I loved this story. John and Cate must remove the wall around their hearts in order to let love in. Both feel, for Cate her profession and for John reasons unknown; they do not deserve love. When emotions become high and jealousy becomes a huge factor; a decision must be made. Thankfully, at the advise of one of Cate’s clients, a decision was made. I loved, what I want to call the partial ending. Please be a book four to let us know John’s reasoning and how the true happy ever after “Pretty Woman” ending could be.
Review: The other books in the box set were alright. Some took me over the edge, but the others didn’t get me at all. I guess I am just prone to paranormal romance novels. So if you are into BDSM then I guess this box set is for you.
From the streets of New Orleans and the heat of Midnight Ink, comes the happy ever after for a character whose story begged to be told.
Readers begged for Sassy…now here she is…scars and all.
When we first started writing Midnight Ink, we’d decided to write a story with 8 books written by 8 authors set in the same tattoo shop in New Orleans. We decided that we all should have one character who showed up in each book. She wouldn’t be too prominent, but she would be there.
Okay, so Sassy could never stand in the sidelines. Oops? We hadn’t planned on writing her sotry, but then we started to mix our characters even more. Shep, my hero from Ink Inspired ended up in 4 other novellas. So when readers got to the last book and realized Sassy hadn’t gotten her happy ending, they begged for her story. I loved Sassy. I even came up with her at first–hence why I was the one who wrote Ink Reunited. I knew some of her back story, though I didn’t tell the others so we wouldn’t put too much into our stories.
We hadn’t expected the response to Midnight Ink and Sassy like we got. OMG you readers are freaking amazing. SO. AMAZING. So this one is for you. Enjoy Sassy, Rafe, and Ian. Yes, she gets two men. Like one would be enough to handle her? Ha!
This book is set in Midnight Ink and you will see some familiar faces. But not too many…this is Sassy’s story after all. It’s also another prequel to my Montgomery Ink series. So yes, you get to see Austin one more time before his book in October. 🙂 Happy Reading!

From the streets of New Orleans and the heat of Midnight Ink, comes the happy ever after for a character whose story was begged to be told.
Sassy Bordeaux is the Midnight Ink receptionist, honorary godmother, best friend to many, and matchmaker expert. In the past two months, she’s watched eight couples fall in love, make mistakes, and find their happy endings. Though she might have had hand in each of those, she’s yet to find the peace she’s desired. When the men from her past come into Midnight Ink, she’s forced to face what she left behind and what could happen if she lets go of her pain and finds a future she deserves.
Rafe Chavez and Ian Steele remember their time with Sassy like it was yesterday, yet have worked hard to move on. Or at least try to. Now they’re both back in New Orleans for the woman they loved and for the connection they shared with each other. It will take more than the usual groveling, pleading and begging for these three to overcome their history, but once they take that step, the streets of New Orleans will never be the same.
One tattoo shop in one infamous city sets the stage for 8 stories about resolutions, kink, love and ink. Get ready to let the good times roll!

Blank Canvas (Big Easy #1) by Mari Carr
Disillusioned by divorce, Jennifer’s about to discover her wild side, starting with a tattoo from Caliph. And continuing with submission, spankings, wax play…all under the skilled hands of her wickedly sexy tattoo master.
OMG, thanks for referring me to this book Carrie Ann Ryan! I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, LOVED EVERY FREAKING MINUTE OF THIS BOOK! So sorry about screaming, but DAMN; Carrie Ann Ryan, you should have told me to keep ice water next to me at all times. This book was awesome!
When I read the first book (Report For Booty) I thought, wow this is a really cute story. The story took on an unhappy tone at first. I was like so upset that the soldier decided, on his own, to leave the woman that he loved “just in case”. I am a romantic and I believe in fighting for what you want. I felt he took the easy road out. As the story continued I gained a true respect for his reasons, but still… IJS.
“To The Bone ” had me falling in love with my husband all over again. LOL If you don’t know, I am married to a master musician, writer, producer and most of all, father of my three beautiful gifts from God. Of all of the story’s, this one really touched my spirit. Talking about love at first sight and being there for someone, Christie Ryder is that and more. And with Etta Santos falling in love with her teenage crush; HEAVEN!
Every book was HOT, HOT, HOT! They really flowed from one story to the next perfectly. The authors did an amazing job with this collaboration. Carrie Ann Ryan did not let me down with Ink Inspired (Montgomery Ink 0.5). I am looking forward to the series as I am a huge fan of hers. Her books have gotten me through some tough times when I have been bed ridden and not feeling 100%. Thanks again to all of the authors that participated in this project. I have added some authors to my list of must reads and follows. LOL
