"This moving and deeply fulfilling romance marks the launch of a very promising series."—Publishers Weekly, starred review (on New Ink on Life)
Sometimes everything you shouldn't want is exactly what you need.
Tattoo artist Jamie Winston is used to caring for others. Between her assistant manager position at a tattoo parlor, single-parenting her twelve-year-old daughter, and supporting her alcoholic parents, Jamie rarely prioritizes her own needs—unless Sierra Clark is in her chair. The bubbly, younger woman somehow manages to make Jamie feel like the carefree teenager she never got to be, making anything seem possible.
For Sierra, time with Jamie is a much-needed escape. She takes her work as a social worker seriously, but with budget cuts threatening her job, there's a lot riding on the fundraiser she's planning with Jamie. The fact that it means working closely with the sexy, older tattooist is a bonus—a deliciously tempting bonus. Sierra isn't one for relationships, but she's never felt such a strong desire to mix business with pleasure.
Sizzling chemistry quickly erodes Jamie's fears of being too old for Sierra, but navigating a romance with someone who's at such a different stage in life is no easy task. They've each come to rely on themselves more than anyone else, but having a future together will mean letting their guards down, and accepting each other as a safe place to fall.
