Dennis Hascomb is a physically blessed young film student who is living in a nightmare. The attraction between Raven & Dennis is instant and combustible but they will have a lot to overcome to be together.
Tackling The Tight End is a sweet often angsty tale of love, betrayal and expectations. It deals with abuse, cultural identity and expectations. This book will keep you thinking long past the last page. Well done Ms. Lane.
It takes talent and a good story to make a person empathize with and care about a character that was truly unlikable in a previous book. Tara Lain managed to do this with Dennis. We see Dennis and his actions in a totally new light. He wants to make films and he has plenty of talent for it, but his home life dictates everything that he does. He feels trapped and hopeless. The more you know about Dennis, his life, and the secrets that he holds, the more you understand his pain. The best thing that happens to Dennis is meeting Raven.
Raven has his own set of issues. His tribe has a casino and they want him to be everything he can be to bring in people to the casino and do the Tribe proud. In his father's mind, that means playing football professionally. Raven doesn't think he's good enough for the professional league and just wants to work with LGBT kids. He and his best friend, Walt, have a fictional relationship to keep Raven's family from putting even more pressure on him. When his father decides they need a new commercial/ads for the casino, Raven meets Dennis.
The cast of characters in this one is pretty full. I loved Raven and his grandfather. The story of being two-spirited is beautiful, and one that I think more people should know. Walt was another wonderful addition to the story and a great friend to Raven. In this one, the bad guys really were bad. Raven's parents, while not horrible like Dennis', really needed a swift kick.

Tara is one of my all time favorite authors because she excels at bringing her characters to life and you can empathize with their actions. You will never regret reading this story, in fact this is going into my 5 ⭐️re-read collection!
I loved Raven from the start of the book. Also loved Raven's grandfather.
I didn't like Dennis in the beginning. Started to like him more when you learned his story.
At first I will admit this book did drag for me a little bit but once I got halfway through this I was grabbed and loving it!
I really loved Ravens character and the way he treated Dennis... Then there was Dennis's character which I will admit took me awhile to warm up to him at first. For some reason I was just not a big fan of his at first. I did like these two men together by the end of the book though..
You will get action, angst and steam in this book and some on the edge of your seat moments too! So I will leave this review with... I really liked this book and would recommend this series!
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review from Inked Rainbow Reads.
