1. Protecting His Home – Amelia
If I could choose one person in Denver to tattoo anything they wanted on me it would be Beckett Banks, owner of Banks Ink.. So, when my best friend and coworker has the in for an appointment, I don’t hesitate to go and be her emotional support. Did I have an ulterior motive? Yeah, a little, but my friend is still my first priority.
Beckett may be hotter than any guy I’ve ever met, but he’s kind of a dick, which is all the more obvious considering how nice everyone else in the shop is. Nice and maybe a little flirty. I may have been stalking Beckett’s social media for a while, but that doesn’t mean I’ll allow a guy to be a dick to me. Not again.
He may have apologized, but I can hold a grudge and I’m not going to let my heart get stomped all over. I learned my lesson and now I know how to protect myself. I guess I’ll have to work harder at that now that his friends are conspiring to get us in the same room together. If only he didn’t look so sincere when he apologizes for his behavior, I would have a better chance of keeping my promise to myself and not give my heart away to the talented, sexy and tattooed Beckett Banks.
The day I meet Amelia started out awful, but when I heard her laugh outside my shop, I knew in that moment that she’s the one for me. I shouldn’t have let my past get the better of me. My ex may have been a cheater, but that doesn’t mean that Amelia will be too. She’s gorgeous and sweet, kind and thoughtful. Still, she was flirting with two of my best friends; well, I think she was flirting and it brought up all doubts and fears.
I was a dick to her and there’s no excuse for that. I tried to make it right, but she doesn’t owe me anything and she doesn’t have to accept my apology. I know I need to work harder to make it right with her.
I’m lucky I have some of the best friends a guy can have and they can’t stand seeing me being a moody, grumpy bastard. I only need a chance and I know that I can make it up to her and get her to see how sorry I am. Good thing my friends are making sure I get that chance.
Now I can make her mine because I knew the moment I saw her that she was always meant to be mine. She’s perfect for me, she’s perfect for our rag tag family. She’s home. I’ll always protect my home, no matter what.
2. Accepting His Home – OLIVIA
Being the only woman at Banks Ink. can be tough sometimes. The guys look at me like a little sister, which I don’t mind…for the most part. The only one who doesn’t treat me like a little sister is Zeke, thankfully, because I’ve wanted him from the moment I met him two years ago. If he treated me like a sister I don’t think I could handle it. We’re friends, which is great and all, but I want more. So much more.
I don’t know how much longer I can keep wanting him and being close to him without my heart breaking. I’m losing hope that we will ever be more. Can I let my feelings go? Can I move on? Will he ever let me into the past he guards so fiercely? Will he ever want me the way I want him?
I need to figure out a way to keep my heart and our friendship intact. I just have no idea how to do that.
If anyone knew about what I did then I’d lose everything that I’ve built with my family at Banks Ink.. I can’t risk that, not even for Olivia. When I met her two years ago there was a moment where I didn’t feel the weight of my past and I could almost imagine a happy future. It was fleeting and then reality came crashing down. I’ll never escape my past. I don’t deserve it.
Beckett got me off the streets and gave me a purpose. I’ve worked hard to get to where I am now, but I’ll never deserve love; especially not from someone as amazing as Olivia. She’d look at me like a monster if she ever knew what I did. I can’t let that happen.
So, I guess, friends it is. There’s just one problem: I don’t know how to let her go. I need her.
