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, beforeand 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.Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content and graphic language.
More than Meets the Ink by Elle Aycart was one of the best stories I’ve read all summer. I enjoyed the opening of the story and how it eased me into the Heroine’s crazy life. Tate made me laugh. Her Mom and James’ dad and the cats brought a smile to my lips, and two grownups trying harder than hell to find some private time. The smile, that took a good portion of the book to fade. It was in that second part that the layers of how Tate ended up taking over the family business that showed me the deeper depths of the heroine and how she functioned on autopilot. I empathized with Tate and with James and hoped she’d take the offered olive branch.
James really made an impression on me. Underneath the sexy exterior lay a perfect gentleman. After the passion when Tate was in need of a strong shoulder he stepped to the plate unbidden and offered his help. His intelligence and giving nature proved not to judge a man on his appearance.
