Ink is indelible.
So is love, at least in theory.
He’s an over-inked, reformed bad boy and she is the slightly older, seemingly out of reach woman who’s head over heels (actually knees over shoulders) in love with him. Almost as much as he is with her.
Somehow, they have remained oblivious to their mutual attraction for five years.
One night, they take the plunge. Love conquers all, right?
They expose hearts and bodies, expecting a happily ever after until a terrible secret is revealed—during climax.
Anything worth having is worth bleeding for—and boy will they bleed—but will it be enough to drain the taint of that secret, or will it be fatal for both of them?
Some things are more permanent than tattoos.
Holy crap! That's what I actually said out loud more than once while reading this book. I don't know any other way to describe the intense emotions that I was feeling just from reading this story. There were so many unexpected twists and turns (and a couple expected ones) that I just couldn't put it down. I got so caught up in the story that time seemed to stop. I read it all in one sitting and never even left the recliner.
My heart just broke for both the characters. You could sense their attraction, but both were denying it for different reasons. They both had things from their pasts that they needed to deal with in order to give themselves fully to the other.
There are so many things I want to tell you about this book, but I want you to experience it as I did, going in with nothing but high expectations. Besides, there is no way I can do this book justice with just a few words in a review.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a great romance story. I look forward to reading more from this talented author.
I'm not that interesting, but the people in my head are. I've had fantastical ideas floating around my brain for as long as I can remember, I just finally got brave enough to share them. I was born and raised in the south, if the name Verlene didn’t give that away already. Thanks to the military (myself & spouse), I’ve been all over the US. I now call the west coast home with my husband, my (as of OCT) adult son, my high school daughter, an obnoxiously obese cat, 2 spoiled bunnies, a hyper chocolate lab and a Great Dane puppy that cries like baby when left alone. I like to think of it as living the BAMAFORNIA life.
FUN FACTS: I possess an impressive yet accidental dust bunny collection. I have a serious wine, Bama football & book addiction. My grammar skills are atrocious & no, the irony isn't lost on me. I've made up more words than a certain President. I've worked in fast-food, not so fast food, a lab, a print shop, a club dj booth, dental assistant, a muffler shop, an aviator store, the military, quilting, and just about everything in between. Plus, I've thrown live grenades & survived the tear gas chamber. (Have to add that because it makes me sound badass.)
