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.

Oh Alexander and Tabitha, you brave and wonderful people! Alex has had his world ripped apart by his addiction. He struggles every day to stay sober and not trade addictions. He is surrounded by family, yet still feels apart from them. As for what he feels for Tabitha, he shoves that aside every time it surfaces. He has been there, done that, and failed miserably. He doesn't trust himself to love again, no matter how good things feel with Tabitha Tabby has been attracted to Alexander forever, but he was married, then in rehab, then in recovery. She tries to hide it, but things eventually bubble to the surface for both of them. As much as she is in love with him, she knows he isn't ready for her to say so. She sees Alexander in ways nobody else does, and as safe as she feels with him, he feels it with her A good build up to the relationship, realistic emotions and reactions, and all that makes for an even sweeter HEA in the end!

I have been waiting for this story forever it seems. If you are a fan of the Montgomery series then you have seen how Tabitha, an honorary Montgomery and an assistant for the Montgomery construction business, has secretly pined for the broken brother Alex. Tabitha has her own secrets she has been hiding and when those secrets come to light things start to change. Alex is the youngest Montgomery sibling and has recently returned home after completing rehab for alcohol. Now sober and trying to find his way in the world and his place in the family again he is thrilled when his brothers offer him a project with the construction business. The job will have Alex and Tabitha working closely together. The job puts Alex and Tabitha working side by side and mutual feelings start to grow. Alex however can’t help but fight this attraction, feeling he is not “good enough” for Tabitha because of his demons. When Tabitha is nearly attacked, all bets are off and these two can no longer fight the attraction even though both fear they are not what the other needs. I loved the way Carrie Ann faced the alcoholism in this book. She did an excellent job of really showing all the struggles involved with this disease and didn’t skip over the ugly parts that accompany it. She gave Alex the strength to overcome his demons and the knowledge to be able to avoid his triggers. This book was very powerful and extremely well written. I received an eARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.

He is also, very organized and planner...I am very proud of his continued if he can just find that special woman, like Tabitha...hmm This is a great story in the Montgomery Ink series, you don't want to miss out, so get your copy today! Happy Reading:) Thank you Carry Ann for allowing me to be a part of your ARC team. It is, as always, a privilege to be able to express my reviews honestly.

I haven’t read all of the Montgomery Ink series but I couldn’t help but jump on Alex’s story as soon as I saw it. I was just too excited to see his story. This was a heartbreakingly real and raw story about the struggle to find your place again. It hit me right in the feels. I was captivated and entertained from the very beginning. Alex is the perfect mixture of strength and vulnerability. He’s the brooding alpha hero, tortured and sexy. Tabby is compassionate and sweet. She has her own burdens to bear but is the perfect counterpoint to Alex. The connection between them vibrates with chemistry and tension. They are very relatable and real. They have flaws and make mistakes. The secondary characters are just as great—you get to see the whole gang from the rest of the series. Someone please tell me books with Tabby’s brothers are in the works? Ryan has done a wonderful job pulling back the veil on addiction and how it affects not only the person addicted but those who love them. Alex’s struggles are very realistic and portrayed with honesty. As the family member of an alcoholic, I appreciated that the disease wasn’t glossed over. I can’t wait to continue reading the rest of the Montgomery Ink stories, Carrie Ann Ryan is definitely becoming one of my go-to authors for amazing stories and sexy tattooed men. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

This book follows Alex Montgomery and Tabby Collins and all their twists and turns to be together. I absolutely loved this book!! Alex (in my opinion) is the strongest of all the Montgomery's after everything that he went through. After his stint in rehab he is just trying to get though day by day and still find his way back to being a part of his family without feeling like an outsider. Tabby, who they consider to be an honorary Montgomery, seems to be the only person who truly trusts him and allows him to find his way back. All while loving him and being there for him. After reading this book, and reading his reason's for drinking to begin with, I can't say that I blame him! Although, I will say-he is ever so much nicer than I ever would be in the same situation! Throw in Tabby, and the issues she deals with-most definitely worth the read. This book is now my all time favorite in this series! I cannot wait for the next book in this series or the spin-off of Tabby's brothers! I voluntarily reviewed and advanced reader copy of this book.

Alex Montgomery is an alcoholic in recovery. He has come back to the Montgomery fold after a successful rehab but he still has the demons that drove him to a bottle. Tabitha is the admin at Montgomery Inc. and she has been infatuated with Alex for a long time. When these two decide to come together they have to work hard to not only build something together but help Alex rebuild everything he lost. Carrie Ann Ryan is a new author for me. I had not read the rest of the Montgomery Ink books and was a little apprehensive to start this one not having done so. However, even with mention of the Montgomery siblings liberally peppered through the story, it was easy to delve into. I quite enjoyed the story of what it takes to come back from the mistakes of your past and to rebuild yourself after great trials. Alex, carrying around deep hurts both from the outside and the regrets of the ones he caused, is a very likable character. He hides his intense hurts in his heart and it takes a strong woman, Tabitha, to help him to release those hurts. Tabitha is the woman we all would like to be. Strong, capable, loving. She has a deep well of strength that she can call upon, even when she thinks she can't. This was a good read with true-to-life characters and a relatable storyline

Because both of them knows about pain. they are able to help each other to heal. I loved this book. I can't wait to read about the next Montgomery

Ink Exposed is Book 6 in the Montgomery Ink series by Carrie Ann Ryan. While the books do not need to be read in order, this is an incredible series so I highly recommend starting from the beginning. While Alex’s story has been a long time coming and even though it was rough waiting for him to finish rehab and work on controlling his alcoholism, it was well worth it. Ms. Ryan outdid herself on this story. The chemistry between Alex and Tabby was spot on and she did a superb job with a very sensitive topic. All in all this was an excellent addition to one of my favorite series. I cannot wait to see what Ms. Ryan has in store for the Montgomery’s next.

I was one of those who were clamoring for Alex’s story. Alex is the baby brother who turned to alcohol rather than his family when his problems grew too tough to ignore. Everything came to a head at Miranda and Deckers wedding. Alex went into rehab after that. He has now been sober a little over a year and he is fighting to stay in control. Falling for Tabby is the antithesis of control but may just be the best thing that has ever happened to him. I love that the author doesn’t dismiss or belittle his struggles to stay sober. Nor does she shy from the problems inherent in a relationship with a recovering alcoholic. Watching Tabby and Alex heal each other was truly beautiful. Ink Exposed is a fantastic addition to the series and well worth the wait.

I loved it! Alex was always intriguing to me. It broke my heart to learn his secrets. Tabby is wonderful and so understanding. She was the extra support Alex needed in addition to the large Montgomery clan. I love this series and can't wait for Storm's story!
