Synopsis:


Raelyn Jennings has survived the unthinkable. She’s been given a second chance to live, to breathe, to feel. Her ability to overcome such a traumatic hurdle has created armor around her heart. But beyond her shield is fear, a consuming deep one, of the unknown. Raelyn vows to herself that she’ll solely focus on the one constant in her life, her career as the CEO for a prestigious accounting firm.
Damien Heathman’s unrelenting determination has made him a powerful, respected man. He’s sexy and confident and utterly breathtaking. His dominance and strength is evident in every purposeful stride, every meaningful look, and every soft caress. 
Raelyn has worked with Damien’s company, Heathman Enterprises, for many years, but they’ve never crossed paths—until now. 
Damien’s presence fills a room. He steals Raelyn’s breath and sparks her broken heart back to life. Once Damien sets eyes on Raelyn, there is no turning back. He wants her, and he’ll stop at nothing to have her. Not even the dark secrets hidden behind his tattoos will stand in his way. 
The chemistry is undeniable. The passion is palpable.
Can Damien convince Raelyn that he is worth the risk? Or will Raelyn allow her past to control her future, feeling the chance of another heartache is too great to bear?

Favorite Quotes:


“One minute, Iris could be the sweet person someone had ever met, and the next, she would be a complete hard-ass.  She was a teddy bear with a grizzly bear heart.”

“I felt like I was in high school on my first date again.  Only this time, I didn’t have braces and untamed bangs.”

“Those gray eyes burned into mine, and then he kissed me so reverently that I thought my own heart might stop beating.”

“Damien wasn’t a man of many words, yet the few had spoken touched me in a way that no one had ever done before.”

My Review:


Tattooed Emotions was considerably angsty and a much heavier read than I was anticipating, I guess I should have expected that since the word “Emotions” is in the title.  The story was well detailed, interesting, and a bit frustrating.  This couple does not communicate well and hold back significant secrets from each other.  But when they are in alignment it is enjoyable, sweet, and steamy.  One item that continues to prod at me is the character’s love of toast with both butter and peanut butter, I have never heard of that before, yet cannot bring myself to try it.
