Wishbone Tattoos #1

What We Deserve

Rate this book
I’m used to being alone, until she changed everything...

When my ex-wife left, she said the cruelest words she could think of, and I took them all to heart.

Now I work at my loveable bastard cousin’s tattoo parlor and keep most people at arm’s length. I have the occasional one night stand to take the edge off, but there can never be anything more than that for me.

I don’t let myself think about how lonely I am. At least I’m not ruining anyone’s life, right?

Then Emily walks into Wishbone Tattoos, asking about the receptionist job. And this shy, smiling, kindhearted woman is everything I’ve ever wanted.

I can’t help falling for her, even though I know I mustn't, for both our sakes.

But there’s something about Emily I don’t know. Something that will make her the exception to my hard and fast rule...

She’s battle scarred herself, and running scared from a dark past which snaps at her heels, but I’m not going to let anyone hurt her ever again, I swear to god.

And maybe, if we’re lucky and we both want it hard enough, the two of us will finally get what we deserve.
