Saving Tatum is a New Adult novel about a young woman, Tatum, who has been closed off from herself and truly living because of her brother's untimely death. The object of her anger and love is Jude, a womanizing sexy man. He is not without his own personal tragedies. Together these two make a fantastic couple to follow as they learn things about each other and love and forgiveness. They are both closed in their own way to love and deep matters of the heart. Micalea unravels their hearts on the page. It was truly a page turner (or slider, if you're on your eBook).
I picked this book up because I love guys in beanies. I don't know why I love this look, but if a guy can pull it off...well, it's just sexy. And I also needed a good, solid romantic read to help me manage these chilly winter days. I'm a little late jumping on the Micalea fan-band-wagon, but I am so GLAD I did! She can tell a story.
Here are some of my favorite lines, highlighted in the Kindle:
JUDE: Don't you know, falling is the best part of flying.
TATUM: I'm pretty sure I wanted to lick him in that moment. Could you get drunk off sugar?...Yep, you could definitely get drunk on sugar.
JUDE: I like this side of you...the real one.
JUDE: You were f-ing made for me...You're mine, do you understand me?
TATUM: I found that Jude made me want to be honest. I didn't want to hide myself from him. I wanted to give it all to him.
Micalea really did a great job setting the characters up. She laid the solid ground work to build the perfect tension and wow, I fell in love with both Tatum and Jude. Well done and I am ready for more.
