“A fleeting weakness, a tenuous moment wrought of pain and remorse that I wanted burned into my skin, never to forget. Yet, when she touched me, it all vanished... like an evanescent ink.”
Drew Massey’s life is suddenly turned upside down. On the heels of a crippling breakup, he is determined to learn his lesson. Never trust. Never love. Never open up to that kind of pain again. In the midst of creating a permanent reminder of his vow, he is interrupted by the one person who has the power to heal his heart.
At first glance, Raven Pelletier exudes confidence and independence. She’s tough as nails and willing to help Drew put his demons to rest by offering him a delicious distraction with a no-strings-attached physical release of the persistent bitterness that remains.
Yet somehow, the need for her seeps through. The taste of her lingers. Everything about her teases and tempts him to go a little farther and get a little deeper. It drives his passion until he realizes the very thing that alleviates the ache may actually shred his soul in the end.
It was supposed to be easy. It was supposed to be temporary. It was never supposed to mean a thing… but the freedom from pain is so intoxicating, how can he ever let her go?
Review by Lorena
I have to say that this series has been phenomenal. As each book comes out about a band member, it just keeps getting better and better. But I have to say that I love Evanescent Ink the most because I love Drew the most. Maybe it has to do with the fact that Lance Jones is on the cover (haha)! He's freaking hot!
Drew has really got it good with his girlfriend. She allows him to do what he wants and who he wants whenever he wants. What more can a guy ask for right! Then one fateful night she decides to break it off with him and leaves him just like that. Drew is upset and heartbroken because he really thought she loved him. But no, what she craved and was hoping for was the fame and fortune that she thought the group was eventually going to lead to.
Drew decides to not trust women and wants nothing to do with them until Raven comes in the picture. Raven has been there for Drew since day one and he just doesn't see how much this girl loves him. She plays it off nicely and they decide to just have casual sex (some seriously hot sex). But things start to progress and feelings start showing.
Can Drew move on and start over with Raven? Does Raven have what Drew needs and wants? The question really is....does Drew fall in love with Raven or has he always been in love with her and just didn't know it?
This book was seriously H.O.T.! Sibylla can write some pretty hot books with a kick-ass dialogue. I loved the story and the whole smoking hot sex involved with it. I also love the muses she used for her cover ;) A hot man with tattoo's always does it for me!
I was lucky enough to BETA read this book and have to say that I am sooooooo happy that I got that chance because I abso-freaking loved it!
If you haven't started reading the Copperline Series, then you need to get started -- you seriously will love it!
Five HOT stars!
About the Author:
Sibylla Matilde grew up in the mountain valleys of Southwest Montana exploring the dusty Old West gold country on the back of a horse. She attended a two-room schoolhouse beginning in 1st grade & had the same teacher until she changed schools after 7th. Beginning at about age 12, Sibylla discovered historical romance, feeding off of work of Jude Deveraux & Lisa Kleypas. She loves a book that can make the reader run the gamut of emotions, from the sweet glow of new love to gut-wrenching heartache. She is a true romantic & always has stories floating around in her head, living in a fantasyland until she writes them down to free them.
Music is her emotional trigger. Growing up with a Wagnarian-loving mother, Sibylla was raised to treasure music that digs deep into the psyche, drawing out elation, sorrow, grief, desire. The soundtrack to her life includes many genres spanning centuries. She looooooooves Thirty Seconds to Mars (rather obsessively, actually… but, really, how can you NOT be crazy about this guy!? Jared Leto. Shhh. ) & pimps them out to all her friends through Spotify. She also delights in Met Opera HD broadcasts at her local movie theater & hopes (listening Met?) to someday see Diana Damrau reprise her role as Mozart’s Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte. Sibylla lives with her husband and hero who saved her from her own calamitous, young-adult self. He makes her laugh daily, even when things are tough. He’s proved to her that love really can heal a shattered soul. In 18 years, they have never had a fight, although argue regularly with their two teenage kids who have, unfortunately, inherited their father’s quick wit (unfortunate as it is a quick wit that Sibylla, herself, definitely does not possess – there is a reason she is a writer & not a stand-up comedian). They live a quiet life with their two weird little rescued Chiweenies. Wait… teenagers & little yap-dogs? OK, maybe not so quiet.
