He's not supposed to touch and she's got something to prove by being on top...
Jo Johnson has spent ten long months running from a traumatic past that left both physical and mental scars but when Ash takes up a chair at her sister's tattoo studio, the attraction is almost instant. She thinks he might just be what the doctor ordered to help her get over her paralyzing fear of men.
Ash arrives in Australia from the UK for a working holiday. He's going to ink tourists, surf and attempt to remove the knife his ex lodged into his back. He wants a hassle-free workplace and an easy few months. What he gets is a woman who knows how to play dirty and the chance for some no-strings kink.
He's not supposed to touch and she's got something to prove making them combustible behind closed doors but what happens when their pasts are exposed and one of them isn't who they seem? Can they learn to trust, to let down their guards, to love again? Or will Ash leave Australia and a broken Jo behind forever...
Tattoo artist, Jennifer Johnson, did something bad once. For a good reason. Now she hides behind her wide-leg jeans, big smile and cheery attitude. She knows she deserves the injury she got while drink driving, but she doesn’t know how to live with it. Or let another person see her laid bare.
When she’s attacked by a client, the man who saves her offers to make good with private exercise lessons to regain her strength and work on her balance. Jen accepts but has lessons of a different nature in mind.
Never in his career has occupational therapist Ben been asked for bedroom-based exercise lessons and until he met Jen, his answer would have been no. But what’s a single guy to do when faced with those big eyes and that tortured soul?
Will he give in to a chemistry that promises to exceed his private expectations or will he keep it strictly professional and ignore the signs that this could be one hell of a wild ride?
When Cole is hired to install security cameras to the Downunder Ink studio, he finally meets the notorious (and hot) Jacqueline Johnson, ruthless business owner and middle finger flipper to the tourist strip’s upper management team.
Jack’s life is all about work and family. She has a tattoo studio to run and two sisters to watch over and she’d never shirk those responsibilities or wish them away. But. When is it her time? She spends each exhaustion-filled night falling asleep on her design tablet and every other waking moment watching out for Jo and Jen. She’d never admit it out loud but she wants more from her current life.
When beef-cake Cole starts to flirt with her, Jack sees the potential for a naughty game of cat and mouse via voyeurism that hits her in all the right places but who will win when one of the players doesn’t have time for happy ever afters?
