✿ My Review ✿

From the moment they crossed paths, Malee and Maxwell felt an incredible connection. Soon, they're getting to know each other and falling in love. But Malee's father doesn't approve of Max. Will she fight for her relationship with Max or will she give in to her father's demands?

I loved Maxwell! The story is very sweet and entertaining. Once I started, I couldn't stop reading. The chemistry between Max and Malee is amazing and I couldn't help but cheer for them.

Malee is a twenty-year old Thai girl. She's a very creative and talented girl. She became deaf when she was a child. Since then, her father became overprotective of her, not wanting her to get hurt. But she longs for freedom and making her own choices. When she meets Max, she falls quickly in love with him, but she's afraid of her father reaction. I loved when she finally stood up to her father.
Maxwell O'Rourke is a tattoo artist. He earned the reputation of being a troublemaker when he was a teenager, but now he's changed. He wants to settle down and find the one for him. When he meets Malee, he believes he's found his soul mate. But he also believes he's not good enough for her, like her father believes. I loved that he learned sign language so he could communicate with Malee. He's so sweet and thoughtful!

Once again, Nicole James gives us an amazing book, with a captivating story and awesome characters. Although Maxwell is the second book in the Brothers Ink series, I believe it can be read as a standalone. I can't wait to read Liam!

Brothers Ink #1
Nicole James

Release Date: September 8th 2016

✾ Synopsis ✾

Jameson O'Rourke owns the primo tattoo shop in town, one he's worked hard to build. And in his industry, he's the current 'it' boy, the reigning King of Ink. His career is on fire, so hot television has even come calling. And as a result, the town bad-boy has now become the town's favored son.

Ava Hightower needs his face on her flyers, if she is to have any hope of her charity gala and bachelor auction being a success. Unfortunately, they get along like oil and water. He's a hardheaded, controlling jerk, and she's already had one run-in with the man. Asking him, of all people, for help is the last thing she wants to do.
Not exactly a match made in heaven.

Jameson doesn't think too highly of Miss Hightower, either.
To him, she's just an uptight, stuck-up know-it-all; a little Miss Goody-two-shoes. Not in a million years was she the type that he'd have anything to do with. Unfortunately she is also on the city council, and therefore has the ability to screw with his business.
He needed her help once before, and she shot him down.
Now the tables are turned, and she needs his help. Well, my, my, sweetheart, karma can be a cold-hearted bitch.

But, hey, maybe he could work this to his advantage.
You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours, and all that crap.
So they cut a deal. One he has no intention of ever having to fulfill, because he plans to make it impossible for her to keep her end of it.
She thought she could outlast him. Guess again, sweet thing. She may be a stubborn woman, but she's met her match. And he has no intention of letting her win this game.
Be warned, sweetheart, because the King of Ink has plans to push your limits in ways you've never imagined.

✿ Excerpt ✿

I sat in my office for the better part of the morning yesterday, staring at a long list of things to do now that winter is upon us. There was no way in hell I was going to be able to look it over if I didn't pull my head out of my ass. I have always taken every job I've had seriously. Pushed myself to the limit. But when the woman you love is mere feet away from you after years of you not being able to touch her, then your job goes down with it. At least it has for me.

I'm anything but calm. I'm fucking seething.

I came home from seeing her in that window and beat the hell out of my punching bag until my knuckles were raw. I thought about moving so I would never have to see her again. Then quickly changed my mind because the thought of her eventually finding someone else, another man touching what belongs to me, made me want to put a bullet through my head. I'll die if I find out someone has. I had to call Hunter to calm me down. He laughed for all of ten seconds. Then he sobered right up and started paddling in the opposite direction. "You man the hell up, boy. Right your wrongs and fight for that girl. I can't imagine what she's going through. Can you?" he said. My jaw dropped. His words punched me in the gut. But to hear him say the words that have been rotting away in my stomach had me falling back in a chair. My legs were no longer able to hold me.

I wasn't about to argue with him when what he said was right. Not to mention, I respected the man. Adriana has and still is living in hell. We both have.

Then I drank. My mind kept fading back to last night, how she went from her playful, seductive way to a traumatized victim of life's cruelty. It was written all over her face, her body. She's on the verge of falling apart, and even though she held herself together well, when she turned around her face gave it all away.mMy beautiful Adriana is barely keeping it together. I could see right through her. She's lost.

My mind goes back to this same day years ago. Burning blue orbs watched my every move, sending blood straight to my dick. Those eyes needed to be staring down at me while she rode him. I lifted my hand to reveal a sexy-as-hell corset. My own blues traveled up and down her body. Fuck, this would look good on her. It was purple. My favorite color next to the nude of her creamy-white skin. She immediately looked away when her sister strolled in dressed in clothes that looked like she'd slept in them. Hair a mess and eyes so red you would have to get up close to see their true color. I went from being turned the fuck on to royally fucking pissed. On our anniversary, no less.

I did my best to pay attention to what was happening between the two of them as my fingers flexed around the silky material in anger. Adriana loved the feel of silk. I loved the feel of her. But the sight of Alexis being here was enough to make me sick. My ears were hurting as I tried to pay attention to what they were saying.

"What on earth is she doing here looking like that, damn her?" I grumbled. I knew what she was doing, and I hated her all the more for it. She was trying to save her ass before I had the chance to try and set her straight. To backpaddle. And the part of her that wasn't high on whatever her choice of the day was, was eating away at her. She knew she fucked up in the worst possible way. Stupid bitch. I didn't like her before. I hated her now, and I had every reason to.

Adriana and Alexis argued for minutes. I knew Adriana wasn't buying her excuses. She had heard them all. All except the one I threatened Alexis to keep hidden. I was ready to break the two of them apart when her sister stormed out of the store and those once burning eyes quickly smoldered out with tears. With the garment still in my hands, I made it to her just before her legs gave out. I took her in my arms, cradled her to my chest, and held on tight while she let it all out. All the time knowing this was our last anniversary to be together and it was fucking ruined.

Everything about Adriana mirrors the same as that incident years ago. She's barely holding herself together. The sadness, the shame, the guilt. Not a one of them is her fault. It's fucking fate. The word so many people in this fucked-up world we live in believe in.

"I don't know what to do. I had every intention of telling her everything last night. Fuck, I even brought the file with me so she could read it, because I wasn't sure I had it in me to tell her how my greed in trying to give her the world nearly cost her life. She's so fucking broken over everything that has happened to her that I'm afraid she won't be able to handle this." I've never believed in fate. Not until she moved here. What I used to believe in was a love so powerful it can't be stopped no matter how much a person tries. No matter how many unmovable obstructions are thrown in its path. Love always finds a way. I'm just not so sure of it anymore. This whole thing is a riddle full of confusing. I just need to get her back.
