In Regina Cole’s steamy novel of hot ink and delicious angst, two tortured artists take a leap of faith—but the past threatens to tear them apart.
After her parents pull the plug on her college fund to finance their nasty divorce, Hailey Jakes is desperate to pay her own way and finish her degree in graphic design. She can hardly believe her luck when the sexiest guy she’s ever seen hires her to be the receptionist at his tattoo shop. With sea-blue eyes, jet-black hair, and full sleeves of tattoos on his muscular arms, Neill Vanderhaven looks like the kind of guy who wouldn’t give her the time of day. In fact, he’s mesmerized by her—and it doesn’t hurt that she’s talented as hell.
But Hailey and Neill have more in common than instant chemistry: They’re both carrying serious baggage. Hailey’s parents split after years of blowout fights and sloppy affairs. Neill just got out of something serious with a woman who loved her bad habits more than she loved him. When they take the plunge on a new relationship, they’re both breaking their own rules.
But then a terrible misunderstanding brings Neill’s worst fears to life, and their connection threatens to come crashing down. What they have is more than skin-deep, but now Hailey and Neill need to decide whether the kind of love that lasts forever is worth such exquisite pain.

She also writes mainstream romance as Gina Lamm.

Mostly, Draw Me In did just that. There were a few times that I found myself being frustrated by some repetitions
Draw Me In flowed at a decent pace. The plot moved along quite nicely.
The main man and most of the characters were tattooed and worked in a tattoo parlor. Our leading lady, is named Hailey. She is a college art student who is dealt a raw deal when her parents have issues. Because of that she goes looking for a job and ends up meeting Neill.
Both Hailey and Neill are dealing with things. Well, they are trying to deal with their issues. One of them does a better job than the other in my opinion.
Eventually they get together just to have one of them take a relapse and cause the other to be hurt.
