Ink Exposed (Montgomery Ink #6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

InkExposed300 (1)


The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.
Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes. Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance. Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Alex Montgomery has struggled with his addiction to alcohol, but now he is a sober man trying to get his life back and fix his relationship with his family. After all he almost ruined a wedding before he finally got help. Tabby is becoming an addiction for him and in the begging he is trying to avoid her because he doesn't realize that she is the best kind of addiction he will ever have. I was moved by Alex's speech to his family and I felt so my emotions when he told Tabby how he started drinking. If I were at his place I might have also turned to the bottle or at least become very bitter and hateful. His addiction and his life after he became sober were handled in a way that showed (in some ways) how the life of a former addict is. At least Alex had a loving family to support him. Alex sees himself as the bad guy, but I don't think that's the case and Tabby is at his side helping him realize that. What I loved the most about Tabby's character is her organisation skills. She likes to label everything and I could relate to that. I liked her brothers and I think the author might plan a new series about them. What I didn't like in this book was the Jillian-Storm- Everly thing. You see the next book is Everly and Storm's sotry, but Storm has a friends with benefits thing with Jillian in this book and I liked her, but disliked the whole thing. I didn't really need to see them going to Everly's place after they had spend a night together. This is so not my thing and it tainted the whole experience.
