Candace Andrews has had enough of pleasing others. In an act of birthday rebellion, she sets out to please herself—by walking into the tattoo parlor owned by her cousin’s ex-boyfriend. All she wants is a little ink, and Brian’s just the guy to give it to her.
As soon as she submits to his masterful hands, though, the forbidden attraction she’s always felt for him resurfaces…and she realizes the devilishly sexy artist could give her so much more.
Sweet, innocent Candace is the last person Brian expected to see again. She’s everything he’s not, and her family despises him. He doesn’t need the hassle, but he needs her, and this time no one is taking her away. Not even those who threaten to make his life a living hell.
Backed into a corner, Candace faces the worst kind of choice. Cave in to those who think Brian is a living nightmare…or hold her ground and risk it all for the one man who rocks her world.
Warning: This book contains explicit sex, naughty language, tattoos aplenty, family drama, a hot rock concert…and a bad boy hero who’s pierced in all the right places.
Let me just start this out by saying Brian Ross is a sexy mofo!! He’s every good girl’s wet dream. He’s tattooed, pierced, a hard rock fan, and cusses like a sailor. Everything about him is the epitome of the man I wanted in high school. I think a lot of women will feel the exact same way.
He’s wanted Candace Andrews for a long time. She’s been his ‘sunshine’ since he dated her cousin, Michelle. When she goes into his tattoo parlor and asks him to give her a tattoo for her birthday, it gives them a chance to reconnect.
After he gives her the tattoo, he forks over his number in case she has questions about her ‘aftercare’. They hem and haw around each other for a little bit, but when they finally connect with one another – damn is it hot!! She’s a curious virgin and he’s an experienced man with a certain piercing that will have you using your googlefoo for pictures. (Try not to do it around other people…the pictures are pretty hot!)
These two immediately know that they care deeply for one another, but outside forces attempt to pull them apart. Including their own fear of loving each other.
What transpires is a great love story. Including a hot scene that will have you wishing you had a boyfriend/husband to take you to a hard rock concert. Trust me on this!
This is the classic good girl/bad boy love story that everyone loves. Brian is really his own worst enemy, but you want so badly for him to succeed that you just can’t help but love him. Candace is so scared to upset the people around her, she almost loses the one thing she’s always wanted. In the middle, you have these amazing glimpses into the lives of these two characters and it leaves you wanting more.
The cast of supporting characters is amazing as well. The tattoo parlor, Dermamania has some of the most colorful characters that I’ve ever read. Ghost especially. Candace’s friends are also very colorful in their own ways.
From what I understand, there will be another book in this series & I truly can’t wait! Please do yourself a favor – go download this book and then spend the night reading it. You won’t be sorry!
