Just WoW! I had no idea what to expect, initially just thinking that I simply had missed this author before now because it seems illogical that this is her FIRST NOVEL!
I wasn’t sure that I would like the story until page 4…yes, page 4 and from that point on, I was captured. A strong man, a powerlifter who recognizes something, some level of need and pain in the new tattoo artist brought in to the fold by his older brother. Ollie has secrets, it is easy to see and the story of Ollie finding his way, his level of trust and self-confidence is heart-warming, sweet and spicy at the same time..
Things don’t go smoothly and there is a bit of suspense that you can almost feel is coming. The main characters are both endearing and although very different, seem to fit like a tightly cut puzzle. I think the best part is the secondary characters who are also realistic and engaging. I’m excited about the potential for stories about the other guys, Dagen’s brothers, Niko and Rory. There seems to be so much good reading ahead!
CARRY AND DRAG
Qualifying to compete on a national level is all that’s on powerlifter Dagen Rourke’s mind. After an injury sidelined him the previous year, his only goal has been to overcome the physical challenges and mental demons to get back in the game. Falling into bed with the new artist at his brother’s tattoo shop was never part of his training schedule. Now he has to find a balance between the time he wants to give Ollie and the brutal training for what could be the most important competition of his life.
Run. Tattoo. Doze. Keep going.
Oliver Vos jumps at the chance to work at Vidar Rourke’s award-winning tattoo shop, Open Wounds. Getting out from under a nasty mentor and making it on his own is all Ollie has dreamed of for years. Unbeknownst to him, the room Vidar offers to rent him until he’s back on his feet would have him sharing space with tempting gentle giant, Dagen.
Living together is an adjustment, and when the heat between them morphs into something more will old insecurities and new tests drag them apart?
