A new adult story of First Times. Last Times. Connections. And No Regrets...
I only wanted a tattoo. A mark on my body to remind me of who I used to be. Something to hold onto when I started my penance for all the things I’d done wrong, the bad choices I’d made by the time I turned nineteen. Instead, I found a night of possibility, of truth, of hope for the future. And the most intense physical connection I’ve ever had. 
The only one I’ve ever had, and one I will never forget.
When she walked into my tattoo shop, I knew she was like me. Harley had secrets. She had a messed-up past, and things she wanted to run from, or forget ever happened. I couldn’t let her go. So we agreed on one night – to spend it together wandering around the city, getting to know each other, the clock ticking because we knew tomorrow would bring an end to the possibility of an us.
Unless tonight was only the start.
How can one night be the start of something when tomorrow it has to end?

I've always wanted to get a tattoo but I'm still scared to get one. I'm scared of the pain the needles may bring, but I know it's part of it. I want a dream catcher (I know, too mainstream) but I've always wanted to catch my dreams. Remember them, whether they're good or bad. And if it's something good, I want to make them come true.

In this prequel to The Thrill Of It, Harley got her first tattoo, a ribbon. She walked in at the tattoo parlor of Trey, the cute and hot tattoo artist that would change her life from the day she met him. They were both attracted to each other the moment their eyes meant and this lead them to their sexy moments at the NYC train and back to Trey's place. The scenes were not that really "physical" if you know what I mean but they were already too hot to handle.

This is also the part where they were not yet ready to share each other's secrets but they know that they will soon. I have yet to read The Thrill Of It so I just feel bad that they consider their first night as their last as well. I want to know what will happen next!
