Montgomery Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

Entire Series Character Study
Who else is gearing up for the release of Ink Exposed on the 29th? I have an ARC of the book that's been tempting me beyond belief! I'm saving it for my travel this upcoming weekend when I know I'll be able to fully focus and enjoy Alex and Tabby's story. I want to dive in so dang bad!

In honor of the upcoming release I've put together a character study playlist for the Montgomery Ink series. I didn't include all the novellas, but each of the five full-length books in the series has gotten their own theme song. I'll post a theme song for Ink Exposed during release week.

I can't recommend Carrie Ann Ryan's work enough. Each and every one of her books that I've read, I've adored. Also of note, she has several box sets available! The box sets are completely fabulous for those of us looking to catch up. I have her box set of the Redwood Pack on my Xmas list.

Delicate Ink (Montgomery Ink #1) by Carrie Ann Ryan

Release: October 14, 2014
Romance Subgenre: Contemporary Romance

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.

Miranda Montgomery might be the youngest of the Montgomery clan, but that doesn’t means 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.

After years of being emotionally beaten down, her husband has finally left her and now she’s forced to find her way once again.

He might have only been her best friend, but he held his true emotions close to the vest. Now he’s back in town and in Meghan’s life. Only he needs to decide if that’s enough for him…and her.

Their journey from friends to lovers is a slow burn of seduction and pain. When Meghan’s past comes back to haunt them both, the two of them will have to stand closer together or be torn apart by their own misgivings forever.

Written in Ink(Montgomery Ink #4) by Carrie Ann Ryan

Release: October 13th, 2015
Romance Subgenre: Contemporary Romance

There's nothing worse for a writer than missing a deadline. For Griffin Montgomery, his failure to do what he loves comes at a blow. He didn't understand how it was affecting his life until his well-meaning family intercedes. His sisters have hired him a new personal assistant and he's outraged--that is, until he sees who it is.

Autumn Minor is light on her feet and a bare memory for most people she meets. She does her best to blend in everywhere she lives, even if it's only for a short period of time. Making sure no one truly notices her is the only way she's survived this long. Only when she meets Griffin and the rest of the Montgomerys, she's afraid she won't be able to let go when its time to run.

Though the two begin a tentative but explosive relationship, they know it can't last forever. Neither of them are made for the long haul when it comes to love and romance. When the demons from Autumn's past find her and put both their lives at risk, Griffin will stop at nothing to protect her. In the end, though, he'll be the one who needs a second chance.

“I Wish I Was” by Maren Morris
I'm not the hero in the story
I'm not the girl that gets the glory

And I'm not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was

Ink Enduring(Montgomery Ink #5) by Carrie Ann Ryan

Release: June 14th, 2016
Romance Subgenre: Contemporary Romance

Jake Gallagher knew from the moment he saw Maya that she was the one for him—it had the same breath-taking intensity as when he’d first set eyes on Border. Only life never turns out the way one plans, and now he’s falling for someone else...or at least he thinks he is. Maya Montgomery never should have looked past the friendship she already had. Now that she has, she can’t stop thinking about Jake and what he means to her. When a mysterious stranger from Jake’s past shows up at their door, she’s forced to admit that if she doesn’t take the risk of a lifetime, she’ll regret it for the rest of her days.

Border Gentry walked away without a second glance once because of what could happen if he let go, but now he’s back and ready to see what he’s missed. He’s been on the road a long time and has seen things no man should ever see, yet once he rediscovers the broody Jake and meets the inked and fierce Maya, they’re like a balm to his soul and he realizes what path his future should take.

It will take more than sizzling chemistry and a heat that never dies for the three of them to overcome their pasts. And when someone from the outside wants to stand in their way, it’s not only their hearts on the line…but also their lives.

“The Heart Wants What It Wants” by Selena Gomez

The bed's getting cold and you're not here
The future that we hold is so unclear
But I'm not alive until you call
And I'll bet the odds against it all
Save your advice 'cause I won't hear
You might be right but I don't care
There's a million reasons why I should give you up
But the heart wants what it wants

About Carrie Ann Ryan

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.
