“MOVING ON” IS JUST ABOUT ACTING THE PART.
I would never say as much to the people I love, but it’s the truth.
They want to see me doing better.
They want to see me living for more than just my son.
So I let them.
Every day is about putting on a face,
pretending to get over the loss of my husband.
And every day is a lie.
UNTIL MOVING ON IS A TEMPTATION THAT CAN’T BE DENIED.
I’m not about to claim I’m a genius,
unless we’re talking with a tattoo gun or woman in my hands,
but I’m smart enough to know the beauty serving up my cupcake fix is off limits.
Really, I know.
Too bad the lure of putting a real smile on Kate’s face is so strong.
When she visits Sailor’s Grave Tattoo Parlor,
I can’t help but want to leave my mark.

"He'd left a mark that went way beyond the skin."
Marked is a Savage Disciples MC crossover story. I'm a big fan of that series and was very excited to revisit some of my favorite characters. Sailor's Grave Tattoo Parlor is run by a club member so the two worlds intersect beautifully. However; this particular story is not about him. Nope, it features a very talented and sexy tattoo artist who works for him. I noticed the author doesn't mention his name in the synopsis so I'm reluctant to do so either.
What I can tell you is that having a box of tissues nearby while reading this story is a good idea, especially if your Kindle is not encased in a waterproof cover. Your emotions are liable to get the best of you at some point during the reading of this emotional journey through first love and loss. And then, they might come in handy for other things later. You know, like when either you or your reading device breaks out into a sweat from the #HEAT. 🔥
One of my favorite quotes. "It's like you were the only one in my life who could have helped me through the trauma of losing you. How fucked up is that?"
Since I'm trying to be careful not to share anything that the author would prefer to keep as a surprise for her readers, I'll just leave you with a few thoughts to peak your curiosity that you might remember later with a smile.
➤ Sometimes there's not much distance between an 'oh' and a 'O' .
➤ There's no such thing as too much paint. Some masterpieces just take longer to dry.
➤ He has a #SweetTooth and he craves more than her #Cupcakes.
➤ When it's #Perfect you'll know it.
Was that as clear as mud? But admit it, you're intrigued, right? I encourage you to give into it and one-click this amazing story that will fill your heart and leave you smiling as you wait for the next installment in the Sailor's Grave series. The line forms here...
