Plot line: Beginning of book the heroine returns after years away and stops in local tattoo shop to add onto her tattoo. Runs into former high school flame who was a bad boy from wrong side of tracks, she was a rich girl, who is now a tattoo artist/owner of local shop. Bad blood between them. He supposedly cheated on her but it was a ruse so she could have a bright future without him. She was pregnant and didn’t tell him. Difficult pregnancy and the male child named Thomas? died in a car accident? He’s still seeing the girl who he supposedly cheated with in high school. Main characters get back together and she ends up telling him about the child. Grave visitation, hunky owner of strip club as romantic interest for heroine, special tree tattoo to commemorate death of child, hero ends up doing her tattoo. Second chance.

Here's the link for TeriD's suggestion - Anywhere But Here by Stephanie Hoffman McManus.

Here's a short Amazon "Look Inside" preview - https://www.amazon.com/Anywhere-Here-...

Some reviewers say, "Shae, a writer, is on her way back to where she grew up to settle her grandmothers estate." | "The first time she sees him again, she punches him in the face and breaks his nose... Kellen owns a tattoo shop, and Shae happens to walk in to get an addition made to her back piece." | "Seven years ago when they were in high school Kellan was poor. His parents were gone, older brother a looser drug dealer, he is doing his best to take care of his younger sister while working and trying to graduate high school. A classroom assignment brought them together and from there they fell in love. She the rich girl..." | "They fall deeply in love until one fateful night when Kellen decides he is not good for Shae’s future and calls it quits. Because of her secret Shae leaves town to never return. While she is gone the most horrific thing happens to her and someone she dearly loves."
