One locked safe, a troublemaking tattoo, and two determined people… add up to unlocked secrets and a love that just won’t stop. Luke “Lucky” O’Conner is a committed bachelor. His motto…“Nobody’s ever getting this Lucky.” So when Kaley Harlow walks into his tattoo shop and somehow leaves with the only record of the numbers to his new safe tattooed on her sexy little hip, Lucky’s motto is threatened. If he wants to see those numbers again, he has to get close. Closer than he’s ever gotten to any woman. And he has three weeks to do it. Kaley Harlow, a happily washed-up former child star, is out to ruin her reputation. She’s through with people looking at her like she’s still that innocent little girl in pigtails. Not to mention, her agent has just signed her up for a movie contract. But, really, all Kaley wants is to start a new life and finally go to college. When Lucky happens into Kaley’s life for the second time, the hot, tattooed badass is exactly what she needs to sabotage her image. But this badass has a secret, one that could ruin more than just Kaley’s reputation.
This is the third book in the Trouble Maker Series and my first one to read from the series and this author.
Lucky is a sexy, "badass" tattoo artist with a sensitive side. He's looking into expanding his business and while locking all the necessary documents he needs to present to the bank in his safe, he hears a commotion outside his office and goes to find out what's going on. Outside he finds former child star Kaley who just had an altercation with one of his employees. He goes to finish her tattoo and that's where the story of him and Kaley begin. If you want to know more you have to read the book, I'm not giving you the plot ;-)
I liked the story and the characters, they were likable and for the most part believable. When it came to Lucky my only complaint was that he was more nice than "badass," that said, it doesn't take away from the story. The POV's are a bit confusing at times at the beginning, but as the story progresses they get more clear and easy to follow.
You won't find a lot of sexy scenes but there is definitely chemistry between the main characters.
It is a cute story and definitely worth the reading.
“Put your hand under your dress,” he said, his thumb still stroking that damn wet beer bottle like it was her clit.
Kaley turned to see if anyone was watching.
“Hey!” Lucky’s stern voice whipped her head back to him. “Look at me. Don’t worry about anyone else. I’ll warn you if someone is coming.” His feet spread her legs farther apart. “Where you’re sitting, I’m the only person who can see you. Now, do as I say, unless you want me to stop.”
His daring eyes held hers, and all discretion slipped out of her grasp. She gave him his answer by dropping her hand beneath the table.
“That’s good,” he rasped, deep and low. “Now place your hand on your thigh and slide up to the top of it. Are you there yet?”
“I want you to grip it hard.”
With her heart racing and wishing his hand was there instead of hers, her fingers dug into her flesh.
His eyes raping her of any reluctance, he bent forward and grunted, “Harder.”
Noting all the hot spots, the tight grip he had on the beer, his biceps and the tattoos bulging from the cut of his sleeves, his mouth that lay slightly open, Kaley squeezed tighter.
“Are you wet?”
“Yes,” she gasped, clinging tighter to her thigh. “I’m so wet.”
His tongue tapped his top lip. “Are you throbbing?”
“God, I’m aching for you,” she said, and she meant it, for she wanted nothing more than his tongue on her.
“Kaley,” he said, swaying closer, tempting her, “tell me, is your pussy mine?”
“Yes,” she breathed out. “It’s all yours.”
“Then touch what is mine.”
