The deepest scars aren’t the ones that show.
Jacob Shain is your average member of Generation Screwed. He has a boring internship, no cash flow, and a tiny NYC apartment he has to share with Ethan, his much-cooler, tattoo-artist twin brother. Not to mention his love life is DOA. At least, until his brother’s shop hires on a new piercer, and Jacob’s humdrum life takes a turn for the weird.
Cody Turner is gorgeous, funny and kind—everything Jacob wants in a boyfriend. Except for the way he refuses to talk about his past, or where he lives, or anything about his personal life.
When Ethan is arrested while on a mission of mercy, the reason Cody is so tight-lipped comes to light. And while Jacob and Cody fight to understand the depth of their feelings for one another, the police dogs catch their scent. So does the local mob.
Now Jacob has to make the hardest choice of his life: stay safe like a good boy, or dive headfirst into a world he barely understands…and hope Cody is there to break his fall.
Jacob’s life is miserable, he is harassed at work because he is gay and his best friend is the bosses daughter and she is dating his brother. So a bully keeps giving him a hard time at work. He spends a lot of his down time at his brother’s tattoo shop.
Cody is the new piercer at the tattoo shop is everything Jacob wants. But Cody is hiding something, he doesn’t talk about his past. He either changes the subject or completely leaves the area. When the guys at the tattoo shop start getting harassed by the cops, and then someone breaks into the shop, Cody is convinced that his past has caught up to him.
When Jacob finds out what is going on with Cody, he convinces him to discuss things with the guys . Says”we are family, not just coworkers” so when they plan to help Cody out of his situation things go crazy.
This book is a good read, it moves a little slow at times but overall an entertaining read.
