Their body art is hot. Their chemistry is even hotter.
From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything.
Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape. Although he has secrets too, if they both keep themselves guarded perhaps their intense physical connection will remain only that.
But nothing, not even passion, can keep them safe from their pasts…
This book… just… This book.
My book bestie told me of this book. (More like she was jumping up and down when she found out it was going to be published.) She and I love the same books so when she told me I would love this book I listened. I always listen when she tells me about a book. I am sure I said it before but she gives good book.
I totally loved this book!
What Tenley is surviving from is just so sad. The same goes for Hayden.
The book starts out with Tenley being very shy and skittish. She tries to avoid any personal connections – friendly or romantic – at all costs. She succeeds for a short time but the people she meets worm their way into her life – in a good way!
Once she starts spending more time with Hayden, her true self comes out. She is no longer shy or skittish, afraid of connecting with people.
She still keeps certain feelings only to herself and understandably so.
Hayden is… imperfectly perfect. He has his past issues that he dealt with in his own way. He is still dealing with them. He has an addictive personality and he is addicted to Tenley from the moment he lays his eyes on her.
If you would like to see who Helena Hunting uses as her Hayden check out this post by my aforementioned book bestie. She also posted a more recent picture of Mr. James on her Facebook page here. (<— That picture is my phone’s lock screen.) I may have also spammed my Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr with pictures of him but I won’t bombard you with links. Just know I have an ongoing obsession.
Thank you Helena for introducing me to Stephen James.
