Review: Tattooed Emotions by Alicia Rae

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]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?

Review: I was provided a copy of Tattooed Emotions in exchange for an honest review and honestly, it is hot and sexy—I love it! This story begins with Raeyln and Iris getting ready for the doctor’s big news that could either make her free or completely break her. After her nerves get the best of her, the doctor tells her that she is free of cancer. Her tumor is gone after her several chemotherapy sessions, but the doctor warned her that even though she in remission now…her tumor can come back. Raeyln decides at that time that she is going to live her life to the fullest. Six months later, her words are long gone and she has her own company and becomes a workaholic because it is safe and predictable. Little does she know that Damien Heathman has other plans for her. When they meet over a huge altercation which technically could ruin her career, they can’t help feeling that electricity that sparks to life. Could he be the one that helps her live her life to the fullest or will Damien be another man who walks away when hard times come knocking?

I really enjoy this story and my favorite character is Damien. Of course! Why wouldn’t it be? He is described as a gorgeous, tattooed hunk of a man that likes to be in control of everything around him. Now, controlling can sometimes be a good thing unless taken too far. Damien of course, steps in and takes what he wants when Raelyn really just doesn’t know what she can take, but she does know that she wants him. Iris is another favorite of mine. Her stamina and optimism is wonderful for Raelyn’s attitude toward herself and her future. With Raelyn being all alone with no family, she considers Iris as a sister and that is incredible.

I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance or women’s fiction. I would rate Tattooed Emotions with five stars because of the depth that story holds. The content is original and creative, while the author does a superb job with character development. I thoroughly enjoy reading about Damien and Raelyn. Though struggles may seem very hard and impossible to overpass, it is easier when you have someone to help you and I think that this is what the moral of the story was for me. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.
