Tattooist Chris Zelter doesn' t always make the best decisions when it comes to the people he cares about, or the women he gets involved with. Things have changed recently, though. Chris has lost interest in casual flings as he finds himself wrapped up in Sarah Adamson, a waitress at the local strip club he frequents. It takes months of persistent attention before she finally agrees to date him, and he's determined not to mess it up.

Just as things are finally going his way, Chris receives a troubled phone call in the middle of the night from Hayden Stryker, his best friend and business partner. Unexpected revelations and the sudden departure of his girlfriend, Tenley, has nearly sent Hayden over the edge. Add in a speeding ticket and an impounded car, and Hayden is balanced on the precipice of a total meltdown. Worried about his friend, Chris sets out on a rescue road trip, first to get Hayden, and then to bring back Tenley. The two men run into unforeseen roadblocks, proving even the best intentions don' t guarantee results.

Chris and Hayden return to Chicago empty handed, and Chris is left feeling as if he' s let down all the people who matter, especially Sarah. But Chris discovers that sometimes the best way to deal with failure is to find a way to forget about it. And losing himself in Sarah is the perfect way to do just that.


My thoughts…

At only fifty pages this is a really quick read. While it’s enjoyable, I don’t think it’s a necessary read. This one felt more like a filler. It’s written from Chris’s POV and covers Hayden’s trip to Tenley’s hometown. It also includes a scene that takes the relationship between Chris and Sarah to the next level. They have sex and I don’t think the sexual scene was up to par with the scenes in Clipped Wings, but it was enjoyable to read.

Overall, I expected more out of this one.

  1. Those short ones are so darn hard sometimes. I’m usually left feeling the same. Just expecting a bit more from it. I’ve got the series on my tbr list. Have heard a lot of good things about it. Sorry to hear this one wasn’t quite as good for ya.

    • I loved book one. Seriously one of my favorite reads this year. Can’t wait to see what you think of it. Thanks for stopping by, Anna.

  2. I absolutely love the first two books (book 1 and a novella) I’m really looking forward to Inked Armour tomorrow YAY! I don’t think I’ll be rushing to get this one to 🙁 Or maybe they are that much better on audio.
    Thank you 🙂
