Blurb : When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle…and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. After a string of failed relationships and a bruised heart, Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist and the perfect candidate for mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one night stand.Reid left his life in Chicago far behind him and hasn’t been back, but he’s never been able to escape the guilt he feels about his own painful role in inviting a monster into his baby sister’s life. A monster who almost destroyed her. Being with Lia is an unexpected gift, one he doesn’t feel he deserves, and their one night together has him wanting more than he should. Especially since she doesn’t know the truth about his past. However, when he finds Lia’s bracelet in his bed, he has the perfect excuse to drive down and surprise her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, in Miami. He’s in for an even bigger shock – and a fist to the face – when his past and present collide in the humid Miami weather when he runs into the last person he’d ever expect to see in a tattoo studio: Harper, the sister he betrayed, and the last link to his former life.
With “The Darkest Link” the 4th book of Scarlett Coles is thrown into the “Second Circle Tattoos” series.
And with Reid finally getting his story it feels like the series has come to a full circle (pun intended)
We have been waiting (or at least I did) for Reid’s story for what feels a really long time and it feels deserved.
I feel the story around Second circle has developed a lot from a solid romance into something more. With a little suspense added, some bad guys and the usual set of not so likeable parents.
While we meet all the couples from the previous books again as secondary characters it is really Lia that steels the show with her style alone. She is described so vividly that the reader cannot help but see her come alive during reading.
I think from all the female characters described in this series, she is the one that will remain in the readers mind when thinking of this series.
I am kind of sad to think this book will bring the conclusion to the series but on the other hand I am satisfied with the circle …
