First Ink (Wicked Ink Chronicles #1) by Laura Wright


Women in his bed, celebs and rockers in his chair and a killer bank account at his disposal, life is pretty freaking swell. Then she walks back into it again. With her mismatched eyes, perfect pink mouth and a laugh that still haunts him, she gave him nothing but marvelous misery. Now she wants his hands on her again. Not for pleasure, but for pain. For Ink. A bleeding heart to match the one she left him with five years ago.


She can’t forget him. No matter how hard she’s tried. The pain she caused him in the past eats at her daily, and she can’t move on with her life. But she has a plan, a hope for redemption – a way for him to take his revenge out on her flesh. But it’ll only work if he lets her inside his exclusive world, under his famous artist’s needle and into his bed—and heart-once again.

*First Ink can also be found in the Wicked Firsts Anthology releasing on August 19, 2013.

I've been all about the kindle freebies lately, and this was one of them. The cover drew me in and the synopsis hooked me, sexy, love and tattoos, yep thats my book tick list met.  So, we start off meeting Addison who has just arrived at a tattoo convention with her best friend. She had a plan, one that seemed great back in the car. Simply to meet Rush, that was all. Rush a renowned tattooist who has inked celebs and stars alike and apparently has a three year waiting list, one that Addison has been on for that long. Rush never does conventions, so imagine his surprise when he requests virgin skin to ink, and upsteps the one that broke his heart, stood on it and made love unattainable.

Oh boy, the chemistry between these two is immense, its steamy but true love and that for me, makes it all the more better. Told from both points of view, we see them battle their inner turmoil, Addison wants forgiveness, but does she really want more? Rush feels like he needs revenge, but this girl holds a place in his heart.  This is a short book and i finished it in about an hour in total, but it was sexy and i went and bought book two straight out, because this is one relationship i truely invested in.

This is the first book by the author i have read, and it was the perfect mix of tension, bad boy ways, true love and every now and then we saw a more tender side of the couple, every now and then we got a glimpse of their true feelings towards each other. First ink was book #1 in the Wicked Ink Chronicles series, #2 follows Rush & Addisons story further, and well lets just say, i may have already finished that too...



  1. This sounds really good! I might give this book a shot!


  2. I was on the fence about continuing with book 2, but now I think I'll have to do it, just to complete Rush and Addison's story :)
