Haunted by the past…

I loved the first book in this series and couldn’t wait to start Luca and Kerry’s story! Proper Irish was a wonderful mix of humour, quirky and sizzle that raised the bar really, really high…

“I didn’t mean any harm. Not to you, anyway. Laura’s pot, however? It had it coming… Smug bastard.”

Told from Luca’s point of view, the timeline bounced from the past to the present, setting the stage while explaining it at the same time. Luca wasn’t looking for love and didn’t know wh

This is the first title I have read by Zeia Jameson. It is the second book in a series. However, it runs concurrently with Proper Irish (the other title) so you can read them independent of each other. I really enjoyed this book. It was refreshing reading a book from the male’s POV. It was done really well. I really liked all of the characters in this book. It was a quick, fun, easy read. I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

Proper Ink by Zeia Jameson a fantastic four-star read. This is the second book in the Jaded Lily series, it can be read as stand-alone but I would recommended reading the both books as they are both worth reading, all I can say is I’m glad that we get Luca Cipriani’s story as I really like him as a character. There was just something about him that made him compelling reading for me, I liked Kerry as well as a character as she had a depth to her but Luca oh my Luca what am I going to do without ...more

This is the first book I have read from this author and wow she blew me away. I absolutely loved this book. This is the second book in the Jaded Lily series. I didn’t read the first book so it can be read as a stand alone but after reading this story I want to read the first book now. This story drew me in right from the beginning. It only took me a few hours to devour this amazing love story.

Luca Cipriani loves art so much he now does it for a living. He is a very known tattoo artist in his ho

Zeia Jameson is brand spanking new to me y'all and I feel like I have been kept from something pretty freaking special. Sexy. Sweet. Intense. Addicting. Captivating. All of the feels in only the best ways... Jameson delivered one hell of a journey that got me all in my feelings right from the very start and left me with one wicked - "I'd do it all over again for these two, especially him" - book hangover.

He's broken and trying to heal but so worth it. She's strong and beautiful but not l

The story Proper Ink (Jaded Lily Book 2) by Zeia Jameson is a romance book that I loved reading. It pulled me in from the very beginning and I found myself lost in the story. I loved reading about Luca and Kerry. Luca is a man who knows tattoos. He has been building his reputation in his business. He doesn’t date. Then he meets Kerry. Kerry is an event planner and good at it. Although it may be hectic at times, she finds her job exhil

3.5 stars I recieved this as an ARC and because I’m all for damaged bad-boys who are tattoo artists, I was all in. Some of my fav authors write these characters, but I had a hard time connecting with the characters in this story. Maybe it’s because it’s written first person from the hero’s POV, which is interesting but not the norm for the genre. It didn’t always feel true to the inner workings of a male mind. Still, the dialogue is perky and fun and it has a smooth style to the internal dialogu ...more

Proper Ink is the second book in the Jaded Lily series by Zeia Jameson. I would recommend that you read Proper Irish before reading this book as some events overlap. This book also fills in some of the little blanks that were in the first book. Luca Cipriani and Kerry Frazier click from the beginning with their sarcastic comments and instant chemistry. Due to how Luca’s last relationship ended, he has some issues with relationships – totally understandable poor guy was blindsided, but being with ...more

I thought I was going to read a book about a bad boy inker...and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that the hero was sweet and soulful. Luca has the soul of a real artist and after a bad breakup, he ends up becoming a tattoo artist, almost by accident, after meeting Padraig. It was so nice revisiting Savannah and getting to see Luca and Keri's story, which was hinted at in Proper Irish. It would have been nice to get some of Keri's perspective, I wanted to see her fall for Luca as he wa ...more

I was excited to read luca’s book because he intrigued me so much in Proper Irish. I thought he and Kerry had great chemistry, and they do, but sadly this book fell flat for me. It seems way focused on Luca’s past issues than it does overcoming them with Kerry. I didn’t really feel any growth. It’s a decent plot line, but I just couldn’t connect with the characters. I felt like the first book was being retold from Luca’s POV.

Tattoo, Event Planner, Broken Bad Boy.

Proper Ink is the second book in the Jaded Lily Series from Zeia Jameson. I struggled with book one, mostly because I couldn’t connect at all with the MC’s so I was truly looking forward to getting more with a new focus being the center of the novel. I am so stinking happy that I decided to stick to it and read this book. I personally adored Luca. He has to be on my top ten list of book-boyfriends that I have read this year. I am absolutely in love with this book. I will say that it struggled a ...more

I didn't like this book as much as the first one. I don't feel like Luca was completely over Mallory and if I was Kerry I would have fought a little harder. Even with Luca being a little shy. However, this book was awesome. And perfectly complimented the first book. Padraig is shown in a totally different light. This book as gives more back story for everyone. I think it was a great filler book.

Proper Ink is book two in the Jaded Lily series but is the first book that I’ve read by this author.

It tells the story of Luca and Kerry. Luca is the owner of Jaded Lily, a prominent tattoo shop in Savannah, Georgia. He meets Kerry by chance one night when she stumbles into his shop with his business partner’s girlfriend.

Luca’s heart has been broken once before and he does not want to go down that path again. He can’t make himself vulnerable no matter how much Kerry tempts him.

Finally, the penny dropped and I realise that there is a genuine knack to writing blurb because when I first read the synopsis on this I may have been intrigued but darn it once I got into the story, I was sure that I must have missed something because when it came to Luca Cipriani the man beneath the surface was a lot more interesting than I could have ever imagined.
Being told from Luca’s point of view meant that we had a bird’s eye view of what things were really like for this creativ

Proper Ink is the second book in the Jaded Lily series. This book has a slightly different feel than the first book, but it is just as good. You can read this book as a standalone, but it does make reference to the main characters from the first book. To get a well-rounded picture of the story, and better understand why Kerry is so upset at certain moments, it helps to read the first book.

Luca is an accomplished tattoo artist. He didn’t have plans to be one, in fact, he had very different plans,

Proper Ink is the second book in the Jaded Lily series by Zeia Jameson. It is the story of Jaded Lily owner and tattoo artist Luca.

Zeia Jameson can write. Proper Irish was my first foray with this author. It was good. Padraig and Stella were not the easiest characters for me to get into. Okay, it was really just Padraig. So, I was a little apprehensive about Proper Ink. But I was pleasantly surprised and happy that I so thoroughly enjoy the second book in this series. Proper Ink delivers a unique, fun, good read that had me enthralled until the end.

There are few characters who snag my heart quite like Luca. What a heart throb he his. While this book can be read as a standalone, I am a big supporter of reading a series in book order, in the way the author wrote the stories for you to get the most out of the books/series.

What no one knows, is that his heart was broken in college, so he refuses to let anyone close to him again, except his Irish friend who wasn't really his choice.
