Tattoo Thief (Tattoo Thief #1) by Heidi Joy Tretheway

Tattoo Thief (Tattoo Thief, #1)22-year-old Beryl doesn't know why Gavin Slater trashed his penthouse, abandoned his dog and fled the country. But as his house sitter, she must pick up the pieces for the front man of the white-hot rock band Tattoo Thief. 

When ultra-responsible Beryl confronts the reckless rock star, she wants to know more than just what to do with his mess. Why is he running? What’s he searching for? And is he responsible for the death of his muse? 

New York newbie Beryl must find her footing in Gavin’s crazy world of the ultra-wealthy to discover her own direction and what can bring him back.

Steamy, sassy and tender, Tattoo Thief is a story of breaking from a comfort zone to find a second chance.

REVIEW: ***

Very short on the actual romance side of things. It was a good book, but it mainly told of Beryl's (the heroine) move to New York and how she coped with all the changes in her life. She and the Hero emailed/texted each other a lot, but nothing really felt romantic until the end. They did not even meet face to face until the last 50 pages or so of the book. It seemed very slim on the reasons why they loved each other and online romance is okay...it works, but you need to have a face to face relationship before you really KNOW you love each other. Believe me I know this, as online is how I met my husband. But even after 2 years of online conversations I did not really know him until we met face to face and learned each others quirks, habits etc. Its one thing to write about them, another to live with. 

The writing was good, the author did a great job of telling the story. I just wish it had been more involving.
