Great storyline until the heroine became extremely ghetto. Upon reading the beach scene where she, a cop, performed a 180 degree switch in personality and became an insecure, "hoodrat", "angry black woman" I gave up the fight and deleted this title from my Kindle.

It earns one star because the storyline and first half of the book are well conceived. Too bad it descended into stereotypes in a bid to cater to the lowest common denominator.

Description: When good cop, Misha Barrett, collides with reformed ex-con, Mark “Nello” Giovanello, it’s instant chemistry. But can they navigate their extreme differences to make a relationship work?

The Good: I love when authors really go opposite with the “opposites attract” trope and Ms. LaRuse absolutely does. TATTED is a very compelling story with an engaging and funny hero. It’s easy to see why a cop would initially be attracted to this bad boy, who turns out to be a truly dedicated love in

I have to honest and say this book just didn't do it for me. I don't know if its because I was expecting a better because of the reviews. I did however enjoy the premise, black lady cop falls for white thug but that is is far as its goes. Misha originally came off as a hard because of her job as a cop, but vulnerable because of her father's murder, her mother's withdrawl and her bad luck with men. Her depiction of Mark was a genuine, an inner city, ex-drug dealer. The author did not allow Mark ...more

4.5 Read. I was really intrigued by the cover but read the blurb and that had me kind of leery. So I read the sample and was absolutely sucked in. Let me start off by saying I absolutely LOVED Mark. Such a sweetie and I loved the fact that he wanted to change for himself and for his woman. When the author was describing his features and I read that he had neck tattoos that kind of put me off, I can deal with full sleeves but neck and facial tattoos are so unattractive to me. I'm so glad I read ...more

4.5 stars. I truly enjoyed this book; It was so right and so much truth. Again, I must say it no matter how people look do not judge them by there appearances. It was lovely how Nello loved Misha so much. This story is what happens now a day. People judge the people who come out of jail and suspect that they just going to do the same thing again so they can go back to prison. But hey, people open your dayum eyes not everyone that gets' release from jail want to go back in. Give them a least the ...more

I am loving this! The pace inwhich the author sets up the characters relationship is just so normal, realistic, and relatable that when they do fall in love( havent gotten there yet) it will not seem rushed like a lot of romance novels tend to seem. While the two do not seem like they would ever cross paths in the real world, I like that the author does not make their situation seem fictitious

It took me a while to get through this even though its not terribly long. I found myself hating Misha and loving Nello! But all in all they were great for each other.
