Book Review: Tank by Erin Bevan
Tank is a romance novel about two damaged people who have suffered abuse. Tyler and Annie meet at a turning point in their lives. Both are trying to get past their horrific pasts, and in Annie’s case her present. They both suffer from PTSD and want to build a future.
Tyler inherits a house from his grandfather and moves to Black Widow, Texas to make a new life, forget his abusive father, and join a motorcycle club. The Blue Guardians, are dedicated to protecting and helping children and women who’ve been the victims of abuse. Tyler wants to prevent what happened to him from happening to others. He’s a big guy with a big heart.
Annie, or Beauty as Tyler calls her, is a victim of a physically and mentally abusive relationship. She feels trapped and doomed as is so often the case when a victim is bullied and beaten. She’s being pounded into submission by her fiancé, a demonic man who is bipolar and powerful.
Tyler, who is given the moniker of Tank by the head of the Blue Guardians, realizes that he and Annie knew each other as children and he quickly recognizes that Annie is being abused. How will he save and protect her? Can he get past his own abusive childhood? Can he and Annie rise like Phoenix’s from the flames of abuse?
Erin Bevin has built a sweet, satisfying tale of the power of love to heal, and the perseverance of the human spirit.
