Publisher's BlurbColin Spencer is a tattoo artist with a past he’d prefer to keep a secret. Actually, he has a few secrets that he’d rather people didn’t know about, which is why Colin doesn’t do commitment. But when a shy sailor approaches him at the gym, Colin finds this guy pushing all his buttons.
Growing up in a conservative family, then escaping with the Navy, Daniel Moore is an unsure virgin who feels like he can’t share his true self with anyone. Seeing Colin—and his tattoos—at the gym are the sign Daniel needs to finally get those tattoos he’s always wanted, and maybe try his hand at flirting.
As Colin and Daniel spend more time together, their awkward hesitations turn into a deep passion neither expected. But with both men harboring secrets, will their relationship be able to survive their insecurities and become something beautiful?
Back Piece is a sexy, emotional journey of two people learning to love and finding acceptance for who they really are.
Back Piece by author L.A. Witt starts off the Skin Deep Inc Series. I really loved this story. Lots of great chemistry in this book between the characters. I also thought there was a ton of growth in both characters. They have issues but they grow beyond them in this story. I also love hot men in tatts and there are plenty of them in this story.
Colin goes to the Sea Side gym to work out. He is a tattoo artist. He has a stunning back tatt that draws the attention of our second character in this book, Daniel. Colin is very secure in who he is. He has worked hard to be who he is and is proud of that. He is also patient and kind. The type of man who needs his happy ending.
Daniel is cute and shy. He is in the Navy. Openly gay and accepted. I liked that about this story. So many paint military as hating gay people, I loved that this one had accepting characters. Good friends that encourage each other to be better.
Daniel decides he really likes Colin but is too shy to ask him out or anything. Don't worry his buddies help embarrass him enough to get him to at least ask for a tatt from Colin. Trust me I never knew tatts could be this sexy. While Daniel might be shy and in experienced Colin is more than willing to be his teacher in both tattoos and love. This story was hard to put down! I cannot wait for more from this series, the true romantic in me is screaming for more.
