Hot chicks and cool ink have been my life, my everything, for the past five years. But with one phone call that bliss is totally shot to shit. Don’t want to hear it. Don’t want to deal with it. But oh yeah, it’s coming for me. The motherfucking past. And who’s along for the ride? You’re never gonna believe it. That’s right, another blast from my past. The one and only rejection. Blondie. Hey…maybe it’s not all bad. Maybe I can finally get her - legs up and back to the mattress, that is.
Yes, I’m getting married. And yes, it’s to ‘Buttons.’ I’m not embarrassed and I don’t think it’s a failure. Unfortunately, my bestie doesn’t agree. In fact, she thinks she has to rescue me. But ladies and gents, I’m beyond help. I’m cooked. I just want to fade into the Santa Barbara’s overly polished woodwork. If only a gorgeous tatted, foul-mouthed problem from my past would stop showing up and showing off what I’m never going to allow myself to have.
Length: 30,000 words
Note: This is a New Adult book
Our hero, Vincent, is almost an antihero with his constant stream of women and his totally bad ass and dirty ways. In fact, Rebel Ink even begins with a scene that confused me at first because the author gives a point of view from someone who isn't even really part of the book, but it certainly starts with a bang!
As this story unfolded, we get multiple points of view and yes, it's a sexy read but there's great depth here. I will admit though that I didn't quite understand why Lisa was so desperate to just conform and was quite relieved when she found her backbone. Lisa is not my favourite heroine but Vincent surprised me.
As Rebel Ink is so short I've no wish to spoil it for other readers, but will say it's written in a way that initially might feel off putting but by the end it's impossible to put down. Ms Wright tackles tough issues in a way to make you think, but still manages to entertain her readers. I think anyone who reads this book will cheer for Vincent and that for me was perhaps the most surprising thing of all.
I was gifted a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
