Publisher's Summary

The Montgomery Ink saga from NYT best-selling author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with a second-chance romance sure to tug at your heartstrings.

When men in uniform showed up on Eliza Wilder-Strong’s doorstep, she knew her life would be irrevocably altered. She not only lost her husband but the future she’d carefully planned. A year later, she’s looking to start over - beginning with a solo healing vacation. Only she never expects to see a familiar, tempting face along the way. 

Beckett Montgomery refuses to want his little sister’s best friend - especially because she’s a widow. Yet there’s no stopping the connection between them. As the temptation to give in intensifies between them, so do the reasons they shouldn’t stay together. 

Painful ghosts from both of their pasts stand in their way, and sometimes it’s the living that can haunt you when you’re not looking.

A Must have to add your library

I absolutely love Carrie Ann Ryan and her writing style how the characters grow and develop through out the story. Beckett Montgomery the eldest of the siblings and Eliza is Annabelle s best friend.
This story is beautiful and swoony very steamy of course a HEA
that bonus epilogue just makes me want the next one now...

Aaron and Emma narrating the story was a total bonus, they being the characters to life and I really enjoy listening to them both.

Loved Eliza and Beckett

Ever since hearing the clip, Broken in the Inked Persuasion audio, I was curious to see how Eliza's story would unfold. I was excited to see her healing and living life again. It was heartbreaking to learn that her marriage wasn't all that she thought it was, but she had her girlfriends and their families and her brothers to lean on, even when she found it difficult to ask for help. Beckett was such a sweetheart, and I loved how fiercely protective he was of Eliza.
Emma and Aaron are wonderful and did a great job bringing the main characters and various family members to life.

loved this story

This was such an emotional story. Eliza is a widow that is trying to find the right way for her to move on. She has obstacles thrown in her way that make her question everything. Then there is Beckett who also has something in his past he is trying to deal with. These 2 souls were meant to help each other start living their lives. Seeing the evolution of their relationship is so good. I was rooting for these 2 people. I loved the narrators for this book. They brought th echaracters to life and had me finding every opportunity to press play.

too many characters to keep track of.

So many friends and family characters in this story. Every time one was mentioned or was involved had to try to remember who they were.

Slow burn friends to lovers story

As soon as I read the blurb for Inked Obsession by Carrie Ann Ryan I was all in. So, when I had a chance to listen to the audio, I jumped at the chance. Narrated by Emma Wilder and Aaron Shedlock, they truly brought Beckett and Eliza’s journey to life. We first met these characters in Inked Persuasion, the first book in the Montgomery Ink: Fort Collins series, and though I do suggest you read it first, you do not have too. I did, however, love the first book and highly recommend it.

Here we have Beckett, Annabelle’s brother, and her best friend Eliza. Eliza is a widow learning her normal and struggling on how to move forward. She is lost and the last thing she expected was to get the news she did. Where does she go from here? Beckett is hiding secrets from everyone who cares about him. They are hurting, but neither knows how to move forward. Yet neither can deny how things are changing between them. Can they let it happen? Their lives are too intermixed, and their friendship means too much to both of them. Can they find their happily ever after? I loved listening to Inked Obsession by Carrie Ann Rya. It was a slow burn friends to lovers romance that was emotional and touching.

Happy listening!

Omg this story of Eliza and Beckett had me on the edge of my seat. I loved their story and Carrie Ann has done it again. Grabs reader and hold them in story until the end wanting more.

Narrators did an amazing job bringing Inked Obsession to life. I really enjoyed listening to this unfolded. They out did themselves and brought Carrie Ann Ryan book to life. Carrie Ann knows how to write an amazing story and her narrators are amazing.

Really enjoyed these two

Eliza and Beckett are friends and have hung out with their other friends and his family. She is a widow and not looking to be out in the dating world again. Beckett has felt an attraction for her but with her recently being a widow he doesn’t feel the timing is right. When the anniversary of her husband’s passing starts to bear she ends up on a vacation planned by one of her brothers. Beckett needs some so time to unstress and goes on a week away. Fate steps in and they end up in the same area on their separate vacations. These two have good chemistry and the friendship first helps to build that. Can a new relationship work for the two of them? These two help each other a lot with the secrets that they are keeping from theirs families. Another great Montgomery family story. The narrators did a great job on this story and bringing the characters out.

Back in the Montgomery world

In the Montgomery world, there is always a lot going on. And here there’s no difference. Beckett is fighting through memories of a horrific event he lived through, while keeping it a secret. And Eliza is living through the death of her husband in the military almost a year ago. Until she finds out there was even more then his death that she has to deal with. But soon, they find out they can work through their problems together. Aaron Shedlock and Emma Wilder do a great job of bringing Beckett & Eliza to life as you listen to them narrate this.

Inked Obsession

Two people in the same circle but never truly together. Eliza has been one of the Montgomery clan. Even though she was not born into the family the Montgomery’s have kept her close and treated her one of their own. They have stood by her through it all. One Montgomery has always had her attention, but Eliza never thought Beckett was for her. Little did Eliza know that she had Beckett’s attention as well. The two are each going through their own problems and end up at the same resort trying to do some healing of their own. Sparks fly but will it help or hurt these two?

This is a sweet story about love and friendship both intertwining with all the Montgomery’s and those that they hold dear. Eliza and Beckett make a good couple. Eliza is much stronger than she thinks, and Beckett sees the woman that she truly is, and Eliza brings out the best in Beckett. It was nice to see their relationship grow and see the trust earned. While I did enjoy this story the dramatics of all the characters when faced with emotions was a bit much for me. I like the characters but did not always like the melodramatics. I love seeing the family together and how they cared for each other and were always there for one another. Narrators Emma Wilder and Aaron Shedlock did a nice job of keeping the story flowing and giving the characters life.

Fantastic 2nd book

Book 2 of Montgomery Fort Collins series by Carrie Ann Ryan
Eliza is newer members of the clang but fits in really well with other characters.
Eliza was married military man that was always away a lot of the time this is how she became friends with the Montgomery lot especially the women.
Beckett is a Montgomery and works in family architects/construction company. He is always had a thing for Eliza but has kept his distance because she was married to Marshal but when he died things changed he tried to keep his distance but that was very difficult.
Eliza and Beckett have all secrets that eventually they tell each other and were able to work through their issues.
The chemistry is off the charts I love the way relationship develops The romantic scenes are incredibly lovely and sexy at the same time.
I did listen to this as an audiobook and as always Carrie Ann Ryan does a amazing job writing but also Emma Wilder is a fantastic narrator so you can do both male and female accents and does it with a fantastic quality this is the first time I’ve listened to Aaron Shedlock And even though I did enjoy him as a narrator I won’t lie at the at times I did feel that Joe Arden does have a better job which is mean to say but he does and I absolutely love him.
Looking forward to more in the series cannot be Carrie Ann Ryan for romance book in any genre really hope that Joe Arden is in the future ones because I do love him

Brilliant

I knew reading the blurb that this book would be heartbreakingly beautiful. It went past every expectation and hope that I had for this book. The characters were so well developed and the back and forth with their emotions was so very believable. I loved this book and can’t wait for more
