Review (NA): First Ink by Laura Wright

First Ink (Wicked Ink Chronicles #1)
by Laura Wright
Women in his bed, celebs and rockers in his chair and a killer bank account at his disposal, life is pretty freaking swell. Then she walks back into it again. With her mismatched eyes, perfect pink mouth and a laugh that still haunts him, she gave him nothing but marvelous misery. Now she wants his hands on her again. Not for pleasure, but for pain. For Ink. A bleeding heart to match the one she left him with five years ago.

She can’t forget him. No matter how hard she’s tried. The pain she caused him in the past eats at her daily, and she can’t move on with her life. But she has a plan, a hope for redemption – a way for him to take his revenge out on her flesh. But it’ll only work if he lets her inside his exclusive world, under his famous artist’s needle and into his bed—and heart-once again.

**This is a New Adult book - Intended for 17+

Wow! For a short novella and new adult, First Ink was a steamy colder-shower needed read. The sex scenes were delicious and well written. The sexual tension was off the charts hot with a dirty talking-tattoo hero Rush.
"I could get your jeans around your ankles and fuck your soaking wet pussy with my tongue."
This was a second chance at love novel and refreshing. I do not think I ever read a novel where it was the heroine that damaged the relationship and coming back asking for forgiveness. I loved that and thought that was well played out nicely.  Rush was beyond devastated that she broke his heart but felt he took her back to quickly and need more angst on his part. They had great chemistry and totally connected with them.
Was not a fan of the ending. It is not a cliffhanger but just needed more to it. First Ink was still an enjoyable read. Look forward to see how their story plays out in Shattered Ink (Wicked Ink Chronicles #2). Love the new covers.

  1. This sounds like an interesting read. I'm not usually one for novellas since I feel gypped but I like that this has the heroine as the "bad-guy" who comes back asking for forgiveness. Too bad it's not still a freebie. I will add it to my wishlist and hope it goes free again. Any idea if the entire series is going to be a collection of novellas?

    1. I know what you mean filling gypped by really short novellas. The second in this series is actually shorter than this. So really for their story paying $2.00 when could of done one normal size novella. I read somewhere that this series is supposed to be all short novellas. I really hope not. I really would like like to read the 3rd book with another characters. Have yet to see how long it is.

  2. I really like the sound of this one. Occasionally I have books where the heroine comes to the hero after hurting him, but its very rare and I have only seen it in historical romances, so I definitely would love to see what this author does with this setting. Lovely review hun and hope you are enjoying your week so far.

    1. Oh I enjoyed the reverse roll in this. Having a great week.

  3. Hey, I've got it ! And the new cover is better, I agree. Gotta move this up my list ;)

    1. Yes the new cover are better. I hope you enjoy it.

  4. I've been looking for more books with Tattoo artist...may have to try this one out :)
