Review and Giveaway: Sexy, Smart and Secretive by Tammy Falkner


I'm back in New York, ready to start my brand new life with Logan. Things are still up in the air between us, and it has been three months since I've even talked to him. But there's one thing I'm certain of -- I can't live without him.


I need her like I need air. But now she's back, and her dad and her ex-boyfriend are conspiring to keep us apart. We can do this, though. Can't we? We can make this work? We have to, because I can't imagine my life without her.

4 Star Review by Lisa Kane

This book continues right where Tall, Tatted and Tempting ended. Emily has been spending the last 3 months with her parents, having returned to them in exchange for treatment of Logan’s brother Matt’s experimental treatment. But now she is going to Julliard in New York and following her artistic dream and returning to Logan. Although they haven’t talked at all, both still share that rare connection and feel incomplete without the other.

Emily returns to Logan and the two are determined to make things work. Emily has learned how to sign so she is better able to communicate with Logan. Logan is starting classes himself and has his future planned out. He feels Emily is too good for him and he will probably never be able to provide a life such as the one her family’s wealth provided. But he knows they love each other and they can make a life together.

“Logan I left you. And I’ll understand if you’ve moved on. I just want to be sure that you want me now, from this moment forward. Whatever you did or whoever you saw when I was gone is none of my business.”

Meanwhile, Logan’s brother Matt is doing well with his experimental treatment. Unfortunately, Emily’s father treats Logan like gum on the bottom of his shoe.

“You’ll run your little tattoo shop and you’ll have a shitty apartment and you’ll buy your wife a tiny diamond. And you’ll be happy with that. But I’ll never be happy with that for my daughter.”

He’s gone so far as to move her former fiancĂ© Trip (the same one who she left at the alter because he called her stupid in public over her dyslexia) in with her.

“Do I get a pass for being dyslexic?” I ask. “I put up with your dyslexia for a long time, Em,” he says. “You put up with my dyslexia?”

He and Logan have more than a few testosterone pissing matches. Emily’s mother likes Logan and feels he has brought positive changes to her life. She secretly outmaneuvers her husband to counteract his every sabotage move.

“Just remember Bro, I popped her fuc#ing cherry.”

Logan’s brothers, Pete and Sam are getting mixed up with Bones, a pretty unsavory character from the first book. Pete ends up in some serious trouble. Emily is most content when she is with Logan’s family; they love her and treat her as one of their own. When Emily is to perform a piece at her school it is a turning point for her and her father. Their happiness is cut short when the unthinkable happens. Will Logan and Emily be able to turn fate around and follow their dream of a life together?

“Do you think he’s ever going to wake up?”

I loved this book; I am a true fan of this series. The Reed brothers are warm and real without being sappy. There is plenty of material to fill several books and I can’t wait to read all of them.

“He’s the peace in my soul. He’s the one who opened my shackles, and I’ll love him forever.”
