Release Day Blitz, My Review & Giveaway for Beautiful Ink By Nicole Reed

Beautiful Ink Banner - Available Now

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. Forever.
But not for me. The word family means so much more.
Vicious. Harmful. Dangerous. Corrupt. Deadly. You can’t run forever from the ones who love you.

3. And this teaser

Other than these 3 things I knew absolutely NOTHING about this book.  Nicole succeeded in Captivating me right from the Prologue. This story is told in both the past and the present tense. Nicole does an amazing job of making sure that you fully understand what is happening and the choices that Helen has to make to stay alive.

Helen (aka Keller)  works at a tattoo parlor called Screaming Ink. She keeps her past hidden and constantly is on edge with the people around her. She trusts no one to know about her past. Ginger is her only friend and even Ginger does not know about Helen’s past.

Helen is born into the life of an MC club, when her mom dies she is left to take care of her baby sister and deal with the women that her father has in his life. Those women include a nasty mean stepmother who hates Helen with a passion.  Helen hides out when she can and does all she can to protect her now 5 year old sister.  Helen vows to one day get away from the life she is in and to have her happily ever after.

When tragedy strikes, Helen is left to be raised by the MC’s club now president and his family, which also includes her best friend Holden. Helen has always looked to Holden as a brother and loves him so much. They spend all of their time together. As Helen gets older she hears and see’s things that she is not suppose to be noticing within the club.

She starts hanging out at the tattoo shop owned by the club and run by members. Diamond one of the member’s Old ladies takes a liking to Helen and teaches her all there is to know about tattooing and before too long Helen is tattoo and she is one of the best one’s around.

Holden son of the President of the club, he works in the clubs garage and when he turns 18 he plans on becoming a Prospect within the club and one day being the President. After all that is the life he knows has been planned out for him and with Helen by his side as his Old Lady. Only problem is, Helen does not love him the way he loves her.

One night after another near tragedy Helen is forced into becoming Holden’s woman within the club.
Things get out of control and when another tragedy strikes Helen this breaks her and she vows to get out of the life she has been dealt with.
Holden won’t leave with Helen, he knows he has to stay and live this life. He helps Helen to get away. With Rules included.
1.       She can’t Practice tattooing
2.       She has to keep moving.
3.       She will never, ever speak of what she knows about the club. And when they find her and she are brought back, she will be HIS.

One day while working at the shop in walks a man who wants a tattoo done. Helen’s guard instantly goes up because there is something about him and she is sensing some kind of weird connection to him.

Vin he is sexy, he is scary and Helen does not know what to think of him. After Helen tattoos him she thinks that is the last time she will see him. Little does she know it is not the last time. Vin keeps popping up and Helen has her guard fully in place, until finally Vin gets her to see that he is not a threat, or so she thinks.

As the story progress’ we find out that Vin has secrets his is not sharing either, but Helen is kind of ok with it because well she has secrets and things she has been hiding from Vin. And truth of the matter she can’t deny the feelings that are growing being with Vin.

"You deserve respect and love and everything your heart desires."
"You need to live your life instead of watching it pass you by."

When Helen’s past finally catches up with her it is Holden who is sitting in her apartment waiting for her. Helen knows that things are not going to end well for her and she has no choice but to go with Holden back to the MC Club.

Can Vin Save Helen?  Will the truth finally be all out in the open? Will Helen LIVE?  What will Holden do to protect the woman he loves?

I will say this if you are not a fan of Nicole’s already then I would grab this one up because I will guarantee when you are finished reading Beautiful Ink you will be a fan for sure.

Nicole, thank you from the bottom of my heart for sending this my way. You truly are one of my all time favorite authors and I have so Much MAD love for you woman.  I cannot wait for the next one in this series, so get writing woman LOL
