Amy Harmon nailed me in chest with the feels!!!
FACING THE GIANTS
”I’m big, strong, and angry.”
We met Tag in ‘The Law of Moses’ as a secondary character. Tag is a lot of things to a lot of different people: boss, friend, lover, brother, son, hero, etc. In his twenty-six years he’s been through a lot, more than most people his age or even older have dealt with. MMA fighting is how Tag channels his energy and feelings.
”Men have always fought. Women have always danced.”
I loved the heroine, Millie. Even though she has obstacles in her path they don’t prevent her from living her life. Millie makes no excuses or apologizes for who she is but instead lives with purpose. Unlike any other female Tag has ever encounter he is drawn to her on a deeper level. While others may have dismissed her Tag finds her ”an intoxicating mix of girl and enigma, familiar yet completely foreign.”
”Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”
Ms. Harmon nailed it again when she created Henry. Secondary characters are a Harmon specialty. She has a knack for creating the most phenomenal supporting characters. My all-time favorite is Bailey from “Making Faces” and now I’m adding Henry to that list. Henry is Millie’s younger brother who talks in sports metaphors. He touched my heart and made me smile.
It’s been a day since I’ve read this story and I’m still thinking about it. My son said, “We know it’s a good book when mom cries.” At one point my daughter asked if she needed to bring me a box of tissues. I adored this emotionally charged love story between Tag & Millie. Facing the giants that stood in their way was what made them strong and bonded them together. NEVER GIVE UP HOPE!
Putting into words how I feel about this book make me feel inadequate. I just know that this passionately told love story gripped my heart and made me fall in love with all the characters. If you enjoy unique and poignant stories then this book is a must read.

She said I was like a song. Her favorite song. A song isn’t something you can see. It’s something you feel, something you move to, something that disappears after the last note is played.
I won my first fight when I was eleven years old, and I’ve been throwing punches ever since. Fighting is the purest, truest, most elemental thing there is. Some people describe heaven as a sea of unending white. Where choirs sing and loved ones await. But for me, heaven was something else. It sounded like the bell at the beginning of a round, it tasted like adrenaline, it burned like sweat in my eyes and fire in my belly. It looked like the blur of screaming crowds and an opponent who wanted my blood.
For me, heaven was the octagon.
Until I met Millie, and heaven became something different. I became something different. I knew I loved her when I watched her stand perfectly still in the middle of a crowded room, people swarming, buzzing, slipping around her, her straight dancer’s posture unyielding, her chin high, her hands loose at her sides. No one seemed to see her at all, except for the few who squeezed past her, tossing exasperated looks at her unsmiling face. When they realized she wasn’t normal, they hurried away. Why was it that no one saw her, yet she was the first thing I saw?
If heaven was the octagon, then she was my angel at the center of it all, the girl with the power to take me down and lift me up again. The girl I wanted to fight for, the girl I wanted to claim. The girl who taught me that sometimes the biggest heroes go unsung and the most important battles are the ones we don’t think we can win.
**This is David ‘Tag’ Taggert’s book, a supporting character introduced in The Law of Moses. This is a stand-alone story.
