Meet OCEAN, the newest of the Damage Control Boys, set in the world of the bestselling series Inked Brotherhood. This is New Adult Contemporary Romance.

I thought I was a normal kid once. Do normal kids have to beg door to door for food? Not sure. It wasn’t always that bad, I guess—and then it was. Really fucking bad.

I tried to protect my younger brother from the fallout. Lied to him about how bad things were.

But it wasn’t enough. And when the accident happened, he blamed me, like everyone else.

I’m guilty of many things. He’s right about that, at least. So damn guilty I’m sure everyone knows and will call me out on it.

Except they don’t. Nobody does, except my brother.

Not even Kayla, sexy and sweet and coolest girl ever, who keeps buying me coffee and trying to read my future. But my future isn’t in the goddamn cards, or even in my hands. I don’t see a future. I deny fate, but fate has me pinned like a moth and won’t let me walk away.

Won’t let me escape.

And yeah… you know you’re losing grip when the girl you want reads your palm, and you’re scared to hell of what she’ll see and of the pain you can tell is coming.

OCEAN is book 5 in the series Damage Control - a series set in the same world as Inked Brotherhood. The boys of Damage Control were taken in by Zane Madden and Rafe Vestri and offered apprenticeship and work in the tattoo shop Damage Control.

Meet the Damage Control Boys - set in the world of the bestselling series Inked Brotherhood. New Adult Contemporary Romance.

Returning to Madison hurts. I thought I’d left my past behind, but the past goes on living. I carry it inside of me, it’s a piece of me. People have marked me in indelible ways and I drag the shreds of my soul behind me, trying to put my pieces back together. I’m not the Amber I used to be. I fly under the radar, try to be invisible.

It doesn't always work. Drawing attention scares me. It always spells trouble. Returning to my home town is a last ditch effort to lay my demons to rest and start anew, for good this time.

Meeting Jesse Lee wasn’t in the plan. Yet here he is with his heart-stopping, sexy grin, handsome like a god, shining bright. He’s full of life, full of heat, packing the energy of a thousand suns in his gaze and muscular body. Jesse burns, and the pain of being near him is sweet.

But he’s foiling my plans. It’s hard to remain a ghost when he’s around. Hard to avoid his attention, to remain invisible. He sees me, really sees me, and behind his bright radiance, I can see shadows from his own past crowding in. He’s swimming hard to stay afloat even as he reaches for me.

What is he afraid of? And how can he save me from drowning when he can’t even save himself?

*Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature readers only. Not intended for young readers.*

Meet SHANE, the newest of the Damage Control Boys, set in the world of the bestselling series Inked Brotherhood. This is New Adult Contemporary Romance. 

Once upon a time, my life was good. I had a family, I had a girlfriend, and hopes for the future. That was long ago, but I remember it. A hazy dream of what could have been. 

That’s gone now. I lost it all. Life fucked me over, and now I’m scared of my own damn shadow. 

I’m training to be a tattoo artist, but I bet I’m not good enough. I have a roof over my head, but every morning I’m scared shitless that I’ll find myself on the street again – or worse, back in prison. 

And every time a pretty girl looks at me, every single fucking time, I know I can’t be with her. Not only because she’ll find out I’m an ex-con and run the other way, no. It’s more than that. I just can’t. The thought of anyone touching me, the thought of getting aroused from that touch brings back every damn nightmare from my past to swallow me whole. 

Can’t fucking do it. 

Not even if it’s the prettiest girl on earth – Cassie. With her long blond hair and her pretty tits, her short skirts and high heels, she’s all my fantasies rolled into one. See, the fact she kissed one of my buddies? That’s good. The fact she looks at me like I’m a bug under her shoe? Even better. 

Because it means she’s not interested in getting hot and sweaty with me, and that I can keep living that fantasy. 

The fantasy that she wants to be with me as much as I want to be with her – even though I know it will never happen.
