[Release Blitz + Review] Inked by Tracy Lorraine

TITLE: Inked
A Driven World Novel & Rebel Ink Series Crossover
AUTHOR: Tracy Lorraine
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: October 15, 2020


Some might say I'm running... I say I’m embarking on the life I’ve always dreamed of. It’s all I have left. 

LA is everything I hoped it would be—a distraction from the life I’m desperate to escape. Fresh air and a fresh start. A chance to rediscover myself. 

But before I can do that, I discover her. 

Harlow Winters. She falls into my lap, and everything changes. 

The artist in me recognizes her beauty. The broken man relates to the darkness threatening to consume her. 

Suddenly, the future isn’t quite as daunting. 

I’m trying to escape my past... but she refuses to let hers go. 

With the scars of our past inked onto our skin and tattooed on our hearts, can we salvage a future under the weight of our memories, or will they crush us both? 

Tracy Lorraine’s Inked is a heart-wrenching, emotionally charged, steamy, contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Driven Worlds project.





4.5 Stars from Tiffany!

The Driven World Lives On

Not that I am a huge part of the Driven world, as this is the second book I have read from the spin off series, but I sure liked it. Inked features yet another handsome man with an accent looking for the right lady to calm him down.

Corey is that handsome British man who finds himself working at an LA tattoo shop to leave his problems across the pond. Only thing is, problems tend to follow you wherever you go. Corey is a good guy that had a series of unfortunate events happen to him, which has created the tough exterior shell he shows the world. He isn't looking for any type of long term romance, a quick roll in the hay is what he's all about.

Enter Harlow. She is the something he has been missing, however he doesn't realize it yet. Broken sees broken and that is what Harlow sees in Corey. She has had enough pain for a lifetime and isn't sure how her future is going to end up. One thing she does know that it is with a family of her own.

I liked both of these characters instantly. They were each dealing with thier pasts in different ways. Corey was the brick wall guy while Harlow is careful not to fall into her old habits. They were written earning for something or someone and with the pasts these two have, nothing was going to be easy. There are issues that need to be dealt with and finally put away for both of them to be able to move on.

Inked is well written and has a little bit of everything to keep the storyline moving along, including a gaggle of friends and family. I'm not sure if these are characters from the series, but they fit in this story nicely. If I had one tiny complaint, it was the "W-what?" dialogue constantly from both characters. I found it distracting after a while. Inked reads as a standalone with a nice epilogue to wrap things up.
