Review: Fallen Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

Fallen Ink

Carrie Ann Ryan

Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs, Book 1

ebook
Expected publication: April 17th 2018

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a spin-off in Colorado Springs, where a familiar Montgomery finds her place in a new tattoo shop, and in the arms of her best friend.

Adrienne Montgomery is finally living her dreams. She’s opened a tattoo shop with her brother, Shep, and two of her cousins from Denver and she’s ready to take the city by storm with her art—as long as she can handle the pressure. When her new neighbors decide her shop isn’t a great fit for the community, however, she’ll have to lean on the one person she didn’t expect to fall for along the way…her best friend.

Mace Knight takes pride in two things: his art and his daughter. He knows he’s taking a risk by starting over in a new shop with the Montgomerys, but the stakes are even higher when he finds himself wanting Adrienne more than he thought possible.

The two fall fast and hard but they know the rules; they can’t risk their friendship, no matter how hot it is between the sheets and how many people try to stand in their way.

Friend to lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes and Carrie Ann Ryan nails it in every way with Fallen Ink.

Adrienne Montgomery is as Montgomery as that get. She has talent and spunky. She’s kind and gentle yet fierce and commanding when she needs to be. A woman trying to make her dreams come true while not allowing letting anything to stand in the way.

Mace Knight is like tattooed knight in shining armor. He’s dedicated to his art and his daughter. Commanding and gentle all in one. He’s a remarkable man who got dealt a crazy hand and is trying to make the best of the cards in his hand.

Adrienne and Mace have a friendship so deep most people question if they are truly friends or more than meets the eye. Their friendship and chemistry is something a lot of people would wish for. While being who they are, Adrienne and Mace discover their friendship is more than they both could have realized. Life has a funny way of throwing curveballs and watching Mace and Adrienne discover who they are together while deal with life changes was enjoyable. Fallen Ink is filled with heat, heart and family. We get all the deep emotions and all the humor of the Montgomery clan. Adrienne and Mace will keep the pages turning.

ARC Review: Passion Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan

psPassion Restored
Carrie Ann Ryan
Gallagher Brothers Series, Book 2
ebook, 240 pages
Published February 28th 2017

 

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with the one brother who thinks he can handle it all and the one woman who could change that.

Owen Gallagher likes everything in its place and is organized to a fault. While his brothers have each dealt with their own personal tragedies and stresses, Owen figures he’s had it pretty easy. That is until his perfectly ordered world is rocked at its foundation and he’s forced to rely on others. Now, he must heal his body and his soul while trying to ignore his delectable and utterly off-limits neighbor.

Liz McKinley is stressed out, exhausted, and not in the mood for a bearded and growly man in her ER. When she patches him up to the best of his ability, she’s prepared to push him firmly from her thoughts. Of course, that would be easier if she and her best friend hadn’t bought the house next to his. Now their paths seem to cross daily, and she is finding it harder and harder to say no to the injured and angry man next door. But she’s been scarred one too many times in her life, and even though this Gallagher looks good enough to eat, she knows that sometimes, sating that craving is the worst thing she can do.

Owen is my new book boyfriend. I totally fell for this overly organized, sexy, caring and a little geeky man. How could I not love a man that has a thing for post it. He’s dedicated and loyal. Owen likes a woman in jeans, is amazing good with his hands and has a huge heart.
Liz is one complex cookie. She’s strong, smart, incredibly hard working and always giving herself. However relationships are something altogether different. Liz has many layers, making her an interesting and deep character.
Liz and Owen are amazing together. They experience an instant attraction, share intense chemistry and creative a passion all their own. Owen is a wonderfully patient man while Liz battles to peel away some of those layers of hers. Passion Restored was a very intense emotional read for me. Liz and Owen very easily captured the hearts of readers.
Carrie Ann Ryan never fails to deliver a book that makes your feel, is sexy as all get out and gives a lot of heart. Passion Restored, is a different type of book for Ms. Ryan that this reader believes showcase her talent beautifully.

ARC Review: Love Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan

Love Restored LOVE RESTORED

Carrie Ann Ryan

Gallagher Brothers Series, Book 1

Paperback
Expected publication: September 13th 2016 by Pink Ink Books

In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…

Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.

Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

4.5 Stars

Carrie Ann Ryan’s Love Restored is a highly emotional and sexy read that I couldn’t put down.

Graham is a bearded and tattooed, grumpy and brooding, total alpha male.  A man who is trying to heal and having a hard time. Blake is the definition of what a strong woman is. She is smart and witty. A woman who is always looking over her shoulder.

Graham and Blake fight their attraction with everything they have until they can’t stand it anymore.  The chemistry is amazing even when they are at each other necks. Tragic events from both their pasts, leaving them walking on eggshells in the world. Layers of emotions and heart breaking moments had this reader crying on three separate occasions while reading. Separately Graham and Blake, hold the key to long running happiness if they could just see through the pain and hurt in front of them.

Love Restored just became my favorite Carrie Ann Ryan book.  Blake and Graham pulled me in from the beginning and had me hanging on until the end.  Delicate subjects, troubled pasts and learning to love again. Every feeling in the book seemed so real. Add in the dirty mouths of both Graham and Blake and the passion they display for is each other makes this story not only emotional but extremely sexy and beyond hot. Every Carrie Ann Ryan book is emotional, Love Restored is the icing on the cake. Grab some tissues and something strong to drink. You will need it for this one.
