The Montgomery Ink series continues with the most unlikely of romances between the one that got away and the man who can show her the world.

Holly Rose fell in love with a Montgomery, but left him when he couldn’t love her back. She might have been the one to break the ties and ensure her ex’s happy ending, but now Holly’s afraid she’s missed out on more than a chance at forever. Though she’s always been the dependable good girl, she’s ready to take a leap of faith and embark on the journey of a lifetime.

Brody Deacon loves ink, women, fast cars, and living life like there’s no tomorrow. The thing is, he doesn’t know if he has a tomorrow at all. When he sees Holly, he’s not only intrigued, he also hears the warnings of danger in his head. She’s too sweet, too innocent, and way too special for him. But when Holly asks him to help her grab the bull by the horns, he can’t help but go all in.

As they explore Holly’s bucket list and their own desires, Brody will have to make sure he doesn’t fall too hard and too fast. Sometimes, people think happily ever afters don’t happen for everyone, and Brody will have to face his demons and tell Holly the truth of what it means to truly live life to the fullest…even when they’re both running out of time.


My Review:

Adoring ink is the second title in the 2017 1,001 Dark Nights series as well as part of Carrie Ann Ryan’s Montgomery Ink series. Man, I loved this sexy sweet story.  I’m a sucker for an opposites attract love story and this was such a great example of that!

One of the things I love most about Carrie Ann’s writing is the uncanny knack she has for writing real and relatable characters in real and relatable situations.  Holly and Brody were shining examples of that talent.  I loved these two together.  I mean what’s better than a sweet girl on a mission to shed some of her good girl ways and live life on the wild side from time to time and the delicious hero willing to show her how? The attraction and heat between them was delicious to read and I loved watching their relationship evolve as the story went on.  I was so sad to have realized I finished it as fast as I did because I didn’t want my time with Holly and Brody to end!  This will definitely be a novella I add to my re-read shelf 🙂

Thank you Carrie Ann for a fabulous read! I know new fans as well as your seasoned fans will enjoy it as much as I did!

Five Loves
