Hot Ink (Inked in the Steel City, #1) by Ranae Rose
4 Stars
I have been wanting to read this author for sometime but I haven't been able to for personal reasons, so when I saw that the author was willing to spare a few copies of the first three books of the series I couldn't resist to apply for one. I am SO glad I did.

We have in this first book Mina a bank teller who is secretly crushing for her tattoo artist. She doesn't think any man will when something long term with her because she isn't able to give the relationship the time it needs. But t

The place to go in Pittsburgh to get your ink done is at the Hot Ink Studio. The men and women of Hot Ink are so much more than their art. Read these fast hot sweet reads and you will see what I mean.

HOT INK (Book 1)
Bank teller Mina feels 24 going on 40. As guardian for her wheelchair bound 14 year old sister she doesn't get out much and can’t identify with her peers. She meets sexy tattoo artist Eric when she decides to get a rather intricate tattoo. He is nothing but professional while giving

The first book in this series is about Mina, a 24 year old bank teller who is also the guardian of her 16 year old, wheel chair-bound sister.

Hot Ink
4 stars

Mina is falling for her sexy tattoo artist Eric. Unfortunately, she's also convinced she has too much baggage and a relationship won't work out. Thankfully, Eric disagrees.
A sweet and sexy read, Hot Ink can be read as a standalone and does have an HEA.


Innocent Ink
4.5 stars

Having loved and lost before, Jed is leery of getting involved with someone again, especially the exuberant redhead he finds he simply can't resist.
Karen doesn't have a shy bone in her body. She's straig

The first book started great hen just bombed with the lame ending that was way to rushed. The second book was so much better more ironed out to make a complete and believable story. The third was so so. I liked the story but some of it was a little corney. I'm not sure if I will get the second set since these had great sex scenes but the "love" stories were a bit unbelievable.

Enjoyed this set very much - stories about, gasp, Grown Ups! You know, adults in their 20's and 30's who actually act like adults, very refreshing. Very likable characters and believable storylines, lovely love stories and plenty of sizzle.

3 sweet romances

This box set was 3 sweet romances that were modern day stories. Three tattoo artists and the people who they fall for. Each one is unique and expands family obligations, grief, unplanned pregnancy, and a vengeful ex. Nice rainy day weekend read.

I read mainly for the descriptions of tattoos! The rest was okay - story #3 was the slowest and most draggy but okay.

I just couldn't get into this book. Can't seem to figure out why, but it was a struggle all the way. Think I'll set it aside for a bit, then come back and see if it was just me.

I write what I know and love: adult romance with blue-collar heroes and real-life flavor. Tattoos, handcuffs and men in uniform are a few of my favorite things, and it shows in my thirty+ published books.

I live in the South with my man in uniform, who I married for the entertainment value. Just kidding - it was the handcuffs, err, true love. ;)

So far, our happily ever after includes a couple kids,
