A tattoo gets them in trouble… He will get them out.

After years of cultivating an undercover identity, Brody West is finally off the case and free to live a life of his own. All that time spent in the company of criminals and killers left him a little jaded… and with an identity crisis. He isn’t sure who he is anymore, or who he wants to be.

To give him time to think, he takes a few days off to go fishing. On his way out of town, he makes a routine stop at the bank and finds himself flirting with the girl behind the counter. 

But his flirtation is cut short when criminals burst into the bank and shoot her right before his eyes. 

In attempt to administer first aid, Brody reveals a tattoo on his upper arm. A mark that will drag him and the girl into the kind of situation he was trying to get away from. But he can’t walk away because he’s the only thing capable of keeping Taylor alive and bringing down the guys who shot her—guys who are seriously dangerous.

Fun, Exciting Read with a Sweet Romance! 

The Review: 
This was my first book by this author but I can honestly say it won't be my last. Tattoo is the seventh novel in the stand alone Take It Off series and was just a joy to read.

Taylor is working her way up the food chain in her father's bank and this day, she’s a teller. When she comes face to face with the incredibly handsome Body West who just stepped up to her counter, she’s immediately taken with his good looks and his charm but she quickly recovers her wits and gets down to business. 

Then all hell breaks loose!

Brody West walks into a bank to withdraw some cash for a fishing trip, heading out of town for vacation after two years on assignment. While flirting with the incredibly sexy teller, the bank gets held up and suddenly he’s in the middle of another life and death situation. Yes, I said another. Because as it turns out, there’s way more to Brody than great looks and a penchant for flirting. 

This book starts out quick and just keeps right on going with severe situations, life-threatening moments and enough action and hair-raising moments to keep you reading. Though there wasn’t a lot of character development, I enjoyed Taylor and Brody. Taylor was tough and fierce when it came to protecting herself and Brody. And Brody was just a fantastic alpha-male who found he wanted more than a one night stand.

Though these two had chemistry, I found myself wanting more steam and more “getting to know you” moments between this couple. It was kind of an insta-love scenario and given their introduction and following scenes were so touch and go, it kind of reminded me of the the movie Speed where Sandra Bullock’s character, Annie, says, “...relationships that start under intense circumstances, they never last.”

But I can say, these two were super sweet together. 

And... I LOVED reading about my area. Some of the places in this book, I’ve been to many times. Its always fun when you can connect to locations from a book!

The Wrap Up: 
I enjoyed this quick, fast paced read. And I’m definitely going to read other books in this series.

Buy the Book!
