Two Ink Minimum

Permanent Hangover Book 1

by Michel Prince

Genre: Tattoo(Inker), Contemporary Romance


In book one of Permanent Hangover: All Finn Gardner wanted was a breath of fresh air when he stepped into the alley behind the Permanent Hangover Bar and Tattoo Parlor. At first sight, he’d thought it was just another homeless person to shoo away from the building. Instead, he found someone who needed help—his help.
Having been given a second chance himself, Finn believes in paying it forward. The Hangover has taken more than one lost soul in over the years.
Bailey Parson needed to get away. She left her life in Chicago behind and escaped to St. Paul, but she never once thought far enough ahead to what her next step would be when she arrived there. To her, what she was running from, was much more to worry about than some half-baked plan. After a month stuck on the streets, a new need arises as the temperature started to drop—survival.
Given a chance by a stranger, Bailey works to find her way. Not only winning over customers and the staff with her smart wit and empathy, she wins over the standoffish tattoo artist.
Keeping their relationship forward focused, Finn hoped to avoid both of their baggage. However, when Bailey’s past threatens to destroy everything they built together, Finn’s left with decisions to make. Does he give up the beautiful curvy woman, the only one whose touch calms him? How much of his dark past would he need to unlock to save her? A past with the potential to destroy what they have together.
More importantly, can the lovers turn the scars of the past into a design strong enough to see them through any challenge? Or will the permanent ink leave them with open wounds and no chance of healing?

“What’s that place like?”
“Loud tonight,” he replied. “You’ve never been?”
“No,” she shook her head a bit surprised he wasn’t catching on she was homeless.
“I’m Finn.” He extended his hand like she was a human being. The simple contact warmed her.
“Jane,” she said not wanting to let go of his warm hand, but knew she had to. “You a bartender?”
“Nah, they don’t really get breaks. I’m with the tattoo parlor.”
She finally paid attention to the sign on the back of the door that said Permanent Hangover. A whiskey bottle with two tattoo guns on either side reminded her of angel wings.
“What is this place?”
“Bar, club, whatever you want to call it with a few chairs for tattooing.” He cleared his throat. “So, Jane, I don’t suppose the last name is Doe?”
“Yes, are you psychic? Only I spell it the French way.”
“D-O-U-G-H,” he said, and she let out a laugh. “Jayne with a Y?”
“Exactly.” She stuffed her hand into the pouch of her sweatshirt. A cash business would be good. Waitressing at a place could get her some much-needed funds and if nothing else Bailey knew how to flirt. “Any chance they need a waitress? I know I don’t look like much, but I clean up pretty good.”
“I can see that,” he said as he approached her. Holding her ground, she fought the urge to flee. It was then the single light at the edge of the alley seemed far away. The exits, too. Now trapped, she wondered if she’d set herself up for an assault. Instead, he lifted the lid to the trash bin and tossed his empty can of Smash.
“You ever waitress before?”
“No, but I’ve worked in customer service.” Being an escort wasn’t exactly a resume builder. “Not for—I’ve never had a job really.”
“Garage sale maven?” he questioned.
“Are you sure you’re not my stalker?”

No one finds their soulmate at first glance.
Dominic Torres did though. From the second he saw his best friend’s little sister, he knew she was the one for him. Fast forward three years and now she’s his best friend and she has him firmly in the friend zone. He’s convinced he’ll never have the college romance his parents had. Until the day it almost happened. Brooke Caldwell’s life fell apart two days after her tall, dark and handsome best friend almost kissed her. A split second of hesitation made her question her entire relationship with her best friend. You wouldn’t think that a kiss that didn’t even happen would make her question her feelings as much as it did. But all of Brooke’s friends had said he had a thing for her. Unrequited love or a figment of her imagination? When an argument gets out of hand, Brooke and Dom hit a breaking point that has both of them scrambling into new relationships. Even pissed off and broken, neither of them can ignore the other for long. From best friends to lovers, one night could change everything.





Prologue Brooke
My head throbbed as I fought to open my eyes. The afternoon sun streamed into the car through the spiderweb design on the windshield glass. It took me a second to catch my breath. I choked back a sob as I realized the world was upside down and there was blood on the dashboard.
“Dom.” My voice was throaty and weak, and I was having a hard time staying conscious. I was trying to tell myself this was nothing more than a horrible, horrible dream, but I knew. My throbbing head and stabbing pain in my side told me it wasn’t.
What the hell happened?
“Dom,” I said again, this time a little stronger. I was careful to disguise the panic that was threatening to take over, just in case he was awake.
The smell of burnt rubber and oil assaulted me as I shifted slightly in my seat to look at Dom. He wasn’t moving and blood streamed from a nasty gash on his forehead. It looked deep.
“Dominic, please wake up,” I whispered. “I need you to wake up now, baby.”
I reached over slowly, searching around to find his hand. I gasped when his fingers threaded through mine. “Damn it, Dom. Talk to me! Tell me you’re okay!”
My chest burned where the seatbelt dug into me, but I couldn’t move enough to release it. Even if I could, there was no way I’d leave Dom in here alone if I could get out of the wreckage. Who knew if it was even safe for me to do it? I could end up fracturing my spine or something worse.
I squeezed his hand again. “It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I wanted to go to our spot. After everything that’s happened, we have to be together.” I bit down on my bottom lip before continuing. “Please be okay.”
The sound of sirens filled the late afternoon air and I prayed they were coming to us. There was no way I could reach either of our phones to call for help. I’d already checked if I could reach them, but both had flown into the floorboard when we got hit.
“Dom?” I called again.
If he’s awake I need to keep him talking.
God, I wasn’t a nurse. The only things I knew about medical shit was from Grey’s Anatomy.
“Hurts,” he groaned.
I squeezed his hand gently, sinking my teeth into my lower lip to keep the sob from breaking loose. Something dug into my side and I attempted to turn further toward him. I could barely see him from the corner of my eye. My fingers itched to touch him and reassure myself we were both going to be fine.
“I know, baby. We’re going to get help and we’ll be okay.”
“Love you,” he whispered. “Remember that. Always.”
I stilled and dread crept up my spine, my blood running cold. This was not going to be his deathbed confession.
Absolutely fucking not.
“Damn it, Dom. We had a deal. Don’t give up on us.”
We hadn’t made it through the last year for us to be ripped apart now. I wouldn’t let it happen.
“Dominic, talk to me. Tell me the story about how we first met. I want to hear you say how my purple hair was the first thing you noticed after I stole your coffee. Tell me how much you loved it again. I’ll even dye it purple if you’ll talk to me. Please squeeze my hand, baby.”
I listened and waited. His breathing was labored and from his lack of response I could tell he wasn’t conscious anymore.
“Wake up! Damn it, Dominic!” My throat burned from screaming, the smoke, and the strain of being upside down. “Wake up right now!”
The acrid scent of the wreckage was making me nauseous. Panic started to creep in and I didn’t know if I could hold it together much longer. My chest ached because each second we were there I was another second closer to losing him. We are stuck. There was nothing I could do to help either one of us. I felt so fucking helpless. I shifted again and a sharp pain shot into my side, stronger than anything I’d felt so far. My shirt was already soaked in blood, enough that I’d hopefully lose consciousness again. Because I needed to escape this nightmare.
All I could do was pray that if Dominic died I would too because living without him wasn’t an option—not anymore.
Never again.
I screamed at him to wake up again, but he still didn’t move. My screams hurt my ears as I told him it wasn’t fair for him to leave me here alone. Tears scalded my cheeks and I couldn’t breathe. None of this was fair. I pleaded with God to take me instead of him. Dom deserved to live. He was the kind of man who would change the world.
And it had taken me too long to realize it.
I saw the familiar shiny shoes of a police uniform before he was down on the ground, looking into my scared hazel eyes. His deep voice was reassuring, but I could barely hear him through the rush of emotions taking place inside of me. I saw his mouth move, asking me questions, but everything sounded like I was underwater. He motioned for someone else to come help him. Blessed darkness took over as I finally lost consciousness.

What happens when your captor becomes your savior?

Mikayla Miller wakes up one morning, bound to a bed, in a farmhouse in Alberta, Canada, with no recollection of how she got there.

When she comes face to face with her captor, Mikayla can’t deny the instant chemistry between them. The man she only knows as Nolan insists he’s her protector, but lives by his own unique moral compass.

As the days turn into months, Nolan’s touch, his words, and the way he looks at her, ignite her body and soul. No matter how hard Mikayla fights their unmistakable connection they share, she begins to fall for him, and a new woman is created in her place.

Back in the small town where Mikayla disappeared, two women reel from a shattering loss. When letters suddenly start appearing from Mikayla, twelve years later, they are left wondering why she’d choose her abductor over her own family.

Love is complicated, and messy;
but sometimes the heart can’t help what it wants.

For Mikayla Miller, it never was a choice.

Deep down, Mikayla understood Nolan was taking over her heart. Ethan, her boyfriend, had come out of nowhere, and she thought their love was the real deal until Nolan appeared in her life.

“No, Mikayla, get that out of your mind,” she said out loud to stun her back to reality.

“Who are you talking to?” Nolan asked, walking by her room.

“Just myself,” she replied.

“I’m not a bad guy, Mikayla,” he said, and she wanted to think of him as a monster, but she couldn’t.

He entered her room, this time without permission, and she didn’t stop him. As she sat with her ass planted on her bed, he walked toward her, stopping when his knees touched hers. She didn’t look at him, but he grasped her chin, tipping her head to his. “You have to know what I feel for you is as real as the snow outside.”

Her eyes tried to avoid his gaze, but the more she felt his stare, the more it drew her eyes to look at his. “Mikayla, tell me to leave the room, and I will.”

She sat silently, not saying a word. “Mikayla, tell me not to touch you, and I won’t.”

Again, she said nothing.

“Mikayla, tell me you don’t have feelings for me, and I will believe you.”

Again, she couldn’t speak. At the moment, she was mute.

“Tell me not to kiss you right now, and I won’t.”

Sitting down next to her, he moved her face to his, leaning his head toward her. “This is it, sweetness, no turning back.” Right then, she leaned in, placing her lips on his as their connection strengthened with their first kiss. It was soft. How could his lips be so tender, she thought as their tongues danced together? She couldn’t pull away. In her mind with her judgment clouded she told herself, I don’t want to stop this, not now, not ever.

Author: Abby Gale
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 28, 2018
I used to be Veronica; an innocent kid, a daughter, the girl who lived in the darkness.  Then I saw the Sun, learned how to laugh and shared chocolate under the firework covered sky. I was Nikki then; an innocent girl who smiled at only one person, a girl with hopes and dreams. 
Then, I lost everything. 
First, God left me, and I lost my faith.
Then my innocence followed it.
Finally, my hopes and dreams went missing with my smile.
And I became Sage; a strong woman who wears her pain and loss like an armor. I’ve suffered through the seductive sway of my hips and sensual beats of the music. 
Then he came back, bringing the Sun with him. But this time, he hasn’t come to light up my world, this time he’s come to eclipse it.
NOTE: This book isn’t pretty. This book is raw and dark. It's painful and melancholic. There is content that will be triggering for some. I know you'll cringe at times. I know your heart will break so many times. But in the end, I believe and hope that I managed to deliver a story that will stay with you. I know you wonder if this is a HEA or a non-HEA. I won't reveal that, but I want you to trust me.
