Blog Tour #bookreview Inked in Lies by Giana Darling @gianadarlingauthor @jennw23

Hello fellow book lovers, hope you are doing good as you can wherever you are in the world. I, being in India, am stuck in a Lockdown and unemployed situation at the moment. Books are a much needed respite more than ever before given the current crisis situation. Which makes me only grateful to have received some fantastic review copies off late.

Today’s review is Giana Darling’s latest title in the Fallen Men Series, of course it can be read as a standalone but you will be missing all the fun and fabulous stories in the series so far. With that I wish you happy reading and discovering new stories.


Inked in Lies, an all-new sexy and gritty friends-to-lovers MC romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Giana Darling, is releasing July 31st, and we have the smoking hot cover! 

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Giana Darling comes a new friends-to-lovers, MC romance about the asshole biker next door and the girl who loves him. 

He moved in next door. 
Handsome as sin, older in a way that meant forbidden. 
He had tattoos on his hands and wickedness tucked in his grin. 
I was a goner as a girl to a man they called Casanova for a reason. 
He would never love me, at least not the way I needed him to. 
I tried to move on.
But I couldn’t turn my back on him or The Fallen MC. 
So when they needed me most, I offered the only thing of value I could use to help them.
My body. 
And when helping them meant putting my life on the line, Nova had to decide just how much he was willing to do to get me out alive. 

My Thoughts

Inked in Lies is the story of Biker playboy Jonathon Booth aka Nova and Lila Meadows. This is an age gap romance however we meet the characters pretty young and are with them throughout their journey. So do not let the age gap worry or put off from picking this kick ass title.

The story starts when the characters are pretty young and one of them moves to a new neighborhood. It seemed like love at first sight and after that it was a roller coaster for pretty much till the end of the story. Lila is soon part of the Booth family and gets everything a child should from their biological family. We follow Lila from a young age to her mid twenties and how the Booth family, every member of it, plays a pivotal role in her life. Then there is Nova the eldest boy of the Booth family who pretty much is best friends with Lila and her older brother.

In this story spanning at least 2 decades we see Lila and Jonathon grow up and become wonderful souls individually and something dynamic together. The emotions portrayed in this story are raw, gritty and honest in a primal sense especially that of the lead characters. It is a Biker romance and swoony with a perfect mix of bad ass bikers, especially the familiar characters if you have read the rest of the Fallen Men series.

What I absolutely enjoyed about this story is the dynamic between Nova and Lila as they literally and emotionally grow up with each other. The sense of belonging and friendship they share is explosive and comforting, so much that it will make you wish you had someone like that in your life. The bond is not just between the lovebirds but also the whole Booth family and the Meadow siblings. The story strongly reflects a sense of family, of having each other’s back and caring for little as well the big joys in each other’s lives. The themes of family and friendship help the love between Lila and Nova shine through brightly, which is something that will not only make you love the story but also smile, root and cheer for all the characters in equal measure.

I have read the previous titles in the Fallen Men series and this latest addition did not disappoint and surely met my expectation. If you are looking to read a biker romance series The Fallen Men is definitely a good start for some kick ass characters and stories which will make you heart happy with its romance, bad ass bikers and sense of family and friendship.
