To be honest I really enjoyed these stories! After reviewing my comments on each book that there was only 1 book I was personally unable to finish (due only to my own personal tastes not the author's writing). Then there were 4-5 books that I would really consider GREAT! I can't wait to continue with their own series or something else with their author!

I have to admit that going into this anthology knowing that the stories were all set in & around the one tattoo shop I wasn't quite sure how well the stories would all work together but believe me, it couldn't have been better!!!
The stories flowed seamlessly and all gelled together to give us a really fantastic hot, sexy and fun read... ;-)
I absolutely adored all of the characters ~ though Shep, Rosie, Finn & Caliph were real hits for me.... and Sassy really steals the show - can't wait for that little firecracker to get her own story!!
A couple of stories in particular grabbed me slightly more than the others but they were all fabulous reads!!!
As for the stories:
Jayne Rylon ~ Report For Booty
Burke & Chavon's story was really good and it made want to shout, slap someone, cheer and it did make me cry a little. Hot, sweet and sexy!!
Sidney Bristol ~ Picture Her Bound (Bayou Bound)
I loved this story... Action, a bit of intrigue and smoking hot chemistry between Odalia & the big alpha Bounty Hunter!
Robin L. Rotham ~ Not So Over Eli
This was one HOT story... knew how I wanted it to turn out and was thinking it might but Robin kept us kinda guessing.... Really enjoyed reading Bart, Rhonda & Elijah's tale.
PG Forte ~ Inked Memories
Sophie & Declan were fab to read!! Hot, they were kinda frustrating at times but this was definitely a fave!
RG Alexander ~ To The Bone (A novella in the Bone Daddy series)
Man oh man... Etta & Christie - I loved their story...
My heart broke for Etta but Christie was a determined bugger... I adored that about him! Little bit of a twist in the tale which I really liked!
Eden Bradley ~ Dangerously Inked (A novella in the Dangerous series)
OMG..... Finn & Rosie... Jeez, this pair are HOTHOTHOT.. Really enjoyed their story and the emotions it pulled on!!!
Carrie Ann Ryan ~ Ink Inspired (Montgomery Ink 0.5)
I'm a big fan of Carrie Ann and I've been looking forward to this prequel to her Montgomery Ink series and it was worth the wait!!!
In this story we meet Ice Princess Shea & hot, sexy Shep Montgomery - he's out to melt the walls she's built around herself and in the process they set the place alight!!!
Another of my faves from the anthology and can't wait to read more about the Montgomery's
Mari Carr ~ Blank Canvas (Big Easy, book one)
Disillusioned by divorce, Jennifer's life needs a change of direction and it seems that Caliph may just be the man for the job. Good gods, this guy.... he is just so...... This is a hot, erotic, fabulous story!!!
Midnight Ink introduced me to a couple of authors that I hadn't checked out before but they have definitely caught my attention now and this won't be the last time I read any of their work...
A solid 5* read for me that I have no hesitation in recommending!!!!!

Good Book! I received an ARC of Inked Inspired directly from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Ink Inspired by Carrie Ann Ryan is a steamy, face-paced novella with a solid story line that is both engaging and enlightening.
Shea Little is a cute accountant from a wealthy family. Her mother is an ogre and planned her life as a debutante from the moment she was born. Even though Shea is now in her early thirties, her mother still controls her life by dictating who she sees, what she wears and even how she decorates her own home. On top of everything, Shea's mother constantly puts her down and berates her. All Shea needs is a little push and her dream of being free from her mother's clutches can become a reality.
Shepard Montgomery, better known as Shep, is a hot, talented, tattoo artist and all around good guy. He has the ability to see the best in people, and tries to understand their wishes before permanently inking a potential customer. Now that he is in his late thirties, he feels bereft and needs some inspiration for his craft and future. When Shep bumps into Shea, he has a feeling she is just what he requires to make his life complete.
I really liked this short story. The characters are well-defined and easy to identify with. Ms. Ryan is a good writer and I always look forward to reading her books.

This anthology was AWESOME!!! I wound up getting each book as the authors were finishing them for review so I read them all out of order and it didn't matter a bit. The books all tied so well to each other. The character Sassy was so much fun, but don't get your hopes up because she isn't getting her own story. :( Trust me I already begged. lol Each book made me laugh, cry, get horny, or just sigh like a love-struck puppy. This is by far one of the best anthos I've read. All the books are new (not previously published) and some are even going to start or are part of series books for the authors. The heat levels range on this one but there are some super hot ones mixed in so be prepared with a cold glass of water or a useful person or tool nearby. I can't wait to read them all over again when I get the print book!! Drop everything and read Midnight Ink now!!

Another great collection of stories, that share a location and characters. Love Sassy, who tells it like she sees it, but is a friend to all throughout all the stories. I thought she would meet her Mr. Right by the last story, but maybe he's still out there. Loved all the characters and will definately be rereading this one!Was this review helpful?

Loved this collection. The is one of the only collections I have read that most of the characters show up in all most all the stories in one way or another. This book has something for everyone whether it be BDSM, ménage or just plain romance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

OVERALL, I loved this Midnight Ink!! I am astonished at how well these authors came together and created 8 different stories that all meshed so well together. I loved the ongoing characters throughout all the stores especially Sassy, I really wish she would have gotten her own love story. I love how the coffee in the Deep South is a running storyline in every novella.
Over all I give Midnight Ink 4 ½ out of 5, I loved the range of emotional stories and the different sensitive topics each author touched on.
Report For Booty
This was my first introduction to Jayne Rylon. I thought that Report for Booty was a really cute story. I love how it touches on our wounded warriors and the sacrifices they make for our country. Chavon and Burke are both memorable characters. It was a great start to this Anthro, we were introduced to Shep and Sassy which I hope we see MUCH MUCH more of.
Picture Her Bound
HOLY BONDAGE!!! I have never read BDSM before and this was a great intro into the world by an author. I really enjoyed the strength in both the characters and the little mystery we got while these two were “playing”. It made this introduction in Sidney’s new Bayou Bound series fast paced and captivating, I can’t wait to see where this series will go.
Robin L. Rotham
Not So Over Eli
I have never read anything by Robin before but I know her name is synonymous with erotica that leaves you hot!! This novella definitely lived up to that reputation. I wanted a little more “story” from this novella but it didn’t lack in the heat at all and I enjoyed the characters.
This is not my first encounter with PG but it is the first time I cried while reading a story. This story was not just about two people rekindling a romance; it’s about overcoming losing apart of you. As a woman I can’t imagine losing my breasts so to read Sophie’s struggle, my heart cried for her. Declan has his one battle within himself that pulls at the heart strings as well. Reading the previous stories in the Anthology I was expecting a hot and steamy read but I was happily surprised to have my heart squeezed in the middle of this Anthro. Thank you PG.
To The Bone
AHHHH!!! This was a very touching story. I really enjoyed watching Etta let go of her violent past and learn how to allow someone to really love her. I felt a little lost with all the characters in this novella but I realized after reading it that it was part of an already ongoing series hence some of my confusion BUT now that I have read it and I am officially intrigued about the world and stories of the other characters, I’m going to go back and read the first 2 books in the series. I really enjoyed this novella.
This was my first time reading Eden’s work, she definitely knows her Kink and BDSM. I was a little lost with some of the vocabulary only because I don’t read BDSM on a regular basis but Eden showed me that it’s a world of its own. I enjoyed reading about Rosie and finally seeing her get her love story after meeting her in the previous novellas of Midnight Ink. She is a strong character with a story to tell and I didn’t realize how much of a story till now. Finn was a strong character as well and I liked how the Dom showed his softer side with Rosie.
Carrie Ann Ryan
Ink Inspired, Montgomery Ink 0.5
I have been a longtime fan of Carrie Ann and I am so happy to be able to read the prequel to her brand new series. Carrie Ann is known for her Paranormal series so to see her in the contemporary romance world is actually really cool. I was hoping to see Shep get his love story and I was happy that I did. Also we got to meet Austin who I am sure will be a man that finds his love story in one of the Montgomery Ink books. Shea and Shep are so cute together and really offset each other in a brilliant way. I wanted to scream I hated Shea’s mother so much and that is how you know you are reading a good story.
Blank Canvas, Big Easy, book one
I really liked this story! I love how the title fits the story perfectly, Jennifer needs a new start and to find her colors, who is more perfect to help her do that than a tattoo artist that loves to turn woman into art with hot wax!! I am definitely adding Mari Carr and this new series to my TBR.
