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.

Mace’s story is heartbreaking, the things that were done to him as a young boy were so bad and even now, as a grown man he feels broken. I love reading about how Bear gathered together four broken souls and made a tight-knit family and although Mace knows he is loved, he holds back the truth of his upbringing, thinking that his family of brothers will be horrified and will reject him. When something happens that makes Mace have to face his fears and tell his family of his past, he finds the strength to do so, thankful that he has Rob at his side.
I love the unconditional love these five men have for each other. They argue, bicker, laugh, support, and would go to the ends of the earth for each other.
I love this series, we’ve read of Gus and Rey, now Mace and Rob and next? Hellion? due Spring of 2019? About IVO? I cannot wait. Be still my beating heart.
Another great series from Rhys Ford, a favourite author of mine.
