Ashes to Ink (Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs #2.5) by Carrie Ann Ryan



From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a new story in her Montgomery Ink series…

Back in Denver, Abby lost everything she ever loved, except for her daughter, the one memory she has left of the man she loved and lost. Now, she’s moved next to the Montgomerys in Colorado Springs, leaving her past behind to start her new life.

One step at a time.

Ryan is the newest tattoo artist at Montgomery Ink Too and knows the others are curious about his secrets. But he’s not ready to tell them. Not yet. That is…until he meets Abby.

Abby and Ryan thought they had their own paths, ones that had nothing to do with one another. Then…they took a chance.

On each other.

One night at a time.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**


ASHES TO INK is available now!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

FUN FACT: Abby and Ryan aren’t actually Montgomery’s, but you wouldn’t know it from this gang! That’s what I love about this world. Carrie Ann has created a group of people that love fiercely and stand together thru anything. Family, friend, neighbor, acquaintance … doesn’t matter, they are all there for each other.

So, this story …. Fantastic and too short LOL I hate when a novella length story ends that I’m so sucked into that I forget time and place. I swear I read this story in minutes LOL If you’re a fan of this author then you’ve met these two before. And let me tell ya, these two deserved this HEA! They both have broken paths/history and I really loved that they connected as friends first. I don’t think their journey would have been successful any other way. Their story was sexy and heartwarming and put a huge smile on my heart!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wish this novella was a full length novel…after finishing it I feel I was robbed because Abby and Ryan were a nice couple to get to know and I could just read on and on about them. They both have issues that need to be dealt with and are trying really hard to do get past them but without falling apart or losing each other.

I found them and their relationship funny, realistic and down-to-earth. When you read this novella I’m sure you’ll get my point. 😉
