Tattooed Dots (The Halo Series Book 1) by Kimberly Knight is a story about change, personal growth, love, humor, and strength.

Synopsis:

From USA Today bestselling author Kimberly Knight, comes book one in her heartfelt and sexy Halo series.

Inspired by a True Story.

 

People are brought into our lives for many reasons. Over time, we find out who is meant to be a temporary acquaintance and who will be there for a lifetime.

Easton Crawford put his modeling career before his marriage until it was ending in divorce. Years later, he is finally learning how to be the father his daughter needs him to be. He’s not looking for someone to step into the mother role—just nightly casual hook-ups.

When his best friend convinces him that a good way to meet single women is to go on a singles cruise, he finds more than just a one-night stand.

At age thirteen, Brooke Bradley became an adult, raising her younger sister while her mother continually ignored her parenting responsibilities. Since then, Brooke has continued to take care of the people in her life, including her deadbeat boyfriend, Jared.

For Brooke’s thirtieth birthday, her best friend surprises her with a cruise but fails to mention it’s a singles cruise. When Brooke meets Easton, the one man willing to be her constant, will she finally find the courage to leave Jared?

Easton knows that Brooke is someone who is meant to be in his life forever, but when a health scare threatens to change everything, Brooke and Easton are faced with unanswered questions and unspoken fears. Are Brooke and Easton only meant to be temporary acquaintances or are they brought into each other lives for a lifetime?

Ceej’s Review:

Tattooed Dots is a story about change, personal growth, love, humor, and strength.  It’s a story that makes you seriously think about your life even as it makes you laugh and cringe at the antics each character does.

Brooke makes me think about myself in a way.  No, I didn’t have an absentee mother or a missing father.  But I did grow up fast and have a big hand in raising my siblings.  Brooke is a woman of considerable strength and love and it was being wasted on that loser Jared.  She needed to drop him quick.  When she met Easton, I had high hopes that he’d be the one to earn her love because she deserved someone like that.  Her health scare put that ache in my heart.  I could sympathize, not in the same way, but I know what it’s like.  I was rooting for her all the way.

Easton…I didn’t like him in the beginning.  I really didn’t.  I was hoping Ms. Knight would redeem him by the end of the book.  I was hoping hard.  He was a douche.  However, by the middle of the book, he was proving to be the man that I needed Brooke to have!

I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll end this review by saying that I really enjoyed this book and Ms. Knight gave me two characters that I could hold close.
