Review: Ink Spots (Simple Needs #3) by Lissa Matthews
By night, Mandi is a waitress in her best friend's adult entertainment club, complete with long raven hair and bright blue eyes. By day, she's a boutique jewelry maker with a flair for the occasional naughty design. She's shy, quiet, a definitive Plain Jane-and completely in lust with the one man who wouldn't ever be interested in her. He's big, menacing, and inspires every one of her dirty girl desires. If birthday wishes came true, he would be hers.Tattoo artist. Business owner. Lover of vintage cars. Drummer. Jaz is far from the average guy. Built like a brick wall and inked from head to toe, he can scare the faint of heart with just a look, but faint of heart isn't what interests him, isn't what fuels his fantasies and keeps him hard from dawn to dusk. It's her-the waitress, his sister's friend, the birthday girl.Mandi is given the best present ever-Jaz. And she's got one night to make every wicked thought and erotic dream she's had about him come true.
I read a review about this book and it's not really a long story . It's a short of 90 pages. So I figures after a weekend of studying I deserve a treat. What better than a big, menacing tattooed hunk.
I like that the story is to the point. From the first chapter we meet the main characters. Jaz arrives at the club. Everything about surprising Mandi is set. He walks straight to her dressing room. After a weird ,revealing moment (For me) Mandi's suppose to be raven haired ,bright blue eyed chick right. But she's not. She has green eyes. and when Jaz accidentally pulls some of her fake hair out. I was worried. But it all works out.
This book was a fun and a quick read. Like I said it's a short. It has a lot of sex. somebody getting inked. more sex. pancakes. sex. public display of nakedness (* shy, quiet, my ass).
Also a bit contradicting:
Built like a brick wall and inked from head to toe, he can scare the faint of heart with just a look
Mandi's first reaction when seeing Jaz for the first time is lust and Mandi's own words to Jaz:
“You make me wetter than any man I’ve ever known.”
Now if that's what they mean by being "scared". Then I wanna be scared too, Jaz can be my boogeyman anytime.
