Colin Spencer is a tattoo artist with a past he’d prefer to keep a secret. Actually, he has a few secrets that he’d rather people didn’t know about, which is why Colin doesn’t do commitment. But when a shy sailor approaches him at the gym, Colin finds this guy pushing all his buttons.
Growing up in a conservative family, then escaping with the Navy, Daniel Moore is an unsure virgin who feels like he can’t share his true self with anyone. Seeing Colin—and his tattoos—at the gym are the sign Daniel needs to finally get those tattoos he’s always wanted, and maybe try his hand at flirting.
As Colin and Daniel spend more time together, their awkward hesitations turn into a deep passion neither expected. But with both men harboring secrets, will their relationship be able to survive their insecurities and become something beautiful?
Back Piece is a sexy, emotional journey of two people learning to love and finding acceptance for who they really are.
Back Piece (Skin Deep Inc. #1) by L.A. Witt
I have read several books by this author and though this book was good, it didn’t wow me. I think one of the reasons it didn’t was because is a bit too long for my liking.
Colin and Daniel meet at the gym. When Daniel finds out Colin is a tattoo artist, he goes to the shop to have one done.
These two are quite the opposite of one another.
Daniel is a 26 closeted virgin and Colin is a former porn star. Both are struggling with different things in life. For Colin, one of those things is an eating disorder, for Daniel, it’s his homophobic parents, who don’t know he’s gay. Daniel is very ready to give his virginity up…
…and Colin is more than happy to help him.
There are a lot of steamy scenes in this book…dare I say maybe too much. Don’t get me wrong…I really think these two were hot together, but I started skimming a bit.
I liked that they went from friends with benefits to lovers….they really did get to know each other well.There is a lot tattooing going on and since I have worked at a tattoo shop myself many years…
I really liked these parts.
What I didn’t like though was the ending….or lack of.
I enjoy a good epilogue and I really could have done with one here.
The end felt very abrupt with me.
