With her fine arts degree achieved, Chloe Hollyoak begins her dream job in her hometown as a tattoo apprentice. Life is sweet, until the unimaginable happens, leaving Chloe and her two sisters alone and devastated.
In her loss, life spirals out of control, made even worse when she’s then pursued by Blade, a biker intent on owning Chloe. Running scared and with nowhere to turn, Timmy, the tall, dark and freaking perfect stranger rescues her.
Protective, possessive and dominant, Timmy tries to resist the much younger Chloe. But Timmy is fighting his own demons.
Can they navigate their way through the storm to find calm waters, or will past secrets, Blade or Timmy’s own insecurities destroy their chances?
Wow! This book starts out with a bang…literally. I was drawn in by the quick wit and sharp scenes with a gasp.
Chloe is a hard-headed young woman who knows what she wants and won’t stop until she gets it, but there is a certain vulnerability – nay, a naivety – when it comes to that. Her love of art has drawn her to become an apprentice tattooist in the shop Ink’d Up but not everyone is happy about it.
Timmy has a past. One he would rather not subject sweet and innocent Chloe to but he’s unable to stay away especially when she’s threatened by a dangerous man. Tensions are high between the two.
I really enjoyed this book and have rated it five stars. The characters and their personalities are well described and make you root for them. The storyline is fast paced and keeps the reader on the edge of their seats.
Will they follow their hearts and succumb to their desires?
By day Ann Grech lives in the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. With her quirky glasses and shiny leather briefcase, she has the librarian look nailed. All laced up tight in her pencil skirts and killer heels, her students can only fantasize about what she gets up to in her spare time. If only they could see those tattoos! Oh, and those notepads of story ideas tucked away in odd places that would be sure to have them fanning themselves!
By night she’s a wife and mum and a purveyor of saucy stories that are filled with lust, raunchy scenes and ultimately love. Ann’s an avid reader of anything sexy and firmly believes in the motto ‘leave mummy alone, she’s reading or writing.’ Because of that, she is pretty hopeless when it comes to getting dinner on the table on time or cleaning the house.
