Plot:  I’ve always known she was too good for me, but that never stopped me from wanting her.

And then I finally had her for one night.

A night I don’t remember.

I figured I’d blown my shot.

But now she’s walked back into my life, and this time, I have the upper hand. I want my second chance.

Will she be able to see the man beneath this ink?

 My Review

“We all see what we want to see…”

Beneath this Ink was another great story from the wonderful Meghan March!!

“I never hated you. Just didn’t want to want you so bad. And now I don’t care—because you’re mine.”

Growing up as a Foster kid, Constantine “Con” Leahy has always felt that perfect “it” girl, Vanessa Frost, was totally out of his league.

Always watching her from the shadows, one night magical night from the ‘wrong side of the tracks’ changes everything. And yet, he does not remember a single second of it. But she does!

“We were like oil and water. Although that night, to be cliché, we’d been like fire and water.”

Fast forward two years, and when Vanessa pops into his tattoo shop and propositions a business deal that could be his only opportunity-- Con sees it as his last chance to claim what has always been his.

From there on, it’s tough and go and one hell of a mixture of fiery chemistry with both characters learning something new about one another and peeling back the façade, preconceived notions both have always kept about each other and from the world.

But, as social castes come into the mix, dark vengeful motives and secrets surface... as well as Con’s and Vanessa’s gnawing insecurities paving the way…what will become of this unlikely couple? Can they succumb the tumultuous tests that are about to come their way? Can Vanessa prove herself and gather the courage to take the plunge despite the opposition of what society thinks? Can Con rise above the darkness that plagues his heart?

And most importantly, can Con and Vanessa see beneath the scars and hurts and give into something that is real? Read and you will find out!

#A great follow up to this dynamic series! Was nice to see an appearance from Charlie and Simon again! *does a happy dance*

I hope Lord, Trey, and maybe Elle will get their own stories!! Maybe Lord and Elle together?! I think they’d be really cute together!

Thank you Meghan for sending me the shout-out about this book’s blog tour and review opportunity!! I really appreciate you and am in love with your engaging stories and intriguing characters!♥

Hugs and kisses,

My Rating:

“Con, can you take this walk-in?” Delilah called from the front of the shop.

I pushed back from the desk and shoved my hair away from my face. It was too damn long. I needed to get it cut, but the girl I’d been going to for the last year had basically fallen onto my cock last week, and I wasn’t going to be letting her near my jugular with scissors any time soon. She wasn’t enamored of my, ‘I don’t go there twice unless there’s something worth going back for’ mentality. I probably could have phrased it a little nicer, but why give the girl false hope when I’d all but forgotten her as soon as I’d slid the condom off my dick? I didn’t have time for bullshit, and I didn’t like to be misunderstood when I spoke. So I was firmly in the ‘tell it how it is’ camp. Women didn’t seem to appreciate my particular brand of honesty. Mostly because it didn’t line up with what they wanted to hear. Not my problem.

I stood and headed for the door of the break room. Time to meet my newest walk-in.

If I had to tattoo one more “YOLO” on some idiot kid, I might hang up my tattoo gun and call it a day. Thoughts like that made me feel older than thirty-one.

I scanned the shop, looking for my next client. If I hadn’t learned a hell of a long time ago how to lock down my reactions, I might’ve missed a step.  

It was no kid.

And if she wanted YOLO tattooed on that body, it’d be a crime against nature. Anger flared within me at the sight of her. I might not remember the night we’d spent together, but I sure as hell remembered the morning after when I’d interrupted her escape from my bedroom. We’d thrown words like grenades, and it was a miracle we’d both walked away without bloodshed. Even with that memory vividly replaying in my head, I still had to tell my dick to calm the fuck down.

Vanessa Fucking Frost was still out of my league. Hell, out of my fucking universe. She’d been too good for me in high school, she’d been too good for me two years ago, and as sure as she was standing in my shop today, she was still too damn good for me. And I bet she’d be the first person to say it. I still couldn’t figure out how she’d ended up in my bed that night. Not because my bed didn’t see action with rich chicks—it saw plenty—but not like her. Classic elegance like Grace Kelly. Joy Leahy used to make me watch To Catch a Thief with her, and that’s exactly who Vanessa reminded me of.

Her platinum blond hair was twisted up into some fancy ass bun, and her tan skirt suit clung to her curves in all the right places. One perfectly manicured hand toyed with the gold bracelet on her wrist. My jeans tightened uncomfortably at the peek of a lacy pink bra from beneath her pink silk blouse.

My reaction to her pissed me off.

Do you know what it’s like to finally get something you’ve always wanted, but not remember a single fucking detail?

It ate away it me. The not knowing. Part of me wanted to tell her to get the hell out of my shop, but the other part of me wanted to drag her upstairs, strip her naked, and tie her to my bed so this time she couldn’t leave until I was damn good and ready. Which might be never. And that thought—that weakness—infuriated me.

“Never thought I’d see you darken my doorway again. What can I do for you, princess?” A mocking edge colored my words.

Her nervous twirling of her bracelet halted, and her blue eyes, several shades lighter and more vibrant than my own, met mine. Her pink tongue darted out over her perfectly plump bottom lip slicked with gloss. This nervous, off-balance look of hers raised all my red flags. I was used to the quiet, sexy-as-all-hell confidence that had always drawn me in. At least until she’d opened her mouth that infamous morning and told me what she’d really thought of me.

“I need a few moments of your time.”

I raised an eyebrow. Now that was a new development. She’d never sought me out.

“Is that so?”

“Yes, if you could spare me five minutes.”

Some of her words from that morning, which I might as well have tattooed on my skin, came back to me: Do this again? Are you crazy? I must have been insane to do this the first time. This can never happen again. And no one can ever know. No one. 

And now she wanted a favor?

“In this shop, the only way a woman gets my time is if she’s getting a tattoo, or is on her knees or her back.” I knew my answer was crude, but that was what she undoubtedly expected from me. And I hated to disappoint.

A flush of color hit her cheekbones, and I wondered for a brief second whether she was remembering what it had been like to be on her knees in front of me. Fuck. I wish I remembered. Then I could just fucking move on.

I waited for the clipped go to hell and an abrupt exit. But instead of turning and walking out, she surprised me.

“A tattoo it is, then.”

 Interview with Meghan March 

"1)  Hey Meghan, as a follower of your works since your book debut, I was wondering where you get all of your ideas for your books?  Where they inspired from real life events, something you came across or saw on tv perhaps?  Or a person?..Etc..”

First, thank you! Flash Bang was so different, and I appreciate you taking a chance on it and me! My ideas really come from everywhere and nowhere. I know that doesn’t make much sense, but I tend to be fairly observant, so I see plot ideas and character ideas everywhere. And then sometimes, it’s just a flash of inspiration that seemingly comes out of nowhere. I kind of love it that way because I never know what’s going to spark the next idea or create the next character.

“2)  How do you think this particular book and series compares with Flash Bang?”

Flash Bang is definitely in a category all of its own. As a post-apocalyptic ménage, it’s very different from the Beneath Series, which is contemporary romance. I think the similarities are there, however, in the strong female characters, and the super sexy men.

“3)  Is there anything you would like readers to take back whenever they pick up your book, or any book for that matter?  Any theme or matter you feel needs to be addressed when it comes to your characters or any events that may take place?

I honestly don’t focus much on an overall theme of a book when I write it. I’m so caught up in the story and the character growth that I don’t even realize what the theme is until I’m done. I think one thing I’d like readers to get out of my books is that everyone has the capacity to change—whether it’s to change themselves or to change their circumstances. Nothing in life is truly static, and the power to change the course of our lives is in our hands if we just have the courage to take that leap.

“4)  And lastly, before I conclude my review, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read and respond to my inner ramblings. :)  “

Thank you! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for taking the time to read and review my books. Answering a few questions is the least I can do. xoxo

“5) I came across this quote by author, George R.R. Martin, and thought it to be very on point and true to a reader's soul.  It states:
‘A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen [a character in Martin's novels]. The man who never reads lives only one.’
What does this mean to you?  And do you also agree?  Disagree?  And why?"

I absolutely love the sentiment behind that quote, and as a die-hard reader, I find it to be very true. I have lived a thousand lives through the books I’ve read. I have been a thousand characters. I have traveled to a thousand places. I can’t imagine living a life without those adventures and experiences. It makes me incredibly sad to think about how dull and colorless my existence would have been as a child, teenager and an adult without books.
