Some words last forever.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 is 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.
