Indelible You is the 1st planned full-length novel in the Imagine Ink 5 book series.
Although each book in the series is the complete tale of a couple, they are NOT considered stand-alone novels. For the richest experience, read them in order.
(This book is slated for a rewrite.)

***************

Ink is indelible.
So is love, at least in theory.

Walker is an over-inked, reformed

3.5 stars

This is a new author for me. Let me start by saying I started out loving this book and then went .. what?!?! ….. This is definitely a love story about misunderstanding, pain and healing. But for me after wanting someone so deeply for five years and in a heated moment a secret is revealed you walk away and say the things you do … ehhhh … it was almost as if the book burned me at that moment. I get it .. that’s the preface of the drama that th

Walker Reid realized he loved Erika awhile ago. Erika is best friends with his sister and after five years of friendship a line you don't cross, especially when she has shown zero interest in anything romantic with him.

Erika has loved Walker from afar for awhile. After getting up the courage to tell him, it is a passionate night only to be ruined by a confession about her past and Walker walking away and refusing to talk to her. Erika returns home only to fall into herself. Walker begins a path

Uhhh. IDK how to review this book. The writing wasn't bad, I just wanted more normal adult acting MCs. They were both fucking stupid, but I liked them. They didn't communicate, but I really enjoyed the feel of the book. Some scenarios were unbelievable; I just kept on reading. I guess I'll say this series has potential.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again. More than anything, I appreciate a book that is different than everything else out there. Indelible You is definitely that. I was about 7% into the story thinking something was wrong, because it felt like the end of so many other books. That was just the beginning though.

It’s very easy to fantasize about a tatted up, possessive bad boy alpha. It’s a totally different things to be in a conflict or have a relationship issue with one. Verlene Landon giv

This book has almost every romance cliché imaginable. From hidden feelings, to misunderstandings, to hasty conclusions, mysterious other women, horrible childhoods, tattooed hotties, fashionista friends, surprise revelations and terrible tragedy….. I know…I fucking loved that too!!

Sometimes you just need that book with all the angst! This is it. I love the angst! The delicate dance that Walker and Erika engage in for over five years, is impressive, and right when you think, YES, they’

Frustrating beyond belief

This book started off ok, and for the first 20% I had high hopes for it, but was a big letdown. From 16-62%% there is no interaction between Erika and Walker. And only then was it text messages. In fact, they aren't even in each other's presence until 84%. This book was filled with nothing but miscommunication and bad timing the whole story. Nobody says what they mean when they should say it, and it's frustrating as hell. I wanted to smack Erika...she should have just to

Holy crap! That's what I actually said out loud more than once while reading this book. I don't know any other way to describe the intense emotions that I was feeling just from reading this story. There were so many unexpected twists and turns (and a couple expected ones) that I just couldn't put it down. I got so caught up in the story that time seemed to stop. I read it all in one sitting and never even left the recliner.

My heart just broke for both the characters. You could sense their attrac

One of the hallmarks of a good book is how lost in the story you get while reading it, how much you tune out the outside world. By those standards, “Indelible You” is a very good book.

Within the first paragraph, “Indelible You” lets you know that it is not going to be for the faint of heart. The language is strong and the mental images created by the author are even stronger. All throughout this book, it was as if I was there, watching and listening.

This is a book that you won’t want to put down

I received an ARC for an honest review. This was my first introduction to Verlene Landon. I have to say I was really impressed. Such an amazing his & her story telling. I loved the back and forth between the characters.

You are gently but steadily swept up in the knowledge that Walker Loves Erica and vice versa, but they don't realize the other feels the same! Then the sadness and despair. And finally, up, up, up! Talk about a roller coaster ride of emotions for the reader. There is so much

DNF @ 41% Too many POVs and Walkers reaction to her "secret" and then his self destruction is over the top and eye rolling. Adding insult to injury, there is literally character dialogue about every other page. Merely sprinkled in among inner monologues. No thx , just no. 1.5 stars.

2.25 stars. It was cute but idk how you can go almost 75% of the entire book with the main characters not even talking to each other. If this was more dynamic in the plot it could have been great.

Words fail me as I try to explain how much I love this book. Such deep love; such excruciating insecurities, such amazing friendships. Wow. This is the first book I've read by this author, and I'm hooked like never before. If I were to outline the plot it would be a simple one of two people deeply in love with each other but facing many obstacles on the path to their HEA. But that hardly does the book justice, as this book is so much more than just the events portrayed in its pages. The author h ...more

Less then 24 hours later I have just finished reading the first of 4 books in the Imagine Ink series. It doesn't happen often but when it does its because the book has reached a place in my soul that I can't put it down till I know the outcome. The love between Walker and Erika is magnanimous!

The writing of the book was somewhat different for me because it wasn't just the point of view of one or two people but of most of the important people involved. I loved this because what takes place can o

Erika & Walker's relationship is sure an emotional roller coaster. the tone & dialogue is very funny & sarcastic at certain intervals. With all the 'bleepin' fun. Heartbreaking what happened to Melanie, in the end, an unexpected turn of events, a little miracle did come out of it. It was that baby girl to bring Erika & Walker back together. Oh that, Climax scene, my jaw dropped. Those who read this book & get to that climax scene, your jaw will drop. The only critique for me ...more

This is hard because as much as I enjoyed this author's writing style I really became frustrated and annoyed when these two let stupid stuff keep them apart. If not for the friends and relatives they would not have made it and I wanted them to make it from the start. I love the characters in this book the friends are off the hook and Andy a big sweetie but the two main ones Erica and Walker man they had so much that had gone on in their past impact their present and future I just wanted to choke ...more

One night changes everything. For both Walker and Erica. Not only does she let a major secret spill, but it breaks one of Walker's own personal rules, and sends him on a downward spiral. Their friends err Family, can see how much pain it causes them and tries to get them back to where they belong but both are way too stubborn to see it's where they need to be. Get introduced to the Reid clan, as they meddle, and pry, and offer sage words of advice, and lots of love. I loved this book, can't real ...more

I started this book and didn't put it down until I finished it. I loved the interplay and relationship between Erika and Walker. I have to say they sure made a lot of mistakes and just didn’t learn to just breath and talk to each other until it was almost to late. The relationship between Erika, Andy and Marco is amazing and truly what love really is. I loved this book and can not wait to start Brand Me tomorrow.

Walker... swoon...

This is the first book in the Imagine Ink series by Verlene Landon. Verlene is a new author to me. The cover of Indelible you is a beaut.

Walker and Erika. She is his sisters best friend. Erika life hasn't been easy to say the least. How can the best night of her life turn into worse? Walker is sexy in every sense of the word. He's also flawed, like most amazing characters. You can't help but fall completely in love with him.

This book was an absolute page turner. I devoured it

I enjoyed this book. I was quite shocked at the beginning. I felt sucker punched. I found Walker lovable even when he didn’t believe it. I didn’t know if I like Erika in the beginning. She didn’t stand up for her self. She seemed to give up. I was then sucker punched again, but it I was glad that it seemed to put everyone on the same page for their HEA. I did like these characters even as they were broken. They formed there own family. One based on love and not blood.

Take about missed opportunities and miscommunication! Good grief, it drove me nuts-but in a good way. Erika may have been a bit older, but the two of them acted a bit immature. Thank goodness for Andy.

Overall I liked the story and will probably read more of the series. My only real problem is it dragged out too long.

I loved this book! It was a roller coaster of a ride I didn't want to get off of. I felt every range of emotion! If you are looking for a epic love story you need to meet Walker and Erika. **Tissues recommended** . I can't wait to read book two.

A few months ago, I was chosen to beta read this book and absolutely fell in love with it. So much so, in fact, that I had a hard time believing this book was the first one that Ms. Landon has written.

Walker has had a rough past. An ex-con, he spends his days working in a tattoo parlor and his nights dreaming about his sister's best friend Erika. He believes that he will never be good enough for her, so he resigns himself to loving her from afar. But all that's about to change... things get car
