I’m a world famous tattoo artist with a six month waiting list. Everybody’s begging me to put my ink on them. I’m the hottest shit in L.A., and can get any girl I want. So the last thing I expect is for Ash Carter to walk into my shop and blow me off.
I’ve spent the last seven years screwing half the women in the northern hemisphere, but nobody could come close to the girl I left behind. Ash was my world. But in order to protect her, I had to let her go. It was the biggest mistake of my life. And now I’ll do anything to get her back.
It’s been seven years since we last spoke. Seven long years of trying to ignore the memory of her skin, her eyes, her incredible confidence. She is everything I remember. Still stubborn and feisty and sexy as hell. They say you should forgive and forget. But Ash can never forget what I did. And I can never forgive myself.
She’s left a permanent mark on my heart.
But even if she takes me back, will we be able to overcome the past? Will we be able to move forward towards our future?
Do you love a misunderstood bad boy with a good heart? How about a strong woman who goes after what she really wants? Maybe sexy with a side of tattoos paired with a dash of second chance romance? If you answered yes to even one of those questions, then you’re going to love this book by J.D. Hawkins. You’ll fall in love with Teo as he gets the opportunity to set things rights, things that went so badly awry with Ash all those years ago. It’s a chance to take young love and make it so much more.
The chemistry is great between these two, and I love that Hawkins give Teo so much soul. He didn’t let the characters fall victim to the stereotype of bad boy woos good girl; these two had a true connection at a young age, one which transcends the years.
Hawkins’s writing style is very smooth and his characters have a lot of depth – a signature style which comes through in this book. He writes characters who have a genuine passion for whatever they are doing. It certainly makes the reading more entertaining and allows you to really connect with the story.
Two thumbs up and 4.5 stars!
