He Will Always Bear the Scars
Undercover cop Clay Navarro left the Sultans biker gang a changed man. Its ringleaders may be awaiting trial, but he wears the memory of every brutal act he was forced to commit tattooed across his skin. He doesn't have space in his messed-up life for anything gentle--not now, maybe not ever. Dr. Georgette Hadley is drawn to the damaged stranger's pain, intimidated but intrigued by the warmth that lies beneath Clay's frightening exterior. But when the Sultans return looking for revenge, she finds herself drawn into the dirty underbelly of a life forged in violence...that not even her touch may be able to heal.
Blank Canvas Series: Under Her Skin (Book 1)By Her Touch (Book 2)In His Hands (Book 3)
This is the second book in the Blank Canvas series by Adriana Anders. You might recall that I read and reviewed Under Her Skin last week and I really enjoyed it and I have to say going into this I was a little nervous because you never know what the next book will be like well this did not disappoint. I loved it just as much as the first one.
I will be starting In His Hands the third book probably some time next week. I want to space out the books because I am not ready for this story to end.
With that being said, the books aren’t really a continuation where you need to read the previous book to follow along. I noticed that each story line or book is geared toward the main character and his or her storyline. Previous characters do make an appearance but not enough to where you would be how does this fit in etc
Our main character is Clay who is an undercover cop and he was in deep with a biker gang trying to get information out of the group so that he could bring the organization down. He is getting what he needs until someone snitches on him and the group take action to get him out of the picture and that means tattooing him and shooting him.
Thankfully he manages to escape with his life in tack but whats to get the reminders of what they did off of him before he goes back to testify. He is on the run and is constantly looking for his shoulder because he knows they will come looking for him. He realizes he can trust no one even those that he thought he once could.
He manages to escape to Blackwood, Virginia. He thinks he is far enough away that no one would think to look for him there. He knows that there is a dr who can help remove his tattoos and he is willing to pay any price to make it happen.
Normally George has a firm stance that you don’t mix business with pleasure but when she sees Clay come in asking for her help she can’t turn him away and makes after office appointments to help him remove this tattoos. The more she works on him the more she is intrigued by him.
Clay does a good job of holding her back as much as he can but slowly being around her he realizes he can’t and he will do anything to protect her from danger. But will he be able to protect her when the biker gang finally shows up? Does she realize how much her life could be in danger?
I was pretty much flying through this book because I had to know more and what was happening. This book was definitely a page turner for me. I can’t wait to dig into the third book very soon.
