Beautiful second chance story!
This is the second book in the Thorn Tattoo Studio Series, but it can be listened as a standalone. I love Luciano and Melanie's story. This is Luciano's second chance love story, after his ex's death. Melanie is a strong woman, so understanding. She makes all it took to help Luciano to go ahead with his life and finding love again. This story is believable and so beautiful. There is a beautiful and realistic HEA. I love Leslie North's writing and I love her HEA endings! I can't wait to listen to the next and last story in the Series. The narration was great and easy to listen. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Great Installment–I Cannot Wait for Book 3, Bloom!
This is the 2nd installment of the Thorne Tattoo Studio series. Luciano DeRose lost the love of his life. After the traumatic event, he fled Las Vegas and the memories of her. However, his brother needs him to come back and hold down the fort at the family tattoo shop.
Melanie Noel is Luciano's assistant. Luciano is so talented that he is in demand for shows and conferences all over the country. It is Melanie's job to organize his travel, hotels and anything else he needs to make his nomadic lifestyle flawless.
As they both returned to Las Vegas, Melanie is determined to help Luciano face and work through his demons, whether he wants to or not. She loves him and wants him to live life in the present and not the past.
EM Carberry has a wonderful voice but I found his performance so very slow. I had to turn the speed to 1.5x. At regular speed it felt like the book was dragging on.
I am a huge fan of the Thorne Tattoo Studio series. The first book, Rose, received 5 stars from me for story & overall. Thorn is a stellar follow-up book. I hope to have the opportunity to listen to the final book in the series.
Thorn is a 5 star listen in the categories of story & overall. The performance receives 3.5 solid stars from me.
*I received this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a great romance with some mature situations and doesn't mind a bit of strong language.
