    The best in the series!

    I'm a HUGE fan of Scarlett's work and each time she has released a new book I thought to myself, "There's no way she can top this one because that was brilliant." But boy was I wrong! The Purest Hook completely wrecked me! In a fantastic way, of course. So many emotions flowed through me during each of my reading sessions. One minute I'd be laughing because of something ridiculous that Dred, Trent, or Cujo said. The next I would be crying because of something tragic that happened in the past, or happy tears because of a beautiful moment that transpired between Dred and Pixie. And on several occasions, my voice of reason talked me down from throwing my brand new Kindle at the wall. Not to mention all the sexy times, Dred's REALLY good at sexy times! Sweet times too. In my personal opinion, The Purest Hook has surpassed the previous books in the Second Circle Tattoos Series. It is hands down her best work to-date! I look forward to many years and many more books from this amazingly talented author.

    The Purest Hook

    This tale was intensely emotional and wildly addictive. The plot was tight, creating a believable and intense story that didn’t let up. I enjoy the way that Cole transitions from romance to suspense, emotional to everyday fun. The fast paced plot never stagnated nor did it rush forward. I wasn’t simply drawn into this story but rather became part of the characters’ lives from the very 1st page. I was mesmerized by these characters and their lives. Pixie’s backstory is hard hitting but also very rewarding to read. I loved getting to know her in the present day. She’s the type of character that you can have fun with, even though she is going through something earth shattering. I love her sass & spunk. Dred’s story was no less raw & real. His reactions to everything were so off the cuff that he became so much more than simply a storybook character. I didn’t simply feel for him, but also fell in love with him as Cole dug deep into his past while also showing the caring, yet hard-headed individual that he is today. Surrounded by both of their adopted families, this cast of characters is definitely a hit. This novel was hot, like sizzling hot, and emotionally hard hitting. I love the seamless way that Cole draws everything together, creating not only a fantastic romance but also characters that will stick with you in the long run. This is definitely a novel that will stand the test of time and be loved time and time again by readers. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    Amazing

    Once again Scarlett Cole has blown me away with her ability to masterfully craft a story that grips my heart and sticks with me long after the last page has been read. Her characters are real, raw, and flawed yet striving to make the best of what life has given them and the H/h of this story are no different. Pixie literally owes her life to the guys at Second Circle. They found her when she was at her lowest and have been by her side every step of the way. Now she's living a quiet happy life and very happy. Dred Zander is bigger than life. He's the seriously sexy rock star that works with Trent on the TV show. The last thing Pixie needs is to be tempted by his sweet talk and washboard abs. Especially with all the paparazzi that follows him around. There are things in her past that need to stay firmly in the past. He's hard to deny though and before long she finds herself in the whirlwind that is his life. Will this be the best thing to ever happen to her or will it be the end of the new life she's built? This one should be on the top of everyone's must read list. I highly recommend it.

    can't-put-down romance

    I love the idea that these two people, who have been damaged by their pasts, are able to use their terrible experiences to give them insight into each other, turning it all into something wonderfully positive. They both have hang-ups, things that make having a relationship extremely difficult, but when they get together it creates something magical. Pixie lived through an absolutely devastating thing but managed to come out the other side, showing her strength and resilience. That’s not to say she doesn’t have her scars but lucky for her Dred is just the guy who has the understanding to help her work through them. And while I hurt for her, my heart also aches for what Dred went through growing up. I just want to cuddle the little boy that he was – alone, scared, and finding himself thrown into scary situations. The relationship between the men of Preload, the way they support each other and will do just about anything to make sure that that each of them feels comfortable, is spectacular. They have an unshakable bond forged in heartache and tested to show that it will last. And it’s just a notch down on the awesome scale from the romance between him and Pixie :) The way that he understands her and is willing to wait for her to be ready each step of the way is oh-so-sexy. Every time he calls her snowflake my heart sighs. I’m also ready to cuddle the grown up version of Dred but for an entirely different reason! I will say my only complaint is how vague Cole is about the things that Dred’s boys experienced. I understand that she wants the big reveals to happen during their own books, but that is one of those things that irritates me when reading a book. I’m not the most patient of people and I think that might have something to do with it :) – I want my answers and I want them now … I will give her props though because I am so very anxious to get my hands on the next book! And the next and the next! As with the other books in this series, there is an element of danger and suspense. It’s a great complement to the more emotional moments, helping to pull readers in and have them anxiously turning pages to find out how it all works out. I feel bad for these people to have so many horrible things happen to them but they have the strength and support they need to come out happy on the other side. Full of passion, humor and a massive amount of heartwarming goodness, this latest book in the Second Circle Tattoos series highlights how Scarlett Cole shines at creating can’t-put-down romances.

    The Perfect Hook!

    A simmering undercurrent of suspense, extreme life events and great writing abound in Scarlet Cole's third book in her Second Circle Tattoo's series, The Purest Hook. This author taps directly into your emotional core and infuses you with her sensitive writing. With a natural ease that cannot be taught in expressing her characters deepest feelings a Scarlet Cole book is one amazing experience. The leads in this book, Dred and Pixie, will win you over as they build their relationship and create their perfectly flawed family. Yes bad things can happen in life but how you handle them says a lot making this writer's creativity and vision a riveting and powerful story. *I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.* *While part of a series this book can be read as a stand alone.*
