About ADORING INK 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: Carrie Ann Ryan is one of those authors that I discovered mostly on accident, and everything I've read since has made me just want to read more and more. Every story has been the perfect mix between sweet and sexy, with Adoring Ink fitting the mold perfectly. I loved Brody, and Holly was just so adorable.

I had a hard time getting into this one in the very beginning, however. Don't get me wrong, it smoothed itself out after the first couple chapters. But those first few felt almost stilted, maybe? Or maybe not genuine is a little more accurate. Having read other books by this author, I know she's better than that, which is why I was so surprised - and why I continued to push through despite the so-so start. And I'm glad I did, because the rest of the book was worth it.

Cover Lovin: Fits with the rest of the series!

Recommendation: You can jump right in, though at least some prior knowledge would be helpful.
Final Rating: THREE out of FIVE stars (3/5)! I still love this author, but the rocky start brought this down to three stars.
Happy Reading!
