Read from the Book
1“So Levi tells me you’re a tattoo artist.” Jonah Warner was beyond hot. He was on-fire sexy. Like panties on fire. Raven looked him over, imagining him naked. Imagining him over her, under her, whatever. Just naked and doing something sexy with her would do just fine. He had a voice like smoke. Like caramel and other things made with heavy cream and possibly deep fried. He was whatever things that were a thousand calories that you ordered anyway because you had to consume them. “I do okay.” He looked her over with slow perusal. As if he was wondering what she looked like naked too. Which was absolutely fine with her. One corner of his mouth lifted and she licked her lips, imagining his taste. “You do more than okay.” He held a hand out. “I’m Jonah Warner. Levi’s brother. I know we’ve seen each other in passing at various events but I don’t think we’ve formally met. I’d have remembered.” She took the hand and he slid a thumb over her wrist as he shook it. “I’m Raven.” He made her all tingly in the absolute best way. She wanted a bite of this man. Maybe a whole mouthful. “Did you do Erin’s ink?” He tipped his chin toward where Erin stood with her brother Adrian. “Nope. That’s all Brody Brown. I do okay. He’s a genius. But I’m hotter.” Jonah laughed then and she had to fight the urge to step closer. Anywhere but this party and she might not have resisted. But she’d promised Erin to try her hardest to remember her manners. “You are most assuredly hotter. He’s not my type at all.
From the Publisher
Beauty is more than skin-deep…
Tattoo artist Raven Smith is blunt and hard, broken and jaded, dark and beautiful. While she doesn’t hide her painful past, she does keep a wall around her heart. She’s free sexually—but no one gets to the real Raven beneath the prickly exterior.
With a voice like smoke, Jonah Warner is a smooth-talking, highly successful attorney, with a body that should never be hidden by a suit. He’s the kind of man who never takes no for an answer and always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Raven. She’s a survivor, and he finds that incredibly alluring.
Jonah gets under her skin in a way Raven has never experienced. He makes her break all her rules—including her no-monogamy rule.
But when a figure from Raven’s past shows up at the tattoo parlor and drops a bomb into her life, their relationship will face the ultimate challenge…
