Brooklyn is a talented artist with an obsession for blood; one that she satiates at her uncle's tattoo shop. It's here at The Bleeding Heart that Brooklyn practices the art of dispensing pain onto others. Yet, nothing can dull the desire running through her veins, especially since the man she really wants to torture rots in jail for murder.

When Daniel comes into her life, Brooklyn's obsession with tattoos and blood quickly turns into desire for him. She dreams about getting him on her tattoo table as her first official customer, marking him as her own. But Daniel has a different idea as to what they should be doing with their bodies.

As Brooklyn spirals out of control, her sanity begins to slip right along with whatever is left of her humanity. Daniel may be the only one left to save her, if she lets him in. In the end she will have to choose between exacting vengeance, staying alive, or loving Daniel.

Dark and twisted, this story will leave your brain in chaos and your heart in pieces. The author uses lyrical prose to lead you into the broken world of Brooklyn and her fight to regain her sanity.

The premise for this book intrigued me! And I wasn't disappointed. Brooklyn's character is messed up, in a way that fascinated me. Her background, her obsession makes her a unique and complex girl. It was a pleasure to be allowed in her twisted mind. Driven to get to the end to see how the story played out, I read this one pretty fast. The book is well-written, despite a few spelling mistakes and missing words... oops, mistakes happen. *shrug* At the beginning of each chapter is a paragraph in italics that made me weep for joy at the gorgeousness of the words. Weep, people. I reread many of them numerous times to soak in the pretty, pretty words. Not a romance lover, I enjoyed the love story, but the lusty scenes did bother me. Brooklyn's sexual past wasn't exactly clear, I thought she was a virgin... but the way she went after Daniel seemed very experienced and adult-like and I never can connect with lusty scenes, they always seem unrealistic to me (probably just me). Also with her terrible past, I didn't quite buy that she'd be so willing to be that intimate with a guy. The sex scenes did happen off camera. The underlying feel of danger lurked through the story and when it finally struck I was captivated... I was frightened. The end left me wanting a bit more. After so much of dealing with her obsession, I wanted that to rear its ugly head in the final scene to tie in with the rest of the book. I wasn't sure how I wanted the story to end, it teetered on the edge of a few different directions then BAM... *gasp* Overall I really liked it! Can't wait to read more of her work.
