Enjoy another Dirty British Romance by Talia Hibbert, author of Bad for the Boss. Christmas just got sexy…
“There’s a beast inside of me. I keep it caged. You drive it wild.”
Cash Evans has come a long way since his troubled childhood, but all the wealth he’s earned as a tattoo artist can’t fix the hole in his heart. He knows that the sweet barista who haunts his dreams is off-limits… But life doesn’t always go to plan.
”There isn’t a man on earth who could ruin me.”
Bailey Cooper is determined to learn from her mother’s mistakes. She’s seen how cruel love can be, and she’s not about to sacrifice her self-respect for a relationship. But when a bad boy with a heart of gold comes to her rescue, she finds herself wondering if this beast might just be her Prince Charming.
Will these two lost souls find a happy ending under the tree this Christmas?
Or is their love doomed to wither with the mistletoe?
Merry Inkmas is a steamy Christmas romance starring a brooding, bad boy hero and a Black, BBW heroine. Be warned: this love is hot enough to melt any winter frost!
I saw several people talking about how they got this on Amazon for free and that they ended up really loving it. I have been in the mood for Christmas books so I got it myself not really expecting all that much from it but boy was I wrong.
I don’t really know were to start with this review. Lets start with the characters. First off there’s Bailey who I love. She is such a strong woman who doesn’t want to rely on men, which by the way she doesn’t have to because she can definitely take care of herself. Then there’s Cash who OMG again I love him. He can be an ass sometimes but it’s totally understandable and forgivable. Both of these characters have pasts that have shaped who they are as adults but you see them unexpectedly help each other and grow from it.
The book is also wonderfully diverse. Bailey is a POC and there’s a gay side character, which I wish we got more of because I loved his parts. Aside from that this book touches on deeper subjects like abuse and intrusive thoughts and I feel like they are handled respectfully. I feel like this is a great representation on how things can affect different people throughout their life.
I don’t know what else to say besides that I absolutely loved this book. I found myself laughing out loud several times and my heart broke several times as well. If you haven’t read this I highly recommend. I will definitely be reading more from this author.
