One kiss is all it took for Alexis Catori’s world to turn upside down. One kiss with a man she thinks can help her move beyond her past. 

Bo Nantan has one rule when it comes to tattooing: he refuses to ink his friends. Until Alexis asks him to do her work. 

Bo tries to refuse, but decides maybe there is a compromise that will work. Together they discover their compromise is about more than just art, it’s facing the past so they can move on with the future.


I loved the romance, but the plot just didn’t do it for me at times. The fact that the motivation of the majority of the plot was based around Alexis wanting Bo to do her tattoo wasn’t enough for me. The romance and sexual tension between Alexis and Bo is pretty hot.

There was also some really random details that were never fully explained. Like Alexis dances at powwows and it is brought up several times, but nothing actually comes of it.

I also had some issues with pacing. Some things seemed to happen much to fast, while others dragged a bit. Alexis kind of annoyed me. She overreacted to everything – and I understand she was hurt, but sometimes there was a bit too much of the fight and make up. I also was not a fan of the friendship between Sarah and Alexis. While Sarah seemed like a great person, I felt like Alexis used her a bit.

Making His Mark was a book that kept my attention the whole time – I constantly wanted to know what would happen next and how things would turn out. One of my favorite things about the book were the secondary characters – they were all great.

So all in all, Making His Mark was a mix for me. While I enjoyed reading it, there were some issues I had with the plot and pacing throughout. Yet, the romance was good and I quite enjoyed the secondary characters.
