All things, when placed under pressure, eventually break or leave a mark.Tattoo artist Brody “Cujo” Matthews knows how to keep things simple. In life and in love. Abandoned as a child by a mother who refused to stick around to raise three boys she didn’t want, he’s intent on staying clear of complicated women. The only things complicated in Cujo’s life are the killer tattoos he designs and inks. That all changes when he’s asked to help organize his best friend Trent’s engagement party, which means working with Trent’s fiancée’s best friend, Drea, the definition of high maintenance and sizzling curves. And the one woman he doesn’t want to walk away from.Andrea “Drea” Caron is broke and tired. After years of caring for her ailing mom, she’s at the end of her rope trying to manage the piling medical bills, two jobs, and a life placed on hold. She certainly doesn’t need the added frustration of a sexy playboy tattoo artist messing up her best friend’s engagement party or her carefully balanced life. But when Drea witnesses the abduction of a woman from the café she works at, she can’t help but turn to Cujo who’s determined to prove to Drea that he’s someone she can count on forever…but as they attempt to bring the truth to light, someone is working to bring that forever to a sudden, deadly halt.

Review :

The “Second Circle Tattoos” series by Scarlett Cole is just the kind of series that draws the reader in. With its second Book “The Fractured Heart” the author again managed to make me think the precise same things I thought when I finished the first book “The Strongest Steel” a while ago.

Which would have been
– that I totally did not expect this to be again this good as the first one was
– And that I can hardly wait to get my fingers on the next book from this author. Yes I am aware that I say this frequently and people might think that I do not mean that – but you have to keep in mind that I do NOT read books – I breath them. I devour them. I live them – so I need to be able to say this at list for one review a day otherwise it is like and I may quote another book freely on this “like eating tofu – you are sated but you are never truly satisfied”
The readers will love Cujo I am sure – he really never deserved that name. Drea was a quite complicated character but I could “live” with her as Cujo’s women. There were times when she annoyed me a little but I guess that also came with the way the author wanted the story to be told.
Unfortunate was that I got the twist in this novel a little too easy for my taste. In fact it was almost so easy that I thought I had it wrong. But that was not the case.
Otherwise this novel would have been a 5 star one. As it turned out this is a fat and full 4 star novel which deserves your attention and a follow up by a third one that I can already see at the horizon 🙂
