Colin Spencer is a tattoo artist with a past he’d prefer to keep a secret. Actually, he has a few secrets that he’d rather people didn’t know about, which is why Colin doesn’t do commitment. But when a shy sailor approaches him at the gym, Colin finds this guy pushing all his buttons.
Growing up in a conservative family, then escaping with the Navy, Daniel Moore is an unsure virgin who feels like he can’t share his true self with anyone. Seeing Colin—and his tattoos—at the gym are the sign Daniel needs to finally get those tattoos he’s always wanted, and maybe try his hand at flirting.
As Colin and Daniel spend more time together, their awkward hesitations turn into a deep passion neither expected. But with both men harboring secrets, will their relationship be able to survive their insecurities and become something beautiful?
This is a slow careful romance that really lets you fall in love with both heroes.
Both heroes have a ton of baggage and Witt allows both of them wonderful individual journeys as well as sexy sweet journey as a couple. The blurb gives a number of the details of who they are away but it doesn’t tell just what great real people they are.
This is an angsty read but no one does anything stupid or out of characters and I want so much for them to find the happiness they deserve and they do.
We get lots of couple time and while some might feel the book a bit slow in the middle, I loved the lingering over details and time together.
A great romance!
I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it!
