Tattooed bad boy James Bowen is about to marry the love of his life. Everything would be perfect if it wasn’t for the tiny detail that his bride-to-be is freaking out big time. And trying to hide it from him.

Tate Cooper is losing it. She loves James with all her heart and wants to be married to him; it’s the getting married that’s killing her. Still grieving the loss of her father and brother, Tate just can’t shake her fear and sadness. Add to that the stress of the wedding, and she’s in full emotional meltdown. But James deserves a happy bride, not a high-maintenance, sorrow-filled, guilt-stricken one, and, by God, she’s going to give him that, even if she has to paste on a smile and fake it till she makes it.

James can see through her front, and he doesn’t know whether to be amused or pissed. He understands she’s running scared, her fear of loss making it hard for her to fully commit, but there is no way in hell he’s going to allow this to continue; he’s going to push her to confront her fears until she happily embraces their ever after.

Inked Ever After by Elle Aycart is a novella follow up to another book in the Bowen series. I haven’t read any other book in the series, yet I still thoroughly enjoyed this story. I definitely related to Tate Cooper and her nerves and anxiety leading up to her wedding.

Tate and James love each other very much, and I found it refreshing to read a story with an already established relationship. Watching James try and get Tate to open up about what she’s going through as the wedding approaches was a real treat. Especially since Tate has some very creative ways of avoiding talking about her issues.

There are some majorly hot scenes in this book. Tate and James are very creative in their lovemaking and the scenes are very well written. There is a lot of emotions in this story and I felt for the characters right along with them.

I definitely recommend this story and I myself will be going back and reading more in the series.
