Freefall, by Tess Oliver, shocked me completely. It wasn’t what I was expecting but in a good way. This book is Book 1 of the Custom Culture series, however, each book is considered a stand alone. The remaining books in the series focus on the supporting characters of Freefall.
Nix is a good guy. He owns a tattoo parlor named Freefall, lives on a houseboat, takes care of his Nana and carries around a picture of a beautiful blue-eyed pin-up model from a car show that he’s never met but is obsessed with. He and his buddies Dray and Crutch frequent the car shows for different reasons with Nix’s being the hope of finding that girl.
Scotlyn lost everything in one night. Her mom, dad and sister all died in a car crash; being the only survivor she wished she would’ve died too. She turns to drugs and prostitution eventually ending up homeless. She meets Mr. Hammond, a rich playboy who recognizes her beauty and uses it to his advantage in his many business deals. Using her as a pin-up model he realizes that she wont get too far modeling because of the scar the car accident left. They end up at Freefall in search of one of LA’s best Tattoo artists to cover it up; Nix.
This story had a bit of everything and I really really liked it. This is one of those books that is really hard to discuss without giving too much away because every little detail is important; but if you’ve read Archer’s Voice you will definitely love this book. I couldn’t put it down because I kept wondering how it was all going to play out. I will give it 4 out of 5 stars!! Great easy read
