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?



(Reviewed by Cathy Stansell of Rochelle’s Reviews)

This is a great second chance romance book. It is just so sweet. I love the way JD Hawkin’s can write a mans POV but has NO problem with giving you a woman’s POV. I love HEA’s so this book did not disappoint me at all.

This book is about Teo and Ash. They were high school sweethearts but no one knew, it was a secret relationship. Teo basically came from the wrong side of town. He up and leaves town without even telling Ash. She stumbles into a tattoo shop for an appointment that took months to receive. There she is face to face with Teo the man that broke her heart 7 years ago. She is going to get answers from him about why he did this, even if he doesn’t want an answer.

Ash is a sweet girl who doesn’t expect something for nothing. Even though her father wants to take care of her. She wants to be an independent woman and take care of herself.

Teo has tried to run from his father’s past. He wants no one to think he is anything like his father. He is trying to forget the only one person he was in love with. He wants to prove to Ash that he is worth it.

This book is full of funny characters, but I also came across some characters that I wanted to punch in the nose. I loved the hot scenes in this book. I also love books about tattoo’s and motorcycles and of course hot men. This book is a quick read but a good read.

Thanks JD Hawkins for another great book. I look forward to reading the next one.




“You want something to drink?” she calls from some other room.
“Sure. Something strong.”
“Vodka ok?”
I pace around the room a little, lust still pumping me full of adrenaline, taking in the details, stopping to study a Basquiat print above a bookcase. Flashbacks of conversations we had in her bed rushing through my mind, until she clinks some glasses behind me and I turn around.
“Here you go,” she says, handing me the glass.
I take it from her, sip slowly, but my eyes stay on hers—a living work of art even more captivating than what’s on the walls. The alcohol burns, hitting the spot, but I’m intoxicated enough by the room, by the smell, by her. She must sense it, because she breaks my gaze, eyelashes flickering away as she smiles down, but her coyness only ignites the fire building within me.
I put my drink down and throw her on the couch so I can gaze at those lush curves, trace my eyes down the length of that magnificent body.
I trace a finger around her ear, down her neck. She trembles like a leaf under my touch, skin cool with goosebumps. Her breath quickening, hot and heavy.
I climb on top of her and we devour each other’s mouths as I tug her pants off and she pulls her shirt over her head. We roll around on the couch, her hands squeezing my cock, my mouth sucking each nipple until her breath shudders, her fingers clawing down my back. I need to taste her.
I pull away, enjoying how she hisses with unresolved desire.
“Why are you stopping?” she asks, her voice tinged with desperation.
I growl, low and firm, “I’m not. I’m going to eat you.”
