Blurb
Life isn’t promised, love isn’t easy, and relationships
aren’t always clean, but everyone has their soulmate who is willing to forgive
when it would be better to forget.
 
Trevor “Tank”
Trumbolt
 
I never thought in the blink of an eye my life could change,
but it did. Cresting a hill driving to my favorite fishing spot, I was hit
head-on by a teenager with no regard for anyone’s life but his own. 
The recovery process has been hard, painful, and damn near
beating me down.
 
The bright spot? Blaze.
 
Surviving the wreck has given me a second chance to make a
life with her. Not knowing if I’ll ever be able to rejoin the Moonshine Task
Force again has brought my world into focus. It’s made me realize what’s
important.
 
Blaze. Stella. My brothers. My sister.
 
The ego that ran Blaze away before isn’t here any longer.
What’s left is a man who’s holding his heart in his hands and a burning hope
that once I’m healed she’ll still be around.
 
Daphne “Blaze”
Coleman
 
There’s only been one person in the world who’s accepted me
for who I am – from the fiery red of my hair and vibrant tattoos covering parts
of my body to the smartness of my mouth and my desire to be matched in the
bedroom.
 
That man is Trevor Trumbolt. When he asked me to give up my
job as an EMT because he saw the dangers I face one scary afternoon, it spelled
the end for us.
 
Now that he’s been injured, he needs my help and my love.
I’ll give it all freely, but in the end I’m gonna need him to understand one
thing about relationships. The give and take, love and sadness, pleasure and
pain is a two-way street. He’s either in this with me or he’s not, but at the
end of the day, I won’t let him boss me around.
 
If there’s anything that can handle the steel of a tank –
it’s the heat of a blaze.

~ 3.5 Stars ~

Tank is an enjoyable read, but I felt it was missing that WOW factor that just sucks a reader in.

I loved the characters and I thought the storyline was interesting enough, but I felt it lacked that angst and drama that can keep a reader on their toes. I thought the pace and flow of the story was well written. I have really come to enjoy Laramie Briscoe’s writing style. This just isn’t my favorite of her books that I have read.

Tank is a standalone novel told in Dual POV, but it is my recommendation that the reader read Renegade first. Yes this book does involve a new couple, but Blaze and Trevor’s story really did begin in Book 1 (Renegade). The start of this book is overlapped from the first book, but I kind of really liked that because it was like a refresher for the reader. Being that I read Renegade awhile ago, it help get me back into these characters lives and what their story was going to be about.

I will say there is one aspect of this story that kept getting touched on (a past scenario between Trevor and Blaze) that I felt like we missed something big from their past. I kept struggling to remember if it was in the first book. I don’t know, I just wish it would’ve come out in a different way or maybe sooner in the story. This book does touch on a serious subject, but I thought it was well written. I loved the direction she took Blaze’s character in when it came to her career and family. (you’ll understand more when Blaze’s secret is revealed)

In Tank we get to know Trevor and Blaze a lot better. We see more of their background and their personal upbringings. This book like I said takes off where we are left at the end of Book 1. This whole story is about Blaze and Trevor finding their way back to each other and having a second chance at love and life. Yes they have their ups and downs but what they learned in the end was what is important!! I loved the overall theme of their story.

I also enjoyed that we got to see Ryan and Whitney some more in this book. There was a time I felt that the focus was on them a little too much, but they do really play a huge part in Blaze and Trevor’s lives. I also loved how she set up the premise for the next book in this series. I think Havoc’s story is going to an interesting one 😉

So if you are in the mood for a second chance love story that doesn’t have a lot of drama but has a healing feeling to it, then this is a book you should read.
