“When the broken man with scarred skin walked into Heathens, asked for a job, and showed me a sketch of a phoenix, it felt like fate.” – Adam
It started with an anonymous post by someone who didn’t want to live anymore. I read it over and over again, unable to get it out of my mind. What if my brother Johnny had posted something like this before he’d taken his own life? Would someone have been able to save him?
I’ve been living a lie for 16 long years, and I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to keep it up. And when a beautiful, broken man walks into my tattoo shop asking for a second chance at life, I know I’ll never be able to turn him away.
“When I was so far down I couldn’t even see the light, a stranger reached in to save me.” – Nox
I didn’t have anything to live for, until a kind stranger pulled me back from the brink. With physical and emotional scars, I have nowhere to turn now but to that same stranger who saved my life without realizing it. But as my feelings for Adam grow, will I ever be anything other than a surrogate for the brother he couldn’t save? Am I even worthy of his love?
**From Ashes is the third book in the Heathens Ink series, each book in the series CAN be read as a standalone.
CAUTION: this book contains graphic descriptions of domestic violence and drug use that may be disturbing to some readers.
I really liked Nox and Adam. Their romance was really good. Adam and Nox are really good together. Nox has really low self esteem, especially because of his asshole ex but Adam was super caring and you can really see how he respects Nox. I did think the stalker plot was bit over the top but I really enjoyed this book.
This is dual POV and can be read as a standalone, though there’s lot of references to the other books. I think Dani’s getting an mmf book? Is it already out? I’m looking forward to Gage’s book! Can’t wait!
