Book Description:

Even if he weren’t the lead singer of the popular college band, Luminescent Juliet, Justin Noel would have his pick of women. And he does pick. Nightly. Tattooed, blonde, and green eyed, he flashes his dimples and females swoon.

Except for one.

Tattoo artist, Allie Landon, rarely dates, and especially not men like Justin. Though he’s hot enough to melt off permanent ink, she’s done with the bad boy type. But when the ex who broke her heart wants to reunite, desperation has Allie introducing her latest client as her boyfriend. Justin’s more than happy to play the part. He’s completely intrigued by the sexy artist and college student.

However, Allie’s life isn’t what it seems. There’s little room in it or her shattered and confused heart for Justin. But as Justin remains persistent, ignoring the growing attraction—both physical and emotionally—between them becomes more difficult than tattoo removal.

*New Adult. Recommended for mature readers due to language, drug references, and sexual situations
 Globug's Take

I have been anxiously waiting for this book. Hootie and I both loved the first book in the series IN THE BAND. Huge concert whore that I am, I can't resist a good book about musicians. You meet Justin in the first book. He's the lead singer of the band Luminescent Juliet with a reputation of being a womanizer, no surprise there. He's just looking for a new distraction (hot piece of ass) when he finds Allie. Allie is a tattoo artist and part owner of Dragonfly Ink. Justin is interested as soon as he hears her low husky voice. Too bad for him she's emotionally unavailable. 

It's been two years since Allie's divorce. She still suffers from the scars of her broken heart. She's determined to resist Justin's charms. Justin's not willing to give up on his advances so when her ex strolls back into town, Justin is more than willing to stand in as Allie's new (pretend) love interest. Allie never expected to connect with or have anything in common with Justin. He constantly surprises her with his emotional depth and honesty. Justin's feelings quickly run deeper than he knew he was capable of. You sense that Allie is keeping something big from Justin. Yeah, i'm not gonna tell you what it is. 

Justin really dug himself deep into my heart. With parents that have always been extremely selfish and neglectful, Justin is really just a lonely boy. He opens his heart and falls hard for Allie without question of her past. But her ex Trevor has come to make trouble. Allie pushes Justin away to protect whats most important in her life from Trevor. It was painful to read as Justin's heart is broken. Justin comes to his senses just in time and refuses to let Allie go without a fight. Ink My Heart is a must read and I highly recommend you read In The Band as well. Both books can be read as a stand alone but some of the characters do crossover.

Favorite Quote

"Listen to me closely, Justin. Love isn't fear. It's courage. Courage to trust, courage to give, courage to fight. Be fearless and fight for this girl. It's obvious to me--even from miles away-- after forty minutes of listening to you talk that you're in love. Use your love to be courageous."-page 253 (Justin's childhood nanny speaking)
