Seventeen-year-old Brooklyn Hall has had her eye on uber sexy tattoo artist, Six Jagger, for a while. There’s only one problem—she’s pretty sure he doesn’t even know she exists. A friend of her older brother, Six is five years older than her. Plus, there’s the pesky fact that he’s had a steady girlfriend for months. Still, even though she knows there’s no chance for her, she can’t seem to let the fantasy go.
Six Jagger has had a thing for Brooklyn Hall since the first time he laid eyes on her a year ago. However, after finding out her age, he wiped her off his list of possibilities. That should’ve been the end of it, but for some reason, he can’t stop watching and admiring her from afar. Happy that he’s successfully maintained his distance, all that changes on the night Brooklyn walks into Inked Edges, asking him for an illegal tattoo. After that, all his carefully constructed barriers come tumbling down, taking them on an explosive ride of lust, passion, and desire.
All’s well that ends well, right? Too bad that wasn’t the end, but merely the beginning…
ADD IT TO GOODREADS.
I’ve been reading Lacey Weatherford’s novels for a little while now and Allure is probably her sexiest one. Though, it’s not my favorite.
I enjoyed reading it a lot and the relationship between Six and Brooklyn is very cute and hot. Though, I’m missing the real emotional stuff here. I was addicted to this book and was eager to finish it, but at the same time, I felt more the steam than the emotions. At one point in the book it bothered me because it was supposed to be that gigantic mess that I think I should have felt in my heart. And I didn’t.
Six and Brooklyn are really great lead characters and there’s not one more weak than the other. They both have their strengths and fears and I like that. I enjoyed the dual POV of the book, and absolutely loved the first half of the book.
The second half is a little bit more disappointing in comparison. I was expecting something big close to the end, something that would have made me feel more the angst and the pain the characters were going through. In the end, it fell a little bit short.
Though, the writing style is flowing, the characters interesting and in the end I had a really great time with them. I still think that some things were a little bit repetitive, some aspect of their past and their hang ups overlooked and the emotions too downplayed.
For example, I couldn’t actually see the impact of Brooklyn’s brother’s death on the characters. Granted, it happened before where the book started, but just one week prior! I would have loved to see more of these emotions supposedly warring inside the characters.
In the end, I enjoyed this book as a summer read, something to chill and have fun with when you’re in the mood for something a little steamy. Maybe I was expecting too much emotion wise, but in the end it’s still a really great book.
Who read this book already? What do you think of Six? He’s on my list of book boyfriends. 😉
