About LOVE RESTORED
In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…
Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.
Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

Graham stood then, moving around the table so he was right in front of her. He took her by her chin, grabbed her fingers with his other hand, and forced her to stand. She might have protested, but she couldn’t, not with Graham, not right then.
“I like control in bed, Blake,” Graham growled. “I need it. I’m not talking dominant and submissive, but I need to be the one showing you where I need you so I can make you feel, make you come, make you forget to think. Do you think you can do that? Do you think you can let me have the reins if only for the night? And maybe for more nights afterward? I’ll never tell you what to do out of bed. But in bed? In bed, I want you to give yourself to me.”
She let out a shaky breath. “That’s not me, Graham.” She met his gaze, saw the heat in his eyes. “You’re going to have to work for it. I’ll… let you in, but you have to know I’m not easy.”
“Good,” he growled. “I didn’t think you were the first time I saw you, and I like the fact that you’re going to make this fun and so fucking amazing.” He cupped her face and leaned closer. “I want you, Blake. Can I have you?”
“If you have to ask, then who is in control?”
He kissed her then, hard. “Because no matter how much I want it, without it freely given, it’s not control at all.” He closed his eyes, leaning his forehead against hers. Her heart beat quickly, her breaths coming in pants from just his mere presence. Of course, there was nothing ‘mere’ about him. “I’m going to fuck you, Blake. And you better fuck me back just as hard.”
“You got it, Gallagher,” she said on a laugh, then gasped as he slid his hand behind the waistband of her leggings and under her panties.
“So fucking wet,” he growled. “I’m going to fuck you with my fingers in my kitchen then take you to my bed so I can eat you out. I want to lick every inch of you while you ride my face. Then I want to fuck you from behind, my hands digging into your hips as I go so deep, neither of us can catch our breath. And when I come, I want you to come, too, your pussy clenching my cock until I’m spent and you’re a pile of limbs on the bed. What do you say to that, Blake? Can you come for me?” He growled the last words again as he speared her with his fingers, his thumb pressing hard against her clit.
She came for him, instantly, her body shaking. She’d have come from his words alone, the feeling of his growl along her skin. Add in his fingers, his touch, and she was a goner. She dug her nails into his biceps, her head thrown back as she tried to catch her breath. Graham latched on to her neck, licking, sucking, biting.
“You’re fucking beautiful when you come,” he said softly before sliding his hand out of her pants. He cupped the back of her neck with his free hand, forcing his gaze to hers. “Part those pretty lips for me.” When she parted her mouth on a breath, he slid his wet finger along her lips before pulling away to suck her juices off each finger. Throughout it all, his gaze never left hers. Damn it. Graham Gallagher licking himself clean after fingering her was the hottest thing she’d ever seen in her life.
And they were both still clothed.
