Forever Inked Series

Beautiful Ink


That’s the one word that I’ve tattooed on more skin than I could ever remember—even if I wanted to.

It’s a word that evokes incredibly strong thoughts and emotions for most people.

It brings about feelings of love, care, support and unity, forever.

But to me, the word family means a lot more.

Violent. Harmful. Wild. Corrupt. Lethal.

You can run away from those who love you. But you can't run away from them forever.

Everything else is immaterial.

They are family by choice, held together by respect and devoted till death.

But that isn’t the only side of this life.

Hold’s father, the President of the Motorcycle Club, lives by ruthlessness, brutality and treachery.

It’s always blood in and blood out.

And only one man can ever get to sit at the helm.

Ruining Series

Ruining Me

Life is a living hell for eighteen year old Jay Stevenson.

She seemed to have it all figured out two years ago, until her whole world came crashing down in one moment.

There were three guys when it all went south for Jay: JT, the dream boyfriend she never wanted to let go of; Rhye, the local bad boy “rock star” who made her forget the past; and Kane, the hilarious and adorable tattooed bartender who wants her future.

Is it possible to face the future while still shackled to the vices of the past?

Ruining You

"For a girl who got too close to the fangs of death, living is the only thing that matters now."

Jay’s life nearly came to a forced and tragic end when shadowy secrets from her past were revealed. Even worse is that the one she was meant to spend her future with was taken away from her.

With all her secrets now on everyone’s tongue, very few of them are sympathetic.

Someone wants her to be forever haunted by her past while another is resolved to make her take a separate path.

As much as Kane and Rhye are convinced that Jay is worth the fight, waiting for her to win her battles may destroy them all.

Wasted Heart

“Who are you?” I silently ask myself.

The image in the mirror stares back at me as though faking impartiality.

Am I a Rock star? A recovering addict? A killer?

How can you even explain to someone how not giving a damn feels like?

I can no longer connect to my feelings or show any affection.

I still do have a heart. The only difference is that it's just there…hollow…idle...wasted.

My agent insists that this is my last chance to stay in the music biz.

The only problem is HER: Syn Landry.
