Publisher's Summary

At 23, Poe Montgomery is going nowhere. He still lives in his father’s basement and spends most of his time tagging with his friends. When an arrest lands him in debt, Poe accepts the front desk job at Permanent Ink, the tattoo shop owned by his father’s best friend, Jericho McAslan. Jericho is nearly twice Poe’s age, but with his ink and prematurely graying hair, he quickly takes the starring role in Poe’s hottest fantasies.

Jericho is known for his ability to transform poorly designed tattoos into works of art, but he was once as aimless and misdirected as Poe. Wanting to pay it forward the way someone once did for him, Jericho makes Poe his apprentice and is determined to keep things strictly professional. Easier said than done when Poe makes his interest - and his daddy kink - abundantly clear.

Jericho can’t resist Poe or their intense chemistry for long. But between the age gap, tension with Poe’s father, and Poe’s best friend calling him a sellout, they’ll need to ensure they’re both on the same page before they can rewrite their rocky start into something permanent.

Awesome narration and wonderfull story!

Been waiting forever for something new from Kirt Graves, I just love his voice and I keep repeting his other work over and over, so now I got something new to entertain myself with!
Im not usually into Daddy/Boy kink, but it wasnt bad in this one, really liked the story and the sex were really hot, Kirt Graves only added to it and made this an entertaining and fun book! Liked how the charachters grow over time and accept themself and stand up for there dreams even when things get rough! Joe and Jericho are perfect for each other and I really enjoyed listening to there story! Hope to get more from these authours in the future!

the narrator save the story

for me the story was a bit iffy. I enjoyed the point of view from Poe side more than Jethros side. I also preferred the narration that he did for Poe over any of the other characters.
As for the story it wasn't the best I've heard wasn't the worst I've heard. I am intrigued and would like to see more from author about Blue and his story.

Really good story

Permanent ink is about a troubled boy name Poe. He still lives at home with his dad. His dad has had to bail him out of jail because of his behavior. His fathers best friend Jericho owns a tattoo shop, and is willing to give Poe a job. Jericho is a lot older then Poe, but sparks fly anyway. Permanent ink was very well written, and I can’t wait to read more books by both authors . As for the narrator, he did a good job, I just wasn’t crazy about him

Absolutely fantastic

What to say about this audiobook. First of all the story and characters were enthralling the writers really did their homework and wrote thoughtfully about art and the type of artists portrayed in the book. These are three dimensional people that are passionate and strong. I have to mention the narrator . I have heard him before and loved his portrayal of the characters he is so rich, intense and sensitive . Honestly it was the combo of story and narrator that made me fall in love with this story. The book had some hot and yummy moments done in a way that enhanced the story. I’m pretty sure I know what the next book will be about and hope that they release an audiobook with the same narrator. Highly recommend.

Excellent

This was such a surprisingly enjoyable book. While generally a fan of Piper Vaughn, I've never read anything by Avon Gail. Moreover, I tend to avoid stories with age gaps when the younger person seems stuck in perpetual adolescence and I especially avoid them when Daddy kinks are involved, but I’m glad I took a chance with this one. The characters, their development and the flow of the story were so well done and engaging that I couldn’t help but eventually root for Poe even though I usually have a hard time connecting with characters like him, which speaks to the skill of the writing. Between the vibrancy of the characters and a story full of compassion, frustration and bratty, flirty fun, “Permenant Ink” definitely leaves its mark.

Maybe it's not the story.... but beware

This is one of those stories that had me both really involved and somewhat frustrated. I think the writers did a terrific job of “moving”me – meaning I definitely “felt” something – which is at least part of what writing is supposed to do.

I thought the characters, the premise, the cover!, the sexual tension and the art were all amazing and really well-done.

We’ve got an older guy and a punk and some serious artistic talent all mixed together. When you add in the fact that the punk’s father is the other MC’s friend… yeah. Serious tension!


For me, where things started to move away from “Awesome!” to “Hmmmm” – was how the two MCs interacted. Some people really like the “Daddy” kink but I’m not one of them. It wasn’t overplayed here and definitely wasn’t “awful” but it was definitely a main part of the story. The balance of power was never equal (IMHO) and despite the fact that the authors (bravely) called attention to it – the fact that Jericho acted like Poe’s dad then fucked him hard never felt good or remotely romantic.

While it may have gained momentum had the story continued on, Poe and Jericho’s relationship never gained enough strength for me to feel good about it going the distance – long term. Poe had a “miraculous” personality change and began toeing the line, Jericho wanted to have sex with him and did, somewhere along the line they declared their love. I didn’t see the actual love really manifest or develop.

I really wish we’d gotten to see more of Poe and his art – separate from the tattooing and Jericho. I really felt like he bowed to the dictates of Jericho and Landon and more or less put it aside for something more “grown up” despite all his protestations and the fact that he clearly loved it.


So, while I was absolutely involved in the story and I thought the writing was great, overall the romance didn’t work for me. I thought there was some great sexual chemistry, some interesting character development and some fascinating art but I wasn’t convinced the relationship was the “forever” kind. That being said, it’s still an entertaining story and definitely worth exploring – but I’d read some reviews to make sure you’re getting what you want for your money.

I thought Kirt Graves was a good choice of narrator for this. His voice quality and tone as well as the “acting” he does fit the mood of the story and the characters well. He definitely added to the overall experience.

Great!

I loved this story. Poe and Jericho had an unusual relationship, since Jericho was Poe's boss and also his father's best friend. There were moments that I felt that Poe was acting too immature or that Jericho was acting too fatherly, but the characters felt this way themselves and corrected their attitudes. The daddy kink was fun, and the information about tagging and tattooing were fascinating to me. I wanted to slap Poe's friend Blue then hug him. I really liked Poe and Jericho, and the authors made sure I understood them. I felt that the major secondary characters were well also well developed. I hope to see book 2 sometime soon!
The narrator's performance was excellent. I've listened to him before and will happily do so again.

Ooh! Check this one out!

Kirt Graves does such amazing narration! I had not read this story by Piper and Avon, but I think listening to it is the way to go!

I adored Jericho so much in this book. His demeanor and way of thinking is amazing. He is no nonsense, but helpful and caring. He is exactly what Poe needs. And Poe is good for Jericho too! Poe is a twenty something who loves older men and daddy kink. And let me tell you, Jericho is definitely a daddy. But, it wasn’t just about the kink that made these two work. It was having someone who sees the other as the one who completes them and pushes them to see more. Age gap is one of my favorites and these two authors did it well.
I’m thinking the next one is going to be Calum, who stayed me! And Blue? I hope so anyway. Also I want more of Landon! ;)

overall great

while there is some daddy kink it was only touched upon with name calling but not overly fetishised so could be enjoyed by those who don't find that floats their boat (such as myself). you get what you expect from the blurb. the relationship was believable and I'm intrigued what will happen next.
the performance could sometimes lie flat but not often and was overall well done.
