BOOK REVIEW: Tattoo Killer by A.J. Norris

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 18, 2016
Publisher: Limitless Publishing, LLC

Mikey Hardin is a murderer. At least that’s what his ex-wife wants the police to believe…

A tattoo artist and single father, Mikey becomes a suspect in a series of homicides thanks to an anonymous tip from his ex. The case against him seems straightforward, especially since Mikey is connected to the victims, but police detective Harry Hunter knows finding the psychopath isn’t that simple. The physical evidence doesn’t add up. After Mikey is released and amid the turmoil of his life, he meets Grace Bell, a beautiful divorcee, in a chance encounter.

Mikey is everything that straight-laced Grace isn’t…

Grace is tired of living a rigid existence and wants to break free from the routine of her mundane life. The tattoo artist’s free spirit and charm quickly draw her into his world.

Another woman is found dead, and the killer isn’t finished yet…

Even though he thinks Mikey is innocent, there is a killer in Webster and he’s not stopping until he gets what he wants. Every victim is connected to Mikey, and her father fears Grace will be next.

Oh my gosh, you guys!! By now, you all should know that I'm a HUGE fan of Romantic Suspense novels and well, AJ Norris HOOKED me. From the very beginning I was beyond curious to see how things would unfold in Tattoo Killer! There was murder, mystery, suspense, and a steamy romance so suffice it to say, I was a goner!

Mikey...loved him! He was flawed, down to earth, sexy, and beyond patient! I mean, poor guy—someone was truly out to make his life a living hell plus, let's not even discuss his ex-wife, who you will end up hating. Trust me.

Grace needed a man like Mikey in her life. She needed someone to spice it up, and man, did he ever! Their relationship was hot, but it had me nervous because they were both keeping secrets from each other and I just knew that would end badly. It was a ticking time-bomb.

The murders happening around town added a great mystery/suspense feel to the book which at times even gave me the creeps. I think this part of the book was all developed very well. Now, this was not the kind of book where you're trying to guess who the villain is. After a certain time, you know who it is, but it all comes down to catching the killer, whom always seemed to be one step ahead of the game.

Overall, Tattoo Killer was a great Romantic Suspense. A.J. Norris has a gained a brand, new fan here!! I will certainly be checking out her other books!!

A.J. Norris is a romantic suspense and paranormal romance novelist. She began writing as a way to dim down the voices inside her head. She enjoys being able to get inside someone else's head, even a fictional one, and see what they see. Watching how her characters deal with difficult situations or squirm with the uncomfortable ones make the hard work of writing all worth it. She is a movie buff, especially book adaptations, loves watching her son play baseball and communing with other writers. She lives with her family who are extremely tolerant (at least most of the time) of all her late nights behind the computer.
