Blurb: When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle…and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. After a string of failed relationships and a bruised heart Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist. He’s the perfect candidate for a mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one-night stand.
Reid left his life in Chicago far behind him and hasn’t been back, but he’s never been able to escape the guilt he feels about his own painful role in inviting a monster into his baby sister’s life. A monster who almost destroyed her. Being with Lia is an unexpected gift, one he doesn’t feel he deserves, and their one night together has him wanting more than he should. When he surprises her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, in Miami, he’s in for a shock—and a fist to the face—when his past and present collide.
With secrets coming to the surface, Reid and Lia are thrown into a world of betrayal and lies that threatens to pull them under, and the last link to his former life may be the darkest of them all.
Review: The hot chemistry, Miami’s vibrant energy, and a great cast of characters make this fourth story in Scarlett Cole’s Second Circle Tattoos a fast and exciting read. I’ve read the previous books in the series so it was easy for me to keep up… But there were still surprises aplenty. Don’t hesitate to read it even if you haven’t read the previous books–the story is worth it. But go back and read the others because they’re awesome.
Tattooist Lia Carlisle was on her way home to Orlando for a speaking gig when her car broke down on the side of the road. Lucky for her, the hot motorcycle rider who was passing by stopped, turned around, and came back to help. Even better, he knew about cars. Plus, he was totally one night stand material, right? Hot and available, a bad boy dream come to life. And she could use some relief since her father was considering running for governor, which would not be fun for her or her mother.
Reid Kennedy was intrigued when he saw see the gorgeous woman on the side of the road. Her car hood was up and she was stranded–and she was stunning. Since he was a mechanic, helping her was second nature. And when she started flirting back with him, it got even better. They really hit it off, so when he checked her car and realized it would take longer than she had to fix it, he offered to drive her to Orlando for the conference. Why not?
Fate had a lot for these two to discover and not all of them were good. Can Reid restore Lia’s faith in relationships, and can Lia be the family Reid needs?
