415 Ink: Book Two
A savior lies in the heart of every good man, but sometimes only love can awaken the man inside the savior.
The world’s had it out for San Francisco firefighter Mace Crawford from the moment he was born. Rescued from a horrific home life and dragged through an uncaring foster system, he’s dedicated his life to saving people, including the men he calls his brothers. As second-in-command of their knitted-together clan, Mace guides his younger siblings, helps out at 415 Ink, the family tattoo shop, and most of all, makes sure the brothers don’t discover his darkest secrets.
It’s a lonely life with one big problem—he’s sworn off love, and Rob Claussen, one of 415 Ink’s tattoo artists, has gotten under his skin in the worst way possible.
Mace’s world is too tight, too controlled to let Rob into his life, much less his heart, but the brash Filipino inker is there every time Mace turns around. He can’t let Rob in without shaking the foundations of the life he’s built, but when an evil from his past resurfaces, Mace is forced to choose between protecting his lies and saving the man he’s too scared to love.
Love comes from the most unexpected places
Savior by Rhys Ford was given to me for an honest review.
This is the second installment of the 415 Ink series featuring Mace Crawford, part owner of the tattoo shop and firefighter and Rob Claussen, tattoo artist at said shop. This story was heart wrenchingly beautiful. Mace is trying to keep his place in his sewn together family because of his past he has hidden from them while also fighting his biggest nightmare on his own, but what Mace doesn’t realize is that he isn’t alone because Rob helps fight Mace’s demons in a stealth and loving way only he can.
With Chinatown as a backdrop I swear I can hear the background noise from Mace’s window and feel the rain on my head. There were moments where I wanted to cry and laugh but one part actually made my heart stop the story was just so engaging you can’t help but fall in love with the main characters and the patchwork family all over again. I really loved this book and can’t wait for more.
