Shannon MacLeod has always gone for the wrong type of man. After she drifted from one toxic relationship to the next, her last boyfriend gave her a wakeup call in the worst possible way. With her world shattered, she’s sworn off men—especially those of the bad-boy variety.
Cole Walker is exactly the sort that Shannon wants to avoid—gorgeous, tattooed, charming, and cocky. But his rough exterior hides a good man who’s ready to find “the one.” He’s determined to pull Shannon from her self-imposed solitude and win her heart.
As Shannon opens up in the face of Cole’s steady devotion, the passion between them ignites to blazing levels. But when Shannon’s past comes back to haunt her, her fears may destroy the trust Cole has built between them—and tear them apart for good…

“She’s done with bad boys… but he’s just too good…”

After being burned by her past, can Shannon truly trust Cole?
I received this book in exchange for a fair, thoughtful, and honest book review. This in no way swayed my opinion nor rating.While getting all the product details ready for this review, I realized that this book is part of a series. Fortunately for me, Echoes of Scotland Street can be read as a stand-alone. I never felt lost or without answers, despite this being book 5 in the series.
Speaking of Cole and Shannon, I was happy to see them get together. Once she let down her guard, their relationship made sense. Their passions ignited and my book nearly burned up; the scenes were so hot and steamy! And although they were seemingly different, they actually both had a lot in common. They were both lovers of art and cared deeply about the ones around them.
Overall, I enjoyed this author’s writing style and the cleverly crafted story about a tattoo artist and his secretary who fall in love, slowly but surely. It was a delightful story with a happily ever after. I would recommend this story to romance fans, and women who have a hankering for tattooed “book boyfriends”.
