Check out my review for: Tattoo Thief (Tattoo Thief #1)

NOTE: This is a "New Adult" novel. Due to mature content this title is recommended for ages 17+

Synopsis: Stella Ramsey always says bad boys can’t break your heart. They don’t call, don’t cuddle and don’t send flowers—but what do you expect? For Stella, no strings means no regrets.

When the biggest story of her fledgling career as a music journalist nearly ruins her relationship with her best friend, Stella has one chance to redeem herself. Tyler Walsh could be that chance.

Stella promises the bassist for the rock band Tattoo Thief anything in exchange for behind-the-scenes access. But Tyler doesn’t want anything. He wants everything—and that’s more than Stella is prepared to give.

When Tyler’s explosive secret thrusts Stella into the media spotlight, she must choose between the selling the story and telling the truth—and exposing the truth about herself as well.

Tyler & Stella (Tattoo Thief #2) is a sizzling story of lust, lies, and sacrifice, revealing how much love can forgive.

Review: 5 Stars - Tyler & Stella is the second book in the Tattoo Thief series by author Heidi Joy Tretheway. Each title in the series follows a member from the rock band Tattoo Thief and this time around it focuses on Bass player Tyler Ramsey and music journalist Stella, both characters we met in the first title.

So, I’m sure most of you are aware of the fact that I LOVED the first book and as you can see from my star rating I LOVED this one too! The peek that we were given into who Tyler and Stella was nothing prior to this title, the more I read this book and the more these two characters were uncovered, I realized that I knew nothing about this pair.

Tyler is a bad boy and as it states in the synopsis he has his own fair share of secrets. Some doozys that’s for sure! I didn’t see any of them coming and I had some pretty huge ah-ha moments during their story. However who he turned out to be underneath it all I might not have seen coming but I so love this guy like whoa!

Now for Stella, she didn’t have much of an effect on me other than wanting to smack her until later in the story. She had a key part in the previous installment that left this reader a bit on the angry side, it was for a huge wrong that she was the center of regarding her best friend Beryl and singer of Tattoo Thief Gavin. By the end of the first book we were left with a bit of a mystery, not quite a cliffhanger but there was a moment that you knew something big was about to happen for Stella and yeah, it sure does!

These two characters are due for some changes and breaks and I often wondered if either of them would ever get one.

My heart caught in my chest one moment and wanted to break the next. Then I’d be swooning and end up wanting to wring someone’s neck minutes later, which makes it easy to say that Heidi writes more than just stories about bad boys and rock stars. She writes about her set of famous characters/ people behind the stage and glamour and gives them a life other than what their public sees. This makes them feel more like real people the more you read.

I love Heidi’s writing, stories and characters. Getting lost within the pages of her books is easy and before you realize it you’ve been drawn in. I’m a huge fan of hers from the first book and now with the second I can’t wait to read the third so I hope she writes faster because I can’t wait to have an in-depth meeting with the next Tattoo Thief band member to receive his own book – Jayce.

I would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a story/series about a rock star bad boy with some bumps and bruises from his past. To anyone who loves a well written story that you can get lost in and a story that’ll have your emotions running all over the place. I’d tell you to look no further and start with Tattoo Thief before reading Tyler & Stella’s story because while these two are stand alone titles they are about one huge rock band and all the characters are intertwined with each other. I know you’ll love these titles too, happy reading!
