At twelve years old, I was torn from my family.
At fourteen I met her: my reason to draw breath.
One look into Everly Williams's big brown eyes and I knew I’d do anything to protect her. And for eight years I did. She was my world. My best friend.
But afraid I'd lose her, I held on too tight. Became a dark cloud blocking her sun. So I did what I needed to, and walked away. I hurt us both.
Now I’m home, and need Everly back in my life. Only everything is different. We’re different. My body burns for her when she’s near. And after one explosive kiss, I know she feels it too. I’ll do whatever it takes to earn her trust again.
Because I don’t want what we had before. I want it all...for a lifetime.
A best friend's to lovers romance in the sexy new Rocktown Ink series.

"It was like a veil being lifted, revealing what had always been. Everly had dug in so deep, was a part of my soul, and I didn't know how I hadn't seen it before."
I'm a sucker for a #Friends2Lovers romance...sigh. The fact that these two friends had met in foster care makes their bond even stronger. He was her protector then. He is her protector now. That will never change. What has changed is that they've grown up and...out.
"I mean, I'd always known she was beautiful on the outside as well as inside. Of course, I had. I wasn't f*(king blind. I'd just programmed my brain to ignore that fact. That didn't seem to be working anymore, though."
Little Everly is all grown up and wants more than his friendship and protection. I know this because the story is told in dual POV and I've been inside her head. But, he doesn't know that. Mostly because she's pissed at him for walking away and he's gonna have to work for the relationship that they once had. What she doesn't know is that's not what he wants now...he wants more.
These two broken characters had my poor heart all torn up over their painful past. Nobody deserves a happily-ever-after more than they do. Not just anybody will do, though. They are it for each other, if only they would get out of their own way and stop letting their fear of losing each other be the reason they lose each other. "—it was like we sparked off each other before being set alight, engulfed in an inferno of our own making."
The Rocktown Ink series is rockin' my world. I don't know if there will be more books in this series or not, but there are most definitely a few characters that are throwing sparks. Fingers crossed they will get their own story. The line forms here...
