4.5 Stars!!!!

ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

So I have been remiss in not reading the Shaft on Tour series (and I have already taken steps to rectify that), but even without the background knowledge on some of the characters, it was easy to get wrapped up in this story and I loved it.

The relationship between Kionna and Luke had angst, but mainly because she didn't want to let herself get to close to him, especially due to her current job situation. Regardless, they end up together

OK, So I liked this book a lot but didn't quite love it. Not sure what it was but I had a hard time fully investing in the storyline and for me it just didn't quite keep my interest. I will however continue with the next book :)
I freaking love Cat Mason and with each book of hers I read I become her stalker more and more (haha) If you haven't yet read her Shaft on Tour series trust me when I say....its a MUST read and you will not regret it!! It is in this series that you are first introduced to Luke but this book can be read as a standalone so if you haven't read them yet no biggie but you are totally missing out :) Luke Hanlon is the brother to Chase who is married to Hunter Chesterfield from the band Shaft.

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, suspense, crazy stalker, secrets, betrayal, suspense, murder, and heartbreak.

This is Ki and Luke’s story. Ki is a dancer but her dream was cut short after an accident. She still dances but not the way she wants to. Luke meets Ki as she is the neighbor to his mother. They are drawn to each other. Luke was betrayed before so he is not really looking for someone. He is drawn to Ki even though he fights it he keeps going to her. The
Another fab Cat Mason story! Really loved this book, but could kick myself for not reading it sooner! Although having waited it does mean, not having to wait too long to get my hands on Mitch and Shelby's story which is due to be released in a couple of weeks.

As for this story, I was hooked from the start, and now completely adore Luke, and all his caring ways. I also loved his friends and work colleagues at Artistic Pricks, especially Shelby, who did come across in ways as a female version of

Never read anything by this author until now and man have i been missing out. This story is romantic filled with action and humour as well as moments of sadness. This book is about a romance that grows over time, and there is plenty of action for the characters individually and together. I loved how the romance grew it was more honest and real to me than those instant sparks type. Luke is totally hot and so a great book boyfriend. Plenty of drama, romance and action a perfect read and ...more

This was great! I had read a couple other books by Cat (her MC series) and saw this one on sale so I picked it up. I loved Luke and Ki. Both struggling in their own ways, but almost like their bodies recognized each other, there was no other option but for them to be together.
I loved that there was a bit of suspense as a secondary storyline, trying to figure out who is threatening Ki and why.

“Every night that I slip into bed with her and hold her while we sleep is a double edged sword. While it is torture for my ever-aching hard-on, I love every second of how simple it is. I crave it, those moments alone with her.”

I was so excited to hear that Luke was gettin a book/spin off series from the Shaft on Tour series. I abso LURVE that series and the authors so it was a no-brainer to read this from her as well.

This is so much bigger than you and me. You can't fight it an more than you can fight the gravity that keeps you from flying.

Luke has always lived his life for others, always trying to make sure that everyone else was taken care of and never spend much time worried about himself. He has finally come to realize that sort of life is boring, non-fulfilling and lonely. He has friends, he has family but he just lives life going though the motions until...

This is the first Artistic Pricks novel by Cat Mason. It follows the tattoo owner Luke Hanlon; if you've read Cat's Shaft on Tour series you'll know him as Hunter's wife Chase's big brother, as his tattoo parlour was where the band went to get inked in Chase Me.

Luke is quiet but serious man; he adores books and art but drives a bad-ass car. He is the epitome of don't judge a book by its cover. He is a natural Leader and those ways follow into over-protectiveness of those he loves versus his

5 Sizzling Stars!

Ok so I am a HUGE fan of this author. I ran across her Shaft on Tour series a few months back and I was blown away. Her books are sweet, sexy, naughty, angsty, full of drama, emotional,makes you shed a tear or two, and always have one sexy, alpha, sweet leading man that will become a top book boyfriend! And this book and start to a new series is no different! Spinning off from our rock star boys, she has a new series with characters you just might remember!

This book was amazing.

This book is a spin off from the Shaft on Tour series. You may or may not want to read that series. In my opinion not reading Shaft does not take away from this book in the slightest but while Shaft is very fun and full of laughs, this book is in no way similar. We get to see a much deeper side from Cat Mason with Gravity.

Luke is pure sex on a stick. His character is one that you want to pull from the book and run to the nearest wedding chapel and get hitched. He is everything one would want in

Well where do I begin? First off let me say that I absolutely love Cat Mason. Her Shaft on Tour Series is incredible and a MUST READ. This is where you are introduced to Luke Hanlon. I fell in love with him in Chasing Me (Shaft on Tour Book#3) What I can say is after finishing Chasing Me I was waiting on pins and needles to read Luke's story.
When Gravity was released I was ecstatic. I stopped all I was reading so that I could fall in love with my book

His best friend Mitch is going through a tough time and keeps getting himself in trouble, mostly getting drunk at the local strip club and causing a scene.

OMG!! This book was so incredibly brilliant, I am still coming down from my high from finishing it! My heart was beating so fast towards the end!
This is Luke Hanlon's story, owner of Artistic Pricks tattoo shop, brother to Chase! If you have read Cat’s incredible Escaping Me trilogy then you know she is married to Hunter Chesterfield from the band Shaft!! Hence his story being brought to life. And what an amazing story too.

This is my first book from Cat Mason but it definitely will not be my last! I am hooked on her writing. This is a spin off to her Shaft on Tour series but I had no problem reading it without reading those. It refers to a lot of characters from that series but not enough that I couldn't follow the story.
I could not put this book down. I read it straight through in one sitting and am wanting more. It was emotional, suspenseful, and sexy as hell. The characters are so well written that you feel

This is the first book of Cat Mason’s I have read. Also it’s the first book in the Artistic Pricks Series. This seems like it is a spin off from her other series. At the start of this book, I felt like I was missing some of the background story with Luke and his sister and with Cam. Once I got past that part, I loved the story. I honestly was wrong about who I thought the stalker was. That doesn’t happen often. I usually figure it out

In this first person narrator story, the main character is a tattoo artist that has had his heart broken and doesn't realize it. Or maybe he does? His friend Mitch is heartbroken that Luke's sister is marrying someone else and is off on tour with the band. Once again, Luke and Skinner are rescuing Mitch from a strip club. Who is Kionna? I was not expecting to find out who Kionna was! What happens that brings Kionna into Luke's life? Luke and Mitch own Artistic Pricks Ink. Something happened to ...more

We met Luke Hanlon in the Shaft on Tour series, and I was super excited he was getting his own book! Luke has always put others, especially his family, first in his life. Now that his sister Chase is finally settling down, Luke realizes that he feels lonely. He wants to find that special someone to share his life with and finally make himself happy. He doesn't have the best of relationships with his mother and gets a call from her next door

We met Luke Hanlon in the Shaft on Tour Series because Artistic Pricks was where the guys of Shaft went to get their tats done and Luke was the one that had a thing for Cam. His sister is also Chase from Chasing Me (she’s the one with Hunter). Gravity is Luke and Kionna’s story.

Luke is a great character, from his flaws, to his bad-ass car, to his over-protectiveness of those he loves. I absolutely found myself swooning over him. Kionna is keeping some secrets and has a few run ins with danger,

Not only is this a book with romance, a hot alpha and some intense craziness but it is impossible to put down!
Luke is a keeper. He does everything for everyone. So loving and selfless. Sometimes it's hard to imagine him as not only a tattoo artist but a shop owner. Having hardships in his childhood, he puts everyone before himself.
Kionna had dreams of becoming a Vegas show girl when one accident in opening night took that dream from her. She has

When tattoo artist Luke sets his eyes on his mother's neighbour, he has to have her. She has the biggest heart and a huge amount of sass and character. Kionna is a dancer but more of the exotic kind as her traditional dance career was sidelined by an injury. When she dances now she conceals her true identity and never engages with the men at the club. As Luke and Kionna grow closer, this part of her life becomes like a noose around her neck as she keeps it secret and someone else doesn't want ...more
