To ink or not to ink? 10 things you simply have to know about Vintage Ink...

with thanks to the lovely Arya Grey

10 Things you didn't, but should, know about "Vintage Ink — Every Second Counts".

1. Vintage Ink is located in Downtown Phoenix, not far from the Willow District, where there are historical houses, still standing.
2. Brody spent a lot of his teen years away from his parents and sister, something he has huge regret over.
3. Most of Faye's body is tattooed, but not everyone gets to see the Ursula (Disney's Little Mermaid villainess) eyes that Jackson (best friend) did on her left ass cheek.
4. Brody has been playing drums since infancy. His first memorable toy was a toddler's drum kit, which he played all day and night, much to his poor mother's disgrace.
5. Faye apprenticed when she was underage. Her boss kept her in the backroom, with a tattoo gun and some pig skin she was made to practice on until her lines were smooth and perfect. She found it a bit much at the time, but now sees why. Her skills couldn’t be where they are today without that training.
6. There is a Spotify Playlist that signifies the in-shop music at Vintage Ink.
7. Brody has a younger sister, who will make a very big appearance further down the line. ;)
8. Faye and Jackson had a drunken one-night-stand a very long time ago. Neither of them will talk about it, however.
9. Brody's always had a serious thing for redheads, but hasn't actually dated one until Faye. His little black book would be filled with brunettes and the odd blonde.
10. Faye has never seen snow. Ever



Faye "Lux" Prescott has one passion in her life, her thriving tattoo business in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona. Creating art and working with her friends for a living — who has time or need for a man in her life?
All that changes when Brody Cameron walks into "Vintage Ink". The enigmatic stranger is booked for an impressive tattoo and Faye finds herself falling head over heels in lust — or is that love?
Brody's life has been tough, however, and when he reveals his secrets, can Faye help him move forward, or is their budding relationship doomed before it has even begun?

here's a tease...

It had been twenty minutes—give or take—since Brody and his band walked off the small stage. Faye kept her eyes on the door he’d walked through to start the show for his reappearance as Jackson and Raven bickered behind her about the same girl.
"Who says she's into girls?"
"Who says she's into sanctimonious pricks?"
"Them's fightin' words, girl."
"Both of you, shut up! Neither of you will get anywhere if you stand at the bar and have a drunken slag-fest with each other. Actions are what count. Right?" Faye stared at them both. Jackson's arms were folded and tense at his stomach, and Raven shifted on her feet with her famous scowl on display. "Right?"
"Right." They both replied, at the same time. Raven turned quickly and headed towards the petite blonde. A flustered Jackson was hot on her tail soon enough.
Faye laughed quietly to herself.
"What's so funny?"
Brody's voice wrapped around Faye's senses like a coiled ribbon.
"I was just thinking how lucky my friends are that they're a couple of lovable assholes." She turned and was unexpectedly close to him. Her nose grazed his, and a steel gaze fixed on her own.
"They're lucky to have you," he said. His eyes never left her and although Faye thought she should feel uncomfortable by this, she wasn't. His mere presence put her at a strange ease, regardless of how nervous she was.
"You say that, but you don't even know me." Faye looked toward the bar as she spoke, hoping to catch the bartender's attention.
"That's something I'd like to change. I planned on getting to know you inside and out. If you'll have me, of course."
A simple gesture such as tucking her hair behind her ear had her mind in a tornado of feelings. She held onto the edge of the bar. "Are you kidding?" She looked up at him. "Do you own a mirror? I'm just curious as to why you're so interested in me, or why some gorgeous Scottsdale blonde hasn't snatched you up yet?"
"What makes you think I'm into blonde Scottsdale girls? That couldn't be farther removed from the truth if you'd tried. If you really want to know, I like a woman who can hold her own and creating beautiful art on people's skin every day is just a bonus. Would you like me to continue, because I could go on all night about your beauty alone."
"No, it's fine." Faye smiled up at Brody, who slipped his arms around her waist.
"Good. Now, how many drinks do I need to catch up to you?"

  1. Never seen SNOW?
    Love this book and can't wait for next one. Who will it be about, I wonder?

  2. Yeah she's lived in Phoenix her whole life and hasn't even been a few hours North to Flagstaff to see it!

    Ah, well, you see, the next one is maybe not about who you think... ;)

  3. Cool facts. I look forward to reading it
