  • Alana ~ The Book Pimp

    Let me just say: Hot, Hot, Hot. Innocent, virginal YA this is not!I give it 4½♥'s I'm showing a full 5, but I'm a little particular about giving 5 stars- it was close. Emotionally, it's a YA story (and also technically since the main female protagonist is in high school) but from the steam factor- my, oh, my! It's racier than many adult books. "You're just a regular aren't you,""I nearly died when I saw the periodic table sitting in front of me. It was my arch enemy."Love me some tattooed, p [...]

It’s not vampires though.Page Turner: Yes.Series Cont.? Yes. RecommendYesBook Boyfriend: SladeSUMMARY (50 words or less)First off, this YA book rivals content description of some adult books so be warned. This book is not for the faint of heart. With that said, I still think for the most part what happens [...]

    Once I started reading Ink, I didn't want to stop reading!! It's that good!!After her mom and dad get a divorce, Hope decides she's going to move with her dad and twin brothers to Cherry, California. Soon after she arrives she goes to a concert in the park and meets Hottie McHottertan, Slade. He has piercings and tattoos, which I love! Anyway, he saves her from getting trampled and walks her home. Things in Cherry should be great-Hope lives right on the beach, she's goes to a performing arts sch [...]

    Four and a half star to be precise !!!! “I want you, too,” Slade whispered in my ear, holding my thighs tightly in his grip. His intensity took my breath away as he drove himself deep inside of me, the motion of his body against mine bringing me to climax in seconds. I squeezed my thighs together, pinning him in place, bringing him to a halt. Holy moly thats hot !!! Actually theres so much more thats hot !!! *cant think straight * Mumbles"God I need to stop acting like this .*clears throat*H [...]

  • Liz at Fictional Candy

    This really was a fantastic read. I was captured right from the beginning, and found myself staying up late and getting up early so I could read more. The book starts off with Hope and some of her family moving out to Cherry, CA. They are a family divided, and her paternal grandmother lives out west, so they decide to leave GA. They aren’t rich, but they are definitely moving to a wealthy area. Hope, her dad, and two of her brothers (Eliot and Easton – twins) pack up the van and are on their [...]

  • Kara-karina

    I apologise to the author as it took me much longer than anticipated to review this book. I think one of the main reasons for this is that despite compelling writing, try as I might I just couldn't like the main characters.First of all, this is 18+ mature YA. There is plenty of sex and violence. I was taken aback by it, although the author did give a fair warning about the contents of the book.Hope moves into Cherry, CA with her alcoholic father and younger twin-brothers leaving her friends and [...]

  • Marie

    This book at first was quite good. It drew me in nicely and was going ok.But then as it went on everything seemed to drag on and I grew bored and tired with it. It didn't really begin to pick up again until right at the end. It took a great effort to not just stop reading it, I wouldn't recommend it being completely honest because I did find it uninteresting and a waste of time. It was good at the start and end but it just took yo long to get there. The whole entire middle part of this book seem [...]

  • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

    The GoodOnce I started reading this book I could barely put it down. It has romance, heartbreak, nail-biting moments, and mystery. Every character had their own personalities and own agendas. Hood has created a world that's both magical and nerve wracking, for evil is lurking in Cherry and Hope can't always come out unscathed. But it's the continuous guessing game on who Hope can trust that really thrilled me. Can she trust Slade, the guy with a bad reputation, who sings in a band, who has tatto [...]

  • Shy The WidowMaker

    Where do I begin? Ink is the first book I have read by Holly Hood and now I must read all her other books. Ink has it all suspense,romance, mystery and paranormal aspects.Hope was a normal teenager moving to a new area and she meets Slade. Where do I begin with Slade? He is the exact image in my head of a bad boy. I don't think there would have been anyway for Hope to not have fallen under Slade's spell. Slade was such a bad boy but still so sweet to Hope. It was no surprise to learn there was s [...]

  • Holly Hood

    Review posted at Sinfully Delicious Book ReviewsI have mixed feelings about this book. It's a pretty sexy YA with some very dark themes included. That isn't my reservation though.We have Hope, who along with her dad and twin brothers, has moved to a town called Cherry, CA. She's 17 and starting school soon at an academy for the arts. She loves music: dancing, singing. So what does she do on her first night in town? Follows the group of people she sees on the beach going to a rock concert in the [...]

  • Elsa Carrion

    Loved him, Loved him, I Loved him! (Slade)Another original plot and story, great characters, crazy characters, and I don't know what to think characters, with a little bit of witches, It was amazing!Can never have too much of a bad boy and Slade is the man. When Hope’s parents hit Splits Ville, she decides to follow her dad and they ended up in Cherry California. Away from her BFF she is new to this town with only her eccentric cougar grandmother to help her settle in and introduce her around [...]

  • MirvanEreon

    To be honest, I do not really like reading books that are classified as YA. I am already 21 years and I pride myself in reading adult books. I though Ink would be just another YA novel but then, I was so wrong. I started this book yesterday afternoon and by now I am finished with it and I am excited to wrote a review about it.I love it! I really enjoyed the book. The characters are very interesting and Slade is one hot guy I would want to play with. Hahaha! The lip ring! This book reminded me a [...]

  • Skye Turner

    Young adult. I think not. The sex factor is smoking hot! I love bad boys. I love piercings and tattoos on bad boys. I love supernatural, so with Ink what's NOT to love!?!?Slade bad boy name. Super sexy, "good*ish" bad boy. It's very hard not to get a little hot and bothered. Slade in a word HOT. Hope sweet name, but kind of bad ass girl, so you have to love her. I loved this book and the only reason it took me 2 days to finish is because we were wedding shopping and it was Easter. Book 2 just do [...]

  • Jodi Nichols

    I picked this book up on for free and about half way through, I bought book 2 because I was so drawn into this story. I loved it and it was definitely something different! Hope and Slade are awesome characters, and I especially love Karsen! She made me laugh when she was visiting Hope! I know I am going to love this series and can't wait to get through #2!

  • Franjessca

    Let me just say this is the first book in a long time, that really caught my interest and I had a hard time putting it down. The story of it sucked me in from beginning to end. It also even had me dreaming about it. When I got up at 3 am to take care of my baby girl, I had to finish the book before I even decided to fall back asleep. It was my mission to find out what would happen between Hope and Slade. Hope is a girl who has to give up everything in Georgia to go to California with her father [...]

Hope struggles to adjust to what feels like a completely different world. People in this story aren't what they seem, and it is a challenge for Hope to learn who to trust, who to love, and who [...]

  • Julie(Reading By The Beach)

    I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Ink from the author through the group, Making Connections on .Holly Hood has an aptitude in creating original, thrilling worlds with well-developed, unique characters. She puts real life situations into her stories that make them, well, real! Ink is intense, emotional and raw(like many of Hood's books). Ink is a parable about never judging a person by their appearance. Hope meets Slade who is covered in tattoos, has a lip piercing, constantly wears black a [...]

  • A.R. Von

    I cannot believe this book has even 1 negative review. I could not put the book down for a minute! (To each is own I guess). It's my first time reading any of Holly Hood's works and I absolutely love her writing! She is another author out there that has an addictive quality to her writing. She created amazing characters with such a realistic feel that snatches you from the start. It's an exciting, emotional, magical, fun and suspenseful read that keeps you hooked and wanting more!Hope has moved [...]

    3.5 StarsAfter reading the synopsis to this book I figured I would give it a try and I have to say that i enjoyed the book. Hope Zigler is about to experience a whole new side to the world. Born and raised in Georgia, Hope is used to nice and caring people. When her mother and father split up, Hope is California bound with her dad and twin brothers. The people of Cherry CA aren't like the southern sweethearts. They are mean, cruel and have secrets. When the only person that doesn't make Cali so [...]

  • Emily

    There are some books you read that make you remember your teen years fondly. Though mine was never covered with the outstanding magical fantasy that didn’t mean that the moments of some teenage rebellion or what my father thought was didn’t compare. It made me smile and gave me fond memories of times past to pop to the imagination which only helped the story it’s self unfurl and make me turn the pages even so I stayed up all night just to finish it. Though some of the scenes are meant more [...]

  • MoonGlitter

    Ink was one of those books that I just didn't want to walk away from! Hope is 17 years old and her parents are getting a divorce. She decides that someone needs to take care of her father. So, she with him and her twin brothers from Georgia to Cherry California. She leaves behind her home and everything she has ever knowcluding her best friend.Most of the people in Cherry California lead a privileged lifestyle.

  • Jade Goody

    I finished!Ink was a fast paced story about a girl named Hope, she moves from Georgia to California with her dad and twin brothers. From the first couple pages I was wondering what was going to happen. I liked Hope she was a well rounded character. I also have read this authors other series and Hope is a different person compared to Eve. Hope was sweet but had a toughness about her, she was stubborn too. This made the story more interesting.Hopes dad is always drinking and she is dealing with he [...]

  • Jenn

    What's not to like about a man with a lip piercing and tons of tattoos? There's nothing about Slade that isn't likable. He may have deep dark secrets but none of them are terrifying. He falls madly in love with Hope, the new girl in town. Hope has moved to California from Georgia with her father and younger twin brothers. What I liked most about Hope is how real she is. She has some honest to goodness issues and problems which she handles as any teenage girl would. And at 17 going on 18, she han [...]
