It’s been four years since twenty-year-old Jessica Hayes has been home, but when she discovers her father is dying, she must return to her hometown in South Carolina and face her past. Jessica thought patching up her relationship with her father would be her biggest challenge, but when she runs into Ryan Dawson—the catalyst of all her problems—she wonders if coming home was a mistake.
Ryan knows he screwed up. Hell, he paid the price…with interest. But when he runs into his best friend’s little sister, Jessica, he’s reminded that his debt will never truly be paid. He may have turned his life around, but he can’t undo the damage. So, he does what he should have done all those years ago. He stays away from Jessica, and all the other personal demons that still haunt him.
Jessica thought she wanted nothing to with Ryan, but something is different about him and she needs to know why. When she discovers the truth behind his change, she puts her troubles aside and tries to help him. But is putting her heart back in the line of fire worth disrupting her stable life back in Ohio, or will the past repeat itself, leaving her brokenhearted once again?

Here’s a snippet from Captured Love (Ryan’s POV):
I stopped shoving my pants back on when the girl in the bed moved. I even stopped breathing, lest she woke up and saw me there.
What would I say to her? “Hi, hmm, yeah, I don’t remember your name, or how I came to end up in your dorm room.” No, that wouldn’t be nice. Not that I ever tried being nice. Actually, girls loved when I was bad. Nice did no good to my reputation.
The girl went back to snoring, wrapped only in her flimsy pink sheet.
I put my polo shirt on and leaned closer. The girl was pretty, but the fact that my head throbbed and I didn’t remember anything of the night told me she was so boring, I had to drink my way to her bed. Not good.
I looked around. The dorm was simple but with too many pink stuff. Pink pillows, pink notebooks, pink lamp, pink rug, pink slippers. Over her desk, beside her pink wallet, I found a bill from one of the bars at Gervais Street, three blocks from the girl’s dorm. Those bars were packed with college students during weekends, packed with girls, most of them very easy, which made my life easier. Some days I loved the chase, the hunt, the expectation. Of course, after sleeping once with the girl, I barely ever spoke to her again. But there were days when I just wanted to get in and get out, as simple as that.
TYLER (Inked Brotherhood, #2)
New Adult contemporary (erotic) romance
by Jo Raven
Cover by Jo Raven
RELEASE DATE: July 25th 2014
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 eighteen – 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.
This is book 2 in the Inked Brotherhood series which started with Asher. It is a stand-alone work. No cliffhanger.
“Why, Tyler? Tell me why you left.”
“I don’t wanna talk about it,” he grinds out.
I want to bang my fist on his chest and slap his face. My fingers curl against the soft fabric of his T-shirt, and I feel his muscles clench underneath.
“Screw you,” I whisper and I hope my voice won’t break and betray me. “That’s all you have to say to me? I’m not going to—”
“You’re so beautiful,” he whispers.
Shocked into silence, I stare at him. His gaze is moving over my body, a hot, silky glide that steals my breath. His pupils are dilated, making his eyes look black.
I try again. “After all this time, I just want to know—”
His hand hooks around my back, pressing me to his body, and he bends his head toward me, dark hair falling in his eyes. His mouth descends on mine, sealing the words inside.
The world falls away with a murmur as he kisses me. I gasp and his tongue pushes inside, tangling with mine. He licks at my mouth, and he tastes so good – like dark chocolate and pepper. Familiar. Thrilling. Sexy.

Here’s a special release day reveal of Chapter 1!!
Chapter 1. Broken Pieces
She hasn’t cried. She doesn’t cry for me—but I know how fragile she is.
I want to break her. I want to push her hard enough to see her shatter. I want to see the shards of her on the ground.
How fucking beautiful would she be, when she put herself back together? She would. Nurrin is too stubborn to do anything but survive.
Nurrin is a first, born to a world of death. She is innocent of the life before the change. She has never known anything but Hale Halls, razor wire, and walls. She has never known she could be anything but a survivor.
I watch the sun rising over the canyon. In another world, people might have exclaimed over the beauty, stared at it in wonder.
To me, the red-washed sky means only one thing: it’s almost time to leave.
I glance over my shoulder. She retreated to the sleeping area a few hours ago, after we fought over leaving immediately. I think there is a part of her that hopes Collin will come back. A supply run wouldn’t be completely unjustified.
My lips twist.
Collin wouldn’t leave the Hole, not unless he had to. Not when he knew that it’s the only place I would take Nurrin. He’s gone because something is wrong.
