"First Ink" by Laura Wright


SERIES: Wicked Ink Chronicles #1
GENRE: NA Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Freebie
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

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.


I wanted to try a contemporary romance for a change and Laura Wright's "First Ink" came my way. A free read (with a very catchy cover!) from an author I truly love? Why, yes, thank you very much! And what a pleasant choice it was, indeed.

Told from both main characters' point of view, this novella was enthralling and boy how steamy! With amazing flirting dialogues and perfect chemistry between the characters, this book is just a further proof of what a big talent Laura Wright has. I was completely charmed by Rush and Addison, I connected with them and, as usually happens in each of this author's books, I felt like they were anything but fictional. Their emotions were my very own and the whole read was fast and amazingly HOT.

Suddenly, I feel like I should get a tattoo... If only I could get Rush's number, sigh... Oh well, at least I can easily get the next instalment and that is SO going to happen!

RATING: 4.5/5

    My review is coming soon, and I totally LOVED it!!! I'm not into contemporary romances that much, and you know that, but this, steamy and, tbh, I'd yet to read about tattooists, so that's a plus! If you manage to get Rush's number, don't forget to share it with me!!! :)

    As for Rush's number, I'd probably forget my own name for a while, so don't take it personally if I forget to share his number, LOL
