I received an advanced copy of this book from NetgalleyI felt a little bit like it was my birthday when I heard that there was an erotica story set in a dystopian world. Discovering an ink element withing the plot was like icing on the cake. **fans self**Noelle Cunningham was the daughter of an influential family in Eden. She was the perfect daughter in the perfect city being groomed to be the perfect wife - until she took the tiniest two steps out of line and was cast out into the sectors like she was nothing. All or nothing. Black or white. Good or bad.But what if "bad" is good?It can be.And that is what she discovers once fate intervenes and she is taken in by the O'Kane group. Boot-leggers and castoffs make up her new "family" and Noelle quickly figures out that ink is thicker than blood. While I won't go as far as to say she is truly independent since the O'Kane males (Dallas in particular) obviously dominate the pecking order, she is at last allowed the chance to figure out who she is. What she likes. How to live. I found myself proud of her by the end of the story - I also found myself blushing during the dirty parts. Who knew that was still possible?!? I may never look at pearls the same way again :) But good gawd, yeah...the erotica element is alive and kickin' in this book as is evident by the passages I have highlighted for um...further study. I do wish there had been a little more info given/world-building, but I grasped on to the bits and pieces as they were given. And as other books in the series come out, I'm sure I'll pick up on things that maybe I didn't realize were important the first time they were mentioned. I love ah-ha moments like that :) This series is full of promise and I can't wait to read more...Ace and Rachel, yes?
