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 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!!!
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 ...more

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.

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

”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.

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

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

I had the pleasure of reading Sated in Ink before the release date and it was great! This is the story of Ethan, Liam’s brother who we have met in Wrapped in Ink, who takes a chance on a polyamorous relationship. I really love that this is a topic that can have books on it nowadays, we’ll see some things that people in such relationships struggle with but stories as these are the beginning to acceptance of something that a lot of people still seem to reject.
But next to that, is it also a good

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 ...more

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. Neither expected to meet Holland in a wedding dress drinking wine out of a paper bag. Or ...more

Y'all Stated in Ink will steal your heart and then make it even better by making it SO HOT! Ethan and Lincoln had both secretly been in love with each other for years but it never felt right until they met a runaway bride that somehow fit them both, but can the three of them find something everlasting?!

Ethan and Lincoln are both such amazing men, but have their own unique qualities, I can safely say that THEY are BOTH my new book boyfriends and I am totally a wee bit jealous of Holland. These

This was a great story right from the beginning. I really loved Ethan and Lincoln and their feelings for each other that they didn’t want to share with the other and then they came across Holland, who had her own issues, but there was an instant connection made between the three of them.

“Sated In Ink” is my first read by Carrie Ann Ryan and by way of introduction to her work, it most definitely leaves a lasting impression. As a huge fan of MM romances The blurb to this book caught my attention. In it we meet Ethan and Lincoln. Both are openly bisexual and have been best friends since childhood. They are however, in denial. Madly in love with each other but hiding it from one another for fear of ruining their friendship. Enter Holland, a beautifully broken women they “run” into ...more

Sated in Ink is the second book in the Montgomery Ink: Boulder series by Carrie Ann Ryan and it's a complete stand-alone. What you should know as a reader is that this book has a throuple and not a couple, so if this is not your thing, you might want to skip the book. Personally, I found the journey of our characters becoming a throuple well executed. I was not sure about how the story was going to unfold at first because Lincoln and Ethan were just friends and Holland had just run from her ...more

Sated in emotions
Carrie Ann Ryan continues her emotional and hot Montgomery Ink: Boulder Series with Sated in Ink. Ethan Montgomery’s life changed forever that ordinary day he and his best friend Lincoln McClard went for a run. Sitting on a park bench, in a wedding dress with a bottle in hand and eyes the showed to the deepest layers of her soul, Ethan and Lincoln both knew things would never be the same.

I am loving this spin off series from Carrie Ann Ryan, these Montgomery's <3<3

This one was my favourite from the series so far! It was seriously hot!! made me all hot and bothered.

Ethan has been in love with his best friend Lincoln for years and he has felt the same but its not until they meet Holland that they feel like that can act on it as she is their missing link.

Holland has just run out on her wedding after finding her groom in a compromising position with her sister. Shes

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

It takes a lot to be in a triad, a throuple, a threesome, or whatever you want to call it. But the story was amazingly told by Carrie Ann Ryan. Ethan and Lincoln have been best friends forever and though they have feelings for each, have not voiced them for fear of what the other might say.

In comes Holland, whom they befriend at a park, while wearing a wedding dress. She is what they have been missing and the key for the guys to open up to each other.

These characters are funny, they are humble,

Unbeknownst to Ethan, Lincoln silently feels the same way, secretly in love and too afraid to ruin the friendship. While jogging, they come across a woman sitting in the park, in a wedding dress, looking a little lost. Being the caring amazing men that they are, they stop to check on her, ...more
