Avery Moore is all dance, all the time. Ballet is all she's ever known, and she's damn good at it. Her body is her art, a living canvas that captivates Reece the first time he lays his eyes on her.
He yearns to leave his mark on her body... in more ways than one.
The tattooed degenerate with a shady past. The beautiful ballerina with a bright future. They live in different worlds, yet somehow, they fit. But just because they fit doesn't mean they belong together. Cracks sometimes form. Two pieces don't always make a whole. The course of love never did run smoothly. Things get messy.
And Reece doesn't do messy.
Reece is a tattoo artist that lives meagerly and simply. He doesn't do relationships, preferring one nightstands instead. He has great artistic ability but he only uses it for tattooing, having given up on being an artist, years ago.
When Reece sees Avery for the first time he feels an instant attraction but they are from different worlds. He is a tattooed bad boy and she is a ballerina, in her final year at Juilliard. They begin spending time together and somehow Reece and Avery end up in a relationship without him meaning to be.
This story is told from Reece's point of view and I really enjoyed that. There were times when I really wanted to know what was going on in Avery's head and would have appreciated her point of view also.
This book is a sweet romance and it's fairly light on the angst which is also a nice change. I loved Reece and Avery and I'd like to see where their relationship ends up. Maybe J.M. will write a follow up! I can hope anyway!
I'm giving this book 5 stars
