In Shattered Ink, we get to see the uncertainty and complications that go with a new relationship, especially on that involves distances and things like, oh I don't know, finishing a college degree. It's messy and hard and uncertain, and I loved how that was delivered in this story. Each character was worried about the other and what they were thinking.
The only thing that kept me from giving this story a higher rating was the "slang". I feel very strongly about using "Whore" and other descriptors as nicknames or endearments. I know this makes me old, but I respect myself and my BFF enough that I would NEVER regularly use those as a descriptor. It makes both cheaper and devalues each other. That being said, I understand that is how this age group talks and Laura did capture it well, I just didn't care for it throughout the story. The other thing would be to have more pages! I would have loved if this story would have been longer!
Shattered Ink is the second installment in the Wicked Ink Series and picks up where First Ink (Wicked Ink Chronicles) left off. Addison and Rush have reunited, but Addison has returned to California with her best friend Lisa to finish her last few weeks of college while Rush runs his business, "Wicked Ink Tattoo Shop" in Las Vegas. Their separation has been hard on both of them:
"It's like the most beautiful torture in the world, seeing him. I'm on a high when I'm around him. When he's gone, I crash. And I can't seem to bounce back. I'm utterly and completely addicted to him."
Rush can't wait for Addison to finish college so they can start their life together and is also feeling the strain of their long-distance relationship. He is completely and desperately in love with Addison, so much so he's broken his own rule..."No.Names.Inked Onto Skin....it's like the kiss of death."
When Addison arrives for her weekend visit things feel different. Addison's past continues to make her doubt her relationship.
Rush wants to ask Addison to move in with him after she graduates but is afraid of what Addison's reaction might be. And when an old girlfriend of Rush's shows up to work at the shop for a day and makes things uncomfortable, Rush and Addison have to deal with the issues from Rush's past.
The story ends with a scene from graduation day from Addison's friend Lisa's POV, which sets up the next book, Rebel Ink. In First Ink (Wicked Ink Chronicles), something happened between Lisa and Vincent, who works in Rush's tattoo shop. When Addison, Rush, and Vincent meet up with Lisa and her family at the graduation, there is a ton of tension between Lisa and Vincent. Can't wait for the next installment!
Addison is so much in love with Rush that it scares her. She can barely function for missing him when they are apart. She worries that her obsession with him will push him away if he were to learn of it so she keeps things to herself as she struggles with the ghosts of her past and not wanting to mess things up between them.
Rush does miss Addison so much when they are apart. His love for her is so great that he breaks a cardinal rule, never to ink the name of someone on his body. He wants her to move in with him after she graduates from college and plans to ask her but there is something off with Addison this visit that he has to figure out. His ex-girlfriend showing up does slightly complicate things. But not for long for these two really are deeply in love with each other.
This was an enjoyable, sexy read that I wished had been longer with a little more depth as well as to see Rush and Addison have more of a cemented HEA. I really became invested in these two characters from First Ink and hope to see them again. The set up for the next novella with different main characters was good and this reader is looking forward to it.
But even with the intense love they feel for each other can it overcome the long distance relationship or will the arrival of one of Rush’s ex’s be just the hit to knock them off balance?
Addison and Rush both learn what it means to be honest and open and trusting. And once they do that then there’s nothing holding them back.
I loved the lead into book 3, Rebel Ink, and cannot wait for its release sometime in 2014. I just have to know what happened between Lisa and Vincent when they first met.
My Favorite Moment: The motorcycle ride home and an emergency stop for the sake of safety.
My Favorite Quote: “I stop myself because my gut is going tight. Like pissed, jealous, controlling-dude tight, and I don’t like that guy. He’s weak and an embarrassment to all who have dicks.”
