INKY (Book One) ONLY $0.99:
Cole Carlyle, successful hotelier, has lived his life on his own terms.
Burned by a gold digging ex-wife, he never expected to find his soul mate in Anika “Inky” Redding. 

Anika Redding, talented artist, overcame her past to live her life free of shame. Betrayed by people she thought she could trust, the last thing she expected was to find true love in Cole Carlyle.

Their love for each other has helped them overcome their demons before, but now faced with an unimaginable challenge, Cole must turn to the last person he wants involved in his life, and hope that those demons don’t once again try to swallow them whole.

Inky and Cole’s romance and passion ignite and in the sequel to “Inky” we follow their journey to overcome their pasts once and for all, while building their love into something everlasting.

My Review
I read Inky and Cole back to back and I am so glad I did. Both of these books are amazing! In the acknowledgements of Cole, the author tells us that she wanted to rip our hearts out and give us a happy ending. I can honestly say that she does both of those. 

Cole picks up where Inky left off. We learn more about Cole's past and his family as his relationship with Anika deepens. They both have demons from their pasts that seem to keep catching up with them. We also get to keep up with Ames, Gus, and Nico. 

I am having a hard time writing this review because I don't want to give anything away. I will say that I couldn't put either book down and I finished both in 2 days. The stories are heart wrenching, heart warming, and sexy as hell. I have a serious book hangover right now. 5+++++ out of 5!!

“Don’t move, baby.” He said gently.
“I’m not going anywhere.” I sat Indian style on the bed and hugged my knees up to my chest letting my head rest against them. “You know what?”
“What?” I heard from the direction of the bathroom.
“I always called Evan ‘baby’. My Dad called me ‘baby’ and I wanted to save it for the man I would marry. I’m sorry I wasted it on him when I have you.” He was behind me, pulling my hair back when I felt a brush against my scalp…heaven. “That feels wonderful…what are you doing?”
“I’m getting you ready for bed.” I could hear his smile.
“You’re brushing my hair.” I sighed happily, stating the obvious. “Wouldn’t you rather be having hot-drunk-no holds barred-sex?”
“Does this feel good?”
“It feels incredible.”
“Then we can have hot-drunk- no holds barred-sex another night. But tonight, Christmas Eve, I want you to remember this. I want it to be special. Both of us in our cupcake pajama’s, me holding you, taking care of you…this is the beginning of our life together…baby.”
