An Alisa Review: One Too Many (Mystic Tattoos #1) by Bailey Bradford

Rating:  3 stars out of 5


one-too-manyDon’t discount the mystic powers in the world…


Casey has spent most of his adult life building a successful business. His mother has been on him to settle down with a good man. Casey would, but he hasn’t had time to look for one. On his fortieth birthday, he goes out with friends and gets drunk—and has one too many.


When he wakes up in the morning, there’s a sexy, strange man in his home and a new, kind of painful tattoo on Casey’s chest. He doesn’t remember what happened the night before, but it doesn’t take him long to realize that the stranger, Ed, is someone he wants to get to know much better.


Now, if the fates and stars and all that mystical stuff will align, Casey and Ed might have their Happily Ever After, with the help of a mysterious tattoo artist and a vanishing tattoo shop.


This story was an interesting concept and turned out to be one that I liked.  Ed was Casey’s Uber ride home after his fortieth birthday celebration with friends.  Casey doesn’t remember much of the night, but has a permanent reminder in the form of a tattoo on his chest and the opportunity to have something meaningful with Ed.


In this story we see both characters’ points of view which helps understand what they are feeling and thinking.  Casey has basically been a workaholic for the last decade to get his business going, but he sees an opportunity with Ed that may make him change his ways.  Ed is afraid to push too far, but knows what he wants.  The genie that initially and finally brings them together is interesting.  I kinda wish there would have been a bit more of the story for him and how the characters really grew their relationship.


The cover art is nice and catches your eye.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
