Storm’s younger cousin.
Vandal’s little brother.
You’ve met him in the background.
The sweet one. 
The nice one. 
The one they can all rely on.
The good one.
He’s a tattoo artist. He plays metal and classical music - on the violin.
He’s got a body built for sin.
He’s 24.
In comes Ivy. She’s a 36 year old single mom who hasn’t dated in 18 years. 
All she wanted was a tattoo.
She got a helluva lot more :) 
Being good has never been so bad.

Ivy is 37 HR Manager with 2 kids (Macy 18 and Tommy 7) she has been married for 18 years. 

Lukas is a 24 years old tattoo artist with a heart of gold. He can play the violin beautifully and likes antiques. He has abandonment issues and his past is not super pretty.

Ivy decides its time to do things that she always wanted to do but her cheating husband would not let her. She goes and gets a tattoo. Meeting Lukas changed her and everyone's life. He is a beautiful force. He is loyal, loving, brilliant, talented and treats her like a princess. 

Lukas & Ivy upon meeting were instantly attracted to one another. Ivy has a huge problem with the age factor. But after spending some time with Lukas, she understands that he is not your average 24 year old he is a man and has been very responsible and reliable most of his life.

Ivy's EX-husband is not happy that she has gotten the attention of a younger man and sets out to destroy the couple. I mean why is she allowed to be happy without him, right (such an ass). 

After some convincing on Lukas part to give him a chance to prove himself the couple faces a huge obstacle. With some time to think over the incident they figure out how to move forward. Lukas has a huge favor to ask of Ivy and it will mean their future will happen together or they will have to part ways.

I like the partnership of Ivy and Lukas and thought they fit well together. There age was not a factor for me in this story. They were a great couple and made since. Macy is a little brat but you still like her in the end.

Rating: 4 STARS 

Happy Reading!
