Sometimes, you don't know what you're missing until you find it. Aela is a shy and quiet, University student with her future mapped out and doesn't think she could be happier- unless maybe if the hot guy she's crushing on from the gym would notice her existence. Not that she has time for a guy right now... Declan should be happy. His tattoo parlour is a growing success, he ...more

I believe this is the debut book for Ash Hosking and what a debut it is!! I loved the plot of this book but loved the characters more! They were great!! Aela was such a great girl! But Declan is where it was at! No offense Aela!! Who doesn’t love the tortured guy with the sexy tattoos? Declan was such a sweet caring guy with a big heart! The banter and play in this book is just adorable! I love it!!

I’m not sure if Hosking is from Australia? There was a bit of a lingo difference but I liked it. I

I’m a rambler I know I am I find it almost impossible to stop when I find something that absolutely love and so I will warn you know I am trying really, really hard not to waffle on!
I loved this book, I thought Aela was a great character out in the big wide world for the first time so to speak having left home and started and University. Young free and single she is living with her best friend Kara and settling into her new way of life, now all that seems fairly uneventful and in many respects

Aela is a shy, University student with a set course for her future. She is happy with her life, but maybe she could be happier if the super hot guy at the gym, she has a crush on, would notice her. As fate would have it, she literally knocks him over, which makes him sit up and notice her, so nothing will ever be the same. Declan is happy with his tattoo parlor's growing success, his pick of beautiful women, and being able to take care of his mom and little sister. But he finds himself out of so ...more

Wow!! 5 freaking wonderful stars!! This is a new favorite of mine and I can't wait for Book 2!!

Aela just moved out of her parents house and in with her bestie Kara. She is attending Uni and content. She caught a glance of hot tatted up man at her gym and now she can't wait to get back to the gym to spy on him again. A little crush what is that going to hurt?!?!

Declan is a sexy, tatted, muscular beast of a man. He doesn't need a woman in his life, he doesn't do relationships. Just hookups. His p
Reckless Readers
Aela is the good girl and of course Declan is the bad boy. What can you do but root for these two. Who doesn't love a hot guy with tattoos?! He's struggling with what he wants out of life when she literally falls into his lap. It's hilarious how embarrassed she gets but Dec just gets drawn in even more by it. When she decides to get a tattoo she didn't realize it was his place and it's another chance meeting moment that he doesn't let get by him. He has a way with art and words that have you swo ...more

Dec and Aela connect from their first meeting. I loved both their characters.
While Dec was this tattooed, sexy guy, Aela was the perfect soft and sweet female. But rather than the stereotype, Dec is a talented,hard working successful businessman who is running his own tattoo shop while Aela is young and intelligent young girl who is confident and wants to make a stand with her family and the world.
Both are sweet and perfect tog

4 Inky good stars!
I love the plot of this book. There's romance, action, hot loving, and conflict. Aela and Declan are made for one another and I couldn't help cheering them on while loving side character humor. There was a bit of confusion for me to start out with, due to Aussie lingo, but I finally got the gist of where the book was taking place further into the story. There were a few places I was worried about my love for the characters, but I had high hopes that this book would end

Draw Me In is the debut novel of Ash Hosking.

Ash has superbly blended sweetness and humour together with an edge of darkness throughout this novel. Thus giving the story a more realistic feel. Aela and Dec's characters were all the more relatable to because of this.
I found this to be quite refreshing.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next love story in the series.

This is one heck of a good read! If you enjoy the genre this story is one of the gems.

Declan, I love a tattooed man. Yum, he really is delicious and would like one for myself! Aela is a passionate female lead who I could connect with. Her character was real and she was intelligent, something that is often lacking in female characters. Loved that Draw Me In was written in two POV it allowed me to get to know Dec and Aela.
The other thing that makes this book special is the supporting characters w

Draw Me In by Ash Hosking gave falling in love a new meaning. This book was memorable, thrilling, passionate, and hard to put down. Ash Hosking did a great job giving us readers characters we would instantly want to know more about and fall in love with. A couple of workouts and a tattoo later helped Declan and Aela fall into each other’s arms. They aren’t living the life they are meant to live until they come into each other’s lives. Draw Me In takes you on a journey of finding yourself and dea ...more

I absolutely loved this book! 5 stars is kinda a big deal for me because I'm so picky with books but I can honestly say this was one of my favs!! The characters are so loveable, the connection felt real and it wasn't rushed as most books are! This book made me laugh, gush and sometimes a bit teary! It had everything in it that I love to read about! Thank you for a breath of fresh air to the romance world!! Can't wait for the second book!!
