Summary

Four years have passed since I left home, my parents, and my brother Asher behind - since I shut out my past.

And Erin. Four years since I last saw her, since I heard her voice and held her in my arms. I've spent my time forging a path from woman to woman, from bed to bed, trying to find an answer. But I think I've lost my way. There's no light at the end of the dark.

No big surprise. I carry the dark inside me. I'm a bastard - branded as such from the start. I never give my phone number and address. I take my pleasure, and don't come back for seconds. No commitments, no promises, and no happy endings. Yeah, I'm a bastard down to the bone and I don't give a damn.

But now I'm back in my birth town, the town I fled at 18 - back to make amends to the brother I abandoned and watch from afar the only girl I've ever wanted. Hope isn't a currency I can afford. I learned that lesson long ago.

Yet when she looks at me and says my name, I can't help but hope.

Stand-alone novel. No cliff-hanger. Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature listeners only. Not intended for young listeners.

A hidden gem of a series of books

I stumbled on this series of books when searching the plus catalogue and was pleasantly surprised really enjoyed every book would highly recommend but start with the kiss goodbye a prelude to Asher then on to each book in order as on each story they touch on all the characters lives throughout.

Prepare to loose yourself in many emotions

OMG! This story is so heartbreaking, I cannot imagine a child having to go through the unspeakable things Tyler experienced by hands of his Dad. I couldn't put the book down, it pulled at all my emotions. A brilliantly written story.

Okay series...but...

I didn't dislike the series, but I did not exactly love it either. The thing that annoyed me mostly is the age of all these characters.
Every single one is under age for what is IMO logical in the storylines.
Storylines that began '4 or 5 years ago' when characters were 14 or 15 and then to 'now' when they are barely 20.
I am in no way saying that it isn't possible for some things to have happened as written - but to me it would be much easier to swallow if this group of friends were all 25 or so in the 'now'.
Also, no tattoo artist is going to be 18 or 19 and running his own shop. This is something that takes years of apprenticeship to learn and become licences for. (Fully tatted here...so trust me)

Narration was decent, but again these voices are NOT 19 or 20.

Overall if you can suspend your disbelief over parts it isn't a waste of time or credits.

Better than expected

I didn’t think I like this story but it was better than I expected. I cried and even laughed. There were dark parts but nothing ruined it. This author was new to me but won’t be my last. The narrators, Wow! They were fantastic! They made the story even better! I highly recommend!

First love... awwwww

Loved Tyler... what a great character... endured a very rough past ... for years... so be ready. A little difficult love story but it's all worth it. The story comes together quite nicely.

Ava and Teddy bring the characters to life in such a great way. They are simply awesome.

It's definitely worth the listen! Enjoy.

Too much misery😭

Why is everything distopian or miserable now? Everything directed to make people depressed to the point you just want the main character to crash his bike and die already so you can throw away the book.

Might be My Favorite So Far

I have been listening to this emotional and gritty series. I have loved all of them, but wow! Tyler’s storyline had me so emotional.
And Erin she and Tyler were perfect for each other. Tyler is Asher’s older brother and they have so many issues. Tyler has had such a horrible childhood! So unfair and realistic.
There is so much to this emotional romance, happy and laugh out loud moments. Also beautiful and healing storyline. I’m blabbering but I just really enjoyed this book so much.
Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton performance was excellent!! I love these amazing gifted narrators ♥️

A little drama and a little love, nice story

Not your typical story of young adults. Some surprises, little drama and love and unity and devotion. Nice and enduring story great for young adults.

Yeah!

I loved Jo Raven's stories. Her characters touch your heart and sometimes make you question their moral compass. Tyler's story is heart breaking but unfortunately very much real in any unusual family situation. I loved it and the narrator 's were Awesome always. I hope everyone will enjoy this book by Jo Raven as well as all her books in this series.
Sincerely;
Katydids

Tyler & Erin

OMG!! This story was so good. It was truly heartbreaking. It literally broke my heart at what Tyler went through. I dont know which brother, Ash or Tyler, had it the worst. They had a sucky father but in the end a HEA. The big surprise as to who Jax was surprised me. I dont know why it hadnt occured to me until it started unfolding. This story is definitely worth the time and credit or money.
