The Montgomery Ink saga continues with a new series set in Boulder, where a family secret might just change everything.

One mistake at a friend’s wedding rocks Liam Montgomery’s entire world, and everything he thought was true turns out to be a lie. But when an accident lands him in the ER, Liam meets someone that might just be the distraction he needs.

Arden Brady has spent her life in and out of hospitals. But according to the world, she doesn’t look sick. She’s lost jobs and friends because they don’t see beneath the surface, but she’s learned to rely on her family and herself to keep going. And then she meets Liam. 

With two sets of overprotective siblings and a puppy that can't help but get into everything, Liam and Arden might just fall harder than either one ever expected.

    I felt like I went through Arden’s struggles with her. Very good book.
  • Simply amazing

    By Moonlitvixen
    How, how on earth is this the first Montgomery Ink book I have read? What is wrong with me? I adored Liam and Arden. Liam.was all hot and sexy and a little growly, and Arden was inspiring. I can't wait to see what happens next, and go back and read all the previous books!

    I have been in love with the Montgomerys from Delicate Ink years ago and with every new book that comes out for each of the cousins I feel a little bit more a part of the family. The events in Liam's book were a complete shock. I usually feel like I saw it coming when big things happen, but this through me for a loop. One of my favorite things about Carrie Ann Ryan's books are the real life issues that are part of the books and stories. They aren't an after part or a fluff mention. They are intertwined with the story from beginning to end. Both Liam & Arden deal with issues throughout the book that make them the solid couple they are. Love, Love, Love, I can not wait to read Liam's siblings book with the rest of Montgomery Ink: Boulder, and Arden's brothers books in the Promise me series.
  • Liam & Arden

    By girlygirlmegs
    Liam Montgomery is big brother to the the boulder Montgomery’s. He learns an unfortunate family secret that he is the main source of topic of. Arden Brady is the baby to 4 older brothers & unfortunately suffers from Lupus. She has a super bad flare up and ends up in the hospital where she meets Liam, who saved his baby sister from an unfortunate accident. Both Liam and Arden hit it pretty well. They have another chance encounter and Liam asks Arden out. Turns out, it’s a small world. Good story with the most real life aspects from Carrie Ann we’ve had in a few books. Very relatable. 4.5/5

    Absolutely love this book! Like always Carrie and Ryan pulls on every heartstring you have. Liam and Arden story all starts with a little accident in wedding and trip to the ER. The story is a great example of love and family...
  • Heartwarming Story

    By arhodes202
    This is the first book in the Boulder Series and it was as amazing as all her other books. This is the heartwarming story of Liam and Arden. It reels you in and holds onto your heart. You get all the feels. As always Carrie Ann goes outside the box with this story line, and doesn't stray away from the hard issues. She shows us how people with certain diseases suffer in silence, yet can still live a happy, full life. I also adore how these characters always have strong family ties and value all the people in their lives. This is an absolute must read. I loved this book and can't wait for Ethan's book.
  • Lovin’ more Montgomery’s!!!

    By Rinsky13
    We have a new set of Montgomery’s, and how can you not love that! So here we meet Liam Montgomery, who by all accounts is quite yummy. After an unfortunate accident, he/we get to meet Arden, who had her own kind of unfortunate accident. An unlikely place to meet and flirt, but this chance encounter eventually leads to more. A friendship that turns into caring, and though both seem to go in trying to hold back, they truly can’t help where their feelings take them. Both have issues they are dealing with, and things you have to read to find out about. Also a bunch of siblings that meddle whenever they want. I did some giggling and I did some tearing up. But I definitely loved this! Look forward to the next one
  • More Montgomery’s!!!

    By Cyanpooh
    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book Can we say HELLO Liam Montgomery!!!! Ah Liam, the name brings to mind Liam Neeson, Liam Hemsworth, and now Liam Montgomery. I love Liams hee, hee, hee!! Now with Wrapped in Ink we are onto another branch of the Montgomery tree. I have to say whoever planned that tree must have been a angel because everyone of them, male and female, are as hot as they are talented. Liam is a former model turned writer and he’s the Boulder branch’s pretty boy because of it. Arden Brady has been through hell and sometimes she revisits that most awesome of places when she doesn’t want to, lets face it she never wants to. Liam and Arden meet in the most unlikely of places........ a hospital. What happens next is a story of a man trying to deal with a identity crisis and a woman who doesn’t know how to deal with a man who might not go away like has always happened to her in the past. Liam thinks that he can use Arden as a distraction but soon discovers he needs her as much as she needs him. Once again Ryan writes of a couple that could be your next door neighbors. While her characters are talented and beautiful, they are also very down to earth and go through things that we here in the real world deal with. With Liam it’s a secret from his parents past that he has to deal with and with Arden it’s her health. Along with the Boulder Montgomerys we meet Arden’s four over protective, over bearing brothers. They are all alpha males, but they make your heart stop every time they are in a scene. Like with every Montgomery Book you don’t have to have read the series but it helps if you like to get a whole world view of these characters and their family. I’m excited to see more of the Montgomery’s and to maybe get another glimpse of the Brady Brothers. Before I head out i forgot to mention one tiny little thing................... THE COVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy cover models Batman, this cover has become one of my favorite covers that Carrie Ann Ryan has. He captured Liam perfectly!!
  • Touches the Heart

    By Rhiltonnm
    This story was so emotional. Liam has his world turned upside down and the bright spot is Arden who is living with a debilitating disease. The more time they spend together the more attached they become. Arden is worried that Liam will leave and Liam feels helpless because Arden won't ask or take any help. They both have families that love and support them and are nosey as all get out. As they work to figure out who they are individually they also figure out who they are together. Loved this story even with all the feels.
