Temporary by Kim Carmichael - Indelibly Marked #2 - 4.5 Stars!!

Temporary by Kim Carmichael
 Book #2 in the Indelibly Marked Series


After a year spent secretly hooking up with his best friend's baby sister, a tattoo artist who believes only ink is permanent must decide if his love is temporary.

In a temporary world only tattoos are permanent…

Content, consistent and calm described Ivan Harlow’s life to a tee. Satisfied with being a artist at the world-famous Permanent Tattoo, playing the role of eternal side-kick, and of course, hooking up with his best friend’s baby sister, his days are predictable and fun, and nothing has to change. With his live story permanently embedded in his skin, he still can’t help but feel anything he dares to love will only be temporary.

All Emily Elliott wants are some big changes in her life. She wants to make it big in the world makeup, needs to show her three big brothers she is all grown up, and dreams of truly being with Ivan, the man she has wanted since she was seven years old.

However, when the fate of the tattoo shop is put into Ivan and Emily’s hands, they must not only work together outside of the bedroom, but face their own personal truths, and figure out what is permanent, what is temporary and where love fits.

Temporary is Book Two in the Indelibly Marked Series that revolves around the lives and loves of the Elliott Family and Permanent Tattoo. Each full-length book can be read as a stand alone, and features its own couple.

My Review
Temporary is book #2 in the Indelibly Marked Series, I absolutely loved Permanent which is book #1 and I have been waiting for this book to release and guess what I’ve managed to get my hands on an ARC in exchange for an honest review so here goes...

Ok so the good bits...

·         Ivan I Love, Love, Love him!!!

·         Emily she is absolutely adorable.

·         The rest of the Elliot Clan it’s such a fab group of characters.

And the not so good bits...

·         I have no idea when we are going to get Carson’s story!!

I vividly remember reading Permanent and thinking that this author is proper sarcastic and that brilliant!!! I’ve been really looking forward to Temporary being release and I have to say I loved it just as much as book #1 in the series.

Both Ivan & Emily are minor characters in book #1 but I still thought they were really warm and engaging personalities.

Temporary is a brilliant example of why series that have large groups of characters work. The reader gets a chance to get to know the new main characters whilst still getting glimpses of their favourites from the previous book.

I liked Ivan & Emily in Permanent but I love them in temporary we really get an insight into both them as characters and individuals but also as them as an almost couple.

I LOVE Ivan he’s all tatted up and should be a bad boy but he’s actually the complete opposite. I don’t think I would be going too far to call him a big ole marshmallow lol.

I know that in the 21st century women are independent and fully capable of surviving without men but I love how caring and protective all of the men in this series are. In my eyes there is nothing sexier than a man who takes good care of his woman.

Ivan really fulfils that role, he’s sexy and possessive but not a control freak and when I picture him in my head he’s bit of a tatted up demi god lol.

Emily is quirky and a bit edgy but I love how warm and loving she is. She’s the girl you would love as your sister or your best friend and I just wanted to give her a big hug.

This series has an amazing family feel to it and I love how the family and friends relationships intermingle and evolve.

Kim Carmichael has a wicked sense of humour and this book had me grinning like a Cheshire cat, I love how she’s witty and sarcastic and her characters all have their own distinct style of banter and humour.

Overall I loved this book; it’s funny, heart-warming and generally just fab 4.5 stars!!
