Publisher's Summary

“A man like him could never be tamed....”
Giovanni DeRose only came back to Las Vegas to work with his brothers in the legendary family tattoo studio. Instead, he’s found himself the leader of a sinking ship, thrown together with a gorgeous woman who won’t back down. But with the threat of closure if he doesn’t turn a profit ASAP, working alongside her may be his only option. Gio can do just about anything with his talented hands and bare skin, but this bad boy will need something different if he’s going to save Thorn....
Riley Bryne is an Irish lass that’s as smooth as whiskey - if you don’t mind the burn that comes along with it. As Thorn’s new co-manager she’s desperate to pull it back into the green to clear her own debt, but her numbers-focused tactics throws her up against her Gio’s art-centered direction. 
Challenging the tattooed hunk is easy, but stopping herself falling for his smoldering touch? The odds don't look good. 
Riley is business savvy and a little bit bossy - something Giovanni finds frustrating in the studio and hot as hell when he’s got her pinned to their office desk. But if Thorn Tattoo is going to survive they’ll need to combine not just their bodies, but their talents outside the bedroom, too.

Brilliant as always

I've listened to a lot of books by this author and I've cone to expect a great book, and this book delivers exactly that.

This story had me laughing out loud and feeling right along with the characters.

I loved the slow build of the relationship between Giovanni and Riley, I thought it made the story realistic and the tension between them was a lot of fun. The mystery of Riley's past also added another great element to the book.

I really enjoyed listening to it, the narrator did a great job with the character voices and conveying emotions.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Dichotomy: Oppositions within.

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great start to a new series. Characters are believable and the situations are mired by pride, lust and doubt... Gio is dichotomous. He always wears a tailored suit, dressed to the nines, while underneath, he’s tattooed and pierced. Riley is similar with her organized, black and white, structured demands but her secret is everything opposite. A natural fit, right?

E. M. Carberry does a great job. I believe it’s the first time I’ve listened to his work and hope to hear more.

Two Thumbs Up!!
