Review 'Falling Under' by Lauren Dane
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane delivers the second book in her dark, gritty and romantic Ink & Chrome series.

Duke Bradshaw, co-owner of the custom motorcycle shop Twisted Steel, is great with his hands and not afraid to get dirty . . . especially in his fantasies about his redheaded neighbor Carmella Rossi.

Carmella has been secretly lusting after her hot, tattooed neighbor for the last three years. His gravelly voice combined with the throaty purr of his custom bike never fails to send thrills down her spine. When Duke asks her to join him at the shop, she can't say no. Soon their days together spill over into nights that bring her pleasure beyond anything she imagined. But Carmella grew up with bikers, and knows how bad a bad boy can be. Can she put herself at risk for someone who has heart-breaker written all over him?

My Review:

A view weeks ago, I read the first book in the Ink & Chrome series ‘Opening Up’. Since I really enjoyed that book, I was super excited when I received ‘Falling Under’, the second book in the Ink & Chrome series.

‘Falling Under’ is the story of Duke Bradshaw, co-owner of the custom motorcycle shop Twisted Steel, and best friend of Asa Barrons, who was the main character in ‘Opening Up’. Duke works hard for a living and knows how to have fun. Ever since Duke first laid eyes on his red-headed neighbor Carmella Rossi, he had a thing for her. And now he has a job offer for her.
Carmella Rossi has been secretly admiring her tattooed neighbor Duke for almost three years. But his appearance screams trouble, and trouble is the last thing Carmella needs. When Duke offers Carmella a job in his shop, she can’t decline, and she promises herself to keep their relationship strictly business. But is Duke really so much trouble and can Carmella keep her distance?

What I really like about the Ink & Chrome series, is the way these characters are not your average characters. All characters have a little attitude, have some awesome tattoo’s, like fast cars and motorcycles and they all work hard for a living. I just love these characters. This second book in the series is the story of Duke, which we already got a little taste of in ‘Opening Up’. Duke seems to be this bad guy on the outside, but really is a great guy who really cares for his neighbor Carmella.
Carmella is a very hardworking girl, who hasn’t known many kind and honest men in her life. Duke and Carmella immediately hit it off, and I was rooting for them from the beginning.  

This book is definitely a very fun and sexy read. The thing that bothered me a little about this book, was the way Duke and Carmella hit it of pretty in the beginning of this book, and from that moment there wasn’t a lot happening. There were some very hot scenes, and there relationship grew, but mainly they were fighting, making up, getting to know each other and fighting again. It was fun to read, but a little predictable and there just wasn’t a lot happening.
But that doesn’t mean I didn’t like reading this book. I did like it and would still recommend this book and this series, but a little more action would have been nice.

That said, I love the cover by Piatkus and I can’t wait to read the third book in this series.

About the Author:


The story goes like this: While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time, so her husband took her comments about "giving that writing thing a serious go" to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it. Today, Lauren is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than 60 novels and novellas across several genres.

For more information about Lauren Dane and her books please visit her websiteFacebook, Twitter, Goodreads and You Tube.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review from the Little, Brown Book Group.
