About the Book:
Jed Gentry is doing just fine, thank you very much, running his tattoo studio in Austin, Texas. So what if people think he’s a bit on the surly side? He’s been burned by his ex who sticks around to torture him and he lives with a family heartache that he’d rather not talk about. But he’s got a thriving business, his dream car, and good friends. Not much to complicate things. At least, not until she walked in…
Kyle O’Neill has had it with being the sheltered daddy’s girl at the family accounting firm and is ready to spread her wings and fly on her own for the first time. Unfortunately, it seems she’s about to fall flat on her face when her first and only client is – gulp — a tattoo artist! Her country club upbringing certainly hasn’t prepared her for this place or the sizzling attraction her traitorous body feels for the grumpy owner.
But there is a Divine conspiracy at work here pushing these two together. And they are hell bent on bucking the Heavenly plan all the way. Luckily, their angel is a true believer and pulls every trick he knows from under his halo to make this a match made in Heaven.
Who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor?
A well-written, clever romance with a twist, Inked by an Angel reminds us that love exists in the unlikeliest places, and that we may need a “guardian angel” to help us find what was meant to be all along.
An unlikely romantic match for the conservative Kyle, Jed is the perfect tattoo artist “bad-boy”: all intimidating ink and piercings on the outside, sensitive artist on the inside. The author succeeds in showing his vulnerability, but never takes away the edge that makes him so sexy. The relationship slowly builds momentum, with plenty of up and down drama, to the point where I nearly cheered out loud when they finally arrived on the same page.
An easy read, with relatable characters, a touch of humor, and just enough heartache. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series!
