About this ebook

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a sexy new contemporary series.

Devin Carr likes his life. He likes his job, his family, the outlook for his future. Then he meets her. Erin. As soon as he sees her, drunk and wearing a sequined dress as her world crashes down around her and she fights to put on a brave face, he knows what he’s been missing. Her.

When Erin Taborn finds her high school sweetheart and husband banging the former head cheerleader of their graduating class at their high school reunion, she tells herself she’ll be fine. She just needs to figure out what fine means. There’s only one problem. Devin. She didn’t plan on him. And for someone who thinks they have all their plans in place, that’s a problem.

One she’ll have to find an answer to if this whole friends-with-benefits thing is going to work.

If not, she’ll fail just like with everything else.

**There is a bonus epilogue exclusively in the audio and ebook editions!**

He likes his life, his job, his family and the outlook for his future. But then Devin Carr meets her and he knows what he’s been missing. Her. When she finds her husband banging the former head cheerleader of their graduating class, Erin Taborn tells herself she’ll be fine. She just needs to figure out what fine means. But she didn’t plan on him. Now she’ll have to find the answer to if this whole friends-with-benefits thing is going to work. The ‘Less Than’ series starts off with an emotionally gripping, sweetheart of a romance that readers can really sink their teeth and their hearts into. The characters are strong, vivid and really stand out to readers, grabbing them by their hearts and refusing to let go. The relationship between Devin and Erin starts off on a sour note as Erin makes such a devastating discovery and while Devin’s plays the white knight, he know it can’t possible go anywhere. This ‘real’ romance hits readers right in the gut and ensures that they want to feel every emotional twist and turn that happens as Erin and Devin strive to reach a happily ever after. The plot of the story happens at a steady pace that keeps the anticipation building while giving the readers a chance to really get to know the characters which in turn ensures that they are cheering this couple through the ups and downs of a friends-with- benefits relationship to their HEA. The reader’s support of the hero and heroine flipping from one to other, as each make mistakes and overcomes issues in this wonderfully ‘real’ romance that leaves readers breathless.

Book one of the Less Than series Breathless With Her by Carrie Anne Ryan Erin is a wedding cake maker and slowly growing into a more independent women with opening her own business. Erin and Nicholas Erin’s husband go to there high school reunion and while there Erin life falls apart. That when she meets Devin Carr at a bar. Devin is Dimitri Carr brother from previous Montgomery book and Devin is a sexy tattooed postal worker who has everything in life a job he loved a house and a close busy family but no love of his life. I really enjoyed this book especially with main female character having a lot of baggage and Devin having Baggage but dealed with it in a healthy way and at some point helps Erin how to too. This book was made into a audiobook and had different narrators then the one used in previous books, this is first time I’ve heard Samantha Cook and Jacob Morgan narrate but as usual Carrie Ann Ryan really picks awesome with narrators. Looking forward to more in series especially the rest of the Carr family but also Devin bff.

** spoiler alert ** I absolutely loved Devin and Erin!!!! Devin grabbed me from the start, and i could help but feel for Erin I've marked this as a spoiler but i just wanted to touch on this without giving anything away that others don't want to know before they read. But i read so many books where the hero is the one that messes up leaving him to apologize, or the heroine messes up and the hero is still the one that apologises. I liked the twist in this where she messed up but realizes she's the one that needs to fix things Devin is now one of my new favourites ❤❤❤
