As a Las Vegas tattoo artist, Mohan did excellent work. He was a talented man, but when his income started to lessen, the executives of the hotel wanted to get him step up his business. Putting flare in advertising was not Mohan’s strong suit, Aaron (one of the execs.) had a few ideas to help. Getting personally involved in the tattoo artist was not the plan, but if Mohan was leaving, there may not be any other time. Taking the chance that his feelings would be reciprocated, Aaron took the step and found that it was more of a leap - of faith. In himself and in Mohan.

Fast and right to it, this is a short story that could have been longer. The characters were little more than half formed, but it was enough for some connection. The bad boy and Mr. Perfect was a familiar scene, but the addition of little sis and her girlfriend was a great way to emphasize just how much Aaron needed to accept about others as well as himself. I would read Cheryl Dragon again. ( )

A bit of Cinderfella meets Prince Charming and Bad Boy meets Angel Boy.

Mohan (I like this name, it's very sexy...) is a 35 years old tattoo parlor owner and artist. Of Indian (from India) origins, he left home and family as a young boy when he refused to marry a good Indian girl. Since then he had some bad relationships mostly with men who didn't want to see with him, a clearly etnic guy who doesn't hide to be gay.

Aaron is an executive manager, a VP in the hotel where Mohan opened his tattoo parlor. 28 years old, Aaron really has never had problems in his life: he is the perfect son of a perfect family; probably if he found the reason to coming out with his family, he would do that, but in this moment he doesn't see why he has to risk his good image for nothing. But when nothing becomes Mohan, and he instead risks to lose the man, Aaron is willing to do everything to prove his interest.

Unfortunately the book is not very long, less than 80 pages, but I like it. It's romantic and sweet, but it has also a naughty little side: both Mohan than Aaron aren't shy in prove their sexual interest in many way, and both of them have a dominant side that makes the lovemaking really hot. There aren't really dramatic scene or twist in the story, and all the conflicts are resolved in a pretty smooth and simple way: maybe I'd like to read a little more on Aaron and Mohan common life, how they manage to find a common path together; it would be interesting to see also their interaction as couple with the outside world.

All in all a fast and enjoyable reading, that I think it proves Cheryl Dragon's skilled hand in writing erotic romance (not only M/M).

P.S. Very hot cover from Christine M. Griifth

Book description
From Loose Id:Opposites ignite in a sin city hotel. Indian rebel Mohan struggles to mix his Hindu heritage and strong sense of self while trying to keep his tattoo parlor in the upscale Las Vegas hotel. PR exec, and all American guy, Aaron is on Mohan's side but sex gets in the way of business. Mohan is more interested in using Aaron's body and than his brains--believing he's found the man he wants to keep. Aaron's half in and half out of the closet style works for his career but Mohan wants Aaron all out and all his to keep and ink. When good luck shines on Mohan's tattoo business, he believes it's Aaron's manipulation. Aaron must step up and out himself to keep the sexy Hindu man he loves. Kinky ink and tantric sex are just the beginning of their nirvana.
