★★★ 3 Stars ★★★

I did like this, it was sweet and fluffy and a very pleasant read.

Unfortunately for me, the chemistry which was there at the beginning seemed to fizzle out.

Dax, an ex-soldier, has returned from battle with the scars to prove it both physically and mentally. He is in the closet and wants to start a new life and find out who he is outside of the confines of the military. He bumps into Beck one day and discovers that he is a tattoo artist, which is great because that's exactly what he is looking to do.

The tattoo scene was the best part of the book for me, the chemistry was smoking and I was really excited to read on. After this though, things move on quite quickly and there is a lot of back and forth - neither one is sure they are ready for a commitment due to numerous issues they are both having to deal with in their lives at the present moment but they keep being drawn to each other and so they don't really know if it's the right time to pursue a relationship or not.

However, their moments together were cute and they made a great couple. Overall, I thought it was okay :)
