This was my first book from this writer and it will be the last as I didn't like her writing. It felt really amateurish and extremely boring. It doesn't make you feel. I felt disconnected with both characters and found them hard to like. The story in itself is too boring and cliché but sometimes even cliché topics lead to a great book but this book was not one of them. Because of its dry writing, the emotions do not pass to the reader. The story in itself feels disjointe

Lovely romance.
When Erin finds her husband having an affair with another woman – a cheerleader, she is determined that she would be fine after moving away from him. That is when she sees Devin Carr. Their romance was caring and emotional and each one opens up to the other. The pace of the story moves steadily and though it was rushed in some places, still enjoyed the story. Enjoyable read.

This story starts off with Erin walking in finding her husband having sex with the former head cheerleader at their high school reunion (not a spoiler since the blurb fills you in on that little fact) which was a true eye opener for her because she didn't see it coming at all, no Erin wasn't completely happy but she never pictured her husband cheating on her. So let me ask you, What would you do in this situation? Well, I think most of you would do what she did, Erin left and went to a bar to ge ...more

This was a good read. Devin Carr liked his life and his family. When he meets Erin Taborn he knows what is missing. Erin thought she had a good life she is married to her high school sweetheart but when she catches him having sex with the former high school cheerleader at their high school reunion her world comes crashing down. I liked this book and both of these characters although I did think that this book was a little long at times. Erin is fun shy about starting a relationship after being h ...more

"I couldn't breathe, couldn't do anything except want to be with her. She was mine in this moment, and if I let myself think hard about it, she could be mine forever."

Super fun cast sets the stage for a whole new set of siblings that I can't wait to read more from!! Devin and Erin didn't seem meant to be until they crashed and fell, then all the skeletons kept pulling them apart. Super hot, smidge of angst to keep it interesting, and as always peeks of some of our previous faves that tied everyt

Even smart independent women have to fight feeling “less than”

Erin goes from her only boyfriend, lover, husband to a man that takes her breath away. It’s just a rebound, she will not get serious with another man, right. Devin has never had the urge to get serious with any woman, but Erin has him tied in knots and breathless.

It’s definitely not ideal that they connect on the night she catches her husband cheating. But she couldn’t have found a more caring even nurturing man to help her that nigh

This is the first book in the Less than series it’s Devin and Erin’s story. If you’ve read the Colorado Springs series you’ll be familiar with Dimitri who’s Devin’s brother and a couple other characters but you don’t have too this is a standalone that introduces us to the Carr family. Devin is a mailman who loves his job and Erin is a cake decorator and owns her own business and loves it.

It all began in a bar in a red sequined dress and tequila shots. What could possible happen! Erin has been hurt and wants to not get serious with Devin. It’s all about remaining friends with benefits. Devin and Erin are such relatable characters. I enjoyed knowing what was going on in their heads while reading this story. I was so enthralled and captivated by the story that I wanted to be the friend that hits them both upside their heads. Lol. It was nice to meet the whole Carr family. Can’t wai ...more

This one was sweet. I liked that when Erin's life fell apart Devin was there to help. Sure as an acquaintance, but quickly it was more. I knew that at some point Erin would get scared and push Devin away, yet still hated when it happened. I liked that Erin knew what she was doing even if she wasn't able to stop herself or figure out how to make things better in the aftermath. When finally both Devin and Erin had clear heads and were able to talk it made things so much better, as they both realiz ...more

I wanted to like this book, I really, really did but honestly, it just did not do it for me.

Erin finds her husband having sex with a cheerleader she graduated with at her high school reunion. Her husband and her have been together forever and it just about destroys her. Because of the betrayal she throws herself into her work and writes off all men and relationships. This whole scene and what follows set the tone of the book for me, which was very dry. It felt disjointed and I was not

Carrie Ann Ryan has done it again.... she has given us a new spin-off series that is just as wonderful and emotional and everything that you would expect from this author. There are sad times, happy times, and funny times with Devin and Erin and their families. While these two figure out what they want and if they can move forward together, you will experience all of the emotions from the laughs to the tears. I can't wait for the rest of the Carr family. ...more

This is book 1 in the Less Than series, and let me tell you-bring some tissues. This is a spin-off from the Montgomery Ink series as this is Dmitri's (from the Colorado Springs series) family. In this first one we get Devin Carr and Erin Taborn's story. Erin goes to her high school reunion with her high school sweetheart (who is also her husband) and finds him having sex with the head cheerleader later in the night. And her entire life crashes around her afterwards. And now she has to figure out ...more
