Colin Spencer is a tattoo artist with a past he’d prefer to keep a secret. Actually, he has a few secrets that he’d rather people didn’t know about, which is why Colin doesn’t do commitment. But when a shy sailor approaches him at the gym, Colin finds this guy pushing all his buttons.
Growing up in a conservative family, then escaping with the Navy, Daniel Moore is an unsure virgin who feels like he can’t share his true self with anyone. Seeing Colin—and his tattoos—at the gym are the sign Daniel needs to finally get those tattoos he’s always wanted, and maybe try his hand at flirting.
As Colin and Daniel spend more time together, their awkward hesitations turn into a deep passion neither expected. But with both men harboring secrets, will their relationship be able to survive their insecurities and become something beautiful?
Back Piece by L.A. Witt is a sexy, emotional journey of two people learning to love and finding acceptance for who they really are.

Back Piece turned out to be a sweet romantic story. It’s not how I usually enjoy my M/M reads. I like my M/Ms to be more on the edgy/gritty side. This was the total opposite and I still enjoyed it very much. Aside from Colin and Daniel’s journey, Daniel himself had a journey of self-discovery and acceptance. Both journey’s were very well intertwined in the book.
I don’t want to give away any details about anything but I do want to say that the pace of the story and their relationship fit perfectly with the circumstances of the leads … that sounds vague, I know LOL But it’s just another point to let you know how perfectly well this story was written for the content it held. It needed to be sweet and not edgy so I’m glad it was written that way 🙂
There’s only one minor thing I would have liked developed better and that is Daniel’s coming out to his family. It felt like it was just thrown in and it should have been huge. At least in my opinion.
