Chloe ~ Independent, strong willed, stubborn, beautiful, passionate, loyal, loving.
Timmy ~ Domineering, arrogant, over protective, moody, sexy, adonis, gorgeous.
Absolutely loved this !! Amazing story and plot, brilliantly written with plenty of angst and drama.
This was a brilliant story telling how a tragedy brings 2 people together and no matter how hard they try to deny how they feel for each other it's as obvious as the Tattoos on Timmy that they feel deeply

I received this ARC for an honest review and it's my first book by Ann Grech. I absolutely LOVED Ink'd and look forward to the next book in the series. I had to do some research because I like to catch up on those authors I enjoy. Ann was born in Melbourne and during the day she's in the corporate world and usually found behind a desk or lecturing a room full of students. The evening hours find her at home as wife and mom, reading, writing, cooking or cleaning house.

Ink'd is a well-written story

Another 5 star read by Ann Grech. I'm definitely a fan of Ann's writing style, it's solid, descriptive and has a unique ability to weave itself deep into my soul. I had no clue what to expect with this one, was never really sure where it was heading and I was pleasantly surprised all the way through. I love the way I was able to get to know the secondary characters and I felt every moment of dread, fear and heartache along the way. The sex was on fire and left me a little edgy when I had to put ...more

I received this for an honest review I have to say I just am falling in love with this author one book at time... This books rocked my freaking socks off. I fell in love in the first page and was taken on quite the ride and one that I wasn't sure I wanted to get off.

Do you need a Dom/Sub book then this is the book for you and once you pick it up you will not want it to end.

I absolutely loved Timmy and Chloe together.. Timmy is a dom and Chloe is a sub although a very strong willed one at that

I received and ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book that I have read by Ann and I look forward to reading more from her, especially any in this series. I loved all the characters in it and can't wait to read their stories as well. This book has the despair, angst, anger, love, oh who am I kidding you will fell it all with this book.

In the beginning an event occurs that will bring Chloe and Timmy together, but Timmy doesn't realize that it isn't just an insolated occurrenc

I am on the fence with how I feel about Ink’d; and that is not a bad thing really because it means that I am curious enough to want to read the next book when it releases. I liked the idea behind the plot, I liked that it was a quick read, and I liked that it appears all the books will be tied into each other because of the heroines being sisters. Timmy was hot and alpha and dominant; something I tend to like in my heroes, Chloe was younger and somewhat innocent

This is my first book I've read by Ann Grech and I absolutely LOVED it!! I want to keep her in my pocket & have her write for me everyday!!

This story is about Chloe & Timmy but it's so much more. It's about 3 sisters Chloe, Cleo Claire and how they are dealing with things that have happened in their lives. This book mostly focuses on Chloe & Timmy's relationship.

I loved Chloe's spunk when standing up for what she wants. I'm a sucker for a hot alpha man but a strong leading heroine w

I thought this was a great book. It was the first time I have read anything by this author and now I want to read more. This book was exactly what I think of when I think of erotic romance. It was a very intense read and I couldn't put it down. I thought the setting of the story added to the intensity of the novel. I would definitely recommend this book to other readers. Grech writes as though she is directing a movie and the reader is placed in the middle of all the action. This book is going t ...more

This is a full book but it seems almost like a serial set to me because there are things that aren’t solved just in this book but it doesn’t leave you hanging about these particular characters which is a definite plus for this author! I really liked these characters. I love how take charge Chloe can be but then she turns into a purring kitten in other scenes. Fair warning: The sex scenes rock. Rawr! I totally want to trade first times with Chloe. LOL

ARC Reviewed for A Book Lovers Emporium for an honest review.

This is a nice little story with a lot more to give.

The story is of Chloe, 1 of 3 sisters, and Timmy a tattoo artist. For the strong character that Timmy is I do feel that the name is a bit weak.. but that's just my personal point of view. The more I got in to the story the faster I read.

This is going to be a series so the story isn't concluded.

The sex scenes are hot. The threat from a local gang of bikers was very suspenseful.

Given an ARC for honest review. I think this is going to be a great series. This book leaves questions, as with any good series. But it is not a cliffhanger in regards to these characters. I love Chloe's strength and attitude. Timmy is just trying to do the right thing by everyone. I am eager to see how these sisters stories unfold.

I want to start off by saying where in the world has this author been! I love me some alpha domineering male characters and Ann gives us one heck of an alpha male in Timmy’s character. This is my first book by this author and I can assure you that I won’t be my last. I completely loved Ink’d. Ink’d is a strong story with two very well developed main characters, Chloe and Timmy. We also are treated with secondary characters that play a role in this story and in future s

Love amidst tragedy and danger…

Chloe Hollyoak is young, artistic and optimistic about the future as she settles in to a new job and a new home. Little did she know her life was going to change in an explosive instant. Timmy D’Aristotle was older, he thought too old for the lovely new employee at the tattoo salon, but that didn’t stop him from looking. And wishing.

“She was potent, her frailty and inner strength drawing him like an addict to their drug of choice.”

Ink'd is my first book by Ann Grech and I'm hooked! I couldn't get enough.

Chloe Hollyoak has just finished up getting her fine arts degree, and begins her dream job in her hometown as a tattoo apprentice. Life is going well until a horrifying hit leaves her and her sisters alone. With her life spiraling out of control as she tries to hold it together, a powerful biker named Blade wants to own and destroy her. Tall, dark, and freakin hot Timmy has to rescue her.

Holy hell...Timmy was one delicious naughty talking bossy man. Now don't get me wrong. I totally wanted to give him a shake or two along the way in his story with Chloe. Poor sweet Chloe. My heart broke for her with the tragedy that she and her sisters suffer. It was such a shock within the story that it almost felt like a punch in the stomach reading it. Ann did so well in that part of telling Chloe's story. From the accident to all that happened right afterwards. You just felt their shock and ...more

Loss, hot sex, dominant Alpha man, evil MC, hot tattoos and so much more describe this book. While it is a part of a series and the next two books can be read as a standalone you will get the true feel of the story if you read the books in order as the next books will explain events that occurred in this book that left us waiting to see what will transpire next in this series.

This is a great start to the series. These stories are all going to be linked together and I can’t wait to get the rest of the story because I definitely need answers.

Chloe has just come back to town to start her new job at her at the tattoo shop. Right when she is getting settled in, the unthinkable happens. I felt so bad for Chloe and her sisters. But Timmy is there to help Chloe pick up the pieces and try to get her life on track.

I loved Timmy but there were times he made me so mad. I wante

I fell in love with this story and the characters. I cant wait to read more in this series as they come out. The characters and the story line were very well developed and the book left you wanting more and more. You never knew what was going to happen next and when it did there was a lot of shock factors throughout the book.

Chloe and Timmy first meet at the beginning of the book when something happens and shatters Chloe's world. They later meet up when Chloe starts working an apprenticeship at

I received this ARC for an honest review and i loved it so much i loved it so much I wanted to support the author so I bought it too. This was my first book to read by Ann Grech and not my last. I am already counting the days for the next book in A Hollyoak Sisters Novel to come out,

I was excited to see a set of sisters (3) like my own family of sisters and like that it started with the youngest like myself. Chloe and Timmy are the main characters in this book and they are 14 years apart in age.

A little too much........but not enough. I can't say I loved Timmy but I didn't dislike him either. What's in a name? I guess it was hard for me to envision a big, hot, alpha male tat artist named Timmy, but I digress......

I just could get with the meth lab, biker bullies, suspect cop, and D/s relationship, sounds like a winner winner chicken dinner....Right???

The sex scenes were on point. Chloe, Timmy's young and innocent love interest was actually a goo

I have mixed feelings about this book. The book has steamy sex scenes along with a little action. The ending also leaves you with many questions. I hope the author continues this series, so that they bad guys are taken down for what they did.
Chloe and her sisters have suffered a horrible loss of both parents. They want answers to help find themm closure. The sheriff is no help, I honestly think he's dirty and has his hand in the MC business. There's a mystery involving within this book and I hop

Well hot damn! From the very beginning this read had me hooked! We get one hell of a rattle and it throws Chloe and her sisters for one massive loop of shock. Chloe is one awesome spitfire who has massive amounts of strength within her. She is doing her best to be strong for her loved ones and stay above water with everything that's trying to overtake her. Then we have sexy, dominant Timmy. He sees her and he knows he shouldn't touch. Only th

This book had everything to make it a great success. There was unbelievable drama and suspense with some sexy and spicy romance going on that made it impossible to put down this book until the end. This was a love triangle of utmost portions. Chloe was a strong willed woman that was forced to deal with tragedy and loss in her young life. Timmy was instantly attracted to Chloe but felt the age difference was too much to overcome but that did not stop him from wanting her in his life. Blade just w ...more

INK'D 1/2

The first three to four chapters start off very rushed , I had to reread quite a bit just to figure out what was happening. Afterv thatvthings started getting good and being a fairly enjoyable read. I did feel the the use of character names was a bit excessive at times ( the same name several times in one sentence ). Overall it was a good read once you get caught up as to what the story was about. I was slightly disapointed we never learned exactly what the deal was w
