Hawk Tanner is not a man of many words—especially if you’re a silly girl getting a silly tattoo in his shop. The owner of Bird’s Eye Tattoo Studio doesn’t want you to tip him with your phone number or flirty glances. He’s tired of all the wrong women wanting him for all the wrong reasons.

Drew Ashby has no time—for anything. As a recently-divorced single mother, her focus i

Someone just give me a book that will at least keep me entertained enough to finish😭 I really tried this one, but man, this was just so boring 😩 MCs have no chemistry, heroine is kind of a dimwit too and a bit too much of a beggar for me. The hero could be funny at times, but I liked his relationship more with his dogs than the heroine😬 I hated the development of their relationship too. They hardly speak to each other, then they go out once and sleep together on the first date, in whi

Kat Savage is a new to me author, but as soon as i saw that amazing cover and read the blurb i knew i had to read Hawk !
Because truth to be told i have a soft spot for tattoo artists 😌
But i didn't expect to fall so hard for this story 😍😍😍😍

There are all the elements that make great a romance: a single and strong mom with a shit ex husband, a sweet little girl, a "cold" tatto artist sexy AF, a wise best friend, and a family made by "mistfits" who protect each others.... and this very last thin
When this book popped up on my Tiktok, I hesitated. I watched the author’s video multiple times as I debated with myself. Yes, the cover is awesome and caught my eye. And I went to look it up and see what it was about. It sounded amazing. It sounded like the exact type of book that I’ve been craving and devouring for a while now. And that’s where the debate came in. Should I request to be a reviewer? Would I have words? Do I dare take the chance?! So, I put my name down for a chance, and I got t ...more

Drew is newly divorced and in need of a job. She relocated after her ex decided he didn't love her anymore and didn't want to have anything to do with their child. She finds an opening at a tattoo shop close to her apartment and immediately falls in love with the people there. The owner is a little prickly, but that's not her problem.
As soon as Hawk sees Drew he knows he is done for. She has the eyes he's been dreaming about. He is prickly on the outside but such a softie on the inside. He immed

I'm kinda in the middle here on my rating. I liked the book, but it felt like we didn't dig deep enough into the characters and the romance. I liked both H/h but a lot of the story felt rushed and thrown together. Not even the sexy times could get much interest from me. There was too much time spent with ex-drama for both H/h. Neither of them liked their exes, but they kept showing up and taking up page time. Why?

I like the idea of the book but not so much the execution. Would I recommend? If y

Well that was unexpected…unexpectedly sweet.
I am a sucker for the whole tattoo artist hero vibe….you know the type that’s broody, doesn’t talk much, insanely artistic, obviously sexy.. someone who has perfected “The smouldering eyes”.. You know what I’m talking about. Hawk is it. What is surprising is how sweet and thoughtful Hawk is…particularly with Ava, Drew’s daughter. Ava is another standout character.

The book, Hawk, made me swoon *Blissful sigh*
A definite page turner for SURE! Grab Hawk
2.5 rounded up.
I liked it but I did skim a fair bit through the middle when it gets a little slow and Drew lets her insecurities ride her.
Drew gets divorced by her lawyer husband without money or half the house or anything. AND the douche canoe actually doesn't want visitation rights with their daughter!
This was of course ridiculous and harder to believe than some of the PNR stuff I read. *roll my eyes*
Plus. where were her friends? Was there truly nobody in her life that she liked other than

Hello new book boyfriend.
If you read this for nothing else, read it for the acknowledgments at the back. They are always frank and hilarious.
Okay, Hawk - the book is great. Quick chapters, humour sprinkled with bits of seriousness and romance. A kid who isn’t annoying or overly smart for her age and has her own interests and personality.
Hawk - the character is delicious. He’s tatted, he can cook and he’s like a Ferrero Rocher. Solid and a little nutty on the outside, smooth and sweet on the insi

I'm so happy that i took a chance on this book!!!
From the moment that I laid my eyes on this cover, I knew that I wanted it!!!
The blurb just sealed the deal and here we are...
The only sure thing is that Kat Savage has a way with the words... The story was floating so effortelessly and even though, you could characterize this story as a simple one, it was touching you in a deeper level!!!

I didn’t know I needed a book about a broody artist and owner of a tattoo shop in my life—but now that I have it, I need more.

Hawk is everything I expected it to be. And Hawk—well, how many ways can I say that he’s perfect? He is quiet but rock solid. He’s someone you want in your corner when things go wrong, and your biggest champion when things go right. How he loves Drew and treats little Ava just melted my heart. But I think my favourite part of the whole book is the relationship between mo

5 Star Review of Hawk (Men of Bird’s Nest #1) by Kat Savage

Kat Savage is a new author to me and why I have not come across her books before, I have no idea. This is Hawk Tanner and Drew Ashby’s story and what a great read this was. Hawk is the owner of Bird’s Eye Tattoo Studio and Drew is hired to work there. She is a single mum with little time for herself, focused on getting her life back on an even keel.

The attraction between them builds until Hawk makes the first move and although Drew is a

I would like to introduce the world to my new book boyfriend, Hawk. Dibs infinity no take backs. That is it.

First of all, I really adore names that could be a boy or a girl for girls because I think they are cute and spunky... maybe I should legally change my name... I will save that thought for later.

Kat Savage has found her place in the novel writing world and I am here for it. Her ability to write a rom com that makes the reader never want to put down the story is just one of her amazing qu

Kat Savage is a new author for me and I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hawk and Drew’s story. Single mom troupes are one of my favorites and I was not disappointed. Hawk was very stand-offish at first, but then he transformed with each new page. Drew was the ultimate mom...she’d do anything for her little girl. This story is not without its drama though and at one point I wanted to toss my kindle. Ms Savage is a talented writer and I will definitely be picking up more of her books! 4.5⭐️

This is a no angst romance where everyone is likeable and things move quick. I have no idea why this is marketed as a romantic comedy though. There wasn't anything particularly funny in this book. It was sweet, the sex was not super graphic and the side characters had some personality but didn't steal the show.

In the end, it was a basic, predictable, nice story.

Drew's new job is going well. The whole crew at the tattoo shop are quickly becoming family to her and her adorable daughter. All with the exception of her boss, Hawk. He's quiet and broody and seems not to like her much. Except he might just be hiding a heart of gold that he slowly starts revealing to her in wonderful ways, ways that have her heart jumping for joy as he bonds with her daughter. Could she and Ava have finally found their place?

This was my first book by Kat Savage. It was an opposites-attract book. I haven't read a lot of these, so this was refreshing to read. Hawk was the type of guy people would look at and think he was a bad boy. But deep down he was really thoughtful and caring. He was really stand-offish at first. At one point, he complains about how they agreed to no females, other than Will, working at the tattoo shop. Why is this? We never really get the answer to this. Throughout the book, it's hard to not fal ...more

Have you ever had one of those epic book funks that lasts for what feels like forever and nothing breaks it and you think your book mojo is dead? I was in the midst of that when I picked up Hawk and BOOM! Book funk decimated. Hawk strutted in and was all "Book funk? Hold my tattoo gun, Imma hit you with a book hangover!" and I was all "Yes, Daddy!"
Seriously. Hawk is that level of amazeballs.
This man is all the things. He's so many things I'd have to whip out a scroll to list them all. He's sexy.

Hawk has his share of problems. He wants his other dog back, to lose the ex with "fake" screaming off her and to find a connection with a woman who doesn't snap her gum and twist her hair.

First read by this author and absolutely fell in love with Hawk and Drew and oh my little miss Ava and everyone from the shop! There is nothing like a sexy swoony tatted up man who knows what he wants and sets out to get it! Can’t wait to continue with this series:)

Super cute "bad boy" meets single mom romance that was adorable. All the cute kid and boyfriend moments, protector vibes and the initial butting heads of the two because of their differences made for a gradual attraction that worked well for the story. I did love the relationship between Hawk and the daughter. Normally I am pretty weary of single parent romances because they tend to use the kids as plot devices and that's usually a no go for me but that wasn't the case here. All in a

After adoring Kat Savage’s A Chance at Love series, I was eager to see what the author’s Men of Bird’s Eye would offer. As I’d hoped, Hawk was another story I could not put down.

I fell for this one from the very first page, hooked on all that was playing out. I could not get enough of the characters and the story, sucked in deeper with every new detail that was added. Things were a little bit too fast toward the end, but it was not enough to ruin my enjoyment of this one. The characters were gre

Kat Savage has become one of my must read authors very fast. Hawk, first book in Men of Bird's Eye series carries the intense emotional effects of her words. It was an extremely inspiring and heartaching love story with some most amazing characters. And I cannot get enough of her brilliant writing.
