Overview

A tattoo gets them in trouble... He will get them out.
After years of cultivating an undercover identity, Brody West is finally off the case and free to live a life of his own. All that time spent in the company of criminals and killers left him a little jaded... and with an identity crisis. He isn't sure who he is anymore, or who he wants to be.
To give him time to think, he takes a few days off to go fishing. On his way out of town, he makes a routine stop at the bank and finds himself flirting with the girl behind the counter.
But his flirtation is cut short when criminals burst into the bank and shoot her right before his eyes.
In attempt to administer first aid, Brody reveals a tattoo on his back. A mark that will drag him and the girl into the kind of situation he was trying to get away from. But he can't walk away because he's the only thing capable of keeping Taylor alive and bringing down the guys who shot her-guys who are seriously dangerous.

Ever want a day off to just do nothing? Well, for the first time in a very long time, that is what undercover cop, Brody, our hero of Tattoo by Cambria Herbert, has one of those. A day to do nothing. He decides to go fishing but on the way out of town, swings by the bank. The bank that just-so happens to get robbed while he's in it. Talk about a series of unfortunate events. This book is fast, it picks up right from the get-go. You have no lulling moments, you just have a lot of action where you get completely sucked in and just keep flipping pages! You meet our heroine, Taylor, when she's helping Brody at the bank. They have chemistry right off the bat, flirting over the teller counter. So when the bank gets robbed and Taylor gets shot, what is a good guy like Brody to do? He helps her, of course! In the process however, he reveals a tattoo that makes everything go from unfortunate to disastrous. A bit of background, since you can read most of what I said in the synopsis. You actually meet Brody for the first time in Tipsy, if you've read it. He's an undercover cop that helps the hero of that book. That doesn't mean that Tattoo isn't a standalone, it is! In fact, all the books in the Take It Off series are standalones, some of them just link but without having to read the other ones to do it. Brody and Taylor have to figure out how to get out of the situation they are in. The writing here is fantastic, hot, and will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. If you're wondering, yes, there is an HEA and no cliffhanger here!! As I said before, standalone! It is also written from an alternating first person POV. This is one of those books I devoured in under a three hour mark!! A full five stars and a definite recommendation for Tattoo! In fact, if you loved Text, you will love Tattoo!!

Every new book in this series becomes my new favorite, and it happened again with this one! Brody made such a great badass alpha I completely fell in love! Especially love that each of these is a standalone novel. So many authors try to keep you hooked with a cliff hanger - Hate That. Can't wait for Tryst!

I'm torn in my review. The writing wasn't bad and the story held my attention but, I find it very hard to believe after what Regan went through she was even remotely interested in sex so soon. I'm strangely disturbed by it.

Brody West is an undercover cop that is taking a few days off after a mission so he can relax. Little did he know that stopping by the bank before going fishing would cause such a stir. Gang members decided to rob the place, and the teller Brody was flirting with winds up getting shot. With no relaxation time in sight, Brody has to maintain his cover identity since they spotted the tattoo he earned that marks him as one of their own. Tattoo starts off with a bang, and doesn't let up. I was rather taken with this book, but it was Brody that made me love it so oh so much. Brody is a good guy that is also a bad boy due to his job. He has that edge that makes most women go a bit starry eyed. He's also one of those protective types of guys. He barely knows Taylor but he steps up to the plate as soon as she's in danger and tries to protect her. Every now and then I just need that type of character, and this fit the bill. While the story was told in alternating POV, I feel like it slightly lacked a bit in Taylor's department, that's why I had to give Tattoo four stars. If you're looking for a fast paced book with a hunky undercover cop, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Tattoo.

My rating: 3.5 of 5 ¿¿ When after a long gang-related assignment, undercover Officer Brody West pops into the bank at the start of his much needed fishing trip, he finds himself in the middle of a bankheist. Just minutes before flirting with the gorgeous redhead teller behind the counter, he is now whispering at her to duck out of sight, while his mind is scrambling to take in all his possible means of action. Even though fear is almost paralyzing, Taylor Shaw's anger is stronger and not about to let thiefs get away with the money from the bank vault. But when her temper ends up getting her shot, it is the friendly customer who had told her to hide, who jumps to her rescue. Using his shirt to stop her bleeding, he reveals a tattoo that suddenly changes the demeanor of the robbers. With Taylor in need of medical care, Brody has no choice but to play along with the gang of criminals and they end up being taken along. Normally not one to get attached, something about this girl has brought all of his protective instincts out in full force. He has to make sure she is taken care of, but first he will have to avoid being found out. Taylor is grateful to find out Brody is in fact a cop, but realizes the predicament they are in. She has no choice but to trust him completely since he is taking care of her wounds and she is completely dependent on him. But he also makes her feel oddly safe, despite their dire circumstances and she can't help but wonder if it is their desparate circumstances that draw her to him. **** Action right from the get go!! A good quick read of a story that spans only a short timeframe, namely the back robbery itself and a brief period of perhaps a day or two thereafter for the most part. By and large, the most interesting character is Brody, the undercover cop, who has gotten a little lost in his alternate identities and isn't quite sure who to be on his 'off' time anymore. Not a whole lot of time is spent examining the repercussions of undercover work in general and its effects on someone's personal life, but Ms. Hebert does give some strong hints that Brody's personal life has become, for all intents and purposes, non-existent. Taylor was a very likeable character, spunky, sometimes more so than was wise. But definitely not a whiner or a weakling. We know she lost her mother at some point and her father largely raised her, but there is very little mention of how that may have shaped her, other than some suggestions that she may have some tomboyish tendencies. No deep subcutaneous digging here either, a slight skimming of the surface at most. The chemistry between these two, however, was unmistakable and sweetly heated. They worked together, the edge of darkness on Brody, combined with the hint of innocence that clings to Taylor makes for a nice combo. I was a little disappointed in the lack of depth with these characters, I think I have come to expect a little more from Ms. Hebert. The plot concept is fabulous, there is no question about that. The execution of the story line was less so, in that too much was left on the table in my opinion. With a plot this rich in potential, it seemed like not all the possibilites were explored. It felt a little like getting from A to B the most efficient way, instead of the best or most interesting way. Overall the book felt rushed, as if not as much attention was spent finishing it properly, with the same attention to detail as previous books in the series. Things that would probably have been picked up by taking the time for a good round of beta reads or one more final edit. Despite that, this is a fabulous series and TATTOO is still a very good representation of Cambria Hebert's style and worth a read. ¿Edgy intense action, with a splash of spice!¿ **Copy provided in return for an honest review.**

My Review: 5.0 Star Review - Tattoo This book is freaking awesome. As are all of the Take It Off series books. They can be read as stand alones but really you should just read them all!! Brody is ripped with tattoo's all over. One of them is going to get him into trouble. Taylor is working when someone tries to rob the bank. When she gets shot Brody tries to help out only to suck them into more trouble. Now they have to leave with the robbers. Brody has to do is take down the robbers and save the girl. Easy right? But is it too easy? Is it really over or just the beginning? Brody and Taylor are both strong characters. You can feel the chemistry from both of them. Love Cambria's stories and can't wait for the next release!!!

I just cannot get enough of this series! I think I say that every time a book is released! Tattoo is certainly a new twist to a romantic suspense and I loved every minute of it!  You have a simple day, in a bank, when all of a sudden, BAM! Armed Robbery! Hello! Worst fear EVER! The whole scenario had me shaked because it is something that happens in the real world and where I live, has been happening a lot lately. But there was a spin to it that starts Tattoo off with a bang (literally)! A teller, Taylor, had just finished a transaction when the robbery occurs and tries to hide and call 911 for assistance. However, she gets caught and even though she tries to be ballsy and save the bank, she ends up getting shot in the arm. The guy she was helping, Brody, comes to her aide to help stop the bleeding, and by taking off his shirt. Little did he know that would be the biggest mistake he could have made.  Brody while trying to talk to Taylor gets noticed from the robbers because of a tattoo that he has. Its not an ordinary tattoo, its a gang symbol showing your way through the ranks. See, Brody was an undercover cop with a different life and a different name while he helped break a case that ended up busting the gang’s leader. In order to truly fit in, the tattoo had to happen or he would be found out as a snark. Brody’s desire to get him and Taylor to safety ends when the member’s of the gang make them leave with them.  This is just how the suspense and romance starts! Brody has to figure out a way to get Taylor to safety and real medical attention (she was shot after all). Even if they do get out alive, what will happen once they are back in the public eye and gang members come after them?  Brody is a protective, strong willed individual that still has blurred lines between who is as a person when it comes to being a cop in the "real world" and being undercover. His fear of someone getting hurt because of his past is becoming a reality for him.  Taylor is a girl that I can connect with. She is independent, a little tomboyish, but there is still that girly girl in here that comes out at the perfect times. She wants to succeed in her life, in love, and in her career and she damn well knows what she wants and she is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. This book is a great read that will leaving you wanting more of this couple! It leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat, biting your nails, and waiting for the next moment to arrive. I loved it so much I read it in one night (Cambria’s books have this effect on me). Do yourself a favor and read Brody and Taylor’s story!
