At fourteen, Audrey has the perfect life: great parents, great buddies, and her best friend, Asher. Only lately Asher has begun to change. He seems distant and standoffish, ignoring Audrey.
Not all of the changes are bad. He's growing from a pretty boy into a handsome man, and Audrey is all too aware of that. But if they cross the line from friends to something more, will things stay the same or will she lose her best friend forever?
This is not an erotic story. It is the prequel to the events that unfold in "Asher" and set up many of the characters of the Inked Brotherhood Series.
His handsome face, blue eyes, and strong physique can fool anyone into believing he's a good man.
My loyalty to my family makes me despise him.
But I also can't stop thinking about him.Thinking about his kiss.
But then Grace comes along and all bets are off. Her touch feels so damn good I get the urge to wrap my arms around her, but I worry that I might hurt this sweet girl like a clumsy Frankenstein. If I can do one thing for her, it would be staying far, far away.
This novelette is a short prequel to BEAUTIFUL RUIN. It includes an excerpt of the first chapter of BEAUTIFUL RUIN (a standalone novel.)
