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 how much desire burns between them or their own personal hang-ups, 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 read.

I loved Kaylee and Landon. They tried their relationship once, but they both needed to grow to be ready for them to be together. They are wonderful especially when their friendship blossomed into more. I received an ARC of this book and voluntarily reviewed it.

Each and every Montgomery Ink book by Carrie Ann Ryan is a page turner. Kaylee and Landon are another couple who prove sometimes to find love that lasts, you recognize your love at last.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book Ok my friends, for those of you who don’t know Kaylee and Landon have been circling around each other for a year. They’re friends and have helped the Colorado Springs gang get their head together when need be and this little story gives us the why on the circling. It is a sweet and lovely story of two friends realizing the relationship they thought they didn’t want, they truly did and didn’t consciously know it. You also get to see a bit of their family life and learn what makes them ticked. The artist and the money man, you wouldn’t think that they’d fit together but they truly do and it’s beautiful to see. It’s a beautiful thing when two friends find love, its even more beautiful when they find it with each other.

I am so excited that our author finally gave us the answer so many have wondered about what... What was going on with Kaylee and Landon. For books and books they have been fluttering around each other and we the readers and of course the Montgomerys and their adopted family have all wondered if they are a couple or not. Do you need to have read any of the other books in this series to "get" this book? No but let me say that if you want a wonderful read I HIGHLY suggest all of the Montgomery Ink series. Note this is a shorter book, a novella so you can enjoy it in an evening with a glass of wine or hot chocolate. Snuggle up in bed and say hello to some of our favorite Montgomery friends in Colorado while we watch the dance of Landon and Kaylee to true love. I can not want to travel to the next city to visit more of Montgomery clan...

Ink By Numbers is a short sweet story featuring some secondary characters that we have grown to love. We have been curious about the relationship between Kaylee and Landon and this story fills us in. A sweet and sexy tale told with wit and humor.

I don't recall what I paid for this but it was ultrashort. Only 33 of 66 pages were the actual story. I loved what story was there, but with so much filler - reviews, lists of books, multiple samples and summaries of books I have already read... this seems like it was just stuffed for a higher page count on that retailer that pays by the page. Not happy at all and miss the days when this author wrote fully developed stories. This could have included more about their relationship by bringing in their secret past dating and got it up to a reasonable short story to novella length. What a shame. I am really hesitant to buy any more books by her now if this is becoming the standard.

Kaylee and Landon have been giving us little hints as to what they could be for quite a while now and i'm so happy to finally get their story! I loved Kaylee and Landon! They both had some things that were keeping them from moving forward but love does what it want when it wants. This was quick and sweet and oh so very sexy! I can't wait to see what else comes from the Montgomery clan!!!!

Carrie Ann Ryan sweeps readers off their feet with the latest installment of the Montgomery Ink, Colorado Springs series with Ink by Numbers. If you have been reading the Montgomery's of Colorado Springs you have gotten to know a little bit about Kaylee and Landon. Kaylee is the lovely and creative owner of Brushes with Lushes. Kaylee has a past I wasn’t expecting but that past helped mold her into the pretty awesome person she has become. Landon is a solid friend of the Montgomery’s and a numbers nerd. The hottie of a man has been a in a rut with his life. Over the course of the Colorado Springs spin off of The Montgomery Ink series we have seen Kaylee and Landon have dance around the chemistry they create. Are they or not, has been a running question for many. Even them. Now we get their story. Ink by Numbers is a quick, emotional and sweet short story. Kaylee and Landon are so good for each other, it just takes them a while to get there. The romance is slow but once the flame is on, there is not stopping the two. The things we learned of both Kaylee and Landon give such insight to whom they are. Ms. Ryan filled in the blanks for all those questions we had of Landon and Kaylee.

Adored this quick yet highly entertaining journey that finally gives us the journey of a couple that I for one have been wondering about for a few books now.... Loved their emotionally sweet, witty and engaging adventure filled with uncertainty and passion. Looking forward to visiting the Montgomery clan again.

This was a novella about Kaylee and Landon who we have seen in previous Montgomery family books. It was a nice resolution for these two characters. You do need to read the other books where these to appear to fully understand and appreciate their relationship. I love when every CAR couple finds their HEA.

Landon and Kaylee have been dancing around each other for the entirety of this series and we finally find out why. This quick read is long on insight to where Kaylee comes from, where Landon is at, and why they finally take a chance on having their HEA together!

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!! I loved reading this snippet and being able to see them get their HEA! As always with the novella's, I wish it had been longer but I can't complain because it was still an amazing read!

Ink by Numbers is a great addition to the Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs series. There have been teasers in the other books about Kaylee and Landon so while it was short (too short!!) it was great to finally get the behind the scenes scoop on these 2 characters. Looking forward to what the author has in store for the Montgomery's next.
Jenn2018 More than 1 year ago
Wow!!!! I love that Kaylee and Landon finally get their story!! You know hey are friends, maybe more, but now you get to them. They both have baggage that caused them to remain friends, and nothing more...until they realize how much they truly mean to each other. It's sweet, steamy and just so good!

This quick read was quite enjoyable. Though short this book delivers an abundance of feels as Kaylee and Landon's romance unfolds. These two share incredible chemistry, clever banter and some very steamy scenes. This was a very good read but I truly wish it had been longer. I can't help feeling that there was so much left unsaid, undone and unexplored with this couple.

Loved it. A short little read but very sexy. It is very well written. Love how the characters from the other books come in to play. Just love me some Montgomerys. Can't wait for the next one.

Kaylee comes from a wealthy family and always did what was expected of her which included marrying her now ex-husband. She now owns an art store and has built the life she wants with a great group of friends including Landon and the Montgomery clan. Landon and Kaylee have become best friends and spend a lot of time together. A year ago, they crossed the line for one night but decided that would be it as they didn’t want to destroy their friendship. A year later they can’t stop thinking about each other or that night. Are they finally willing to admit what everyone else in their circle of friends know and that is that they belong together? Short and sweet it was great to get some insight into Kaylee and Landon and spend some time with the characters that we know and love.

I ADORE these novellas!!! We constantly saw glimpses of Kaylee and Landon, and always heard about their elusive coupling. I was Sooo excited to finally get their story! I loved how they slowly fell into this relationship, even if they didn’t realize that’s what they were doing. They became such good fiends and that makes for the best relationship. I also loved the amount of depth we got into their lives. We got just enough about what makes Landon and Kaylee tick. It was the perfect amount of everything for this novella!

This series never disappoints! I love every story and the characters are the best... I never want it to end! Can't wait for the next book!

I really enjoyed this story! It is a really quick, short read. We have been getting bits and pieces of Landon and Kaylee throughout the Colorado Springs series. We never really knew what was going on between them but that something was. It was nice to get this story and to see their happy ending. The sex is explicit and fits perfectly into the story. I loved getting to know Landon and Kaylee better and seeing them interact with each other when it was just them. This was a fun story and if you've read the rest of the books in the Colorado Springs Montgomery Ink you are definitely going to want, and enjoy, getting to see this couple make it. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
