In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…
Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.
Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.
This book was unexpected, it had many twists and turns throughout the novel. Not having read the “Montgomery Ink Series” it made things more interesting with the characters being all new. Of course I will now read that series to get a better understanding on those characters but for Blake and Graham their story took me to places I never thought possible. To have a lose and to find love again took strength I was in awe of Graham and for Blake to go to the end of the earth for her loved ones also showed strength I was in awe of.
Graham to his brothers Owen and Murphy.
Graham rolled his eyes. “Care, my ass.”“Hey, it’s Owen who cares about your ass,” Murphy drawled. “I’m just here because you two were, and I didn’t want to feel left out.”
Rowan to Blake.
“And I went over the words upside down. It helps keep them in my brain, you know.”Since Rowan’s back was to her, Blake rolled her eyes. “Are you sure they don’t just fall out?”
Her vagina was on strike, apparently, and she was afraid it would never forgive her for keeping away from Graham as long as she had, even though he’d been so damn close. And from the way Graham always looked so… pent up… she had a feeling his dick wasn’t happy either.
The song that suits this book is “Closer (Feat Halsey) by The Chainsmokers.
I rate this book 4 stars.
