When Eloise walks into my tattoo parlor, she thinks she knows what she’s after - a piercing to help take her where no man ever has.
But I don’t want to help her the way she thinks.
I had a crush on her all the way through grade school.

The last time I saw her was seventh grade, when my life was falling apart.
Now she has the same cute pony tail as always but the rest of her grown up curves make me crazy just looking at her.

Forget the past, this time I won't let her get away.
Pierced or not, she's mine.

*** A steamy STANDALONE contemporary romance with a sizzling hot alpha. No cliffhanger, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily-ever-after.***

MY REVIEW

Eloise has never had an orgasm. Never. Not even one of the self-induced variety. Bummer. When she comes across a magazine article that almost guarantees her an orgasm if she gets a particular piercing, she finds a way to convince herself to get on board. That's what leads her to walk into Gabe's tattoo parlor. But before he gives her what she came for, he's determined to give her what she's really after - the big O.

This was another sweet and steamy read by Simone Sowood. I really liked Gabe and enjoyed how this story seemed to feed off of his pain. He was real and he was a good person. And while I liked Eloise for the most part, my kind feelings towards her had to be earned because I found her to be judgmental, condescending, close-minded and immature at times. In some instances, she appeared to be repressed and reserved, which conflicted with her thoughts, her friends, and her environment. However, I couldn't get enough of the way she finally opened up for Gabe and it was cool to watch these two navigate through their emerging emotions.
