New Release: Coming Back (Ink & Chrome #3) by Lauren Dane

Lauren Dane is here today to talk Top 5's. Here are her Top 5 sexiest tattos (and where!).

Top 5 Sexiest Tattoos


  1. On a man I love the belly tattoo!  In COMING BACK, Mick has a tiger on his stomach with the heroine’s birthdate. Tough and tender!
  2. Back pieces like Jessi’s dragonfly wings. I love it when there’s a story to come with something, especially when it’s a large piece! PJ has a lotus in OPENING UP and it means a lot to her personally as well as being pretty.
  3. Half sleeve shoulder to elbow – Love this because if a person is in shirtsleeves you may just see a tiny bit of it. Leaves some to imagination or is a great spot for fantastic ink.
  4. I like pieces that flow from one part of the body to another – back to hip or hip to shoulder, down a leg, etc. Carmella’s poppies in FALLING UNDER are a great example.
  5. Small surprise places – behind an ear, the crook of an arm, etc. I love little hearts or birds, a word, etc.
Thank you, Lauren. What a great list. I'm off to google tattoos and see what I can find. :-)

What about you? Do you love tattoos? Is a tatted bad boy your thing?

And now a little about the book ...

Mick Roberts, the newest partner at Twisted Steel's custom hotrod and motorcycle shop, looks like a man with everything. But secretly he still craves the connection he lost when his best friend Adam and the love of his life Jessilynn walked out. Then, he wasn't ready for the pleasure they promised. Now, things have changed.

Rich, powerful, and insatiable, Adam Gulati is used to getting what he wants. And there's nothing he wants more than Mick and Jessi. He hasn't seen either in over a year, but the second he sets eyes on them again his memories-and his desires-can't be denied.

After trying to live without them, Jessi Franklin realized no one else can satisfy her like Adam and Mick. The three of them need one another-in more ways than one. It's time to stop pretending and submit to the hunger they all share. But once they go down this road, there's no turning back. As deeply devoted as they are, no one knows what great bliss their forbidden fantasy will find-or the price they may pay . . .



    “Things just unraveled for me when Mick left. Watching Jessi try to process, trying to be there for her and not managing it very well. I felt like an asshole, felt like I’d been tossed away. Felt like I needed to be someone else to see if that’s what I should do for the rest of my life,” Adam said.
    His leaving—the way he’d done it—had been a way to allow himself the space to take what he wanted and gorge on it.
    Jessi lifted her face from where she’d been buried in Mick’s shirt, locking her gaze on his.
    Adam hated that she’d been hurt. Hated that it had been necessary in any case, to step away and be Adam in a completely different context.
    “And did you like what you found?”
    Adam took her hand. “It was something I had to do. I’m back to you now. For keeps.”
    Which didn’t make it any less harsh, he knew. He had a lot of fucking sins to make up for when it came to Jessilyn Franklin. He just had to hope he was man enough to do what it took.
    And that she found it within her heart to understand. One day.
    As for Mick, that was still complicated, only in a different way.
    “For keeps like we’re all close friends again? We hang out and share our lives?” Mick asked, wariness in his voice.
    Jessi wore the sweetest confused expression, and Adam refused to think about how terrifying it was that she got to him the way she did just by being herself.
    “I didn’t want to assume,” Adam said.
    Jessi rolled her eyes. “You realize that all three of us showed up after years of being apart. We all clicked back together pretty much immediately. And now it’s like we’re all shy? After all we’ve shared? That’s what this is, then? We’re all friends but not like before? We just forget those times? You two want to see other people?”
    “Is that what you want?” Adam asked carefully.
    “You left, Adam. After you left, Mick. I didn’t want to walk away. You two did. So asking me that question sort of makes me mad.”
    “You’re the one who lived with someone else and was going to get married,” Mick mumbled.
    “You guys are such assholes sometimes. Despite what you both put me through, I accept that you needed to step away. But you come back to me with this? No, thank you.     If you want to just be friends, all right. I can deal. But you need to be up front and you can’t be kissing my fingers and Mick needs to stop grinding his cock into my ass. Friends don’t do that.”
    “I just wanted you to know I didn’t expect you to hop into bed or anything. I didn’t want to assume,” Adam repeated.
    Jessi looked up to Mick. “And you?”
    Mick was smarter than Adam, though, because he hugged her tight. “If it was up to me, I’d want us to all be together. Really together.”
    “Suck up.” Adam rolled his eyes.
    “She’s on my lap though, so I declare that a win.”
    Adam reached out to snatch her from Mick’s lap, bringing her to his own. “Looks like she’s in my lap now.”
    “Something friends don’t do,” Jessi reminded him. Adam took her cheeks in his hands and then claimed her mouth before she could say anything else.
    It slammed into him so hard—a wave of regret that he’d put this aside—that he gasped, sucking in the sigh she gave him.
    A sweet enough kiss. For now. Hunger, barely leashed, filled him. He wanted. Wanted what had been freely offered before he’d truly understood how rare and special it was.
    “I’m always your friend,” he spoke against her mouth. “But I’d be a liar if I claimed I didn’t want everything from you. Being away from you only underlined it.”
    “I was so lonely without you both.” She closed her eyes a moment to avoid his seeing all that pain, but he saw it, felt it cut him to the bone.
    “I’m sorry. I was lonely too.” Adam had filled every moment with a pursuit of pleasure, but this was something totally different. Something he might not have really recognized if he hadn’t been without it.
    But what he did see was he’d have a job of earning her trust back, even if she was being easy enough right then.
