Inking Scars by M.A. Stacie

Love will always leave a mark, no matter how fleeting.

Tattoo artist Seth Baxter has had enough loss to last him a lifetime. Focused and driven, he channels his energy into making his store is the best in the business. The one thing he can certainly do without is the return of his ex-girlfriend.

Bexley Way is lost. She runs back to the only person who can help her. She’s willing to take Seth’s hurt as long as he’ll offer her the solace she craves. He needs her help in the store and she’s desperate for his forgiveness, as well as his personal brand of security.

Secrets are kept by both of them, even when their old, unresolved, feelings resurface. Each day spent in her presence is a step forward for Seth. Their relationship was never truly over to him. Yet Bexley keeps so much to herself. Protecting her heart. Protecting Seth.

But when Bexley is faced with the true horror of her situation, she has no choice but to reveal it all to Seth. However, the words barely leave her lips before it all takes a deadly turn, leaving behind more anguish than ever before.

Are Seth and Bexley strong enough to right a past wrong and give themselves a permanent future?

I really enjoyed this second chance story. There was drama, hotness, a bit of angst, and a great plot. I really liked watching the secondary characters bicker too.

There are a few twists and turns that are left unexplained until the end, which kept the pages turning quickly.

This was an odd read for me in a way because normally I relate to the female in the story, but in this one I really felt for Seth and didn't really like the explanation Bexley gave for running. Seth was the character that was dealing with the pain from their past relationship and all that they'd been through, while Bexley seemed to only want to place blame where it shouldn't have been. However, I have to say that I did see her side of things, I just didn't understand why she left. She ended up making the situation so much worse by doing it so I was a little bitter toward her at points.

M.A. Stacie is never without a book or her eReader. A voracious reader, with a love of sexy, yet angst ridden novels, she loves getting lost in new worlds. Her need to write did not grip her until after her second son was born, when her previous rambles became fully fledged stories.

She describes herself as one huge contradiction and though not the most conventional of hobbies, she counts getting new tattoos as one of hers along with running, knitting and listening to loud music. However, she is yet to work out how to do them all at the same time.

M.A. Stacie lives in the UK with her husband and three sons.
