#ReleaseBlitz #Review: Tacker by Sawyer Bennett

Tacker (Arizona Vengeance, Book #5)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: November 5, 2019

I am not okay. 

Fifteen months ago, my life was turned upside down when the plane I was piloting went down. Injured and trapped in the wreckage, I had to watch my fiancée die a painfully slow death, which is something that can really mess with your head. 

Since that day, I’ve had little desire to do much of anything. Except play hockey, that is. Because that is the one place where the bad memories are banished and I can escape my pain. 

But off the ice, I’m spiraling out of control. Losing the grip on my life and putting myself and my career in danger. Now, thanks to a string of bad decisions, I’ve been ordered to complete therapy in order to stay on the team. 

The problem? Nora Wayne, my beautiful and somewhat unconventional therapist. I can’t buy into the brand of happy clappy crap this woman is feeding me. What could she possibly understand about the type of loss that I’ve suffered? How does she know anything about finding happiness after losing the most important person in your life? 

Turns out, I’ve got a lot to learn, and she’s just the person I need to break through those walls I’ve erected. 

I am not okay. 
But for the first time in a long time, I know that I will be.

Sawyer Bennett pulled all the stops writing this beautiful, emotional story.

This book is the story of a man who went through something that completely changed his life, a man that suffered a loss that affected who he was to his core. Tacker lived with a self imposed guilt, self destroying and going through life surviving instead of living. That is, until an incident changed the path he was walking and he's giving the choice to get help or lose what he worked so hard for, his hockey career. Enter Nora, a therapist who uses unconventional ways to help her clients. At first sight Nora looks like a happy go lucky woman, but as you get to know her you see a woman with a tragic past who chose to live life to the fullest and help people like her who have been through tragic events in life.

Little by little Nora helps Tacker to understand that life sometimes happens and is no ones fault, just events that we have to go through to grow, to learn. Nora helps him to start feeling joy again, to live life to the fullest, all this while reviving her own personal story and letting the last of her demons come to the surface while healing her soul.

This story is simply beautiful, touching, heartbreaking, soul soothing. Bennett addresses some heavy subjects in this book, but the way the story is written gives the reader understanding of each and every one of them and to feel empathy for those who suffered similar losses.

Tacker will make you cry, will make you laugh, but most of all it will teach you that there's always light at the end of a dark tunnel and that sometimes it's ok to relay on others to help you alleviate the pain inside.
