Drawn Together, By Lauren Dane


Beauty is more than skin-deep…Tattoo artist Raven Smith is blunt and hard, broken and jaded, dark and beautiful. While she doesn’t hide her painful past, she does keep a wall around her heart. She’s free sexually—but no one gets to the real Raven beneath the prickly exterior.

With a voice like smoke, Jonah Warner is a smooth-talking, highly successful attorney, with a body that should never be hidden by a suit. He’s the kind of man who never takes no for an answer and always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Raven. She’s a survivor, and he finds that incredibly alluring.

Jonah gets under her skin in a way Raven has never experienced. He makes her break all her rules—including her no-monogamy rule.

But when a figure from Raven’s past shows up at the tattoo parlor and drops a bomb into her life, their relationship will face the ultimate challenge…

I have soft spot for the tattooed heroine.  I think she’s kick ass.  And Raven Smith is no exception to my rule.  She is a bevy of contradictions, but is one of the most interesting characters I have read in a while.
Jonah…oh, he’s one of my favorite types of alphas.  Dressed in suit with a successful white collar job, but underneath he is pure sin.  He challenges Raven, gets her to let down some of her walls, gets under her skin just a little at a time…it’s a great journey.
Now for my favorite part, the sexy time.  This read is completely and utterly hot.  I love a man who knows what he wants and how he wants it, and gently bends the heroine to his will.  Some of the best sex scenes I have read in  recent memory are in this book…you will not be disappointed if you’re looking for a sexy read.

I thought the plot and pacing were great.  The twist in the story I have to admit I found a bit predictable, but that didn’t make the read any less enjoyable for me.  I think this is a fun story, with
great characters and good plot.  4 stars!
