ARC Review! The Darkest Link by Scarlett Cole

When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle...and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. After a string of failed relationships and a bruised heart, Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist and the perfect candidate for mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one night stand.

Reid left his life in Chicago far behind him and hasn't been back, but he's never been able to escape the guilt he feels about his own painful role in inviting a monster into his baby sister's life. A monster who almost destroyed her. Being with Lia is an unexpected gift, one he doesn't feel he deserves, and their one night together has him wanting more than he should. Especially since she doesn't know the truth about his past. However, when he finds Lia’s bracelet in his bed, he has the perfect excuse to drive down and surprise her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, in Miami. He's in for an even bigger shock - and a fist to the face - when his past and present collide in the humid Miami weather when he runs into the last person he’d ever expect to see in a tattoo studio: Harper, the sister he betrayed, and the last link to his former life.
This was an interesting conclusion to the series. It is a little hard to review without spoilers, as there are a lot of interlocking pieces and a lot of things that are revealed in this that will be spoilers for the previous books.

What I can say are Lia and Reid are interesting, and they are compelling. All of the Second Circle books have seemed, in my opinion, to be a little above normal with the events that happen...but at the same time, they work. This one is no different. I believed it, I liked the characters, and I was cheering for Reid and Lia to find their happy ending.

What I can say, if you have read all of the others, you will enjoy this one. If you haven't, I recommend the others first, for the spoilers this one contains.

The writing is strong, and the pacing is also strong. I recommend this book.
