It’s everything but business as usual.
Emmie Elliot hadn’t expected to come back to Metlin, California. She definitely didn’t expect to stay. She returned to her childhood home with a mission: Sell the building that housed her grandmother’s book store and move on with her life.
But life doesn’t always go according to plan.
To reopen her grandmother’s book shop, Emmie will need a hook. She’ll need a strategy. She’ll need an… Ox?
Miles Oxford doesn’t have much interest in quiet bookstore owners. He’s a tattoo artist without a space to work, and the last thing he wants is to get involved with anyone after his last disaster of a relationship. Work and pleasure don’t mix for Ox, but since he doesn’t have any interest in the cute girl with the bold business proposal, he should be safe from any awkward complications, right?
She sells ink. He tattoos it. Unusual? Yes. But a book shop/tattoo studio might be the ticket for both Emmie and Ox to find success on their own terms. As long as they keep their attention focused on business.
Just on business.
Now Live + Review: Ink by Elizabeth Hunter
There are a couple of authors that when they announce a new release I get absolutely giddy about and Elizabeth Hunter is one of them!! I first feel in love with her writings years ago and have kicked myself over the last couple of years as it seems like when she had a new release, I was not able to commit to finding the time to read! So many books so little time right!! So when her new contemporary romance Ink was announced I said I HAVE TO HAVE THIS BOOK!! I am so happy I did! Ink totally brought me back the feelings why I love Elizabeth Hunter so much. Her writing style is just so effortless. She is an amazing storyteller that has a knack for making you feel like you are just sitting around with your friends instead of reading. She is a natural! I just loved Ink and I cannot wait to see what others stories may unfold on 7th and Main!! This can be read as a standalone and is told in alternating points of views.
Emmie returns home to her small town to run her grandmother’s books store. She didn’t want to sell the property and looked at it as a way to be her own boss. She had plenty of space and already has income from the existing businesses. She wanted to have her book store be more than her grandmother’s store. She wanted to update it and be more than just a small town store. She just needed to find something that will bring customers in.
Enter Ox…. The hunky tattoo artist that just left his existing shop and the very public break up with that shop owner Ginger. Seeing how Emmie is space he does his best to convince Emmie to let him leave some of his things there until he finds a shop. The two end up brainstorming and decide to go into business together, a tattoo shop within a book store, what can go wrong!
Emmy and Ox must navigate the growing pains of a new business and along the way the pair find more than just a business plan. What happens when a budding relationship starts to bloom? When Ox’s family has an emergency his immediate reaction is to help them. But with a new business what does this say about his commitment. Will Ox and Emmie be able to navigate not only a new business but new feelings for each other? You will need to read Ink to find out!! This was a HUGE 5 star read and one I highly recommend!!
