She has one rule: Never sleep with someone twice.
Faith Hitchin wears the shadows of the past on her skin for
all to see. To a stranger’s eye, she is a girl with sass and tattoos, a lover
of art. But beneath the mystery of swirls and ink, she is woman alone and in
When opportunity knocks in the form of an invitation to an
art project that could change the direction of her life, she’s afraid to move
forward. But, like her namesake, she pushes past all inhibitions and takes a
leap of Faith. The last thing she imagines is a summer of self-discovery at the
hands of a sexy Baroness’ son.
Elijah Fairclough is arrogant yet charming, complicated but
forthcoming. With his blue eyes, expensive suits and evasive attitude, it seems
he’s used to getting what he wants, and he wants nothing more than to discover
the woman beneath the tattoos in every way possible. Will Elijah’s persistence
make her break her only rule, or will there be tears of ink?
Tears of Ink is the first book in the Tears Of…duet By Anna Bloom. It is also the first book I have read by Anna, and I know it won’t be my last. She has gained a new fan in me. I will admit that I signed up to review it because the cover caught my eye. It’s beautiful and so was the words inside.
Faith has her rules. Number one being that she never went back for seconds. No attachments. No emotions. One and done. She has never broken this rule. Ever. The men she was with didn’t complain. They only wanted to get their rocks off too. Then walk away. The rule is there for a reason. And one of them just walked into her life. Elijah Fairclough.
He is a man she could get lost in. Even with his over-active ego at their first meeting. After spending time together, she discovers he has two sides to him. She is torn between trusting either of them. Now, that she has spent time at his family’s home working as an artist, she is starting to understand why he is so hot and cold. She thought her family was fucked up. His is even more. She grew up in a tattoo parlor. He grew up in a castle. Both of them wish to feel free.
I don’t want to spoil anything so I will leave it at that. I will say that I loved Faith and Eli. Their banter. Their heat. Their connection. Their complications. It was an addicting story. It was also beautiful, funny, and emotional. I also enjoyed the secondary characters and the art throughout the book. I felt her passion for it.
Overall…it was a fantastic read. Poetic. Witty. Fresh. Addicting. I can’t wait for the next book. Thank you Anna for not making it a long wait.
He gives a small shake of his head. “You’re like a razor.”
“Don’t get too close then,” I retort.
“Seriously, this is very Flowers in the Attic. Are you taking me to where you’ve been locked up your whole childhood?”
This guy, he confuses me. Makes me want to run, makes me want to stay. Makes me question everything.
