Reviews Tempting Boundaries + Forever Ink + Hidden Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

Title: Tempting Boundaries
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Series: Montgomery Ink
Release Date: December 9th 2014


Decker Kendrick 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.

Review by Iza

I liked this more than the first; the story line flowed easier and it didn't feel like it was crammed with too many things.

Decker and Miranda's story was bound to be good and it didn't disappoint, though there were chapters that were not about them but still kinda important to the story line.

This is the second time I've read it and I have a feeling I'll reread it again because I really like Miranda and though Decker managed to piss me off a time or two, he wormed himself into my heart and I would never say no to a Decker. Plus, he's bearded. I mean, really.

I'm dying to read about Maya and her hero! *fingers crossed it is Jake*

4 1/2 stars and I recommend it. The scenes were kinky and hot and I just love a man that knows when to grovel.

 Title: Forever Ink
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
 Series: Montgomery Ink
 Release Date: March 24th 2015


Callie Masters loves ink. After finally getting her own chair in Montgomery Ink, she’s ready to start being a full time artist, rather than only an apprentice. When Austin, her former boss, gives her one very broody man as her first client, she jumps at the chance to make him hers—in and out of the shop.

Morgan McAllister is old money, old connections, and recently has been feeling just old. When he goes in to get his full back piece done after years of putting it off, the bright-eyed woman with the sly smile catches his eye. Between her age, attitude, and views on life, he knows she’s all wrong for him, but that doesn’t mean she’ll keep out of his thoughts.

When life throws them together after a few close calls, Morgan and Callie will have to trust in themselves and what their relationship will mean. Between conniving family members, blondes with too much time on their hands, and their own misgivings, trust in the bedroom and out of it won’t come easy.

Review by Iza

"She was Callie Masters. Kickass tattoo artist."
I'm starting to get the hang of this series and enjoy it!

I've read the first two - enjoyed the first, really liked the second - and this one's just as good.

Older hero + younger heroine = happy me. Really, I love me some older sexy beast of a man.

And Morgan is just that. He's rich, successful and he's a Dom in the bedroom. Callie is young, wild and free and she's a tattoo artist, so not what Morgan should be looking for!

But opposites attract and what society thinks - Morgan's mom is a major hag - doesn't matter. These two are insanely hot together and, while it's a novella, it was still good and still had some feels to it.

I am looking forward to reading more. 4 stars.

Title: Hidden Ink
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Series: Montgomery Ink
 Release Date: January 12th 2016

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the long-awaited romance between the café owner next door and the tattoo artist who's loved her from afar.

Hailey Monroe knows the world isn't always fair, but she's picked herself up from the ashes once before and if she needs to, she'll do it again. It's been years since she first spotted the tattoo artist with a scowl that made her heart skip a beat, but now she's finally gained the courage to approach him. Only it won't be about what their future could bring, but how to finish healing the scars from her past.

Sloane Gordon lived through the worst kinds of hell yet the temptation next door sends him to another level. He's kept his distance because he knows what kind of man he is versus what kind of man Hailey needs. When she comes to him with a proposition that sends his mind whirling and his soul shattering, he'll do everything in his power to protect the woman he cares for and the secrets he's been forced to keep.

Review by Iza

I'll keep it short and spoiler free.

I really like this series, it gets better and better with each book. I enjoyed each of them, so far. Some more than others. That having been said, I feel these two deserved a novel of their own. Things felt a bit rushed, not as expanded as they could have been and boy, would it have been awesome then!

They both have secrets, they're both broken. I feel that you can't just tell a story for these two awesome characters in just a novella, so I do hope we'll get more on them.

Yes, I liked it but I wanted to love it.

3.5 stars. I want to thank the author for the copy given in exchange for an honest review.  

Author Bio

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
