Publisher's Summary

From the boardroom to the bedroom, Antonio DeRose is a man who always gets what he wants. And Antonio wants Evie.

Antonio took a risk when he purchased Bloom Tattoo. The studio is a fixer-upper that could pay off in spades...or cost him Thorn, the family’s studio. He knows the key lies in making Evie Stuart, the tattooed sex kitten, head artist. He can see that beyond her beauty, the fiery girl has some serious brains, too.

Evie, on the other hand, is more than happy to continue being a tattoo artist. She likes being free to follow the wild creativity of her imagination without risking the livelihoods of other artists. Because even though Evie can’t stop thinking about his scorching touch, she has no desire to share a boardroom with him.

While pride brings them together it’s their shared desire that has them entangled. At first, Evie thinks that their head banging sex will keep her career change at bay - but when their shared passion begins to bleed over into the business, can either pull away from their love without losing everything? Or will they finally realize that you really can have it all?

So much Sass!

This is my favorite of the series! I loved Evie and Antonio's relationship. Their chemistry was intense, the banter and humor had me laughing out loud. Although Evie technically worked for Antonio, she had such sass and sparkle and independence. I loved the imagery in this book and could envision so much. The author did a great job painting a picture in my mind. The narrator for this series brought the characters to life and did such a good performance with various emotions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by Leslie North and E.M. Carberry. Another aspect of this book that made Evie so endearing was her willingness to think outside the box. Seeing her gain confidence was also special.

What Defines The Perfect Person As A Partner?

I received a copy for an honest and voluntary review.

Antonio is the oldest DeRose brother. The responsible one who is serious and taken on the responsibility of being sure the family, his brothers, flourish. He is just seem as stiff rigid business man..when in truth he also is artistic but has sacrificed for his family.
Evie is a free spirit who works at the tattoo studio Antonio just bought. She fears having too much responsibility and where Antonio thinks things through before acting..Evie just acts. So do they fit as partners or are they too different.
The story is romantic, sweet, sexy and wonderful seeing the two of th em play off one another.
Love the narrator..he is so perfect for Antonio’s voice and does a fantastic job for females.
Worth purchasing and listening to again and again.

Great story!

This is the third book in the Thorn Tattoo Studio Series. I love this Series and really enjoyed my listening. I love the story of Antonio and Evie. Antonio is handsome and powerful and Evie is exactly the woman for him. I also like to have news about Giovanni/Riley and Luciano/Melanie in this book. The epilogue is perfect to conclude this story and this Series. I like Leslie North's writing because there is no mistake possible, you always get what you expected, or more. She never disappoints. The narration was great and easy to listen. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Great Narration

Evie is satisfied being a tattoo artist but Antonio believes that she can be so much more with his guidance. Antonio is satisfied with the hot sex and with the way things are going. When Evie makes a decision that he does not agree with. he clicks and dumps her. Antonio must decide what is more important, his pride or his woman. Great Narration. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Antonio and Evie

Well this is book three in the series about the DeRose brothers, Antonio has featured in all three books as he is the money man behind Thorn Tattoo. But this book is his story and in this book we get to know the real Antonio.

Feeling bored with his life, having achieved everything he wanted and having got Thorn Tattoo into a much safer financial position than it was Antonio decided to take over another shop but he wanted to attract a softer, different type of client and so he named this shop Bloom.

Evie works at Bloom, she is part of the deal, all the artists get to stay for at least a year. Evie is a very good artist and Antonio thinks she could be Head Artist but meets with resistance from Evie. When Evie does agree things don't go according to his plans.

The attraction between Evie and Antonio is instant but can he as a boss let her know he wants her? Can Evie as an employee let herself explore a relationship with her boss? This is just one of the reasons they start very slowly to develop their relationship. On top of this question Evie has to learn to fill the role of Head Artist but she makes some wrong choices, will they lead to the end of her relationship with Antonio ?

I enjoyed this story, I liked the man I found Antonio to be, I admit there were times during the story that I wanted to slap him and say "open up" but in the end he did and everything worked out.

The writing style was good, easy and sexy at the same time and the chemistry and love scenes were really well done. The narration by E. M. Carbury was excellent and brought great depth to all the characters in the story. All in all this is a fantastic conclusion to a very good series. But if you haven't listened to or read the two earlier books don't worry you could definiately listen to or read this one as a standalone.

I was gifted a copy of this book and am voluntarily writing my review.

The Series Just Keeps Getting Better and Better

I have such a weakness for series that revolve around tattoo shops and Leslie North does not disappoint with the Thorn Tattoo Series. I can not wait for the next installment. Not only is Leslie amazing, I am becoming a huge fan of E.M. Carberry. He has an absolute talent of bringing both male and female characters to life.
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Great Read

Bloom by Leslie North was another great book by the author. This is the third book in the Bloom Series. Antonio is running Bloom Tattoo now after purchasing the studio that is a "fixer upper". Evie is one of the artists at Bloom. I loved reading Antonio and Evie's story.

Excellent, Excellent

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. This story is just as good as the previous stories. Each brother's story is unique. Antonio and Evie's story is hard to put down. And, I couldn't. Loved this story and the narrator did a great job. He captured the characters and their personalities.
