First things first, Happy 7th Anniversary to Long and Short Reviews! May this year be your luckiest yet! Anniversary bashes like this one call for serious celebrating and what’s a great way to mark a special occasion? If your mind is in the same smexy place as mine, you said getting a tattoo and then followed that up with the image of bare skin wearing nothing but ink. That’s one reason I love writing about rock stars, picturing and then sprinkling my heroes with their body art makes me a happy girl!

Now I know getting a tattoo can be done year round but what better time to commit than the summer months? After all, you’re gonna want to show it off, right and we don’t want gobs of clothes getting in the way.

So what do you say we set up a virtual tat parlor of sorts today on the Long and Short blog? As with all things pretend, I give you permission to be fearless! Things we should discuss:

1) Do you currently have a tattoo? Tell us more about it!
2) Do you have any rules about getting permanently inked?
3) Haven’t made that commitment yet but want to? What is your dream tattoo?
4) Whose tattooed body, fictional or live and in person, do you admire most?

carlene Depeche Mode Tattoo (2)I’ll start things off. I currently have two tattoos. My favorite pays homage to my favorite band, Depeche Mode, who also inspired the Sin Pointe Series. It’s their red Violator rose with their name written in my hand writing flowing across the stem. I used to have a rule that I had to like something for twenty years before I tattooed it on my body which was a great rule for when I was way younger. Now I trust myself well enough to know when it’s right. My favorite tattooed body is the fictional hero, Acheron, from Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series. Love that his demon comes to life when she leaps off his body. Real life admiration goes to Spartacus star, Andy Whitfield, who in his last days before passing, inked “Be Here Now” on the inside of his forearm and to Rihanna for her “Shhh” finger tattoo. And straight up sexy, mouth-watering type of tat love? Whoever that hottie model is on the cover of Kylie Scott’s Lick. (wink)

All right friends, tag … you’re it!

carlene touchsinfree1m (2)Lonerby guitarist Luke Willoughby and his band are under tight scrutiny since a press conference was ruined by a band member’s sudden vomiting attack. They’ve been suspended from the Sin Pointe tour and Luke fears they’ve blown it for good. The last thing he expects is the cute management spy sent to observe him.

No-nonsense Sarrie Walker knows exactly what she’s there to do, and makes no secret of it. Luke is impressed—and powerfully attracted to Sarrie’s strong and sexy innocence. When they end up stuck together in close quarters, Sarrie becomes dangerously irresistible—and very much off-limits. Does she hold Luke’s second chance? And if he gives in to her powerful allure, what happens to his heart?

About the Author: Carlene Love Flores is a fan of the stars (especially Orion), music (especially Depeche Mode), and her traveling family (no favorites-she loves them all). These inspire her intimate romance stories. If she could touch someone’s heart with writing the way others have for her, she’d say there never lived a luckier girl.
