Lauren’s in a helluva mess. Not only has she lost her corporate HR job, she’s just inherited Wicked Brand, a struggling West Palm Beach tattoo parlor…along with the virile dude who runs it. Lauren’s full-figured, sorta pretty, and wanting him badly. Dream on. She’s here to sell the place as quickly as possible for some much-needed cash and score a new position in the corporate world.

Dante’s sinfully hot with a killer smile and beautifully inked biceps. He sees the heat in Lauren’s eyes despite her conservative appearance, recognizing the dynamite woman she could be if she’d just loosen up and have some wicked fun. Dominance and submission. Making love in a public place. Having her lush body always accessible to and ready for his.

Unwilling and unable to keep their hands to themselves, Lauren and Dante turn to carnal games and seduction. Until lust turns to surprising need and friendship to something deeper.

Each book in the Wicked Brand series is STANDALONE:

Admittedly I wanted to read this book for more than the enticing blurb, the story takes place close to where I live. I know the neighborhood. It's trendy, arty and great food.

Yum, Dante can takeover my body anytime. If only he didn't keep referencing his penis as a rod. I don't understand why anyone would.

Quick, sweet, body positive, grammatically correct (I've read a lot of crap lately!), erotica, romance book. I paid full Kindle price, but you get what you pay for. It has very light hints of dom-sub elements, but in a playful way. And it's set in a tattoo parlor. Just the sort of escapism I was loo ...more
