Tattooed bad boy James Bowen is about to marry the love of his life. Everything would be perfect if it wasn't for the tiny detail that his bride-to-be is freaking out big time. And trying to hide it from him.
Tate Cooper is losing it. She loves James with all her heart and wants to be married to him; it's the getting married that's killing her. Still grieving the loss of her father and brother,and totally overwhelmed by the wedding arrangements, she's in full emotional meltdown. But James deserves a happy bride, not a high-maintenance, sorrow-filled, guilt-stricken one, and, by God, she's going to give him that, even if she has to paste on a smile and fake it till she makes it.
James doesn't know whether to be amused or pissed. He understands she's running scared, but there is no way in hell he's going to allow this to continue; he's going to push her to confront her fears until she happily embraces their ever after.
Oh, James Bowen... How I have missed you and your sexy, dirty, sweet, sexy, bossy mouth. Did I say sexy? James Bowen and his brother Cole are two sexy BAMFs. The amount of sexy aggression that just rolls off those two is enough to make any woman melt. What really makes James Bowen sexy, though, is the way he loves Tate. He makes his princess feel safe, desired, treasured. There is nothing James won't do or say to make Tate happy. It honestly doesn't get any sexier than that.
Inked Ever After is about the time leading up to James and Tate's wedding, and she's not handling the stress well. Wedding planning is hell under the best of circumstances, but Tate is also still dealing with the death of her father and brother. Gosh, the author did an amazing job of conveying Tate's grief. Her pain was heartbreaking and had my eyes welling up with tears more than once. And though this aspect of the story is so sad, it also gives Tate - and the reader - the opportunity to see how amazing James is.
Author Elle Aycart is a BOSS when comes to erotic romance, and is truly one of the very best out there. Super Alpha James is an aggressive, bossy, and barely leashed beast (just go with me, this is a good thing). Pirate Princess Tate (trust me, this makes sense if you read the books) has come a long way since the beginning of More Than Meets the Ink. This woman is out of control hot for James, and I loved when she gave him a run for his money. So yeah, Inked Ever After is so freaking hot that I got more than a little lightheaded and at times I could barely see straight.
Aaaand.... Inked Ever After seems to have a nice lead-in to the next books in the series, about Max, Mike, and Jack. If you're looking for erotic romance with sexy, badass and completely lovable Alpha men and the sexy, badass women who can handle them, the Bowen series is a sure thing.
"You're naughty, princess," he whispered to her.
"I learned from the very best," she replied with a smirk. ~28%
He closed his eyes. When he opened them, they were softer. "You won't lose me. There is nothing in this world that matters more to me than you. Absolutely nothing. You come first. Always. I love you. I don't think you realize how much. Or how much I need you in my life. How whole and totally at peace I feel when you're in my arms and I'm deep inside you. You're the one, princess. The reason I wake up with a smile on my lips. The reason it stays on my face all fucking day. When I hurry home from work, I'm hurrying back to you. To you, Tate. Do you understand what I'm saying? I've made my choice. Don't you ever say I deserve better." ~35%
He tightened his embrace and kissed her temple. "I know I can't give Jonah or your dad back. They're irreplaceable, but I can give you my brothers. And my dad. They love you, Tate. And you have me too. I'll love you and cherish you for as long as you'll have me. ~92%
