Publisher's Summary

The Montgomery Ink saga from NYT best-selling author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with a second-chance romance sure to tug at your heartstrings.

When men in uniform showed up on Eliza Wilder-Strong’s doorstep, she knew her life would be irrevocably altered. She not only lost her husband but the future she’d carefully planned. A year later, she’s looking to start over - beginning with a solo healing vacation. Only she never expects to see a familiar, tempting face along the way. 

Beckett Montgomery refuses to want his little sister’s best friend - especially because she’s a widow. Yet there’s no stopping the connection between them. As the temptation to give in intensifies between them, so do the reasons they shouldn’t stay together. 

Painful ghosts from both of their pasts stand in their way, and sometimes it’s the living that can haunt you when you’re not looking.

A Must have to add your library

I absolutely love Carrie Ann Ryan and her writing style how the characters grow and develop through out the story. Beckett Montgomery the eldest of the siblings and Eliza is Annabelle s best friend.
This story is beautiful and swoony very steamy of course a HEA
that bonus epilogue just makes me want the next one now...

Aaron and Emma narrating the story was a total bonus, they being the characters to life and I really enjoy listening to them both.

Beckett and his secrets…

I enjoyed this one as much as I enjoy every Montgomery book. They are full of family love and caring, some secrets to sort out and a bit of suspense and drama. The romance between Eliza and Beckett wasn’t instant. They have been friends for a while and she is his sister’s bestie. Also widowed, they treat her with too much care. She is fierce and independent and has some awful news from his dead husband’s side. But when they do get together is explosive and super sexy. I had a great time listening to this story and as always, the narrators hit the mark. Lovely voices!

Eliza and Beckett

Eliza and Beckett have known each other for some time as she's one of his sister's best friends, but Eliza was married so a friendship was all they shared. But then Eliza's husband was killed and now she's a widow.

Beckett has tried to deny the attraction he feels for Eliza, mainly because she’s a widow but there’s a strong connection between them one which could easily become more than friendship. As the temptation to give in intensifies between them, so do the reasons they shouldn’t be together.

Almost a year after her husband's death she learned he wasn't the man she believed him to be and she begins to doubt all she thought she had and wonders if the new life she's building is what she wants. Both Beckett and Eliza are desperately in need of space and independently go away to spend time at a luxury resort arranged by their families.

They meet at the resort and agree to eat together etc., but before they leave their feelings for each other deepen and they take the next step and spend the night together. But they are going home tomorrow and agree there can be no secrets but how do they tell their friends and family?

Once home the time comes for them to commit, but will they?

I loved the story, the characters worked so well together and are, as you would expect, very well developed and drawn.

The narration of the book by Emma Wilder and Aaron Shedlock do a wonderful job of bringing this book to life.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review

Loved Eliza and Beckett

Ever since hearing the clip, Broken in the Inked Persuasion audio, I was curious to see how Eliza's story would unfold. I was excited to see her healing and living life again. It was heartbreaking to learn that her marriage wasn't all that she thought it was, but she had her girlfriends and their families and her brothers to lean on, even when she found it difficult to ask for help. Beckett was such a sweetheart, and I loved how fiercely protective he was of Eliza.
Emma and Aaron are wonderful and did a great job bringing the main characters and various family members to life.

loved this story

This was such an emotional story. Eliza is a widow that is trying to find the right way for her to move on. She has obstacles thrown in her way that make her question everything. Then there is Beckett who also has something in his past he is trying to deal with. These 2 souls were meant to help each other start living their lives. Seeing the evolution of their relationship is so good. I was rooting for these 2 people. I loved the narrators for this book. They brought th echaracters to life and had me finding every opportunity to press play.

too many characters to keep track of.

So many friends and family characters in this story. Every time one was mentioned or was involved had to try to remember who they were.

Slow burn friends to lovers story

As soon as I read the blurb for Inked Obsession by Carrie Ann Ryan I was all in. So, when I had a chance to listen to the audio, I jumped at the chance. Narrated by Emma Wilder and Aaron Shedlock, they truly brought Beckett and Eliza’s journey to life. We first met these characters in Inked Persuasion, the first book in the Montgomery Ink: Fort Collins series, and though I do suggest you read it first, you do not have too. I did, however, love the first book and highly recommend it.

Here we have Beckett, Annabelle’s brother, and her best friend Eliza. Eliza is a widow learning her normal and struggling on how to move forward. She is lost and the last thing she expected was to get the news she did. Where does she go from here? Beckett is hiding secrets from everyone who cares about him. They are hurting, but neither knows how to move forward. Yet neither can deny how things are changing between them. Can they let it happen? Their lives are too intermixed, and their friendship means too much to both of them. Can they find their happily ever after? I loved listening to Inked Obsession by Carrie Ann Rya. It was a slow burn friends to lovers romance that was emotional and touching.

Happy listening!

Fantastic 2nd book

Book 2 of Montgomery Fort Collins series by Carrie Ann Ryan
Eliza is newer members of the clang but fits in really well with other characters.
Eliza was married military man that was always away a lot of the time this is how she became friends with the Montgomery lot especially the women.
Beckett is a Montgomery and works in family architects/construction company. He is always had a thing for Eliza but has kept his distance because she was married to Marshal but when he died things changed he tried to keep his distance but that was very difficult.
Eliza and Beckett have all secrets that eventually they tell each other and were able to work through their issues.
The chemistry is off the charts I love the way relationship develops The romantic scenes are incredibly lovely and sexy at the same time.
I did listen to this as an audiobook and as always Carrie Ann Ryan does a amazing job writing but also Emma Wilder is a fantastic narrator so you can do both male and female accents and does it with a fantastic quality this is the first time I’ve listened to Aaron Shedlock And even though I did enjoy him as a narrator I won’t lie at the at times I did feel that Joe Arden does have a better job which is mean to say but he does and I absolutely love him.
Looking forward to more in the series cannot be Carrie Ann Ryan for romance book in any genre really hope that Joe Arden is in the future ones because I do love him

Beckett & Eliza are sexy!

Great story by Carrie Ann Ryan. I loved getting to know Eliza & Beckett. The build up to their chemistry was awesome! Loved how it all came together. Can't wait to listen to more of the Montgomery Ink Fort Collins series. Amazing narration by Aaron Shedlock & Emma Wilder.

Brilliant

I knew reading the blurb that this book would be heartbreakingly beautiful. It went past every expectation and hope that I had for this book. The characters were so well developed and the back and forth with their emotions was so very believable. I loved this book and can’t wait for more
