Review Submitted By: Korena for Alpha Book Review
On the wrong side of thirty, Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, his inked sleeves and scruffy beard isn’t the suave business appearance some women crave. Only finding a woman who can deal with his job, as a tattoo artist and owner of Montgomery Ink, his seven meddling siblings, and his own gruff attitude won’t be easy.
Finding a man is the last thing on Sierra Elder’s mind. A recent transplant to Denver, her focus is on opening her own boutique. Wanting to cover up scars that run deeper than her flesh, she finds in Austin a man that truly gets to her—in more ways than one.
Although wary, they embark on a slow, tempestuous burn of a relationship. When blasts from both their pasts intrude on their present, however, it will take more than a promise of what could be to keep them together.
(Our own eBook.)
Sierra Elder is trying to escape her past and put a positive foot forward and opens her dream boutique. Austin Montgomery is co-owner of Montgomery Ink that is located across from Sierra’s boutique. Austin was blasting an ex-girlfriend, Shannon, when Sierra made her way into Montgomery Ink and got caught in the crossfire. Sierra and Austin didn’t get off on the right note.
Sierra was set up to consult with an artist for a piece she wanted to cover her scars of her past, the artist ….none other than Austin himself. Sierra and Austin have chemistry together. They moved into a relationship fairly quickly. Sierra kept questioning if she was doing the right thing to stay with Austin or her past would soon collide. Austin’s past soon takes a right hook into their lives.
This was a quick read. I enjoyed the Montgomery family and how close they are. Austin being the older brother is very protective of his siblings. I can’t wait to read more from this series from Carrie Ann Ryan.
Reviewer’s Note: This is reread for me! I enjoyed this book that I will keep this for a rainy (or sunny!) day!!
