Tats - eBook


Lee Hammond's girlfriend has moved on to other women. Deciding she's done the last of her now ex's laundry, Lee hops on the Harley, ripe for adventure. One thunderstorm, a brief stint as a funeral crasher, two ruined shoes and several cheerleaders later, she's still planning to run away. Better yet, she's got one of the cheerleaders along for the ride.

Not just any cheerleader, either. Vivian Baxter is that cheerleader, the one that made Lee certain back in high school that she was never going to be like all the other girls.

Vivian's feminine wiles prove invaluable on a road trip-until her past catches up to them. And Vivian's past has two legs, a lot of henchmen and a very big gun. Lee and Vivian may never get out of Oklahoma, and Oklahoma may never be the same.

First-time novelist Layce Gardner's love story sparkles with irreverent wit, unexpected developments and features two women in the race of their lives on the trip of a lifetime.

GCLS Goldie Awards

Tats — Finalist, Romantic Suspense/Intrigue/Adventure.


Echo Magazine

A classic road trip story with a lesbian biker twist, Tats is an amusing and entertaining ride with realistic, fully developed and colorful characters and some suspense and danger added to the mix... First time novelist Layce Gardner shows considerable talent in the way the story is woven, like a gaudy tapestry ... or perhaps a biker's colors.

Terry's LesFic Reviews

If you want a book for a light hearted read and a good laugh to escape reality, you won't get much better than Tats. There is a laugh on almost every page. Just don't read it in public, you may be carried off! Being a Brit, I don't always 'get' American humor, but this is so funny, I'm still grinning just thinking about it.

Tats: Tats is often laugh-out-loud funny -- as when Vivian decides to treat Lee to the "full monty" wax at a day spa -- and sometimes charmingly silly -- as when the duo decide to "camp" overnight inside a Wal-Mart. Vivian, it turns out, is on the run from an English mafia don and they turn in odd circles trying to avoid "Prince Charles..." The debut novel by veteran screen writer, Layce Gardner, Tats takes the iconic buddy road trip story to a new place.
