He’s used to risking it all, but nothing prepared him for love… Tanner by Sarah Mayberry #BookReview #Romance @MayberrySarah



He’s used to risking it all in the ring, but nothing prepared him for love…

After flying half-way around the world to surprise her boyfriend, Evie Forrester finds herself heartbroken and stranded in a strange city. What could be a total disaster becomes something else when a tall, dark bull rider turns out to be a white knight in disguise. Evie isn’t sure she needs saving, but Tanner Harding is a difficult man to deny. He’s even harder to resist…

Tanner Harding can tame a monster bull with ease, but he never expected to be floored by someone like Evie. Sparks fly between them until injury threatens to end Tanner’s career –and suddenly he’s the one in need of a rescue.

Evie can’t turn her back on her wounded hero and, as Tanner struggles with his recovery, she’s not sure she can guard her heart against him either. Tanner knows Evie has slipped under his skin, but she lives in Australia and his future is under a cloud. Can two people with too many reasons to walk away make the bold decision to stay?

Sarah Mayberry lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her partner of nearly twenty years (who has recently become her husband!). When she’s not in her pajamas eating peanut butter sandwiches and typing away madly on her latest story, she enjoys reading, cooking, sleeping, pilates, going to the movies and shopping. Not necessarily in that order!

Some of Sarah’s favorite authors are Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Rachel Gibson, Karina Bliss, Mary Balogh, Julie James, Sherry Thomas, Meredith Duran, and Loretta Chase. Her favorite movie is When Harry Met Sally, although she is also very fond of His Girl Friday and Something About Mary.

My review

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned many times before, I would read anything Sarah Mayberry writes (including the phonebook!) She has an innate way of bringing her characters to life and giving them real-life issues to overcome that leaves me either in need of a box of tissues, or a fan!

I loved the tough-as-nails Tanner with a heart of gold. When he finds down-on-her luck Evie holed up in a flee-bitten hotel after getting dumped by the love of her life, he makes it his mission to ensure she is safe until her flight back to Australia.

Evie gets the shock of a lifetime when she flies halfway around the world to surprise her boyfriend, only to find him in the arms of another woman. Broke and heartbroken, she wanders around a strange city until she finds a room at a dubious hotel.

She gets interrupted from a well-deserved crying jag by the cowboy who witnessed her humiliation. But can she trust the handsome cowboy long enough to arrange her trip home?

Sweet, funny, heart-wrenching, sexy, all are adjectives to describe this book.

I give Tanner 5 lovely kisses!
