Book Tour/Review: Dublin Ink by Sienna Blake

Book Details

Format: E-Book, 395 pages
Series: Dublin Ink, Book 1
Publication: May 5, 2022 by SB Publishing
Synopsis: He can’t give in.
Grumpy bad boy tattoo artist, Conor Mac Haol, doesn’t trust anyone. Least of all the new juvie apprenticing at his beloved Dublin Ink as part of her probation.
She is way too pretty and way, way too young.
Coming from a broken home, Aurnia has had to grow up faster than most girls. She doesn’t need anyone telling her what to do.
Least of all Conor, her new (very hot, very muscled, very tattooed and very, very rude) boss who obviously hates her.
But Aurnia’s troubles reminds Conor too much of his dark past. He becomes obsessed with keeping her safe. Keeping her protected.
Even from him.
Especially from him.
Soon sparks and insults turn into broken rules and forbidden moments—until one final mistake seals their fate.

My Thoughts

Rating: ★★★☆☆
I’ve never read anything by this author before, but I did really enjoy her writing style. It was easy to focus on this book despite my problems with it. I’m actually interested in reading some of her other works, just maybe with a little more caution.
I personally found the age-gap to be a little uncomfortable. Typically age-gap romances don’t bother me, but as someone close to Aurnia’s age, the idea of someone Conor’s age being interested in me made me uncomfortable. I feel like what made it so uncomfortable was both characters constantly recognizing how odd the relationship was.
I do think I’d have liked this a lot more if she wasn’t still a teenager, though. The age-gap was really my only problem with the book. Again, the author’s writing style was great! I just personally wasn’t a fan of the relationship itself.
I received a gifted copy of this book via Rockstar Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
