The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Release Blitz & Giveaway for Nicole Reed's "Beautiful Ink (Beautiful Ink # 1)."

Amazon UK:


This novel is not a cliffhanger and can be read as a stand-alone. 

WARNING: This book is real, beautifully raw, and not for the faint of heart. It is the story of a young girl’s loss of innocence while growing up around a motorcycle club. It is not suitable for children under the age of seventeen due to language, sexual content, and intense subject matter. Based on true events.


I have tattooed that single word on more skin than I care to count. It elicits powerful thoughts and emotions for most people.

Loving. Caring. Supportive. Togetherness. Forever.

But not for me. The word family means so much more.

Vicious. Harmful. Dangerous. Corrupt. Deadly. You can’t run forever from the ones who love you.

Review: Kirsty Lander

It's official.. Nicole Reed is a genius. I fell in love with her writing in her first series,The Ruining Series, and since then her writing has got better and better. Beautiful Ink was out of this world. The writing was flawless, the characters were interesting and the story was captivating. I was glued from start to finish. It has been a long time since I have fallen in love with a book and its characters, but I did, 100% with this book.

"This is for those who carry a piece of their soul inked out lovingly on their skin."

CHILLS. I hadn't even got to the story, just the dedication, and Nicole had already given me chills. I knew immediately that there was no way I wouldn't love this book. And then I read the prologue and I knew I was done for.. I couldn't wait to carry on and just devour the whole thing. This book takes all sorts of things I love, throws them together, and takes you on one of the most amazing rides. We've got an MC club, a tattoo artist, a hero coming along to save said tattoo artist and a whole lot of twists and turns. I loved it!

"Diamond showed me the beauty that lies within the art of tattooing. If you respect the magic, appreciate the art, and forge yourself in the blood, a piece of your soul lives with another." 

It's so hard to talk about this book and the storyline without giving too much away. Nicole has created a story that has so many twists and turns that giving away part of it, would reveal a whole lot of the other parts. What I can say is that the way in which she has told this story is just clever. We have mixtures of past and present, different sets of characters, and we are always wondering if and when the past will catch up to the present, with everybody in one place. It was edge-of-your-seat stuff.

I loved every single character in this book and often felt myself torn over whether I should in fact like this character or that. There were 'bad guys', the ones we were meant to like and the ones we couldn't help but love, regardless of their actions. The situations these characters found themselves in were, at times, heart breaking. Not one person had an easy time in this book and Nicole really showed that. There were no easy choices for the characters to make.

"You deserve respect and love and everything your heart desires."
"You need to live your life instead of watching it pass you by."

I am so looking forward to the rest of this series, whatever those books may be about. Whether they are about the same characters, or some of the secondary characters, then I know I am going to love it just as much. Nicole's writing and story telling ability is out of this world and I feel so lucky to be reading it. I couldn't rate this book anything less that 5 Hearts
