“You ready to show me how amazing you are at this?”
“Always,” he said, grinning at her. “One amazing, bad-ass tattoo coming right up.”
This book was really good. It was fun, sexy, hot, emotional and had suspense. For me this book needed more suspense but it was really good. This book is for tattoo lovers out there! Now what is this book about? This is about a girl named Harper that ran from her past. She was attacked by someone she trusted and she has the scars to prove it. Harper wants to do something about that scars, she does not want the constant reminder of that night. Harper is terrified that her attacker would find her so she does not live a full life. Harper was a teacher but she no longer is one because of the attack. Harper decided to do something about the scars, she needed it gone to move on with her life. Harper found herself in front of Second Circle tattoo shop at one in the morning to enlist Trent whose specialty was inking over scars. She wanted him to design and create a large tattoo that turned her back into something beautiful. Trent was immediately drawn to her, but once he saw the depth of her pain, he wanted to help her get through all her pain.And with each tattooing session, they grew closer until their feelings for each other could no longer be denied…
“Fuck.” Trent growled and pulled her into his chest… His eyes were steely. Focused. “We’re in this together. We can keep you safe. I don’t want us to have secrets, darlin’. I want to know more. Everything.”
Okay, Trent is so totally swoon worthy! He will also melt your heart with all the sweet words.Trent was the most kind, gentle and caring guy you could imaging. He was patient, understanding, and did an amazing job at always putting Harper at ease. Not only that but he was funny, charming, oh-so swoony and once he knew Harper trusted him, he unleashed pure sexiness! Harper was a very strong heroine. Having survived a truly horrific ordeal, she naturally had a lot of fears. But she was also determined to keep living her life and her decision to get the tattoo was the first step towards finally putting the past behind her and taking back the control that had been stolen from her. Under Trent’s TLC and love, she definitely came a long way. The build of there relationship between the tattoo sessions was so sweet and i obviously made my heart flutter. Even thought Trent’s body is full of tattoo’s (making you think of him as a bad boy) he is actually my dream guy….. I loved the way Trent both respected her, helped her, and loved her, while supporting her, and encouraging her to move forward with her life.
“I don’t want to move.”
“So don’t.” He pressed a soft kiss into her hair.
“No one has hugged me in a very long time,” she said… “Thank you.”
“Any time. Tattoos and hugs. I’m great at them both. Just don’t tell the guys out there or I’ll never hear the end of it.”
This book is told in alternating POV’S which means we got to see into both characters minds. This book ws easy to read and it was also quite steamy.This is the first standalone in a series of standalones. This has a complete story and Trent and Harper’s romance is completely wrapped up by the end (with an epilogue). The next book is a different couple. If you looking for a deliciously swoon worthy, sexy, fun read with sweet loving romance and a dash (and I mean a dash) of suspense. Cujo and Drea are due to have their story told in early 2016, I am looking forward to seeing where Scarlett takes this group of characters next.
