Book Review: Maybe Matt's Miracle by Tammy Falkner

Maybe Matt's Miracle by Tammy Falkner
What he needed was a miracle…

Matthew Reed has seen his share of problems. But he’s a Reed and Reeds can overcome anything. Matt is content working in his family’s tattoo parlor with his brothers surrounding him. The only thing he’s lacking is the ability to have a family of his own. Then his battle with cancer leads him to meet a woman who just might need him as much as he needs her.

She didn’t need anything...

Skylar Morgan is happy. She has a boyfriend. Sure, he doesn’t make her heart pound faster and he really doesn’t support her when she needs it. But she doesn’t need much. Does she? She’s happy to be self-sufficient and she’s happy that she doesn’t have a tremendous amount of responsibility. She’s educated, has a great job, and she has enough money for a lifetime. But what she lacks, she doesn’t even realize until she meets him. And them. The ones who change her life forever

Maybe Matt’s Miracle was a quick, sweet look back into the lives of the Reeds.

Matt, like the rest of the Reed brothers, is kind hearted, tattooed, and oh so sugary sweet. He’s recovering from cancer and the bitter betrayal of two close friends, when he meets Sky. He works with his brothers at the tattoo shop, and knows Sky’s nieces and nephew through their mom Kendra. Kendra and Matt were friends during cancer treatment.

Sky is a lawyer in a dead-end relationship. She cannot stand her father, and her mother insults her or ignores her. This makes her bitter and hurt. Even so, she wants to please them so she becomes a lawyer. And when Sky’s dad approaches her asking her to take care of her half-sisters kids, Sky cannot refuse. Sky who was planning on having a nice things and a “respectable” life and job, is suddenly tossed into the chaos and love of single-motherhood. And along with that unexpectedly comes a tall, handsome, and tattooed man.

Loved the aspect that the kids brought to this book. Each of the children in Sky’s care brought their own dynamic. And I loved scenes between Sky, Matt, and the kids. I wanted more though. A lot could have been fluffed out a little more (says me, lover of fluff) and lot of different angst could have been explored or delved into. However, this book is short and covers a lot considering the page numbers are limited. Simply put, I wanted more.

Matt and Sky’s relationship moves fast. And fans of the series will be excited to know that Matt even gets a bloody nose. I always enjoy how the author works that into different books. Matt and Sky’s relationship is tender and sizzling. In fact, true to form, this books features a lot of sizzling bedroom activity. Matt has some alpha tendencies that I usually enjoyed and even some had me rolling my eyes (pff, men, amiright? ;p). Matt was incredible sweet to Sky and the kids and wanted to help take care of them, which makes you love him even more.

The other brothers are there, and one of my favorite parts of the book is when the whole family is together goofing off. This is a Fun, heartwarming story. And if you’re fans of the Reeds anyway, you’ll love love love Matt’s story. The ending destroyed my heart…but in a great way. Can’t wait to get my hands on Paul’s book next.

Thanks to NetGalley and Night Shift Publishing for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review.
