My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Proper Ink (Jaded Lily Book 2) by Zeia Jameson was a pretty enjoyable read that had me hooked, and flipping the pages.

Not my first read from this author or in this series, so I new going in that it was going be something fun and entertaining. I wasn’t let down, and I very much enjoyed this book.

I liked the MC’s, both had strong qualities and personalities, that you know, got in the way of them progressing. But in truth that made this romance all the more realistic. I actually related hard to Luca, I tend to fight my feelings hard as well. I understood him, got why he was standoffish, and why it took him a bit to gather himself to make a move. Yes, it’s frustrating, but like I said, it made the story all the more real, as it reflects how real people deal with emotions and hurt. Kerry, I found was that good match, and fit well with him. I got more frustrated in the way she handled work, I get it, sometimes you can’t take a stand, but then again, I felt like she could have use her voice more.

Overall this book was well written, detailed, and it had a sweet, feels invoking romance that was anything but normal. This book is worth your time and energy, and it gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Proper Ink is the second book in the Jaded Lily series by Zeia Jameson. This can be a stand alone story but reading the first book will enhance the story that much more. Zeia Jameson has a flowing descriptive story telling ability. This keeps the story interesting, and would keep the pages to turn to the next part of the story. Lucas is a tattoo artist that has been unlucky with the ladies. He was not looking for any lady or relationship for that matter. Lucas met Kerry while she was looking for a tattoo. There was something about her that peaked his interest. He wanted to stay away from her, but the universe had another idea. Kerry was a strong lady who for Lucas interesting because he was pushing back. Will Lucas allow Kerry to be in his life? Or will Lucas keep his focus on his art?

Having read book one, I had high hopes for the second installment in the Jaded Lily series. And I was not disappointed. At all!!! I loved this book from start to finish and LOVED that it was told from Luca’s POV. Strong characters with a wonderful story. Absolutely a fantastic book. You do not have to read book one in order to appreciate Proper Ink. However you will appreciate the character and plot development much deeper if you do. Highly recommended!

Proper Ink by Zeia Jameson was a quick romance. I would give this read a 5 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed the pace of this book and the backstory was filled in beautifully. Luca was a fantastic read and I was impressed with the detail from a male pov. I loved the emotions and character building. Kerry was nice to read about as well. I would love to read something from her pov versus two people now describing her. This is the second book in the Jaded Lily series, I would not recommend it without reading the first book but you could.

5 Stars

It has been awhile since I read the 1st in this series, which I loved by the way and it says a lot about an author in my opinion when I pick another book up down the road after reading a trillion in between and the whole first comes back to me immediately..The characters from the first book weave through this one and we met the mains of this one in the first book. I’m not normally a fan of books running alongside each other in some parts but in this one it definitely worked.

What can I say about Luca? I fell head over heels for him and my heart completely shattered for him, I loved getting to know him as he fascinated me in the first book. I love his friendship with Padraig and his connection with Kerry was off the charts hot and completely awesome. This is probably the 2nd or 3rd book I’ve read where the whole story is told from the lead male’s perspective and I loved it!!

This author transported me into this story and I could see everything described, Luca was an artist and I swear I could see and feel all that he did. It was awesome!

You could probably read this as a standalone but I am so glad I didn’t and I can not wait for the next story in this series.

Amazingly Awesome!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Proper Ink is the 2nd book in the awesome Jaded Lily series by Zeia Jameson. Most of the storyline runs concurrently with the first book in the series, Proper Irish. I had devoured the first book in one sitting and this one was a repeat performance. We had met both of the main characters in Proper Irish and I was really looking forward to reading Luca and Kerry’s story.
Luca Cipriani is a wonderful character. Having been seriously heartbroken in the past, he doesn’t let anyone in to his little bubble. His life revolves around the tattoo shop that he owns, Jaded Lily. I loved that we are given so much of Luca’s history, from his heartbreak and to how he came to be friends with Padraig (hero of Proper Irish) and then become a tattoo artist.
Kerry Frazier is a sweetheart. Best friend and working partner of Stella from the first book. She’s intrigued by Luca and wants to help him move on. I loved that this book is told from Luca’s point of view as it really allows the reader to understand the pain and struggle he has gone through.
This series has grabbed me so far and I can’t wait to read more of it. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 stars

The story Proper Ink (Jaded Lily Book 2) by Zeia Jameson is a romance book that I loved reading. It pulled me in from the very beginning and I found myself lost in the story. I loved reading about Luca and Kerry. Luca is a man who knows tattoos. He has been building his reputation in his business. He doesn’t date. Then he meets Kerry. Kerry is an event planner and good at it. Although it may be hectic at times, she finds her job exhilarating and rewarding. Then she meets Luca. They agree not to label themselves; they are just hanging out. What happens when emotions begin to grow between them? What does the future hold for them? Will they take a chance on each other? Read this book to find out. This story has romantic scenes that make the temperature in the room rise. There are moments that are sad and others that are heartwarming. I grew to care about Luca and Kerry with each chapter that I read. I couldn’t help but want them to be happy. I enjoyed reading about the additional characters that are in the story. Some of them are familiar as they have been brought forward from the first book. Don’t miss out on a wonderfully written book that has unforgettable characters. I would highly recommend reading this story.

Luca Cipriani knows art.

Specifically, tattoos.

Patience, focus, and attention to detail are crucial.

He’s consumed with it all.

For the past three years, Luca has been building his reputation as the master of ink in Savannah, Georgia.

It wasn’t his original plan, but sometimes, lives twist and plans change.

Kerry Frazier knows entertainment.

Specifically, event planning.

Locations, guest lists, and the hottest trends keep clients begging for more.

She’s living the dream.

Even though Kerry’s job is exhilarating and rewarding, it’s also never ending.

So a night on the town for herself is just what she needs.

Luca never expected someone like Kerry to waltz into his shop. And blatantly flirt with him, no less.

He never imagined flirting would lead to more.

One secret night.

That was all it was supposed to be.

Until one night turned into two. Three.

Luca doesn’t do feelings.

Kerry can’t do complicated.

What happens when you’re drawn to someone who is bound to break your heart?

Proper Ink (Jaded Lily #2)Proper Ink by Zeia Jameson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Proper Ink is the second book in the Jaded Lily series by Zeia Jameson and I recommend that you read the first book Proper Irish as you are missing a lot of background information/story and there will be a disconnect with the characters. I absolutely love this series and even though there are times of sadness it had me laughing out loud.

Luca is going through the motions of living life, but he is stuck and not sure how to move on. Kerry loves life and works herself to the bone and has just what the doctor has ordered, but she will need to pull out all the stops, to fight for a chance at happiness.

Both books are a must read. Zeia works magic when writing romances and makes you feel part of the story and connected to these wonderful characters.
