As a favor to her best friend, Tally
Bennett agrees to help her friend’s brother, Brett Huntsman,
recuperate from a horrible skiing accident. Tally knows
that it won’t be easy caring for Brett – he is spoiled,
vain, and pretty much used to having things his way or no
way. Plus, there is the added complication of Tally’s
feelings for Brett. She has loved this man for longer than
she wants to admit to. With Brett nothing is easy – Tally
knows this and accepts this. When they come together in a
blaze of passion so hot their sheets should be scorched,
Tally knows that their time together is short. Brett would
never love and accept a straightforward country girl like
Tally, would he?
Reviewing Tally’s Gift is
extremely difficult for me. Never before have I ever hated
a hero more than I hate Brett Huntsman. More than once I
could picture myself as Tally smothering him with a pillow.
Out of commission with a broken leg and other injuries,
instead of being grateful for the help that Tally is
striving to give him, Brett decides to be a petulant and
annoying jerk. He is demanding, sarcastic, and basically
every single facet of his personality was unlikeable. I
hated him at the beginning of Tally’s Gift,
and I hated him at the end. No matter that he did redeem
himself by falling in love with Tally.
Tally’s Gift was well
written and the love scenes were scorching hot. I liked
the idea of the plot very much – being a nursemaid to a good
looking man has a naughty feel to it. But that is the only
thing I liked. Unless you are a fan of petulant juvenile
acting heroes, I would suggest skipping Tally’s Gift.
