This is the story of Shane and Lindsay who are next door neighbors in an apartment complex. The two meet after Lindsay is trying to hang a picture wearing 4 inch heels and Shane hears her fall. That starts the plot and it is a great story from there. The reason I liked it so much is that it is really refreshing and doesn't use some of the plot lines that are so popular now (old girlfriend, misunderstanding and miscommunication, insta-love). Shane is a tattoo artist and has some trouble with the IRS which makes Lindsay super convenient for Shane and also how he keeps her in his clutches so he can win her over (which is really sweet). Lindsay is a CPA/Accountant who has moved to LA to "start fresh" . There is a mystery behind Lindsay which I did not see coming and I read a ton of books so I can usually guess the plot twist pretty quickly so the author did a good job with the uncover and discovering of Lindsday's secret (and not at all what you expect). There are a cast of characters in the book which I am assuming will have their own story (or I hope they do) which all work at the tattoo shop.
I liked Lindsay, she was a strong character and had more depth than I expected. Shane was a super sweet guy and who doesn't like a hot guy that is sweet? For the Alpha Male, he was well written and his tattoos added to his character. The book does end in a HAE which is why I gave it a 5 star...NO cliffhangers and the series will have a few more books which I am thankful for.
The author had a good voice and it was well edited so it was an enjoyable read and the characters stayed with me a few days after reading the story.
If you are looking for a quick fun read which doesn't have a cliffhanger this is highly recommended
So here I am sick in bed, and can’t reach my computer because everyone took my electronics from me, and there the book sits. Its looking at me, calling to me. I can’t stop coughing, I can’t sleep, and I need to read. Yeah!
I pick it up, and start reading. Shane Elliot greets me at page one. A tattoo artist, that as I keep reading seems like everything any woman in her wildest dreams would be interested in. I mean, you know. If you like a handsome man, with tattoos, and muscles, and you know—hot.
What’s even better about Shane, he likes to stand out, and have fun. But the bad part, is that Shane is pretending that underneath it all, his problems don’t exist. You can’t do that when your problems are bill collectors, especially when those bill collectors end up being the IRS.
One day, much to Shane’s surprise he ends up with a new neighbor. A person in debt usually needs an account to help them figure out how to get out of debt, and fix their problems correct? Well low and behold the beautiful Lindsay Stevens is just that. Shane thinks he just might be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The only thing is, Lindsay has a past, that she wants to leave in the past. So she tries to keep her distance with Shane, and finds it hard to do so, because after all, he is just the kind of guy that her heart is seemingly yearning for.
Will Lindsay’s past come back to haunt her, and will Shane get his debt back on track? These two must learn to accept one another, for who and what they are, can they do this?
“Permanent” is the first book in the ‘Indelibly Marked Series’. It is a book that will take you into the lives of a tattoo artist, and of course his debt, and long with his lifestyle. The book is written quite exquisitely and you will enjoy every minute of it, as you fall in love with the characters, and learn about them, and their lives. This is a wonderful five-star book, that you will want to read again and again.
Another small warning for those of us who love the tattooed bad ass man, Shane is definitely tattooed and most assuredly yummy but he's not arrogant and he isn't a male whore through the whole book either. He's a genuinely nice guy, cares about his family, loves and supports his friends, is the tattoo artist to the stars, he just can't seem to grasp the business side of the tattoo world.
Shane hits the jackpot when Lindsay moves in next door. Lindsay is an Accountant. She loves being the one to help people figure out their financial issues and solving them. When Shane proves to be her rescuer a few times, she takes it on to help him out of his IRS predicament that he and his "Permanent" Tattoo Studio have found themselves in.
As Lindsay gets drawn into the tattoo world, she can't help but develop feelings for this blue haired tattooed sweetheart that seems to genuinely care about her well being. The problem is, she doesn't think he will accept her. At the same time, Shane is realizing that Lindsay might be the one girl he has been waiting on but can she accept how different he really is.
There is no way for me to truly explain how funny this book is so I am going to include a few quotes below. And the steam ~ once Lindsay and Shane get their heads on right, there are some definitely steamy moments you don't want to miss.
I fell in love with the beautiful soul of Shane through this entire book. Every male character was written with class and a sense of peace and happiness, no major turmoil. I absolutely loved this breath of fresh air in the new adult world and am starting on her newest release Predictions tonight!
