All things, when placed under pressure, eventually break or leave a mark.
Tattoo artist Brody "Cujo" Matthews knows how to keep things simple. In life and in love. Abandoned as a child by a mother who refused to stick around to raise three boys she didn't want, he's intent on staying clear of complicated women. The only things complicated in Cujo’s life are the killer tattoos he designs and inks. That all changes when he’s asked to help organize his best friend Trent's engagement party, which means working with Trent's fiancée's best friend, Drea, the definition of high maintenance and sizzling curves. And the one woman he doesn’t want to walk away from.
Andrea "Drea" Caron is broke and tired. After years of caring for her ailing mom, she's at the end of her rope trying to manage the piling medical bills, two jobs, and a life placed on hold. She certainly doesn’t need the added frustration of a sexy playboy tattoo artist messing up her best friend’s engagement party or her carefully balanced life. But when Drea witnesses the abduction of a woman from the café she works at, she can’t help but turn to Cujo who’s determined to prove to Drea that he’s someone she can count on forever…but as they attempt to bring the truth to light, someone is working to bring that forever to a sudden, deadly halt.
I received a ARC in exchange for a honest review.
I fell in love with the characters in the first book of this series so i was really excited to get a ARC for this second book. Although it is part of a series it can be read as a stand-alone.
Drea and Cujo start off basically hating each other and always arguing but I loved that about them and the unique spark it created between them. Their chemistry was electric and what they both had to deal with in their separate lives was heartbreaking but made them so much perfect together. I loved their relationship and how even after their rough start they became so close and so together that as a reader it was beautiful to go on their journey with them.
I can't wait for Dred's story next and I'm hoping it's just as hot as this book was.
