Tegan is the new tattoo artist at Exotic Ink, the Manhattan tattoo studio, where Rayna, newly widowed, also works. Despite being attracted to each other both carry quite a lot of baggage. Rayna’s husband cheated on her a LOT, and died in the arms of his latest flame - a woman who had been part of the Exotic Ink team. Tegan is in the process of trying to divorce a wife whose self-destructive lifestyle and behaviour destroyed any love he might have had for her long ago. On top of this, for both, issues of abandonment and loss of self-esteem simmer close to the surface, leaving their ability to trust, severely damaged if not irrevocably lost. Tegan hides behind a rather grim veneer, one Rayna is slowly shattering, but every time they get close, those insecurities rear their ugly heads and any chance of a HEA slips just out of reach.
Within the Exotic Ink series, LS Anders has created a captivating set of characters, who are more than simply work colleagues, they’re a family. Okay, they are a messy, somewhat dysfunctional, chaotically crazy family but one whose love and support is second to none and one, which provides a wonderful backdrop to Tegan and Rayna’s romance - hot and steamy though it might be (& believe me it sizzles).
Tegan and Rayna’s journey isn’t always a comfortable read – their story dragged me kicking and screaming through a whole gamut of emotions, and there were times, even though I knew why he behaved the way he did, when I wanted to slap Tegan. But then, life and romance and love isn’t always perfect, there are so many obstacles ready to trip us up - its how we handle those obstacles that gives us the strength to take that leap of faith, finally believing someone will catch us before we crash into an ignominious heap.
What more can I say - I loved this book, and am eagerly awaiting the third instalment.
This book sucked me in and had me a blubbering mess of happy tears by the ending.
Wow!!! Now here's a book to remember. I'm gonna have to grab the paperback when it comes out just so I can hold it physically and Sigh at it.
Tegan's character is the typical bad boy, he's inked, built and has a attitude in the beginning. He has definitely had it rough starting out in life. As you get into the story you'll find that there is so much more to him. Sigh
Rayna's character is pretty reserved, she has the right to be with what her ex husband and family did to her. She is one beautiful person, you'll see.
Both are Tattoo artist who work at Exotic Ink, both are in similar situations that bring them together in the most mystical way it seems.
This book is Compelling, Intense, Stunning, Agonizing Heartwarming, and just plain Awesome.
Mature readers, strong language and sexual content.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book by its author.
Reviewed for Nook Books and More.
R/R 8/2/17 to 8/3/17
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. However, i loved it so much that I one clicked a copy and you should too.
The story 5 stars - an emotional ride that will leave you a bit of a mess but well worth it
The characters again 5 stars both the lead and the supporting are well developed, extremely vivid - you are there with them throughout the story
I can't think of anything I disliked about this book - except the antagonist - and there are a couple both seem to get their just desserts in the end though so I was happy
Tegan is trying to rid himself of his past - wife and all -
but it seems now matter how hard he tries to make the right choices, to keep the world at arm's length - Fate, being the fickle bi@tch she is, feels the need to reach out and pull the rug out from under him
Rayana has been through the wringer and come out a little worse for wear - but damn if she isn't determined to rebuild and move forward with her life- It's always the quiet ones you have to watch out for
I received a complimentary copy of this book though I did purchase book one - because Yes I had to know how it all started :)
Overall, this was a really great read and Other will be continuing with these series, because I have fallen in love with these characters:)
