Book Release Blitz for Inked Devotion by Carrie Ann Ryan (REVIEW)…..

A road trip leads to big changes for two people needing answers, but they're left with more questions than answers after a drunken night leads to big changes for the two of them.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste and my impressions of Inked Devotion by Carrie Ann Ryan, the third installment in the Montgomery Ink: Fort Collins series, then add it to your bookshelf!

The Montgomery Ink saga from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with a road trip romance between two friends running from their past.
Brenna Garrett needs time to think about a major decision, but finds herself bringing Benjamin Montgomery with her. The problem? He’s her best friend’s twin, so there’s no escaping that familiar face.
Benjamin didn’t want to leave his family in a lurch, but Brenna isn’t the only one who needs a break. Only a drunken mistake leads to a night of passion with unintended consequences.
When it turns out they can’t walk away, they’ll have to make a choice: remain just friends or start something new and possibly risk everything.
Including themselves.





When it comes to family dynamics Ms. Ryan is one of the best in creating close knit clans.  With her latest series she continues that tradition with the Montgomery family and the up and down emotional rollercoaster ride they take readers on.

Brenna Garrett was once closer than close with Beckett Montgomery...or so she thought, until she realized the secrets he was keeping and the need to finally find out who she is on her own.  A road trip to a family reunion sounds like the perfect time to rethink things, but her plans go awry when a face familiar to her joins her on the road.  Benjamin Montgomery, Beckett's twin, has his own answers he's seeking and decides that hanging with Brenna will help him make some important decisions in this emotional tale of starting over.  When a drunken night of togetherness leads to an unexpected pregnancy, these two will have to navigate newfound feelings that pulled at my heartstrings with each turn of the page.  From the moment these two started interacting it was clear that they had strong chemistry, chemistry that led to their unexpected night.

Benjamin's a stand up guy, a guy with a positive connection to his ex and an attraction to Brenna that he's never acknowledged before.  Deep down he knows the answers he seeks but spending time with Brenna is something he wants.  For Brenna, she's tired of people thinking she's broken up over Beckett falling for someone else, when in fact she's more upset over the secrets he kept from her and it's those feelings that weigh on her when she looks at Benjamin.  Throughout their trip together these two are very open and honest with their concerns and doubts, bringing them closer together until their unexpected night together.  From that moment on things changed irrevocably and though Benjamin is all-in, Brenna's a bit more blind to what's right in front of her which frustrated me a bit.  Despite a bit of frustration with Brenna, their journey was a sweet and heartwarming one, one full of emotions and featuring two appealing characters who I was rooting for every step of the way.  Interspersed with the decision-making of this appealing pair are glimpses of other family members and the unexpected events happening to them too.  Paige especially has me intrigued with what happened to her at the end of the story and I look forward to her story being told next in this well-written addition to the Montgomery clan series!

My rating for this is a B+
