Priceless Ink is book 5 in The Cortell Brothers series. It is recommended they are read in order.

I couldn't do it. All I saw when I looked at Graham was my life going down the drain.
He didn't love me, which he made perfectly clear last night.
The corset was too tight and I was on the verge of a panic attack.
So, I ran...right into a sexy biker. He tore my dress and drov

“What’s wrong with it?”
“Not sure. I need to have my brother tow it to his shop.”
“You can’t fix it?” she screeched.
I slowly looked up at the now hysterical woman in front of me. “I’m not a mechanic.”
She pressed her hands to her head and started pacing in her four inch heels along the side of the road, practically hyperventilating. “I can’t believe this. I’m such an idiot! What was I thinking? I should have just married the bastard. At least then I

My rating for this book is 4 star. I hate a little bit sofia character because of how spoiled se is but i feel bad because how her parents treat her. no one deserve to be treat like this. Now its time for Joe to be the one who are being gossip from the whole town. I hate how andrew treat Sofia like that. I understand he think that sofia will go back to graham but he at least need to support joe about this. I wonder what if the role for virgin is joe instead of sofia.

Opposites attract is the perfect way to simply describe Joe and Sophia’s relationship.

We’ve seen a lot of Joe in the previous books and he’s usually bringing with him the seamless humour that Giulia blends into her romance books. It’s been nice finally seeing things from his perspective and getting to know the man behind the actions which typically involve his brother’s lives being on the town’s Facebook page. It takes a lot of courage to lay bare some of the things Joe revealed about himself a

Priceless Ink is book 5 of the Cortell Brothers Series. The focus is on Joe Cortell and Sofia. This book could be read as a standalone but I recommend starting at the beginning of the series to have a better understanding of the other characters and what is going on at this point in time with their family and small town.

Joe is definitely the most emotional Cortell brother. He's sensitive, protective, caring, but he can also be

How to pick the right place to start reading a new author?

Just pick a book, begin and to heck with the consequences! Priceless Ink was a great choice on where to begin with a new author. Giulia Lagomarsino was a new author to me but now I am destined to step backwards and gobble all I have missed. Giulia has an amazing writing skill that makes the scenes leap off the pages. Add to that relatable characters with heart and spirit and I was swept into the dynamic world of the Cortell Brothers.

To say these two are from different worlds is putting it mildly.

Joe Cortell, the baby of the Cortell brothers, always ready with a joke, a smile or just to cause trouble, he’s the baby brother and has the job down to a T. Joe is always ready to help out his brothers, even if they don’t want his kind of help. He supports them all the time and when he needs their support, they let him down.

Sofia Lancaster comes from a very prominent Chicago family. However, even with the riches that her family h

Let me start off this review by saying I have not read the books in this series so Priceless Ink was my first exposure to Guilia Lagnomarsino's books or the Cortell family. That being said I don't feel like I was confused by the story or characters at all.

Joe and Sofia come from completely different worlds. Joe is a working-class biker with a close-knit family who lives in a small community and would do anything for his friends. Sof

I have been waiting for Joe's story and Giulia Lagomarsino delivered! Joe Cortell, resident gossip king who seemingly, innocently posts the private events in his siblings' lives. OOPS. He's misunderstood, literally, for his millenial speak that only Andrew can understand, but also because of his membership in a biker club and his profession as a tattoo artist. He didn't expect to give the runaway bride a ride, but he wishes he didn't when she opens her mouth.

What happens when a spoil brat of a socialite runs out of her wedding and ends up on the back of a sexy biker’s bike – A Cortell family drama that’s what.

Sofia has been raised to do exactly what is expected of her by her rich parents, she eats what she is told, talks when she should, dresses impeccably and acts the way a ‘good lady’ should. She was expected to marry a man her father decided she should. When she discovers something about her fiancé the night before her wedding, she decides to tak

Sofia comes from a very powerful family who has a lot of money, and they've kept her basically a prisoner who knows how to do nothing for herself. And if she even wanted to try, she would be shut down in very mean ways, even at 24 years old since her parents basically own her. She's told how to walk, talk, or not talk, smile, clothes to wear, and no choice in who she's supposed to marry. It all comes to a head when she catches the man she's supposed to marry (not want to marry) cheating on her, ...more

Priceless Ink is book 5 in The Cortell Brothers from Giulia Lagomarsino and it's Joe's story. I was so excited for Joe's story.

When I read the blurb for Joe and Sophia's story I couldn't wait to read it. Joe's in a MC and Sophia is a runaway bride, so many things could happen there. Sophia is running away from a life she didn't want. She's basically being forced to marry a man she doesn't want to. Joe just happens to be at the right place at the right time.

Oh, these Cortell brothers. Joe Cortell has been keeping us laughing ever since Eric's book with his millennial speak ("spill the tea," "you salty bro?" "she's quiche AF") and his sometimes not so wise posts on the town Facebook page. He's been a charming, loveable, and frequently wise little brother. He perplexes his siblings by being part of a motorcycle club and owning a tattoo parlor--but let's be real, he's 24, he's doing pretty good. The older Cortell's just have a tough time taking him se ...more

I really enjoyed this book which is the 5th book in the Cortell Brothers series. Introduced in the Reed Security series, the Cortell Brothers series tells the stories of the (obviously) Cortell Brothers. Joe is the joker of the family. Laid back, easy going, always cheerful. Sophia seems to be the Princess from the Golden Tower, but all is not as it seems. Free for the first time in her life to experience how people on the other side of the kingdom live, Sophia gets a huge helping of life as the ...more

We've gotten to know bits and pieces of Joe's personality from his brothers through all the previous storylines but this time we get to know his thoughts and his point of view on things.

Sophia was forced into a marriage she didn’t want, her father reminding her it would help his business contacts, then at the last minute realises she can’t go through with it and runs, straight into Joe.
Something about the runaway bride has Joe helping her, but the more he learns about Sophia the more he realises the life she led and didn’t have any choices.

Princess in distress. That's what she looked like and Joe couldn't help rescuing her. Her being the beauty in a huge wedding dress running across the street begging him to help her. What's a guy to do? If he'd know what a stuck-up princess he'd gotten he may have thought about it.

So what was she supposed to do now? No money. No clothes. No work experience. She'd been raised to be a trophy-wife. But her husband-to-be was worse than even she thought. Her parents wouldn't help. Who wo

Priceless Ink is the fifth book in The Cortell Brothers series, but it was fine reading it as a stand-alone. This was a new-to-me author and I was excited to have the chance to read it. It was well-written and fast-paced. The characters and the storyline were developed. My attention was caught in the beginning and in fact, I stayed up late to finish it because I could not put the book down. It was down-right hilarious, entertaining, emotional, and full of snark between the characters. I laughed ...more

Who knew that Joe's story would be my all time favorite out of the Cortell Brothers? Especially since he annoyed me so much with the Millennial talk at the beginning.

I loved how Joe saved the runaway bride and how he gave Sofia the tough love. He is such a kind and nice person, but he has his work cut out with her at the beginning! I wish I saw more time with his motorcycle club, since tha

Book 5 in The Cortell Brothers series. Joe is a Owner of a tattoo shop and a MC member. Sofia is a rich spoiled brat that is being forced to marry into another rich family. It’s more of a business deal than a real marriage. On her wedding day she decides she can’t marry this cheating jerk and literally runs out of church. Joe happens to be outside on his motorcycle and she hitches a ride with him. Because Joe is a way nicer guy than he needs to be, he agrees to help her. I honestly don’t think I ...more

Priceless Ink just gave Uptown Girl a makeover.

Each book that Giulia writes definitely gets better and better. And the story lines are just on another level.

Going in to this, I knew that a) this book was going to be kickass, b) that it had the type of female lead that is strong, courageous and just awesome and c) that there are definitely going to be some Facebook posts for the town page. What I didn't expect was for it to hit me so hard emotionally, which is absolutely great.

This is an excellent sequel to the series that would have deserved 6 stars if it were possible because all the elements that make the series addictive are still there: the spikes and the conflicts between the Cortell brothers, their somewhat crazy companions, but who are all endearing, the hot scenes.

I'm a stay at home mom with a love for romance novels. There's nothing better than reading about a hot, alpha male that makes my heart swoon. I spend most days hanging out with my kids or writing about my next book boyfriend. I love crocheting, sewing, reading, and being outdoors, but in the end, there is nothing better than getting lost in a good book!
