I like my books like my coffee : Hot and Dark.

A free copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

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.


There were far too many coincidences happening in this story, some situations are unbelievable and illogical . Also to much drama : Lia getting blackmailed by her father, Reid reconnecting with his sister , Harper's mood swings and so on. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy a good  written drama but this story was not the case.
Moving on to the characters . 
Lia - bold, strong, a colorful character, with all her tattoos and pin up girl attitude....but that was about it. Looks and nothing more. Her character was too flat for me and her reactions abnormal. She agrees too easily with anything and anything  related to Reid. No questions asked.
Reid was no better. I honestly had no connection with either of them .

I'm not saying it's a bad book, it just didn't work out for me, too soapy for my taste. It was like watching one of those Spanish telenovelas.
