Lift. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
Qualifying to compete on a national level is all that’s on power lifter Dagen Rourke’s mind. After an injury sidelined him the previous year, his only goal has been to overcome the physical challenges and mental demons to get back in the game. 
Falling into bed with the new artist at his brother’s tattoo shop was never part of his training schedule. Now he has to find a balance between the time he wants to give Ollie and the brutal training for what could be the most important competition of his life.
Run. Tattoo. Doze. Keep going.
Oliver Vos jumps at the chance to work at Vidar Rourke’s award-winning tattoo shop, Open Wounds. Getting out from under a nasty mentor and making it on his own is all Ollie has dreamed of for years. Unbeknownst to him, the room Vidar offers to rent him until he’s back on his feet would have him sharing space with tempting gentle giant, Dagen.
Living together is an adjustment, and when the heat between them morphs into something more will old insecurities and new tests drag them apart? Or will they find a way to carry the weight of their burdens…together?



4.5 Stars

Dagen isn’t thrilled when he learns he’s getting a new roommate, until he lays eyes on Ollie. Not only is the guy gorgeous, but Dagen finds himself drawn to him emotionally, as well.

Ollie is running from the abusive relationship he’s found himself in for the last couple of years. He’s told himself he won’t let himself trust again, but there is just something about Dagen that makes him want to let his guard down.

Ollie’s story is heartbreaking and I just wanted to cuddle him. I absolutely adored both him and Dagen. Dagen and Ollie were both lovable characters who fit together perfectly. I loved that Dagen took his time and gave Ollie the space he needed. He never rushed him and I adored watching Ollie let his guard down and begin to trust Dagen and let him in.

Although the story is maybe a bit instalovish, with the time frame the story takes place over, the progression of Dagen and Ollie’s relationship felt natural and was never rushed. They had amazing chemistry and the sexual tension was almost visible in the air, it was so thick.

I not only loved Ollie and Dagen, but I absolutely adored Dagen’s family and I’m excited and looking forward to following the series and seeing each of these brothers get their happy ending.

The story was well-written and flowed well. The author's writing drew me in, the style was comfortable and easy to read. This was a very enjoyable read and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for the next installment. Highly recommendable!

Stories have always been Michelle Frost's escape. Even as a kid, she can remember writing stories featuring her favorite cartoon characters. Now, her characters are a little more grown up, as are the stories she likes to tell. A self-proclaimed coffee addict and a bit of an introvert, she can most likely be found at any given time, on any given day with her hands on a keyboard or her nose in a book.
