Prequel/novella to the Dangerous series by Eden Bradley. Absolutely amazing BDSM erotic romance!
Dangerously Inked was the first of Eden Bradley's books I ever read, and to say I was blown away would be an understatement. It is the prequel novella in the Dangerous series by Ms. Bradley, and her skill as an author is exceptional. I am very impressed with Ms. Bradley and the entire Dangerous series. This is the story of Finn, a Dominant and BDSM club owner from Atlanta by way of Australia, and Roisin (Rosie) Gallagher, a submissive and tattoo artist from New Orleans. They meet at The Bastille, New Orleans' famous BDSM club, when Finn's friend, Mick, introduces them on New Year's Eve. While there is immediate chemistry between the two, Rosie is no pushover. She is independent, fiery, feisty, and more than a little defiant. She has a history, and it's not easy for her to give in to her submissive side. Yet it's what she craves, needs, desires...and she can't live without it. She's captivated by Finn. Even as they meet and she feels an immediately strong attraction to him, she resists. It's just her nature. But New Year's Eve with Finn may just be the hottest, sexiest, most intense night of BDSM play she's ever experienced! Finn, too, has a history. And he doesn't do relationships. He's in New Orleans because his life's boring. Even his internet security business and club in Georgia no longer hold his interest. Mick has offered him a job, and he's seriously considering it. It would give him a new start, a fresh focus. What he never counted on was Rosie, and the effect she has on him. One night...they shared one night. Sure, it was one night of the most intensely pleasurable and memorable BDSM play either ever experienced. But that's ALL it was. Rosie is a true artist. Her work is brilliant. The first morning at work after New Year's Eve at the club, as Rosie is getting ready for her day, she turns to find her first customer is none other than Finn. Shocked, and more than a little dismayed, Rosie puts on her best game face. Finn had no idea that Rosie Gallagher, the famous New Orleans tattoo artist was Roisin from The Bastille, and he's just as stunned as Rosie. From here, Ms. Bradley takes the reader on a romantic, yet incredibly realistic, journey through the world of BDSM as seen through the eyes of Finn and Rosie. Ms. Bradley has been an active participant in the BDSM lifestyle for many years and the details and knowledge of that lifestyle as portrayed in her novels are incredibly accurate. But, for me personally, it's not just the BDSM itself that drew me in and made me love this story. Yes, I admit that I have a fascination with this lifestyle and have learned as much about it as I possibly can. But Ms. Bradley has the ability to craft real, believable, and relatable characters that the reader becomes invested in. And it's not just the main characters either. The supporting cast of characters are completely developed and fully detailed. I felt I was living in the story with the characters. I was completely riveted from the first page to the last. As this is a novella, it only took me a couple of hours to finish it but I was so totally engaged in the story that everything around me seemed to disappear. While I have a tendency to do that with any good book I read, Ms. Bradley's books seem to have the ability to do that from the very beginning, unlike some others that take a few chapters to really engage my interest. I highly recommend Dangerously Inked and give it my highest rating without reservation!
