Beau thought Aaron was dead to him… Imagine his surprise when his former lover slinks into his tattoo shop.
Six months ago vampire Beaudelaire Delacourte had it all. As a tattoo artist, he used his special ink and spells to permanently tattoo other immortals and spent countless hours feeding and indulging in BDSM with his human lover, Aaron. Then he asked to turn Aaron so his lover could join him permanently, but Aaron refused, not willing to give up his humanity. Since then, Beau has kept his head down and stayed in his shop, only interacting with the clients who come for his special brand of ink.
When Aaron shows up on his doorstep, half-dead and apologizing, Beau is shocked to learn that his boy was turned at the vampire club they used to frequent by Stephen, another vampire. Not only was Aaron turned, but his chest was torn open, his fangs were broken and he was left in an alley to die. Spurred by the need to see Beau one last time, Aaron has been hiding in an abandoned building until he found the strength to make it to Beau’s shop.
Beau takes in his boy again, promising that Aaron will earn his place back in Beau’s bed, and vowing that he will take revenge on Stephen. Unbeknownst to Beau, Aaron is only the first in a long line of humans who Stephen has created then turned out to fend for themselves. As Beau discovers this is only one of the old rules that Stephen has broken, he and Aaron are drawn into a web of intrigue that can only end in someone’s death.

Reclaiming was certainly a very interesting read. The story starts exactly as how the blurb states. Six months earlier Beau had asked Aaron to allow him to turn him into a vampire, but Aaron had refused. Hiding in an abandoned building until he was strong enough, Aaron show up at Beau’s doorstep in a half-dead, well as half dead as a vampire can be, to apologize. Beau takes Aaron back in and begins to nurse him back to health. As Aaron’s story comes out, he finds Aaron was changed by force, his fangs broken and left for dead by Stephen. What’s worse, Aaron isn’t the only human Stephen has done this to!
What drew me in to want to read this book was the idea of a vampire as a tattoo artist. The combination of vamp and tats is something I have never encountered before and I just had to know how it worked out. Annnnd…I got my questions answered! Beau certainly does do permanent tats on other vamps and the process is a combination of special ink and spells. Aaron being one of the canvases he likes to work on. Tattoos aren’t the only thing he does to Aaron. Can we say piercings! Things are very HAWT between these two as they re-establish their Master/sub relationship. The mystery surrounding Stephen’s actions really had me interested. Throw in a great cast of secondary characters to keep things really moving along at an exciting pace.
Hot sex, great characters, and a dash of intrigue made Reclaiming a very well rounded story. Readers who like their M/M PNRs super-hot and spicy are going to enjoy this book.
