off. From painfully heartbreaking to amusing and passionate it blew me away. Why didn’t I read it right after it was released? I still can’t believe I waited so long to do so. I admire Tammy Falkner work and from this point I will be impatiently waiting for her books. I am seriously going to become her fan and stalker number 1.

That's how I would describe this story. It gave me those tingly, warm feelings all over and I absolutely loved every second of it. It reminded me of how Callum & Harper made me feel or The Fledgling where you just knew that these two people were made for one another. And best of all it managed to do this in a very well developed story that was interesting and complex and not one bit of corny!!!

Seriously LOVED it! I held off on reading it because I was once again afraid of the dreaded cliffhanger ending. But it wasn't that bad...and it most definitely helped that the author posted chapter one of the next book on her website (see link at the bottom of the review)!

I didn't know it was going to be all sweet and sad and stuff. It was a bit sexy too but with a name like Tall, Tatted and Tempting I thought it was going to be all kinds of smutty. T

YouTube Book Trailer:

The title and cover of this book does not do it justice. It's not a fluffy chick lit read as the cover and title might suggest. Nor is it the usual run of the mill NA/YA plot.
*Can be read as a Stand Alone or part of sequels.



This book is extremely engrossing. You're drawn to all the characters and you're really rooting for the Reed family (5 brothers) to make it.

I randomly plucked this book from my kindle, and it took me completely by surprise! Entertaining and meaningful right from the start, I was instantly addicted and I absolutely loved it!

Logan is a sexy, pierced and heavily tatted tattoo artist. He is also deaf, but lost his hearing at the age of 13 so he knows how to speak, he just chooses not to and hasn’t spoken a word for eight years. He meets Kit when she comes to him for a tattoo, and the cocky manwhore is immedi

I'd have to agree with a lot of other reviewers when I say that even though I knew about the deaf hero, I got way more than I expected from this book. He wasn't just a deaf guy. He really is a hero. An every day kind of hero. He saves the girl. And he's deaf.

But the ending...srsly? SRSLY?!?! See how I shortened that word? People do that all the time, right? So do authors lately. This book was half a story. A very good half a story. I will absolutely be reading the next one, but I can't give a f

This was a sweet, inspiring and heartfelt story. It was about overcoming obstacles and disproving stereotypes. Kit and Logan forged their own way, falling in love in the process.

Kit would rather live on the streets than to return home to the fate that awaits her. When her path crosses with Logan, he quickly realizes that she isn't like the hordes of other girls that fill his nights with meaningless sexual encounters. He is determined to get to know this mysterious runaway.

Kit aka Emily is living on the streets of New York after running away from home. She comes in to get a tattoo and sees Logan who is staring at her boobs. She flips out and punches him and runs out. Logan is deaf so he could't really explain himself. He sees something in her and wishes he knew her name or something about her.

I love the plot of this book. A guy covered in tattoo but what makes him different from all this overflowing bad boy image hero is his deaf.

I did not expect that. In fact, I think I just got schooled.

This was such a pleasant surprise.

I normally judge a book by its cover (I mean, the cover is pretty meh in my opinion, so I was kind of on the fence with this one), but hell, it was such a cute read. The heroine, Kit, was SMART, which was such a nice change in the NA genre. As expected from NA, there was some serious angst going on, but surprisingly, I didn't find it tiring or annoying. And then...

Logan is a tattoo artist who works with his brothers at the shop they own and he is also deaf. He’s pretty much a manwhore, never sleeping with the same girl twice and never forming any kind of friendship/attachment. He meets Kit when she comes in to get a tattoo and tries to treat her like any other girl, getting pretty handsy with her aft

Great things -

1st person POV - Both sides. Likable characters - all the way around.

Realistic angst - not the 'rape' or murdered/suicide background that we see so often.

The characters didn't go into 'heat' every time they saw each other - Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Let me point out that the ebook contains 2 versions - Sexy and Sweet. I read the sexy version, which had just the right level of sexual activity (for me). Le

I read about the love some readers had for Tall, Tatted, and Tempting in a readers group online and it sounded like a story I’d enjoy. Expectations for the story were nil as I didn’t know what to expect from the title or the cover. Even the blurb didn’t do it justice as the story ended up taking me completely by surprise. There was so much to the story making it different and enjoyable. Pleasantly surprised, indeed.
