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.

This story never gets old

This was the second time that I’ve got to enjoy this story. This time around it was through audible. It was an amazing (butterfly - feel) experience. Both narrators were amazing!

Loooonnng Audiobook

I'd never read this author before. This is the first of this series I'd read and was glad that Giana decided to intersperse the characters and conflict from previous books in this series into this standalone. It was easier to follow. I listened to this audiobook on 2.5 x speed and fast-forwarded throughout several sections that seemed to be repetitive. I like a good MC novel/series, but this was just MEH!

Pros: interesting backstories, Dane and Lila's familial story interconnected with Nova and the Booth family were intriguing, Aiden Snow's voice was a good narrator for Nova - when we got to hear it, HEA was good, the age difference wasn't too stark, glad I didn't invest in the whole series

Cons: similar storylines to other MC novels I've read, Stephanie Nemeth-Parker was a new narrator to me and not a convincing young Lila, way too long of a novel with sooooo much push-pull angst between Lila and Nova, lots of internal dialogue from the characters, not enough of Aiden Snow's narration

Spending credits on series such as these have to be weighed against how much one book can pull you in, coax a person into to giving it a chance and continue with the other books. Sorry, but this is a one-and-done for me.

A favorite in the Fallen Men series!

I loved this book so much!

Nova and Lila were the sweetest, hottest, best thing ever and I could not get enough of them! Being back with the entire Fallen Men family was just everything I was missing and I loved seeing them all in Entrance again so much! Getting to see Zeus and his family again, ugh I just love them all so much. Lila is just 5 when she meets Nova, her new neighbor’s son. He becomes fast friends with her older brother, being 12 years older than her, but becomes a sort of protector to young Lila. His family ends up taking in both Lila and her older brother when their lives get out of control, becoming their foster family. Since Nova is so much older than Lila they barely ever live in the same house and don’t get together as more until she’s 23 and he’s 35. And the angst and caretaking and love between these 2 is just everything! I loved how he tattooed her for years, calls her “Flower Child”, and just all the shared history between them. I love Lila’s friendship with Harleigh Rose over the years and Zeus caring and protecting her too. This whole family is just so special.

“Because damn him for loving me like that, so much, but platonically. Always platonically. How could a girl ever be expected to move on from a man who would do anything to keep her safe? He planted flowers all over my body, inside the cage of my ribs, in the fertile soil of my heart, yet he never noticed how they bloomed just for him.”

Inked in Lies❤️

Oh my goodness everything about this book was such a good surprise❣️ The narration was so good, Aiden Snow is on my top 5 favorite male narrators & SNP was also good. In my humble opinion this was second best to Lethal(book 2 of this series)sorry but Lethal made me cry and this book made my eyes misty. The book is filled with suspense, sadness, sex, many angsty moments, love, so many mixed emotions but most importantly to me an HEA❣️ Is it worth the credit? Fuck Yeah!😉Enjoy!🎧

Beyond Amazing

Giana Darling, you’ve done it again. The love story between Dane and his sister Lila, the love story between Dane, Jonathan and Lila and the ultimate love story between Lila and Jonathan was beyond intense and beautiful. Love like this is never ending and something that we all want but don’t always get. This book pulls you in to the point that you forget about everything else. This is a must read book!

Best in the series!!!

Ok, so I've read 3 in the series so far and not in order. but this has been the best by far! The trauma, the hope, the SEX! This one was different than the other too. Not so much hard-core lust, which there was, but endearing love. I'm a sucker for the bad boy brooding torment that Nova exudes. How they came together and it was so innocent and stayed that way for a long time. SO much happens but it was all peiced together so perfectly. the Epilogue and bonus epilogue were perfection. A glorious end to a masterpiece of Lila and Nova's love. Definite must read/listen! You won't be disappointed

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.
