BOOK REVIEW: Allure by Lacey Weatherford

Anyone in the mood for a new tattoo? I know a few artists that I’d love to get inked by…check out today’s reviews that feature tattoo hotties! Get inked with a new book!

Allure by Lacey Weatherford

4.95 Stars

Want a sweet and sexy read where there are “no head games, no playing hard to get,” AND there’s Six Jagger— tattoo artist by day and exotic dancer by night!  Allure is a great story about trust, communication, and faithfulness.

Set in/around Las Vegas, Brooklyn Hall, 17, seeks out tattoo artist Trey “Six” Jagger, 22, when she wants a tattoo done to honor the memory of her brother, Six’s friend, who has recently died in a hit and run. Six has been attracted to Brooklyn since the first time he saw her and the feeling is mutual.

There are a lot of sweet moments and some fun ones too. I’m not normally crazy about stories where a stripper is one of the lead characters but Six pulls it off magnificently and what he does at the show makes him all the more hotter. Seriously, you’ll need a fan when reading that part. It’s cute and sexy all in one. In the acknowledgements, the author states that the book got a little steamier than she intended but I’m glad it did. She did a great job with the steam factor while not making it feel like a total lust fest. Six and Brooklyn have really strong and deep feelings for each other.

Despite her age, Brooklyn is mature, but her father doesn't see it that way. Brooklyn’s father is the corrupt town mayor, and there’s is a tad bit of mystery/suspense involving the extent of his dirty and possibly dangerous dealings.

I do wish the end would have been a little longer. There is no epilogue and a few lingering questions of where Six went and what he does with his careers.

Told from Six and Brooklyn’s alternating 1st person POV, it is a stand alone book. No cliffhanger. HEA
