Meet the Damage Control Boys - set in the world of the bestselling series Inked Brotherhood. New Adult Contemporary Romance.
Returning to Madison hurts. I thought I’d left my past behind, but the past goes on living. I carry it inside of me, it’s a piece of me. People have marked me in indelible ways and I drag the shreds of my soul behind me, trying to put my pieces back together. I’m not the Amber I used to be. I fly under the radar, try to be invisible.
It doesn't always work. Drawing attention scares me. It always spells trouble. Returning to my home town is a last ditch effort to lay my demons to rest and start anew, for good this time.
Meeting Jesse Lee wasn’t in the plan. Yet here he is with his heart-stopping, sexy grin, handsome like a god, shining bright. He’s full of life, full of heat, packing the energy of a thousand suns in his gaze and muscular body. Jesse burns, and the pain of being near him is sweet.
But he’s foiling my plans. It’s hard to remain a ghost when he’s around. Hard to avoid his attention, to remain invisible. He sees me, really sees me, and behind his bright radiance, I can see shadows from his own past crowding in. He’s swimming hard to stay afloat even as he reaches for me.
What is he afraid of? And how can he save me from drowning when he can’t even save himself?
Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.

JESSE is book 2 in the series Damage Control - a series set in the same world as Inked Brotherhood. The boys of Damage Control were taken in by Zane Madden and Rafe Vestri and offered apprenticeship and work in the tattoo shop Damage Control.
Next in the Damage Control series: SETH (Damage Control 3).
Book 2 in the Damage Control series is Jesse and Amber's book.
Amber is returning to the place that houses both her best friend and her traumatic childhood. She has some hangups to overcome if she's going to survive this town.
Jesse has some hangups of his own stemming from his childhood. For the first time he's somewhere he can call home and it scares him.He works his tail off hoarding money while constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Jesse and Amber were two perfectly broken people in need of the right person to heal them.
I loved Jesse. My heart broke for him a few times throughout the story but the end made up for it!
As for the secondary characters, Seth was my favorite, he piqued my interest. The poor guy just can't catch a break and I cannot wait for his story, I just know it's going to be great.
Jesse meets Amber on her first day back in town. He is someone who hides his pain behind a sunny smile and humor. Amber tries to avoid people as much as possible but they just keep running into each other. Both have darkness in their pasts which they deal with in different ways yet both are hiding. Will they be able to pull themselves out of the darkness to find their HEA? I liked this book but I didn’t connect as well with Amber. The ending seemed a little rushed to me but this is a very good read.
On a side note; oh my God poor Seth. I can’t wait for his book!
A must read!
Great story and hot too!
