Jed Gentry is doing just fine, thank you very much, running his tattoo studio in Austin, Texas.  So what if people think he’s a bit on the surly side?  He’s been burned by his ex who sticks around to torture him and he lives with a family heartache that he’d rather not talk about.  But he’s got a thriving business, his dream car, and good friends.  Not much to complicate things.  At least, not until she walked in…
Kyle O’Neill has had it with being the sheltered daddy’s girl at the family accounting firm and is ready to spread her wings and fly on her own for the first time.  Unfortunately, it seems she’s about to fall flat on her face when her first and only client is – gulp -- a tattoo artist!  Her country club upbringing certainly hasn’t prepared her for this place or the sizzling attraction her traitorous body feels for the grumpy owner.
But there is a Divine conspiracy at work here pushing these two together.  And they are hell bent on bucking the Heavenly plan all the way.  Luckily, their angel is a true believer and pulls every trick he knows from under his halo to make this a match made in Heaven.
Who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor?

Tattoos, cupids, and bad boys: Shauna Allen delivers one heck of a read.  Fresh, sassy, and witty - she brings a new voice to romance that readers are gonna love!
 New York Times Bestselling Author, Christie Craig

My Review:
Wow so I don't even know where to start with this book...

Jeb Gentry runs a tattoo shop. He loves him job, his car, and his employees well most of them anyway. Not his ex-girlfriend who walks around the shop flirting anything that moves and shoving the fact that Jeb and her used to be in a relationship and that she owns half the business because of it in his face, daily. When a girl comes into his shop looking like one of the most uptight people he's ever seen and asking for Mike one of his workers he's intrigued.

Kyle O' Neill has be contained and controlled her entire life. She's worked hard to get to the top only to be rejected by her father, her boyfriend doesn't know her, and everyone in her family thinks she's playing a game with her life to pass the time as she leaves her fathers firm and sets out on her own. When her ventures lead her to Jeb's tattoo shop she doesn't know what to think of Jeb or his business.

While both parties seem to be annoyed by each others presence there is a reason they met. Micheal is a angel of Heaven and his job is to bring these two people together. Too bad Jeb and Kyle's obstacles of getting together keep becoming more and more complicated. When everything finally seems to be coming together as Jeb invites Kyle to the late for the weekend to relax and work everything seems to be perfect. But when emotions run high and after a freak accident it seems Kyle and Jeb will never be together. It's up to Micheal to pull every trick her has for them to finally overcome the past so they can move on to the future, together.

Kyle is honestly hilarious and so easily relate-able. Most of the book she is unsure of who she is or what she wants from life. Her life has always been planned out for her, and a lot of this book as she sets out on her own she comes to realize who she is and what she wants rather than what everyone else wants for her.

Jeb...well most of the book is a sexy a-hole. He's mocking, crude, and drop dead sexy and I couldn't help but fall in love with him as a character as well. He's had his heart broken and has some major trust issues not only with other people but also himself as well. He is honestly an easily relate able character because I think I can honestly say that after I've been hurt I never want to trust anyone or do to someone what has been to do you. So he struggles a lot with how the past has affected him and while easily relate-able it's also like "COME THE BLEEP ON!?!?!" 

Okay so I love this book. Honestly this book was freaking amazing. I couldn't put it down, even though I was supposed to be studying for a test that I had the next day. Oops. Totally worth it though. Inked by and Angel is hilarious and real. I loved the characters and the entire story was just great. Shauna Allen is an amazing writer and I can not wait to read more of her work. This book is told in both Kyle's and Jeb's P.O.V. along with Micheal's at some points. I honestly hope that EVERYONE picks up a copy of this amazing book and I think it's one that anyone could like.
