Derek Hawkins, a tattoo artist at Montgomery Ink whom we've first met in DELICATE INK and kept making appearances through out the Montgomery Ink series. He had his rules when it came to women, one night a month, no last names and no promises. Well that's the deal he made with O.
Olivia Madison, a freelance editor made a deal with the gorgeous stranger D. But what the latter didn't know was she had her own set of rules. Don't fall in love, no commitment and never tell D the truth.
She knew who Derek was cause he was the biy she'd lost her heart to at a tender age. The one she never expected to see again and the one she knew she shouldn't be with. So she called their arrangement off which didn't sit well with Derek.
They never intended to fall for one another again during their affair was over but they did. Derek told his co-workers who also happened to be his friends about O. And fate had plans for him and his mystery woman.
Turned they both shared a painful past, one that left both of them blaming themselves. When they put all their on the table, they realized that they've broken their own rules years ago.
It was a delightful treat to catch up with old friends and meeting new ones. Loved how the Montgomery clan was supportive of Derek and Olivia. In the end they got their HEA.
INKED NIGHTS is a MONTGOMERY INK novella by Carrie Ann Ryan. What an emotional, exhilarating and beautiful ride. Magnificent job by Carrie Ann Ryan. Two thumbs up!
