A biker. A tattoo artist. A love to last a lifetime.
Maddox Cross has always had to be tough. When his father went to jail for murder, the teenager took care of his sister and mother. Now on his own and working security at a night club, Maddox wants to become a tattoo artist-a dream that comes closer to reality when he falls for the hottest, most tatted woman he’s ever seen. She’s wild and beautiful, and Maddox will do anything to be with her.
Bee Malone came to town to open up her new tattoo parlor, Masquerade. Since being kidnapped as a young girl, Bee has had trouble getting close to anyone. But when she meets Maddox, she sees that under his hard biker’s body is the sensitive soul of an artist. What starts out as a sizzling one-night stand soon becomes so much more.
Bee wants Maddox to join her tattoo business, but letting him into her life means revealing all her most intimate secrets. And as the past begins to intertwine with her present, Bee fears their love may not be as permanent as their ink . . .
Whoa! (Seriously, that’s what I thought!!) Nyrae Dawn blew me away with Charade. I was fond of Façade. But Masquerade…I fell head over heels in love with this book!
Masquerade is book 3 of the Games Series. I recommend reading the other books so you’ll understand the back story. Bee and Maddox are my favorite couple of this series. Maddox is so dark and deep. I loved his passion for drawing and his desire to become a tattoo artist. Bee totally understood him. She has one of the coolest (and heart breaking) back stories. It was just so unique, and I thought it was neat how she used her past experiences as inspiration for her name and tattoos. Maddox and Bee’s struggles are so raw and painful; I felt so broken for them.
I don’t understand it. Don’t get how people can love someone and want them to be someone different or love them and hurt them. – Bee
This is a beautifully well written book that answers Bee’s question- “How do you love like that?”
My Maddow and Bee-
