Written on my Heart by Cole Gibsen

It's been six months since Ashlyn Daniels was kicked out of her home. Six months since she stood up to her abusive stepfather and got a busted rib—and seeing all her things set ablaze in a backyard bonfire—for her trouble. Never going back. She doesn't need trouble...especially if trouble is tattoo artist Lane Garrett, who's six-feet-plus of tattooed hotness and a complete ass.

Lane has spent the last decade fighting to support his family. To protect them. There's no room for romance, even with a fragile (yet amusingly feisty) stunner...even if she somehow manages to invade his world and his heart.

But while some secrets are as visible as ink on the skin, others must remain hidden at all costs...

My review:
This book is amazing. Ashlyn is on her own.  She still jumps at shadows.  She escaped an abusive home situation and a controlling boyfriend and is getting by the best she can.  She writes her poetry when she can.  She is working as a barista and renting a room from a stripper.  While working at the coffee shop she is barreled over by co-worker Emily who is determined to be friends.  When Em notices Ashlyn’s tattoo of her ex’s name she insists that Ashlyn visit this fantastic tattoo artist she knows who will cover it with something else so Ashlyn can start anew. 
Emily’s brother Lane is a gifted tattoo artist who has made his share of mistakes. When his father, a cop, died he took over the responsibility for his mother and Em. He has no room in his life for a women especially not one as fragile as Ashlyn. Life laughs at plans.
At first I thought this was going to be the white knight and princess type of story but while our hero does have white knight tendencies our princess is plenty strong on her own despite outward appearances but everyone can use a bit of help from a friend now and then.   Break out the tissues and ice cream and enjoy this heart lifting story.
