Review of INK: A Love Story on 7th and Main by Elizabeth Hunter

Incredible 5 star read! Elizabeth Hunter totally delivered on this sweet bookish read! I absolutely loved this book! This is the first book I’ve had the pleasure of reading by this author. I loved that she drew me in with small town feels then hooked me with the INK concept. Which is brilliant btw!

This book is centered around Emmie and Ox. After moving back to her hometown, Emmie is the proud owner of a new book store. While getting the storefront ready to open, she and her friends witness a lovers quarrel at the tattoo shop across the street and Emmie can’t help but fantasize about the gorgeous tattoo artist that would never give her the time of day. But to get her business off the ground she needs his help selling ink.

Ox has had it with women. His last relationship was toxic and now that he is out of a job, he needs to keep what he has with Emmie professional. That’s easier said than done. Sparks fly in this incredibly sweet and witty book.

I love the characters and the chemistry between them. Emmie and Ox were perfect for each other and I can’t wait for the next book in this series to knock me off my feet.

It’s everything but business as usual.

Emmie Elliot hadn’t expected to come back to Metlin, California. She definitely didn’t expect to stay. She returned to her childhood home with a mission: Sell the building that housed her grandmother’s book store and move on with her life.

But life doesn’t always go according to plan.

To reopen her grandmother’s book shop, Emmie will need a hook. She’ll need a strategy. She’ll need an… Ox?

Miles Oxford doesn’t have much interest in quiet bookstore owners. He’s a tattoo artist without a space to work, and the last thing he wants is to get involved with anyone after his last disaster of a relationship. Work and pleasure don’t mix for Ox, but since he doesn’t have any interest in the cute girl with the bold business proposal, he should be safe from any awkward complications, right?

She sells ink. He tattoos it. Unusual? Yes. But a book shop/tattoo studio might be the ticket for both Emmie and Ox to find success on their own terms. As long as they keep their attention focused on business.

Just on business.
