Book Summary:

“Live, no regrets”

Sloane Locke has led a sheltered life. However, with a history like hers, she can understand why her brothers and her father want so much to protect her. She has gone along with it for twenty long years, but those days are over. For the girl who never makes promises, Sloane has made a pact with herself that things will change on her twenty-first birthday. So when the clock strikes midnight, Sloane strikes out to spread her wings and break a few rules.

In addition to inking skin, Hemi Spencer possesses many talents. Controlling himself has never been one of them. It’s never had to be. He’s lived a life of indulgence for as long as he can remember. Right up until tragedy struck. Now, he’s nothing but controlled. He’s a man on a mission, one who will let nothing and no one stand in his way.

Nothing in their lives could’ve prepared Sloane and Hemi for what they’d find in each other—distraction and obsession, love and possession. But the one thing they can’t find is a future. Neither one has been totally honest. And they’ll soon learn that the devil is in the details. In the details and in the lies.
How far will two people go to live in the now when the now is all they’ve got?

What Made Me Swoon:

"Touching.  My lips on Hemi's are desperate.  Tasting.  My heart on Hemi is certain.  Exploding.  I love him.  And he loves me.  There is no more perfect day than today.  After all the pain, there is joy.  Joy unspeakable.  And I have no regret.  It was worth it.  Worth it all to hear him say he loves me.  Hemi's skin has never felt smoother under my palms.  His mouth has never tasted so sweet.  It's like rediscovering him, like falling for him all over again.  Only this time, there's a net to catch me.  He's my net because he loves me, too.  And that makes him worth the risk.  Worth anything."  (eARC, Loc. 4498)
