Marked Series by Elena M Reyes RELEASE DAY BLITZ
For a limited time only, this exclusive box set will include the first three books in the Marked Series, and an exclusive peek inside the final book. That’s right. A steamy scene from the first few chapters of MARKED will be included in this bundle.
Talan Cox wants to mark Maya—with more than his ink. The owner of a prominent tattoo shop, he’s used to being hit on by easy women. Though “easy” is not a word associated with Maya when she comes in to support her friend. Flirtation ensues, but what will it take to break the painted man.

I love tattoos and alpha males and the idea of marking someone! But unfortunately I didn't love The Marked Series.
Talan is hot, but not take charge enough for my liking. He talks the talk, but doesn't walk the walk! It was quite disappointing for the first half of book 1 for him to be the one pushing for things to go slow. It's just not in me to believe that's how an alpha male works!
Maya is a little on the hot/cold side, as well. She is definitely more persistent and not always taking the slow road. But I read these books for an escape, I just needed more backbone from both of these characters.
Once Talan and Maya come together, it's scorching! And actually, that's something that is spot on from the beginning! Their interaction is almost combustible, which is why I needed more from them!!
That feeling of the unnecessary slow burn is the main reason I can only give The Marked Series 3.5 licorice cupcakes. It sounds like a good idea, but leaves a somewhat weird taste in your mouth....
The day Maya Owens walked into his tattoo shop, everything Talan knew changed.
After officially starting a relationship, he is now having trouble managing Maya—a woman who consumes every part of his being and owns his heart. His need to control her and everything around her drives Maya insane, but he has good reason. After all, Janice is still lurking around and she has a vendetta against his Bitty.
In no time Talan wants more, and it’s faster than Maya can handle; things begin to get complicated.
Months of frustration and want take them for a ride neither wanted, but now yearn for. Will they make it through the turbulence? And if so, at what cost?
Every single one of those could be used to describe me. They can tell you my story—my sad past—without a single syllable passing through my lips.
I hate them—those who lied to me. They claimed to love me, but in reality they used me when convenient. My parents. Sister. And now Talan. Loving them has left me empty. Sad.
Not anymore. Screw them. My love has turned to anger…hate. Now, what consumes me is the urge to destroy, to force them to see what they wrecked with their carelessness. My name will never be forgotten. Not after I have my revenge.
His tears will be my ultimate retribution.
