Well I have been reading a lot of books since I joined up to be a reviewer for the website Manic Readers and this is one of my many reviews for them. Today I’m going to be posting my review of Tally’s Girst by Elle Amery, which is the third book of her Quartzton series. I also posted the reviews for the first, Saving Sophie, and second book, Grace on Fire, in the series for Manic Readers as well here on the blog. Elle Amery contacted me when she found out I reviewed her first novel Saving Sophie and we worked with our schedules and I posted my interview with her yesterday here and her author guest blog will be posted on Thursday, May 7.

You wouldn’t expect these two to ever have anything more than a friendly acquaintance because Tally Bennett has always been a giver while Brett Huntsman has always been a playboy. After a snowboarding accident Brett has to deal with the fact that he can’t use his hands as well as one of his legs and he is in need of someone to take care of him until his casts are taken off. Tally’s best friend and Brett’s younger sister, Sophie, can’t make it back home to take care of her brother so she needs Tally’s help to do it for her. Now at first Tally’s not so happy to be around the self-centered playboy but she’s happy to help him out in more ways than one—but for one night and one night only. But then Sophie asks her for one more favor and that is to take care of the arrogant rich boy Brett while his broken bones heal. Tally has just started developing her new bath and body line called Naughty Body, which could be a very profitable new line. So she’s wondering how she’s supposed to find the time to take care of Brett and deal with his latest request which is that they treat themselves to a six-week sex fest. Brett has always gotten what he wants no matter what and now he wants to have wonderfully exciting sex with Tally after their one night at the hospital. But this sex fest with the thriving, earthy Tally affects Brett in a way he never saw coming after never having a serious relationship with a woman before and now he’s just discovered the one thing money can’t buy…Tally’s heart.

After reading Elle Amery’s first two Quartzton series novels, Saving Sophie and Grace on Fire which introduced Tally Bennett and Brett Huntsman, I was really looking forward to reading more about Tally and Brett who finally have their own love story told after their best friends and siblings hook up. We get an introduction to Tally and Brett in the first two novels but now we get to know them so much better as their love story gets told at last. Tally is a really intriguing character because she seems so very different from her best friends Sophie and Grace since she is not at all concerned with her wardrobe and is a very carefree woman that some people might categorize as a hippie. Since Tally was a child and met Brett they have always had a sort of friendly acquaintance kind of relationship because they had nothing in common especially since Tally was and still is Brett’s younger sister Sophie’s best friend. Tally is not one of your typical heroines you usually read about in romance novels and that made her so much more relatable as a character. Brett was raised like a little prince who got whatever he wanted and was taught that money could buy you anything no matter what. But that changed once he really got to know Tally after his accident, which was caused because he was flirting with a woman. I think that Brett is one hot man who is really in need of a reality check to kick him in the pants because though he seems like a self-centered rich playboy I can see that there is a really loving man underneath.

Brett’s accident is probably the best thing to have happen to both Brett and Tally because it gave them a chance to see that they were meant for one another. I had a really wonderful time reading this novel because it was pretty steamy yet it had such a character development that I really thought followed with the first two novels very nicely. Now Tally and Brett may really seem like complete opposites while you read Tally’s Gift but I knew they were meant to be with each other because they have that intense spark that just really gets to you. I was a bit sad yet happy again when I finish this third and last novel in Elle Amery’s Quartzton series. I was sad to have come to the end of the novel but I was happy because I have heard that Elle might be working on another book for her Quartzton series. Elle Amery delivers a wonderfully deliciously hot, sexy and thrilling conclusion to her amazing Quartzton series that will have you panting from the start with steamy scenes that will keep you reading until the very end to find the happily ever after.

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
