Publisher's Summary

Meet the Damage Control boys - set in the world of the best-selling series Inked Brotherhood.

There's me: Micah Owens. Tattoo artist at Damage Control. No parents or siblings. A past that still gives me nightmares.

And then there's her: Evangeline, the girl who saved my life and haunts my more pleasant dreams. Only she doesn't know who I really am, and telling her might well send her fleeing for the hills. She deserves better than a loser like me. She's pretty. She's clever. She's goddamn sexy and has a heart of gold.

Which is why I can't tell her. A smile from her and I'll do all I can to make her mine - including pretending to be someone I'm not, someone worth having.

Isn't love weird?

Note: This is a stand-alone novel. No cliff-hanger.

Warning: This audiobook contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature listeners only. Not intended for young listeners.

🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤 Sooooooo goooood.

I think Tad's narration has a lot to do with making listening to this so enjoyable. He is becoming a fast fave for his performances. Also, this story is hot, sweet, touching, and gets me in the feels. 🥰 It also touches on the lasting psychological effects of being in the foster system and homelessness; the unconscious drive to feel loved and accepted for some.

It was ok...

The story line was ok, a little generic but ok. I struggled to finish the book several times but wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt. The abundance of sex scenes was a little much. I guess at my point in life I'm looking for something with a little more substance.

Great story, love Erin Mallon

I really enjoyed listening to this book. I have listened to a ton of audiobooks and do not usually write a review. I only wanted to say that I can relate to the damage and difficulty these people have in their lives and it is nice to be able to read a romance and true love story that started off with some really shitty lives and tough breaks. It was a breath of fresh air and great to see a hea with a crappy start. I love Jo Raven’s writing and Erin Mallon’s male voice is amazing.

It was torture

This story had a good plot. But good god, I wanted to reach down their throats and rip the words out. The constant self doubting inner monologue was torture. “I love you” “does he want me” “she won’t show up” “he’s gonna breakup with me”
It was so frustrating I’m surprised I made it to the end. Then the extra novella at the end was just more of the same.
If it wasn’t for Tad this would have been a 1 star for sure.

Fantastic

I was searching Erin Mallon because she is my all time favorite narrator and stumbled across the Damage control series. I didnt know what to expect but it was a fablous read/listen and I really enjoyed the story line! Im excited to read the rest of the series (even though Erin is not narrating) im sure it will be just as good as Micah.

Great story!

This audiobook had great characters, a well thought out and engaging plot and lots of emotion. I liked the character of Micah and the narrator for him was perfect. The character of Ev was also well done. She was a rather insecure character at first, but came into her own through interaction with Micah. I'm looking forward to the next book in series coming out on audiobook as well!

WRONG CHOICE FOR MALE NARRATOR

The Mail narrator, while likely a nice person, sounds like a 40 or 50-year-old computer support technician -- just not at all the right voice for such a young character. The female narrator was well casted.

I don't think so

I tried this author mostly because Erin Mallon was the narrator but even she could not perform magic with this book. Honestly I must admit I couldn't even finish.

An Okay Story

I was not totally invested in this story, I, however, kept listening because of the connection with the Candy Boys series, a series, I enjoyed. The narrators were okay, not as I have grown to expect. Tad Branson needs to improve his female version to start with and I really like him as him

Great storyline

This storyline is quite emotional. With real world issues it deals with homelessness and being kind. With a heart of gold people can make the difference. Great performance.

DNF. Good Narration though

I couldn't get into the storyline at all. The characters weren't relatable in any way and it seemed like the MCs had the worst group of friends/family with no respect for boundaries under the guise of being worried and wanting to help.
Both narrators did a really good job.

Captivating story

A brilliant start to the series, I can tell that the rest of the books in the series will be fantastic. This story is so captivating, it makes me feel so many emotions I could not put it down. Brilliant narration.

hmm way too much miscommunication

this is a first listen to this author and I confess I chose it for Erin and Tad and without them, I think the book would have failed for me.
I was hesitant because i thought it may be more YA than mature age but I gave it a go. it was too young for me. the story was really drawn out with a tonne of 2nd guessing, interruptions and afraid to tell the truth moments. which frustrated me no end. there was a lot of uncertainty and mistrust at foot with both H and H ...more so Micah. his background makes that understandable and plausible.
I thhougt Ev was going to be woosy but while she was timid and afraid she had an underlying courage that moved this book along.
all in all the age of these characters gave the writer freedom to create this style. there was a good but of steam in here so that pops the book up a level but I have read similar storylines that have older characters with more history behind them which gives a depth to the plotline that I guess is missing here
I love series novels and would like to continue but I'm worried about the same drawn out type of writing occurring again.
I liked the story and it brings the other players in that indeed have their own tale to tell but I'm stalling with lack of depth due to the age of the characters.
Also the editing got a bit confusing. Chapter 14 sounded like the intro of the book then went to erin's voice explaining 2 months had gone by and Micah still had not opened up.
Then chapter 17 starts with a prologue to ambers story???? Hmmmm
