Tattooed Dots by Kimberly Knight Blog Tour

Easton Crawford put his modeling career and good looks before his marriage until it was over. 

Years later, he is finally learning how to be the father his daughter needed him to be. He’s not looking for a new mom for his daughter—just nightly casual hook-ups. When his best friend, Avery, convinces him that a good way to meet a lot of single women is to go on a single’s cruise, Easton finds more than just a hook-up when he meets a fellow cruiser, Brooke.

Brooke Bradley has taken care of her younger sister, Bailee, for most of their lives. While their mother was enjoying not being a mother, Brooke became the adult in the household at thirteen. She had always taken care of the people in her life, especially her boyfriend, Jared. If it wasn’t for Brooke, Jared wouldn’t know how to function throughout the day.

When Brooke’s best friend, Nicole, gives her a gift of going on a cruise without telling her that it’s a single’s cruise, will Brooke find someone willing to be her constant and finally leave Jared? 

Brooke and Easton learn that people are brought into their lives for many reasons. Over time, they find out what those reasons are. Some are to be a temporary acquaintance while others are there for life. 

What will Easton do when he meets Brooke and realizes that she is someone that is meant to be in his life forever, especially after Brooke has an unexpected surgery and Easton is scared of losing her forever?

Kimberly Knight has just moved from the Bay Area in California to the mountains near a lake with her loving husband and spoiled cat, Precious. In her spare time, she enjoys watching her favorite reality TV shows, playing co-ed slow pitch softball in a few local leagues,rooting 
for her SF Giants and San Jose Sharks and playing computer games like World of Warcraft with Audrey Harte and online poker. Now that she is near a lake, she plans on working on her tan and doing more outdoor stuff like...watching hot guys ski. However, the bulk of her time is dedicated to writing and reading Romance and Erotic fiction.

Sometimes it is so hard to get into a book. Sometimes they feel so generic that they all seem to run together. This book is different. Well maybe not all of it but enough that it kept my intrigue. I have read many books about single parents, but not like this book. 

Easton is a single father, his daughter is 10 and the light in his world. A tragic accident leaves him to be a single parent. At first, I was like this dude is such a douche. I couldn't even believe it. The further I read the more I understood. It wasn't easy for this guy and life isn't always fair, or apologizes for the destruction and life altering changes it leaves in its wake. Easton does what he feels is best for himself and his daughter. His BFF Avery moves to New York to be closer to him and Easton's daughter Cheyenne. I liked the friendship between these two and I loved how Avery surprises Easton into the singles cruise. 

Brooke is in a relationship with a lazy good for nothing moron named Jared. Okay to be fair I didn't get to much background on the dude but yeah he did a lot of dick head moves that had me scratching my head and wondering why the hell Brooke was still with him. Now I had no probs with him playing x-box, shoot I would have jumped in and played. No, what got me was his lack of enthusiasm for the relationship. It sucks when men don't put their lady first. Anywho Brooke has a BFF Nicole who gets them tickets for a cruise, a singles cruise. Which had me laughing since Brooke is in a relationship. 

Brooke and Easton's worlds collide and has them both questioning their lives and what they thought was good. Now they have to decide if life is throwing them yet another curve ball or if this is true love. I enjoyed this book and I have to say that this is Kimberly's best book to date. I enjoyed both protagonists as well as the secondary characters. They all brought the story together. Brooke, had me laughing in certain parts that even now thinking about it brings a smile to my face. 

I love reading books that make me think it will go one way and then surprises me and takes me into a whole different direction. That is what this book did for me. 

I gave this book
4/5 hearts
