The Montgomery Ink saga from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with a friends to lovers romance that breaks all of their own rules.
Instead of walking away with a marriage proposal, Paige Montgomery ended up broken hearted and pregnant.
Now she has to figure out how to begin her life again alone.
She refuses to fall for another man, yet every time she sees Lee Grier, her traitorous heart aches for him. It doesn’t matter he’s her brother’s best friend and wants to be her rock in the storm. She knows she has to weather the oncoming pressures on her own.
When they can no longer fight the pull between them, they’ll have to remember that passion can only shelter them from reality for so long and letting themselves fall will be the hardest step yet.
This wasn’t one of my favorite books in this series by Ryan. I did love Lee. He’s awesome. He’s dedicated and loves Paige and the baby. I liked Paige, but for someone who’s so fiercely independent, she just wasn’t in this book. I did hate Colton and his selfishness. It’s a good thing Paige doesn’t end up with that guy. I had a problem with the way the plot played out near the end and Lee’s personal problem that he was dealing with. (I don’t want to give that away, so won’t go into detail.) Anyway, it was okay, but would not be on my reread list. This was a sweet romance and if you’re a CAR fan, like me, you’ll want to read it. 3.5 stars
