Lift. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
Qualifying to compete on a national level is all that’s on power lifter Dagen Rourke’s mind. After an injury sidelined him the previous year, his only goal has been to overcome the physical challenges and mental demons to get back in the game.
Falling into bed with the new artist at his brother’s tattoo shop was never part of his training schedule. Now he has to find a balance between the time he wants to give Ollie and the brutal training for what could be the most important competition of his life.
Run. Tattoo. Doze. Keep going.
Oliver Vos jumps at the chance to work at Vidar Rourke’s award-winning tattoo shop, Open Wounds. Getting out from under a nasty mentor and making it on his own is all Ollie has dreamed of for years. Unbeknownst to him, the room Vidar offers to rent him until he’s back on his feet would have him sharing space with tempting gentle giant, Dagen.
Living together is an adjustment, and when the heat between them morphs into something more will old insecurities and new tests drag them apart? Or will they find a way to carry the weight of their burdens…together?
5 STAR BOOK REVIEW
The sexual tension is off the charts. This story had me gripped from the very beginning. I have had the pleasure of reading something completely new, I’ve never read anything about tattooist’s or powerlifting in a story until now. It was very uplifting (HA! I just made a pun) I could have quite easily said that I meant that. Anyways moving on, doesn’t take much for me to get side tracked, but once I started this book I couldn’t put it down. I was dreading reading ‘THE END’
Dagen Rourke, just one of the Rourke’s brother’s, God I can’t wait to hear about this family, is fighting fit ready to enter his next competition, this man is built like a brick house. Solid in more ways than one.
Dagen’s character was like a magnet to me, I fell in love instantly. He’s super sweet yet so strong, what’s not to like? Sadly he is gay so my chances of a hook up are nil pois, try to forget he’s just a magnificent fictional man, I did, still do apparently. Well, no one can say I’m not passionate when I fall in love I fall hard. Fictional or not.
Ollie is a man in need of some serious TLC. He is so nice, and deserves happiness in his life. He certainly didn’t expect to end up where he did, but it’s a good move. He might have only been working at, Open Wounds for a short time, but everyone there looks out for each other. I sense tension between a couple of characters, and I am eager to know more.
Ollie and Dagen might not follow any typical dating rules, but who cares? Love is love wherever it is found, and no matter how quick. Dagen should know by now only the strongest survive.
Michelle Frost a thousand thank you’s for introducing me to a whole new world. I’ll be following this series like my life depended on it.
