I was kindly given an e-copy of this anthology by Pen and Kink Publishing.
kINKED as the title suggests is an anthology of several different stories all involving tattoos and some kind of erotica or ‘kink.’
I’ve got to say I really enjoyed these little novellas, they had just the right amount of kink and tattoos and I am a lover of both. The tattoo element, is a favourite of mine and anyone that knows me will tell you that if there is a tattooed hot guy in a book, then I’m sold.
These were a mixture of genres too, PNR, sci-fi/fantasy, contemporary romance. and BDSM/erotica.
In reading order the stories are as follows,
Begin Again by Tiffany Michelle Brown
Inkarnate by Mara Malins
The Courier by Danielle Davis
Through Glass A Stranger by Renee Dominick
For The Occasion by Brantwijn Serrah
Sae-ri by Nicole Blackwood
Ink and Ocean by Meredith Dark
Painted Red by Sara Dobie Bauer
Its a total mish-mash of stories but one that will appeal to a lot of readers. I read another anthology by these publishers called Triskaidekaphilia and it was awesome so I knew that this one would be on par if not more.
Some of the stories are very far-fetched and very ‘out there’ but I happened to love that. I liked that it was different, I like different. These stories won’t be for everyone but they will be for someone. Each author brings a new meaning to tattoos and kink, they’re not afraid to step out of the ordinary. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a little quirkiness and difference.
Happy Reading 🙂
