Publisher's Summary

Now a Top 100 Amazon Best Seller 

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Giana Darling comes a new friends-to-lovers, MC romance about the asshole biker next-door and the girl who loves him.... 

He moved in next door.
Handsome as sin, older in a way that meant forbidden.
He had tattoos on his hands and wickedness tucked in his grin.
I was a goner as girl to a man they called Casanova for a reason. He would never love me, at least not the way I needed him to.
I tried to move on. But I couldn’t turn my back on him or The Fallen MC.
So when they needed me most, I offered the only thing of value I could use to help them.
My body.
And when helping them meant putting my life on the line, Nova had to decide just how much he was willing to do to get me out alive. 

A stand-alone friends-to-lovers age-gap romance in The Fallen Men series.

This book❤

I had to edit my original edit. I want to do this book justice. I have only read it through audible, but it is easily my favorite book I have collected on my account. I read the series out of order. I started with Zeus's story bc of Tik tok. I have read Priest and Lion's story. Loved Priest, but wasn't so into Lion. Honestly, I thought Priest would be my favorite bc I am that dark. But Lord help me. Lila and Nova???!!! Holy hotness. Aidan Snow was a sexy, alpha Nova. I listened to this book. Stopped and grieved for it ending and then restarted it at Ch. 17. I have so many bookmarks in this one. The Bonus Epilogue is one of the best. Seriously, the writing is extraordinary. I didn't want it to end ever. I also loved that Lila was not the usual pale beauty that is in a lot of these stories (which I don't mind, it was just different). She knew when to call him on his nonsense while also knowing when he needed her support. I don't know. I had hit a book slump and then I found Giana's books and I couldn't stop listening to Inked. Both narrators were fantastic and the story was perfect for me. The female narrator was SO dang Hot!! I don't regret buying this one and I will read it again and again. Love is an understatement. NOVA and LILA are a dream. I crushed on them both.

Nova and Lila

I loved listening to their story. It had me crying and laughing so many times. Their story was a roller coaster ride for sure. I like how interconnected Giana has this series because you still get to experience the other couples love in a new perspective. It also leaves off with the other books as far as what happens to the people of the fallen. I am really enjoying this series so far.

The narrators for this were really good and they made the experience that much better.

I Loved This Book

Nice and Lila met when she was six years old and he is eighteen years old. This is a age fan romance after all but don’t freak out becuse I told you the age difference and that they met so young. Now that Lila is grown and twenty four things for them begin to change. she had decided she’s carried these feelings long enough and is going to try her best to move on Nove though no matter how hard he tries to push her away just can’t commit to her actually going on with her life without him He doesn’t feel like he’s good enough for her and that broke my heart. So as you can see there’s a lot of angst going on but you and I know thing would be “normal” for these guys and these is suspense and things happening that have you on edge
I loved listening to this book I thought the narrators did an amazing job bringing it to life

Flower Child gets her man

If you're reading the Fallen MC series in order then you know Lila has always had a thing for Nova, the club smooth talking ladies' man. But what you don't know is that they've known each other and been friends since she was 5 years old.

Giana Darling takes the pacing back a bit coming off of After the Fall and set us the story of this little girl who seeing a teen boy moving in next door and immediately become enamored, but doesn't really know why. Her older brother and he become best friends and in turn she tags along to everything.

Weaving new players into the Ventura plot line, this is the sub plot that is really covered most in this book. We're taking further into Irina Ventura's illicit businesses and how they club is trying to be pinned as the bad guy for turning young women of Entrance to drugs.

I personally didn't love Aiden Snow for this character, his voice didn't carry the right amount of playfulness that I think Nova would carry. Stephanie Nemeth-Parker though was a really nice new voice to me for Lila, I enjoyed her male counter voice while her range for the variety of side characters didn't land just right for me, I'm not really going to count off for that - it's hard for even the most seasoned narrator.

Another amazing audiobook from Giana Darling!

This series just keeps getting better and better, and I truly think this is Giana Darling's best writing to date!! It comes as no surprise that this author can write like a poet, and her mix of tough, edgy and beautiful calls to my rocker girl soul!!!

I have been waiting for Nova's book ever since I first met him early on in The Fallen Men series...after all, he is the most gorgeous, charming "Casanova" of this group of biker men; and G Darling surpassed ALL of my expectations for his story. These characters were not new to me, but I had only seen glimpses of Lila before, and wasn't really sure how she & Nova were going to mix. But their story was EVERYTHING....heartbreaking, heartwarming, a tale of survival, mixed with the author's underlying premise throughout this series...live life to the fullest each and every day. Live free or die trying!!

I absolutely LOVED the past flashbacks to the younger years of Nova & Lila. Their story was told so well - how they became neighbors to friends to family, yet their relationship always held an underlying buzz of protectiveness and so much more. Their bond was immediate, and grew organically just as Lila's garden of flowers.

The author's metaphorical theme and use of flowers and tattoos throughout the story was brilliant! It is everything I love about fiction...where the rough meets the soft and fragile, and they combine to create an epic tale. And Nova & Lila's story is EPIC. I was addicted to each page, and highlighted so many poetic passages...not to mention some of Nova's dirty talk. ;) That man is H.O.T. It was hard not to fall for him from the beginning, and impossible not to cheer him on throughout. These two are one of my absolute favorite couples and I can't wait to see more of them in the next book in the series!! Well done once again G Darling!!

Audible Daydream...

Oh, this one was just ughh so heartbreaking and beautiful to listen.

I've forgotten how complex these main characters were, it has been a long time since I read the ebook and having the chance to listen those gutwrecthing words completely transformed the experience to a whole new level.

This one is a by far the angstiest of the series so far but OMG did I loved every single second of it!

Nova and Lila

I don't know why I put this off for as long as I did, but I'm kicking myself because this was just as great as everyone said it would be. Almost every book in this series has been a massive hit for me, because the writing is so good and I am a sucker for MC romances with angst. Add in to this the brother's best friend trope and the unrequited love..how could I possibly rate this any lower than 5 stars?? Nova and Lila do not have the best of starts but they nearly always have each other. It might have taken me a while (by my standard) to read this but it was worth every tear I shed reading it.

W.O.W

This is my favourite fallen men audible by far… I had already read the book a couple of times. Giana’s words are just fantastic. She is just so incredibly talented.
I find, when reading that I’m in such a rush to find what happens next that I don’t fully appreciate the genius of Giana.
Listening to it gives you the chance to fully immerse yourself in all that goodness.
Stephanie and Aiden did a 5 🌟 narration

+18 Dark MC Romance - age-gap, friends-to-lovers

Ugh this unrequited love has me on a chokehold! Lila and Nova are the best <3 Second time reading this read, thought to try out the audiobook and loved it! I had wanted to reread it but it is a chunky book so it was a whole new pleasure to listen to it instead.

5/5 ⭐️
3.5/5 🌶

- Taboo: age gap
- Taboo: foster brother/sister
- Friends-to-lovers
- years of unrequited love
- slowburn
- emotional AF
- spice is hottttt

Audio: dual narration. Well narrated.

Story:

This is book 5 in The Fallen Men series. While the books are of different couples, the books have an overarching plot and needs to be read in order to avoid any spoilers for the story line. (The first book in the series is 'Lessons in Corruption').

Lila and Nova are my absolute favourite couple. They are so right for each other and their romance I think is the most emotional one out of the rest of the series.
