Ten years. Ten endless years I've waited to destroy the man who tore my family apart. But I never thought I 'd get the chance...until his daughter walked into my tattoo parlour, looked me in the eye—and had no damned clue who I was.
I never planned on falling for Cassandra Deighton. She's silk scarves and manicures. I'm scars and rage. Yet I can't resist when she begs for more, my ice queen who burns with enough heat to sear the soul.
I need to end this. Before she finds out who I am. Before she gets hurt.
But I'm not the only one with secrets. We both have our scars, and if the truth comes out, we could lose everything...

Cassy and Cal were perfect together! He poured his pain into his art ~ She into her horses. What an emotional and heartbreaking first in series. The guilt, the lies, the facades... They were from different worlds originally. Both believing the stereotypes. Both hiding their true selves behind false fronts. Cassy's life was a lie. A facade created to appease her father. Under the ice queen exterior, she was an innocent ~ lost and drowning in guilt. She had dreams, she loved wholeheartedly. Cal was fighting each day battling his own demons. Emotional and physical scars ~ reminders of a night that forever changed his future. Cassy was put in a pretty tough position ~ Someone(s) wanted something from her and had no qualms using one of the few things left in her world that held any value as leverage to get it. Cal was still searching for peace. Unable to let go of the past. He wanted payment for the crimes against him. Spencer just made me queasy. Dad... well the man needs to get his priorities straight! Bull and Dane? I want their stories! I enjoyed the dual perspectives. A bit of speculation(?) led to a bit of misdirection. I think that was the point though. We tend to judge first. I hope we get to know about how Spencer's family earned their place or lack of. I know it isn't really important but I am really curious about what his dad did. There are a lot of little things scattered throughout the story line that brought the whole puzzle together. All in all This was one amazing ride
3.75 stars--BEG FOR YOU is the first instalment in Sherilee Gray’s contemporary, adult ROCKTOWN INK erotic romance series focusing on the Calero family who own and operate the tattoo shop Rocktown Ink. This is twenty-nine year old, tattoo artist and owner Joel ‘Cal’ Calero, and art gallery owner Cassandra Deighton’s story line. Told from dual first person perspectives (Cassandra and Cal) BEG FOR YOU follows the enemies to lovers / opposites attract relationship between twenty six-year old art gallery owner Cassandra Deighton, and twenty-nine year old, tattoo artist Joel ‘Cal’ Calero. Ten years earlier Cal’s life was destroyed when an accident left him scarred, and the finger of guilt was pointed in his direction. Losing his family gave Cal thoughts of revenge, revenge he was about to impart using any means necessary. Enter Cassandra Deighton, a beautiful but badly scarred young woman looking to take back control of her life. What ensues is the building relationship between Cal and Cassandra, and the potential fall-out when the truth is revealed. Cassandra had no idea her father was about to lose the family ranch. In an effort to save face, Cassandra is offered as ‘payment’ in return for saving the business and the Deighton family legacy. Cassie wants nothing to do with her father’s plans, plans that threaten all semblance of freedom for our story line heroine. Hoping to push the envelope, our heroine goes in search of someone with the ability to tattoo over her scars, scars burned into her flesh ten years earlier. Joel ‘Cal’ Calero knew the moment Cassandra stepped into his shop, revenge was close at hand but Cal never expected to fall in love with the platinum blonde beauty, a woman he once thought of as an ice-cold and frigid. The relationship between Cal and Cassandra is predicted upon a lie, a lie of omission as Cal struggles with his attraction to the woman whose father he is hoping to destroy. Cal believes Cassandra is a spoiled princess, but Cassandra sees beyond Cal’s own scars and tattoos, sees the man with whom she will fall in love. Desperate for an escape to forget about life for a while, our heroine returns to Rocktown Ink for much more than her scheduled tattoo. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to Cal’s younger brother Dane, and their cousin Logan aka Bull; Cassandra’s grandmother, her father Lyall Deighton, their neighbour Spencer Livingston; as well as Cassanda’s friend Ted. BEG FOR YOU is a story of betrayal, vengeance, secrets and lies; a story of grief and loss; of retribution and revelations. The premise is dramatic; the characters are broken and energetic; the romance is steamy, sexy and hot. BEG FOR YOU is a spicy, sensitive, and spirited introduction to Sherilee Gray’s ROCKTOWN INK world.
Rated 4.5 Stars I devoured Beg For You in one sitting. It kept my attention from to start to finish. It's a naughty opposites attract that I simply adored. I loved this story and these characters and cannot wait to read the next book in the series. Copy provided by author
Beg For You is a spicey opposites attract love story between a good girl and the boy from the wrong side of the tracts. Their worlds are so far apart and yet the connection is instant. Cal struggles with wanting revenge against her father who caused a lot of damage to his family and just plain wanting Cassy for the beautiful woman she has become. Cassy doesn't care that Cal isn't someone her father approves of. She is tired of living her life for him and longs to be selfish for once. When she meets Cal at the tattoo parlor, she only expected to want to cover the scars that cover her back, not to fall in love with the man who has scars of his own. Cal was an easy hero to fall for. He's big, quiet and more honorable than he gives himself credit for. Cassy is one of the sweetest heroines. She could easily have been a snobby woman with her background but she lives more in guilt over her brother's car accident. Her father has used that guilt for years to keep tight control over her. Despite the obstacles in their path, I really enjoyed this pairing. I like to see how far a hero will go to to keep the woman he loves. If Bull's story is next, I expect it will be just as delicious!
