Publisher Description

NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan begins her binge-worthy Montgomery Ink series with a bachelor ready to finally settle down and the one woman he shouldn’t have.

One look at the woman who comes in for new ink and Austin Montgomery knows she’s the one for him. The problem: she can’t stand him. Now he’ll have to be his most charming and brooding if he has any chance of changing her mind…and claiming her heart.

Sierra Elder has reasons for keeping away and secrets close to her heart. An accident took her first love and scarred more than her soul in the process. Now the inked man with a wicked grin is starting to melt the ice she’s built to keep her safe, but the danger isn’t only from what she feels.

Some secrets were never meant to be kept and when mistakes from both of their pasts come knocking, they’ll have to trust each other, even if it could hurt them both in the process.

Overall the book is good but there are a few continuity errors that simple proof reading could have helped

Sorry, but this book was just not my thing and so I only got half way. I didn't realise from the blurb that it was bdsm but in fact that wasn't the issue as it was pretty light in the bit that I did read.
The thing that really did it for me was that you would read a couple of chapters about the MCs and start to connect with them when you'd find that the next chapter was about completely different people/situations. I appreciate that it is part of a series and other characters will have their own book but they don't need to be ALL introduced in the first book. This book would have been better imo if some of those sections had been left out.
Before I decided to give up on this book I did read reviews from other people to see if I was alone in these opinions and to see if it was going to get better. Alas, others agreed and if anything it sounded like it was going to get worse not better with even more subplots being introduced!
