About BREAKING WITHOUT YOU

Available April 16, 2019

From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.

~~

I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she’d believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

Read an excerpt from BREAKING WITHOUT YOU:

My head was fuzzy, and it wasn’t just because of the liquor in my system. No, it was because of the man in front of me, the one who currently had his lips pressed to mine. This was such a mistake. This was beyond a mistake. I should have found a way to get into my own ride share and gone home on my own.

But when Beckham asked me on the way back to the pool room if I wanted to get into Cameron’s car or go home alone, I had said that, of course, I wanted to go with Cameron.

Yes, I was drunk, and I was making poor decisions. But, apparently, Beckham thought he was a matchmaker. And he hadn’t wanted me to be forced into a situation I wasn’t comfortable with.

So, yes, while he was a nice man, I was still going to beat him up. Just like I was going to hurt Cameron.

But all thoughts of that fled my mind when Cameron’s hand slid through my hair to cup the back of my head and pull me closer to him. I wrapped my arms around his waist, pressing my body against his as I kissed him even harder. I had forgotten what his kisses felt like. I had forgotten what he felt like. Yes, he was larger than he had been even seven years ago, more muscular, a little sharper-edged. But he still felt like Cameron.

My Cameron.

Yes, I was drunk, but I wasn’t drunk enough to actually think that he was mine.

Yet I couldn’t stop kissing him.

I just wanted to feel. I just wanted to be. I didn’t want to think about Allison, I didn’t want to think about work, I didn’t want to think about my ex-husband and his new wife, I didn’t want to think about the fact that I still had to worry about the rest of Allison’s stuff.

I didn’t want to think about what life would be like without her.

So, I just kissed Cameron. I knew it was selfish, knew this was all a mistake.

But I didn’t stop.

He was the one that pulled away first. And then he leaned his forehead against mine and let out a ragged breath.

“What are we doing?” he asked, his voice rough.

“I don’t know, but I want to keep doing it.”

He pulled back, his brows lowered as he frowned.

“If we do this, it’s going to change everything. We’re not kids anymore.”

“It meant something when we were kids too, though. And I just want to feel. I know it’s all complicated, and I know that this is wrong and stupid. But I have just enough liquor in me to make me brave enough to say it, though not enough where I’ll be taking advantage of you, or you’ll be taking advantage of me.”

He studied my face. “I would say that that’s just the right amount of liquor, the right amount of drunk. But I can’t take advantage of you.”

I moved closer, impossibly close, so we were pressed against one another and I could feel the hard ridge of him on my thigh. “Personal advantage here. It’s just you and me. And you’re helping me feel. I miss feeling. Can you do that? We can deal with the tomorrows tomorrow. We can deal with everything that’s going to hurt. But I just miss people. I miss being held. I just miss it all.”

I miss you.

EXCERPT:

A couple of hours later, I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

I knew it was her before I heard her voice.

Violet was here. And so were the others.

I hadnt known that they came to this bar. I hadnt seen them since I came back to town, but here they were, in my place.

I got this, I said to Beckham as I went over to where Violet, Sienna, and Harmony were sitting.

Hey. I stuffed my hands into my pockets, wondering if I could be more of an idiot. Probably.

Hi,” Sienna said, kind of smiling. The expression didnt really reach her eyes, but I didnt blame her. Everything was still so raw and emotional for them. Violets little sister felt things strongly. She always had, even when we were younger. I didnt know how she felt about Allison.I didnt know how any of them were feeling. Hell, I didn’t know how I was feeling about Allison.

But I was glad that they were here, even if it confused me.

“It’s good to see you, Cameron,” Harmony said softly. She grinned, but like Sienna, it didn’t reach her eyes. Damn it. I wished I could help these three, but I was already out of my depth with so many other things, this would just make it worse for everyone.

I looked over at Violet, clearing my throat. Can I get you ladies something to drink? To eat?

Were here to make sure that the Connolly brothers know that were supporting the bar,Sienna said when Violet didnt reply.

I turned to Violets sister. Really?

Of course. Weve come in on and off over the years, but it’s been more off since weve been so busy with our lives. But thats going to change. We need a new place to actually sit and drink thats not our house with a bottle of wine. Because while thats good, sometimes, you just need to get out. So youre stuck with us. And we need booze. We need lots of fucking booze.

Her eyes filled, and Harmony reached out and grabbed her friends hand. I cleared my throat and nodded.

So, what are we having?”

Beer and shots, Violet said.

My brows rose. Really?

Do you think we cant handle it?

I met Violets gaze and shook my head. I think you can handle just about anything, Violet.” I regretted the words as soon as they left my lips. “I know what you guys like. Ill be right back.

Then I walked away, wondering if I really knew anything at all.

Because, right now, it felt like I was nothing.

New Release + Blog Tour + Excerpt: From Breath and Ruin by Carrie Ann Ryan

About FROM BREATH AND RUIN

Available March 19, 2019

In her YA debut, New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan dives into a world with magic and sacrifice with the Elements of Five.

Five hundred years ago, the Maison Realm was shattered, divided into warring kingdoms of elemental Wielders with fate and truth shadowed and uncertain. Now, factions of both the light and dark venture into the human realm in search of the prophesied Spirit Priestess who is said to Wield the Elements of Five and bring the two fractured kingdoms together.

Lyric has no idea that there’s a realm outside the human one she lives in. When fate and circumstances are pulled from her hands after an accident, and she finds out that nothing is at it seems.

There is a war surrounding her and when Lyric realizes that they are searching for her, she must rely on those she once trusted: a boy who isn’t who she thought, and a new realm of warriors who have come to protect her as she trains.

For the darkness is coming, and the Queen of Obscurité wants to ensure that the King of Lumière can’t get his hands on Lyric. And the only way to ensure that is if Lyric herself is no more…no matter the cost to prophecy.

About the ELEMENTS OF FIVE series

One thousand years ago, there was one realm of magic. The Maison Realm. It held five kingdoms with five kings or queens, who worked together to keep the Maison people safe and ensure the balance of magic. Over the last five hundred years following the Fall, the great war that began the fracture, many of the kingdoms’ inhabitants intermated, and the magics soon became tied to one another in pairs. Except for the Spirit Wielders. The two remaining kingdoms are now converging, and the veil between the two is fading. Only the human realm lies between the two, and no one there knows there is a war surrounding them.

Over time, certain children of the Fall began to leave their respective kingdoms to venture into the human realm in search of the prophesied Spirit Priestess who is said to wield the Elements of Five and bring the two fractured kingdoms together. For the realms are dying without their sister magics. And soon, there will be no more power left to rule the kingdoms, for there will be no more kingdoms left to rule.

 

EXCERPT:

I almost tripped over my feet at the sight of three people standing in front of a house I knew, the trio glaring at one another before seeming to realize that they weren’t alone.

I knew them, of course, it was hard not to know the teenagers in my neighborhood since most of us went to the same high school—or rather, had. Those who hadn’t gone there, opting for homeschool or private schools, still ended up in many of the same social clubs that a lot of us were forced into over the years.

Okay, so maybe forced wasn’t the best word for me since I’d tried a bunch of things as a kid, attempting to figure out what fit me best. The fact that nothing had stuck wasn’t something I wanted to dwell on at the moment, however.

Why?

Namely, the two girls in front of us, and the guy standing with them. The very tall, very built guy that was a couple of years older than us but who I thought always looked like the most perfect human specimen. Ever.

Rhodes Luce.

If I allowed myself to use words like dreamy for a guy, he was beyond dreamy. His light brown skin always looked silken and almost shiny as if he’d just finished a run and was glistening under the sunlight. His brown hair wasn’t just a normal hue, it had what looked to be honey highlights woven in and was longer on the top than on the sides, giving him a disheveled look that made me want to reach out and mess with it myself.

Not that I would ever do that.

Ever.

Not even in dreams.

I swore I saw a shadow again out of the corner of my eye when I thought the word dreams, but I ignored it and pinned my gaze back on Rhodes as I stopped in place, my friends beside me.

Anytime I was near him, I couldn’t stop staring. It wasn’t just his strong cheekbones. Wasn’t just his beauty.

No, it was his eyes.

They were so light, I swore they were silver. But people didn’t really have silver eyes.

Rhodes, though? He totally could.

He wasn’t alone, so I did my best to pry my eyes from him as I awkwardly waved at the bunch. To his left, Rhodes’ younger sister, Rosamond, smiled brightly, her tunic dress blowing in the wind. I was pretty sure Rosamond had been a hippy in a past life and just hadn’t wanted to stop fitting into the era. It worked for her with her flowing curls and almost luminescent brown skin. She looked like a New Age fairy or something, and the way she spoke and acted fit the description.

She’d graduated with the rest of us a few weeks ago, but I hadn’t seen her since.

On Rhodes’ other side stood another former classmate of mine. Alura.

And if I thought Rosamond was strange, Alura was even more out there. Her long, white-blond hair blew in the breeze that I swore sometimes only affected her—not that that was a thing, though it sure seemed like it. She had the most vivid blue eyes I’d ever seen, like something out of a movie with special contacts, and she rarely spoke.

Honestly, I hadn’t even known that Alura was friends with Rhodes and Rosamond, but the three definitely seemed to know each other.

“Oh, hi!” Rosamond said, skipping toward us. “I was just talking to Rhodes and Alura about a hike tomorrow and was going to come by and see if you wanted to go, Lyric.”

I blinked. I hadn’t really hung out with any of them outside of school, and never with Rhodes. Sure, I had an awkward crush on the guy, but it wasn’t as if I’d truly spoken to him beyond a few short words since he and Rosamond moved to the neighborhood a couple of years ago. He’d already graduated by that point, so we hadn’t gone to school together, and I rarely saw him in the neighborhood since his parents worked a lot and I never saw them.

“A hike? Really?” Emory scoffed.

Rosamond glanced over at Emory, seeming to dismiss her with a single look. “Since we’re going to the same campus, Lyric, I figured it would be nice to hang out a bit. You know? Oh, you guys should come, too,” she said to Braelynn and Emory. “It’s going to be a great day, and this way, I’m not hiking alone with Rhodes, who gets all growly when I’m slow.”

“I don’t growl.”

And yet…he totally just growled.

Was I a puddle of goo just then? Because I felt like I was a puddle of goo.

Emory glanced at me, and I had a feeling I wasn’t hiding my inner thoughts well.

Holding back a curse, I smiled at Rosamond. “I think a hike would be fun. It’s supposed to be good weather. What did you guys have in mind?”

Rhodes shrugged, and I did my best not to stare at his forearms as he stuffed his hands into his pockets. “A place we like to go to. It’s about an hour outside of the city, but not too far. And the hike isn’t that bad since Rosamond here can do it.”

“I can hear you,” she sing-songed.

“I know. I can see you.” He gave me a wink, and I almost looked behind me to make sure it was me he was looking at.

From Braelynn’s subtle nudge and Emory’s almost inaudible growl, I figured it was me he’d been looking at.

Oh, my.

“What about you, Alura?” Braelynn asked, always the peacekeeper—and an amazing friend.

The other girl shook her head. “Not this time. It’s not for me.” She met my gaze with those piercing blue eyes and didn’t blink. “But soon, I believe. Soon.”

And with that, she turned and walked away without another word. The Luce siblings didn’t look worried about what had just happened, but Emory rolled her eyes.

“No wonder they call her a witch.”

“Be nice,” I whispered. “Stop being so mean.”

“Whatever. I have a thing with my parents tomorrow, so count me out.” Emory looked over at me as if I should say no, as well.

I truly didn’t understand the girl who had once been my closest friend and my first girlfriend. She wasn’t who she once was. But the thing was, I wasn’t either. Maybe that’s why it was good that things were changing as quickly as they were.

“I’m in,” I said quickly.

“Me, too,” Braelynn added.

“What time and where should we meet you?” I ignored Emory standing at my side, trying to push back the little twinge inside me that indicated that this was just one more symbol of the end of an era.

Rosamond clapped her hands. “Oh, yay! I can’t wait.”

Rhodes looked at me, his eyes flashing that silver I thought had to be contacts. “I can’t wait either.”

I bit my lip as they told me the details, and I did my best not to look too excited. Because this wasn’t a date. It wasn’t something that was a new beginning. Not really. It was just a hike, a day out in the mountains, something all Coloradoans did as much as possible—at least the ones who loved nature.

And yet, even as I told myself that, I wondered if it was the truth.

Because this felt different. It felt important.

And for some reason, I didn’t think it was only about the boy with the silver eyes in front of me.

New Release + Release Blitz + Excerpt: Jagged Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

He loved her from the moment he saw her. Now he has to fight to keep her. Carrie Ann Ryan’s Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs series continues with JAGGED INK, which is available now!

About JAGGED INK

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.

Read an Excerpt from JAGGED INK

They still had a couple of hours before bed, but neither of them commented on that. They were just going to go their separate ways, a prelude to what would happen as soon as Carter was completely healed.

Roxie gave him a tight nod and then went upstairs. He did his best not to look at her. Because when he looked at her, he ached.

Because he missed his wife. He missed her smile, he missed everything about her.

He missed the way she would laugh at something inane and then bury her face in her hands because she knew that it was silly to laugh at it.

He missed her touch, her taste. Yeah, he missed sex, but it wasn’t like they’d had sex recently. They used to have their hands on each other all the time.

And then she’d stopped talking.

She’d stopped smiling.

And he couldn’t figure out how to make her do either of them again. He’d tried, but it hadn’t worked.

And then, eventually, he’d stopped trying altogether.

And she hadn’t done anything about it.

So, this was his fault. Because he had tried, and he’d failed. It would always be his fault.

Always.

EXCERPT

I like the fact that you think I have strength, but it’s the whole…stronger than you think you are. And it’s not because it’s not true, it’s just the fact that everybody and their mother said that to me. Literally, and their mother.”

“Really?”

They were standing on her porch, the wind a little bit too cold for them to be doing so, but she wasn’t ready to go inside yet, and she didn’t know if she was going to invite him in either. “Everybody always assumed that I thought myself weak. At least that’s what the words sounded like to me when I thought about them. I know that’s not what they meant. I know that they were trying to tell me that I was doing well, and that despite everything happening to me, that I was making strides. But it just made me think that they thought I wouldn’t be able to handle it. And yet, I did. Because I had to. Because there was no other way to keep moving forward if I didn’t handle it.”

Ryan reached out and brushed his thumb across her cheek. “That’s not what I meant. And I’m sorry I made you think about it that way.”

“It’s not you.”

“It’s me?” he finished for her, and she shook her head.

“No, that’s not what I meant. People have a way of underestimating the power of their words. And I know they don’t mean anything by it. I know when faced with loss and especially faced with other people’s loss, they just don’t have the words. And sometimes that’s okay, to not have the words. I know it’s on me that I’m feeling that way, but because I heard that phrase so much, sometimes, it just annoys me a little.”

“Then I’ll try not to say it again. Even if I do think you’re pretty kickass.”

She smiled then. “Really?”

“Very kickass. Abby?”

She swallowed hard again. “What?” Her voice was breathy.

“Can I kiss you now?”

“I want you to. But only if you come inside.”

She hadn’t meant to say that, but as soon as she said the words, she knew they were right.

He looked at her then, his gaze dark and intense. And then he nodded.
