Hel's Ink Book One
When my father passed away, I assumed my grieving would be as simple as closing a book and starting another. Only, he had other plans.
Leaving me his beloved tattoo shop, I’m stuck to figure out what exactly to do with it, all while being constantly reminded of him.
Selling it was the easiest option, but after hearing some of the artists elated at the idea because they swore I’d ruin it if I took over, and reading the fine print of my father’s will, I’m determined to prove them wrong.
The only problem is Fox.
He’s arrogant, self-absorbed, and rude–doing everything in his power to show just how true their words would ring.
Unfortunately for him though, I’ve never been afraid of a challenge.
Hel’s Ink was supposed to be mine, but after my mentor passed away, I learned he had other plans in mind.
Leaving the shop to someone like Janie was a bad idea. Sure she may be able to make it look good on the surface, but there is more to running this place than social media posts and some paint. We’re a family and she’s not welcomed.
Only, the longer she’s here, the harder it’s proving to believe my own words.
She’s too young for me, and far too complicated, but I can’t help but wonder what would happen if I just give in.
