Model perfect Jimmy “Trouble” Carver had never heard the word no. Tattooed, sexy and the quintessential bad boy Trouble had men falling over themselves to get to him. What people didn’t know about him was he was self-conscious even if life was easy for him. He’d started out as an apprentice at Twirled World Ink after college and never looked back. Trouble was exactly where he wanted to be, although there was one speed bump, his crush refused to go out on a date.
Brody Vaughn worked in a dead-end job, barely making it from paycheck to paycheck. He didn’t have much time for anyone other than his five-year-old daughter Mina and besides he’d never quite found a place in this world he fit. Chunky and average, that’s how he felt, except for when Trouble came into the grocery store where he worked. The flirty, gorgeous man asked him out every week with a sexy smile, but Brody had to refuse. It wasn’t as if he wanted to say no, it was just how could he date a man Brody knew he had no business trying to keep.
The Crazies of Twirled World Ink excel at one thing, matchmaking, and they are determined their resident bad boy would get his man. They just had to make sure that neither Trouble or Brody screwed up their plan.
Author’s Note: Although this is the second book in a series each book is a standalone and every book deals with a separate couple.
Part of me wants to rate this story (and series) higher. I actually really liked the plot, the characters, and (hallelujah!) the communication between all.
But…it’s poorly edited and proofed, and there were time jumps, which made for an, at times, frustrating read.
If you’re the type of reader who can ignore typos, grammatical errors, wrong punctuation, and misused words then I would not hesitate to recommend this book and series.
Dabney offers a fresh voice, the series (so far) has a likable cast, some hot sexy times, and (my personal favorite) communication between partners.
