Review: Ink by Elizabeth Hunter

Author: Elizabeth Hunter
Publication date: August 2018

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?

Ink is the first book in the 7th and Main series.  This is Emmie and Ox's story.  Emmie has returned to her small town home to sell her grandmother's bookstore.  After having a change of heart, she decides to make a go of revamping the business.  Ox is in need of a space for his tattoo business, and Emmie has the space.  What could go wrong?  This is the first book I have read by this author and I know it won't be my last.

I thought this was a cute yet steamy romance.  If you are into slow burn love stories, then this is the book for you.  The chemistry between Emmie and Ox was really intense.  I loved it.  They were perfect for each other. They both had baggage.  What I enjoyed most was the way they called each other on their BS and worked things out.  The secondary characters were a lot of fun as well.  I can't wait to read their books next.
