Family.
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.

MY REVIEW
I have to star by saying that im not a lover of MC books but i thought i would give this one a go and i was surprised i really liked it.
This book was more the story of Keller and her struggles to live away from the MC and not so much concentrated on the Motorcycle club itself.
Beautiful Ink is a raw and gritty harsh read, its a story of survival, not just for Keller but other characters too, Luke and Hold Mickey.
The flash backs from the present and to the future really unwrapped this story a little at a time giving you just enough to keep you guessing, to keep you on your toes to keep reading.

Beautiful Ink is a journey of broken love, i could feel for Hold even if i really didnt like him at times, because he deep down truly loved Keller/Helen. The way he had been brought up within the MC really screwed his rights from wrongs and the way to show love, the whole MC enviroment is so very screwed up in my mind.
Keller/Helen is torn in half by loving the friend that helped her as a child and then hating the man her grew into and the life he leads through the MC.
This book pulls you in so many directions and then there is a twist that slaps you upside the head
near the end, god its a brilliant piece of writing.
