“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 pa

I can't believe more people aren't devouring this friggin' amazing series. ...more
This author's books just keep getting better and better! Drew wasn't my favorite Mofo boy (Cody is still the man), but his story was amazing. And, that is thanks to Ravenna! She is one hot babe that is without a doubt my favorite heroine written by Ms. Matilde! I just had to get out some thoughts out there even though it's late so I can let her fans know that this particular novel is stellar! The writing. The characters. And, the storyline just suck the reader in. I found myself tearing up quite ...more

Favorite Quotes:

She had me wrapped around her finger. Twisted, really. Tight and harsh like the hold she had on my nads.

The finality of it unsettled me. It was like the proverbial fat lady screeching arias in my ear.

Free and easy just didn't seem like enough all of a sudden... I was starting to envy the closeness my friends had with their women. I felt a little cold, like I'd always be on the outside looking in.

You love me. You healed me. I was broken, and you kept me from going under.

Let me start by saying that I absolutely love the Copperline series by Sibylla Matilde.

Cody is my man, but let me say that Drew tugged at my heartstrings too. There was something about witnessing this broken man turning his life around and giving love another shot that did things for me. Usually, we are seeing this type of scenario through the eyes of a woman, so it was refreshing to learn through the eyes of a man. They are just as sensitive as the rest of us!

So very early on we learn the cau

Another 5 star read that will put that bottle of wine to shame!! It really didn't help.. I wish it did, and these stupid Kleenex!

Sigh! When a story falls into pieces along with your heart and soul.. THIS is the story that I was looking for. THIS is the type of story that I didn't know I needed but now found out I can't live without reading it again and again.. hopefully with a stronger something that will keep my tears to at least a minimum.

The tears and heartbreak are SO worth it!!

Drew lost hop
Raven is my favorite Mofo girl, hands down. My homegirl in purple. I loved her for her strength and quiet vulnerability.
In the beginning I thought I was going to hate Drew. I was a bit iffy on him in the previous books, but only because of his relationship with Maggie (eww.) He turned out to be pretty stellar, though.
This one didn't feel as angsty, but still tugged at my heartstrings, and had me pulling for Drew and Ravens HEA.

This is Andrew "Drew" Masey's story. He is the lead guitarist for his band "The Bangin' Mofos". I love this band name! This book is 4 of the Copperline series.
But you can read this out of order. I had no trouble keeping up with the story. If anything it makes me want to read the other band members books.

Love Sucks, this is literally the first two words of Chapter 1. Already know I will like this book. As I say in almost all my reviews. If I don't have a full spectrum of emotions on a book then
phew, holy hotness! Wait until you get your hands on Drew. I am in love/lust! Just call me Mrs Massey...!
This book is hot. Like of the charts hot! But it is so much more than that. So very much more.
Okay, so I will go back to the beginning when we first met Maggie in Post Breakup Sex. I didn't like her then and with each passing book my dislike grew. It is a testament to Sibylla Matilde that she can make you feel like that way towards a very minor side character throughout the series.

Another Hot Steamy Installment of the Copperline Series and WOW WOW WOW !! Who would have thought after all this time Maggie would give up on her dream of fame and fortune by breaking the heart and soul of Drew.

Raven has been a good friend, hard working employee and had secret crush for her boss Drew for the last two years since she moved to town. But when she finds him drunk, angry and heart broken she tries to make him see the good in some and to keep him in a positive light by distracting hi

I received a copy of this book, the 4th book in the Copperline series, from the author. I have read pretty much all of Sibylla Matilde's books and I have to say this by far was my favourite.

Drew had his life turned upside down when his girlfriend "slapper witch" Maggie dumps him to be a lesbian. He was wallowing in a drunken stupor when his friend and employee Raven offered to "distract" him with amazing sex. As the story goes on he wants more and she maintains they are just friends with benefi

Another amazing read from Sibylla Matilde who very quickly became my go to author. I will read anything she writes. Yes she is that good!!!

Drew is a member of the Mofo's and also the owner of a popular tattoo shop. Raven is his employee who has stood by him and watched his train wreck of a relationship finally fizzle out and thankfully die. Raven gives Drew exactly what he needs to forget and they forge a friends with benefits relationship. But Raven is so much more than her beautiful steampunk
I love the Copperline series, and Evanescent is a good continuous to it.

Maggie was pure poison to Drew. She was not a good fit for him. She was controlling, and only looked out for herself. But when she breaks up with Drew it left him in a downward spiral. He Thought he was broke and never wanted to love again. Until Raven. He had no idea she would come in and turn his world around. He had no idea he could feel what he does towards her. But Raven isn't that simple.
What they started as friends.

Received this as an ARC copy from Sibylla Matilde. This book was awesome!

For some time we have gotten moments of Drew and Maggie in previous books and I am so glad he finally got shot of her in this one. I loved Drew and Raven in this book. Even though Raven had her vulnerable moments, I love how tough Sibylla Matilde wrote her character and I also liked that Raven always seemed comfortable with her choices to dress how she wants and be who she is. I also like that Drew was pretty self aware an

Let me start by saying that I love books told by the male point of view and Sibylla is a master. Evanescent Ink is the latest in her Cooperline series. I immediately fell in love with hottie tattoo artist/musician Drew and the steampunk loving/mysterious Raven. The details of Ravens love for steampunk were so amazing that I could picture it all in my head. The struggle they go through as they try to find their way past heartbreak (Drew) and never feeling like you are worth anything (Raven) playe ...more

Hands down, this was my favorite in the Copperline series. Without a doubt. Also possibly my fave book by this author, who btw is quite awesome and writes in such a way that I never want to put the books down. And trust me, that NEVER happens anymore.

We've seen Drew and Maggie in the previous books and I'll tell you, that girl skeeved me out. So I was quite happy to see Drew get his HEA with Raven.

This one hit so close to home, I'm having a hard time putting into words how I feel. it's almost like the book was written about my own life....
This is the 1st book in the Copperline series I have read. But I will Def be going back and reading the others. I will say, I was not lost. although there are references from the previous books, it was able to be read as a stand alone within the series.

Yet again, Sybilla has me fall in love with another member of the Bangin Mofo's and though I love the series, this one may just be my favorite!
Sexy lead guitarist and owner of Ink tattoo shop, Drew Massey has a dream, that dream for his band to make it big and his girlfriend Maggie is their supporting that dream. Maggie's main goal has been to show him how good it could be when he makes it big , the typical , sex, drugs and rock and roll.
They are living the dream until after three years of Drew

Let me start by saying, I happen to LOVE the Copperline series by Sibylla; she's done a beautiful job writing each individual installment within the series.

I used to think that Easy Little Lick was my favorite book within the series, but then I was introduced to Drew's installment, and quite frankly, I'm no longer sure which installment is my favorite!!

As I continue to read each book, I am seriously reminded of another series which captured me in a similar fashion a few years back; and I'm happ

Each book is written about a specific member of the band yet, it builds on the previous book. This time around is our sexy lead guitarist Drew and the woman who wins her heart, Raven. As the book starts Drew is banging a groupie when he meets his current girlfriend Maggie.

During his and Maggie's relationship things aren't all they seem. Let's back track here for a moment. Not only is Drew the lead guitarist for his band he also owns a tattoo shop. That is whe

Sibylla has done an amazing job once again!!!! Book four of the Copperline series is just as hot as, if not even hotter than first three.

He is not looking for anything new and just wants to live his life the way it is, however he is not sure he can do this without Maggie. He ends up trashed and trying to give himse

This is the four book of the Copperline series by Sibylla Matilde and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed everyone of these great books. Sibylla Matilde has given us a story where each character brings something to the relationship which could be a new experience , (they could be class as a steampunk Irish band) or darkness from their past.

OMG...This book was fabulous. There is something about a broken man needing a strong woman to heal his broken heart that gives me butterflies.

Not only is Drew a member of the band he is also the owner of a Tattoo shop. Drews left heartbroken when his girlfriend walks out but the biggest kicker of all is she has become a lesbian. Now how can he fight that, he cant compete as he dosnt have the right goods to offer.

I can’t say it enough. I freakin’ love the boys of the Bangin’ Mofos. Each story has been unique, awesome, hot and steamy. I have laughed while reading each book, and this one is no different.

And damn can Sibylla write some awesome sex scenes!

This is the fourth book in the series. You don’t have to read them in order, but I highly recommend you do. Each book is about a different Mofo.

This is drew’s story. He is the guitarist and also owns a tattoo parlor, Ink Inc.
