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.

I loved this story and I love all the siblings in both families as well as their friends. Liam and Arden are great characters who are both dealing with a lot in their lives. They are looking for a safe and secure place in port. Can't wait to hear the rest of their stories

This is the first book in the Montgomery Ink-Boulder series and we got to meet Liam in the last book in the Colorado Springs Montgomery's. When an accident lands Liam in the ER, he is just looking for a distraction in order to make the time pass and keep his mind off things. Arden has been in and out of the hospital for years. She may not always look sick, but the sickness is always there. Just waiting. And she has learned the hard way that the only people she can rely on are herself and her fam ...more

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

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

Liam and Arden packed an emotional punch. Both for very different reasons, but both for very valid reasons. Their hope and optimism was just as powerful, and made me love them even more. Where Arden knows who she is, and has long since accepted it, she didn’t think she would have more. Liam had everything figured out and was secure in his world, until his very core was shaken. A chance meeting, twice, and they found in the other what they didn’t even know they had been missing

I love the Montgomery’s and am excited for the Boulder series (and maybe Arden’s brothers for a spin off series??). Wrapped in Ink is Liam and Arden’s story. Writing a main character with a chronic and often debilitating disease could have gone wrong, but Carrie Ann Ryan does it in a realistic way that brings awareness about those with chronic diseases and that they too can have their HEA. I loved it and look forward to Ethan’s story.

Wrapped in Ink is the first book in Carrie Ann Ryan’s newest series Montgomery Ink: Boulder. This is Liam and Arden’s story and we meet both of their families with lots of siblings. Hoping that means we will have a lot of books with these characters. Loved this story which dealt with a serious medical issue that impacts a lot of people. This a definite must read.

Holy Moly! What a fantastic start to a new series. Liam and Ardens story was filled with laughter and fun, along with a few tears and strain. I loved it.
And the hints at the next book??? I really hope Ethan is going to end up with who i think he is lol. Cannot wait.

What a wonderful book. Liam and Arden make such a great couple. He is so supportive of her and lets her know he is not going anywhere. And Jaspar is so sweet. I love that he keeps getting into colors and how he knows what his mommy needs. The Montgomeries are so strong and support each other through thick and thin. Once Liam worked through a shocking find, he figures out his family is his rock. I'm waiting on the bonus epilogue but I really loved this book

Arc: Oh my god Carrie Ann Ryan has done such a amazing job with this one. The emotional journey and the turns with Liam and Arden was truly emotional. I love being able to read this one. Liam learns and secret and the journey he takes with Arden opens him up to see what is there. Absolutely a amazing read I’m still in turmoil of the good kind if I could be more than five stars.

Wonderful story! Love having more Montgomery’s

Liam’s and Arden’s story was a delight and very well written! Including handling of Arden’s autoimmune disease and Liam’s dealing with his secret!

Loved the story, can’t wait for more! And the Brady's boys will have their own series??!? Yes!!! Can't wait!!

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 sto ...more

Liam Montgomery whom we've met in JAGGED INK was an author. He had an accident while he and his family were at his friends' wedding, and things went from bad to worse faster than he could imagine. He ended up in the hospital and there he met the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen.

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

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

I love the Montgomery crew so much! The original MI is the first series I had started to read of Carrie Ann's and it's always had a special place with me, so I love that she's gone on to do stories for all of the cousins!!!

I loved Liam before we even truly knew him in Jagged Ink. He played such a special role for Roxie, and it was VERY swoony. Then when I found he was an author? DONE FOR! I think all of these things made him so, unbelievably perfect for Arden. He's such a giver, and because Arde

Who would have thought going to a friends wedding would change your life. Liam Montgomery discovered two things after a narrow miss and a trip to the hospital. One secrets hurt but only tear you apart if you let them and two, unexpected things happen when you look for them the least.
