Ethan, Lincoln, and Holland's story is one of best friends finding their way to one another with a little help from the perfect person to complete them.
I always enjoy a good friends to lovers romance, throw in the fact they the friends are both male and that bumps it up for me, and then add in a woman that get the two friends to admit their feelings towards one another and I am all over it. It's like I'm a little kid in a candy store and I have grabby hands because I can't get enough of it.

I want to give this book more than 5 stars!

There is so much emotion in this book. Fear, insecurity, jealousy, but most importantly love.

The love between best friends that's always been just a little more but neither knew exactly how to express that. The new love realized when you meet that special someone.

Ms. Ryan does an amazing job of navigating all of those feelings with her writing. She truly makes the reader feel a part of the story. And who wouldn't want to be a part of the amazing Montgo

Right from the start...Carrie Ann Ryan will pull on your heart strings when Holland goes through heartbreak and betrayal all on the day she has dreamed of. Sated in Ink is about courage. It is about having the strength being what you need to be to start living life to the fullest. That is where Lincoln and Ethan come into the picture.

Because there is always "What society deems appropriate" bit, these characters work through a lot of turmoil through their need for each other. But I loved every m

I loved the Montgomery Ink series. And I am loving that the author is giving a spin off on their relatives, yet the stories and characters are fresh. We still get that feel of deep family bonds, but the faces are new and their love lives are unique.

This one is Ethan's story. If you like friends to lovers with a run away bride thrown in---this one is for you. We have met Ethan and Lincoln previously. They are best friend who happen to have loved each other all their lives. They have not crossed
The Missing Link!!!

Holland Yeaton ran away from her wedding when she caught her sister going down on her fiancee. She had a feeling that wasn't the first time they did such thing and it sure as heck wasn't going to be the last time. She decided right there and then that she wouldn't allow herself to fall in love again.

Montgomery Ink: Boulder #2, It's been a while since I've read a menage, probably because it's been a while since Carrie Ann Ryan has written one. I am picky about any M/M or M/M/F I usually only stick to authors I know, because I already enjoy their writing style and I trust that I'll enjoy the book. Carrie Ann does not disappoint. Emotional, immersive, really freakin' hot! Top it all of with the wonderful Montgomery Family and you can't go wrong.

This is a story of 3 people (MMF) that enter into a triad relationship. And Carrie Ann Ryan is an author who does a great job of telling their story. Ethan, Lincoln, and Holland. Ethan & Lincoln have been friends for years. They have also been attracted to each other but never say anything or acted upon that as they were afraid it would ruin their friendship. Holland is what we might call a run away bride. She ran out of her wedding. Not because she wasn't ready but because she caught her sister ...more

What was supposed to be the happiest day of her life has become the most painful as she is betrayed by those she should have been able to trust. Needing to escape the situation she becomes the runaway bride and now finds herself drowning her sorrows on a bench when two men come to her rescue.

Ethan and Lincoln have been best friends since they were teenagers and over time their friendship has evolved into something deeper but rather than discussing them with each other they both keep their feelin

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”Something this perfect, this... everything, wasn’t meant for her. But she could soak it in, and she could hold them. At least, for the moment.”
Lincoln and Ethan are bestfriends. Lincoln has been on love with Ethan though, for as long as he can remember. When they meet Holland, a runaway bride sitting in a park in her wedding dress, drinking wine out of a paperbag, they have no idea their lives are about to change.✨

5 star Review Sated in Ink (Montgomery Ink: Boulder #2) by Carrie Ann Ryan
Carrie Ann Ryan is a relatively new author to me and why that is, I have no idea.

Sated In Ink is a story of love and friendship and is Lincoln, Ethan and Holland’s story. Narrated by Tor Thom who does a good job bringing the story to life. It is a story of misunderstandings, secrets, love and I was cheering for them to get the happily ever after all three of them deserve.

Running, it’s what we are trained to do from the very beginning. Whether running for health in gym classes throughout school, playing tag as a child, any number of sports. Toddlers try to run before they can walk. We are told to turn the other cheek when confronted, stepping back to re-group, or flat out avoidance, as humans, when faced with fight or flight, we instinctively take flight.

Wow, this was such an incredible read. I was totally captivated by this complex romance. One thing is for sure, you can expect to experience plenty of feels as Holland, Lincoln and Ethan's story unfolds. I loved each of these characters individually and together I thought they were perfection. These are all complicated characters, so you can't really expect their relationship to be any different. I thought that the author did an amazing job of balancing out the angst, anxiety and unspoken feelin ...more

The story was good but the narration was boring and dry.
This author sets the bar for smoking hot, sensual menage romance! There is so many feelings, and emotions packed into this book, I just could not put it down! This trio has an absolute connection that there is no getting past, and I just knew they'd be perfect together!

Ethan and Lincoln are best friends. With feelings for each other. That they don't acknowledge. And Holland is a girl that has been hurt by a relationship. She isn't sure she wants to live that life anymore. But she is down for so

Best friends Ethan and Lincoln silently fight their attraction for each other until they find a “runaway bride”. Like all true Montgomery’s, that are there to help. After a night of drunken Mario Kart, Holland becomes the catalyst they needed to ensue their relationship between themselves and her. Who doesn’t love a Montgomery story! There is the struggle of attraction, feelings, angst and the fight for the love you want.

I loved this book! Ethan and Lincoln have been friends forever and both want more yet don’t know how to let that be known. Holland just had her trust destroyed by people she should be able to turn to. They all meet in a very interesting fashion but it works for them and they are immediately connected. Through laughter, tears, trauma and heartache they find out what’s important and struggle to make that a priority. The characters are layered and their chemistry is palatable. This is so good!!!

This is book 2 in the Montgomery Ink: Boulder series and it can absolutely be read as a stand alone although I do recommend reading the 1st book because it introduces these characters in that book. In this one we get Ethan, Lincoln, and Holland's story. Ethan and Lincoln have been best friend's since they were kids although they both have feelings for each other that they don't think are reciprocated.

Taking chances

We are back in Boulder, Colorado with the Montgomery 's. Sated in Ink is a steamy ménage. Three people come together fighting through their insecurities to make this relationship work.

Ethan Montgomery is a computational chemist not a very exciting job but he loves it. He has known his best friend Lincoln almost all of his life. They have been through everything together, he is like an honorary Montgomery so the fact that Ethan has a crush on Lincoln not only complicates things but

I have been a long time fan of Carrie Ann Ryan and this book is just another fantastic addition to her work. I enjoyed this new addition to the Montgomery world with Ethan, Lincoln and Holland's story. If you are not into menage stories then this one is not for you but if you have no worries, then this is one hot story. I enjoyed watching Ethan and Lincoln's relationship bloom from longtime friends to lovers and then the addition of Holland as she learns to find her inner strength and get over h ...more

This was a fun one to read. From the start where Ethan and Lincoln run into Holland to how they went about starting a relationship between the 3 of them. What I really liked was from the start they all acknowledged it was something they wanted and how they would need to work hard at spending time in pairs along with the three of them and how talking about issues would be key. They did have a couple of stumbling steps at first, but they talked things out. Things really were going well until all t ...more

Oh how I missed the Montgomery clan!!! I didn't remember much about Ethan, but I think that made this story even better. I learned loving about him, Lincoln and Holland! One of my favorite parts of Carrie Ann's writing is how she brings us into her characters lives. She always makes so we know JUST enough about a character until it's their turn, and then we get to see them bloom to life.

When we are first introduced to Ethan and Lincoln, I really liked how Carrie Ann put us in their heads. At th
