★★★★ 5 Devoted Stars ★★★★
I received a copy of this book via Inkslinger promotions as part of a blog tour. Thank you!
Raelyn Jennings knows one thing for certain. She loves Damien Heathman with every fiber of her being. A life without him wouldn’t be one worth living.
Damien has never loved a single soul—until Raelyn. She heals the pain that has tainted the deepest part of his heart. She is his everything, his single reason for breathing. Damien’s relentless determination refuses to let anyone or anything stand in his way of being with her.
But soon, Damien’s and Raelyn’s pasts begin to collide with their future in ways they never thought possible, testing their undying love for one another.
Damien’s dark secrets from the scars hidden beneath his tattoos threaten to reveal themselves while Raelyn is faced with impossible decisions that need to be made.
Can Damien convince Raelyn to take a risk in hopes of securing the longevity of their future? Or will Raelyn choose the safe path that also comes with a limit?
There isn’t any time to waste, for the clock never stops ticking.
EEEEKKK. What a PERFECT follow-up to Tattooed Emotions. I totally got a book-hangover from this one. I cannot wait to continue the journey with Raelyn and Damien in March of 2016 for Forever Tattooed. In the second installment of the Tattooed Billionaire series, readers will see that the love that blossomed between Damien and Raelyn has grown so much deeper. We get more of a feel for the characters emotions and they open up quite a bit more about their feelings. This is something I absolutely love to see in book; the characters changing and growing like people do in real life. This my friends is what sets this series apart from others. The fact that the author is able to make her characters relatable and realistic in terms of their loves, lives, and passions. What a beautiful story.
“The very second Raelyn walked into my life, I knew there was a purpose. It wasn’t so that she could soften my tainted heart, but it was so that I could fill hers and love her the way she deserved to be. I never expected her to steal mine in return. She saved me… from myself and from my past.”
Damien knew he found his forever the second he laid eyes on Raelyn Jennings. But Raelyn is sick. Her previous medical issues have painfully and suddenly resurfaced and the two are heading down a road of devastation. But no matter how bad it gets Damien stays by Raelyn’s side and continues to love her unconditionally.
Raelyn though is afraid. She is afraid that she won’t have the future she craves with Damien. She is afraid of what will happen in the days, weeks, and months to come. But most of all, she is afraid to let Damien know her true feelings for him.
“I loved Damien so completely and thoroughly that I wasn’t sure if my heart could handle such profound feelings.”
But both Damien and Raelyn know that their feelings are pure and unconditional. They show their feelings through their actions when words cannot be spoken. And they live in each moment as if it were their last because they don’t know what kind of a future they may have together.
“We are stronger than our scars, Raelyn, whether they are visible to the eye or superficial. Our pasts will not define our futures.”
Once again, this is a breathtakingly beautiful story. Readers do not want to miss out on this one. It will claw at your heart, reach deep into your soul, and bring about raw emotions. I loved every minute of this book and cannot WAIT for the series to continue in March. Well done! A+ - amazing!
