Micah (Damage Control #1) by Jo Raven

Available on
Amazon * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads


There’s me: Micah Owens. Tattoo artist at Damage Control. No parents or siblings. A past that still gives me nightmares. 

And then there’s her: Evangeline, the girl who saved my life and haunts my more pleasant dreams. Only she doesn’t know who I really am, and telling her might well send her fleeing for the hills. She deserves better than a loser like me. She’s pretty. She’s clever. She’s goddamn sexy and has a heart of gold. 

Which is why I can’t tell her. A smile from her and I’ll do all I can to make her mine – including pretending to be someone I’m not, someone worth having. 

Isn’t love weird? 


Micah was a fun read. I really enjoyed it even though if I think logically about it I shouldn't have. I don't think the writing is the best, but it is one of those stories that is a bit endearing to me. One of those books that I usually wouldn't like, but for some reason really enjoyed. I am always surprised when that happens and I am never sure why I like some stories with so so writing and why I hate others. This was a fun one though so it is all good. 

Evangeline is such a kind, sweet person. She is always helping out the homeless, helping those others don't really pay much attention to. She had her routes she would walk until one day when she came across a guy who was not doing so well. She called an ambulance for him, but was hit by a car shortly thereafter and never found out what happened to him. She sometimes thinks of that guy and wonders if he made it, if he lived because of her help. 

Micah used to live on the streets. He was not in a good way until an angel stepped in and helped him out. He was probably going to die, but because of her he lived. He is a tattoo artist working for a guy who gives people like him second chances and he loves it. Every day at the same time he sees his angel at the donut shop across the street. Or he thinks it is her. He is trying to work up the courage to go and talk to her and get to know her better. 

Of course the two of them get thrown together and they were really cute. They both really like the other right away, but Micah doesn't want to let her know who he really is. He is worried that she won't want to be with him once she learns he used to be homeless. Of course there are some issues along the way to happily ever after, especially Evangeline's super crazy ex who doesn't realize he is an ex, her family who sides with him, and there are some tense situations. It was a good read though. The two of them are so cute together and they just work. I definitely need to read more from this series.
