I first heard of K. M. Neuhold from The Quirky Blind Date with a Book group that I help run. She was one of our authors, and I didn’t get to read her book when we ran it through the group, but it looked awesome and added a few of her books to my Goodreads. Fast forward a few months to when I actually had some time to read my personal pick books and I decided to start her Heathens Ink series. If you love m/m romances, THIS is the series for you! From Ashes is the 3rd book in the series and I loved it!
“When the broken man with scarred skin walked into Heathens, asked for a job, and showed me a sketch of a phoenix, it felt like fate.”~ Adam
It started with an anonymous post by someone who didn’t want to live anymore. I read it over and over again, unable to get it out of my mind. What if my brother Johnny had posted something like this before he’d taken his own life? Would someone have been able to save him?
I’ve been living a lie for 16 long years and I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to keep it up. And when a beautiful, broken man walks into my tattoo shop asking for a second chance at life, I know I’ll never be able to turn him away.
“When I was so far down I couldn’t even see the light, a stranger reached in to save me”~ Nox
I didn’t have anything to live for, until a kind stranger pulled me back from the brink. With physical and emotional scars I have nowhere to turn now but to that same stranger who saved my life without realizing it. But as my feelings for Adam grow, will I ever be anything other than a surrogate for the brother he couldn’t save? Am I even worthy of his love?
|Wow! I really loved From Ashes. As always the characters were amazing. It was nice finally getting to see into Adam’s head, and I loved the new character that was introduced, Nox. His backstory was tragic, and the way that him and Adam first meet online to when they meet in person was a really great storyline.
The only thing I didn’t like was how everything got wrapped up in a pretty little bow with Gage. I felt like there could have been more added to that whole scenario to make it have a little more angst to keep the reader interested. Otherwise the story was great and I really loved it.
Can’t wait to see Gage’s story, or Dani’s depending who she decides to write next 🙂

*also it says this book can be read as a standalone, which it can, but there is a lot of character cross over so for people like me, you need to start the series from the beginning*

K.M.Neuhold has long since been a romance junkie. When she’s not writing she’s reading or spending time snuggling with her husky or her husband. She fell in love with M/M romance last year and hasn’t been able to turn back. There’s nothing she loves more than love in all its forms.
