Publisher's Summary

Meet the Damage Control boys - set in the world of the best-selling series Inked Brotherhood.

There's me: Micah Owens. Tattoo artist at Damage Control. No parents or siblings. A past that still gives me nightmares.

And then there's her: Evangeline, the girl who saved my life and haunts my more pleasant dreams. Only she doesn't know who I really am, and telling her might well send her fleeing for the hills. She deserves better than a loser like me. She's pretty. She's clever. She's goddamn sexy and has a heart of gold.

Which is why I can't tell her. A smile from her and I'll do all I can to make her mine - including pretending to be someone I'm not, someone worth having.

Isn't love weird?

Note: This is a stand-alone novel. No cliff-hanger.

Warning: This audiobook contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature listeners only. Not intended for young listeners.

5 Walking Stick Stars!!!!!

STORY: In meeting Micah, he has been in one foster care after another, and he has been homeless. He is taken in by Zane, whom you would have met in the other series "Inked Brotherhood" by the same author, and has been working at being a tattoo artist. With his background, he has had a hard, hard life. One day on the streets, he is being helped by this sweet and kind lady. Fast forward and he is no longer on the streets and he sees her again...she being Evangeline (Ev). Micah doesn't feel like he's worthy of her at all, and when they meet again, she doesn't remember him. But he has fallen head-over-heels in love with her. He wants her and that's that. Ev is scared, though, when she meets his roommate, Seth. She remembered Seth from being on the streets. Micah has no idea why she is sooo scared of Seth, and Ev is very hesitant in telling him. They both keep their secrets close. Ev doesn't tell him why she's scared, and Micah doesn't tell her who he is and that he knows her. When they finally reveal them, can they both accept the other and their past? Will they be able to move forward together? And also, who is out to get who?

NARRATION: OMG!!! Tad Branson and Erin Mallon!!! I was soooo excited to see this narration partnership again. I love their narrating chemistry. I have loved it since "Mr. Romantic" by JA Huss and loved it here, too! Tad Branson (TB)--I should know by now that TB picks characters--or someone picks them for him--and those characters are dark and deep and sorta twisty, not in a bad way but in a great way, AND he can deliver said character flawlessly! Micah is pretty down on himself, doesn't feel like he's worth anything, and is waiting for Ev to just drop him any second...life experiences and all that dragging him down hard. TB makes you feel that line for line, word for word, with every expressive breath of anger and frustration. When TB talks about Micah's love for Ev, it is passionate. There are certain moments, too, that TB is quiet when you think he'll go loud and vice-versa...and it makes it that much more impactful. Absolutely love his narration!!! Erin Mallon (EM)--EM is a great narrator and a great partner to TB's rough narration and helps smooth it all out. Ev is a soft, so sweet and kind (her help with the homeless, awwww to the max!!!!) person, and EM portrays that so well. EM's guy voice is so well done too, and probably Top 5 female narrator's guy voice for sure. Love this duo, again, and hope to hear more from them in future!

CREDIT WORTHY: I think so. I don't think you have to read the "Inked Brotherhood" series before this "Damage Control" series starts, as I didn't. But, I think it would probably add to it. I'm reading out of order, lol, but I still enjoy the storylines and characters.

Great story, love Erin Mallon

I really enjoyed listening to this book. I have listened to a ton of audiobooks and do not usually write a review. I only wanted to say that I can relate to the damage and difficulty these people have in their lives and it is nice to be able to read a romance and true love story that started off with some really shitty lives and tough breaks. It was a breath of fresh air and great to see a hea with a crappy start. I love Jo Raven’s writing and Erin Mallon’s male voice is amazing.

I don't think so

I tried this author mostly because Erin Mallon was the narrator but even she could not perform magic with this book. Honestly I must admit I couldn't even finish.

Great story!

This audiobook had great characters, a well thought out and engaging plot and lots of emotion. I liked the character of Micah and the narrator for him was perfect. The character of Ev was also well done. She was a rather insecure character at first, but came into her own through interaction with Micah. I'm looking forward to the next book in series coming out on audiobook as well!

WRONG CHOICE FOR MALE NARRATOR

The Mail narrator, while likely a nice person, sounds like a 40 or 50-year-old computer support technician -- just not at all the right voice for such a young character. The female narrator was well casted.
