Tattooed Emotions Synopsis:

Raelyn Jennings has survived the unthinkable. She’s been given a second chance to live, to breathe, to feel. Her ability to overcome such a traumatic hurdle has created armor around her heart. But beyond her shield is fear, a consuming deep one, of the unknown. Raelyn vows to herself that she’ll solely focus on the one constant in her life, her career as the CEO for a prestigious accounting firm. 

Damien Heathman’s unrelenting determination has made him a powerful, respected man. He’s sexy and confident and utterly breathtaking. His dominance and strength is evident in every purposeful stride, every meaningful look, and every soft caress. 

Raelyn has worked with Damien’s company, Heathman Enterprises, for many years, but they’ve never crossed paths—until now. 

Damien’s presence fills a room. He steals Raelyn’s breath and sparks her broken heart back to life. Once Damien sets eyes on Raelyn, there is no turning back. He wants her, and he’ll stop at nothing to have her. Not even the dark secrets hidden behind his tattoos will stand in his way. 

The chemistry is undeniable. The passion is palpable. 

Can Damien convince Raelyn that he is worth the risk? Or will Raelyn allow her past to control her future, feeling the chance of another heartache is too great to bear?


Goodreads   Exclusive Excerpt: Damien lightly laid me on the bed, removed my towel, and tucked me beneath the sheets. “Do you need anything? Water, saltines, anything?” Concern filled his features once again. “No.” I smiled. “I’m fine. Just tired.” He nodded his acknowledgment, and then he walked to the bathroom door while pulling his soaking wet shirt from his back. He tossed it on the chair, every muscle flexing with his movements. I might have been tired, but that didn’t stop me from being stunned into silence as my body flamed to life at the sight of his bare torso. My greedy eyes traveled from one end of his shoulder to the other, drinking in the beauty of his ink. Without glancing at me, he sauntered over to his dresser to pull out a dark-colored shirt. “Don’t,” I whispered, feeling my heart stop beating in my chest. It destroyed me a little every time he concealed this part of himself from me. I knew something awful had happened to Damien and that he didn’t want to talk about it, but him hiding it from me hurt beyond any other physical pain I’d ever experienced. His arms paused midair, and he gazed over his shoulder. From his side profile, I saw the instant his body tensed, and his jaw clenched. “Please…” I swallowed thickly and dug for courage. “You want me to stay. And I want to lie with you…with nothing between us.” I realized I was being unfair, but I was that desperate. A visible tremor shook through him. It felt as though an eternity had passed before he spoke, “Don’t touch them.” My heart swelled within its confined space. He was going to trust me. “I won’t,” I breathed in relief. “I promise.” “Don’t ever break a promise to me, Raelyn.” He slowly lowered his arms and pivoted to face me. “So, don’t make one if you can’t keep it.” “I keep my promises,” I vowed with the utmost sincerity. “As do I. Always.” His voice was reverent.

My Review

My poor heart! Tattooed Emotions took all my feels, mashed them, mended them, broke them again, then started stitching them back up right before the ending had me screaming, "No! It can't end yet?!" This beautiful book and it's range of emotions had me on the edge of my seat the whole time and left me wanting and absolutely needing more.

Raelyn has survived more than her fair share of tragedy in her lifetime. Most recently she's been given a second chance at life after a life-altering diagnosis. Coming to terms with her life and who was left in in, she has guarded her heart and only lets a few select breech her walls. Damien also has secrets and a life of pain he hides behind a successful and dominating facade. When these two meet through a mutual acquaintance, Raelyn's life is altered once again in more ways than one. Damien's presence is a shock to Raelyn's carefully laid plans and he makes it known that he always gets what he wants and he wants Raelyn.

There are so many layers to this story and I feel like, days after finishing, I'm still peeling them back. Both Damien and Raelyn have been hurt and both are holding themselves back. Neither wants to open the flood gates but it seems inevitable. I loved watching these two together. It was beautiful and a little heartbreaking at the same time. Damien was an absolutely swoon-worthy dominate alpha devoted to winning and being worthy of Raelyn. Once Raelyn finally opened up, the sparks flew and so did the heat off my Kindle.

By the end I was smiling and swooning and then smacked with a cliffy that left me wanting more for both Damien and Raelyn as well as some answers to things that were left open. Don't be scared by the cliffy though, because I'm sure Ms. Rae is going to give up the most epic ending ever. At least that's my fervent prayer. These two deserve the best ending.
