OMGOSH! This turned out to be a great read.

So I had a hard time in the beginning & leading up towards the middle, with our heroine. I understood her misgivings/fears, I did. I just felt like certain occurrences should have jolted her out of her way of thinking a lot sooner. Then what she did or how she handled the big eff up 75% in the novel, I was soooo ticked at her. I mean I totally saw myself leaping into my kindle, into her living room and shaking the ever loving crap out of her & l

Sleepless Beauty

Callie had been burned before so now she lived in her fantasies of a supermodel. I mean there is no way a fantasy of a supermodel could really happen right?
Vehn the hot supermodel was a nice guy but prone to using women for what he wanted.
This story had me captivated from the beginning. I loved every twist, turn and nuance.
I also have a thing for tattooed guys but that is for another time.

Exotic Ink Series

Vehn is a strong start to a new series. It's a good story with a sweet reminder to look below the surface. Not sure the extra subtitle of "Erotica for Women with Explicit Sex" is necessary, but I guess it's a warning if you are easily offended.

Five fantastic stars *

I was so thrilled and so excited to read and enjoy this first series, Exotic Ink, written by the debut author, LS Anders. Such an exclusive most amazing romantic series...

Whilst Callie Mackenzie was laying down after her work as a Exotic Ink tattoo artist, she gazed through pictures of gorgeous, sexy men her ultimate dream was still Vehn Mathiieu. She seemed relaxed, although she was anticipating when to stoke after having her close workmate Rayna Nic

Model perfect

Vehn is a world famous model with a best friend working at Exotic ink . He meets his one but she is damaged and finds it hard to trust. But the two battles life and trust to become one.
Ria Lize

Predictable, and perhaps a little rocky towards the end, but fell-in-love-with-Vehn kind of read.

I really enjoyed the build-up and the set up for the book, although I was left disappointed towards the drama near the end. It's taken so much care in building up the relationships, the world, and the characters, that I felt cheated on with the bubbling up of the (view spoiler).

Vehn is the first book in the Exotic Ink Series by LS Anders. It is also the first book I have read from this author. This book was a great read! It is based around a tattoo parlour in New York.

Callie is a tattoo artist, and a very good one at that. On the outside she seems sassy and confident but on the inside she is completely the opposite. Thanks to her ex she has anxiety, feels worthless and is a little broken. All she wants is to f

Saw this recommended by one of my friends and really enjoyed it. Loved the H in this story and laughed my butt off with some of the h's lines..

“This is the only man I wouldn't mind licking the sweat off his balls"
“I know what you mean. I've gotten so good at getting myself off, that I just scream my own damn name,” Callie admitted. “I'm the best I've ever had.”
“Yeah, I always, at the very least, like to cop a feel. I have to see what the guy's packin' before I commit, since my vagina is allergic

Really loved Vehn, he was so sincere, gorgeous inside and out. Callie was a struggle for me. I liked her, felt for her, but she just came with too much self doubt. Way too much inner dialogue about her insecurities. This was a very sexy read but not sure I want to continue with this boxed set.

Absolutely love this book. Callie and Vehn are definitely meant for eachother. They each have their own past to overcome and they do. A definite five star read. Can't wait for more
Jenny  (Jenz Book Jewels)

Firstly I'd like to start by saying this is a debut author. I had the honour of being one of the first to read this book, so thank you LS you rock!
I absolutely loved the book and the characters in Vehn, they all have a really close bond to each other and always have each others backs. There are a few characters that won't win over any hearts though.

Callie Mackenzie is a tattoo artist at Exotic Ink, she's sassy, funny, feisty and swear like a sailor. But that's just Callie on
I was so excited to get my hands on Vehn, the debut novel of LS Anders. I really had no clue what to expect. The teasers were sizzling with lust and although there is a lot of that too in the book, there is also so much more.

Vehn Mathieu is a supermodel, a male in the cover of every magazine. His looks have made his fortune, but now he has decided to retire from modeling and pursue his true dream, to become a photographer.

Callie is a tattoo artist, well-known in New York circle and she works in
Good premise, really needs editing. As in, people are intimidated, not "intimated". Eyes flare, they don't "flair". And, there is no such word as "pertinacious". I had to look this last one up since I got so distracted by it. Some don't care about proper spelling/grammar/word use but I find it very distracting when a book is poorly edited, which means I'm not in the story with the characters.

Normally, I'd only dock one star for editing issues but this story was a gotta-put-it-down. Why? I empat

But not my last novel by LS Anders! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed Callie, a very funny woman with insecurities but also strength. She was a character that I would definitely enjoy hanging out with because her humor mirrors mine :) #OhMyVehn Lord, I simply adore a man who has that little bit of Alpha with a whole lot of heart. I just wanted to hug him and then beg him to take me away. The dialogue was awesome, the story flowed really well, and I lived the secondary characters

I loved this book so much. Callie has great friendships with the people she works with at the tat shop. Vehn has a close relationship with mum & a bromance going on with Tegan.
Callie has been put down by her ex leaving her not having much faith in men. She has a crazy crush on Vehn the super sexy model but what are the chances of meeting him in real life?

Writing is a passion I finally gave in to. I popped my cherry with the Exotic Ink series which began as contemporary and morphed into my paranormal spin-off series, Mythical Ink, all of which alpha males and hard-headed bad boys are brought to heel by the women that capture their hearts.
