Beautiful Ink (Forever Inked #1)
Author: Nicole Reed
Release: April 27, 2014

Release Day

This novel is not a cliffhanger and can be read as a stand-alone.

WARNING:  This book is real, beautifully raw, and not for the faint of heart. It is the story of a young girl’s loss of innocence while growing up around a motorcycle club. It is not suitable for children under the age of seventeen due to language, sexual content, and intense subject matter. Based on true events.


I have tattooed that single word on more skin than I care to count. It elicits powerful thoughts and emotions for most people.

        Loving.                 Caring.
                Supportive.             Togetherness.

But not for me. The word family means so much more.

        Vicious.                Harmful.
                Dangerous.              Corrupt.

You can’t run forever from the ones who
love you.

I love Nicole Reed. This is NO secret. I have yet to be disappointed by her work. I have read the Ruined series more than once. They left me emotionally wrecked in the best way possible. She has a way of writing that is so real and so raw that you feel as if you are a part of the story. Your chest aches as if it were experiencing what the characters are experiencing. When I was offered the chance to review this story, I said “YES!” without hesitation. I dropped another book to read this one. I was not disappointed.

This is by far the best yet from Nicole Reed. I couldn’t stop reading once I started! There were so many parts I read that I was thinking, “no, no, no. Please don’t let them do that…” only to read down a line and see that Keller was saying the same thing. Again, Ms Reed was able to draw me in instantly, captivate my attention, and make me feel a part of this story. Right away I was nervous about Vin and loved Holden. I found that I really grew to care about Vin, but remained cautious. And Holden. I think that my heart broke for him as much as it broke for Keller.

There was so much I hated about some of those characters. I hated how they were so controlling. I hated the mind games they played. Don’t get me started on Sage & Ward. I hated their manipulation of both Keller & Holden. I hated them because it was so real. Gangs of any sort are no joke and the way they handled it was just so real. But I had a soft spot for Badger and Diamond.

To say this book left me with a hangover is a gross understatement. This book is going to stay with me for a very long time. Keller, Vin, & Holden have left such an impact on me that it’s going to take a lot to measure up to this one.
