Book Description

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the long-awaited romance between the café owner next door and the tattoo artist who's loved her from afar.

Hailey Monroe knows the world isn't always fair, but she's picked herself up from the ashes once before and if she needs to, she'll do it again. It's been years since she first spotted the tattoo artist with a scowl that made her heart skip a beat, but now she's finally gained the courage to approach him. Only it won't be about what their future could bring, but how to finish healing the scars from her past.

Sloane Gordon lived through the worst kinds of hell yet the temptation next door sends him to another level. He's kept his distance because he knows what kind of man he is versus what kind of man Hailey needs. When she comes to him with a proposition that sends his mind whirling and his soul shattering, he'll do everything in his power to protect the woman he cares for and the secrets he's been forced to keep.

I received a copy for a honest review

Sloane is a tattoo artist at Montgomery Ink who has what I like to call the 4 B's: Big, bald, brooding, and the last B, Bearded!! Helloooo, total panty dropper!!!
Haley owns Taboo, the coffee shop next to Montgomery Ink that sells killer food made by her. She's super smart, super cute, and a unbeknownst to her chosen family, she's a survivor.
They have been quietly circling each other since they met, friends who want so much more but won't try. They each have their own fears about why they're not good enough for the other.
It takes another guy flirting with Hailey in front of Sloane to push these two together they way you can see they're meant to be.
From the start of the first date there is none of the normal awkwardness that comes with it, these two know each other's likes and dislikes. They clearly have been paying rent ugh attention, while tryouts no not to let the other see that they were.
Both characters are so real. From Sloane dealing with PTSD and Hailey having been through dealing with her own mortality at a young age, the scars they both carry both physically and mentally, they are your friend, a neighbor, family, they could be you!
Once the two get together and with the Montgomery clan surrounding them them with understanding and love, they talk about their fears and realize they belong together; two halves of a whole.
So glad these two finally get their HEA and this novella just wetted my appetite for more of the Montgomery family.

I have been waiting for this story it seems like forever! I just knew it would be one of those hard ones for Carrie Anne Ryan to write and even harder for us readers to read. I was so right. Make sure you have your box of Kleenex handy when you settle down to read Hailey and Sloane's story. Please note this is a novella so it is not a LONG story but it is packed with so much emotion that it feels like a full size novel vs a novella.

If you have not read any of the other Montgomery Ink books you will be fine jumping in a reading this book but I have to tell ya, you are missing out on a great series of books from an amazing author. Grab them and get to know this family by blood and friendships. Hailey owns the Taboo, a cafe and bakery that shares a wall and door with Montgomery Ink where Sloane works. Those two have been circling each other for a long time. It is time they landed or flew away. Both are strong souls who have survived so much.... And we finally get to find out what and IF they land together or apart.

Hidden Ink IS my favorite Carrie Ann Ryan book of all times. I invite you to find out why I would give it 10 stars if there was a way to do so. It touches on so many things that we see every day in our lives and this books is just so moving.
Sorry I can not say more without giving the story away. You simply need to read this one folks.

Hailey Monroe as a cafe/bakery owner, businesswoman who was situated right next to Montgomery Ink, she went through a terrible ordeal but she never let it keep her down. She rose from the ashes.

Working so close to the tattoo parlor, one of the artists caught her eyes and she would do anything to muster enough courage to talk to him...Sloane Gordon made her heart skip.

Sloane Gordon the sexy as sin tattoo artist found himself in the same situation as the beautiful café owner who has stolen his heart. He'd loved her from afar for years but now he wanted more so he took the decision to put everything on the line.

HIDDEN INK was amazing, Hailey was a true savior....When she bared herself to Sloane the emotions they both felt were raw, those two were finally making things right for each other.

Such a beautiful and well written story, Carrie Ann Ryan takes you on this wonderful ride where the Montgomerys and their inner circle make you feel like one of them. 5++++

P. S. Looking forward to Maya's story!

Hailey and Sloane have been dancing around each other for years. This is their story, and what a story it is.

Hailey has overcome more than I could ever imagine, and Sloane, well he has his secrets as well. He just isn't ready to be as open and honest as Hailey.

When Sloane finds he needs to step up to the plate and ask Hailey out, he knows he is too broken for her but can't help himself. He wants her and damned if she doesn't want him right back.

When Hailey reveals herself to him both inside and out he is overwhelmed and feels even less worthy of her love and attention. But he cannot deny he wants her with the same fire and intensity she has for him.

When a man from his past shows up at Montgomery Ink, Sloane knows he needs to open up and face his PTSD in order to have a future. Fear is a terrible thing when it causes you to walk away from everything you want the most.

As always there is the love and support of all the Montgomery Ink folks.

Oh my God, I cried, then cried some more.

As all of Carrie Ann Ryans books, you wish there was more. This was a story about Hailey and Sloane. Hailey is the owner of Taboo, which is next door to Montgomery Ink and you can enter through an open doorway between both without going outside.Both Hailey and Sloane have dark secrets from the past and they haven't shared their secrets with anyone. Hailey and Sloane like each other, but neither of them think they are good for the other because of their past. Hailey had breast cancer at a young age and has both of her breasts removed, but she did have surgery to put in implants. Sloane was in the military and has PTSD. After years of each of them liking the other and not doing anything about it, one of Sloane's clients started flirting with Hailey in front of Sloane and Sloane didn't like. They end up getting together and telling each other about there past and things move on from there. They end up falling in Love and have their happily ever after. One of these days I will need to go back and read all of the Montgomery Ink books again, starting from the first.
