Riley Campbell is no stranger to loss. After losing her father in a car accident at a young age, she decides to forfeit her relationship with her mother to move in with an older man at the age of 17. Four years later, after ending the relationship with the man for physically abusing her, she feels the need for a celebratory tattoo; her first of what she expects to be many. Her expectations of the parlor, the artist, and the process are pretty weak as she walks in.
Upon entering, she's pleasantly surprised.
Covered in tattoos, handsome, mysterious, and muscular, Blake West is not at all what Riley expected to find, but exactly what she feels she needs.
Blake is the mysterious owner of Blurred Lines, a tattoo parlor that not only has provided him with a steady income, but in the past supplied a steady stream of women into his life. Now, however, things for him are much different. Blake is a recovering sex addict, and professes being faithful. Details of his sordid past, however, are sketchy at best.
As he begins the process of tattooing her for the first time, she feels an almost addiction to the process, the feeling of being tattooed, the ink on her skin, and ultimately, Blake.
As the tattooing of Riley continues, so does her knowledge of Blake. Life-long secrets unveil themselves, and as they do, she realizes not only how much they are alike, but the truth surrounding her father's death.
"Everyone has secrets; revealing them is simply a matter of finding out where to dig."
Blurred Lines is a stand-alone erotic romance and the first book in the Bodies, Ink and Steel series. It has an HEA, no cheating, no sex outside the relationship, and no sharing of partners. The only sex is between the hero and the heroine.
