|Between Breaths #5|
"Tattoo artist Cory Easton has worked long enough at Raw Ink to know, just by looking at a dude, what his body art reveals, what makes him tick, what even makes him scared. Until he meets the quiet and remote Jude York—so unreadable, so unreachable, and so unlike anyone else, he can’t help but arouse Cory’s curiosity.
As captivating and complex as his ink, Jude is a mystery—and Cory’s falling fast and hard under his spell. Against his better judgment to steer clear.
The rumors of Jude’s past overshadow him—whispers of prison and an unmentionable secret that’s kept him in the protective shadows of a local motorcycle club. As Cory probes deeper, he wonders how much he really wants to know. Especially since Jude has awakened something inside him that has been buried too long—and has him feeling completely alive for the first time in forever…"
I Received this book from NetGalley for review.
What I like most about companion series, is that you don't have to read them in order. I didn't know this was the final book in a companion series when I requested it, but when I realized it was, I was glad that I wasn't lost. I know there are certain subject matters that some people aren't comfortable reading about, so for those people this is a M/M romance story.
I really enjoyed this book, it was written very well, and I found the characters really interesting and I was cared about what they were going through. I was just as curious about Jude as Cory was, I wanted to know him, and his secrets.
Cory was often a very entertaining character, the way he always ended up putting his foot in his mouth when he was around Jude was adorable, and made me smile. I really like when New Adult contemporary romance authors make their characters complex, that they don't make the story all about how much time they spend in bed. That they are given baggage, the kind that real people would have.
This book is New Adult, so it's not recommended for people under at least 17, or those that don't like to read descriptive intimate scenes.
This book is out on April 21st.
