Review: Drawn Together by Lauren Dane

Tattoo artist Raven Smith is blunt and hard, broken and jaded, dark and beautiful. While she doesn't hide her painful past, she does keep a wall around her heart. She's free sexually—but no one gets to the real Raven beneath the prickly exterior.

With a voice like smoke, Jonah Warner is a smooth-talking, highly successful attorney, with a body that should never be hidden by a suit. He's the kind of man who never takes no for an answer and always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Raven. She's a survivor, and he finds that incredibly alluring.

Jonah gets under her skin in a way Raven has never experienced. He makes her break all her rules—including her no-monogamy rule.

But when a figure from Raven's past shows up at the tattoo parlor and drops a bomb into her life, their relationship will face the ultimate challenge.

Raven has flitted in and out of the Brown Siblings series.  She is one of my favorite secondary characters, so I was glad she was finally getting her happily ever after.  As with all of Ms. Dane's books in the Brown Siblings and the Delicious series, I just can't seem to put it down, so Drawn Together was finished quicker than I wanted it to be.   

The one aspect I didn't like was the use of BDSM in Drawn Together.  I realize it's a popular trope to add to erotic romances nowadays, but I thought it took away some of the passion I expected Raven to have.  She's so withdrawn and closemouthed about her life -- Erin makes a point of relaying that throughout the series -- that I wasn't expecting her to be into BDSM. 

Drawn Together was a nice way to tie up both series, and I'm thankful to have had the opportunity to read it and know the Browns and their extended family will be a-okay.
