    One thought on “The Darkest Link”

    1. 4.5 "S-Word" StarsThis series just keeps getting better and better!The Darkest Link is the fourth book in in Scarlett Cole’s Second Circle Tattoos series. While the first three books in the series have dealt with different couples and each subsequent book to follow will also do the same, I do recommend reading this series in sequential order as right from the onset you begin getting to know all the characters that have been and will be featured. There is also an overall story arc that loosely [...]

    2. Sometimes fate decides that it's time to deal with the past and for Reid, that time came when sexy Lia got stranded in his town and he happened by. They have an immediate spark with plenty of tension but surprisingly enough don't act on it immediately. As their non-relationship begins to develop into more, Reid, who at the time Lia knows as Kenny, goes to the shop she works at to return something she left behind. He finds himself face to face with his past and there's no turning back. Only movin [...]

    3. NOW LIVE!**Barnes & Noble*Kobo*Reid has been running from his past for many years, and he has no intention of ever stopping. He's put himself in a kind of isolation, choosing to stay away from his family as a punishments for his past sins against them. His self imposed purgatory comes to an end, though, when he stops to help a woman who was broken down on the side of the road. Lia has her own demons that she's trying to escape from, but when she meets Reid she thinks it's the perfect time to [...]

    4. 4.5 It's A Full Circle, BabeStars* * * * 1/2IT'S LIVE!!!Gah, it makes me so happy when an author has the ability to bring a promising series full circle and do it with a strong, sure installment. This series called out to me from the start with the unique ways Scarlett Cole gave me complete insight to her characters. I was there each time experiencing all the emotional upheaval both people were dealing with each person equally strongd equally confused as to how to be in the possible relationship [...]

    5. ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. I think I liked this one even more than the previous book. Don't get me wrong, The Purest Hook is a great book but this one is even better. The plot and the flow were really good and I enjoyed reading about the characters and their chalanges of daily life (and for some also past)! In comparison to the previous book, this story takes it a bit further in terms of action and mystery and all the danger that's surrounding the main characters. Also [...]

    6. 4 "Babe" starsI really enjoyed the final book in this seriesI wanted to read Reid's story from the moment I finished "The Strongest Steel" and it was worth the waitingReview to come!

    8. Finally finished one book on my never ending currently reading list lolThank you thank you!I was expecting so much from this book because I liked the bits and pieces that I have seen in previous books, but sadly I was left disappointed.So let’s get started ~ Possible spoilers ~ Heroine. Lia was featured as this ‘bold, smart and colorful’, but the only thing I felt was that she is colourful. And that’s it. She was this pin up girl, sex kitten, vintage clothing, interesting make up etc, an [...]

    9. Since the beginning (of the series), Lia's character intrigued me. Then, when I heard about Reid getting a book, I couldn't help but jump for joy. I wanted him to redeem himself and who better to be along side him than a sassy firecracker who knows what, and who, she wants? The Darkest Link can be read as a standalone, but I would highly suggest reading The Strongest Steel first, as this book is partially based on the events of the first. Reid and Harper meeting again made my heart so happy, and [...]

    10. 4.5 starsWhat a good read The Darkest Link turned out to be.From the first page I knew this was going to be a good read. The plot was entertaining and the drama was just enough to keep me turning the pages. I loved Lia and Reid, they were such great characters, loved their sass, their passion, their humour, their honesty and the chemistry between them was smoking!I've really enjoyed the Second Circle Tattoos series, each book had been highly entertaining and I highly recommend them all.Thank you [...]

    11. 4 Stars ! The Darkest Link is a beautiful, emotional and heartwarming story of two people who meet each other unexpectedly in the middle of the road and acts on the mind blowing connection they feel with each other.I loved this book. Lia and Reid are two characters who will make you like them instantly as you read their story. Both Lia and Reid is having a lot of complexity underneath their facade. Reid is constantly struggling with his guilt for his past and Lia is troubled by the dysfunction i [...]

    12. 4.5 Stars!While the Darkest Link was Reid and Lia's story, it was also just as much about the continuation of Harper and Trent. I loved that this book got to be about Harper's brother and tying him to Lia, another Second Circle character. In the first book, we found out that Reid disappeared after the trial with Harper and Nathan and how much Harper missed her brother. Bringing Reid back into Harper's life while giving him his own love interest in Lia made this series that much sweeter. It also [...]

    13. ARC received for review4.5 starsGreat end to this series. We finally get the rest of the story of what happened with Harper's brother, Reid, as he gets his HEA. Reid first falls for Lia's long legs and then the rest not long after. There's plenty of story to go with the romance, sex, a fist fight, bad guy (but who is he afterReid or Lia), friends, and a wedding. There's a bonus chapter for the new series that will be the boys from Preload. Jordan's up first.

    14. This was awesome I just luvd it so so much.I didn't really know how Lia's book was goin to go. I didn't know much about her. I luv her sense of style the whole 50s pinup is so sexy and just suits her so much. Lia as built the life that she wants even if it's not what her father wants for her she as worked so hard to get where she is. She luvs working at Second Circle it's where her family is its where the people she luvs are they mean a lot to her. Her relationship with her mum and dad isn't gre [...]

    15. Getting your motor running just isn’t working for Lia, a highly talented tattoo artist, on her way to be a presenter at an influential convention. Luckily a knight in motorbike gear, riding his revving machine, comes to her rescue. Despite their mutual instant attraction, they don’t act on it but do keep in touch as he takes her broken down car to his garage for repair and helps sort things out for her. The rescuer is the garage owner who is known as Kenny, though his name is Reid. Little do [...]

    16. Link to full review below!I ADORE this series, but this book was my least favorite. I didn't care for Reid or Lia much. The best part of the book was catching up with Harper and Trent! See full review on The Book Disciple

    17. Finally managed to finish this book after months being postponed.What can I say? I like Scarlett Cole's writing and I definitely love the characters from this series. At first I thought this would be my favorite in this series, but unfortunately this story still can't beat Harper and Trent story, for me.But this is much better than the last 2 previous books.I think the insta-lust/love theme is just getting old for me.Lia and Reid only met for 5 weeks and they're already declared the L- word Scar [...]

    18. 4 stars for a fantastic series finishThis is the fourth and final book in the Second Circle Tattoos series. These books are inter-connected standalones and technically could be read on their own, however I would definitely recommend reading them in order - and before you read this book you should at least read the first book in the series The Strongest Steel. This book features the final tattooist from Second Circle to have their story told, Lia, and mysterious (and up until now, missing) Reid K [...]

    19. 3,5 to 4 stars.An ARC has been kindly provided by St Martin's Press, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.This was my first Scarlett Cole book and I had a great time reading Reid and Lia’s story. It began like many other romance stories with “man meets woman in need of some help” and I thought “I’ve read this a thousand times” but rapidly, the plot gained substance. The characters were portrayed in a very realistic way with all their flaws, guilt and hope. Lia and Reid’s [...]

    20. "Oh the places she'd let his dirty hands go if he asked nicely."I read The Darkest Link as a standalone. It was my introduction to Scarlett Cole and let me say I'm very happy to have found her. She thoroughly entertained me with engaging characters, witty banter, and nail-biting suspense. And did I mention the S Words? There's "Slipping, sliding, seducing, sucking, screwing, and sexual." And that's not all, there's plenty more where those came from and it gets better when they get past the talki [...]

    21. This is going to be quick because real life work is kicking my patootie, plus don’t have alot of word vomit in me at this point. I liked it well enough. Lia and Reid are pleasant, the writing was pleasant, even if a bit cluttered, dependent on coincidences and DRAMA for drama’s sake at this point in the series. Kind of soapy to me in that way. Anyhoodle, it’s a decent enough read even though I was never passionate about it and the series never managed to reach the heights that the first bo [...]

    22. ***ARC Provided by the Publisher and NetGalley***This was an interesting conclusion to the series. It is a little hard to review without spoilers, as there are a lot of interlocking pieces and a lot of things that are revealed in this that will be spoilers for the previous books.What I can say are Lia and Reid are interesting, and they are compelling. All of the Second Circle books have seemed, in my opinion, to be a little above normal with the events that happenbut at the same time, they work. [...]

    23. The Darkest Link es la historia del romance entre Reid, el hermano de Harper, y Lia.Si bien no había aparecido mucho la protagonista en los libros anteriores (al menos en los dos primeros), creo que la autora perfiló un personaje bastante único. Ahora, difícil que fuera distinto, considerando que Lia es una pelirroja llena de tatuajes y que siente un amor intenso por la ropa vintage y una cantidad enferma de maquillaje. Y aunque en general no me gustan los libros de chicas así -que invierte [...]

    24. I was gifted a free copy of this novel by the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.I loved, loved, loved this novel, a fitting end to what has been a great series by a new author. Scarlett Cole has really found her niche and she writes with confidence and style.Julianna 'Lia' Carlisle is the female tattoo artist at Second Circle, she favours the 1950s look (I picture her a bit like the cover on The Shameless Hour by Sarina Bowen) all red lipstick, pin-curled hair and corseted w [...]

    25. Rating 4.5This is my first book in the series so I look forward to going back and catching up. It's a really good book but it is, or at least for me, was an emotional read. There is so much turmoil surrounding Lia's family that she can't get out of town fast enough to get to the tattoo expo she is speaking at in Florida. So much so that on her mom's birthday she over hears her dad talking to someone about bringing her to heel and having to work on her mother before beginning his run for governor [...]

    26. It's no secret that from the moment I finished The Strongest Steel I was screaming from the rooftop this woman was going places and everyone should take note. I said it them and I'm repeating now. I can't even with this woman right now and her words #flawlessI'm not gonna lie and tell you I jumped up and down when I realized Reid was getting a story until I realized how perfectly complete the series would be if he did. And it wasn't because I had some pre-hate for him no, it's because Harper a [...]

    27. 4 sad-because-the-series-is-over-stars.I took a while to finish this book, only because i had completely forgotten all about Reid and i needed a refresher by reading again The Strongest Steel.Reid's character was talked about by Harper as the brother who left her to fend for herself after an attack from his besty Nathan. This book picks up when Reid is back to explain himself as well as developing his new found relationship with Lia,who also works with Trent and Cujo.We get to finally know more [...]

    28. This couple has strong sexual chemistry from the moment they meet. The sex scenes were quite steamy. There is a connection between these two that you can feel. These two people are connected and make it work because of the love they have for one another, even if it happens fast. They both have issues in their lives they need to to workout and overcome. Once they figure it all out, they get their happy ending. This was a good read. This book has some danger, friendship, family, bikes, cars, tatto [...]

    29. I finished this steamy story but it was so unrealistic I skipped lots of chapters. It started out with hot sexual attraction then went to heroine's situation where she talked assertively then gave into blackmail and the hero's coincidence wasn't any more plausible. Lia's car breaks down on the road and mechanic Reid comes to her rescue.

    30. Great ending to this series. Lia and Reid are both very engaging and their chemistry could ignite a kindle. 😁.
