REVIEW : Tacker by Sawyer Bennett

November 3, 2019

blurb

I am not okay.

Fifteen months ago, my life was turned upside down when the plane I was piloting went down. Injured and trapped in the wreckage, I had to watch my fiancée die a painfully slow death, which is something that can really mess with your head.

Since that day, I’ve had little desire to do much of anything. Except play hockey, that is. Because that is the one place where the bad memories are banished and I can escape my pain.

But off the ice, I’m spiraling out of control. Losing the grip on my life and putting myself and my career in danger. Now, thanks to a string of bad decisions, I’ve been ordered to complete therapy in order to stay on the team.

The problem? Nora Wayne, my beautiful and somewhat unconventional therapist. I can’t buy into the brand of happy clappy crap this woman is feeding me. What could she possibly understand about the type of loss that I’ve suffered? How does she know anything about finding happiness after losing the most important person in your life?

Turns out, I’ve got a lot to learn, and she’s just the person I need to break through those walls I’ve erected.

I am not okay.
But for the first time in a long time, I know that I will be.


She turned on a fucking light in my darkroom. She’s the one who flipped the switch.”


my review

Tacker’s story has been my most anticipated book of the Arizona Vengeance Series since his character was first introduced and it does not disappoint!

If you’ve read any of the previous books in the series you have gotten some bits and pieces of Tacker’s history and the events that led up to where we are now. If you haven’t read the others, no problem because this can be read as a standalone and the past events will be explained.

Tacker’s story is beautiful, emotional, and about overcoming guilt and loss. I knew this one would be rough, but it was so much more than I expected. Tacker’s story broke my heart and I felt for him. I was rooting for him to overcome his loss and pain from the start and to be able to open up to his teammates and to get back on the ice again. Nora was unexpected in the best way possible. I loved her. She was caring and giving and despite all the tragedies in her life she has managed to overcome them and to have a positive outlook on life.  

Tacker and Nora’s chemistry is beautiful. They connected on a different level, they opened up to each other about their pasts and the loss. They brought new light to each other’s lives and helped each other find themselves again.

Tacker is a an emotional MUST READ!
