***RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW*** Inked Babies by Jo Raven


Title : Inked Babies (The Inked Brotherhood Epliogue)

Author: Jo Raven

Genre : Romance

Photographer: Eric Battershell

Models: Burton Hughes and Coco Liliana Hughes

Five brothers in all but blood, five girls who love them, emerging from a past fraud with darkness and danger. There are wedding bells, and baby cries and laughter all around. They have found their happy ending.

Only one cloud is marring these blue skies, and it has to do with Zane, the rock of the brotherhood. Nobody knows exactly what is wrong, but here’s the thing, folks:

There are five of us, and we’re brothers in all but blood. We stand all for one and one for all. If you messed with one of us, you’ve messed with all of us. We protect our own.

And Zane is more than one of our own. He’s our leader. He’s our steady center. If our center shatters, we all shatter.

This brotherhood is strong. We’re gonna find out what troubles him and put it to rest, once and for all, bury it, stomp on it, crush it until it’s fixed or gone.

Time we celebrated our happy ending.

“How many lines do you see?” Audrey asks.

“I’m not drunk, you know.”

“Maybe I am. Humor me.” We’re both kneeling on the cold tiles of the bathroom, but can’t seem to move from the spot.

“Two. Red. Lines.” I lick my lips. “And that means?”

She punches me in the shoulder. It’s like a kitten pawing at me. “Ash.”

“What?” I grin.

“You know very well what it means.” She starts to laugh, covering her face with her hands, and she sounds kinda hysterical. “Oh my God, Asher Devlin.”

I can’t stop my grin from widening. “We’re having another baby.”

The pregnancy test is positive. I knew it in my gut for weeks now that she was pregnant, and here’s proof. I feel sorta proud, and scared, and happy at the same time.

I whoop and draw her into my arms to kiss her mouth. “I love you, Auds.”

“Love you, too, but…” She trembles a little in the circle of my arms. “So soon? Scott is not even two yet. He’s still breastfeeding, for God’s sake.”

I lower my hand to her still flat tummy. “And he’ll love a brother, or a sister to play with.”

“It will be hard.”

“We’ll be fine. We’ll do this together.” I bite my lip not to laugh at the look she sends me. “Well, I’ll help as much as I can. Rub your feet and all. Rub anything you need rubbed.” I lift my hand to cup one of her breasts, and yeah, I had thought her tits were heavier, and look, I’m right.

“It’s your fault,” she mutters, that mutinous look still flashing in her green eyes. “You and your… your cock.”

“It’s a super cock.” Apparently. I glance down where my dick is starting to rise to the occasion, tenting the front of my briefs. All this talk of baby making and the feel of her breast in my hand are giving it ideas. “Super Cock would like to say hi to Super Mommy.”

“Stop it.” She punches my shoulder again, and I brush my thumb over her hardening nipple, making her gasp.

Wow, her tits are almost spilling out of her fine-laced bra, and all I wanna do is drag her to our bed and sink into her.

Looks like she’ll need some persuading first, though. Her fine brows are knit. “I’ll never finish my studies, not with another baby. Oh God…”

“Hey. Auds.” I put my hand under her chin, tilt her face up until she’s looking at me. “Yes, you will. This baby wasn’t planned, hell, the previous one either, but we’re in this together. I meant it when I said it. I’ll help. We’ll find a way, and you’ll do everything you’ve ever dreamed of, okay? I promise.”

She nods, her eyes filling up, but she’s smiling. “I want your babies, Ash. All your babies. I trust you.”

My girl. I brush my mouth over hers, tasting her sweetness. “I hope I never give you cause to regret it.”

“You won’t.” She smiles at me, and her expression turns dreamy, just like it did the time we found out she was pregnant with Scott. Her hand covers mine over her tummy, and I try to imagine us with another baby.

A sudden stab of panic hits me, and I swallow hard. “Am I… Am I doing this right, Auds? With you and Scott? Am I…?”

“You’re the perfect daddy,” she whispers, calming me down like every time my fears flare up. “You’re amazing, and I’m yours.”

OOOOOHHHHH where to start where to start!!!

This is the Epilogue to the Inked Brotherhood series and is told in multiple POV's from all of the brother's and their girl's.

This story picks up with us thinking they all have their happy ending... ohhhh wow!! not quite yet! All of the brothers are worried about Zane. He has a new wife and baby. He should be happy right? Wrong! Something has come back from his past that has thrown him into a downward spiral. He's barely functioning and poor Dakota is at her wit's ending coping with a new baby and trying to help Zane.

The Brothers decide it's time to intervene. Zane is a rock for all of the brothers. He is the one that gave them all a chance. He's the one that kept them strong and saved them when needed so now it's their turn to do everything in their power to help him. The story goes from here.

Goodness!!! This story takes you on a massive rollercoaster!! From the very low's to the magnificent highs. Every couple in the story are having their own problems too and my heart broke at points for them all. But the main thread throughout the story was of Zane. He's so strong for others but he can't seem to pull himself out of this one. I was so happy that after lots of grunt's and "F**kers" he finally accepts help. The story we have of his already was heartbreaking but to finally know his past? Absolutely shattered!!! How he got to where he is in life is mystifying. I won't tell you his past read it and find out but OMG how much can one fella take? I swear the author, or should i say evil boy torturing author, threw everything at him possible but even she couldn't break the brotherhood. I know that sounds crazy but it's like the characters fought her all the way and won!!! lol

Seeing all the guys again was like coming home. I love them all and it actually confirmed that Dylan is still my fave. Boy will you swoon into a big gooey puddle when you read his bit. Phhhewwww.

The love scenes are passionate and wonderful you'll get hot and sweaty and maybe make some of your own babies!!!

The way the book is written is amazing. You would think that having so many points of view would confuse you and maybe lose the main theme of the story. But the way it's all pieced together is nothing short of genius!!!

I laughed, i cried, i swooned, i panted, i worried, i broke my heart over the torture they went through and at the end i cried again because it feels final like the end. But... big BUT!! We will see them again in new stories to come and also in the numerous re-reads you can do of the series.

I can't wait for the Damage Boys Epilogue, i can't wait for a brand new series linked to this The Lost Boys. You'll meet them and you will want to know more. I just can't wait for this author to release more more more!! Bring it on!!!

I would highly recommend this book to fans of the Inked Brotherhood. I would suggest you read the series first Asher, Tyler, Zane, Dylan and Rafe. Just amazing!!! Just a warning too this does get pretty dark in places so be aware.
