Summary

Investment banker Ash Taylor left her cut-throat world to set up a cool, cutting-edge tattoo studio. Her love life's been a lot bumpier, though. Ever since a heart-breaking affair with a straight colleague, she's vowed to steer clear of women unsure of their sexuality. 

Talent-agency executive Carmen Lyttleton is straight, career focused, and not prone to distraction from her occasional casual relationships. When her best friend gets a tattoo at Ash's studio, Carmen finds herself unexpectedly impressed by Ash and her business. 

When they accidentally meet again, Carmen is shocked by the sparks between them and the realization that she feels a lot more than just admiration for Ash's work ethic. It can't possibly mean what it seems...can it? 

The pull between the women is powerful but so are their fears, old baggage, and stubbornness. Can they dare to love?

Contains mature themes.

Great story, well narrated.

When you read and enjoy a book prior to the audio version there’s always some trepidation (well known/well seasoned lesfic narrators aside of course). This narrator does a superb job bringing each character to life however, great performance.
Highly recommend giving this book a go.

Lovely

Loved this audiobook - well developed characters who are charming and endearing. The secondary characters, friends and family of Ash and Carmen were appealing in their own right and critical to the story. A realistic
and wonderful love story. I plan to listen to as many more from this author as I can!

Dare

I've read quite a few books by A.L. Brooks, this book is the first from her that I could finish. It read like a harlequin romance, boring at times. So much angst and OMG the women were in there 40s. I'll think twice buying another book from this author.
