My military discharge was only a year ago and all I want is to do tattoos and live my life, put my old scars and previous sins behind me. But it turns out my oldest wound can still inflict fresh agony.
Her name is Celeste, she was my first everything, and those feelings haven’t died.
The problem is, I have feelings for someone else now too, and I don’t know if Celeste would understand…
Leo is his name, the inked-up gangbanger who visits my shop for new tattoos every Saturday like clockwork.
And just to complicate this clusterf*ck that is my life now, Leo is also in love with Celeste.
Both are off limits, and I know it. He’s straight. I’m not. And she’s the daughter of one of the most dangerous men in the western hemisphere. But fate seems to keep throwing them in my path, torturing me with the one thing I want but can’t have.
Until the night Leo comes to me with a proposal, and a request I never expected to hear spills from his lips. But even one night with them would be worth risking everything.
Ophelia Bell is an author i’ve been wanting to read for a while now,and Mad Dog sounded intriguing. So,when she offered a copy in return for an honest review,i didn’t have to think twice…. And now that i’ve finished Mad Dog,i can say for sure i’m going to read the others in this series,because it’s hot! Maddox “Mad Dog” has come a long way from the boy that was beaten up by the thug Gustavo working for Celeste’s father Arturo. Fooling around with his young and innocent daughter was not something the man appreciated…. It didn’t stop him from loving her,but he’s kept his distance ever since he was discharged honorably from the Navy,and returned home. Leo,one of her bodyguards,now that’s a different story. He’s been a regular in his tattoo shop from the moment he started out,and a torturous temptation every time he requests new ink to be done. Knowing he’s working for Arturo makes him off-limits,but they have become very close friends. But when Leo confesses to him he’s in love with Celeste…. Mad Dog knows he could only dream of having one,let alone two. But life has a way of taking turns you don’t expect,and even if tragedy can’t be avoided,it does open up options…. Because after Mad Dog practically pushes Celeste to Leo,she’s not about to let him slip away. She knows he loves her ánd Leo….and the way Leo looks at Mad Dog gives her a reason to hope. With betrayal and death all around,the three need all the beauty they can find,that’s for sure! This was a rollercoaster ride that drew me in from the first page. And it didn’t let go until the very last. A story that makes me want to hear more….
