More than Meets the Ink (Bowen #1) by Elle Aycart ✰✰✰✰


Wickedly sexy James Bowen is a bad boy of the highest order — tattoos and attitude included — which unfortunately ranks way up on Tate’s not-a-chance-in-hell list, right there along with skydiving naked over Teheran and juggling Ebola vials just for kicks. But what the heck, she’s on holiday, the guy is absolutely irresistible, and she needs to unplug from her life. With her dad and brother gone, Tate is left to deal with the family restaurant, which is fast going down the drain. Her employees are acting out, her boyfriend has bailed out, and her very own private stalker is emailing her to death with lovely threats of doom, fire, and dismemberment. So yeah, maybe a little holiday fling is in order. Strictly sex though, and no follow-up whatsoever once.

She hadn’t counted on her take-charge holiday fling having an opinion of his own and stubbornly sticking around, before and after the sex, making himself at home in her life. There is definitely more to James than meets her prejudiced eye, and even if she’s not ready to look deeper, James isn’t prepared to permit her not to.


This book is seriously hot! I was hooked by James and Tate’s relationship right from the start and couldn’t put this down!

I’m giving the book 4.5 as Tate’s attitude towards ‘tattoed bad boys’ drove me to distraction at times. I get that this prejudice played a huge part in the story but really… who thinks like that? And those people who do think like that, certainly don’t deserve to be given so many chances.

So despite wanting to slap Tate at certain parts of the book, but it was fab. And I’m very much looking forward to the second Bowen book as apparently it’s even better.

Now where can I find me a James Bowen?!

“He should come with a warning from
the health department: Handle with extreme caution and use at your own peril. Looking will cause palpitations, dizziness, and hyperventilation. She
knew, for she was having all of those and then some.”
