Review - Pretty In Ink by Scott Hildreth

Title: Pretty In Ink
Series: Bodies, Ink & Steel #2
Author: Scott Hildreth
Release Date: October 27, 2015

Tattooed bad girl meets eccentric rich man.

Two complete opposites, each refusing to become someone they are not, trudge forward in their respective lives, hoping something will change. And, one day, their two worlds collide.

Stevie is a foul-mouthed tattoo artist who is only attracted to alpha males, bikers, and tattooed bad boys. Frustrated that yet another boyfriend has abused her, she has traveled halfway across the nation to a new city and wonders if she'll ever find a mate.

Today, standing in the rain without a ride, she is having a bad day. 

Wilson is a self-made millionaire. In his life, and throughout earning his hundreds of millions, he has learned money can't buy happiness nor can it buy love. Home-schooled and raised without the comfort of siblings or friends, his lifelong hope of finding someone to suit him has gone unanswered.

Today, he is having the worst of days. He's exhausted and despite all of his riches, he's simply done trying to continue... 

As fate would have it on this dreary day, they meet. Standing before each other, completely opposite in appearance, they can't help but individually wonder how their respective lives may change if they were able to see beyond what is on the surface and accept who the other person really is instead of concentrating on what they appear to be. 

Neither wants anything more than to love and be loved. 

If they can somehow make this work, their lives will be forever changed. 

Pretty In Ink is an erotic romance novel of lust, loss, and eventually, love. This stand-alone novel has the best of HEAs, no cheating, and no sex outside the relationship. Prepare for a modern day Cinderella tale, but due to the graphic nature of the sex, please be over 18 to enjoy this read. This novel is Book II of the Bodies, Ink & Steel series, a series of stand-alone books about the individual lives of the tattoo artists who are employed at "Blurred Lines", a tattoo shop.

Pretty In Ink was fun, flirty, filthy and exactly what I needed for a quick, palate cleansing read! 

Stevie and Wilson are polar opposites. She’s a tattoo artist, covered in ink. He’s prim and proper and wears $400 loafers. He’s the epitome of uptight, she likes bikers, rough and ready, party hardy types. But what if what she’s always wanted isn’t what she needed? 

This is a story of looking beyond the surface. When you look underneath the clothes and the inked skin, you never know what you’ll find. Stevie was stunningly gorgeous. Wilson needed Stevie in his life, even though he may not have known it. And she needed him in her life. 

The chemistry was off the charts. The banter was fun, and the donuts…well, awesome It’s amazing how when you open yourself up and don’t expect anything, the right person may fall into your lap! Just be open to the time and the place. 

There are certain words that were part of Stevie's vocabulary that I just can’t imagine any woman saying but I was able to overlook it, because maybe she’s just a bit more crude than other women. It’s a bit of her charm, but oy, I still can’t imagine it. Wilson’s history could also have been developed a bit more for me. I think I just wanted MORE!! 

Scott’s writing is fun, the editing was good, I didn’t see any major problems; I just wanted to know more about these two!
