Our girl, Autumn, has had a rough childhood. She has experienced loss, grief, extreme bullying that have led to serious wounds and even health problems. But, Autumn is a strong woman. She is a survivor. She has been dropped to the ground many times. But she has picked herself up. She has moved on and become stronger from that. The wounds are still there, of course, but her inner strength is also there.
Landon is a good man and a loyal friend. But his judgement is terrible. He thought he had everything, but in truth he had a virtual life with a virtual wife. He lost everything, but he gained everything back. He may have lost his dream, his career but he picked himself up. He chose to rise above and to do something with his life. What impressed me the most about Landon is that he never hides from his problems. He finds solutions, he move on. He doesn’t wallow in self pity or getting drunk or whatever else he could have done. He is a grounded man who survives through it all.
The story is sweet and beautiful.
It naturally has the typical dramatic twist and some unexpected turns.
But, it’s sweet and romantic!
And well, it also has many sexy, steamy scenes that you will absolutely love!
In general, the book is great and well written!
So, Tackled by Love gets 4 Gorgeous Stars!
In a quiet, husky tone, Landon says, “I don’t know what it is about you, but I can’t help myself. I want to devour every inch of your skin every second I’m with you, and I think about all the places I want to feel you when I’m not.” And if I didn’t need new panties before, I definitely do now. I’ve never had a guy turn me on like this with simple words. His eyes remain on the road, but each syllable has left a hot trail straight to my most intimate parts. Because my brain has completely fizzled out, I’m left speechless. “Did I scare you?” He glances over at me with a sexy grin on his face.
“No, just processing. I’ve never had a guy talk to me that way before.” I look out my window, nervous to meet his eyes.
“And how am I talking to you?” His tone is commanding, like he wants to hear exactly what he does to me.
“Like you’re going to eat me alive and do things I couldn’t possibly recover from.” My voice comes out breathy as my own desires become quite obvious.
“I wouldn’t mind eating something, but I promise you’ll survive it, sweetheart. Barely.” My eyes widen and my skin instantly heats up all over. He gives me a knowing look and responds with a wink. My mouth goes completely dry and I suddenly have a very vivid imagination that runs wild with all the things he could do to me.
