This is LS Anders’ second book in the Exotic Ink series and having thoroughly enjoyed the first one, I could not wait to read Tegan’s story. Yes, I admit it, my expectations were high, but this book exceeded them and I was absolutely riveted from the first page.
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.

Wow, this is the second book in the "Exotic Ink" series and LS Anders did not disappoint. The well laid out plot gripped me from the very first page and the characters were so well developed that Rayne and Tegan made me feel like I was peeking through a window watching as their story unfolded! Up to this point I absolutely loved Vehn from the first book, however, Tegan has a way that just makes you fall in love with him and he holds onto your heart until the turn of the very last page!

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.

Tegan: Exotic Ink Series (Book Two) by LS Anders. 5 Stars

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.

This book is H.O.T!!!! Really HOT! It just took too long for these two stubborn and hardheaded characters to get together! And the lack of communication between them was super frustrating. When they finally got it all out, I was shouting "Alleluia!" all to myself. I also found the timeline a little confusing in the beginning, but maybe it's because it's been a while since I read the first book of the series, Vehn. I still like all the characters and am looking forward to the next one.
