Echoes of Scotland Street by Samantha Young

On Dublin Street #5
When Shannon was 15, she met a boy while waiting for her boyfriend. His name was Cole Walker. They only spoke for a few minutes but they connected. But her boyfriend showed up and off she went. Nine years later, after some terrible heart break she's back in Edinburgh and looking for a job. She applies for a job at a tattoo parlor. She gets the job and starts on Monday, where the manager is Cole Walker. She pretends that she does not remember him. He is still attracted to her and flirts with her. She freaks out on him because she believes he like all the losers she was with before. It causes problems. He gets angry and hurt and she is mad. But when he is forced to include her at his birthday party, she gets an insight into the person he really is.
She apologizes to him and they start to date. He gets her to confront her past and it causes problems in their relationship.  Will they get back what they had?

I LOVED THIS BOOK.  I can totally relate to Shannon. We have some of the same issues.

From the author:
She’s done with bad boys, but he’s just so good…
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 wake-up 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 to 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.…
