kINKED is the second volume of the Pen and Ink Anthology Series. The anthology is made up of eight stories all with the same thread or theme which is- Ink (Tattoo’s) and Kink… the stories are contributed by eight very talented authors. Some of the authors I know and have read, but most of the authors are new to me- which is always an exciting thing for me to be able to discover some new sources of reading material.
I really am surprised by how brilliant this whole anthology is. The storie

Wow what a fabulous collection of stories you will find in kINKED! All of the authors in this anthology were new to me so I was looking forward to reading the short stories that it contained and what a gem of stories they were! As with all anthologies I enjoyed some more than others but they were all an enjoyable read. They stories were hot and steamy! They were all different but with one common theme that begin ink!

Anthologies can be tricky - some stories will be amazing, but they can be overshadowed by ones that.. well, aren't as good. But that's not the case with kINKED. Every story in this book was incredibly well written, even beautifully so. As hot as these stories were, I was also pleased by how lyrical the writing could be. Short stories can be hit or miss with me, mostly because I find it difficult to truly get into an author's world when there isn't much time to describe it - but the authors in th ...more

It felt like something familiar and comforting, but how could that be she's never met him before. Does Callum feel the connection, too? Are they connected to their past or is Meli

Kinked is a collection of 8 short romance and kinky stories with tattoos at the heart of them.
I found these to be quite creative stories and not your usual hot and steamy romances. If you are going to write short sexy stories, the plots need to be strong and interesting and these do not disappoint.

In Begin Again by Tiffany Michelle Brown we meet Melissa on a night out with the girls. She decides, after a little help from her friends that its time for her to get a tattoo so the girls take her for

These stories include f/f, m/f, voyeurism, and many other ideas. They all have one thing in common though, ink. Tattoos, sexy men and women with tattoos. Some are the artists cr

I enjoyed this anthology, there were some of the stories that weren't to my taste but your always going to get that in a collection like this. Equally there are some that I wish were full books in there own right!
There's a few of the authors that after reading this I want to look up for more of their work, id happily read more anthologies like this.
The only reason I've given it 4 not 5 stars is because, as I said, a few stories were not to my taste.

What an awesome collection!! Multiple authors teasing us with hot, steamy and yes, very kinky sex. The other common thread is ink. Tattoos. On the guy, on the girl, on both, on everyone! As a fetishist myself, and a tatted woman, I thoroughly enjoyed these vignettes. Most would make awesome series and I plan to check out all of the authors as well!!

This collection of novellas all based on tattoos is highly intriguing and the discovery of new to me authors was awesome. Each of these novellas are highly addictive and definitely make you hot under the collar. Each of these novellas took the steam to a new level and needed to search out my hubby for my own sexy games.

This anthology is definitely five stars.
Kinked by Cori Vidae is an enticing, erotic anthology.
In the first story, Begin Again by Tiffany Michelle Brown, the main character Melissa is railroaded into getting a tattoo by her friends. She has absolutely no idea what she is about to experience. The attraction and need that Melissa and Cullum share will rock your world! This story is bold, seductive, mysterious, and I enjoyed it very much.

Pretty standard collection of kink stories. Most of them consist of the usual hetero, female sub/male Dom setup with the sub almost always being the narrator.
Best story: "Through Glass a Stranger" by Renee Dominick. Breaks the mould by focusing on a voyeur/exhibitionist pairing where both people involved have self-knowledge of their desires and control over the situation. Beautiful writing that avoids purple prose.
Worst story: "Sae-ri" by Nicole Blackwood. Who needs informed consent when you hav

The first book is called Begin Again, written by Michelle Brown. The story revolves around Melissa and Callum. A spur of the moment decision leads them to each other, with both sensing a connection that is irresistible, even though they have never met. The addictive passion they both feel increases throughout and neither of them can deny that inevitable draw to each other.

In this book it is an Anthology of several short stories. I am not a fan of short stories as I prefer reading novels but as far as short stories goes this one isn’t too bad.

Begin Again is about Callum and Melissa who know each other but take a little bit of time to figure it out. When Melissa goes to Bottled Ink for a tattoo, Callum can’t take his eyes of her and tells her that he knows her from somewhere. Melissa says the same thing and keeps going back for more tattoos until she finally understands how they know each other.
