Tattooed Hearts by Mika Jolie Review



Being someone's first love is unforgettable. Being their last is immeasurable.

Claire Peters should be on top of the world. She owns the radio waves and has a budding movie career. But her heart longs to be rooted. Ten years ago, she fled Martha’s Vineyard to pursue her dream and to make something of herself. But there’s still a void. After a decade of running, she returns to the island hoping to find her happiness with the man she’s loved all her life.

When a tragic event shatters Dr. Forrest Desvareaux’ well-balanced world, the Vineyard’s hometown good guy discovers everything in his life is based on lies. Angry and betrayed, he turns to Claire – the one woman who has indelibly marked him.

Is it possible to run back to the person who broke you? Forever linked, Forrest and Claire are an unending continuum. But she’s a wildflower and Forrest’s roots run deep on the Vineyard. Can they accept home is not a place but a feeling?



The first word out of my mouth when I saw who the main characters in Tattooed Heart was FINALLY!!!
Claire Peters is back in Martha's Vineyard, she has made it to the pinnacle of her career, but yet she left behind the one person that meant the most to her! Why did she leave? It was because she never felt worthy of his love.
Dr. Forrest Desvareaux loved Claire with all his heart and 10 years ago, when she left him, it hardened him and his heart. But now she is back on the island and he tries to keep away, even though he wants to know why she left him all those years ago. But when she keeps showing up, the heat explodes between them and self-preservation blows out the window.
But then other lies are exposed and it brings back Forrest distrust of Claire and he banishes her from his life again, but this time Claire doesn't run, even though Forrest expects her too! And you are left wondering if Forrest will move past hurts of the past or cling to them like a life line.
Yet another amazing interracial love story by the extremely talented Mika Jolie. As I have said before, I have been waiting for Claire and Forrest's book from the very beginning and I have to say that I am not disappointed in the slightest! Though I will say, Tattooed Hearts brings both joy and sadness. Joy, because it is such a beautiful book, but sadness, because this is the end of the series.
But let’s get down to the basics shall we! The writing is flawless, the plot is great and the characters are simply perfect! Once I picked up this book, I honestly couldn't put it down. It brought out a wide arrange of emotions in me and I truly love it.
I give Tattooed Heart a well-deserved 10 out of 10.
