The Montgomery Ink series continues with the so-called sensible sister and the one man she never should have fallen for.
For Thea Montgomery, baking isn’t only therapeutic, it’s also her dream job. She’s worked countless hours keeping her bakery afloat, and now that it’s where she wants it to be, she’s ready to expand and take the next step. When it comes to work and her family, she’s on top of her game. Her personal life, however, is a different story.
When Dimitri Carr isn’t teaching and hiding his ink under long sleeves to keep the bosses happy, he’s trying to be the best brother and friend he can be. After his divorce, he’d thought he would lose Thea from his life forever because she’s his ex-wife’s best friend. But now that he’s free, and the two of them realize they want to keep their friendship. Then he finally sees what he’s been missing all this time.
But there are more problems than the fact that Dimitri is Thea’s best friend’s ex. And when accidental touches and flirtations aren’t enough for either of them, and they’re finally ready to take the next step, they’ll find out exactly what that cost is for crossing that line. And will need to find the strength to face it.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.
I don’t know how many times I’ve said it, but I love this family!!!!!!
Thea Montgomery is the head baker and owner of Colorado Icing and loves it.
In her sister Addi’s book we learned that Thea’s best friend Molly and her husband Dimitri were divorcing.
Thea was having a hard time because she was friends with both before they even got married and was finding it hard to stay that way after the divorce.
Dimitri Carr a divorced tatted teacher and lets not forget he’s a HOTTIE!!! Oh and he loves dogs too!!! Lol.
After seeing each other after again after her date from hell Thea has thoughts about him that she’s never thought before.
In typical Montgomery fashion we have scenes that involve the Colorado Springs siblings. I absolutely love these, they show just how close this family is.
Thea and Dimitri are so good that I don’t know why he even married Molly!! These guys should have been together before now, but maybe they weren’t ready to see how much more than friends they could be.
As with a lot of Ryan’s books in the middle of couples falling in love there is also a lot going on in their lives else where.
Thea’s in the middle of trying to finalize things in the next step for her bakery, Dimitri has the normal troubles that go along with being a teacher, and there is the drama that may or may not be coming from Molly Dimitri’s ex.
Ryan never disappoints and always leaves you wanting the next story. The next Montgomery is going to be a doozy, but it will as always be well worth the wait.
