Book Release Blast for Wicked Ink by M.A. Lee (REVIEW)…….

 A woman finds herself falling for a bad boy against her better judgment in this romance set in the college world and teeming with sensuality.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Wicked Ink by M.A. Lee, along with getting my impressions of it, then add this second installment in the Royal Ink Tattoo series to your bookshelf too!

From Amazon Bestselling Author, M.A. Lee comes another exciting new college romance novel.Melissa is my biggest challenge yet. With her beauty, brains, and brazen sass, she is the first girl not to fall for my charm.
I want her.
I need her.
I'm getting high just from her presence. I know she will cave one day, I can see it in the way she looks at me and the way her body reacts when I touch her.
With each day that passes, I can feel her giving in. Her resistance is fleeting as she slowly falls for what we could be. What I want us to become.
They say bad boys are easy to love. And, Colton is your ultimate bad boy. It's hard to blame him; with his dark hair, tattoos, striking eyes, and swagger, girls just can't resist him.
I already had my fair share of bad boys and the last thing I wanted to do was to fall for Colton. Knowing that he owns a tattoo parlor and drives a motorcycle should have me running away at lightning speed--but it doesn't.
I fell for him hard and we both know it, but I'm the last person to admit it. Call it stubbornness, but I am not the type of girl that Colton really needs.
Now, Colton refuses to give up his chase and I don't know how much longer I can fight my feelings for him. I can tell he is different, but can I really trust him with my heart?



Fans of stories with sexy, tattooed heroes with loving hearts will be immediately drawn to this tale of opposites attracting.  With Colton a highlight of this story, readers will be drooling over his bad boy looks and determination to get the girl in his instant attraction to her.  Add in his equally drool-worthy friend, Ian, and you'll have bright hopes for the next installment in this series while adding the two of them to your book boyfriend list.

When readers first meet Melissa they see a woman bruised by her past, someone who's locked her fragile heart away as she's not interested in putting it in someone else's keeping ever again.  Melissa's already been betrayed by her longtime ex-boyfriend after finding him in bed with another and it's left her reeling from the betrayal.  Her best friend Lily is a strong support to her though, pushing Melissa to get out there and live and not let her ex's machinations affect her any more.  Lily's plan to go to a tattoo parlor is just the life altering event Melissa needs as she meets the enigmatic Colton, a sexy beast who's very interested in her.  The journey they undertake though is definitely bumpy, teeming with sensuality and angst.  For Colton, he's attracted to Melissa from the very start and doesn't hesitate in letting her know how he feels.  It's not as easy for her though as she has no interest in commitment and it results in a constant push/pull between her and Colton that has you wondering "will they/won't they".  Melissa's definitely down in the dumps at the start of the story, she often left me frustrated as she pulled Colton close one moment while pushing him away the next.  There were times I didn't like her very much, was angry at her for hurting Colton by locking him in the Friend Zone despite his attraction to her being so obvious.  She clearly had a lot of growing up to do and with each turn of the page readers see a woman maturing through the events life has thrown at her.  Being in Colton's life also has a positive impact on her, relegating her feelings of betrayal to the past as he repeatedly proves himself to her, in a romance that sizzles and that has me falling even harder for him.  Add in Lily and Ian and you have a strong set of secondary characters, hardworking matchmaker, that has me counting down the days until future installments in this series are released!

My rating for this is a B.
