Peek Inside Sin and Ink

Lusting after my dead brother’s wife Eden is a go-straight-to-hell kind of sin. I promised my family—and him—I’d stay away. But surrendering to the forbidden might be worth losing everything.

There's sin, and then there's literally going-straight-to-hell sin...

Being in lust with my dead brother's wife pretty much guarantees that one day I'll be the devil's bitch. But Eden Gordon works with me, so it's getting harder and harder to stay away. I promised my family—and him—I would, though.

My days as an MMA champion are behind me. But whenever I see her, with those wicked curves and soft mouth created for dirty deeds, it's a knock-down fight to just maintain my distance. "Hard Knox" becomes more than just the name of my tattoo shop. However, surrendering to the forbidden might be worth losing everything...

Praise

“This was a sexy, gritty, and well-written story. It was a bit of a slow burn at first, and then went white-hot.” -Kelli W., Goodreads

“I have to say this book was so flipping erotic and dripping with sensuality. It is lustful and oozing anticipation, page after page. It is so flipping intense and screaming hot.  This writer killed it in terms of highly descriptive build up and every emotion that she could possibly conceive. It was a roller coaster of heat, lust, and ultimately love.” -Chris C., Goodreads

“Holy smokes this is one steamy read that I couldn't put down.  Fabulous read from page one to the end.  Sin and Ink is a beautifully written story with lots of emotional drama.” -Melinda B., Goodreads

“WOW!  This book is hot and full of emotion. The story is well-written, the characters full and interesting and the hard-won happily ever after is satisfying.  And hot? Oh My!” -Jem S., Goodreads

“OMFG!  So much to love about this book!  The story is as hot as the cover!” -Rebecca W., Goodreads

“Oh my! I said that a lot while reading this book. I said DAMN! a whole lot too while fanning myself! Knox and Eden were so hot! I really loved reading this book and feeling all the emotions. It was raw but honest. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Remember it is HOT HOT HOT!” -Larissa P., Goodreads

“Holy Smokes Batman, this book is off the charts HOT! From beginning to the end, the chemistry between the two main characters, Knox and Eden were giving me all the feels!” -PNR Book Lover Reviews

3.5 Stars!

This was one hot read that was a bit difficult for me to rate. The guilt that Knox displayed over and over in this book kept interrupting all that taboo hotness the author delivered to us.

Knox is an incredibly appealing hero. He's former MMA, big, tatted and gorgeous. He's got that dir... ...more

I have to say this book was so flipping erotic and dripping with sensuality. I don’t mean that in terms of action, but actually in terms of feeling and emotion. Even with that I am not sure if that’s the best description of what this book is.

I thought the author handled the taboo subject of falling for your brother/sister in law perfectly. The struggles and emotions between Know and Eden were real, raw and at times overwhelming.

4.5 STARS... I loved this one so hard!!!

I love a good fighter romance but so often I feel like the character development of the fighter leaves me unsatisfied. Knox, however, is PERFECTION. He's broken and brooding and his quiet masculinity says far more than any flowery dialogue ever could. He's... ...more

Knox and Eden know they should resist the pull that they feel towards each other but as time passes and hours spent together, it gets harder and harder to stay away from each other. Theirs is a love that should be forbidden but the heart wants what the heart wants, and now it's only a matter of t... ...more

Holy steamy lusty crazy craving yearning obsession. Knox is so full of years-long pent up desire for his brother's widow that there were times it seemed he might go insane with it. The craving only ratchets when Eden admits she's starting to feel it, too. Forget insta-love, or even insta-lust. Th... ...more

I mean... a lot of the romance books I read have sex and smut and all that. But Sin and Ink was off the charts hot. This is definitely erotica so make sure you comfortable with that before diving in.

They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but this cover spoke to me. I was eager to read the story contained, even though angsty novels are generally not my thing. Sin and Ink is definitely an angst-filled, emotional tale with the slightest forbidden twist. I enjoyed reading th... ...more

Emotional angst (the guilt!) and steamy sex are about equal in this intense, forbidden love story.

Finished this beauty early this morning and Knox and Eden are still on my mind.

Hello Feels.

And I mean ALL. THE. FEELS.

Holy Hotness!! This book is seriously sexy and full of wonderful forbidden lust.

Sin & Ink is a forbidden, taboo and super hot story that I simply adored. It features a tortured, grumpy, man-bun wearing, bearded hero *cue swooning* and a sweet with a bit of bite heroine. I enjoyed their journey and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

HARD KNOX INK is owned by Knox who used to be a boxer and now does tattoos. Pretty cool name. It's a story of guilt, jealousy, a haunting past, and bit of erotic romance.
