When Cole is hired to install security cameras to the Downunder Ink studio, he finally meets the notorious (and hot) Jacqueline Johnson, ruthless business owner and middle finger flipper to the tourist strip’s upper management team.

Jack’s life is all about work and family. She has a tattoo studio to run and two sisters to watch over and she’d never shirk those responsibilities or wish them away. But. When is it her time? She spends each exhaustion-filled night falling asleep on her design tablet and every other waking moment watching out for Jo and Jen. She’d never admit it out loud but she wants more from her current life.

When beef-cake Cole starts to flirt with her, Jack sees the potential for a naughty game of cat and mouse via voyeurism that hits her in all the right places but who will win when one of the players doesn’t have time for happy ever afters?

Meet the Downunder Ink Crew!

Jacqueline, Jennifer and Josephine Johnson never had it easy. Losing their parents early in life and being raised by an eccentric aunt means one sister lacks discipline and wouldn’t know responsibility if it slapped her in the ass. One sister wanted to forge her own path but wound up in a relationship with the wrong type of guy, a guy who is now doing ten years in maximum security. The other is an artist with a clear plan but her business is only just scraping up enough to pay the taxes on the building she inherited despite her long hours and no time for play.

Set on the beautiful east coast of Australia in a tropical fancy fictional tourist town, Jack, Jen and Jo are spiralling. Two know it. One doesn’t. None of them really know how to stop it and all three are just barely surviving.

Meet the men who change it all…

Ash has a history being a bad boy but tried to put it all behind him. Until his ex faked a pregnancy which sent him to Australia to gain some peace and space and work at Downunder Ink. Now Jo wants him to help her get over her fear of intimacy with men, by being intimate with her. But hands off buddy, you can lick but you can’t touch.

Ben is a PT who works with returned soldiers and hates the flippant way tattoo artist Jen jokes with men who have seen the worst of the worst. Men who lost a piece of themselves and think ink is the way to tidy up the scars left behind. But Jen has a scar of her own, a past too, and Ben might be just the man to help her adjust to her new way of living…and fucking.

When Cole is hired to install security cameras to the Downunder Ink studio, he finally meets the notorious Jacqueline Johnson, ruthless business owner and middle finger flipper to the street’s upper management team. They’ve been trying to drive the sisters from the strip for a few years, their aunt and her sex shop for at least thirty before that. A freehold building means no one can stop them. Cole admires that, he admires Jack, but she’s wound up tight shouldering the burdens of everyone around her while attempting to protect her sisters from life. He might soon discover fun Jack be too hot for one man to handle…
