About ADORING INKThe 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.
Read a Sneak Peek of ADORING INK:Holly Rose needed to come. Badly. And hopefully she would. The man above her moved with such heat that she knew she was blushing, but she didn’t care. She just needed him to work his magic so she could finally crest that peak and end up a boneless pile of limbs. She clutched at his tattooed shoulders before sliding her hands down his chest, raking her nails over his thick muscles and the ink that covered his skin. He thrust deeply inside her, and she arched her back, taking more of him in. Her breath came in pants, and her body shook, sweat-slick from hours of lovemaking with no pause. Then she looked up and froze. Once again, her Dream Man was just a blur. A thickly muscled male with ink but no face, no features showing her who he was. No eyes giving her a glimpse of the man deep inside. She reached out to cup his face, hoping she was wrong. But she wasn’t. The alarm pulled her out of sleep in that instant, leaving her right on the edge once again, and confused as hell about the recurring dream that never made sense. Holly let out a sigh and rolled over to press the button on her phone. Unfortunately, she didn’t have time to hit snooze and go back to sleep, so she forced herself to sit up. Hitting snooze was one of her favorite pastimes since she had the most comfortable bed ever, but she had to be an adult and forego that. She was the kind of person that, once she sat up, she was awake and slightly functional, but it was the sitting up part that was the hardest. She loved sleeping in but couldn’t do it most days because of her job. Heck, she couldn’t even slumber on weekends most times thanks to the piles of grading she had. She might only teach first grade, but her kids had books and binders full of state-mandated homework and classwork to complete. Holly’s head hurt just thinking about it.

Title: Adoring Ink
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
A little less than a year ago, I picked up a book in the 1001 Dark Nights series and loved it. Then, because I couldn't get enough of the author or the series, I picked up another of Carrie Ann Ryan's novels and plowed through it, confirming everything I felt wasn't a one time experience. Now, after reading more than a few of Carrie Ann Ryan's novels, I got to experience Adoring Ink, a novella length story about Holly and Brody who, at one time, tried to make it work but went their own separate ways because Brody couldn't commit or admit his feelings for Holly. And now, together once again, the pair must try to find a middle ground as they deal with one another.
I loved how Carrie Ann Ryan paints her couples - they are real, relatable and sexy as all heck. Who wouldn't want to go through a bucket list with a man like Brody or (for men), a woman like Holly. Watching these two try to avoid dealing with their feelings was the one part where anyone would wish they could shake some sense into them in the hopes of opening their eyes to what's in front of them. I love how Carrie Ann Ryan bring her stories to life and I for one will be watching for her next releases in the upcoming years.
