Enjoy, my lovelies ❤
A Brand New Full Length Novel in the Bestselling Montgomery Ink Series where the quiet, inked Montgomery finds his match in the woman with a fiery passion and a past full of secrets.
There’s nothing worse for a writer than missing a deadline. For Griffin Montgomery, his failure to do what he loves comes at a blow. He didn’t understand how it was affecting his life until his well-meaning family intercedes. His sisters have hired him a new personal assistant and he’s outraged—that is, until he sees who it is.
Autumn Minor is light on her feet and a bare memory for most people she meets. She does her best to blend in everywhere she lives, even if it’s only for a short period of time. Making sure no one truly notices her is the only way she’s survived this long. Only when she meets Griffin and the rest of the Montgomerys, she’s afraid she won’t be able to let go when its time to run.
Though the two begin a tentative but explosive relationship, they know it can’t last forever. Neither of them are made for the long haul when it comes to love and romance. When the demons from Autumn’s past find her and put both their lives at risk, Griffin will stop at nothing to protect her. In the end, though, he’ll be the one who needs a second chance.
Disclaimer: This book is the 4th book in a series but can be read as a standalone, yet I assure you that you’ll want to read the rest of the books once you read this one 😀
“Love left. Love hurt. Love had left hisbrother in pain, in rehab. Love had left one sister broken after one man. Love had left him in agony after death.”
Griffin Montgomery comes from a very close knitted family, family that has seen it’s share of ups and downs and yet has come out stronger than ever. He loves being a part of that close knitted group even if he has a varied interests. He is a writer, loves writing and has written successful books. Yet he is now suffering from his worst nightmare – a Writer’s Block! Nothing he does helps him. He lives in a clutter, sends away his housekeepers screaming! He needs a keeper yet he never acknowledges that fact. (Un)Fortunately for him, his sisters accept that fact just fine 😛
Autumn Minor isn’t exactly Autumn. She is running and has been running ever since she was 18th. She doesn’t stay at a place for long, never makes any attachments, and keeps a go to bag for when she has to run and she ALWAYS runs. Until she meets the Montgomery’s – the family she had always wanted, but the family she never thought she would ever have, a family that has taken her in and loved her, accepted her, quirks and all. The only hitch? Griffin Montgomery – a man she always been attracted to since the very first time she saw him.
“You are my destiny. My path less taken. You are my future. My home. You are my life.”
Oh how this tugged at my heartstrings! I finished this book in one setting – which for me means that I was up the whole night to actually finish this book – and Ms. Ryan never disappointed me!
I loved Griffin – he is my favorite Montgomery of all and it is not just because he is a writer! It’s because on the surface, this guy seems to be all in, no issues no problems just cruising through life, only obstacle being his writer’s block. But there is so much more beneath the surface, you know? A past that has haunted him for so long, and yet he has been keeping up appearances for long, that he starts to believe that reality. And he stole my heart with his gruff attitude yet those moments when he was going all protective and caring, were what I kept reading for.
Autumn is a mystery, not by choice but by circumstances. She has had a brutal past, a family that never stood by her so she is in awe of the loyalty and affection that she sees as a part of the Montgomery family. And the only reason she stays behind, is because she has never seen that kind of loyalty and affection in her own life and that makes her more susceptible to yearning because she has been so starved off that affection it’s like the seeing sun for the first time and it literally brought tears to my eyes.
“My Fall. I’ve fallen for you, Autumn. I fell and I will fall each day until the day I die. Be with me. Take a chance. Stop running and be with me.”
This book was seamlessly written and it showed. The words from one page to another connected in a way that it felt as if you were visualizing the whole story in your head and those books are the best kind in my opinion. Ms. Carrie Ann Ryan has done her best work in this book, she gave it her everything and it finally shows! While I loved her first books in the series, I still felt disconnected, at least a part of me did, but that was never the case with this book and am oh so glad about it! I had forgotten how much I actually love those foul mouthed alpha badass heroes and while Griffin may not have been your typical badass hero, he still became my favourite. And Autumn seamlessly fit in with him as well!
But the culmination of autumn’s past was so fast and abrupt, that it felt like it was done in a blink of eye and that just didn’t sit well with me. A little drama never hurt anybody in fiction, am I right? 😀
:star ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ .5
This book is for those romance obsessed who absolutely love the Badass heroes and a the woman who tames him! It might sound run of the mill, but it definitely isn’t! Also, I can guarantee that you’ll want to know that the rest of badass alphas get their HEA as well. It is an itch that you can’t scratch 😛
So the best part about any blog tours are the giveaways – Am I right? 😛

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.
Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
