The Montgomery Ink Series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with the brother who keeps his secret and the one woman he shouldn't want.

Everly Law married the love of her life and on the eve of giving birth to their twins, lost him in a tragic accident. Now she's a single mother working overtime at her bookstore trying to make sure her boys have the life they deserve. Her life is busy enough without her adding dating a Montgomery. As past secrets come to light, she'll need Storm more than ever—even if she doesn't realize it.

Storm Montgomery has spent his life atoning for sins that only few know he's committed. When he lost his best friend, he promised his widow that he'd always be there for her—even when she wanted nothing to do with him. But when a single touch ignites passions they've both buried deep inside, he'll have to remember exactly who is in his arms and that taking chances might be far more dangerous than they bargained for.

4 Inked up and sweet Montgomery brother stars!

In Everly Law's worst nightmares, she never imagined losing her husband in a horrific plane crash, leaving her pregnant and alone to raise their twin boys. Her husband's BFF Storm Montgomery has been a godsend in the three years since Jackson's death, helping her with whatever her little family needs, but lately, things between them have been strained. Neither have really ever thought of the other "that way," but soon they can't think of each other without wanting to rip each other's clothes off. But as a specter of their past rears its ugly head, Everly and Storm will have to work hard to have any chance of making their romance into something lasting.

The Montgomery Ink series is one I haven't read a lot of, but what I have read I do love! INKED EXPRESSIONS is no exception. The tension between Everly and Storm was strained in the beginning, despite their easy relationship when Jackson was alive. Once they both realized that their friendship had the potential to be the elusive "more," the two became explosive. It was such as natural progression from friends to lovers, and Everly's sons had a seamless transition since Storm's the only father figure they've ever truly had. Everly could be a bit abrasive at times, which is understandable given the hell she's been put through. And I really didn't understand the need for Storm to hide his "secret" for 20 years…it seemed like a super stupid move…but hey, men, amirite? Even with those few negatives, the book was still an excellent read and I can't wait to pick up more in this series!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; mild violence, mild attempted murder.
