Tall, Tatted and Tempting by Tammy Falkner

Reed Brothers #1
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 is one of the most interesting stories I have read. I realize that I may say that a lot, but this time is really no different.

Logan Reed has been deaf since he was 13, he also hasn't said a word since a kid at school made fun of his voice. He lives with is four brothers, and works a tattoo shop with the eldest.
Kit has been hiding in the Big Apple, carrying her own secrets as well as her real name (Emily). She lives on the streets and if she's lucky she can get a bed at a shelter.  She meets Logan when she saves enough money to get a tattoo.

And from that moment on Logan is intrigued with her, after seeing her in the subway with her guitar, and with a little convincing she agrees, in a way, to stay at his apartment, where Logan keeps a respectful distance. One night turns into a month, and Emily is learning to sign so she can talk to Logan and is getting closer to his brothers. She is ready to admit at least to herself that she is falling for Logan. Things are starting to look good for her life, until a tragedy hits Logan's family and Emily is able to help as long as she's willing to give up Logan.

This was a very endearing story, and Logan and Emily are really wonderful characters. The obstacles they overcome just to be able to communicate to each other is what drives them closer to each other.

One thing that I think readers will appreciate is that the author provided a PG-13 version of this book at the end. So for those of you under the age of 18, or just don't like descriptive sexy-time scenes, you also can enjoy this lovely story.
