HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Firstly this is a definite 18 and over read, which tackles a really difficult subject and has very intimate and graphic sexual scenes in it.
The cover of this book is perfect as tattoos are a way of telling someone’s journey in life. Jackson’s tattoos do far more than that, Jackson’s tattoos tell a story of a secret life, you just have to read in between the lines.
From my very first Tracie Podger book I read I have loved each one, as I find myself whisked away and tangled with a story that I don’t want to escape from. They are raunchy with a hunk of a man who rises the temperature in any room, well Jackson has a little bit more, he can be a bit scary to say the least but he has found a way to satisfy his needs, just not in a good way.
When Jackson’s best mate tragically dies he steps up to the mark to watch over the widow he left behind, Summer. She is having to come to terms not just with the death of the only man she has ever loved but also a dark secret that he has kept hidden from her. Now very public knowledge that threatens everything that she has. Two broken people, one of them with dangerous uncontrollable desires.
This is an additional direction for this author’s usual books and wow has she nailed it. This story has the passion that previous novels had but takes trust issues to a whole new level. It really has its hold your breath moments for all the right and wrong reasons. I won’t spoil the story to say what secrets are being hidden just to say this happens so much but such a taboo subject. Jackson is such a strong man for Summer but so fragile inside.
This is as much of a healing journey as it is a love story for both Jackson and Summer. A stand alone novel that made me hold my breath and made my heart skip a beat or two right to the last sentence. A brilliant story.
