Written On My Heart by Cole Gibsen! Review + Giveaway!

Some words last forever...
It's been six months since Ashlyn Daniels was kicked out of her home. Six months since she stood up to her abusive stepfather and got a busted rib-and seeing all her things set ablaze in a backyard bonfire-for her trouble. Never going back. She doesn't need trouble...especially if trouble is tattoo artist Lane Garrett, who's six-feet-plus of tattooed hotness and a complete ass.Lane has spent the last decade fighting to support his family. To protect them. There's no room for romance, even with a fragile (yet amusingly feisty) stunner...even if she somehow manages to invade his world and his heart. But while some secrets are as visible as ink on the skin, others must remain hidden at all costs...

My review: 

I loved Written on My Heart. There was never a dull moment from beginning to end. We are instantly introduced to Ashlyn who has been trying to make it on her own. At such a young age, with no support from family, she has next to nothing, but regardless, she works at a coffee shop and has been saving her tips. 

She meets a friend at work who introduces her to her brother, Lane. And in walks a swoon worthy romance. 

I stayed up all night reading this and any book that forces me to lose my sleep garners a 5 stars any time! 

I loved that the author didn't give away who Haley was right away. I did think that Ashlyn's reaction to her was a bit over the top, but with all that said, I could understand her apprehension given her own situation. Thankfully she comes around. 

Now with Lane... oh my, oh my! Now here's a character that you really empathize with. He's been the man of the house so to speak since his police officer father died with he was teenager. That coupled with the fact that a one night stand produced his daughter, he has a ton of responsibility. 

He sees something in Ashlyn and I'm so glad. The tension between the two is good. 

This was a great read, fast paced, and had just the right amount of romance in it. I will certainly by on the lookout for future works from Ms. Gibsen.
