More than meets the Ink

Wickedly sexy James Bowen is a bad boy of the highest order -- tattoos and attitude included -- which unfortunately ranks way up on Tate’s not-a-chance-in-hell list, right there along with skydiving naked over Teheran and juggling Ebola vials just for kicks. But what the heck, she’s on holiday, the guy is absolutely irresistible, and she needs to unplug from her life. With her dad and brother gone, Tate is left to deal with the family restaurant, which is fast going down the drain. Her employees are acting out, her boyfriend has bailed out, and her very own private stalker is emailing her to death with lovely threats of doom, fire, and dismemberment. So yeah, maybe a little holiday fling is in order. Strictly sex though, and no follow-up whatsoever once.

She hadn’t counted on her take-charge holiday fling having an opinion of his own and stubbornly sticking around, before and after the sex, making himself at home in her life. There is definitely more to James than meets her prejudiced eye, and even if she's not ready to look deeper, James isn't prepared to permit her not to.

More than Meets the Ink by Elle Aycart is a serious good read! I just finished it and totally wish there was more to read. It’s on the shorter side but one of the best books I’ve read. I love the leading ladies name, Tate; I have a thing for boy’s names as girls. ;) I absolutely adored this book! I can totally see me picking it back up again to get lost in James dragon tattoo!

So Tate has been having it rough, without revealing too much, basically her family suffered some tragedy which indirectly put her in charge of running her families restaurant. Taking a break from her job in Boston, she goes to visit her mom in Florida and meets James. Here’s the thing, like most books involving guys with tattoos, they automatically get the stigma of being the bad boy. Well Tate’s sister Elle has always dated “bad” boys covered in tattoos, so Tate stays away from any guy who fits that persona. Well that is until James. Convinced she can settle for a “vacation fling”, James can’t keep his hands off Tate. James finds himself wanting more, Tate still trying to convince herself that it was just about sex and returns back to her life in Boston. A life that’s filled with employees who have attitudes, a raging stalker who threatens through emails, and mounds of stress of running a business that’s high in debt, something in Tate’s life has got to give.  

James returns to Boston still hung up on Tate and isn’t having it… the question is does Tate give in? You’re going have to read that for yourself to see how their story unfolds! 


So I totally loved More than Meets the Ink. Tate and James meet at an "elderly community" at their parents homes. Let's just say that that makes "getting it on" a little difficult. Tate has her preconceived notions about guys with Tattoo's. Does James prove her wrong? And what is Tate so afraid of? Does James get into her heart? Read and see.
