tl;dr recommendation: Are you ready to get Conned?! This book has plenty to buzz about: it’s easily relatable, contains a growly and sexy alpha man with a heart of gold and a backboned woman with a penchant for saying what’s on her mind. 4.5 stars!
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?
Are you ready to get Conned?! This book has plenty to buzz about: it’s easily relatable, contains a growly and sexy alpha man with a heart of gold and a backboned woman with a penchant for saying what’s on her mind. I love that Meghan makes me think one thing will happen and then flips it entirely on its head. Predictably is not her specialty and I couldn’t love her more for it.
Con and Vanessa share a crazy history and an even more complicated present. The reasons they can’t be together are a mile long, while the reasons they want to be together can be explained only with feelings. It’s a star crossed lovers story at its finest.
While I obviously loved this book, I didn’t connect to Vanessa as much as I wanted – even though we had a shit ton in common – and I felt that I was missing certain details of their “one night” together as well as their history from high school. Those little details were important to me as a reader and I wanteddd them. There was also just so so much going on. This one is action packed which was both great and sometimes hard to follow.
Of course, that doesn’t mean the book wasn’t fucking fantastic – because it was. Sex, muscles and ink never looked so delicious. Con is a man who will make you jump without thought and who will melt your core with his dirty words while Vanessa will knee you in the balls if you speak to her the wrong way (that’s my girl!)
While Con and Vanessa attempt to navigate their social circles, my heart had no problem finsing direcrions to open for them. Beneath this Ink will take you on a wild ride – it’s best if you just put you head against Con’s back, wrap your arms around his waist and hold the fuck on.
