Proper Ink (Jaded Lily Book 2) by Zeia Jameson
4 out of 5 Stars
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.
Luca is a character we see from the first book, Proper Irish, and I was so excited to see his story. Luca is a typical artist, a tattoo artist. He is all about his art, the purity of his art and the way Jameson describes the art to the reader brings them to life. I can practically see the art and imagine the fine lines and details. He is also a broken man. He is recovering from having his heart smashed and he hides behind a sordid expression.
Kerry is a beautiful soul. From the outside, she seems to have lived a charmed life and anyone of us would be jealous of, but she has a huge chip on her shoulder from her gilded life.
These two clash in an explosion of passion, attitude, and emotions. This book is a perfect extension to Proper Irish and is a beautiful insight into the lives of Luca and Kerry. I loved getting to know them and watching their relationship built and crest.
Jameson is a fantastic author. She builds and weaves a story and bridges both character and reader. She creates a masterpiece that draws you in a keeps you. You don’t even realize you are holding your breath. Highly Recommended!
