Ronnie "...female tattoo artist with a thing for fictional heroes,"
meets Sergeant First Class Kale Emerson "a fuckingly handsome Captain America impersonator."
What a pair, right!?! I was totally hooked. Ronnie was a stubborn-ball busting-feisty-Bitch, and I Loved Her, even though she made me want to slap her at times. She was such a strong character so you knew that the man to break through had to be stronger. Kale did not disappoint with all mind fuckery, "he loved that he m ...more

Kale Emerson ‘soldier’ is home for a short break from a tour over seas. He’s only ...more
"You can stop mind fucking me now."
Kale's eyes came close to popping out of his head. "Excuse me?"
Ronnie rolled her eyes. "Let's get this straight, Soldier. I'm not sleeping with you. You can get it out of your pretty little head, and I suggest you do so before I stick a needle to your skin."
I saw this book on Facebook, thought the cover was beautiful, the blurb interesting and the next thing I knew, I had to have it. Maybe it was the kind of day I was having or if I was just in ...more

When I saw this book, I thought it was going to be a good read it wasnt.
This book featured good characters which could have made a good story line but it seriously lacked content! Majority of the book took place in a span of a few days then they fell in love! (SERIOUSLY, are these people for real???)
Ronnie was is a beautiful and sexy tatoo artist whose heart was broken when he fiancee who is in the army cheats on her. She decided to cut off men and love from her li ...more
I read the debut novella, The Valentine’s Arrangement and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Ronnie is a heroine that you absolutely fall in love with because she’s not a damsel in distress. She knows what she wants and she knows how to handle her issues but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t feel the betrayal of what life can bring. And then there’s Kale. What’s not to love about a man in uniform who looks like Captain America?? I will take Captain America ...more

*I was sent this book by the author in exchange for an honest review*
Sexy, steamy, and enjoyable. Kelsie did, in my opinion, a great job with her first book. She created a steamy read, which was fun, quick and enjoyable. Did I mention steamy?? Yes, this book was hot! It was a great romance for the mature crowd. And one I am so glad I got to read.
Kelsie was a joy to talk to, so when she asked me to read and review this book, I jumped on it! Why? Well, the synopsis she sent me ...more
Ronnie is a sarcastic, snarky, take no BS, get to the point straight shooter very much like myself...and like me she HATES Valentines day (or as I like to call it "singles awareness day") because to Ronnie

Ronnie is a tattoo artist living near an army base who is waiting for her soldier ex-fiance to return from overseas so she can sell their house and move away from his cheating a**.
What she doesn't count on is having Kale Emerson walk into the shop asking for a back tattoo.

OMG...I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED this book!! It was everything that I look for in a read and more and I fell in love with Kale and Ronnie instantly.
Ronnie was such a great character-just loved everything about her, from her tattoos~to her high heels~to her attitude. I loved the way she interacted with Mic, Jordan and especially Kale~loved her witty comebacks!! Her attitude was so harsh but she could be sweet and funny also. I felt bad for her because of how she grew up and what h ...more

I wasn't crazy about Ronnie to begin with. She was pretty rough around the edges and I personally don't understand why Kale would even be attracted to her, considering the attitude she had. Kale is a sweet, sexy guy that is in the army and on ...more
Captain America eat your heart out! There is a new hero in town and his name is SFC Kale Emerson! *sigh* I want a Kale of my own! <3
The author delivers a story that will make you smile, tug at your heartstrings, and make you swoon so make sure your sitting down while reading it ;-)

Here is my review :)
This one was special for me for many reasons. I enjoyed it because I LOVE me a kick ass girl! I am and never have been the type to be pushed around so reading about a girl who is a no bullshit kinda girl I instantly fell in love with the girl! I absolutely love that she is hot and has tattoos. It is usually the guys that are covered in them and are hot! My husband was in ...more
This is Kelsie Leverich's first book andI think she did a great job with it. This book was hot and sexy. You felt the chemistry and sexual tension between the two main characters. And I found myself rooting for these two to have more than just a sexual relationship.
Ronnie isa tattoo artist who is strong, confident in what she does and is one tough cookie. She says what she wants and doesn't care what anyon ...more
I was in the mood for a military-themed romance and saw that I had this one in my audiobook library. This book was entertaining, but overall I just thought it was okay.
Ronnie Clark is a sassy tattoo artist who doesn't do relationships. After her last boyfriend broke her heart, she has sworn off men. I liked that she didn't take crap from anyone, including a hot soldier named Kale in her tattoo chair. Kale is home on leave from Iraq and he is looking for a lady for a good time, not thing seri ...more
Ms. Leverich wrote a very sexy story here with great characters, awesome sexual chemistry and dialogue that you will enjoy.

An arrangement was made and broken between the two of them.
His injury brought them back together.
They realized that they "fit together like lock and key"
Tattoo artist & soldier finding love
Kale was great... but at times, a little too great. I thought he was an amazing guy and I guess, to make the story a bit more interesting, he had to be the polar opposite of Ronnie. I wanted him to be a bit edgier and not so perfect. I guess that would be my only complaint with him.
Now Ronnie... ...more
First of all this is the perfect book for me. LOVED it! The two main characters Ronnie and Kale are dreamy. She is the tattoo artist with the attitude and he is Sergeant First Class Kale Emerson. Home from Iraq for a few weeks and excited about the return. He isn't interested in relationships, she was cheated on. He goes to get his first tatoo being a memorial piece for his Iraq brothers. First and secondary characters were well developed and likable.
The book is written between the characters a ...more
First I have to say that if Ronnie weren't a fictional character she would totally be my new bff. I love her sassy mouth. Bitch is fun! lol
Now Kale, awww........talk about "Captain America" manlyness. Gotta love that shit!
I'm rating this book between a 3.5 and 4 because there were definitely parts I could have gone without, but wanted more of a get-to-know-you from them. Also, and this may sound ridiculously cheesy, but I want to read/hear the "I love you" and there wasn't one. I ...more
I didn't know why I even bothered opening this when 1) I end up skimming most parts. It's so predictable and the girl was totally obnoxious and this guy was also kinda annoying, and 2) if you look closely to the cover, the girl looks bored to even care and the guy has this look which I can't interpret, then 3) they watched Twilight because apparently that's the girl's favorite movie. Figures.
On the other hand, this was a good, morning read. It's short and doesn't need to work up a lot of though ...more
Things I like
1) Kale is a freaking hot soldier. Woot!
2) Something about Kale got me smitten all over him.
Things I dislike
1) Ronnie's attitude.
2) Too many FUCK word, like in every FUCKING sentence, I got FUCKING irritated. There.
3) Lack of chemistry between main characters.
4) Instant decision on commitment.
5) Sex with an injured man. HAHA you have got to be kidding me?
I'm sorry but this book wasn't for me. Stars are for Kale, okay.
Read on your own peril. ...more
