After leaving high school, with a hard won diploma and the title of most likely to break hearts, Alexander “Nix” Pierce has left his wild, out of control years mostly behind him. A small inheritance from his grandfather has given him the funds to open up his tattoo shop, Freefall, and he has started to pull his life together. Aside from trying to keep his best friend, Dray, from killing himself in the fight ring, and his slight obsession with a pin-up model he’s never met, Nix’s life is going smoothly . . . until Scotlyn James, the object of his obsession, walks into his shop.
Ever since a tragic accident killed her family and left her alone in the world, Scotlyn James hasn’t spoken one word. Up until now she didn’t care that she had no way of talking to people. Her awful aunt would never have listened, and Lincoln Hammond the arrogant, selfish man who pulled her from the streets of Los Angeles wouldn’t hear her words if she could speak. But when Lincoln insists she get a tattoo to cover up a scar on her side, Scotlyn meets the artist, Nix Pierce. And now she longs for her voice. Now she has found someone who will hear her.
I’m surprised you made it down to the review and aren’t stuck staring at the book cover…so hot, right?! Well, the book is just as good!
I loved the premise of this book! Nix is obsessed with a girl and carries her picture around, yet has never met her. Scotlyn hasn’t spoken his a word since the accident that killed her family, and now she’s in too deep with a controlling asshole. They meet when Lincoln, Scotlyn’s boyfriend, decides she needs a tattoo to cover up a scar. She walks in the door or Nix’s tattoo shop and *fireworks*…well, at least for Nix!! Scotlyn takes a awhile to warm up to Nix, but she very quickly passes “warm” and is “hot” for Nix in the blink of an eye! To bad she’s with Mr. Controlling Asshole Lincoln.
Nix and Scotlyn are super cute together. It was really interesting and unique for one of the characters to be mute, it changed up the story some. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more from this series!
