Short novella about two people who have just gotten out of relationships and know each other in a common friend circle. Plenty of sex and I liked how the hero stood up for her.

Short. Cute. Sweet. Hot.

Pretty much sums up this read.

This book was simply okay. It was nothing special and not particuarly engaging either. There's one fairly yummy love scene which stood out for me and I liked that the author added a bit of emotional depth at the end, but the book didn't really do it for me overall.

Quick, cute with some nice steam...

The librarian thing interested me and the fact that the so called bad boy was not bad at all, but sweet, monogomous and hard working...He just liked to tattoo and get piercings! He had several and she had a few too...

I’m going to be completely honest here and admit I picked this book up because it featured a librarian. I like tattooed heroes, add in a naughty librarian, and you have a recipe for a perfect book right? Unfortunately, those were really the only two things I enjoyed about this book.

The story starts out with Leni getting a tattoo from Jamie. He has tattooed her sister previously but always had a bit of a crush on Leni. Once the tat

So someone else said that even though this is a novella it was worth the price and I could not agree more. This is one of if not the best novella I have ever read. I wish it was a full length because I loved the book so much. Leni and Jamie were great and I loved reading about there relationship; and the supporting characters were just as good. Jayne Kingston knows how to write her heroes, Jamie was a hot, and possessive hero and I couldn't get enough of him. I could not recommend this book more ...more

I highly recommend reading this book. It was hot, short enough for a quick read, romantic and I felt good at the end. I LOVED the hero, Jamie. I loved the dirty talk, the hot sex, the romantic moves. My only quibble was I could have loved this couple for 20,000 more words, but that's not a con when considering this book. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Kingston's stories.

Mmmm I love me a tattooed alpha.

I'm always a little amazed when a short story manages to draw me in because I like details, I like knowing the characters and the world they inhabit. I felt I knew the people in this story...not to mention the sex was pretty hot.

I thought this was a good read, but to short. I felt there could have been more character and plot development. This is a good book to read if you are in the mood for a quick romance with a HOT tattoo artists. I did think Jamie was very swoon worthy...what can I say I have a thing for tattoos;)

Only Jamie Rodriguez isn’t as off-limits as Leni thinks. Privately single for months, Jamie finds himself more than looking forward to having the hot little librarian in his chair. And when she accidentally r

NOOOO Way too short!! I probably would have been OK with the shortness of this book if there had been an epilogue. I wanted more. I want to know exactly where Jamie and Leni's future went.

Oh well, this was a fun book to read. I loved it. Leni goes in to get a tattoo done by Jamie who she as always had a bit of a crush on. She knew him through her ex boyfriend and also knows that Jamie doesn't date his friends ex's. Jamie has always liked Leni and can't deny the strong attraction that consumes hi

3.5 Stars

Short and sweet read but did not lack in heat. I am a sucker for the shy librarian types that go for a ride on the wild side and end up finding love. Total sucker. This was what this book was about and did I mention the hero, Jamie, has a piercing along with tattoos ... HOT HOT HOT.

Emily
Leni Brewster’s plan to get the matching tattoo her twin has, has gone slightly awry. Now alone and with tattoo artist Jamie Rodriguez, who she has silently lusted over, she feels a little off kilter. Recently dumping her boyfriend who shares friends with Jamie, Leni considers him off limits, besides he has a girlfriend or does he?

Ink Lust has been on my to-read list for a few weeks, now. I opened it up planning to read for about thirty minutes before going to bed. Two hours later, I'd hit the end, but wasn't ready to say goodbye to Jammie and Leni. The sparks between this couple fly off the page. Miss Kingston delivers a story that is full of emotion and passion that draws the reader in.

I highly recommend this story and can't wait for more from Kingston.

I'm thinking I give this book 3 and a half stars but only because it was so short and their wasn't really anything specific going on. There was no mystery to it or much drama or anything significant other than the both of them just going through break ups. It was still a cute little love story though! And I enjoyed it.
Nikki
For a book so short, I would totally pay the price any day for such a steamy read! Quite enjoyable! The characters were great and the writing was also. I do enjoy my tattooed hunks who know what they're doing in the bedroom and couch.... *sigh* Anywho.... Great book, great plot, just wish I hadn't read it so fast. ㋡

There is something about a gorgeous man with tattoos that gets me all happy. This was one of those books that has my kind of guy. I really enjoyed this book. I just wish it was a lot longer. Jamie & Leni are an awesome couple. Love the kinkster behind the librarian persona.

Wow! This was a shot read, but a great story. This author has a way with words & knows how to make them work. The story had a good flow and lots of chemistry. I found it very easy to connect with the characters.

This book was just okay. It was a bit short, which didn't give much in the way of character development, and there was very little build up to the relationship.

The tats and piercings are hot as hell, as well as the sex, but the story behind it all was kind of cheesy. The first 40% was the best part. Abracadabra for the win though.

I really enjoy reading this, even it was short sometimes you just want to read a short story with a good story.
Jamie makes true to hot tattoo guys, you just want to eat him up.

Really good, sweet and hot love story. A lot of story packed into a novella, yet it didn't feel rushed.
