Meet OCEAN, the newest of the Damage Control Boys, set in the world of the bestselling series Inked Brotherhood. *** This is New Adult Contemporary Romance.
I thought I was a normal kid once. Do normal kids have to beg from door to door for food? Not sure. It wasn't always that bad, I guess—and then it was. Really f*****g bad.
I tried to protect my younger brother from the fallout. Lied to him about how bad things were.
But it wasn't enough. And when the accident happened, he blamed me, like everyone else.
I'm guilty of many things. He's right about that, at least. So damn guilty I'm sure everyone knows and will call me out on it.
Except they don't. Nobody does, except my brother.
Not even Kayla, sexy and sweet and coolest girl ever, who keeps buying me coffee and trying to read my future. But my future isn't in the goddamn cards, or even in my hands. I don't see a future. I deny fate, but fate has me pinned like a moth and won't let me walk away.
Won't let me escape.
And yeah… you know you're losing grip when the girl you want reads your palm, and you're scared to hell of what she'll see and of the pain you can tell is coming.

OCEAN is book 5 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.
So good, a favorite!
I'm pretty sure this is my favorite book ever written by Jo. There's just something about it that really pulled at all of my heart strings. I cried multiple times because there were so many amazing and sweet parts. Everything that lead up to this book had me wanting Ocean's story. I knew it was going to be good, but I didn't know it'd be this good. Kayla always seemed so quirky and I never thought of who she might end up with. I loved the roll Kayla had at the end of Shane's book, it was so profound.
Profound seems to be my thought throughout most of this book. Each of these men had a different story (for the most part), but a lot about Ocean's past hit me harder than the others. The way he needed Kayla and the way she needed him, it brought me to tears a few different times. Their bond seemed more unique and so much more loving than the others. She's such a nurturer, and I love that she took care of Ocean. Ocean always took care of everyone else, that he didn't realize how much he needed it.
I love how these people are a family; they are the biggest and best family unit. When the tough gets going, they are always there for you, especially Zane. I love how much they needed and used each others help in his book. Just showed how amazing they all are.
Ocean is the last of the guys at Damage Control to find his person. He has known Kayla for awhile but the keep their distance from each other. They are attracted to each other but neither is looking for a relationship. Kayla comes from a very conservative family and has moved out on her own for college. Ocean has parents who were never caring and were neglectful. He grew up looking after his brother who he is now estranged from. One night out with friends changes things and they can no longer stay away from each other. Another good read full of angst by Jo Raven. I wish there were more to come in this series.
