Publisher's Summary

Former Marine, Trent Reed, is in desperate need of a Hail Mary.

With each failed attempt to convince his woman to pack up and move to Kentucky, his past finds some new way to rear its ugly head. But when his pregnant ex plows into his life, all hell breaks loose - unearthing parts of his past he wished would stay buried.

Two weeks of vacation with her man? Hell yeah, that is exactly what Teal Lofton's libido needs. And after surviving seven months apart, their reunion doesn't disappoint. What she didn't account for was an unfortunate encounter with people from Trent's past. A racist, a druggie, and a double-barreled shotgun, culminate into a vacation that will alter the course of her life forever.

    "Hottest book ever"

    Let me just say this book was Awesome. This author has to write the best sex scenes I have ever heard (and I am reader of romance). This was a well written story with a storyline I haven't heard before. Well worth the credit.

    I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!

    Any additional comments?

    I didn't listen to book one of the Teal and Trent series but I listened to Incarcerated which is the book that introduced the two. The first chapter in this book was a bit jarring without having that book one listen but I got caught up after a chapter or two.

    What a great listen this was! The twists and turns of this story were many. Trent is my new faux boyfriend, faults and all. I did not like the way the narrator voiced Teal but he knocked Trent and Logan out of the park!!!!

    I loved that Logan and Katie (from Incarcerated) were still part of the story. There was a lot more sex in this listen than I'm usually comfortable with but it worked with the story progression. There is quite a lot to like about this listen and I highly recommend it.

    Story
    "Trent and Teal are unforgettable!"

    Indelible: Beneath His Ink by Inger Iverson, is unlike most books I have read. The problems that are presented in this story are realistic and captivated my interest. It was filled with suspense, combustible chemistry and told a tale about two unique characters from vastly different backgrounds coming together. There are many twists and turns in the plot that kept me wanting to know what would happen next.

    Trent is a hard working man who is trying to make up from his past. He is a man from the south and has been immersed in that culture
    his entire life. Though he doesn’t believe the ways many around him do, he had to walk a fine line at times to fit in.

    Teal is a strong woman of color. She is from Vermont and is trying to decide if she should move to the south to be with the man she loves. The culture is vastly different from what she is used to, but he makes up for the differences. What she doesn't expect is for his past to haunt him when she arrives.

    PS - The audio version of this book only enhanced Inger Iverson's work. I am new to Michael Pauley as a narrator, but it will not be my last from him. His performance kept my interest as well.

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    "Excellent"

    I went into this audio not having listened to book 1 and I kind of wish I had but it was not necessary at all. I just really want to know more about Trent and Teal.

    This book deals with everything real. It's difficult and sometimes uncomfortable but the entire book I kept thinking that Inger Iversen did such a brilliant job at portraying the most real and intense relationship. Trent and Teal were such a unique couple and their chemistry was off the charts. Unfortunately love doesn't ensure an easy path and Trent and Teal had quite a few speed bumps along the way.

    I loved the romance and hot, hot love between T and T. Inger can definitely write her some steamy scenes!

    Michael Pauley was such a great choice for this book. I admit it took me about 5 minutes to adjust to his narration but after that, it was smooth sailing and he locked me in for the entire book. I loved it.

    Worth a credit? Most definitely. If I could do it again, I would listen to book 1 first even though this stands alone, I just want more of Trent and Teal and listening to book 1 first would have given me more time to obsess over them.

    "This Series Keeps Getting Better!"

    Indelible - Beneath His Ink, starts with Trent and Teal having been apart for months, Teal decides to take some time off work and head down to Kentucky to see her man.

    Trent’s on a mission to make sure Teal's trip becomes permanent, but Trent’s small town in Kentucky is not particularly welcoming of interracial relationships and our couple has their work cut out for them because Trent has had his own issues with race in the past.

    If only Trent’s pesky and messy former life would just stay in the past, life would be great. But, life’s not that simple and Trent gets it from all sides when he starts to squire Teal around his hometown.

    Soon his ex-girlfriend and his racist former running buddies, try to put the kibosh on Trent and Teals budding relationship. But neither Trent or Teal are going down without a fight!

    This audiobook is fantastic! Inger Iversen writing style is raw and gritty, some may find it uncomfortable, but I find it “real” and I enjoy that aspect. If the character’s she’s writing about are racist pieces of trash, then that’s exactly how Inger’s going to write them. There’s no sugarcoating going on here!

    Indelible is an erotic listen, so expect sex and plenty of it, but it’s also a dark thriller so be prepared for elements of domestic abuse, violence, sexual assault and coarse language in this well-told story!

    Indelible is the second book in the Trent and Teal story, I’m pleased Inger Iversen is taking her time and building the backstory of Trent and Teal saga, there’s so much to explore in Trent’s past!

    It’s not necessary to read or listen to Inevitable, the first book in their story, but I highly suggest it and the book that starts this series Incarcerated, all are available on audio.

    Michael Pauley narrates and I’m so glad he took over from the first books in this series! His voice is better suited to the story and he does an excellent job with the southern dialect, his pacing was perfect and he exuded the right amount of emotion in this audiobook.

    I'm impressed with the Michael Pauley's narrating skills and I’m sure his star will continue to rise!

    This audiobook was gifted to me exchange for an unbiased review!

    "This was not an easy story in the slightest"
    Any additional comments?

    Right off, I'll address the narration: AWESOME. Michael Pauley has such a spectacular voice; seeing that he narrated this one was half the reason I asked to review a copy of this audiobook.

    The other reason I was drawn to this book was I KEPT HEARING ABOUT IT. I knew going in that this was NOT your average romance. I knew going in that there were elements that would make me uncomfortable. I was told that Inger's writing style would be different than anything I've seen before. All true.

    Now I didn't start with book 1 and I wonder if that would have given me a stronger attachment to the characters. At first, some of their actions (okay, really Trent's early life choices. WOW.) - I just had a really, really difficult time connecting. I wanted to like him but it was a struggle. I never want the heroine to find a better hero than the one that is trying to woo her... but I kept thinking, Teal. This isn't worth it...

    But it is to Teal. Annnd in the end, Trent proves he's not messing around. He loves Teal with everything he's got and he does the best he can to correct situations set in motion because of his past. But showing Teal how much he cares about her? That saved the story for me.

    I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    First, wonderful narration by Michael Pauley. Although this series has dual POV, I feel the masculine voice as the dominant story-teller.

    Perfect ending for Trent and Teal. Full of raw emotion, hard truths and high obstacles. Oh, and emotional hot sex! We see a resolution beginning between Trent and Harper that will hopefully come to full circle in the next book.

    TWO BIG THUMBS UP!

    "Narrators can make all the difference"
    Any additional comments?

    I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. Right off the bat I can say I am enjoying this audiobook so much better than book 1 thanks to the narrator, Michael Pauley. The story still doesn't flow as smooth as I would like, but the performance from the narrator helps to compensate any lacking in the character development and story-line. I hope Inger Iversen continues to use Michael Pauley for her future audiobooks, because his performance in this third book of her series is night and day from the first two narrators who were lacking his staying powerful performance.

    "Wow! Michael Pauley"

    This was the second book in a series and I was a little lost at times but it was still a great story. This was the first time i listened to Michael Pauley but you can definitely add him to your list of narrators that do not disappoint. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Raw and Powerful"
    Would you listen to Indelible: Beneath His Ink again? Why?

    The story was intense from the very beginning. We learn who Trent is right away. Though he has a past that isn't anything he'd like to brag about, he is working to overcome that past and make his life better. It's such a coming of age story for a grown man, raw and emotional.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Indelible: Beneath His Ink?

    One of the first most memorable moments was the bar scene when he punch Jake in the face for messing with his woman. He was working so hard not to see color but it was so difficult when everyone around him kept pointing it out, every time they referred to Teal.


    What about Michael Pauley’s performance did you like?

    Fantastic. His inflections and vocal changes made the difference between character voices obvious. I could almost see what the people looked like by listening to his voice. He fed the vocals humor when necessary and hesitations when the moment called for them. Other than a mispronounced word or two, and I'm not sure those weren't written into the original manuscript, I thought he did an excellent job of differentiating between the characters. He has a wonderfully smooth and convincing voice.
