Book Review: Carry Me Home

The Mad Tatter
by J.M. Darhower

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.

Not anymore.

TeriLyn's thoughts: The Mad Tatter serves as first J.M. Darhower book and it will not be my last. I had no idea what to expect from the writing or the story I honestly just fell for the cover and the sale price and I'm so glad I did.

This story, told completely from the hero's point of view, gives the reader a look into a tortured artist who's past mistakes haunt him every day. Reece Hatfield, tattoo artist, lives a lonely life. One bright spot of his world is his daughter, who was an awesome part of this story. She showed Reece's vulnerability better than any heroine could have done because the little girl was the first girl to steal his heart.

Avery, our heroine, is a ballet dancer working to prove to her parents she's the best while trying to maintain a sense of self in her dancing for her future. She's intrigued by the brooding artist and her fierceness allows her to start a friendship with him.

Reece and Avery become flirty friends turned lovers. Their chemistry is palpable during scenes of passion and just talking alike. They have a connection that's easy to feel for the reader. And as the story the progresses there's a culminating point in which you realize they were destined to be together even given their circumstances and differences.

J.M. Darhower wrote an intriguing, fast paced, easy-to-read stand alone in The Mad Tatter and I'm quite glad I read it.
