Storm’s younger cousin. Vandal’s little brother. You’ve met him in the background. The sweet one. The nice one. The one they can all rely on. The good one. He’s a tattoo artist. He plays metal and classical music - on the violin. He’s got a body built for sin. He’s 24. In comes Ivy. She’s a 36 year old single mom who hasn’t dated in 18 years. All she wanted was a tattoo. She got a helluva lot more :) Being good has never been so bad.
Lukas is book #3 in the Ashes and Embers series which is such an amazing series. I have read ever single books more than once. I am not going to lie when I read the Blurb for this book I was a little taken back. I didn't know how Carian was going to make it work with the age difference.
When I opened it up and read the prologue I wanted to thrown my tablet across the room. My goodness what an asshole the ex husband was. After I took a few breaths I begin the actual story and was blown away.
Lukas was nothing like I expected he was so patient and sweet and just perfect. I have to admit he is no Storm or Vandal, but he is his own unique person whom I loved.
Than there is Ivy she is just getting out a divorce and is a little timed at first but threw the book you see who she is meant to be and should be and it is fabulous. I liked her overall she is such an amazing mom.
As for the age difference it didn't really bother me much. I actually adored there age difference and how it brought them closer together.
The epilogue is what gutted me and brought me too my knees and damn you Carian I have to wait for the next one it seems so far away!!

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.
My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, was published in September of 2014 and book 2, Vandal, was published in February 2015 with several more of this series planned throughout 2015.
Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
