22-year-old Beryl doesn’t know why Gavin Slater trashed his penthouse, abandoned his dog and fled the country. But as his house sitter, she must pick up the pieces for the front man of the white-hot rock band Tattoo Thief.
When ultra-responsible Beryl confronts the reckless rock star, she wants to know more than just what to do with his mess. Why is he running? What’s he searching for? And is he responsible for the death of his muse?
New York newbie Beryl must find her footing in Gavin’s crazy world of the ultra-wealthy to discover her own direction and what can bring him back.
Steamy, sassy and tender, Tattoo Thief is a story of breaking from a comfort zone to find a second chance.
I’m a sucker for romance stories, plain and simple. There is just something about them that will bring a smile to my face. You know the ones that I’m talking about, the books you pick up when you’re having a really bad day and you just want something sweet to read. That is the case with Tattoo Thief.
While you would think with the title it wouldn’t be a romance but it is, on many different levels. I completely enjoyed watching the relationship between Beryl and Gavin grow. And I think the one thing that I enjoyed the most about it is they got to know each other FIRST. Their entire relationship was done either on the phone or internet. They had no reason to lie to each other, so they were completely honest.
My only complaint, I guess you could say that I have, is when it came to them meeting in person. How quickly they hooked up. But then again I suppose they are both consenting adults so more power to them!
I enjoyed Gavin’s character because he had a lot of depth to him, more than you would expect from your typical rock star. And I think that that made him stand out a lot from other rock stars.
Beryl’s character, to me it felt like there was more time spent on Gavin’s character than hers. We didn’t’ really get to learn a whole lot about her because there was so much going on with Gavin.
Overall, I did completely enjoy this story and to me it’s another must read if you enjoy romances!
Rockstar + tattooed + sweet on the inside + some sort of emotional issues = a fabulous book
