PTSD a C Maher has knack for writing highly damaged characters nd yet somehow making me believe in their happy ending She should probably see bout bottling this talent she d be millionaire within minutesTanya is continuation of the uthor s earlier novella The Bridge It does stand lone fairly well but the past romantic couple is directly tied to this story featuring the past heroine s sister nd the past hero s brother For that reason I felt like they sometimes overshadowed this new romance And while I think Maher does n excellent job writing in shorter format with this particular story I found myself just flat out wanting of Tanya nd Jack Still it s very good story nd Maher is easily one of my favorite writers currently working today She writes challenging different stories that you might not necessarily be in love with but that you can t help ppreciate ll the same On my personal rating scale I gave this story B Seemed like long epilogue than its own story Last year I read The Bridge by Rebecca Rogers Maher very powerful novella bout two people who meet when they re on bridge ready to commit suicide As you can probably guess these two end up leaving this bridge nd falling in love In those short pages Maher really excelled t giving us very dark emotional love storyTanya takes place during the wedding of Henry nd Christa from The Bridge Tanya is Christa s sister recovering lcoholic who comes into town late one night for the weeding weekend celebrations nd heads straight to the bar to stare t the liuor Although she only drinks seltzer water she likes to punish herself with feeling guilty Growing up with drug dependent mother Tanya was raised by her sister nd lways feels like she is the selfish one When their mother became sick with ddiction Tanya turned to the bottle When she gets the phone call that their mother died of n overdose Tanya turns to the bottle It isn t until Christa is diagnosed with breast cancer that Tanya decided to get help But even two years later she feels like she isn t worthy to live life that will give her happiness So she turns to nonymous sex When he sat down cross from me ll six feet of him I figured shit it s my lucky day A good looking guy when I would have taken nything with pulse I m not choosy when I get like that Sometimes the dirtier they re the better It s the filth of it I m fter the vague sense of self punishment of eating something bad for me I like when they re mean or sexist or stupid I like taking what I want from these men nd then shoving them out the doorBut this guy His restlessness is what got to me the fact that he couldn t keep still I wanted to push him down onto bed nd force him to stop moving To lie there nd be good nd take itAnd he did He did thatJack is the hero s brother from The Bridge Jack has just returned from the Peace Corps in Guyana nd has no idea what to do with his life Growing up extremely privileged then working in very poor rea that past to do with his life Growing up extremely privileged then working in very poor rea that past years nd now thrust back into New York City Jack feels lost When Tanya makes eyes t him from cross the bar nd propositions him his legs re following her before he can even think straightJack may come cross s of the one in control of his life nd his self but Tanya kind of forces this side of Jack to the front that shocks even him But he is happy for it I flip her over to her back I feel her breath on my neck gasping She bites me nd I fall gainst her nd then move faster Give it to me I grab the back of her knees nd push going deeper Give it I have no idea where these words come from They re like nothing I ve ever heard myself say They rise up from some deep underground place in me that I m not even sure I want to knowThis book has some really good intense love scenes Just sayin I love this uthor s voice An erotic novella that uses sex to show the vulnerabilities these two re facing They both feel lost in life nd I think they both feel like they don t deserve to be happy They re so happy for their siblings who have gone through so much nd have found such love but they don t know how to embrace this feeling They speak through their physical ctions in the bedroom nd then we have very nice romantic endingWhat I think this uthor excels t in short setting is giving us very broken characters who re not magically healed because they fall in love setting is giving us very broken characters who re not magically healed because they fall in love will lways struggle with being n lcoholic It will take Jack time to find his purpose in life Christa nd Henry from The Bridge re still dealing with battling depression These characters have heavy issuesand they lso fall in loveVery much looking forward to

Way back into the light It s bout realizing that what may be normal for other people isn t normal for you nd it s okay It s bout realizing that we ll make mistakes nd that we have to own them It s bout realizing that our past is our past nd it doesn t define who we re Tanya is bout realizing who you re nd discovering the person you want to beSource Author 45 stars Great read short nd sweet I somehow managed not to realize until I started it that it connected to Hurricane Lily The Bridge nd Fault Lines It was fun to revisit ll those couples I should have been diligent bout checking out RRM fter having so many feelings bout The Bridge back when I read it literally years go but while I was mooning through my Kindle looking restlessly for something to read on lockdown I discovered I d lso purchased TanyaThis is semi follow up The Bridge nd I would recommend reading The Bridge first because otherwise seeing Henry nd Christa preparing for wedding won t melt you to goo uite so effectively packing similar degree of intensity into similar slight page countTanya is bout well Tanya Christa s lcoholic sister who bandoned her midway through her first round of chemo nd Henry s brother Jack recently turned from doing something or other with the Peace Corps I will say it slightly weirded me out that this was romance between the siblings of each of the leads in the previous book like I can t imagine nything worse than one my sibling s dating my one of partner s siblings But it wasn t exactly intentional on the part of the ny of the character s Tanya nd Jack have n nonymous one night stand on the way to the wedding nd WHOOPS so I guess weird shit like that just happens sometimesAnyway Tanya is few years down the road to recover nd has recently supported through Christa nother round of chemo For people who The Bridge which ended with Christa nd Henry essentially committing not to die nd be together despite the fact he s still suicidally depressed nd her breast cancer has just come back CHRISTA IS OKAY CHRISTA IS OKAY I can t believe how much joy I felt over that even though I sort of believed it nyway t the end The Bridge Anyway Tanya is still self loathing wreck because she s substance buser because both see nd Christa have n intensely complicated relationship with their damaged now deceased mother nd because she ran out on Christa the first time round Part of her coping strategy is selfish rough very satisfying sex with men she doesn t have to care boutAlthough naturally this plan rather goes out the window when she meets last night s selfish rough very satisfying sex partner gain t the wedding I feel the book packs lot in forgiveness self forgiveness redemption hope choice despite the length but much like The Bridge it has faintly ephemeral uality These re moments in people s lives It s not full story It s nothing like full story But it s enough to let you care for them nd hope for them nd believe in better future for ll of them I really do love that nd it s such uniue nd powerful talent this capacity RRM has to tell you everything you need in collection of careful scenes nd delicate gapsAlso what happened to her Why isn t she writing ny She s so ridiculously brilliantI dored Tanya she s messy complicated heroine who has done some ugly things nd fears her own ugliness There s lso n edge of femdom to her sexual interactions with Jack which was unexpected nd really rather delightful I didn t uite warm to Jack like I did to Tanya lthough it s interesting to see how the same set of circumstances shaped both him nd Henry I suppose in the same way the same set of circumstances shaped Christa nd Tanya But whereas both Christa nd Henry felt fully realised in The Bridge Jack seemed to exist to be the sort and Henry felt fully realised in The Bridge Jack seemed to exist to be the sort man Tanya might needWhich y know That s cool Tanya does indeed deserve good man who gets her I know you have story you re telling yourself bout this weekend Tanya That you screwed It Up That You up that you everything up But what if it s different story What if it s just two people who met under strange circumstances but who like each other She shakes her head utomatically I told you I m not the kind of woman who What is it that you think I want exactly Someone to look pretty nd clean my socks It s the twenty first century You don t have to be nice You can be smart nd funny nd sexy s hell nd believe me that will be than enough Indeed I think it s fairly easy to give character disorderillness to explain their ctions nd create drama whether it be depression substance buse PTSD etc I think it s much harder to pay the subject matter the proper respect nd weave believable romance into the mix This is pet peeve of mine nd Rebecca Rogers Maher never lets me downIn Tanya Rogers Maher crafts gorgeous unflinching story of recovery guilt nd redemption that never takes the easy way out but lso never drowns in sea unnecessary ngst I m lways floored when I pick up her books expecting depressing tale but instead find realistic flawed yet inspiring characters nd story that leaves me filled with joy nd hope I feel like I learn things reading her books How to live life fully how to ppreciate the things nd people I have in my lifeI can t say bout Tanya that isn t lready in the summary other than read it Read everything she writes You won t be disappointed My friend Andrea wrote detailed review if you would like to check it outWe first hear bout both Tanya nd Jack s the siblings of the troubled Christa nd Henry in The Bridge While you don t Need To Have Read That to have read that first it will increase your enjoyment of Tanya immensely leave you weeping with joy t the end It s beautiful to see how Tanya nd Jack who ren t portrayed in the most flattering light in The Bridge come full circle both s couple nd s family unit There is lso cameo with character from Fault Lines Again it s not necessary to have read it first
