Bella Ink is raw, real, sexy, and uplifting. L.C. Dean weaved a heart wrenching tale that made me wonder if there was going to be a happily-ever-after. In the end she hit me with an ending that still has the wheels in my mind-a-turning. That’s the best kind! Like the tattoo artist, Bella “Ink”, L.C’s a master at her craft. I could feel the emotions and envision the surroundings. Her characters were real people with interesting lives. Bella in particular had a past that would break most folks. I could go deeper, but I don’t want to give away too much.
Bella was the kind of woman I love! Strong despite the trails and tribulation in life, she was in total control of the road she traveled. Her own boss, she drives from place to place in an RV to set up shop. I get character envy just thinking about it. The open road, tattoos, and life on your own terms. What more could a girl want?
I can answer that, Jet Ryan. The sexy, sensitive, cowboy accepts her scars, baggage, and all. It’s why I adored him so much. It’s such a rare thing in this day and age, I found it truly endearing. The fact that he’s smoking hot, rugged, and owns a ranch with a large spread you could forget about the world on doesn’t hurt either. * winks*

Can you think of a hotter combination than Madame Eve and motorcycles? Bella Ink is just that as part of L.C. Dean's Sturgis Rally Riders series. Madame Eve and her 1 Night Stand service are brought into the picture in this charming novella that is a follow up to #4 Beautiful Ink. You can read Bella Ink as a stand alone as the back story is well explained.
Jet, south Dakota rancher and motorcycle enthusiast can't get Bella (Ink) out of his mind after an all to brief one night stand months ago at the Sturgis Rally. When Jet fills out his application with Madame Eve he hopes to connect with Bella again and convince her they should have more than 1 night.
Ink doesn't remember the face or even the name of the one man that made her feel safe when she slept with him in Sturgis after to many days working on tattoos and living on energy drinks. On a whim hoping to find that feeling again she fills out an application for Madame Eve.
I find motorcycles and the men who ride them extremely hot, so this was a great fit for me. I am also the proud possessor of 3 very personal pieces of body art (I have 3 tat's) and I like to assume I have an artistic streak in me so I was able to love Bella for all her quirks. As with all the 1 Night Stand series Bella Ink is a novella so it is something you can read in an afternoon and escape to the wilds of South Dakota on that Harley V-twin in your mind.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
