Reece Hatfield has just one rule when it comes to falling in love: don't fucking do it. There's no room in his life for another person. He can barely keep a handle on things as it is. A shadow of the man he used to be, Reece spends his days tattooing, the artist inside of him longing for the chance to do something different.
Avery Moore is all dance, all the time. Ballet is all she's ever known, and she's damn good at it. Her body is her art, a living canvas that captivates Reece the first time he lays his eyes on her.
He yearns to leave his mark on her body... in more ways than one.
The tattooed degenerate with a shady past. The beautiful ballerina with a bright future. They live in different worlds, yet somehow, they fit. But just because they fit doesn't mean they belong together. Cracks sometimes form. Two pieces don't always make a whole. The course of love never did run smoothly. Things get messy.
And Reece doesn't do messy.
I am a HUGE fan of J.M. Darhower's books. I can not get enough of her. So when I saw this pretty one release, I squealed when I saw that Charlie Keller was gracing the cover of The Mad Tatter.
The Mad Tatter is a story of don't judge a book by it's cover. Everyone has a story. Everyone has a past, however that past shouldn't define us. Our past makes us who we are today. Everyone make mistakes, we just can't let our mistakes from the past, dictate our future.
So when Reece Hatfield meets a badass, tippy-toed, dancing warrior, that steals his heart, he is knocked on his ass. Never would he have imagined himself with someone like Avery Moore. They appear to be total opposites, but sometimes, we need the opposite of who we are to balance ourselves out. That is exactly what Avery did.
Avery stumbled into Reece's life by chance. She never expected anything to come about it, neither did Reece. Reece doesn't have time for a girlfriend. Been there done that. His life revolves around two things. One that brings him his sanity and the other unconditionally.
Reece and Avery can't get enough of each other. There is something about this fierce ballerina that draws him to her. Slowly their connection builds, but can opposites truly attract? Will Avery be able to see past Reece's past? She see accept him for who he is? Can Reece open his heart to Avery? Will be give love a chance or will he hold his past against her?
This love story was very well written. I found it very realistic and could totally relate to the characters. The way the two interacted felt real, not to mention how he was with someone else in the story. That relationship warmed by heart. I loved him for how he was. You'll have to read the story to know what I am talking about.
You should definitely one click The Mad Tatter. It is a story that will leave you wanting more from the characters at the end. Will they have a future together? What their future holds?
