I have been dying to read Tacker’s story since the beginning of the series. We get bits and pieces of his tragic accident he survived and his guilty, sad soul but never really figured what went down exactly. If you are a fan of the series and was waiting to read Tacker’s story since the beginning just like me, the only thing I can say to you is, you definitely won’t be disappointed with it. It feels like whatever I would say won’t be enough to convey my feelings
Tacker Hall plays hockey for Arizona Vengeance. The plane he was piloting crashed two weeks prior to his wedding and he watched the death of his fiancé. Even though, he survived the crashed, he never gets back to living because of the anger, sadness and guilt. Hockey is the only thing he finds comfort in. However, because of his lack of judgment and poor decisions, now his career is in danger. The ultimatum he gets from the team is either he gets professional help or he gets kicked out of the team. Even though, he seems he doesn’t really care about the team or hockey, deep down he is shattered about what he did. At the end he decides to get professional help, so that he doesn’t have to give up the only thing that connects him to life. When Tacker struggles to find a therapist that fits him, as always Dominik, owner of Arizona Vengeance, is there to support and help. Dominik recommends Nora Wayne, who uses not so traditional methods for therapy. Nora is beautiful, optimistic, a ray of sunshine and with time you see how strong she is. With each session Tacker trusts her more and starts confiding in her. She first becomes his friend and with time Nora becomes the light that will help Tacker’s beautiful, tortured soul to heal. Even though, I am dying to write more about Nora and Tacker’s relationship, I will stop myself because I don’t want to ruin the story for you guys. But for me Nora is one of the few heroines that inspired me. Let’s just say she is like a Phoenix, arising from its ashes.
Also, it was amazing to see how Tacker’s teammates and their significant others stepped up to help and support him. They are just like a big, loud family, who is always there to pick you up when you fall. It was great to see all the characters from the previous books and I am really curious about Aaron Wylde, new addition to Vengeance Family. We will get his book soon enough but first we get to read Dominik’s story, which is the next book of the series.
‘Tacker’ is a heartbreaking, sweet and inspiring. It’s an emotional read in the sense that you will literally feel all the emotions at one point or another.
