REVIEW: Tanner by Jeannine Colette & Lauren Runow

Title: Tanner

Author: Lauren Runow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: February 7th, 2019

We’re two strangers on a train, knowing whatever we decide in the next moment might dictate our fate for the rest of our lives. “A kiss was all I needed.” “Looks like you got what you wished for.” “Yes. About that…” My plan: find a finely dressed businessman, have a one-night stand, and forget about my failed relationship. Like a bad joke, my ex walks into the bar. That’s when a gorgeous man wearing street clothes, messy hair, and the sexiest smile I’ve ever seen lays a kiss on me. It’s meant to rile up my ex but leaves me breathless and wanting more instead. Then he’s gone. So, I do what any rational person would. I chase after him onto the subway and embark on a wild night in New York City with a complete stranger. No matter how much I fight it, this mysterious man painted his soul onto my skin. If it’s not meant to be, why can’t I forget about him?

Each of the Sexton brothers is different. And the baby of the trio is definitely one of a kind. The way that he is with Harper is done so right that you find yourself engrossed in their story. I'm sorry to see the series come to an end, but I am so glad that I found these character. This is definitely a series that I would recommend.


OMG I am so deeply and hopelessly in love with Tanner Sexton! ♥ Tanner is the youngest of the Sexton brothers and approaching the end of his college years. He has made a nice life for himself in New York. He has his art, his friends and his freedom, but he will soon have to leave it all behind. He is due to return to California to take his rightful place at his family's media empire. At least that was the plan until he met a beautiful woman & muse. Harper is a 30 year old fifth grade teacher who's just gone through a painful breakup. Living on her best friend's couch, she spends her free time watching reruns of Friends. Tired of seeing her friend sulk around, April drags her out for a night on the town. There in a room full of suits, she meets a beautiful man wearing jeans and a man bun. He saves her from her ex who walks in by kissing her deeply and passionately before leaving the bar. Never having been kissed quite like that before, she decides to take a chance and run after him. Tanner & Harper's journey was absolutely beautiful, but not without issues that had to be overcome. It was just as much heartbreaking as it was heartwarming. The story was wonderfully written and had everything that I was looking for. A sexy and passionate hero, a lovable heroine, sizzling hot chemistry and a swoon-worthy romance. I smiled. I laughed and at times I cried. Tanner is a wonderful read that I'm sure you won't want to miss.
