Publisher's Summary

Colin 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?  

Contains mature themes.

DNF for me

The narrator gave the two main characters fem and aristocratic voices. It just did not work for me. Its a sailor and a tattoo artist. The whole audiobook was just not working for me. I gave up half way through.

Just Okay

It’s hard to review this book because I just could not relate to the characters. The characters were not memorable to me and I didn’t “feel” the love. The story was not bad, it was just not entertaining. I read and listen to a lot of MM romance and yes this story is not the worst but it is very forgettable.

Wow!

Love Colin and David, they are so cute together. With the problems that they must overcome as individuals to be able to come together. Just great book.

A good story

This wasn't my favorite by LA Witt. I liked Daniel and Collin together, but didn't get all the feels I like with a building new relationship that leads to love. I also would have liked an epilogue to see what happened with Daniel's family. The story flowed well though and I always love a first time troupe so I did enjoy Daniel's first experiences. They were sweet and Collin was very caring with him.
The narrator was fabulous though, as he always is!

fantastic and sensitive

This book depicts the growing love of two contemporary men who find each other in different stages of life - one, Collins, seasoned tattoo artist who has been around the block of relationships, another, Daniel, who is just discovering the freedom of living away from his family with their deeply seated Christian beliefs and homophobia.

Their budding relationship is challenged over and over with their inner struggles - Collins own eating disorders, and Daniel's conflict with wanting to live his own life yet fear his parents ever finding out.

The relationship developes in a beautiful, natural manner that allows you to slowly understand each character and root for their happiness and HEA.

Michael Ferraiulo skillful narration sucks you smoothly into the flow of thoughts, actions and descriptions.

The writer gives apt descriptions of the unique background of each character, whether Collin's past occupation, how he experiences his eating disorders, or the different ways each character experiences their relationship.

There are many small insights into situations like the Daniel's struggle of wishing to keep his ties to his family despite how hurtful they can become towards him with their homophobic behaviour - without their knowing so.

This book gives you a safe feeling that the characters despite their struggles are going to find a way through, and sometimes that is just what you need from a book.

However, the HEA isnt without a cost and the characters each earn it for themselves and together and the end is a very satisfying one.

Back Piece

I was wanting books about tattoo artist and this was it (plus it was on audio) lol. It’s not my favorite trope, the adult person hiding in the closet, especially when that adult male is miserable and uncomfortable even being around his family. But, the author gave us two guys with issues who still manage to find love.

This was the first time I listened to this narrator and I thought he did a great job.
