Summary from Goodreads:

Suzy’s a control freak and has her life mapped out – work hard, find a man with a stable job, and live happily ever after. She’s content with the status quo, but her plan comes to a screeching halt when he enters her life and turns it upside down.

City gave up on love when his heart was crushed in college, preferring to be the typical bachelor. He spends his nights hopping from one bed to another and his days working at his family tattoo shop, Inked. A chance encounter on a dark road makes him question what he had sworn off forever – a relationship.

A night of passion and lust causes them to question everything. Is City the knight in shining armor to the damsel in distress? Can their relationship survive when a fantasy falls apart and a secret comes out that changes everything?

My Thoughts:

I’ve been reading bits and pieces of this story for months… while Chelle rationed those bits and pieces out, I bit my nails, stomped my feet, and did everything short of beg for more!!! This enticing tale will lift your spirits, bring you to your knees, and make you gasp for more air than I fear your lungs can handle! This is a love story, but more importantly, it’s a journey of self discovery, acceptance, and peace. Oh yeah, and some uber hot sex scenes you’ll be re-reading more times than you can count!!! Well, maybe that was just me… lol!!!

I. Am. Hooked! Joey, a.k.a. City was everything I wanted and needed. A perfect alpha male in so many ways. He’s enormous, he’s talented, he’s sexy, he’s got tons of tattoos, and it has to be said, he rides a Harley and this in itself is enough to make my panties burst into flames! I love the fact that he’s one of those “what you see, is what you get” kind of guys. Although he harbors things about himself and his past that only those closest to him know, he’s pretty much still and open book! Unquestionably one of my favorite lead males characters!

Now, Suzy Q, well, she’s so damn cute, you can’t help but love her. She makes such a tremendous renovation within herself that by the end of the book, I almost didn’t recognize her! In a good way! Not that I didn’t love the old Suzy, but the new Suzy, wowza.. I mean, she really changed my perception of love and adoration. Sometimes what we thinks we want is not always what we need and I’m so glad she took a chance on City. Her attempt at swearing had me rolling around on the floor laughing my ass off… I mean, holy hell… “His dong!” – I’m laughing out loud just typing this shit!

Great supporting character cast in all of Joey’s family. Boy oh boy, I’m thinking Italian for dinner tonight. And Chelle, I need those recipes… I know you have ’em!!! Joey’s Momma Mia is, well, she’s perfect. The boss, but also the nurturing, caring voice of reason. Everyone should have a Mom like her! I so can’t wait to find out what happens with Michael. Just thinking about that fighter has me salivating all over my keyboard! Of course seeing how Sophia and Kayden are faring warmed my heart and I was glad to see them living the life they were meant to live.

Even though this was Joey and Suzy’s book and I loved the climax, I still feel there is still more to their story and I’m hoping we’ll see that in the next “Men of Inked” book! There are too many highs and lows to mention, but the pacing is perfect and the dialogue flows quite nicely taking you on a wild ride of love, laughter, and hot steamy sex! It’s 260 (Kindle version) pages long and it was enough to grab me by the short and curlys, slap a helmet on my head, and take me for the wildest ride I’ve been on this year. Chelle, creates the right amount of tension leading to that remarkable climax. I love you Chelle Bliss!! You knocked it out of the park with this one!!
