Ink My Heart

The newest addition to After the Final Chapters, Annie Tremblay reviews Ink My Heary

ink my heart

Even if he weren’t the lead singer of the popular college band, Luminescent Juliet, Justin Noel would have his pick of women. And he does pick. Nightly. Tattooed, blonde, and green eyed, he flashes his dimples and females swoon.

Except for one.

Tattoo artist, Allie Landon, rarely dates, and especially not men like Justin. Though he’s hot enough to melt off permanent ink, she’s done with the bad boy type. But when the ex who broke her heart wants to reunite, desperation has Allie introducing her latest client as her boyfriend. Justin’s more than happy to play the part. He’s completely intrigued by the sexy artist and college student.

However, Allie’s life isn’t what it seems. There’s little room in it or her shattered and confused heart for Justin. But as Justin remains persistent, ignoring the growing attraction—both physical and emotionally—between them becomes more difficult than tattoo removal.

*New Adult. Recommended for mature readers due to language, drug references, and sexual situations.

What Annie Thought

Ink My Heart is a novel from Jean Haus and is the second book in the Luminescent Juliet sereis.

Tattoo’s. Check. Lip Rings. Check. Rock Band. Check. What else does a good book need? Ohh that is right you need a hot leading male that makes your panties wet with excitement. Justin will do that with one side smile.

Justin is a rich pretty boy, who lives life to the fullest. His parents were never around, so he did whatever he could to get their attention. That meant tattoos, sleeping around and being in a band. One night he stumbles into a tattoo shop, and as soon as he hears Allie’s voice something inside him is intrigued! The only problem is how can he possibly make her give him a chance when all of his past sexual encounters keep coming out of the woodworks.

Being a female tattoo artist has Allie used to guys coming into her shop and flirting with her. She has learned to develop walls. Afterall, she has been burned one to many times. She has secrets and scars from her past, and she is just not sure she is ready for her heart to be broken again. Justin is just that. A heartbreak waiting to happen.

Justin, Justin, Justin! What can I say about this man other than…..HOLY HOTNESS! He is super-hot and can make any girl in her right mind swoon. Who doesn’t love a bad boy?

The characters in this book where a little off. Don’t get me wrong I did have a connection with them, but it just wasn’t right. I needed more from them. I was slightly disappointed. It is almost like there was too much drama, and not enough character development. For this reason, I found myself skipping through the paragraphs. I give this book 3.5 stars!

Just Add Spice – Carol E. Wyer (Safkhet Soul)

Unknown-232What they say:

‘Escape from reality comes in patent-leather Prada kneeboots

Dawn Ellis needs to escape from her painfully dull existence. Her unemployed husband spends all day complaining about life, moping around, or fixing lawnmowers on her kitchen table. The local writing class proves to be an adequate distraction with its eccentric collection of wannabe authors and, of course, the enigmatic Jason, who soon shows a romantic interest in her.

Dawn pours her inner frustrations into her first novel about the extraordinary exploits of Cinnamon Knight, an avenging angel — a woman who doesn’t believe in following the rules. Cinnamon is ruthless and wanton, inflicting suffering on any man who warrants it. Little does Dawn realise that soon the line between reality and fiction will blur. Her own life will be transformed, and those close to her will pay the price. Find out what happens in Just Add Spice by best-selling author Carol E Wyer.’

What I thought

I must say I thought that reading a book within a book would be quite confusing. I am one of these people that cannot read two books at once. However once I got into the swing of it I was looking forward to when the stories switched. I don’t know which character I enjoyed more.

This book could be any of us, either now or in 10 years time. Dawn is frustrated feeling unattractive and unloved. She starts writing and finds herself almost living vicariously through her alter ego. Mmmm we can all be guilty of that…

I love how she is feeling so frumpy and her alter ego is egging her on to change her life. She finds who she really is through writing.

This really is a very charming book. Its warm, engaging and really very witty. A most entertaining read. I love how the lines blurred, cos lets be honest when you are writing that its quite often what happens. I am sure most authors have left a little of themselves in each book they write. It has a great balance between what could possible be real life and fantasy!
