Review: The Strongest Steel by Scarlett Cole

The Strongest Steel

Summary small

Harper Connelly never expected to find herself outside of a tattoo parlor at one in the morning, summoning the nerve to take back her past. She’s determined to forget her old life and is looking for an artist who can tattoo over the scars on her back.

Trent Andrews, local legend and owner of the Second Circle tattoo studio, has his own reasons for specializing in inking over scars. And in spite of her mysterious past and the difficult road ahead, he quickly realizes that Harper is funny, smart, and–under her ridiculously oversized clothing and SPF 100 sunscreen–totally hot. He’s happy to take on the challenge of designing a meaningful and deadly full-back tattoo for her.

But when cryptic messages start appearing on Harper’s phone, strange deliveries arrive at her door, and Second Circle is vandalized, Harper is convinced that her ex-boyfriend has tracked her down, and worse, that he knows about Trent. Running was the only thing that saved her last time, but now that she’s started to put down roots in Miami, she’ll have to decide if she can finally fight back instead.

My Review small

I first heard about this book from my book bestie. She told me the summary and I had to get in on that action!

I liked this book from the beginning. I was sad for Harper and what she had been though. Those feelings just intensified as more was revealed throughout the story.

I am glad that these two met. Trent is perfect for her. He wants her from the first moment he sees her and not knowing about her past. Despite his ‘bad boy’ looks, he is a very caring person.

The irony is these two would never have met had the bad thing in her past never happened. Everything happens for a reason but sometimes it takes a while to understand what that reason is.

As I was reading, things happening in the book, reminded me of some of my favorite stories – in a good way!

I would recommend this story to others. (Especially if you like a bad boy tattoo artist like I do!)

Also, book 2 will be about Trent’s coworker, Cujo!
