About the book:
A few years ago, Brax traded in his suit and law degree for part ownership in his best friend's tattoo parlor, Love and Tattoos. He hasn't looked back. Inked from head to toe, full of business smarts, and an affinity for classical music and hard sex, he’s got life right where he wants it. 

Until the woman he can’t stop craving comes home. She's full of luscious curves, looks a little unsure of herself, and has taken to acting a little odd around him. Brax can't help but wonder why. 

The corporate advertising firm in Philadelphia that Annie buttoned up her carefree personality for has laid her off. Now, back in North Carolina, she’s trying to find her sparks again. Her career is changing direction, her sex life is nearly dead, and the one thing worth having in the midst of it all is supposedly off limits. 

Brax’s cockiness and Annie’s own desire to for the tattoo artist, dares her to believe he might know her better than she thinks he does. And when he promises that he can help her find what’s missing in her life, she agrees to his little after-hours game. 

The challenge he lays out comes with a few strings, the suggestion of stripping, confessions, and the temptation of ink. But, they've never been that close, so how could she possibly lose?

It's no secret that I love curvy heroines and that I love this author and I'm happy to say that this story did not disappoint! Brax is one of those amazing heroes who is earthy without crossing the line into vulgar and offensive. I love that he is an intelligent man with ink and that he is so sensitive and insightful even when he isn't one-hundred percent accurate. Annie was so easy to relate to and I don't just mean the fact that she's a plus-sized gal, a lot of artistic people end up taking the corporate route after all sometimes we do what we have to. The chemistry between these two was absolutely explosive and the fact that they have such a history made it all the more special. I'd love to see Annie's brother get his very own adventure because I always look forward to reading this author's next story!
