The moment she walked into my tattoo shop, I knew there was something special about her. She had a strength in her eyes that left me breathless and just like that, I was hooked.
But the scars she carries run deep.
Even though the connection between us is electric, I can feel her reluctance. Maybe that would be enough to deter other guys but not me. I will do whatever it takes to convince her to let me into her guarded heart.
I once considered myself a confident, intelligent woman. Then, he came into my life. He tore me down every way he could, leaving me a broken shell of who I once was.
Now, I'm free.
I got away and am working hard to pick up my shattered pieces. I know the last thing I need is another man in my life. Yet I never planned on Phoenix West. The ridiculously charming tattoo artist awakens my innermost desires with his sexy smile and easygoing nature. Even so, I can’t risk another heartache… can I?
I want to take a chance on him. I want to let him in. But my past is lurking in the shadows, and it refuses to be ignored.
