Tattooed Emotions Synopsis: Raelyn Jennings has survived the unthinkable. She’s been given a second chance to live, to breathe, to feel. Her ability to overcome such a traumatic hurdle has created armor around her heart. But beyond her shield is fear, a consuming deep one, of the unknown. Raelyn vows to herself that she’ll solely focus on the one constant in her life, her career as the CEO for a prestigious accounting firm. Damien Heathman’s unrelenting determination has made him a powerful, respected man. He’s sexy and confident and utterly breathtaking. His dominance and strength is evident in every purposeful stride, every meaningful look, and every soft caress. Raelyn has worked with Damien’s company, Heathman Enterprises, for many years, but they’ve never crossed paths—until now. Damien’s presence fills a room. He steals Raelyn’s breath and sparks her broken heart back to life. Once Damien sets eyes on Raelyn, there is no turning back. He wants her, and he’ll stop at nothing to have her. Not even the dark secrets hidden behind his tattoos will stand in his way. The chemistry is undeniable. The passion is palpable. Can Damien convince Raelyn that he is worth the risk? Or will Raelyn allow her past to control her future, feeling the chance of another heartache is too great to bear?

   Exclusive Excerpt: Damien lightly laid me on the bed, removed my towel, and tucked me beneath the sheets. “Do you need anything? Water, saltines, anything?” Concern filled his features once again. “No.” I smiled. “I’m fine. Just tired.” He nodded his acknowledgment, and then he walked to the bathroom door while pulling his soaking wet shirt from his back. He tossed it on the chair, every muscle flexing with his movements. I might have been tired, but that didn’t stop me from being stunned into silence as my body flamed to life at the sight of his bare torso. My greedy eyes traveled from one end of his shoulder to the other, drinking in the beauty of his ink. Without glancing at me, he sauntered over to his dresser to pull out a dark-colored shirt. “Don’t,” I whispered, feeling my heart stop beating in my chest. It destroyed me a little every time he concealed this part of himself from me. I knew something awful had happened to Damien and that he didn’t want to talk about it, but him hiding it from me hurt beyond any other physical pain I’d ever experienced. His arms paused midair, and he gazed over his shoulder. From his side profile, I saw the instant his body tensed, and his jaw clenched.“Please…” I swallowed thickly and dug for courage. “You want me to stay. And I want to lie with you…with nothing between us.” I realized I was being unfair, but I was that desperate. A visible tremor shook through him. It felt as though an eternity had passed before he spoke, “Don’t touch them.” My heart swelled within its confined space. He was going to trust me. “I won’t,” I breathed in relief. “I promise.” “Don’t ever break a promise to me, Raelyn.” He slowly lowered his arms and pivoted to face me. “So, don’t make one if you can’t keep it.” “I keep my promises,” I vowed with the utmost sincerity. “As do I. Always.” His voice was reverent.

Tattooed Emotions (Tattooed #1) by Alicia Rae
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5 

Heartwarming and Hot... couldn't put it down!

Wonderful new series from Alicia Rae staring Raelyn Jennings , a wonderful lady with a huge heart, and Damien Heathman, a sexy billionaire who's overcome his past. The rollercoaster of emotions in this story seem to follow the path of Damien's tribal tattoos. And now a bit about the story...

She is recovering from a broken heart, but excited to find out her life threatening brain tumor is in remission and she can head back to work to focus on her career. He is ready to crush Adam and Jennings Accounting Services. That is until she walks into the conference room. His plan flies out the window as another one takes its place. Can Raelyn protect her heart? Will their past experiences come back to haunt them?

I can't wait to continue reading Raelyn and Damien's story!!

Favorite passages:
- The only way to be rid of it would be to let nature run its course and let faith guide us, hoping to still be standing in the end.
- God, where is your mustard or ketchup or ranch stain? I need something! He has to have at least one flaw visible to the eye! Damien cleared his throat and laughed. “Excuse me?” My entire body went rigid, practically seizing with fright. No. No. I couldn’t have possibly said that aloud.
- “So, you have a past. Everyone does.”
- “My world is no longer hollow with only darkness.”
