Description from the publisher:
"There has to be something on this Earth that holds you here, other than Gravity."

Luke Hanlon was focused on anything but his own life.  The happiness of everyone else came before his own. He worked hard to build Artistic Pricks Ink into the profitable business that it is today and yet, it isn't enough anymore. Something is missing. Someone.

With no one to focus on, but himself, Luke is forced to take a long hard look in the mirror and doesn't like what he sees. Then he meets his mom's neighbor and something clicks into place. But can he handle what comes along with her? Can he let go of the hurt in his past and see what is in front of him?

Kionna Slade is a good girl. She helps her neighbor; she doesn't go wild and crazy. She's independent and doesn't need anyone. After losing her mother and an accident stole her dream of being a Vegas Showgirl, her life took a turn in a direction she never dreamed it would. Now 'Sabrina' runs the show at night, allowing Ki to dance again. Keeping Kionna and Sabrina separate is her main goal, until Luke. Luke Hanlon will throw a wrench in everything she ever thought.

Lives are changed and things explode all around them as they are pulled together. Luke can't stay away, even if his heart and possibly both their lives could be threatened. Can Kionna and Luke find a way to hold onto each other or will they forever be grasping at what they can't have?

This is the first book in the Artistic Pricks series.  They will need to be read in order.

Luke is the kind of guy almost any woman would want.  He’s caring and dependable, with bad boy tattoos, muscles, and charm.  He is protective and alpha-possessive.  He makes no apologies for being a real man!  Kionna, Ki to her friends, is a sweet girl with a set of brass ones… I understand her completely.  She will keep secrets in an effort to keep everyone else happy.  Showing that outward calm and a 24/7 happy, instead of dropping the shields built around her heart.  She is a dancing diamond on stage and Luke’s Dollface everywhere else – a fantasy and a reality yet to be realized. 

I could not put this book down.  I finished reading and I swear I was panting as though I had just finished a 10K.   There was plenty of humor, angst, suspense, lust, love, and passions.  There are beautiful people – inside and out, tattoos, muscles, and great clothes.  One of the things that I love about a Cat Mason story is that the characters become so real.  I wouldn’t be surprised to have any of them drop by, sit on the couch, prop up their feet, and spend an evening watching a movie with me. …and it would be the most companionable day of my week.

Do not get between me and a book from Cat Mason - I will growl like a feral dog!  I just have one tiny question:  When does Significance hit my Kindle (cause I need it about an hour ago!!)
