Pretty in Ink

Aubrey Jensen finds growing up means making choices to please herself, even if it puts her in conflict with her family. When opportunity knocks (boots!) in the form of a sexy, inked bad-boy she can’t believe her luck.

Aubrey is all curves and sweet sass – a combination Garrett Chase, the owner of her regular hangout, is dying to get his hands on. She’s exactly what he wants in life – so why is everything suddenly going to hell?

Sometimes getting what you want doesn’t give you what you need. To compromise or demand your worth? To turn away or bare your scars? Decisions, decisions….

 Excerpt 

“I could help you with that.” He glanced up at her words, and his knees turned weak at the blatant need in her eyes, which were fixed on his crotch.

“Christ, Aubrey, don’t tempt me.” He gave a pained groan, and was rewarded with a rolling laugh. Cupping her cheek, he stroked a few wayward curls behind Aubrey’s ear. “Are you okay, darling?”

“I’m more than okay.” She pressed her lips into his palm. Raising her hand to grip his wrist, she leaned into his hold. “Things got ugly for a while back there, but it doesn’t matter now.” Her limpid gaze fixed on him and warmth spread through his chest.

“Can I see you tomorrow?” He hadn’t meant to blurt it out like that, but the urgency to bind her to him, make her a fixture in his life forced his hand. The way she pulled back, an expression of surprise on her face, made him frown. Did she seriously think all he wanted was a quick fumble in the dark? He stroked her cheek softly, before taking a firm grip on her chin. “This is just the start, Aubrey. I’m not the kind of guy who messes around with women in shady corners. Especially not in my place.” The glow of warmth in her eyes at his words sent an unfamiliar sensation fluttering in his gut. Holy hell, she’s adorable.

A sweet smile curling her lips, she reached for the pen in his shirt pocket. Using the lightest touch, she unbuttoned the cuff on his sleeve and slowly rolled it back. He held his breath, as she uncovered the solid black lines of his tattoo, highlighted with shades of red and orange. The stylized flames curled around both his arms from the wrist, stretched across his shoulders and down his back. He wanted to strip the material from his body and display his ink for her. Aubrey would never have struck him as the kind of woman to appreciate it, but he remembered the gleam in her eye at the bar earlier. It surprised him how much he wanted her to like it, to like him. She traced the pattern on his forearm with delicate fingers, sending arrows of need straight into his aching groin. Yielding to the slight pressure of her hand, he let her twist his arm until she found a free space on the underside of his wrist. She wrote a phone number in clear, bold strokes. “This is my private line. If I’m not there, it will automatically route to my cell.”

He smoothed his sleeve down, taking care not to smudge the drying numbers as he fastened the cuff at his wrist. “I’ll call you tomorrow morning,” he promised. Cupping her face in his hands, he drew her closer, nibbling the swell of her lower lip.
