Nursing student Avery Michaels wants nothing to do with dating—she’s perfectly happy single. Privy to too many of her mother’s bad decisions and even worse taste in boyfriends, all Avery can handle is a string of uncomplicated hookups whenever the mood strikes.
When she meets smoking hot tattoo artist Bennett, she wants him—for just one night. But he won’t accept a no-strings-attached arrangement. He lives by a straight-laced code of values based on his own troubled upbringing.
Bennett sees something special in Avery and he wants more from her. Way more. As Avery wrestles with her emotions for Bennett, danger and tragedy force them to open up to each other. And Avery must face the terrifying realization that she wants more from him, too.
So she needs to make a choice—let Bennett go or finally let him in.

After watching her mother’s merry-go-round of bad decisions her whole life, Avery has no strings attached hookups when she feels like it. Now though she wants that with Bennett, but Bennett doesn’t seem all that eager to fall into bed.

He thinks that woman maybe Avery, but Avery is not quite on board with his plan.

Hauntingly beautiful. There is a rawness to Avery, she is tough but vulnerable and you find yourself softening to her despite the hard edge she tries to keep in place. I thought Bennett was a remarkable character, he is the epitome of don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Excellent story.
