Mad Love (Guns & Ink Book 1) by Shana Vanterpool

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Mad Love

NA Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Scars can make you tremble but love can glue it all together but for that to happen you need to let go.

Have a look at the blurb:

She was a disruption he never wanted.

He was everything she distrusted.

Klayton Caldwell owns a tattoo shop in Denver, Colorado, and has seen just about everything and met just about every kind of person. And they all have one thing in common. Ink.

He isn’t complicated. What you see is what you get. Sex? Always. Relationships? Never. Pleasantries? He doesn’t do that either. Those who can’t handle his mouth get inked elsewhere. Klayton holds everyone at a distance, even his friends. He doesn’t do “close.”

Until Madison ends up in his tattoo parlor, broken, afraid and alone. There’s something about her, and almost immediately, Klayton’s guard drops. Now, everything he knows about himself changes as his life begins to unravel.

Twenty-year-old Madison Hart’s future was taken from her the moment she was abducted from her college campus and held captive by a sick f^#%ker. After escaping, she flees, running into a stranger. A stranger who shares a similar past. Someone who might be able to help her heal. If she’ll let him.

Madi comes into Klayton’s life like a storm. She’s beautiful. Pitiful. Dangerous. Her pain runs deep enough that she may never be able to talk about what she’s experienced. Her refusal to talk takes a level of patience Klayton’s not sure he has.

He must navigate her broken pieces by changing everything he is. Who he’s been all these years won’t work anymore. But Madi fights him, she fights herself. She fights the madness.

She refuses to talk. He can’t control his mouth. She doesn’t want to be touched. He can’t help himself. They don’t want love. Inside this storm, is a love so mad it might destroy them both.

That’s it… It’s official… I’m insane.. Insanely crazy and obsess with books. I just can’t put them down nor do I want to do so.
Shana Vanterpool had started a new series and I’m so happy for it because I love new authors.
Her writing is intense, beautiful and raw.
Mad Love is the first book from the Guns & Inked series and I can’t imagine what’s next…
This book tells the stories of Klayton and Madison.
Klayton had suffered a lot in his life and wants to to be left alone doing his craft. He just wants peace and ink people. One day his best friend brings a girl that needs help and let’s just say that it was a bumpy road to do.
Madison had a ruff life after being abducted from her campus. She was kept by an insane guy and was abused in every way you can imagine. When she’s able to get away she seeks help knocking on Klayton’s door.
This was a story about two broken souls that had suffered so much and just want to find a happy place. The plot is amazing, intense and sad sometimes. I wad so into the story that I didn’t wanted to put the book down. I simply could do so and that made me a prisoner of this plot.
Shana you nailed it. I was anxious, sad, mad, furious sometimes and I’m so glad for the chance to know your work. But I’m scared. Lol. Scared for what’s about to come.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
