L. A. Witt
Rating: ✨✨✨✨ of 5 stars
This is book two of a series that combines two of my favorite groups of men, tattoo artists and military men. You don’t need to read the first book to understand this one but I would recommend reading both. I’m going to try really hard to give no spoilers but I loved these books and just have to bite my tongue to not over share.
This is yet another example of Witt’s skill at creating men and stories that you just can’t put down. Her men are not just cookie cutter examples of their groups. She doesn’t back away from including serious issues in her books. Her men are real men not caricatures of gay military and tattoo artists. The only reason I gave this book four stars instead of five was that I liked the characters in the first book better. It is well written, few to no typos and has a great story line.
I would recommend this book to all readers of m/m romance.
I volunteered to write a review of this book after receiving an ARC from Netgalley.
Fighter pilot Jon Russell is an unrepentant manwhore. He rarely does more than a one night stand and is quite adamant that he will not get involved in a relationship. But when he meets hot tattoo artist, Matt Huffman, there are definitely sparks flying. Matt has spent his life saying he's not gay, trying to convince the world and himself, but one drunken night with a friend and her boyfriend has him questioning his sexuality.
Jon and Matt have instant chemistry and it is evident in every page of this book. Once Matt gets over his initial shock of being so attracted to Jon, he's quite open to exploring his sexuality and Jon is definitely on board with helping him explore it.
I really enjoyed how easily and naturally their "non-relationship" grows. Both men enjoy each others company, the sex is definitely amazing (I'm surprised my Kindle didn't catch fire), and neither has any desire to see other people. I did get a little annoyed at how often Jon would think that he'd be fine with Matt sleeping around because that was clearly not true, but I get that it's part of the storyline.
I enjoyed Matt and Jon's journey. I was a little bummed that it took both of them so long to see what was completely obvious to everyone else, but other than that this story is great. Two hot men, great sex and good friends makes for a good read.
The book starts out in a kind of humorous vein; fighter pilot Jon Russel has lost a bet and must get a tattoo of whatever his buddies pick and on whatever part of his body; within reason. When he sees the tattoo artist who will be initiating him into the world of ink he is stunned speechless by the man's good looks.
Matt Huffman likes women but lately he's also realized he's attracted to men, although he's not really ready to admit it out loud. He's intrigued by Jon and his commitment to getting a tattoo even though he doesn't really want one.
I loved how this story developed a bit slowly. Not the sex part, these two guys hooked up quickly, but the relationship between them developed slowly. They both agreed that it would only be for fun, no strings sex and companionship. As things begin to change John gets scared.
The depth of feeling conveyed by Ms. Witt's writing was just perfect. In a way, I pretty much knew how the story was going to go but I just didn't know how it would get there. The writing kept me glued to my e-reader and I didn't want to put it down. The only thing that kept me from finishing this in one sitting was sleep – as in my e-reader fell out of my hands when I could no longer keep my eyes open!
I almost never read excerpts for the next book when they're found at the end of my current read. I'm not sure what compelled me to read the one for Cover Up but I did and now I can't wait to read it.
A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.

So, there was a plot of sorts aside from the hot sex. Manwhore Navy pilot, Jon, loses a bet and has to get a tattoo. Enter Matt, the hot tattoo artist who’s questioning his “not gay” status.
Matt wants to explore and learn the ways of man sex with no strings attached. This suits commitment phone Jon perfectly. Of course, no strings turns into something more.
Did this book deserve 4 Stars? Maybe 3.5, but I so enjoyed imagining these boys slamming each other against the walls and pounding into each other into the mattress that it deserves a 4 for pure hotness.
I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, this was the second and I didn’t feel lost. So, got at it. These guys are scorching together!
