"Ink Lust" By: Jayne Kingston Review

Ink Lust
By: Jayne Kingston

Synopsis from Goodreads
Leni Brewster should have been disappointed when her twin sister had to bail on holding her hand during her first tattoo, but going to her appointment solo means time alone with the sexy-as-hell tattoo artist who falls into the Do Not Touch category. Only Jamie Rodriguez isn't as off-limits as Leni thinks. Privately single for months, Jamie finds himself more than looking forward to having the hot little librarian in his chair. And when she accidentally reveals a naughty secret about herself, he can't get his hands on her fast enough-he has to know what else she's hiding under that buttoned-up exterior. What he discovers sets his blood to boiling, igniting a burning determination to test every single one of the boundaries, both personal and physical, that she's set for herself.
My Thoughts

     I’m going to be completely honest here and admit I picked this book up because it featured a librarian. I like tattooed heroes, add in a naughty librarian, and you have a recipe for a perfect book right? Unfortunately, those were really the only two things I enjoyed about this book.
     The story starts out with Leni getting a tattoo from Jamie. He has tattooed her sister previously but always had a bit of a crush on Leni. Once the tattoo is finished, he offers her a ride home. What do you think happens once they enter her apartment?
    I have a problem with instant lust stories and this book is pretty much that to a T. I appreciated the author trying to get the librarian stereotype broken but it was not very tastefully done. I didn’t care for either of the characters, they both seemed vapid and just flat out irritating. I tried to like this one and honestly thought the whole package was there, but I couldn’t get past the flat characters and almost zero story line.
