INK ENDURING by Carrie Ann Ryan ~Blog Tour w/ Review & Giveaway

ie-coverAbout INK ENDURING

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a forbidden love between three friends and a past that they can’t escape.

Jake Gallagher knew from the moment he saw Maya that she was the one for him—it had the same breath-taking intensity as when he’d first set eyes on Border. Only life never turns out the way one plans, and now he’s falling for someone else…or at least he thinks he is.

Maya Montgomery never should have looked past the friendship she already had. Now that she has, she can’t stop thinking about Jake and what he means to her. When a mysterious stranger from Jake’s past shows up at their door, she’s forced to admit that if she doesn’t take the risk of a lifetime, she’ll regret it for the rest of her days.

Border Gentry walked away without a second glance once because of what could happen if he let go, but now he’s back and ready to see what he’s missed. He’s been on the road a long time and has seen things no man should ever see, yet once he rediscovers the broody Jake and meets the inked and fierce Maya, they’re like a balm to his soul and he realizes what path his future should take.

It will take more than sizzling chemistry and a heat that never dies for the three of them to overcome their pasts. And when someone from the outside wants to stand in their way, it’s not only their hearts on the line…but also their lives.

Ink Enduring was my first Carrie Ann Ryan book but it will not be my last! This is book 5 in the Montgomery Ink series but it can be read as a standalone. I read it as a standalone and had no problems keeping up or understanding what was going on. I just know that I will for sure go back and read the other 4 books and novellas because I simply need more.

Jake first sees Maya from across a crowded night club. He finds her enticing and needs to learn more about the women in front of him. He needs her beneath him. After introductions are made intentions are firmly in place and they head to Jake’s house. They both want the same thing, each other.

After their shared time together days turn to weeks, then months before they see one another again. Jake finds he is to late and Maya has a boyfriend. He knows he can’t lose her because they share a special connection. So instead of calling the whole thing off he decides that they can be friends, to him friends with Maya is better than losing her all together.

After years pass unbreakable friendships have formed, and now Maya is the one fighting down her feelings for Jake. Jake now has a girlfriend that he is about ready to make a long term commitment to. Maya can feel Jake slipping through her fingers. She knows she can’t lose Jake but how does she hold onto him when he is with someone else?

Insert Border. Who is he you ask? Well this is where things get interesting and start to heat up. Border is Jake’s old flame. That’s right our sexy as hell, inked up man is bisexual. With Border back and surprising Jake after just up and leaving several years before, Jake’s world is now turned upside down.

How long can Jake push down his feelings for Maya? How long is it before the pull they feel consumes them? And where does Border fit into this equation?

This is a great friends to lovers novel. It kept me turning the pages to find out what would happen next. The inevitable can only be fought for so long before passion, wanting and need consume the three of them. If you love a good menage this is defiantly the book for you! God these three are HOT and honestly I wish there were more sex scenes than what there was. But for me it’s not all about a good panty melting scene that makes it a good read. It had heart, a great storyline, and left me wanting to read more about this triad. They simply completed each other.

About Carrie Ann Ryan

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
