Publisher's Summary

Shepard Montgomery loves the feel of a needle in his hands, the ink that he lays on another, and the thrill he gets when his art is finished, appreciated, and loved. At least that's the way it used to be. Now he's struggling to figure out why he's a tattoo artist at all as he wades through the college frat boys and tourists who just want a thrill, not a permanent reminder of their trip. Once he sees the Ice Princess walk through Midnight Ink's doors though, he knows he might just have found the inspiration he needs.

Shea Little has spent her life listening to her family's desires. She went to the best schools, participated in the most proper of social events, and almost married the man her family wanted for her. When she ran from that and found a job she actually likes, she thought she'd rebelled enough. Now though, she wants one more thing--only Shepard stands in the way. She'll not only have to let him learn more about her in order to get inked, but find out what it means to be truly free. This is the prequel to the Montgomery Ink series.

    "It was ok"

    I enjoyed the story and the narrator was yummy brought the story to life but it just felt a little choppy. Like half the story was missing. Over all it was good.

    "Cute and Short"

    This is an interesting quick listen -- a good way to start a new series. I like the story well enough but it just felt like something was missing, too much was left out. Maybe the rest of the series will shed some light but I'm undecided if I'm going to listen to the rest of the series. I was intrigued by Shep and Shea and hope they will turn up in other books in the series. Gregory Salinas did an okay job as the narrator but the audio seemed a bit choppy.

    It was worth the reduced price I paid. I will probably listen to other books written by Carrie Ann Ryan and/or narrated by Gregory Salinas.

    "Steamy romance makes for some great listening"

    Carrie Ann Ryan writes steamy romance. I’ve read a number of her books and enjoyed each and every one. I won an audio copy of Ink Inspired the prequel to the Montgomery Ink series and listened to it while on a plane headed to vacation. It is one thing to read a smoking hot love scene it is another to have a smooth sexy male voice describing every detail in your ears. I haven’t blushed so hard in a long time. I don’t know what my fellow travelers thought but I had a great time listening to Shep and Shea get together.

    "Yummy Smexy Series"

    Oh yeah!!! Give me a big burly tattoo artist any day of the week!!! Yummy!!! Sigh! I am all about this smexy book!

    Really quick read with a great couple. Shea is more reserved on the outside but ready to break free, she needs delicious bad boy Shep to help her out!! They have a great dynamic and is is a really fun read.

    The time jumps are a bit abrupt, I know it was a novella gotta keep it short. Still I would have loved spending more time with them.

    This book certainly delivers on the smexy!!! Oh Hells yeah!! For a short read it packs one heck of a steamy whallop!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by the always yummy Gregory Salinas. He has a smexy voice that infuses the hawt scenes with even more heat! Great tone and pace throughout the read. I was not sold on the mom's voice, kind of grating, but then so was she.

    Give me more!!! This is such a hot series, I need to read the rest of teh box set to get the scoop!!

    "Prequel"

    This was an interesting prequel to this series. It was well written and steamy. Definitely a fast listen. Not sure if it left me wanting more because I happened to listen out of order.

    "Inspired Deliciousness"

    This is a short listen that's part of a larger series. The plot is light, the couple fun and the sex delicious. It's all about the bad boy with tats! My main problem with the story is the time lapses which pulled me in and out of the story, disrupting the experience. For a short audiobook, it delivers on entertainment especially with the sexy narrator.

    "Great easy read"
    Any additional comments?

    Great story with a tattoo alpha male and sweet girl. He helps her break out of her shell and stand up for herself and I love how he is always there to support her. I do wish we could learn more about Shea's mom and why she is as horrid as she is but I understand this is a novella and no time to do this.The narrator was not my favorite and I did have a difficult time at times with him. Can't wait to read the next one as I am hooked now on the series after this read.
