Colin Spencer is a tattoo artist with a past he’d prefer to keep a secret. Actually, he has a few secrets that he’d rather people didn’t know about, which is why Colin doesn’t do commitment. But when a shy sailor approaches him at the gym, Colin finds this guy pushing all his buttons.
Growing up in a conservative family, then escaping with the Navy, Daniel Moore is an unsure virgin who feels like he can’t share his true self with anyone. Seeing Colin—and his tattoos—at the gym are the sign Daniel needs to finally get those tattoos he’s always wanted, and maybe try his hand at flirting.
As Colin and Daniel spend more time together, their awkward hesitations turn into a deep passion neither expected. But with both men harboring secrets, will their relationship be able to survive their insecurities and become something beautiful?
Back Piece is a sexy, emotional journey of two people learning to love and finding acceptance for who they really are.
I can truly say that L.A. Witt’s stories always delight me, and this is no exception. Back Piece is a hot story about a tattoo shop owner who falls in love with a sailor from the Navy. When this particular sailor is wanting a tattoo not only Colin is astonished. Daniel comes from a conversative family who believes being gay is a sin and something ungodly. His own sexuality is giving him trouble and he is devided. But not only Daniel is carrying negative thoughts and a great burden, Colin has also his secrets. When Colin’s secret was revealed in the book I was actually really astonished but it was so perfectly put in the book.
The way how L.A. Witt creates her character is as always marvelous. You are captured by their stories, you feel with them, your heart aches for them and you are also surprised by the revealings.
I really love the chemistry between the two guys. Although Daniel is a virgin and hasn’t this much experience he knows what he wants and his intercourses with Colin are super sexy. ❤
L.A. Witt also makes her character really “real” in giving them a personility, the way the two guys banter and make jokes is sweet and you laugh so many times about their mockings. You also like the side-character and minor ones who gives the story its depth.
I really was eager to read page after page, the way how L.A. Witt displayed Colin’s and Daniel’s story was sexy and the fact that they had a connection right from the start is the icing on the cake. With the information about tattooing it also had an informative character (for me). 🙂 And the tattoo Colin is working on Daniel’s back is marvelous. I would love to see the inspiritional pictures of it. 🙂
5 out of 5 stars for this book. I’ll re-read is soon, I guess. 🙂
