Bittersweet Promises (Montgomery Ink Legacy #1) by Carrie Ann Ryan ~ Book Review

Title: Bittersweet Promises
Series: Montgomery Ink Legacy #1
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 24, 2022


New York Times Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan returns with the next generation of Montgomerys and a second chance romance bound in memory and heat.

Leif Montgomery fell hard for Brooke Alder in Paris when they were young, and he thought their fling was just an early taste of what life had in store for him.

But life had other plans, and he didn’t find that kind of love—or see Brooke’s face—for years.

Until he visits his cousin’s house and sees who’s moved in next door.

They’ve both changed: she’s a struggling single mom, he’s running from a past he’s trying to hide while opening up a new tattoo shop. Yet the moment he sees her again, he knows she’s the one for him.

And with one look, Brooke knows that she can’t fight the desire that pulled them together before, despite the skeletons in both their closets.

So I was a little late to the party and I haven't read Leif's parent's book in the original Montgomery Ink, I started later in the series but I do know something about Austin and Sierra's relationship and Leif's past, I even read a little about them in the Montgomery Ink Bites Cookbook, so I was eager to get my hands on his story and see how things have turned out for him. 

Leif and Brooke met ten years ago in Paris and due to a miscommunication they never saw one another again...well that is until she moves next door to his cousin Lake. Now a single mother Brooke is a little different then he remembers but she is mostly the same girl he fell in love with all those years ago.

Brooke and Leif both know the love they had all those years ago still simmers below and it won't take much for it to reignite to a full boil but with the secrets they are both keeping is it safe to forge ahead or will they get burned again?

I loved this Steamy Second Chance Romance it was a great intro to the next set of Montgomery's to get their stories and wow you won't want to miss any of them! I'm excited for Lake's story which is an Enemy to Lovers Romance with Leif's best friend Nick, and it's up next.

If you enjoy Steamy New Adult Contemporary Romances, Single Parent Romances, Large Family Romances, or Second Chance Romances I would recommend this book to you.

Happy Reading!!!
