Publisher Description

New York Times Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan returns with the next generation of Montgomerys and a second chance romance bound in memory and heat.

Leif Montgomery fell hard for Brooke Alder in Paris when they were young, and he thought their fling was just an early taste of what life had in store for him.

But life had other plans, and he didn’t find that kind of love—or see Brooke’s face—for years. 

Until he visits his cousin’s house and sees who’s moved in next door.

They’ve both changed: she’s a struggling single mom, he’s running from a past he’s trying to hide while opening up a new tattoo shop. Yet the moment he sees her again, he knows she’s the one for him.

And with one look, Brooke knows that she can’t fight the desire that pulled them together before, despite the skeletons in both their closets.

Bittersweet Promises by Carrie Ann Ryan is the first book in the Montgomery Ink Legacy series which is Leif and Brooke’s story.

Leif and Brook had a tryst in Paris, fell in love and made plans to meet back in Denver but neither showed up. Years later, Brooke and her son are in Denver and when she comes face-to-face with Leif, they both wonder if they can move past the past and move forward together.

Leif and Brooke did not lose any chemistry between when they were in Paris and her return to Denver. I fell in love with Luke (Brooke's son) as he was so adorable. They make a great family together.

I have not read a lot of the Montgomery books so I did not know a lot of the characters in the story but this was a good start to a new series with the next generation.

Audio... Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell did a great job as always with the narration.

4 Maple Leafs for Bittersweet Promises which contains… artist (tattoo), single mom, second chance, romantic suspense, dual first-person point of view.

Exceptional launch to the next generation!!

Leif blew my mind. I loved his dedication to not letting the spark and connection with Brooke go unchecked. Further, his fierce protectiveness without the need to take control was so hot. I can’t not comment on how sweet and fun Leif’s relationship with Luke was.

Brooke is the epitome of the ultimate self sufficient, brilliant super mom!! But I felt every minute of her self doubt on if she was enough - a good enough mother to Luke or a focused enough professional at work. Her son Luke is hilarious and added the perfect level of levity to the story. But Brooke with Leif is simple undeniable and meant to be. The building tension between Nick and Lake left me anxious for the next installment in the series. Carrie Ann Ryan is just amazing!! She is an absolute must buy!
