Publisher's Summary

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 18 - 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 that lesson long ago.

Yet when she looks at me and says my name, I can't help but hope.

Stand-alone novel. No cliff-hanger. Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature listeners only. Not intended for young listeners.

Okay series...but...

I didn't dislike the series, but I did not exactly love it either. The thing that annoyed me mostly is the age of all these characters.
Every single one is under age for what is IMO logical in the storylines.
Storylines that began '4 or 5 years ago' when characters were 14 or 15 and then to 'now' when they are barely 20.
I am in no way saying that it isn't possible for some things to have happened as written - but to me it would be much easier to swallow if this group of friends were all 25 or so in the 'now'.
Also, no tattoo artist is going to be 18 or 19 and running his own shop. This is something that takes years of apprenticeship to learn and become licences for. (Fully tatted here...so trust me)

Narration was decent, but again these voices are NOT 19 or 20.

Overall if you can suspend your disbelief over parts it isn't a waste of time or credits.

Better than expected

I didn’t think I like this story but it was better than I expected. I cried and even laughed. There were dark parts but nothing ruined it. This author was new to me but won’t be my last. The narrators, Wow! They were fantastic! They made the story even better! I highly recommend!

First love... awwwww

Loved Tyler... what a great character... endured a very rough past ... for years... so be ready. A little difficult love story but it's all worth it. The story comes together quite nicely.

Ava and Teddy bring the characters to life in such a great way. They are simply awesome.

It's definitely worth the listen! Enjoy.

Tyler & Erin

OMG!! This story was so good. It was truly heartbreaking. It literally broke my heart at what Tyler went through. I dont know which brother, Ash or Tyler, had it the worst. They had a sucky father but in the end a HEA. The big surprise as to who Jax was surprised me. I dont know why it hadnt occured to me until it started unfolding. This story is definitely worth the time and credit or money.

2o somethings with damaged psyches

Really good stories, but these are kids. This story touches on Tyler, older brother of Asher and the issues they each dealt with from an alcoholic and abusive father. Tyler was in love with Erin before he was sent to his uncle to keep him safe from his dad. He didn't know that younger brother Asher would be their dad's next victim. He also didn't know that Erin had something important to tell him before he left. This entire series is about these kids who have had challenging and or abusive childhoods or grew up in the foster system and have been banded together by Zane, who is one of them. The story lines wouldn't really work for adults because as we mature the ways we deal with things change. It's a great series and you get invested in the characters even though they are so young. Triggers abound, so maybe not for everyone.

entertaining enough

This series should be called 'Everyone needs Therapy.'
Looots and lots of therapy.
But entertaining enough.

Not easy

Jo Raven is a really good writer and these books have really good stories
However this book was too long and kinda boring which is weird because I liked the story and the narrators
We are apparently living in a world where everyone self publishes and maybe we need book houses again simply for the editors
This book should have been a bit shorter
Too much depression too many hard-ons just advance the story please!
Having said that
I like this writer

Get ready for more depression, this one is harsh.

Trigger warning for child abuse.

Good Continuation

This was a good continuation with good narration I really wish the back and forth ended a little sooner and that Erin came clean a little earlier so we could see that dynamic work out but overall it's a good listen.
