One of the things that really drew me to the book was the whole “Tap Left”, using a dating app as a part of the story. Unfortunately it seems as though that story arc took a back seat to the rest of the story, and the way that it was used was predictable. The story is told from both Lola and Daire’s points of view and I did appreciate what each of the character’s voice added to the narrative.
There were quite a few errors and it another run through with a proofreader or editor would do the book some good.
I didn’t dislike the book, but I didn’t really connect with the characters and it ranked pretty high on the angst chart. This is the first book I’ve read by the author but I would definitely pick up others.
The magic word is…MINE
I am a big sucker when the hero gets possessive and territorial (hmmm…that’s probably why I love paranormal so much). Of course, there are stipulations. It cannot be used when the hero and heroine just meet (CREEPY). It cannot be used like two blokes fighting over a toy (DOUCHEWAFFLE). It cannot be used by the psychotic serial killer looking for his next prey (SCARY). It really just needs to be used the right way. So, you put MINE in the blurb you better make sure you’re doing it the right way.
Tap Left was kind of messy. The main characters have messed up pasts and some serious history to overcome. I admit that I spent most of the first half putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. I wanted to know why someone so horrible and acted so meanly, made such an effort to be in the heroine’s orbit. I struggled to understand why the heroine was so hard on herself. Why do people make their lives so much harder by caring about others before themselves?
Sassy's rambling, skip to the next paragraph to avoid, her OTT mumbo jumbo. See, I’m a firm believer that if I’m happy, everyone around me will be happier too. But, then again, I’ve learnt to be that way. I forget that these young whipper-snappers haven’t been around the block a time or two. I’m using 42-year-old logic when, at their age, I was making the same bloody mistakes. This is the part I reach in most books where I want to step into the pages and give them a word of advice. My advice would be…find your happy place, communicate and last but definitely not least, if you love can them at their worst you will love them even more at their best.
Tap Left was a little bit kinky, of the HOT and STEAMY kind. I loved most of their “play” but one scene made me want to kick the hero where the sun don’t shine. Both characters are dealing with damaged pasts and have issues with guilt and neglect. Their self-loathing makes them act out in ways that hurt and manipulate. I always saw their actions as reactions to protect themselves. If you hurt them and walk it’s better than being hurt and left behind.
I haven’t read many books like Tap Left as I tend to tap out before it takes a stranglehold. I experienced the highs and lows and felt my heart break and flutter with their emotions. I took a deep breath when the emotions got too much to control my anger, frustration, lust and sorrow. In the end, I finished with a smile and a sigh. I enjoyed the journey, and again, A. Zavarelli has given me something that I thought I wouldn’t want but loved in the end.
Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks are new narrators for me and I enjoyed both of them in this story. I have no complaints to the performance and would listen to more books they narrate. I would recommend the audible version of this book.
This is my first book by A. Zavarelli and I'm very much impressed with the way she took one of my least favorite tropes and had me completely sucked into the story.
This was a hate to lovers trope and let me tell you, you can really feel the hate in the beginning of this story. It felt like torture whenever these two spent any time together. As the pieces of the past started to unfold, you slowly realize that the reason for the hate isn't what you might think.
There were so many times I wondered why these two continued to put themselves through all this angst when they could have just walked away from each other. The truth is, they really couldn't walk away. They needed each other and I really like how this author unfolded the story the way that she did.
This is one of those stories that you really got to stick with. You truly see the characters evolve. The ending was just that much sweeter for all the change that happened and the way these two finally faced past demons.
Love and hate are emotions so close they are often crossed and these two do it in every interaction. Its painful and hard to read at time because you know underneath it all they care about each other but the hurts and anger and guilt just boil over. It does provide some of the best foreplay and passion. But when it's over, they just keep hurting each other and themselves.
Addiction comes in many forms. Addicted to alcohol and drugs, addicted to love, addicted to each other. It's all in this book.
Their past hurts have driven them for years to torture themselves and each other. Lack of confidence, dominance and pain are like lighting a match and waiting for the explosion. When it explodes I felt it deep in my gut, my heart. But there is a HEA for Lola and Daire. Not your typical white knights and damsels in distress, but one of acceptance, self-respect, forgiveness and Love (and they do love each other).
This is quite a painful journey but one well worth taking with Lola and Daire. TapLeft with them and discover what can happen.
