Publisher's Summary

Four years have passed since I left home, my parents, and my brother Asher behind - since I shut out my past.

And Erin. Four years since I last saw her, since I heard her voice and held her in my arms. I've spent my time forging a path from woman to woman, from bed to bed, trying to find an answer. But I think I've lost my way. There's no light at the end of the dark.

No big surprise. I carry the dark inside me. I'm a bastard - branded as such from the start. I never give my phone number and address. I take my pleasure, and don't come back for seconds. No commitments, no promises, and no happy endings. Yeah, I'm a bastard down to the bone and I don't give a damn.

But now I'm back in my birth town, the town I fled at 18 - back to make amends to the brother I abandoned and watch from afar the only girl I've ever wanted. Hope isn't a currency I can afford. I learned that lesson long ago.

Yet when she looks at me and says my name, I can't help but hope.

Stand-alone novel. No cliff-hanger. Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature listeners only. Not intended for young listeners.

Okay series...but...

I didn't dislike the series, but I did not exactly love it either. The thing that annoyed me mostly is the age of all these characters.
Every single one is under age for what is IMO logical in the storylines.
Storylines that began '4 or 5 years ago' when characters were 14 or 15 and then to 'now' when they are barely 20.
I am in no way saying that it isn't possible for some things to have happened as written - but to me it would be much easier to swallow if this group of friends were all 25 or so in the 'now'.
Also, no tattoo artist is going to be 18 or 19 and running his own shop. This is something that takes years of apprenticeship to learn and become licences for. (Fully tatted here...so trust me)

Narration was decent, but again these voices are NOT 19 or 20.

Overall if you can suspend your disbelief over parts it isn't a waste of time or credits.

Better than expected

I didn’t think I like this story but it was better than I expected. I cried and even laughed. There were dark parts but nothing ruined it. This author was new to me but won’t be my last. The narrators, Wow! They were fantastic! They made the story even better! I highly recommend!

First love... awwwww

Loved Tyler... what a great character... endured a very rough past ... for years... so be ready. A little difficult love story but it's all worth it. The story comes together quite nicely.

Ava and Teddy bring the characters to life in such a great way. They are simply awesome.

It's definitely worth the listen! Enjoy.

I think this is my favourite so far!

The twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat with all the secrets etc. When the truth was revealed I literally gasped so loud. This one is probably my favourite book so far in the Inked Brothers series.

great story

This story was great but rough. the abuse dished out by their father was brutal to hear, but an essential part of the plot. I knew the ending would occur like it did, so that wasn't a shock but the events leading up to it were interesting. can't wait to find out what happens with the tat for the outside chick.

Good Series

I love the depth of these characters. I can relate to their childhoods. To see how far Tyler grows is amazing. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Maybe I’m too old for drawn-out drama

This story wasn’t bad, and maybe it’s the age grouping of the characters themselves, but I found myself getting frustrated and annoyed with the drawn-out drama of this story line. I almost turned it off three times, but I’m usually a finisher.

Wrap it up already!

another survivor... another love

if you haven't read this series yet, you should know that it straddles the line on angsty. Dark enough to bring you down just a touch but not enough to bring you to years. TRIGGERS: CHILD ABUSE. Tyler is Asher's brother from the previous book. He's back to make amends with his brother and to explain why he left. He also wants to see his ex again, if only just to see her. Erin is dealing with a lot, going to school full time, working and dealing with medical bills from her parents and herself. Money is tight and she is completely stressed. The night there's a gathering at Damaged, the brotherhood's tattoo shop is the night that Tyler and Erin see each other again for the first time in years. Here's what I loved about this story, Tyler's story is pretty bad and he had a valid reason for leaving and returning. Ash and Erin do not make it easy for him, especially his brother. Erin is no angel, she's got a secret as well and she holds onto it until the last possible second when she has ample opportunity to tell Tyler. Zane, their friend, does everything he can to bring everyone together and has decided that because he doesn't know Tyler well, he will back Erin because she's his friend Ava roommate. However, Zane never gives up on bringing them together to heal. Chemistry between Erin and Tyler is so hot that they can't keep their hands off of each other whenever in the same room. That being said, it felt like the author wanted to drag out the issues between the three right until the end because there was a lot of dodging. The plot twist is not really that much of a shocker, you'll be able to figure it out quickly so that was a bummer. Otherwise the book was really good.

A hidden gem of a series of books

I stumbled on this series of books when searching the plus catalogue and was pleasantly surprised really enjoyed every book would highly recommend but start with the kiss goodbye a prelude to Asher then on to each book in order as on each story they touch on all the characters lives throughout.

Great story but...

I enjoyed this story. However, there was one factor that had me dropping the rating, and it's my personal preference. But, the story itself was great.

SPOILER!!!






Erin was 15 and Tyler was 17, almost 18 (as described in the book) and they were s3ggsually active. Tyler talks about how they were 'together' and how she felt, moaned, etc. The girl was 15! He was practically 18! That's serious ick for me. Being together is one thing, but to have underage sex described is a no-no for me; I don't care if they're only a few years apart. She was still underage. My rating would've been higher if Erin hadn't have been so young.

A really good story well narrated

This is one of a series, but also a standalone.

Focusing on a group of friends, all with a damaged history, each book is of a particular member of the group and their love interest.
Good depth to the characters and an interesting storyline. Super 🔥 chemistry and well written, graphic sex scenes. Slightly surprised at that, as the characters are late teens/young adults, but I guess it’s actually pretty true to life these days. Well written nonetheless.
These two narrators do an excellent job with theses books and really bring them to life.

Definitely recommend 👍

Great story

I loved book 2, I’m really enjoying the inked brothers collection. I’m moving onto book 3 Zane. The boys need some happiness in their lives. The stories are relatable and will touch on some sensitive issues.

Prepare to loose yourself in many emotions

OMG! This story is so heartbreaking, I cannot imagine a child having to go through the unspeakable things Tyler experienced by hands of his Dad. I couldn't put the book down, it pulled at all my emotions. A brilliantly written story.

great story

this series is definitely a better write than the series I began to read starting with Micah.
it has some pretty intense situations and themes and the heroes suffer more so than the girls. It seems it's Ms Ravens theme, which I enjoy as there are a lot of books I've listened to where the heroine is in crisis.
it's pretty raw but doesn't get so deep as to wrench my guts out but I held my breath here and there. Asher had some bad times. but Ms Raven manages to go one more with Tyler. I'm really wondering how Zane goes?
Asher was a long slow burn whereas Tyler moved at a quicker pace...I really Enjoyed listening to this.
loved the narrator's and I'm more excited to see one of my favourite male narrators is Zane.
