Emmie Elliot walked back into her hometown determined to sell her grandmother’s bookstore, but she could not take that step. She decided to keep the store open and was going to take on a tenant, which was when she would be meet Miles Oxford “Ox”, who was a tattoo artist in need of space to rent. They made the rules to keep everything platonic right before they opened but those rules were meant to be broken.
Ink: A Love Story on 7th and Main is the first book to the book 7th and Main by Elizabeth Hunter. I was recently recommend to read this book and I am glad I did, I loved this book. It was right up my alley. I am a lover of books and have a tattoo, in fact it is a book tattoo. I loved the concept of a bookstore with a tattoo artist. By the way I really love the cover of the book.
Emmie was a great character. She seemed buttoned up, but she had a many layers and you were at times cheering for her to not give up. The attraction between them was steamy and pretty perfect. Now Ox was a pretty fantastic character although he could be dense when it came to doing the right thing with Emmie and it was those little thing which kept them from getting truly close right away.
I am looking forward to reading Hooked which is the second book to the series.
Mason Kincaid was ready for a hookup in Las Vegas but that will be stopped when he finds his best friend dancing on a bar. Mason will take Katerina away from the bar and before he could stop himself he will make his move. The move will change everything between them and will have Mason thinking of his future.
Katerina Sands has loved her best friend since she had met him. She never thought it would come of anything but with a one night stand everything changes. Katerina knows she had to distance herself but will be surprised when Mason doesn’t allow it.
Dirty Sexy Inked is the second book to the Dirty Sexy series by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. I really enjoyed this book, possibly more than the first book, but to be fair the brothers are all very different with their personalities. What pulled me into the story was without a doubt the characters of Mason and Katerina.
Mason’s character was what you would considered a manwhore and he was very good at it. He was also crude and did whatever the hell he wanted. I liked when as the reader you got to read his thoughts, without those thoughts I don’t know if I would really love Mason. Because of those parts I wanted Mason to find that love he was afraid to reach for. I wanted him to be courageous and declare himself to Katerina. Mason will have you swooning when he steps up. Now Katerina’s character had my heart breaking for what had happened to her years ago. Mason and Katerina were very similar with a crappy childhood. I liked that Katerina moved on with her life and was making the best of the situation. What I didn’t like was she was sitting on the sideline and getting her heart broken every time that Mason was with another woman. I wanted her to tell him how she felt.
I am getting addicted to this series and will be reading the third book next.
