Back Cover Blurb:

After eight years in prison, Levi Rush is finally out and back on the gritty streets of Detroit to claim the future he was owed. A future that includes the one woman he’s wanted for years—his former best friend Rachel. She’s the reason he went inside and if getting her to do what he wants means buying the building that houses her tattoo studio and using it as leverage, then that’s what he’ll do. Because if there’s one thing he’s learned inside it’s that if you want to win, you have to play dirty.

Rachel Hamilton is a tattoo artist and one hell of a tough girl. Detroit is her home, and she’s determined to make it a better place. But her plans are threatened when her old friend Levi reappears and gives her an ultimatum: she gives herself to him body and soul, or else she and her business are out on the street. Levi’s got no room in his heart for anything but anger and the lust he’s been carrying around for so long. But the only thing stronger than the secrets of their shared past is their fiery attraction to each other . . .

My Review:

This novel is intense on so many levels.  Ashenden definitely kept my heart pumping throughout.  From the tension between the characters to the events that they lived, each aspect left me reeling.  And the heated chemistry that makes the pages sizzle?  It was un-ignorable and absolutely brilliantly written.  Ashenden's vivid and vibrant descriptions not only bring this world to life but also transports readers into the middle of an exciting and emotionally turbulent tale.  This novel broke my heart and had me in tears, but it's also one of the most rewarding tales I've read this year.

This is definitely a novel that will tear you down and then put you back together while also taking you through one hot relationship built on an interesting foundation.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone, whether or not you've read the 1st novel of the series.
