Tattooed Dots

Easton Crawford put his modeling career and good looks before his marriage until it was over. Years later, he is finally learning how to be the father his daughter needed him to be. Hes not looking for a new mom for his daughter—just nightly casual hook-ups. When his best friend, Avery, convinces him that a good way to meet a lot of single women is to go on a singles cruise, Easton finds more than just a hook-up when he meets a fellow cruiser, Brooke.

Brooke Bradley has taken care of her younger sister, Bailee, for most of their lives. While their mother was enjoying not being a mother, Brooke became the adult in the household at thirteen. She had always taken care of the people in her life, especially her boyfriend, Jared. If it wasnt for Brooke, Jared wouldnt know how to function throughout the day.

When Brookes best friend, Nicole, gives her a gift of going on a cruise without telling her that its a singles cruise, will Brooke find someone willing to be her constant and finally leave Jared?

Brooke and Easton learn that people are brought into their lives for many reasons. Over time, they find out what those reasons are. Some are to be a temporary acquaintance while others are there for life.

What will Easton do when he meets Brooke and realizes that she is someone that is meant to be in his life forever, especially after Brooke has an unexpected surgery and Easton is scared of losing her forever?

Crystal's review:
Tattooed Dots....I really wasn't sure what to expect just by title alone. Since I didn't read the blurb, I dove head first into the book and made it half-way in one night. I wanted to finish it all but unfortunately that would have left me zombified the whole day. 

I love how the story begins. Her best friend suckers her into a cruise and it's the best thing that could ever happen to Brooke. From the cruise, the story becomes amazing with deep one on one conversations and absolutely no touching. Bittersweet goodbyes and a broken Xbox later, the story takes a different direction that does make a Kleenex box come in handy.

Tattooed Dots is the first novel I have read by Kimberly and I can guarantee that it will not be the last. She is extremely talented at setting the stage and building up a story. I am so glad that this is not a stand alone. So many characters have unfinished business by the end of Tattooed Dots. 

So on that note, Tattooed Dots is really a great read and I recommend reading this if you want a chuckle, steamy scenes and watery eyes.
