About the Author


Jane Charles has lived in the Midwest her entire life. As a child she would more likely be found outside with a baseball than a book in her hand. In fact, Jane hated reading until she was sixteen. Out of boredom on a long road trip she borrowed her older sister’s historical romance and fell in love with reading. She long ago lost count of how many fiction novels she has read over the years and her love for them never died.  Along with romance she has a passion for history and the two soon combined when she penned her first historical romance.  What turned into a hobby became a passion, which has been fully supported by her husband, three children and three cats.

Short story with a lot of emotion. Tear jerker too.

This is such a sweet story and a wonderful reminder not to judge another's situation based on appearances. It's a good reminder that we change as we age so let go of the past.

What a lovely short story. It has so many emotions in such a short story that I can't wait to find out what happens. You never know what people are going through before you make a decision about them. I would recommend this story for someone who love a true beginning romance and truthful story.

This is a very intense short story with a lot of emotion and drama packed into a short time frame. I guess I would call this New Adult, since it focuses on characters in their early to mid-twenties. The first-person viewpoint makes everything more immediate and personal. Kelsey has finally gotten up the courage and the money to get a tattoo that will help her remember someone very special in her life. Because she has agreed to be on a tv show and have a tattoo artist who is auditioning to be on the show do the tattoo, the tattoo will be half price. That's important for a struggling college student who doesn't have any extra money to throw around. However, she gets a shock when the tattoo artist turns out to be Alex, a boy she went to high school with at Baxter Academy. He gave her a hard time when she was in high school, and he didn't agree with the decisions she made about her life. Kelsey would rather have anybody else do her tattoo, but she can't reschedule, and she can't pass up the good deal, so she lets Alex do the tattoo. As Alex learns the story behind the tattoo that Kelsey wants and the decisions she made back in high school, he gets a whole new respect for Kelsey. He even opens up about his life and why he acted the way he did. I'm so glad this story continues in Still Rattled and The Rattle Box because Kelsey and Alex made such a connection that I was sure there was more to tell.

When I read the dedication, I know this story is going to be amazing. A story for all of the mothers in the world. Rattled perfectly conveys the emotion a mother had gone through in making a decision for her child. It was so difficult and heartbreaking. When Kelsey had to put her daughter for adoption, she believed that it would be the best for the child. Brady would be cared and loved with a better chance of future. It had been six years but Kelsey still remembered the feeling of holding her baby for the first time before letting her go forever. She wanted to make a tattoo to be reminded of her baby. She had been saving up some money and finally she got it. Alex never expected the girl he resented to be the one whose body he had to draw on. He had to get the job in Reeds so he convinced her to allow him to be her artist There are always two sides of coins. Alex saw Kelsey as the girl who abandoned her child while she saw him as the boy who doesn't understand. Throughout the story, the horrifying past of these two souls were revealed and they tore my heart. There were sadness, grief and pain in it. But the most beautiful thing in it was Kelsey's abundant love for her child. I got to know what Alex felt and I can't blame him for feeling what he did. To show love through art way also hooked me into the story immediately. Recommended read. Rating: 4.5 stars
