Synopsis (from Goodreads):
An emotional love story that follows the touch-and-go relationship of Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts.

As Hayden and Tenley navigate their newfound but slightly unstable relationship, they want to trust each other, but Hayden is hiding a dark and shameful past that he doesn't ever want Tenley to find out about. And Tenley has secrets of her own that could make Hayden run away forever. When Tenley asks Hayden to put a beautifully elaborate tattoo across her back, the two form what they thought was an unshakeable bond. But when Tenley's past shows up on her doorstep, will Hayden stand by her side...or run?

My Review:
This book was certainly a page turner for me, you get so captivated that sometimes you do not even realise how long it really is. I was never really fond of tattoos or body piercing, until I had the chance at reading this book, but the detail described of Hayden’s tattoos, showed that the author is definitely a fan of tattooing. It is pretty obvious when an author does not do proper research, this author definitely knows her stuff and what she is writing about. Even though I have never once stepped foot in a tattoo parlor the descriptions were so perfectly written that I felt like I was standing in one.

When have a dual point of view makes it less surprising for you, you get to know so much about both character. I wonder what it would be like if it was told just from one person’s point of view, but I have to say that I did not really see the ending coming at all. And what shocked the sxxt out of me. It is a good ending that leaves wanting and waiting for more in the next book.
