Review: Forever Tattooed by Alicia Rae
Forever Tattooed by Alicia Rae
Tattooed Billionaire Series Book 3
Genre: Contemporary, Suspense, Romance
ABOUT THE BOOK: Raelyn Jennings survived the unthinkable. She has been given a second chance at life and a happily ever after with the man who owns her heart and soul. But surviving a brain tumor comes with a price—change—and it becomes Raelyn’s worst fear.
Damien Heathman—the tattooed, sexy, dominant CEO—isn’t one to let challenges stand in his way. Ever. Especially when it comes to his forever with Raelyn. His undying love for her is strong enough to see them through any darkness in their path, and he’ll obliterate anyone and anything that tries to stand in his way. But, as Raelyn struggles to find her new place in life, the truth behind Damien’s jagged scars begins to unravel, layer after layer, and they reveal a deep hatred and rage toward those from his past. Tears will be shed. Relationships will be broken.
Can Damien and Raelyn’s love bear the inevitable storm? Or will heartbreak and devastation shatter their dreams of forever?
Whether we carried them on our naked flesh or in the depths of our hearts, I believed we all had scars in one way or another. Some were deep, jagged, and tender to the touch while others faded until they were faint and forgotten. It was a choice—whether one let a wound hold them back or one made themselves stronger. It was our faith and those we loved that empowered us to persevere, for acceptance and love were meant to last…forever.
REVIEW: For some, love does not exist. For some, love is the unattainable dream. For others, there is always someone out there who makes their life brighter. Love has several different meanings, but Rae does a really great job of summing up the many different emotions that come with that feeling of love. From doubt to desperation, sadness to overjoyed and hatred to hunger. This third installment is a trying novel, one that will challenge everything that readers have endured throughout the story. Be prepared because the road to forever for Damien and Raelyn is not all silver roses and white Lilies or you know, rainbows and butterflies.
After Raelyn’s battle with the second appearance of her Glioma tumor, Damien has given her a new strength—a new reason to want to live. She has already admitted that falling head over hills for this mysteriously dark and handsome man was not in the game plan at all, but what she doesn’t understand is why he won’t open up to her. She has shared everything with him, secrets about her past…her fight to survive the first go around with cancer and her fears. Before she can move forward and have any happily ever after with Damien, she knows that she must unravel the secrets that he hides—especially when his worthless mother and step-brother come back to throw everything in his face or worse—threaten to go public. With Raelyn still recovering from her surgery and the stress from her new business partnership, regaining a lost friendship and Damien withholding himself from her, will Raelyn snap and walk out of his life forever…or will he be her forever?
Rae has an invigorating story that is creative and well written. The pace is nice and quick, which makes reading this installment very easy. The author does a wonderful job with character development and credibility. This installment is a bit steamier than the last two which was a bit redundant. It is strongly recommended that both the first and second installment be read before diving into this one, due to the content and constant back-story references of the characters and previous scenes that unfolded beforehand. If you are a reader of romance and women’s fiction, this may be perfect for you.
