Why I read this book: I am loving this series.

I’m not a deadbeat.
I didn’t know my kid existed before Milo showed up, but now that I do, I’m determined to keep my beautiful little Sofie in my life. Even if it means I need to spend time around her irritable uncle, Milo. The man pushes all of my buttons. 

He riles me up until I can’t think of anything except kissing him. Definitely not the reaction he expects. He’s not out, but I’m not the type to hide. Is there any way to make it work for our new family? 

Family means everything.
Eryk’s a cocky playboy. He’s not good enough to be my niece’s father, but unfortunately, DNA says otherwise. Father or not, I’m not about to walk out of little Sofie’s life. 

Which means I have to walk into Eryk’s even though I can’t stand him. So why is he so hard to resist? I decided on a closeted life a long time ago. It’s the only way to stay safe and successful. Could I bring myself to step out of the closet if it means having the true love of a family?

My Review:

Milo has every reason to be wary of Eryk.  His beloved sister has died and, on her deathbed, she named the father of her young daughter.  Eryk’s a playboy who loves his booze, his women, his men, and his job as a tattoo artist at Get Ink’d.  He also loves his celebrity status as a reality show is being shot in the store.  Eryk is everything Milo dislikes.  Milo, although a famous actor, is low-key.  His parents – his father in particular – instilled in him that if he wanted to be a successful star, he had to stay in the closet.  Suppress the urges.  Fight his authentic self.

Now the two men are in close proximity.  Milo believes he’s honoring his sister’s wishes by letting Eryk know he’s a father, but he expects the playboy to walk away from the responsibility.  That doesn’t work out so well.  Because Eryk’s willing to step up to the plate and be the dad little Sophia deserves.

And when the men spend time together?  Suddenly things aren’t so simple.  But when they are accidentally outed, Milo does what he always does when it comes to his sexuality.  He lies.  Eryk understands, to a certain extent, but he’s willing to give up everything to be with Sophia and Milo.  But is he willing to stay in the closet for the rest of his life?

I’m enjoying the Get Ink’d series because there’s always great conflict.  This book had plenty of that.  And I was thrilled to see new characters introduced, and that there’s going to be an LA franchise.  More books to come. Finally, I’ll mention Connor Brown.  I’ve enjoyed his narration through the series and I thought he did well with this book, even with little Sophia.  Can’t wait for the next one.

My Rating:

9/10 Pots of Gold (90% Recommended) – Compares to 4.5/5 Stars
