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?

My thoughts

When I first picked up this book I thought this was just going to be a short, easy read about a boy and a girl and a lot of angst and unresolved issues… boy was I wrong.

As soon as I started reading, I knew I was going to read something special.
This story is about two people (Teo & Ash) who were in love at a young age.
Who fought against the odds because of who they were and where they came from.
They hid their love, and their relationship from everybody because it was precious, real and raw and nobody would ever understand how two people from totally different backgrounds could ever be perfect for one another.
The night they were going to let everyone know the truth about their relationship, a tragic event happens that changes their future together.

Fast forward to seven years later…
Teo and Ash are shocked to see one another again after so many years.
Even after all that’s happened, it’s undeniable that the chemistry and passion is still the same.

Deep down they know that each other is the only true one for them, but is it too late?
Has too much time past, and how do you forgive someone who broke your heart so bad that it’s still broken?

This is a wonderful journey of forgiveness, redemption, second chances and love.
I was cheering for this couple right until the very end, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Great writing.
Great characters.
The chemistry and passion between the protagonists was off the charts.
