Series: Wicked Ink Chronicles #1
Author: Laura Wright
Women in his bed, celebs and rockers in his chair and a killer bank account at his disposal, life is pretty freaking swell. Then she walks back into it again. With her mismatched eyes, perfect pink mouth and a laugh that still haunts him, she gave him nothing but marvelous misery. Now she wants his hands on her again. Not for pleasure, but for pain. For Ink. A bleeding heart to match the one she left him with five years ago.
She can’t forget him. No matter how hard she’s tried. The pain she caused him in the past eats at her daily, and she can’t move on with her life. But she has a plan, a hope for redemption – a way for him to take his revenge out on her flesh. But it’ll only work if he lets her inside his exclusive world, under his famous artist’s needle and into his bed—and heart-once again.
*First Ink can also be found in the Wicked Firsts Anthology*
When Laura Wright decided to let this ebook go for free, I was ecstatic. I had been meaning to get my hands on it, but I just never got around to doing so. Already a fan of her and her writing style, I knew that I was going to have a good book on my hands. Along with the premise, who could resist this book? Sexy tattoo artist, tattoos, and some … wickedness.
The novella starts in Addison’s point of view at a tattoo convention with her best friend, obviously looking for someone from her past. Rush. Tattooing on a stage in front of a large crowd, he is just as sexy as he was back when they were high school sweethearts … no, he was even sexier with those tattoos. She is there to make amends for something she did in the past, something she did to hurt him. And he doesn’t want to see her.
In a flurry of events, she ends up in his chair, under his needle, and under his control. She didn’t go there wanting a tattoo, but it quickly becomes clear that it’s the only way she is going to get to spend any time with him.
Rush is flabbergasted when Addison ends up in his chair. After years of avoiding her calls and rejecting her tattoo appointments, he has no way to run away from her. So he agrees to put some ink on her – ink she won’t get to see until he is completely done. He doesn’t want to hear her apology or excuses, but he has no choice.
Things quickly change back to the way they were back before things went sour. White-hot scenes ensue – in true, Laura Wright fashion. It’s a hot, emotional, drop dead sexy mix that makes for a wonderful reading experience for anyone reading this book. She is a fantastic writer. I would suggest this to anyone who likes tattooed men, white-hot chemistry, and a stormy romance.
