As a walking advertisement for the tattoo shop she’s set up in a small Wyoming town, India Ellison is well acquainted with preconceived notions. Despite the odd looks, life is good. She’s clean and sober, dotes on her sister’s kids and, best of all, spends most of her free time with her best buddy, Colt McKay. Reformed bad boy Colt never expected three years of sobriety to lead to three years of abstinence. Curbing his craving for booze and random sexual encounters, however, is nothing compared to the ever-increasing craving for his hot-tempered, hot-bodied best friend, India. Too bad she’s his A.A. sponsor. Too bad she hasn’t a clue that he’s been head-over-bootheels in love with her from day one. After an unexpected, steamy interlude, all India can think about is riding the sexy cowboy instead of her motorcycle. Or are they risking their friendship for a fling that could burn them both?


We met Colt since the second book and watched as he struggled to overcome the alcohol problem after a series of mistakes and Dag death really affected him while all the rest of the family was more worried about themselves. It’s really interesting for me to see the two troublemaker together in this book after three years as best friends the actually decided to jump in a relationship.

Never saw them together actually, because Colt is wild and I though he needed a nice girl to balance him, but after Lorelei started in the emotions and I realized the best person for him is really India, they spent some many times together and know a lot about the other that the only thing missing was the sex, and oh boy that was amazing.

The interesting part was how the family don’t know Colt at all and India made them aware that he was suffering and things were really difficult and they didn’t help any moment, it’s really strange because they always bond and only Kade and Keely were supportive.

Since India suffered and her life was really difficult and the overdose made her stop and start over. So now she has a tattoo shop in this little town, so she’s kinda of a stranger to the town. Colt helped her and was the perfect guy.

This book was really good and the sex was ohm. Loved how Colt and India finally found their way in this life.
