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.

An immovable force meets a force of nature.

An immovable force meets a force of nature. Sparks fly in this battle of the tattoo artist and the headstrong temptress. Ms. North picked a super title for this prickly couple. From the most stubborn of thorns Riley and Gio created something beautiful. Animosity bloomed like the most sensuous of buds and became as breathtaking as a rose.

Gread story! I love tattoo shop stories!

This is the first book in the Thorn Tattoo Studio. I love tattoo shop stories. Besides the love story, Leslie North added a lot of information about this Art. It's really interesting and well written! I love the two main characters, Riley Bryne and Giovanni DeRose, they are great together. It was my first E.M. Carberry's listen and the narration was great. I'm looking forward to read/listen the second book in the Series.
