{eARC Minute Review} The Fractured Heart (Second Circle Tattoos #2) by Scarlett Cole

The Fractured Heart (Second Circle Tattoos, #2)
The Fractured Heart (Second Circle Tattoos #2) by

All things, when placed under pressure, eventually break or leave a mark.

Tattoo artist Brody "Cujo" Matthews knows how to keep things simple. In life and in love. Abandoned as a child by a mother who refused to stick around to raise three boys she didn't want, he's intent on staying clear of complicated women. The only things complicated in Cujo’s life are the killer tattoos he designs and inks. That all changes when he’s asked to help organize his best friend Trent's engagement party, which means working with Trent's fiancée's best friend, Drea, the definition of high maintenance and sizzling curves. And the one woman he doesn’t want to walk away from.

Andrea "Drea" Caron is broke and tired. After years of caring for her ailing mom, she's at the end of her rope trying to manage the piling medical bills, two jobs, and a life placed on hold. She certainly doesn’t need the added frustration of a sexy playboy tattoo artist messing up her best friend’s engagement party or her carefully balanced life. But when Drea witnesses the abduction of a woman from the café she works at, she can’t help but turn to Cujo who’s determined to prove to Drea that he’s someone she can count on forever…but as they attempt to bring the truth to light, someone is working to bring that forever to a sudden, deadly halt.

{Rating} 3/5 - I liked it

We got to know both Cujo and Drea in the first novel, Strongest Steel. They were both great friends, supportive and generous, and here, in their own story, they're even more awesome. Both are the drop everything for you, give you the shirt off their back, type.

Both Cujo and Drea have been through a lot and still bear the scars. Their scars color their views of the world and directly impact their relationship. The romance develops slowly, starting with barbs and sniping, but turns into a relationship that can last.

Along with the romance there is an element of mystery and danger that added some excitement. If you like your romance with a little suspense and drama check out the books of Second Circle.
