~Review: Freefall (Custom Culture #1) by Tess Oliver~

After leaving high school, with a hard won diploma and the title of most likely to break hearts, Alexander "Nix" Pierce has left his wild, out of control years mostly behind him. A small inheritance from his grandfather has given him the funds to open up his tattoo shop, Freefall, and he has started to pull his life together. Aside from trying to keep his best friend, Dray, from killing himself in the fight ring, and his slight obsession with a pin-up model he's never met, Nix's life is going smoothly . . . until Scotlyn James, the object of his obsession, walks into his shop.

Ever since a tragic accident killed her family and left her alone in the world, Scotlyn James hasn't spoken one word. Up until now she didn't care that she had no way of talking to people. Her awful aunt would never have listened, and Lincoln Hammond the arrogant, selfish man who pulled her from the streets of Los Angeles wouldn't hear her words if she could speak. But when Lincoln insists she get a tattoo to cover up a scar on her side, Scotlyn meets the artist, Nix Pierce. And now she longs for her voice. Now she has found someone who will hear her.

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★

From the first time Nix saw a picture of Scotlyn he knew that she was the girl of his dreams.  He didn’t know her name, where she lived or anything about her but he kept that picture folded in his wallet close to him at all times.  Nix just knew he felt a connection to the beautiful girl in the picture and would do anything to find her.  When his dream girl shows up at a car show that he is at, Nix cannot believe that she is real.  What is really amazing is that she seems to be just as attracted to him.  The only problem seems to be that she is already with someone else and he acts like he owns her.
Scotlyn cannot believe the way Nix makes her feel.  Even though she would like to find out more about Nix, she is committed to Lincoln.  Lincoln is the man that had saved her from a life on the streets and provided her with a home.  Scotlyn has another problem, since the accident that claimed the life of her family and severely wounded her; she has been unable to talk.  Her only way to communicate is with pen and paper or sign language.  When Lincoln insists that she get a tattoo to cover some scars that she incurred from the car accident she finds herself once again face to face with Nix.  He is everything she could want in a man, kind, patient and caring.  How can she turn her back on Lincoln?  Even if she wants to leave he will never let her go.  Can Nix help her get free and leave her gilded cage? ~TSRBR
