I’ve always known she was too good for me, but that never stopped me from wanting her. And then I finally had her for one night. A night I don’t remember. I figured I’d blown my shot. But now she’s walked back into my life, and this time, I have the upper hand. I want my second chance. Will she be able to see the man beneath this ink?
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
We met Con and Vanessa in book one, however, you can read Beneath This Ink as a standalone. You don’t need to read book one to fully experience book 2.
Vanessa and Con spent one night together two years ago. However, Con was so drunk he doesn’t remember any details. This gets under his skin because he just knows that it was something special, she is something special.
Vanessa’s night with Con was life changing but since she is a blue blood through and through she feels she can’t be seen with the man from the wrong side of the tracks. That is until she needs a deed from Con and he proposes she gives him a chance to date her. Do to her station she agrees only if it is done in clandestinely.
Maybe because I am not part of this world I didn’t quite understand the entire dynamic going on. Con has money, a lot. He isn’t some broke schlep who has nothing going for him. He may be a “bad boy” with the tattoos and come from the wrong side of the tracks. But I didn’t understand why he was such career suicide for Vanessa. To me, this was more about her manning up and stop letting others dictate the direction of her life.
The story was solid and the mystery behind who killed Con’s parents was one I had no clue about. Which was a definite plus? The sexual tension between Con and Vanessa was palpable, and they explode when they finally came together.
I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook, however, I am not sure how I feel about Sebastian York trying to do accents. He is one of my favorite narrators and that didn’t really work for me. I am giving Beneath This Ink 4 Boundless Stars, I really enjoyed it.
