Publisher's Summary

The Montgomery Ink saga from NYT best-selling author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with a friends-to-lovers romance that breaks all of their own rules.

Instead of walking away with a marriage proposal, Paige Montgomery ended up brokenhearted and pregnant.

Now she has to figure out how to begin her life again alone.

She refuses to fall for another man, yet every time she sees Lee Grier, her traitorous heart aches for him. It doesn’t matter he’s her brother’s best friend and wants to be her rock in the storm. She knows she has to weather the oncoming pressures on her own.

When they can no longer fight the pull between them, they’ll have to remember that passion can only shelter them from reality for so long, and letting themselves fall will be the hardest step yet.

Can I be an honorary Montgomery?

I want this family to adopt me! I’d love to be surrounded by a big, loving, supportive family.

I haven’t listened to every book in this series, but the few I have haven’t disappointed. I feel the chemistry, the heartache, the love in every story. Perfect combination of everything you’re looking for in a romance.

Great story!

I absolutely loved this story! It was a great read and I loved the characters. It was awesome getting to see Lee and Paige come together and build something. They have each had a crush/thing for the other but no idea and with intention of ever going there due to the fact that Lee is best friends with Paige's brothers. Paige has broken up with her boyfriend that has moved away across the country for a job/career opportunity (and finding out that they were at completely different places in the relationship) and has now found out that she is pregnant. It was great watching Lee step in and make sure that Paige had someone and not letting her push him away but giving her the space she needed without feeling alone. I love watching these two overcome the hurdles they had. Due to what happened with Lee when he was a teenager, he never expected to have a family but he just couldn't avoid forming one with Paige. This story pulled me in from beginning to end and was adorable in a lot of places. I really enjoyed this and holy crap with the teaser at the end regarding Archer (Paige's brother). I can't wait to get his story and catch up with the rest of these Montgomery's again.
The narrators did a fantastic job with this story and bringing it to life. I really enjoyed listening to it.

Love found in friendship

Two POV's represented by a narrator each in Paige's friends to lovers romance with a twist. This surprise pregnancy doesn't cement the parents' relationship back together, but rather further apart. You feel the characters through this amazing narrating duo.

Inked Craving

I feel like I have been waiting for this book forever. Paige is pregnant and alone after her boyfriend went to New York for work…. And trust me when I saw I wish her brothers had gotten their hands on him. I didn’t mind him much until this book. Now I hate him. Lee on the other hand was a side character in the other books. The friend that sometimes added to a conversation but one we really didn’t know much about. Boy, did he have a story to tell in this book. By the end of the book my heart was racing and I needed to hug all the characters. Not just Lee and Paige. I am a little sad this generation on Montgomerys will be coming to an end soon…. But I am excited to see the next generation find their ways. Oh and did I forget to mention Austin Montgomery makes an appearance?

As always Aaron and Emma make an amazing team that truly bring the book to life.

Beautiful!! Paige and Lee!!

Absolutely loved this story! It’s the fourth book of the series and is Paige and Lee’s story. Paige has always been with Colten and best friends with Lee. However things happen that Paige could have never seen coming. She needs a friend more than ever and Lee is the one to step into the role and never waver.

This story draws you in and you can’t stop listening the narrators did an amazing job of bringing the story to life.

Overall I throughly enjoyed it and always love the Montgomery’s!

Not your average book with a pregnant heroine

The heroine finds out she is pregnant with in the first few characters. After her boyfriend breaks up with her and moves across the country, she falls for her brothers Best friend, their love story is very slow to get off the ground.

Sweet, emotional and touching story

I recently listened to the audiobook of Inked Craving by Carrie Ann Ryan and loved it. Narrated by Aaron Shedlock and Emma Wilder, this was an emotional and touching story with so many feels. This is the fourth book in the Montgomery Ink Fort Collins series and though you can technically read each book as a standalone, you get more of the story by reading in order. This is Paige Montgomery’s story and for those reading from the beginning, we all wanted to know what her story would be and let me tell you, it was worth the wait. I loved Paige. She is strong, determined and caring. She thought she had found her happily ever after and instead she ends up with a broken heart and pregnant. She is set to do this on her own and stay away from men.

Enter Lee. Lee is her brother’s best friend and more importantly a family friend. He is always there for those who care about him and is very protective and caring. He is determined to be there for Paige, but suddenly lines get blurred and they begin to see what could be. But when both of them are wary of relationships, can they let the other in? I loved watching these two fall and interact with each other. Another great read by this author and I cannot wait for Archer’s story.

Happy listening!

Friends to Lovers and Brothers Best Friend

Gawd I have been waiting so long for Paige to figure out Colton was wasting her time. But she did not need the gift he left behind. But, in a way, it's what brought her and Lee together. So maybe Colton wasn't such a douche. Yes, yes he was. Never mind. But on to Lee and Paige and HEA. They start out as friends and he's just helping her through the pregnancy. But somewhere in the process they fall in love. Can you say Friends to Lovers and Brothers Best Friend? Yeah, we get them both. I just need to know one thing: Did he get the Montgomery tatoo?

A new start for Paige!

Paige was sure she was getting engaged but things happen. Now, what can she do with the lovely man that comes to the rescue? Lee is the first one to know about Paige’s woes and starts to win his way through her heart. I loved how they become friends and something more they don’t want to talk about. Lee is my new book boyfriend. He is too good and Paige get to keep him for herself. As always, I loved the family interaction, their loving meddling and that they are after all The Momntgomerys. There’s always that bit of scary drama, but there’s a cute happily ever after. I can’t wait for Archer’s book!
The narration awesome as always with Ms Wilder and Mr Shedlock.

Wow

So whenI started this one I was not prepared but I knew i had to trust Carrie Anns writing. I am so glad that I did, this was such a wonderful twist on the fake relationship and seeing them try to deny their feelings made this just soo good. The drama was that perfect balance that I have come to expect from Carrie where it’s appropriate for the story. There were however so many emotions that this story brought up and I was so happy with the ending.

The narration was so spot on i felt that it really pushed the story to that next level. As the narrators put so much emotion and personality int each character. This is a book that left me so happy to have read it..

Fantastic

Book 4 in Montgomery Ink: Fort Collins series by Carrie Ann Ryan
Paige is the baby sister and been waiting awhile for her book to eventually get done. Absolutely loved how Carrie Ann Ryan has put the tension in the other books between page and Leigh but been very subtle about it especially as Paige has had a boyfriend through any of the previous books who is Colton. Really love the surprise in this book and the way it develops and how Leigh and Paige finally get together and make a relationship out of a surprise that comes. Absolutely love the Montgomery books by Carrie Ann Ryan like if you really like these ones should check out other ones that she’s written especially of shifty paranormal books they were the first ones I found and loved ever since. The narrators for this book as usual were fantastic Carrie Ann Ryan picks the best for her audiobooks and worth every penny
