“So many people think that money and materialistic objects equal happiness when they don’t. Our happiness should come from our family and friends and creating memories with them that will last a lifetime.”
Tattooed Scars is book 2 in the Tattooed Series by Alicia Rae. I absolutely LOVED Damien and Raelyn in Tattooed Emotions but their connection is so much stronger in Tattooed Scars and I loved seeing them grow together.
“I didn’t even know I had a heart until I set eyes on Raelyn. Now, when I’m not with her, my heart fucking aches for her. She makes me dream of a future I never thought possible.
I promise, I’ll never hurt her. When she cries, my heart fucking bleeds. And you’d better believe, I’ll be by her side, holding her hand, through any storm that might cross her path.”
Tattooed Scars is the continued journey of Damien and Raelyn. I can’t say too much without spoiling book 1 for those that haven’t read it but I highly recommend this series. I absolutely cannot wait for March when Forever Tattooed comes out!
“I love your strength and your determination and your beautiful heart that you’ve shown me time and time again. I even love it when you get all bossy on me. It shows me that you care enough to fight.”
I didn’t even realize I had been crying and shaking uncontrollably until I felt Damien open the passenger door. He unhooked my seat belt and lifted me into his strong arms.
“Shh, I’ve got you, Raelyn,” he breathed. He softly pressed his lips to my hair to kiss me. “And I’m never letting you go.”
I looped my arms around his shoulders and buried my face into his neck. Deep sobs racked through my body, my tears soaking his flesh.
Damien carried me through the breezeway and into the house where his long strides ascended the curvy staircase.
When we reached his bedroom, he gently placed me on the bed. Then, he climbed in beside me and pulled me into him.
The afternoon sun beamed in through the windows, yet I’d never been so tired and drained in all my life. I felt trapped with a relentless fear, and my mind was on overload. It wanted to shut down and block out the past two hours of my life.
My only solace was the man before me, caging me with his warmth.
Our faces were less than an inch apart, and Damien closed the small gap to brush his lips along mine for a passionate, tender kiss, reaching the depths of my soul. “I love you, Raelyn.” His gray irises stared at me with nothing other than love, melting me. “And nothing will stand in my way of making you mine—forever.”
And I wanted to be his, more than anything.
