The smell of perm lotion and the sound of the dryer’s blowing hot air camouflages the truth, the lies, and the real stories behind the people inside the hair salon.
Cut & Blow flash in neon lights above the glass front of the outdated shop, but inside young talent shave and layer hair while making small talk with clients, that over share.
Ailee is a twenty-year old stylist with more secrets of her own than she hears from others on a daily basis. But, when a tall, long haired customer comes in and seduces her with his deep voice, the skeletons come tumbling out her closet before she can shut the door. Falling in love with him is like stepping off a ledge, she knows it won’t end well, but it feels so good on the way down.
Rainieri watches his wife from a distance, until he just cannot watch any longer. Through the salon window he sees someone else taking what is his, setting off his possessive streak. When she doesn’t get his subtle messages and her stubborn nature won’t give up, he steps in to take what was his all along.
As twisted as the gossip you hear in the hair salon, Cut & Blow will have you blushing and begging to hear the rest of the story.

★★★★★ Five Stars
|I'm a massive fan of this author and I admit I was super nervous starting this book because you're never guaranteed to get what you want from her. I went in completely blind with no idea what to expect and it didn't take long to suck me in|
Ailee and Rain were forced into an arranged marriage but for the last five years they've been living separate lives. With Rains family getting on his back more and more about his wife and marriage it's time for him to start setting things in motion to get her back. I really liked Rain. He's always had Ailee's best intentions in mind and there was just something about him that clicked with me. I loved Ailee. Her life is fast turning into a bad dream or a beautiful nightmare...either way she's screwed. This book was nothing like I was expecting. It's completely different to Ashleigh's other books and I loved every single word of it. It's got surprises and twists, not to mention loads of scorching hot chemistry between the characters.
I admit I get nervous when an author I like switches genres. It's that fear of not knowing if they're going to be able to pull it off and give me what I expect and need from certain genres. Ashleigh hits the mark perfectly with this book. She's added her own unique style and twistiness (new word I just made up) to this story and it works!!! It works better than I ever expected and I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
