Summary

Kaylee knows art, friendship, and love. And because she’s known love, she wants nothing to do with it ever again. She likes her life just the way it is. Her art and her Brushes with Lushes classes keep her sane and happy. 

Landon spends his days with numbers and financial spreadsheets. At night, he just wants to relax, but the only way he can do that is with a woman. But these days, not just any woman will do. 

Kaylee and Landon do an excellent job of dancing around each other. But no matter their own personal hang-ups or how much desire burns between them, they’ll need to make a choice: life as they know it, or a life that could be so much more.

Author Note: Ink by Numbers is a Montgomery Ink short story and a little different than what you’re used to from me. It’s shorter than my other novellas at only 15,000 words. It has a complete HEA and is perfect for a steamy evening, one-sitting listen.

Kaylee & Landon

What a nice quick listen. She fit a lot in a short story. We learned about the characters, what they use to be to each other and what they want now. The characters are cool and the narration was great. I wonderfully well rounded story, I recommend this book.

loved it

Kaylee's mom (in name only) was a soulless viper. Her comments to Kaylee were beyond ignorant, hurtful, and damaging!! I liked that Kaylee and Landon finally found their way to each other and the love they had and deserved ! A real friends to lovers romance- the best kind. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review. The narrator's voice and expressions added to my enjoyment.

Novellas are fun

It was nice to revisit the Montgomery's in the ink series. I've listed to most all of them. If your a fan of them, or Joe Arden, this is for you. It's only an hour so it's great to listen to it on the go~

Kaylee and Landon

This was a relatively quick short story, featuring two characters who have appeared throughout the Colorado Springs series, Kaylee and Landon. They’ve been interested in each other in the other stories but in this book, we get to know them better and find out how they really feel about each other. It was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster and for such a short book it certainly had a lot packed into it.

Kaylee is a divorcee she has a privileged family background but having turned her back on it years ago is considered a disappointment by her mother. She is an artist who has known love but doesn't want anything to do with again she loves her life just the way it is.

Landon, is a numbers man during the day, at night he relaxes by spending time with women and has his eye on someone special she's independent, beautiful, and sassy you've guessed it it's Kaylee. They are great characters who keep dancing around each other, they are close friends but could they be something more?

I could say more but that would involve spoilers which I don't want to do, what I will say is that I really loved this one, I liked both the characters and the way Carrie Ann built their story. The narration was excellent and brought the characters to life beautifully.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Quick But Great Listen!

This is a quick novella so that we could have Landon and Kaylee's story! We have seen snippets of the 2 in previous books and I know I wondered if they would actually get together or if they would each have a story later down the road. This book gave us their background and how these two actually move past the point of being best friends and move into the love of each other's life part. I loved it! Landon is beyond sweet but he also can push when he needs to. He is a man that isn't afraid to do the things he needs to in order to be happy. Even if that means he may lose the friendship of the person who matters the most to him. Kaylee has some issues that she had to work through but she is strong and is an amazing character not only in this book but in all of them. And these 2 are HOT together!! Joe Arden does an amazing job with the narration. There aren't any strange accents or any weird wording. Which is great because that tends to throw me off! As always with the novella's, I wish it had been longer but I can't complain because it was still an amazing read!

Sweet friends to lovers romance! Loved it!

This was a sweet friends to lovers story. It’s nice to finally get a closer look at Kaylee’s and Landon’s relationship and see them get their own HEA. A short, drama-free romance with strong and likable characters. Really enjoyed it.

Joe Arden nailed the narration, as always. He has a very warm voice that’s really nice to listen to and always does an amazing job at interpreting the characters and their emotions.

Short but Worth It

As always I wish Carrie Ann's books were longer but alas this was a short one but completely worth it. If you've read the previous books in this series you know Landon and Kaylee. It's a long time coming for these two and they finally get their HEA.

Joe Arden, as always, brings these characters to life. I'm never disappointed when he narrates a book and I'm always excited when a book I'm interested in has him reading. It pushes me to purchase that book.

I was lucky enough to receive this audio book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Absolutely love this book but would have loved more

Book 3.5 of the Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs Bonus book by Carrie Ann Ryan
Kaylee is a artist that own and runs Brushes with Lushes where all the ladies is this series go to paint while drinking wine.
We’ve been teased for books now about Landon and Kaylee’s relationship but not a lot of depth to it.
You actually don’t know much about Kaylee until this book, she’s a rich kid that decided she didn’t want a loveless cheating husband, so she left and went with her dream and became an artist.
Absolutely love that Kaylee is so much more then the timid artist that you come to know so far in series. She’s sassy and funny and I love when she phones Landon and demands he take her for sushi.
Gutted this isn’t a longer book because I was loving the story so much.
I loved this book for much I got the audiobook more which was even better then ebook. Absolutely love Joe Arden
Great story and HEA.
