Review 'Coming Back' by Lauren Dane
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane brings us the third book in her hot and steamy Ink & Chrome romance series.

The men of Twisted Steel are great with their hands. And they're not afraid to get dirty . . .

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 . . .

My Review:

‘Coming Back’ is the third book in the Ink & Chrome series. I’ve read the previous two books and although I had a view problems with these books, I really did enjoy them, so I was excited when ‘Coming Back’ was delivered at my house. And I really love the book covers by Piatkus, especially since I’m a real tattoo fan myself. Those covers really deserve looking at.

In ‘Coming Back’ we meet the third owner of the Twisted Steel company Mick, and Jessilyn and Adam. Mick is a badass tattooed war veteran, who just became shared owner of the hot and busy Twisted Steel, custom motorcycle shop. On his celebration party of becoming an owner, Mick invites his old girlfriend and boyfriend with the hope of restoring the relationship they had years ago. A relationship they weren’t ready for all those years ago. Now Mick, Jessilyn and Adam need to find a way back to each other and face the obstacles they couldn’t face all those years ago.

Well.. Call me old fashioned but this book was a little weird. This was a love story not only about a woman and a man, no there where a woman and two man. And they all loved each other. Well.. I’m open for new reading stuff.. but this really needed some getting used to. Especially since there were a lot of sexy scenes with the three of them and also with just the two man. Yep.. definitely different than my normal reads.

The characters Mick, Jessilyn and Adam were definitely fun to get to know. Mick was this badass tattooed man who seemed all tough on the outside but was sweet on the inside. Adam was this alpha male who really took care of the people he loved. And Jessilyn was this really kind person who loved with all her heart. They really were three interesting people.
So the characters were definitely nice, and it was fun to get a glimpse of the main characters of the previous Ink & Chrome books, but overall I just did not feel this book. I couldn’t connect with the characters. Especially the beginning felt really weird to me. They all had been apart for four years, and boom in one day they are back together and almost living together. It felt rushed and it didn’t leave the reader time to get used to this unusual relationship.

‘Coming Back’ was not a bad read, but there was just too much to get used to for me to really enjoy it. And honestly, I just prefer the two people relationships. Three just seems to crowded and awkward. And I also really missed the whole Twisted Steel work related stuff, that was much more a part of the story in the first two books and really made me love this series.

My Rating:

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 from the Little, Brown Book Group in exchange for my honest review.


  1. So all the main characetr of each are owners of the same shop? That sounds like an interesting set-up for a series. The characters all sound great, but that's a shame the relationship rushes forward so fast from reunited to living together in one day. It would be nice if the characters ease into that a bit more.

    1. Yep, each book is about one of the co-owners of the same shop. Love that part of this series. It's really fun to read about. But unfortunately I was so dissapointed by this out-of-the-blue relationship.
