I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Inked Babies (Epilogue to Inked Brotherhood)
New adult romance with a HEA. Mature audiences only.
Five brothers in all but blood, five girls who love them, emerging from a past fraught 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 stand all for one and one for all. If you mess with one of us, you mess 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.
Warning: Inked Babies is NOT a standalone. You need to read the Inked Brotherhood series first to follow the events in this book. This is, however, a full-length novel with a happy ending.
Also a warning for some dark themes. If you have read ZANE (Inked Brotherhood #3) then you know what I mean.
The Inked Brotherhood is one of my all-time favorite series, so when I heard Jo was writing an epilogue for the series, I was ecstatic! And let me tell you. Jo did not disappoint in the slightest with this. I couldn’t stop reading. It’s amazing, emotional, and phenomenal.
We get different POVs of all the couples! I loved getting an inside glimpse on them and their little families. It just made my heart happy. We also get a few shots of the Damage Boyz and learn about a new group, the Lost Boys.
I just wanted to wrap Zane in a giant hug (though I know he wouldn’t let me) during the whole book. We get such an in-depth view of what exactly has made Zane how he is.
The way Jo writes makes you experience every single emotion her characters experience. It feels like you’re right there with them with your heart breaking, your soul smiling, or your tears pouring.
If you haven’t read the Inked Brotherhood series, you absolutely need to. I’ll include the links below for them and for the Damage Control series (a branch off the IB series). I also really hope there’s a Lost Boys series in the works!
