Seduced In Ink (Montgomery Ink: Boulder # 4) by Carrie Ann Ryan
The Montgomery Ink: Boulder series concludes with a fake relationship where the heat and emotional connection are anything but false.
The moment Madison McClard’s parents tell her that her ex is getting married, there’s no getting out of their latest scheme. One moment she’s trying to get out of their clutches. The next, they’re telling her exactly who she’ll marry to save the family name. The one thing her parents don’t count on, however: Aaron Montgomery.
Aaron Montgomery didn’t mean to lie. Still, as soon as he overheard Madison’s dilemma, the words fell out of his mouth. Now, he’s fake engaged to a woman he barely knows, who also happens to be his new brother-in-law’s cousin.
As the deception mounts, so does the attraction. They told themselves it was only a ruse, but as feelings ramp and dangers surge, this Montgomery may have just met his match.
He simply has to fight to keep her.
First Impression? Ok, so we have another book where friends have to pretend to be getting married, to prevent some horrible thing from happening. Just like every other friends to lovers book out there, right? Nope. I should have known better! This author is one of my go to authors for a reason. She takes an over done trope, and makes it into a fantastic story that completely takes me by surprise! I’ve gotta say, I’m always glad I picked up and read one of her books. And this one is no exception!
Madison is a confusing character. At times, she is so strong, such an amazingly brave woman, but at others, she is timid and afraid. She has a horrific home life, but also such sweet memories of a better time. And Aaron! He is absolutely loyal, giving, and perfect for Madison! Together, the gave us a story that was both sweet, and funny! Add in a whole lotta drama, and a little bit of danger, and this author has another winner on her hands! I couldn’t help but laugh at times, and feel sad at others. There was also a healthy bit of “what the heck?!?” and just a dash of “Oh no, she didn’t!!!” Let’s just say, my emotions and thought ran the gamut reading this book, and I’ve fallen in love with yet another set of Montgomerys!
