This book comes with a sweet surprise for me. I was not expecting a sweet, simple story. But i end up liking it very much. All credit to Liam. He is such a.... quirky hero. With a very normal side dish of vulnerability. And thats makes him a human being.

I love how the characters interaction. Sweet banters. Sweet realistic dates. A a pup in the middle of it. When i read the blurp, i though the story will be angst and full of drama. But it is the opposite actually.

The love is slowly build from t

I love getting lost in the world of the Montgomery's and now we have a whole new bunch of them to fall in love with in this new spin-off series located in Boulder Colorado. Wrapped in Ink is Liam Montgomery's story and it is emotionally charged so be prepared!

Arden Brady has been dealing with an illness that isn't visible to the naked eye and it has made her a prisoner in her own life. Autoimmune diseases aren't easy to deal with so she has lost all of her friends and her last boyfriend, now it

This is the first time I have read anything by this author and while I really wanted to love this story I found I couldn’t stay in it.
The fact that Arden has Lupus was a great premise that I hadn’t encountered before. While I did learn a lot about what someone with Lupus may go through I found that this was not enough to keep me invested. Some of the conversations that happened between various characters just didn’t seem believable to me and drove me a little crazy, to be honest. Maybe it was t

Wrapped in Ink is the first book to the Montgomery Ink Boulder series and this one starts us off with a highly emotional and heartwarming story. Liam and Arden cross paths and with just one smile this might just be more than a fleeting moment. As a shock discovery turns Liam’s life upside down Arden might be a welcome distraction. Arden has spent her life in and out of hospital and also watching people walk out of her life as it all becomes too much for them. Can Liam finally be the man who can ...more

I was Wrapped up in all the “feels” in this book...

Taken with these characters from the very beginning. The drama for this Montgomery family may be different than for the Denver family, but it’s just as heart wrenching. Liam is very enigmatic, protective, and in his own way happy go lucky. Arden is so brave. She’s had to put up with feeling badly and being in hospitals for so long she could be bitter or could totally shutdown. Instead she tries to make the most of every day. They both need a dis

Wrapped in Ink is a fantastic addition to the Montgomery Ink saga. I love that the author looks outside the box and believes that everyone should have their happily ever after. I LOVED Arden and her fantastic outlook on life and her resilience. I’d already liked Liam from his bits in other stories but getting to watch him fall was terrific. This story will tug your heartstrings and make you smile.

This is a case of “it’s me and not the book”. I had a hard time getting into the book. I was able to stick with it but I struggled. The hero was in his mid 30s but he came across as younger. He was in his head alot of the time. I also felt like some of the words and conversations from the brothers sounded more like women having conversations. I found myself squinting a lot in confusion about the characters. I didn’t really get them.

It was not a bad story, it just didn’t click with me.

This was an okay book I guess. I just didn't feel the connection between the mcs and there was way too much drama and too many cliches. The book doesn't seem to flow right. A couple of times I thought a couple of chapters were missing but I guess that's this authors style.

Not my kind of books so won't be reading anymore from her.

Liam Montgomery is at one of his friend’s wedding when he is struck in a freak accident by one of the scaffolding. In the emergency room he shares a room with an attractive woman. He gets her phone number with every intention of calling her but he receives news that shakes his entire life.

Arden Brady isn’t shock that Liam didn’t call her. She spends most of her time alone at home working on her research company or with her four big brooding brothers. She has her “online” friends who support her

Well I finished it, that should count for something. The girl had Lupus, you know this because that's all she talks about. Her whole identity is her disease. I appreciate the representation of an autoimmune person in romance, but did it have to be in every conversation on every page? If it wasn't lupus it was over protective brothers trope. That's the book. Oh and some weird family cult thing where everyone wears a family tattoo. Also, WTF with his sister just showing up? That'

Liam is a cousin of all the other Montgomery's. He used to model, now he is a successful writer. Arden Brady has her own company, she works for famous authors as basically a fact checker. She helps them keep what they wrote in previous books in order. She finds out Liam uses a pen name when writing, that scene was awesome. She struggles with Lupus. She meets Liam in the hospital after she has an episode, and He gets knocked down by scaffolding protecting his sister Bristol at a wedding. He actua ...more

Wrapped in Ink was an enjoyable read that was a great addition to the Montgomery Ink series. It was great to read about the Montgomery family once again and the way that this story really focused on family. I really enjoyed the family dynamics in this story and the sibling relationships that both main characters had throughout the story.

I really loved Arden and the way that she was positive about things despite what she's been through in her life.

I really enjoyed learning about Liam and love th

Oh holy sweet cotton candy goodness! I fluffing love this book! I’m a sweet junkie, but I like my sweetness to have some real meat, uh cake?, to it. That’s exactly what you get from Wrapped in Ink. While Liam and Arden have a love that is insanely sweet they also have depth to them. It’s not all fluffy clouds and rainbows, but it is a whole lot of love.
The romance? Next level swoon. The family? Bringing that heartwarming, great big hug feeling. I could not get enough! There’s humor, there’s a b
