REVIEW: Jagged Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan
The Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs series continues with a couple fighting to keep what they thought they had and gain what they didn’t know they needed.
Roxie Montgomery met her soul mate when she least expected it. When he asked her to marry her, she thought her happily ever after was only just beginning. Then, she found that walking into the sunset was much harder than her favorite books made it out to be. After a crushing loss, she feels as though she doesn’t know her husband anymore, or rather…she doesn’t know herself.
Carter Marshall has loved Roxie since the first time he saw her. But as the days pass between them, so does the distance. He doesn’t know how to show her that he’s all in, and honestly doesn’t know if she’s in at all. When an accident changes everything, they’ll have to decide if what they have can be salvaged, or if starting over is the answer. Or even possible.
Without fighting, without a true new beginning, sometimes, the remnants of what was lost can leave anyone jagged, shells of what they were before. It will take more than the idea of forever for Roxie and Carter to find themselves again, but as the Montgomerys know, nothing worth fighting for is easy.

As always I was excited to get the newest book from Carrie Ann Ryan. Truth be told I never even read the blurbs because she is one of my must read authors. I know what I get from her is going to be good so I always go into it blind for the most part. It helps me enjoy and savor her books all the more.
With this one we start after the couple has found one another and married. They are at the beginning of their happily ever after. However, they find out (as many couples do) that happily ever after is much harder than the books make it out to be. Carrie Ann Ryan has the ability to write characters that sometimes shatter you before they put you back together again. Roxie and Carter were those characters for me. Life throws them curves and leaves them trying to decide if they should start over together. Is what they had worth fighting for or should they go their separate ways?
One of my favorite things about all of the books in this series as well as the original is that the Montgomerys are a strong family and never more so than when they stand together and support one another. This book shows and reminds of that. We once again see a family who rallies together to support two of their own who need the support even if they don’t think they do. This book left me at times in tears and in the end wishing I was a part of this amazing family who not only loves with their whole hearts but their souls as well.
