Falling Under: Duke and Carmella
Ink & Chrome Book 2
Duke Bradshaw, co-owner of the custom motorcycle shop Twisted Steel, is great with his hands and not afraid to get dirty . . . especially in his fantasies about his redheaded neighbor Carmella Rossi.
Carmella has been secretly lusting after her hot, tattooed neighbor for the last three years. His gravelly voice combined with the throaty purr of his custom bike never fails to send thrills down her spine. When Duke asks her to join him at the shop, she can't say no. Soon their days together spill over into nights that bring her pleasure beyond anything she imagined. But Carmella grew up with bikers, and knows how bad a bad boy can be. Can she put herself at risk for someone who has heart-breaker written all over him?
There is one word to sum up this book for me... BORING! It was a snooze fest from beginning to end. Duke and Carmella were under developed as characters and boring.. The sex while plentiful was boring, it's almost like it was an afterthought... the almost non-existent plot line when it decided to make an appearance about 70% of the way through the book was boring and incomplete everything is pretty much left unresolved. The only reason I kept reading the book (I almost DNFed a few times) was I wanted more info on Mick, which there wasn't much a couple of lines here and there. I think when it came to Duke and Carmella’s relationship the dog was the most interesting part. A friend stated to me and I think it sums it up pretty nicely.. The first chapter of Micks book is better than the entire Falling Under book. What happened between the first book and this one??? The first book was engaging, it had great characters, the plot was interesting and it really pulled you in from the beginning. This one was just plain flat. Nothing happens. Reviewer that gave this book 4 and 5 star reviews I'm left wondering if they read the same book as I did. Now it's no secret I am not a huge Lauren Dane fan for just this reason. She can be so hit and miss. This one is a total miss for me. That is all I really have to say about this book because there isn't much to tell. I want the time back I spent reading this book.
