Ten years ago, Harper Connelly was unceremoniously dumped by her high school boyfriend during the same week her mom kicked her out of her house. So she moved across the country and started over. It was all she could do. Now she’s one of the most sought after female tattoo artists in the country, she has a successful business, and she has great friends. But she hasn’t had great luck in love, and she doesn’t exactly let people in. Then on a cross-country flight, she meets Brandon Cooper, a guy who’s been through the love ringer a few times himself and is just looking to have some fun. And for some reason, Harper and Brandon click. He tells her all about his friend he’s visiting in San Francisco, a guy who is about to marry the wrong girl, who Brandon is determined to corrupt during his visit. And part of that corruption is getting his friend a tattoo from the hot girl he met on the plane. But neither Harper nor Brandon realize that she actually knows his friend. And when he walks into her tattoo parlor, for the first time in ten years, Harper comes face-to-face with Ryan Carson, the guy who stole her heart ten years earlier and then broke it into pieces.
In "Just Watch the Fireworks", Ryan Carson was on the losing end of a love triangle. And in response to being dumped, he dove headfirst into work, a new relationship with a girl his mother set him up with and a new life in San Francisco. On paper, his life is perfect, but in reality it’s anything but – and he’s getting married in four weeks. Then one weekend everything changes when he runs into Harper Connelly, the girl he lost ten years earlier.
Old secrets still haunt them and old feelings dominate their interactions with each other, but Ryan and Harper are drawn to each other in ways even they can’t explain. And when the ultimate secret is revealed, Ryan starts to think long and hard about his life and the people he thought he could trust, but one thing is clear – he still loves Harper. But when it comes down to it, can Harper get past everything that happened between them and give him a second chance?
Work of Art is a spin-off novel from Just Watch the Fireworks, but it is also a stand-alone novel.

I love the story background except when the story was talking about the son who passed away.... that part was so sad I love when book bring the emotion out of the reader and it is hard to get me to cry or get carried away with the whole book. GOOD JOB MONICA.
Ms. Alexander knows how to write a love story. As much as I love her Broken Fairytales series, Work of Art is my new favorite. The heroine being the tattooed outcast and the hero being the straight-laced guy for once was so refreshing. Don't get me wrong, I love me some tattooed bad-boys but we all need variation once in a while. And Harper & Ryan are a breath of fresh air. I recommend all of Monica Alexander's books but I highly recommend you start with this one!!!
First let me say that I love Ryan and Harper- but Brandon really stole this book. This book has a wonderful story of forgiveness and re- igniting a love that still burns bright. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more form Monica Alexander.
