★ SYNOPSIS ★
A tattoo gets them in trouble… He will get them out.
After years of cultivating an undercover identity, Brody West is finally off the case and free to live a life of his own. All that time spent in the company of criminals and killers left him a little jaded… and with an identity crisis. He isn’t sure who he is anymore, or who he wants to be.
To give him time to think, he takes a few days off to go fishing. On his way out of town, he makes a routine stop at the bank and finds himself flirting with the girl behind the counter.
But his flirtation is cut short when criminals burst into the bank and shoot her right before his eyes.
In attempt to administer first aid, Brody reveals a tattoo on his upper arm. A mark that will drag him and the girl into the kind of situation he was trying to get away from. But he can’t walk away because he’s the only thing capable of keeping Taylor alive and bringing down the guys who shot her—guys who are seriously dangerous.

★ MY REVIEW ★
Ever want a day off to just do nothing? Well, for the first time in a very long time, that is what undercover cop, Brody, our hero of Tattoo by Cambria Herbert, has one of those. A day to do nothing. He decides to go fishing but on the way out of town, swings by the bank. The bank that just-so happens to get robbed while he’s in it. Talk about a series of unfortunate events.
This book is fast, it picks up right from the get-go. You have no lulling moments, you just have a lot of action where you get completely sucked in and just keep flipping pages! You meet our heroine, Taylor, when she’s helping Brody at the bank. They have chemistry right off the bat, flirting over the teller counter. So when the bank gets robbed and Taylor gets shot, what is a good guy like Brody to do? He helps her, of course! In the process however, he reveals a tattoo that makes everything go from unfortunate to disastrous.
A bit of background, since you can read most of what I said in the synopsis. You actually meet Brody for the first time in Tipsy, if you’ve read it. He’s an undercover cop that helps the hero of that book. That doesn’t mean that Tattoo isn’t a standalone, it is! In fact, all the books in the Take It Off series are standalones, some of them just link but without having to read the other ones to do it.
Brody and Taylor have to figure out how to get out of the situation they are in. The writing here is fantastic, hot, and will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. If you’re wondering, yes, there is an HEA and no cliffhanger here!! As I said before, standalone! It is also written from an alternating first person POV. This is one of those books I devoured in under a three hour mark!!
A full five stars and a definite recommendation for Tattoo! In fact, if you loved Text, you will love Tattoo!!
