Sienna Taylor walked into Aspen Ink looking for a temporary escape. Instead, she found River Madden, the gorgeously talented and impossibly moody owner of the shop. One look in her big, dark eyes makes him desperate to possess her, his need to mark her luscious skin a primal distraction.
One touch of his needle sends electricity rocketing between them, and by the time he's

Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends)

This author is hit or miss with me (mostly miss lately) but I thought I would give this one a go. Alas, it was another miss for me. I just didn't connect with either character and spent most of the book bored out of my mind.

SIDE NOTE: It takes WAY longer than 24 hours for nipple piercings to heal. So piercing her nipples and then the next day "plucking" them during sex would most likely earn the person doing the plucking a good swift kick to the nutsack...just saying.

River Madden is the hot sexy moody owner of Aspen Ink, he lives for tattooing and creating art. What he doesn't like is dealing with customers, he's not interested in life stories or the reason behind the tattoos he just wants to work.
Until the day Sienna Taylor walks into his shop wanting a tattoo and then everything changes, he wants her story and he wants her.
Sienna isn't at all what River was expecting, it soon becomes apparent that there's more to her, a darkness and spirit that calls to hi

Dirty talker tattoo artist, who can resist? Aria Cole gave once again, her insta-love, super HOT, smutty goodness. These two were perfect for one another, and their chemistry was palpable. And those sexy times? Wow... <3 <3 <3 <3

Ps. I can't not mention this gorgeous cover, that's one stunningly sexy pic, and one fav from this author!

River has owned Aspen Ink for years, and though he loves the creative aspect of his job, but social side requiring talking is not his favorite. That aversion extends to his employee, tattoo artist Jericho. River is unfortunately being forced, yet again, to listen as Jericho shares the story of another ONS. If it wasn't for the man's unparalleled talent with ink, he would've never been hired. Thankfully, River's next client arrives, surprisingly, as he's usually booked months in advance and has n ...more

4 Fate filled stars.

A hot,quick Insta-love story with substance.

I loved these books from Aria Cole, yes I love getting lost in a book but sometimes you just want a quick read and these books always satisfy my reading appetite.

It's like Aria takes out all the good bits you normally love in a contemporary romance read and puts it all in one book giving the reader all they want.

Under Her Skin is about Sienna and River, Sienna goes to River for a tattoo and it's insta-love and Lust at first sigh

Under Her Skin by Aria Cole is the latest by this author and it is another hot romance read. I found this story to be another home run by this author. Talk about smoking hot, sexy alphas, and sweet innocent heroines. Sienna Taylor and River Madden make this story because they instantly click and the chemistry is so right. River is a tattoo artist and Sienna comes into his shop to cover up a scar. From a tattoo to that forever romance. What a fabulous romance. There is this heat and this immediat ...more

Under Her Skin

Loved this one. The moment Sienna walked into River’s tattoo shop, he knew he was in trouble. Fate had brought them together in many ways. One of my favorite things about this book was River. His feelings for Sienna were so strong, but he knew she needed time. He took his time with her, but the moment he had her, there was no going back.

-safe read
-H celibate for several years

I know a lot of people don't like insta love or insta lust or whatever, but sometimes I just want to escape into a short quick and steamy romance
And this one I loved

I loved Sienna, shy but also not a walk over with a filthy mouth on her, and River gorgeous tattoo artist, what's not to love. Sweet, Hot and totally sexy read

Thanks Aria Cole, loved it

“I want to cover your skin in my tattoos.” He breathed against my neck, hands trailing up my arms. “My art all over the most beautiful canvas ever to walk the earth.”

Aria Cole has a way of mixing a little bit of sweetness with a lot of pleasure to make an explosion. I loved the initial conversation between Sierra and River, and the buildup of emotions was- oh so hot.
Sienna Taylor’s rebellious nature brought her right into the arms of River Madden. The girl is mature and smart, but young. Too i

I received an advanced copy of Under Her Skin to review and I am so happy I did. Aria Cole is one of my all time favorite authors and I have never been disappointed by her and Under Her Skin is no different. River and Sienna I am completely in love with them. Another great alpha steamy insta love romance!!! The chemistry between the two is smoking, and couldn't get enough!!
This was a sweet and sexy quick read. River and Sienna had an instant connection and you could see the chemistry right away. I love a hot tattooed hero and I liked that Sienna was no pushover but still had that shy innocent vibe. Very enjoyable!
2.5 stars. Felt no connection with H and h.

I think I've said it before but IMO Aria Cole has been hit or miss lately but I definitely liked this one. River Madden is 29 years old and two years ago he opened his tattoo shop called Aspen Ink. He's an artist and he loves to create but what he doesn't like so much is taking to his customers. Sienna is 19 years old and a tragedy has thrown her family and her home into her own private hell. When she walked into Aspen Ink she had no idea how her life would change and how much she would love it. ...more

Sienna wanted something to cover a memory that broke her heart. Something to give it a little meaning never knowing that she was going to meet the one that would change her life forever. And at all places a tattoo shop.
River had bought his tattoo shop a few years back and he loved it but there was still something missing. He just needed to find it never knowing that it or she was going to find him. Coming to him to get a tattoo and he was going to give her his heart. This book has it all and I

Quick read when you're in the mood for a hot, insta-love.

River is just working at his tattoo parlor when Sienna walks in with her indigo eyes wanting a tattoo done. River is booked MONTHS in advance but Sienna wants this tattoo to close a sad chapter in her life so she waits. But she wasn't expecting hot River to do her tattoo.

River immediately takes Sienna under his wing and determines she's going to be his. And makes sure she's safe.

Another hot alpha who I loved!!
