About LOVE RESTORED
In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…
Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.
Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

This was my first time reading a Carrie Ann Ryan novel and I had no idea what I was missing this whole time! Beards, tattoos and alpha men! These books are right up my alley. Graham Gallagher owns an up-and-coming restoration company with his brothers. With the anniversary of a tragedy looming, he’s even more of a grumpy asshole than normal and when their newest client meets them on site he has a knee-jerk reaction to her. Blake Brennen wanted to be anywhere but in dressed like she was at her childhood home. When Graham’s a jerk to her, she’s a bitch right back. She’s feisty and in your face. Then just hours later, fate would have them meeting again at her work place.
I loved everything about this book. Both Graham and Blake have been to hell and back. They’ve each trod a rough road and that road has influenced their actions. Graham acts like an ass because of his. Blake is secretive and closed off because of hers. The banter back and forth between the two, the push and pull between them just ramped up the sexual tension. It’s intense and hot. Add in the other Gallagher brothers and their obvious love for each other, I was completely sucked in, engaged and entertained. I didn’t put this book down until I had read it all. And then I started buying up Montgomery Ink books!
I can’t wait for more. Ms. Ryan has a new fan in me. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
