Tattooed Scars (Tattooed Billionaire Series #2) by Alicia Rae *~*~*~*~*~* Read-A-Long, Giveaway & Review


We're so thrilled to be participating in the third day of the read-a-long of TATTOOED SCARS!

What happened in chapters 10 - 14?

The oncologist in New York offers Raelyn a different option than the others - surgery. All of the other doctors, however, told her surgery was entirely too risky with the location of the tumor. Her initial reaction is absolutely not, but she tells Dr. Coleman and Damien she’ll think about it - but she’s not ready to talk about it yet.
When Raelyn returns home, she meets with the client, Annabelle Faye, who has a last minute issue. Damien comes storming in during their meeting, enraged about Annabelle’s presence. It turns out Annabelle Faye and Damien have an unexpected connection and he demands Raelyn leave with him right away.
Damien wants to get away with Raelyn, so he takes her on a surprise trip and won’t tell her where they’re going. She has a fever when they get on the plane and she ends up passing out for the entire trip. When she wakes up, they’re about to land - in Hawaii.

Favourite Quotes:

“So, are you going to let me in on the joke? Or should I pull over and ravish you on the hood of my car until you tell me?”
“Never thank me for wanting to look out for you, Raelyn.” His eyes met mine. His expression was soft and genuine. “I will always take care of you.”
“No matter what life brings us, you rekindled my heart.”

Discussion Questions:

  • Did you expect Annabelle to turn out to be who she is?
  • If a man were going to take you on a surprise trip, where would you want him to take you?

Tattooed Scars (Tattooed Billionaire Series #2) by Alicia Rae
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5

Some scars run deep...

Raelyn and Damien are back right where they left off in Tattooed Emotions! And while I hoped and hoped Raelyn was nauseous because she was pregnant, my hopes were dashed. Join the two lovebirds on a trip looking for a cure and love. While both try to protect the other from the truth to avoid hurting the one they love the most will they succeed in the protection they seek or just push the other away? And now a bit about the story...

Why would anyone ever leave the bed of a sexy, domineering billionaire? I'm not sure, but Raelyn does because her work ethic drives her to the office. But then the dizziness and nausea set in and even a few black outs. When Damien discovers she is sick again he takes her on a whirlwind trip looking for a cure. Between fighting off new clients, potential partners, and her sexy boyfriend... Raelyn just wants to freeze time in hopes of staying forever with him!

Favorite passages:
- “The only person you have to live your life for is yourself, Raelyn.”
- It seemed like the first jump was always the hardest, no matter what it was in life.
