Author: Talia Hibbert
Format: eBook purchased from Amazon
Enjoy another Dirty British Romance by Talia Hibbert, author of Bad for the Boss. Christmas just got sexy…
“There’s a beast inside of me. I keep it caged. You drive it wild.”
Cash Evans has come a long way since his troubled childhood, but all the wealth he’s earned as a tattoo artist can’t fix the hole in his heart. He knows that the sweet barista who haunts his dreams is off-limits… But life doesn’t always go to plan.
”There isn’t a man on earth who could ruin me.”
Bailey Cooper is determined to learn from her mother’s mistakes. She’s seen how cruel love can be, and she’s not about to sacrifice her self-respect for a relationship. But when a bad boy with a heart of gold comes to her rescue, she finds herself wondering if this beast might just be her Prince Charming.
Will these two lost souls find a happy ending under the tree this Christmas?
Or is their love doomed to wither with the mistletoe?
Merry Inkmas is a steamy Christmas romance starring a brooding, bad boy hero and a Black, BBW heroine. Be warned: this love is hot enough to melt any winter frost!
I usually file Christmas romances into the cheesy category, but this one proved me wrong.
This is just one of the many benefits of joining a book club.
Merry Inkmas was the December pick for the Dragons and Tea Book Club over on Goodreads, hosted by Meltotheany and Amy at A Court of Crowns and Quills.
I never would have read this book if it wasn’t for this book club, and I definitely would’ve been missing out for sure.
I officially love Talia Hibbert. This had all the elements that I love in a tattoo parlor romance, with a touch of holiday spirit.
This book sucked me in immediately. I adored the immediate chemistry between Bailey and Cash… along with just the characters themselves.
Bailey was such a good person and fun, confident woman that I absolutely admired. She had such a big heart.
And Cash was the tattooed, somewhat grumpy, Mr. Darcy-esque character that we all know and love. His character may have been my favorite part of this novel. He had alpha traits without being obnoxious.
And the romance between these two characters was so on point. Particularly the scenes in which family was involved.
I read this book on Kindle Unlimited for those who subscribe!
