Description

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.

    I’ve been waiting for Tacker’s story and what a great yet heartbreaking storyline. Two souls with broken pasts, find love again. Tacker and Nora’s chemistry is a slow burn but once ignited it burns hot. Stephen Dexter and Lucy Rivers’s narration is excellent and brought an added element to this story. It’s a definite must listen.
  • Another awesome story by Sawyer

    I have been eagerly waiting for this story since Tacker first showed up in Bishop’s book. Sometimes when a book is this anticipated it can almost not meet your expectations but Sawyer knocked it out of the park. I loved every minute of this book! I was scared that I was going to be super emotional through out the book but there were only a few parts that really got to me. I would recommend this book to everyone but even though it is a standalone, I would start at the beginning since you learn so much about Tacker’s journey along the way.
  • Incredible!!!!

    I love Tackers story. I was waiting to see what his story was and if he would be able to be happy again. I love this series and seeing all the different players and their family interacting. I love the team dynamic and how they all get along. Sawyer Bennett did not disappoint in this story. One of my favorite scenes where Tacker meeting with MJ’s parents. I cannot wait for Dominicks story

    Tacker’s fiancée died in the plane that he piloted. He started down the road of self destruction until he was given an ultimatum to clean up his act. That’s when he met Nora, his therapist. Tacker and Nora both learned from each other on healing. The story was the most emotional of this series. Since Tacker’s situation was first mentioned early on in this series, I couldn’t wait for his story, it was well worth the wait. Excellent story. Review copy was received for a honest opinion.
  • FINALLY GETTING TACKER’S STORY AND WE AREN’T READY!

    FINALLY GETTING TACKER’S STORY AND WE AREN’T READY! After getting bits and pieces of the surface story for Tacker in the previous books in this series, I was so crazy happy to finally get his story but was not ready for the range of emotions it brought! After his life is turned upside down and he gives up the willingness to live after the death of his fiancé, Tacker is finally given an ultimatum from the team’s owner and decides to take it since hockey is all he has left. Through that ultimatum, he meets Nora, a therapist that focuses on unique therapy approaches versus a standard one. As Tacker starts to tackle the feelings and the accident with Nora, he starts to actually have a break through, but at the same time starts to have a connection with Nora. But Tacker’s guilt of moving on holds him back and threatens the progress he’s made. These two are perfect for each other, with both of them going through very traumatic experiences and also living with survivor’s guilt. While Nora was way ahead on the progress and handling of her grief, I loved how she was able to understand exactly what Tacker needed to help with his. Per usual, I love Sawyer’s books and can’t get enough of them and the storylines that she provides. I can’t wait for the next book in this series! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    After purposely getting drunk and driving himself into a concrete barrier, Tacker is given an ultimatum. He has to attend counseling, pay a fine, and not drink alcohol or he’s off the team. Not sure he can ever make himself whole again, Tacker waivers on whether to accept the offer. In the end, it’s his teammates and his love of hockey that push him into a decision that will forever change his life. Nora has suffered greatly as a child, teen. But she was adopted by a loving woman who loved her enough to help her overcome the evil she experienced. Nora’s outlook on life was nothing short of remarkable. She lived to help others, while being an exceptional listener. When a broken Tacker shows up at her ranch, she KNOWS she can help him, but only if he’ll let her. Shared experiences finally allow Tacker to “see” things differently. Now it’s up to him to mend broken fences so he can live a happy life. Powerful. Cathartic. Emotional. Moving. Loving. Real. There aren’t enough words to express how Awesomely wonderful this novel is! A truly remarkable story. Sawyer Bennett could not have written Tacker and Nora’s story any more perfectly....except to indulge us with MORE Tacker and Nora! Tacker’s self destructive behavior made me want to reach into my ebook and shake him! He was so broken and devastated that he pushed away the people who meant the most to him. Nora’s ability to SEE Tacker and get him to open up about his feelings, was awe-inspiring. I loved how Nora wasn’t jealous of MJ and her memories. I laughed, cried, and cried some more. I highly recommend this novel! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

    It’s finally time. It’s time for Tacker’a book! Have your tissues at the ready. It’s definitely emotional, but a perfect level of emotion. Tacker is lost, heartbroken and dealing with the trauma of the plane crash he was in. He needs help to heal and his hockey team knows it. They give him an ultimatum: go to therapy or there is no more hockey. And since that’s the only thing he cares about these days he goes. When the first therapist is a disaster some strings are pulled and he starts going to a therapist who is more his speed. And beautiful to boot. Nora loves her ranch, she loves her horses, and she loves being a therapist. The ranch she worked so hard to it, is the same one that saved her when she was young and witnessed atrocities no child should experience. When Tacker walks into her world, she feels a connection to him. This is going to be interesting as his therapist. Can two broken souls find happiness with each other? Sit back and enjoy Tacker because he does find his HEA in the end and it’s beautiful to watch bloom.
  • Amazing!

    5 Stars Book: Tacker Author: Sawyer Bennett Series: Arizona Vengeance #5 Omgggggg!!! Tacker was EVERYTHING I’d thought it would be but it also was so much more!!! My heart was put through the wringer with this story. You know how sometimes you build something up so much in your mind that when you get it, you're a little disappointed? I was hoping and praying that this story would not be like that and I am SO HAPPY to say that Ms. Bennett brought her a-game! I won’t give any details about the plot but I will say that while yes we knew what had happened to Tacker, we didn’t know everything. Let me just say this now-you will be crying when you learn the rest. Tacker has so many layers and watching them all unfold was amazing. And Nora...her background was just as rough. Together their journey was so beautiful and heart wrenching all at the same time. I was rooting for them-hoping and praying that they would get their HEA. Ms. Bennett did a fantastic job with this book. It is definitely one story you do not want to miss!
