From Ashes (Heathens Ink #3) by K.M. Neuhold


“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?

**From Ashes is the third book in the Heathens Ink series, each book in the series CAN be read as a standalone.

CAUTION: this book contains graphic descriptions of domestic violence and drug use that may be disturbing to some readers.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

KM Neuhold's third book in her Heathens Ink series, From Ashes, is an amazing story. 

It's a compelling and accomplished story of two broken men, who together can save one another. Nox's story is heart-wrenching. And the grief and guilt from losing his brother is drowning Adam. 

The special meaning of the phoenix rising from ashes is wonderfully explored. I applaud the author for this addition to the tale.

Another remarkable part of Nox and Adam's story is the way that Adam reacts to Nox's scars. Seriously, this is so damn beautiful and emotional. I was so touched by this.

From Ashes is fantastic. I loved every single second of it. Luckily, there are more books in this superb series by KM Neuhold.
