Blurb

Ivy Lee, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have finally found it working in her uncle’s tattoo shop in San Francisco. But all that changes when a robbery turns deadly, compelling her to pack up her things yet again.

When they need the best, they call him. That’s why Sebastian Riker is back in California, cleaning up the mess made after a tattoo shop owner with a penchant for blackmail got himself shot. But it’s impossible to get the answers he needs from a dead body, leaving him to look elsewhere. Namely, to the twenty-something-year-old niece who believes this was a random attack. Who needs to keep believing that until Sebastian finds what he’s searching for.

Ivy has one foot out of San Francisco when a chance encounter with a stranger stalls her departure. She’s always been drawn to intense men, so it’s no wonder that she now finds a reason to stay after all, quickly intoxicated by his dark smile, his intimidating strength, and his quiet control.

That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter was no accident—and that their attraction could be her undoing.

Review

In the final book of the series we follow Ivy, who we met in the last book, as she returns home and reconnects with her Uncle Ned. When something horrible happens, she is struck with the fear of running but when she meets Sebastian, she wonders if she finally has somewhere to call home. As the truth of the event comes out, she wonders if she can really trust him at all.
Ivy is all fierceness and independent (reminded me of the confidence that I have seen from Beyoncé) but when she meets Sebastian she becomes self conscious and unsure of herself. I was ok with that part of the relationship but there were times when she was a little out of character because she just blindly trusted Sebastian despite him lying to her for a lot of their relationship.
For his own, Sebastian is really the perfect kind of guy for Ivy. We is the type of person who likes to runaway from the problem that is until he meets Ivy. He likes how she is feisty and independent (much like the rest of us) and she challenged him to rethink his beliefs. I wish we could have seen more about his past but at the same time I don’t. I like that he’s mysterious and how we don’t get to see the whole story of Sebastian.
What I love the most about this series is that while it’s all a series, you can read them as stand alones. It’s not one of those series that you need to read from start to finish to get what’s going on which I like because if there is gaps in between the times I can read the books, I won’t be lost.
As always, the writing is perfect to a tee and the characters are masterfully done. Fez is perhaps my favorite character outside the main characters because he always made me laugh every time he spoke with Ivy. Tucker does something that some authors have a hard time doing and that’s create a world not just a story. We got this with the series and I am leaving very happy that I have read it.

Excerpt

“You’re two hours late!” I holler, rolling the shade up, preparing my best scathing glare for Bobby. It’s not his giant frame I find looming outside, though.

It’s that guy from yesterday.

We simply stare at each other through the grimy glass for a moment: me, in surprise; him, something unreadable, his eyes hidden behind dark sunglasses. He’s swapped his black T-shirt for navy today, to go along with the jeans. Simple, clean, unremarkable. And yet very appealing on him.

“Is it Thursday yet?” There isn’t so much as a hint of a joke in his voice. I can’t tell if he’s serious.

“You’re persistent.”

“Yes.”

“Persistence annoys me.”

Finally, a slight smile touches his lips, and I instantly find myself fighting the urge to match it. He slides his sunglasses off his face, meeting my eyes with that cool, indifferent gaze. “And what doesn’t annoy you?”

“Not much, honestly.”

Another staring match. As intense as the weight of his gaze is, it’s not nearly as uncomfortable as it was yesterday, now that I’m no longer wary of his intentions.

I should be difficult and tell him to come back in a few days. The thing is, I don’t want to be difficult. I want to be very easy for him right now, because I’ve been thinking about him more than is wise since yesterday. Especially since last night. If just a sketched picture and thoughts of him could get me off so quickly and easily, I wonder what the real man could do to me.

Not that I would ever flip my hair or giggle at his jokes or do anything else to make my interest obvious.

I unlock the door and pull it open, stepping back to give him room. “The guy I was supposed to be working on hasn’t shown up, so I guess you’re in luck, because I’m all ready to ink and I need skin to work on.” I let my gaze drift over his arms, honed with muscles and free of any markings, before moving over to his chest and stomach. Wondering if the rest of him is this perfect. Wondering exactly which part of him I’ll get to touch.

“You look more rested today,” he murmurs, a secretive smile touching his eyes. As if he can read my mind, as if he knows that he helped put me to sleep last night.

I don’t answer, pushing the door closed. I lock it once again with a sly smile. As far as I’m concerned, if Bobby shows up now, no one’s here.
