Beauty is more than skin-deep…
Tattoo artist Raven Smith is blunt and hard, broken and jaded, dark and beautiful. While she doesn’t hide her painful past, she does keep a wall around her heart. She’s free sexually—but no one gets to the real Raven beneath the prickly exterior.
With a voice like smoke, Jonah Warner is a smooth-talking, highly successful attorney, with a body that should never be hidden by a suit. He’s the kind of man who never takes no for an answer and always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Raven. She’s a survivor, and he finds that incredibly alluring.
Jonah gets under her skin in a way Raven has never experienced. He makes her break all her rules—including her no-monogamy rule.
But when a figure from Raven’s past shows up at the tattoo parlor and drops a bomb into her life, their relationship will face the ultimate challenge…




Crystal L's Thoughts: 
Everyone's favorite bitch finally gets her story! Raven, without a doubt, was the character that most people loved to hate during the Brown Siblings Series. She was rude, crude and most people had to learn to tolerate her. I always liked Raven though. Yeah, what she did in Brody's book was wrong, trying to lure him away from Elise without promising any kind of commitment  but that moment in time was kind of a wake up call for Raven. I saw past that and knew that Lauren Dane had developed a character well enough to give us that example in life of how someone's past can affect them. This book sheds light on that past.

I refuse to spill the beans about it though. You'll have to trust me when I say that Raven has her reasons for being the way that she is. Whether you like them or not. But in this book Raven finally meets someone who can look past her blunt, course ways to see the beauty that she is inside and out. AND I LOVED IT.

Jonah is such a delicious match for her. He's intelligent, caring, dominant but gentle with Raven in just the way she needs. He gives her the freedom she needs to not feel hemmed in, but is also standing right there at her back when she needs him. The fact that the man is a god in the bedroom is just a serious perk in my eyes. I didn't love him for his sensuality or slight kinkiness, I loved him for seeing and loving Raven for who she was. Which was a deep individual who had absolutely no filter on her mouth. A lot of people would write someone off for being like that, but it just intrigued Jonah. For understanding Raven's need to be the way she was, I think I'll always love him. Lauren Dane did justice to Raven's character with Drawn Together, and Jonah is the perfect man for her. 5 wine glasses for this book, and I seriously hope everyone loves it as much as I did!
