Ok so Thoughts…
This was my first KK book. I liked it a lot.
I will say I had no freaking idea why the book was called Tattooed Dots til like 87% or something though! But what a great name it is.
The covers hot, so that’s what attracted me initially. Although personally I would of cut his head off! haha body yes, face no.
The writing style is told is alternative POV between B & E and even if their name wasn’t at the top of each chapter it was easy to tell who was who.
The story flowed nicely.
Great funny moments, Brooke & Easton’s sarcasm was great!
Declarations of love had me a bit misty eyed.
Sex scenes were top shelf, even though they didn’t happen till the back end of the book!
All in all a good read that Yes I do recommend.
