Author: Elizabeth Hunter
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publishing date: 13 March 2018
|Emmie Elliot hadn’t expected to come back to Metlin, California. She definitely didn’t expect to stay. She returned to her childhood home with a mission: Sell the building that housed her grandmother’s book store and move on with her life.
But life doesn’t always go according to plan.
To reopen her grandmother’s book shop, Emmie will need a hook. She’ll need a strategy. She’ll need an… Ox?
Miles Oxford doesn’t have much interest in quiet bookstore owners. He’s a tattoo artist without a space to work, and the last thing he wants is to get involved with anyone after his last disaster of a relationship. Work and pleasure don’t mix for Ox, but since he doesn’t have any interest in the cute girl with the bold business proposal, he should be safe from any awkward complications, right?
She sells ink. He tattoos it. Unusual? Yes. But a book shop/tattoo studio might be the ticket for both Emmie and Ox to find success on their own terms. As long as they keep their attention focused on business.
Just on business.
It’s no secret that I absolutely love Elizabeth Hunter’s work. Starting on the covers of her books which are always exquisite to the quality of her writing. The perfect editing and the time invested in research all add to the indesputable superiority of this indie author.
I was fortunate enough to receive an early copy of this book and to my shame I read it one sitting, it’s really hard to put it down once you start. At least I only ignored the world around me for one day.
The writing, as I have come to expect from Elizabeth Hunter, was perfect. Properly edited and the story was well paced. The descriptions were nicely written allowing visualization throughout the book without being excessive and boring.
Emmie and Ox are well developed and their growth is visible throughout the story. They create many an emotional moment and I went from silently saying ‘yes’ to wanting to yell ‘no’. The secondary characters are equally as interesting and perfectly inserted in the story.
The story is beautiful and a reflection of life with friends and family with ups and downs and the good and bad.
I Loved INK and would love to see this series continue. So many stories to tell and I would definitely like to keep up with Emmie and Ox who could tell us another story or two.
