Genre: Contemporary Romance, Coming of Age
Pages: 303

Now eighteen, Audrey returns to her hometown for the first time after the accident - the car crash that took her dad and scarred her for life.  She's here to start again.  Go to college and have fun.  Make new friends.  Get over the past.
            But the past won't let go.  Asher is here - her first kiss, her first heartbreak.  More handsome and distant than ever, he's still the boy who used to be her best friend.  That was before he changed into someone she hardly knows anymore - the boy who started getting into fights and gave her the cold shoulder for years.
            Asher isn't what she needs.  In fact, she hates him and should try her best to keep away from him.  Yet her body doesn't seem to care about how she feels, and maybe, just maybe this time her body got it right.  Not that she has much of a choice.  Asher draws her like a bright flame, and if she isn't careful, she'll burn.
            And that may not be such a bad thing after all ...

Note: This is New Adult erotic romance, dual POV.  **Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence.  Mature readers only.  Not intended for young adult readers.**

Inked Brotherhood 2:
By: Jo Raven

Publication date: 7.21.2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Coming of Age
Pages: 329

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 eighteen - 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 the lesson long ago.  Yet when she looks at me and says my name, I can't help but hope.

Note: This is book 2 in the Inked Brotherhood series which started with Asher.  It's a stand-alone work.  No cliffhanger.

Inked Brotherhood 3:
By: Jo Raven

Publication date: 10.24.2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Coming of Age
Pages: 269

They call me Zen-man, the cool-headed one, the protector.  I keep an eye out for everyone, taking them in, finding them homes.  They think I'm the calm and collected one, the self-assured one, the one who knows the way.  They think they see me.  They think they know me.
            But they're all wrong, because inside I'm broken.  I have a jagged hole in my soul I can't fix, a festering blackness.  I've been to the pits of hell and nobody comes back unscathed.  Life in foster care fucked me up, and now a thread is all that's holding me together.
            So I sleep around and never date, keeping chicks away.  One day I'll snap, and when I do, there's no telling who I might take down with me.
            All the same, there's this one girl who won't be scared away.  Dakota.  She's hot and I won't deny I want her.  But she keeps coming back, pushing me, trying to get me to talk, to open up to her.
            She has no idea she's playing with fire.  When the demons come, she'd better be far away from me, just like everyone else.

Note: This is book 3 in the Inked Brotherhood series.  It's a stand-alone work.  No cliffhanger.
