When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle…and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. After a string of failed relationships and a bruised heart, Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist and the perfect candidate for mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one night stand.
Reid left his life in Chicago far behind him and hasn’t been back, but he’s never been able to escape the guilt he feels about his own painful role in inviting a monster into his baby sister’s life. A monster who almost destroyed her. Being with Lia is an unexpected gift, one he doesn’t feel he deserves, and their one night together has him wanting more than he should. Especially since she doesn’t know the truth about his past. However, when he finds Lia’s bracelet in his bed, he has the perfect excuse to drive down and surprise her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, in Miami. He’s in for an even bigger shock – and a fist to the face – when his past and present collide in the humid Miami weather when he runs into the last person he’d ever expect to see in a tattoo studio: Harper, the sister he betrayed, and the last link to his former life.
Lia works in a tattoo shop and her boss is featured on a popular TV show about the art. Lia loves her mother very much, but her father never saw her as more than a burden to his political aspirations. When her sexy, classic, car breaks down on the side of a back road, she is thrilled when a sexy biker turns around to help her out. Reid can’t leave a pretty lady in distress and offers to tow her car to his shop and feed her dinner. Lia agrees, which is all that happens. For now.
The connection between Lia and Reid is amazingly HOT!! They both have baggage and intense fathers. I love the connection between them and all of the twist and turns along the way! Not only that, but Reid is portrayed as a fit, sexy, hot, biker and Lia is a curvy, independent, pinup looking girl who knows her sexiness and OWNS IT! LOVE that! There are a lot of surprising elements within this story and they all make me want to go back and read the rest of the series! This book was that good!!
Great writing. Wonderfully developed characters. Great twists! There is nothing to not like about this book!
