WARNING: This book is not suitable for children under the age of seventeen due to language, sexual content, and intense subject matter.
In this Brotherhood you live or die by the three-piece patch. For Hold Dawson, Vice-President of the Hells Highwaymen Motorcycle Club, it’s not just black ink tattooed on his body, but the religion he worships, and the law that governs his life. Nothing else matters. Family by choice and not by blood. More sacred than a shared name. Bound by respect. Loyal to death.
But there’s another side to this life. One the President, Hold’s own father, lives and regulates by.
It’s blood in and blood out and only one man gets to be king.

When Beautiful Ink ends, you sit there craving more, and Hell’s Ink is the perfect follow up to Beautiful Ink. I fell in love with Holder in Beautiful Ink. There was always something about him that had me cheering him on and praying that even though he has no choice in this life, he still has a good heart in there somewhere.
“Short Skirts were his kryptonite and he was pretty sure Superman never hit on Batman’s girl”
Hold is a mess. Hel’s still has a hold on his heart, the MC is going to shit, and he’s swore off finding an “old lady.” He believes that no one needs to be involved with him unless it’s a roll around in the sack, but even in those moments, his mind still drifts to Hels. That is until Mikey’s new to town interest catches his eye, and as much as he tries to stay away from Shyla, it’s damn near impossible. That’s where conflicts arise between between Mikey, the MC, and a world wind hurricane with his father.
“Hold might be a hard man, but he wasn’t a hard man to love.”
Shyla has no one left except for her Aunt Diamond, and she’s unsure if she glad to see her or not. As a child, Shyla remembers the family she had both by blood and not with her father’s MC. It’s a life that makes her feel like home. When Hold comes into her life she sees him for his true self, and this is not a beautiful image. Regardless, she loves him, but when the MC life plays a toll on her, she has to decide to let the person she is go or fight to keep her alive. Her love for Hold is also her breaking point.
Hell’s Ink is Holden’s story. We are able see how his mind works and how he tries to make things right. This story didn’t leave me speechless like Beautiful Ink, but that is due to the nature of that story. Hell’s Ink takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. This story had me wanting Ward dead. I mean kill the mofo and have no remorse for it at all! (Gosh, that sounds ruthless!) More importantly it gives insight to what happened when Hel’s and Hold were kids, what happened after Hels left, and kept me praying that Hold finds a happily ever after. Hold is given a new chance at love, but his fears and lifestyle hold him at bay. Is Hold ready to let go of Hels completely? Will he find a new happiness with one that bends with the rules? or Will he lost everything family, the MC, and his past, present, and future?
