The Montgomery Ink series continues with the most unlikely of romances between the one that got away and the man who can show her the world. Holly Rose fell in love with a Montgomery, but left him when he couldn’t love her back. She might have been the one to break the ties and ensure her ex’s happy ending, but now Holly’s afraid she’s missed out on more than a chance at forever. Though she’s always been the dependable good girl, she’s ready to take a leap of faith and embark on the journey of a lifetime. Brody Deacon loves ink, women, fast cars, and living life like there’s no tomorrow. The thing is, he doesn’t know if he has a tomorrow at all. When he sees Holly, he’s not only intrigued, he also hears the warnings of danger in his head. She’s too sweet, too innocent, and way too special for him. But when Holly asks him to help her grab the bull by the horns, he can’t help but go all in. As they explore Holly’s bucket list and their own desires, Brody will have to make sure he doesn’t fall too hard and too fast. Sometimes, people think happily ever afters don’t happen for everyone, and Brody will have to face his demons and tell Holly the truth of what it means to truly live life to the fullest…even when they’re both running out of time
I really enjoyed this novella. I went right ahead and purchased all the other books, I had the first book but the others I purchased. I can't wait to dive into them.  I can't believe I hadn't heard about this series before what was I doing with my life.

I really loved how realistic this seemed.  It was a simple, sweet romance, that was a really quick read that engaged you from the beginning.  I absolutely fell in love with Holly, she was such an amazing woman.  Reminded me so much of me; she was willing to try some great adventures even if to others they didn't seem that wild.  I loved how much she was confident with her life and love but also like most women would have her moments of doubt.  When I was in college I really into trying everything I could, and I used so many books to help me with ideas, I really loved finding new things and places to go, even if no one else wanted to go.    I really loved that for Holly she was doing this not because she was completely unhappy with her life but because she didn't want to be bored. She wanted to have a little bit of excitement, sometimes just trying a new restaurant was enough and sometimes she went all out.  I loved that Brody understood and complimented that instead of being the reason, he was there to back her.

Reading her and Brody's budding friendship that bloomed into something more.  They really laid the foundation for a good friendship first and that is what made them so awesome together. I really enjoyed their conversations while at the same time Carrie gave us the space to imagine how they really interacted.

I really enjoyed the glimpses of old friends and saw how much they have bloomed as well.  My favorite parts where the conversations in between the friends, the way they all seemed to care so much about each other and had each other's backs. I can't wait to completely catch up and get the books coming out this year as well.

This is such a lovely book and I kept imagining that the boys here knew the Marked Men from Jay Crownover's series and it made me love the series even more ( I know they don't crossover, but hey that's what fan fiction is for).

I enjoyed this and finished in just one day and have already started in on the others and would highly recommend this one.
Happy Reading

2017 Weekly Wrap Up 8-15th

Welcome back to the blog my loves. I hope you've had a rally good reading week.  I really had another good reading week this week.  It's not in quantity it's definitely in the quality of the books I read.  This week I completed three books and got three more on the hooks, so hopefully next week I'll have those on the read list.

Now let's talk about what I read.  I read A Christmas Prayer by Kimberla Lawson Roby.  I ended up giving this one four stars. I really got engaged to the story and wanted to read more so this went quickly.  I enjoyed the length of the story but wished we had gotten some more from it.  I will have a full review later.  *although I might save it for next yule*

I also read another my ARCs that I have on the list, I'm looking forward to sharing my full review later in the month on the blog on January 26th. Any Time Any Place is the second book in the family saga and I loved it.  I have once again added have added the first book on my tbr.

Then I decided to try out the erotica series I was recommended by one of my favorite Booktubers.  This series is fantastically erotic and sensual.  I can't wait to read the rest of the series.  This is so steamy, definitely highly recommend.

I'm going into next week with my reading lists still wide open and I'm just going to roll with it.  Let me know what you are doing on your challenges.
