 Well it is Saturday and I am up and still trying to caffeinate myself . Didn't get much sleep last night cause I needed to get this book read . HAUNTED  by R.L Merrill .

                           BOOK BLURB 

Ink and art are in Jaylene Charles' blood. When her overbearing father died unexpectedly, Jaylene quit her internship with a prominent Berkeley therapist and followed her heart to New Orleans. Finding kindred spirits there, she got back to her tattooing roots and realized her dream of owning her own tattoo shop. Jaylene had everything she thought she wanted when five tattooed, pierced, and broken-hearted rock n’ roll boys challenged her to put her skills, and her heart, to the test.

Maggie’s Bones were Metal’s next big thing when tragedy struck, leaving them devastated and at each others' throats. Their label demanded a follow-up to their latest insanely successful album, and they were running out of time. Hiding out in Louisiana to salvage their career, they sought Jaylene’s help. She immediately felt a connection with D, the broken man with the sorrowful eyes and missing smile, but refused to let him in.

Can Jaylene trust that D's feelings are more than gratitude? Can the man with the sad eyes make her accept that sometimes love really can cure the haunted?


                      MY REVIEW 
   Welcome to New Orleans a place of magic , music and great food . Jaylene runs her own tattoo parlour after well lets say running away after her father died. Along with her best friend Mackenzie she is making a good living for herself . She is a gifted artist and when five sexy tattooed men walk into her ship and her life is turned upside down . When she is paid to help the five men from MAGGIES BONES  have to work and play and get over some pain that is in their hearts . D has taken her heart and she has taken his . Will they be able to work through the pain of their pasts and come to be the loves that they want for each other . 
   Oh my god the characters in this book are so well written and complex . Jaylene is a sweet but tough woman who has been through so much but has come out the other side stronger . But like all woman she really doesn't think that she is good enough for a man like Devon could love her .  I truly loved her and the way she was , kind and sweet but tough as nails .  Mackenzie is her best friend and man she is a hoot to read . She is the total opposite of Jaylene. She is out going and a flirt but deep down she is just like Jaylene a sweet sensitive girl . 
  Now lets talk the men of Maggie's Bones . Marcus well some days you don't know if you want to kick his butt or hug him to death . He is the front man and is oh so arrogant sometimes but over all he can be a nice guy when he wants to be . Mage is well he is the spiritual one of the group . I really liked him , he was sweet and kind and really treated everyone with respect . Star is like a big kid , he is happy about everything and you just want to hug him and hang with him . He is a sweet guy that will have you giggling as you read him. Jade is a mystery to us all , he seems to be the quiet one but when push comes to shove he will be there for you .  Now for the man that stole Jaylene's heart . Devon , wow what can you say about this man . He is tall , sexy as sin , you really want to climb him like a spider monkey . Add brooding and you got the makings of a sex god . As you watch him and Jaylene 's relationship grow we see more to him . He sometimes feels like he is a insecure boy looking for the place to call home . There were moments when you just wanted to wrap him up in a warm blanket and hold him tight . You will fall in love with him trust me . 
    When I sat down to read this book I wasn't expecting the story I was going to get . I was honestly thinking ok another rocker book with groupies and misunderstandings . Boy was I wrong , I was hooked by the second chapter . The story is well written and has twists and turns that will have you turning pages trying to know more about all the characters . There are parts of this book that will have you crying your eyes out and trying to piece your heart back together . The author does a great job in ripping out your heart over and over . But she also pieces it back together for you . There is more to the story then just rockers there is a deeper connection that will come out through out the story , You will feel the pain of each member of the band and what and why they are going through the pain . You will love and hate each character through out the story . So if you want a great story with complicated characters this is the book for you , Check it out you wont be disappointed .
