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. 

Opening line

The throbbing in my head was compounded by the thwack my skull received as I hit it against the legs of my dresser. 

Scotyln hasn't talked since the accident nor has she had any desire to even try talking. Thanks to Lincoln she's no longer living on the street but living in his big home with his money isn't making her happier either. However, she doesn't think anyone will hire a mute girl with no skills so her only option is Lincoln but he's not a bad guy just seems to have gotten into something darker. When he decides to get a tattoo to cover her scar from the accident she meets Nix who may just be what she's been missing. 

Nix has carried around a picture of a pin-up girl for over a year but hasn't seen or heard anything about her till she blows into his shop with her boyfriend who wants to cover her scar with a floral tattoo. The connection is instant and Nix isn't going to let Scotyln get away. While she may be mute they instantly forge a connection and is determined she came into his life and was meant to be his. 

I like Scotyln right from the start she's sweet but had a rough life which has forced her to do whatever it takes to survive even taking up with a man she doesn't love. You can't help loving Nix he's taking care of his nana who is getting older with memory loss. Plus he's also taking care of his best friends when the need arises. They have this sweet instant connection Nix and Scotyln if only Lincoln wasn't standing in the way. 

Freefall has been on my kindle for years picked it up as a freebie but never got around to reading it. I instantly fell in love with the main characters they are easy to connect with you can't help cheering them on as they need each other. Freefall is a fast-paced hard to put down story. I just had to know what's going to happen next and I needed to see them get together. Highly recommend if you like broken characters finding a happy ever after.
