Decker Kenrick knows it’s wrong to have feelings for his best friend’s little sister, but that doesn’t stop his thoughts from going down that path. No matter how hard he’s tried to stay away from Miranda, once she gets her sights on him, there’s no backing down.

Miranda Montgomery might be the youngest of the Montgomery clan, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know what she wants. Namely—Decker. She’s loved him for as long as she can remember and won’t walk away until she gives it her all.

But once they give in, not all is at it seems. Decker’s father’s out of jail and someone from Miranda’s past isn’t happy with the new relationship. Even as they start to move on and overcome their pain, they’ll find that their inner obstacles are the ones they’ll have to face first.

 4.5 Stars

Miranda is the youngest of the Montgomery children. Although they are still treat her as if she is the little girl, she is very much an adult and a woman. Miranda is independent strong and caring. She has an underlying wild streak that only a few you get to see. One of the things I like most about her is that when she wants something she won’t stop till she gets it.

Decker Kenrick has gotten a piece of my heart. He has passion, loyalty, talent and a few demons. Decker is a few dashes of sweet with a big heaping cup of hot. Woot! This bearded, tattooed man will get under you skin.  His past is not a pretty one. That draws him to me in more ways that I am willing to go into. Enduring things that no one should have to go through, Decker learned what Family truly is with the Montgomery’s.  With his tender heart, tattered soul and amazing hands Decker has the best teachers as to what being family really is.

 

Chemistry, passion and feeling is what Carrie Ann Ryan gives her readers in Tempting Boundaries! Decker and Miranda heat the pages while fighting for something worth fighting for.  The two were made for each other. Knowing there was more to the two them than family/friends thing they test the waters ad push the boundaries.  Finding out a deeper story that will cut your heart. You can’t help but to feel for them.  Showing a family that will open its arms even if fists fly from time to time. One moment a tear will fall because of raw emotion the next your hot damn that is flipping hot. All while diving deeper into the Montgomery clan. A damn fine read and my favorite of the Montgomery Ink series thus far.

Montgomery Ink Series, Book 1

ebook
Expected publication: October 14th 2014 by Fated Desires Publishing, LLC
On the wrong side of thirty, Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, his inked sleeves and scruffy beard isn’t the suave business appearance some women crave. Only finding a woman who can deal with his job, as a tattoo artist and owner of Montgomery Ink, his seven meddling siblings, and his own gruff attitude won’t be easy.
Finding a man is the last thing on Sierra Elder’s mind. A recent transplant to Denver, her focus is on opening her own boutique. Wanting to cover up scars that run deeper than her flesh, she finds in Austin a man that truly gets to her—in more ways than one.
Although wary, they embark on a slow, tempestuous burn of a relationship. When blasts from both their pasts intrude on their present, however, it will take more than a promise of what could be to keep them together.
review
When Carrie Ann Ryan told her readers about the Montgomery Ink series at RAW 2013, she more that caught my attention. Who would not want to read about tattooed hotties. I love the way Carrie Ann writes her families. I know going into reading Delicate Ink, this was going to hit me in the heart.Austin is co owner of Montgomery Ink and has hit a rut in life. The sexy, bearded tattoo artist is the eldest of the Montgomery children. A proud brother and son, family is a source of happiness for Austin. Being on the upper side of thirty Austin is really to settle down and live out life in love. Austin is covered in tattoos, has a beard that I want to run my fingers through and eyes i just want to get lost in. He’s a badass, brash and like Shep in Ink Inspired has a bad habit of say the crappest thing at just the wrong time and putting his foot in his mouth. Under the tats and attitude is the man will do his damnest to make your dreams come true.

Sierra is a braver woman that I know how to put into words. Suffering a past that would make the average person never want to walk the earth again. She pushes herself to fulfill her dream. Opening a boutique and making her life on her own. In taking a step to continue her healing, Sierra want a tattoo to cover ugly scars on her body to help move on from the past. A strong yet timid woman whose life changed just by walking into Montgomery Ink. Pretty, sweet and sassy Sierra will break your heart and make you love her all at the same time.

Carrie Ann Ryan never fails. A well written story filled passion and family. Both the lead and secondary characters shine through the pages. An emotional tale that made me laugh, shed a tear and want to smack one or two characters a few times. Ms. Ryan knows how to make her readers fall in love characters. Over and over again. Adding some kink with the ink, the is no lack of steam within these pages!

Delicate Ink is more that the story of Austin and Sierra. It’s an in depth look at what it is to be a Montgomery. A large family that is more than blood. Together through the good and the bad. A family that is more than willing to open their arms to gain another into the hold.  !
