It's been six months since Ashlyn Daniels was kicked out of her home. Six months since she stood up to her abusive stepfather and got a busted rib—and seeing all her things set ablaze in a backyard bonfire—for her trouble. Never going back. She doesn't need trouble...especially if trouble is tattoo artist Lane Garrett, who's six-feet-plus of tattooed hotness and a complete ass.
Lane has spent the last decade fighting to support his family. To protect them. There's no room for romance, even with a fragile (yet amusingly feisty) stunner...even if she somehow manages to invade his world and his heart.
But while some secrets are as visible as ink on the skin, others must remain hidden at all costs...
I enjoyed this book a lot! I've only read like, one other book by Cole Gibsen, but I want to read the rest of her books, so it was really great that I was able to read this book! So great, and just more incentive to read the others!
I knew from the synopsis that this would be a book that would push some of my buttons-a stepfather who would break a stepchild's bones, burn their stuff, and kick them out of the house? Definitely not fair. I like fair, and fixing things, and I can't, I just have to read as they fix things themselves!
The little details were the ones that really made this book special. I enjoyed reading about the dog that Ashlyn rescued, even though she didn't have the best (or really any) living accommodations, she still cared for the dog, which spoke to what kind of person she was.
Really enjoyed the ending, and how things came together, which I know I write a lot, but it's true in a lot of books that I read, that things that were brought up in the book, were wrapped up in the book, talking only about stand alones. This book did that, and the way that it did that, was just awesome!
Yeah, I really enjoyed reading Ashlyn and Lane's story, it was really fantastic!
