Women in his bed, celebs and rockers in his chair and a killer bank account at his disposal, life is pretty freaking swell. Then she walks back into it again. With her mismatched eyes, perfect pink mouth and a laugh that still haunts him, she gave him nothing but marvelous misery. Now she wants his hands on her again. Not for pleasure, but for pain. For Ink. A bleeding heart to match the one she left him with five years ago. 

She can’t forget him. No matter how hard she’s tried. The pain she caused him in the past eats at her daily, and she can’t move on with her life. But she has a plan, a hope for redemption – a way for him to take his revenge out on her flesh. But it’ll only work if he lets her inside his exclusive world, under his famous artist’s needle and into his bed—and heart-once again.

First Ink is a short story introducing us to the lives of Rush and Addison, two individuals that use to be inseparable but stupid decisions and circumstance tore them apart. Five years later Addison wants the chance to tell Rush how she feels and she goes to great lengths to do so. I was swept away reading First Ink. I personally don’t read contemporary romances that often, let alone NA material but this one sucked me in and I devoured it in one sitting before quickly purchasing the next installment in the Wicked Ink Chronicles. I not only fell in love with the story itself but with the characters. Rush and Addison are relatable and their thoughts are genuine and realistic. I wanted to root for the two of them and was biting my nails, waiting for them to figure things out. First Ink was an extraordinary introduction in Wright’s Wicked Ink world and I am eager for more! The story is one that I feel we all can relate two and while yes it can be slightly predictable, it is the feel good story with the epic leaps for love that we all secretly crave.
