Publisher's Summary

*This romance novel contains explicit content and is not advised for listeners under 18*

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 13, 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 30th 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?

I’m a sucker for a reformed bad boy...

There are some things I definitely appreciated about the book; first Easton is wonderful with his Daughter. He is active in her life and puts her first. Easton’s parents seem like the best kind of people. Attentive, loving and supportive of their son and grandchild. And they are completely open to accepting Brooke. Nicole and Avery are a bit self indulgent but overall I found them to be an interesting supporting cast to the more serious Brooke and Easton.

I desperately wanted to connect with Brooke and Easton but it didn’t happen for me. There was something about the mix of insta love and naïveté that I would expect from someone in their early 20s that didn’t ring true for people in their early 30s. People who have had adult responsibilities thrust on them at an early age. There was also a scene between Brooke and her loser gamer boyfriend where consent was dubious at best. It really threw me.

Overall I would continue on with the series out of curiosity to see where it goes.

Finding true love

Brooke is in a going nowhere relationship. Easton hasn't found anyone that he can love; besides he has a daughter that needs him. When they meet on a singles cruise the sparks instantly fly. This book deals with many realistic life emotions and reactions. I like the fact that Easton is there to support Brooke. There is also family and friend support, commitment to a child, steamy love scenes, willingness to change, compassion, and love.

The narrators did a good job. I received this Audible book because I asked to review it. I really liked this book. I was happy to find out that there are and will be more books about these characters. I definitely recommend this book.

Good story but one narrator was not for me

I love the storyline that progresses nicely in to HEA.
There’s no unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and good amounts of dialogues.
Well written characters and a great chemistry between the main characters, however I didn’t feel connected to them. That made the experience less enjoyable.
Love scenes was good but maybe because I lacked the connection to the characters it felt stilted.

Narrators:
The male voice was great but the female was too childish so I gritted my teeth over and over.
Both narrators did a good job reading with passion and had clear pronunciation.

Cute second chance love story.

I have to admit that I listened to this audiobook twice. I had a really hard time getting into the narration but listened to the whole book. Yet I wanted to see if maybe I had an easier time if I gave it a second chance, and I’m so happy that I did. I enjoyed it more the second time around.

The story was great, I really didn’t like Easton in the start, but he really redeemed himself with how great a dad he is to Cheyenne. And how great he was even when he knew that he likely had no chance with Brooke when they first met.

Brooke sure had a lot of losers in her life yet is a great friend and has some great friends in her life in the end.

I hope we get another book for Avery and Nicole in the future to see they story more.

I had trouble with the narration but the second time listened to this audiobook, found that it improved. (Maybe this is an eye opener for all of us, it might be our mood at the time of listening or reading a book 📖 🎧) However, I do believe that Eva Eastman must be new and needs more experience in not sounding like she’s reading through the book as if it’s the first time she has read it. Also there were spots where it wasn’t edited properly but still I found the audiobook to be a great time so I would suggest you be open while listening to this but it was a great book.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great story

This is such a great story. I really enjoyed reading this book and when I got the chance to listen to it I jumped at it. It’s a great love story. Regarding the narration, I was a little disappointed by the voice actors but the story was definitely worth it.

Easton💘Brooke! 4.5 Lovely Stars!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tattooed Dots is a delightful, heartfelt story that immediately grabbed my attention and captivated it until the end. The storylines are interesting, realistic and relatable. The characters are well developed. My 1st impression of Easton Crawford was not a good one but does redeem himself when he realizes what he really wants in life. Brooke Bradley’s life is stuck in a rut, she is living with her long term boyfriend who takes her for granted and does not treat her right. Her best friend Nicole takes her on a cruise where they meet Easton and his friend Avery. Avery and Nicole hit it off and wind up hooking right away leaving Brooke and Easton to hang together. They clicked right from the start and soon realize their feelings for each other run deep. I enjoyed their story, I was happy Brooke got rid of her loser boyfriend and found someone who would cherish her, be there for her. I loved how Easton was with his daughter. This is a great story, one of love, friendship, family and of finding oneself. Thank you Kimberly Knight, I hope one day no one will have the need for tattooed dots.

I listened to the Audible Edition, Josh Logan and Eva Eastman do a nice job narrating and telling the story.

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession

I loved this story!!

This was a wonderful “love at first sight” story.
This book had so many surprises and unexpected turns I couldn’t put it down.
From courtroom to the bedroom, it was pretty hot, but it also had charm as well as sadness, this book had it all. I loved the characters.
Regarding the narration, without being familiar with the 2 narrators I want to say they both have great voices and loads of potential but they sound a little inexperienced. I’m not sure if they have been narrating very long but it was a little choppy at times.
That being said, I still enjoyed the book and would recommend it.

Great story

From the prologue to the end of the story, this was a book that I changed my opinion on numerous times. I had a love/hate relationship with Easton, but once Brooke comes into the picture I could not stop listening. My emotions were everywhere. I only wish the narrators fit the story better but overall a very good story.

I don't know how aweful a narrative could be

the female narrator is reading the book like we are kindergartners. it was so painful to listen to how unrealistic the reading was I didn't get past the drunk girls getting home from a night......bowling?? and what about the story itself. when is tge girlfriend, who catches her boyfriend getting a number of another women, o.k. with said boyfriend and only points out that the other women is a skank then says nothing more? why put that story line in the book of your not going to follow a realistic story line. OMG this book is stupid.

It's okay

Moved a little slow but otherwise it was okay. I did finish the book. I'm not sure why I didn't like it, it just seemed to fall a little flat for me.

Loved it

This story is very well narrated with the dual narrators! I absolutely loved listening to them and having the story come to life in my head. It has its steamy moments, but also moments when you want to cry. You will want to start book two shortly after finishing one, but this story does not have a cliffhanger.

Easton and Brooke!

Easton married his high school sweetheart however he wasn’t ready for marriage and was a terrible husband. Just when the divorce was about to become final his wife tragically passed away and he finds himself a single father to their five year old daughter Cheyenne who is the light of his life. Five years later he is still a playboy but he now owns a bar with his best friend Avery and they decide to go on a single’s cruise which is where he meets Brooke.

When Brooke’s irresponsible mother was more interested in her latest man rather than Brooke or her sister she was the one who raised her sister. She has been involved in a relationship with her boyfriend Jared however she is the one who supports them. When her best friend Nicole wants to go on a single’s cruise she convinces and pays for Brooke to come with her.

When Nicole and Avery become close Brooke and Easton start spending time together as well. Brooke was determined to be faithful to her boyfriend but that doesn’t stop her attraction to Easton. For the first time in his life Easton wants to spend more than one night with a woman and that woman is Brooke. When Brooke returns home and her world is turned upside down in more ways than one will Easton be able to convince Brooke that his playboy days are behind him and he can be trusted to be by her side through the good and the bad?

This is an emotional story about love, family and relationships. With the way the book began I wasn’t sure if Easton could redeem himself but over the course of the story he showed the man he truly is. 🎧AudiobookObsession

ummm****

wow. this was a very well written book. But be prepared, Easton is an ***hole at the beginning of the book. Josh Logan was the perfect narrator. He really did it justice. Brooke put up with a lot, and I enjoyed Eva Eastman as the narrator. All in all, it was a very interesting listen. The author really brought a realistic view of an alpha jackrabbit in this story. I like that she somewhat redeemed him, and the story gelled well. THe narrators did a great job.
