Serious Ink (Inked in the Steel City #5) by Ranae Rose

LOVE this cover!

Hard times mean hard choices, but falling for Noah Wilder is easy. Beneath his suit and tie, he’s seriously inked and seriously irresistible. When he walks into the Hot Ink Tattoo Studio, the attraction between him and studio receptionist Zoe is mutual – and fierce. And after the opportunity to ditch her demeaning second job to work for him instead arises, suddenly he’s her boss … and much more. With lines blurred in every way imaginable, can she balance passion and professionalism with doing what’s best for her struggling family?

Attraction is a powerful thing. So is former fighter Noah’s drive to make his growing mixed martial arts promotion company succeed, and if business happens to coincide with pleasure, so much the better. Tattooed beauty Zoe Ramsey is all his when she’s not working at Hot Ink – for twenty hours a week, anyway. When circumstances bring them close faster than they ever imagined, can he make her see that he’s just as serious about her as he is about the business he’s poured his heart and soul into?

My review:
I am a huge fan of this loosely connected series. Most of these books can be read stand alone but fair warning if you read one you will want to read them all. 
I felt particularly close to these characters.  Noah is a sweet tough guy in a suit trying to make a go of his new business. He is a “fixer”.  One of those guys who sees a problem and wants to make it better especially if the person with the problem is someone he cares about.  Zoe is struggling to do it all herself.  She doesn’t want someone to “fix it” she wants someone to stand by her side and encourage her. 
Both of these folks are not at a place in their lives where they are looking for love but it finds them and you get to be along for the ride. Another sweet and sexy story from Ranae Rose.   

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy from the author in return for a fair and honest review.  I honestly enjoyed this quick, sexy, fun read.  Thanks so much Ms. Rose.
