#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Chance Encounter (The Lamberts of Pacific Knoll Book 1) by Kate Vale

When Alexis McCord’s abusive boyfriend is arrested, she seizes the opportunity to escape with her young son. Now she and 5-year-old Chance are building a life in the tiny, remote beach town of Sandy Reach, Washington. Lexi is even acting on her dream of becoming a baker with her own shop—if only Hugh never finds her.

For Fletcher Lambert, distraught after the death of his wife and baby daughter, Sandy Reach is a handy place to escape his memories, away from his law office and his large, well-intentioned but intrusive family, who are watching and waiting for him to move on. He’s not sure that will ever happen.

Then Fletcher meets Chance. When he learned that the waitress serving him at Omar’s pub is the boy’s mother, sparks fly in in spite of his intentions never to get close to a woman again. Lexi feels them, too, but her mistrust of men forces her to ignore Chance when he declares that Fletcher would make the perfect dad. After all, who listens to a five-year-old in the midst of all this grown-up angst?

Lexi McCord is trying to raise her young son right and that means getting away from his abusive and theft of a father. They run while he is in prison after he was arrested for robbing a jewelry store. Their car breaks down outside of Sandy Reach, so that where she tries to change their life around. It’s taken two years, but life is finally looking up for them.
It’s been a year since the death of his wife and baby daughter and Fletcher Lambert is still not over it. He has a hard time being around his niece and nephew, almost has a panic attack when he is called to go to the ER for his little brother, and is losing clients at his office where he practices law.
His law partner has put his foot down and told him he needs to get away and finally deal with it and maybe get some closure so he decides to go to Sandy Reach for some winter fishing and so he doesn’t have to be around his family for the holidays he decides to go for a couple of months.
Fletcher meets a child alone of the beach the first day he is there. He can’t believe that a 5 year old would be allowed to be alone on the beach, let alone be allowed on the beach in the winter without the proper clothing, he learns shortly that he got away from his babysitter. It isn’t until he starts talking to the child that he realizes that he recognizes the child as the one that almost ran out in front of his car when he drove into town and that his mom his the waitress at the pub he just left. The woman that has him thinking thought that were nothing about his wife.
Lexi tries hard to stay way from Fletcher after he tries to pay for fixing her son’s coat he found on the beach after that faithful day, but she can’t. There is something in him that calls to her.
What happens next is a story of a man falling in love again, a woman learning that all men aren’t bad and it’s ok to have feeling for one, and a child that knows what he wants and how to protect his mom.
Vale does a wonderful job showing the emotional storm of a man dealing with the loss of his whole world. She also does a great job showing how hard it is to be a single parent and how hard it is to trust again after leaving a abusive relationship.
When two people learn to love again it’s wonderful and I can’t wait to see more of the Lambert family.

My mother said I wrote my first book when I was five–after I carefully copied the words in one of my favorite stories. A favorite children’s book I still have is a first edition, signed by the author, of MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE, perhaps one reason I included reference to it in my indie-novel, PACKAGE DEAL.

Counting my current work as a novelist, I think I’ve experienced at least five different careers, the first four providing lots of grist for the mill of what my characters do or would like to do. One example? Olivia Brown in GRANDDAD’S HOUSE is a realtor. I was one, too! And realtors show up again in CHOICES and in a new book not yet ready for publication.

I hope you enjoy my stories. I love to hear from readers.

#NewRelease – Murray’s Law: (Urban Post-Apocalyptic Thriller) (The Night Blind Saga Book 2) by Christina L Rozelle

Murray's Law: (Urban Post-Apocalyptic Thriller) (The Night Blind Saga Book 2)

 

“You ever heard of Murphy’s Law?”
“Uh, yes. I think so. Everything that—”
“Can go wrong, will,” he finishes for me. “Yessir. But let me tell you a little something about Murray’s Law. When you’ve lost it all and you have nothing left to lose, when you’re stripped of all choices but to live or die, that’s when you get to choose whether to rise above or fall, defeated. That’s what you get to do now. It’s time to go back and make it right, Grace.”

I was broken before I was reborn, rebuilt from the ground up.
I was a devastated plane with no hope for life.
A toxic wasteland with no human survivors.
But I made it out, miraculously.
And I know who I am, now.
I’m Grace Anne Vincent, daughter of Eileen and Henry Vincent, sister to Corbin Michael Vincent, and best friend to Lucy Eve Davisson. I’m in love with a mystery named Gideon, and I have a will to live, lit by a fire deep in my soul.
The fire comes from loss.
It comes from longing and pain and thirst for vengeance.
It comes from agony and passion and loneliness.
I’ll survive.
I know I will, because I have, and I’ve even been given a second life. A life where I know who I am and what’s right.
I see the light of truth,
even in the darkness
of mental
collapse.

“It’s what we’ve all become now: hidden lights in the dark.”

OMFG! I can’t begin to tell you how incredible this story is! This is all about having your quality of life leveling up on a permanent f’ing opposite day with some giggly trips down memory lane. 🙂 Just like the first story, Murray’s Law stays INTENSE! No matter what obstacle Grace is up against she remembers Murray’s Law. She has a choice. Not always an easy choice but a choice nonetheless. Grace is an amazingly flawed character that is continually growing emotionally and mentally. Gideon saved her and they have fallen in love. This author knows how to make the apocalypse romantic and STEAMY! As a matter of fact, all the characters that are introduced into this story are all fighting some sort of demon, their own apocalypse. I absolutely could not put this down. So many plot twists! I can’t really go into what happens because I will end up writing a book report and I am sure you want to know what happens without being told. With that being said, this story compliments Dysphoria and Grace perfectly. Even though Murray’s Law is the second in this series it is just as great, if not better, than the first. This series has made it to my top favorite, ever. If you like beautifully flawed characters with intense, action packed, and HAWT plots then you will love this just like I do. Well done, Christina Rozelle!!!! I’m hooked!!!!

Ever since I can remember I’ve observed life, people, and things with a sense of awe and wonder. The stories I write are a conglomeration of my life’s observations, experiences, heartbreaks, and triumphs, bits and pieces of the beauty and devastation inherent all around us, and inside each of us. But for many years I thought I was broken. My “overactive” imagination was seen as a defect by me and those around me. Through my struggles with PTSD, BPD, suicidal depression, and debilitating addictions, I clawed at the earth in my hole, gazing toward the sun high above me. Would I ever make it out alive? Would I one day be able to walk beneath that blue sky a free woman, and share that gift with others? For a long time I doubted that would ever happen for me . . .

One day, my eleven-year-old came home from school, excited that they had just started reading “The Hunger Games” in her fifth grade class (teacher skipped the kissing parts—GASP!). Having been newly sober, and looking for ways to rebuild my relationship with my daughter who’d been through so much during my sickness, I brought up the idea of writing a YA novel of my own, and she’d help with the plotting and characters. I’d been writing poetry and prose forever, and never pictured myself as a fiction writer, but if it meant strengthening my bond with my child, I was willing to give it a try. What happened as I began this story about orphaned angel-humans, reptilian antagonists, and shadow-animal people, was . . . well, I scrapped that and started something else. Haha

My first full-length novel, “The Butterfly Prophecy,” was unpublishable, riddled with plot holes and a plethora of other errors, and ultimately ended up in a box. As a high school dropout with little college under my belt, I took to the local library and Google to learn how to (really) write a novel, and I was soon on my way to creating a work of art I’d be proud to share with the world. Though The Butterfly Prophecy wasn’t published, many elements, themes, settings, and a few characters from that story were used in the Treemakers Trilogy, which was really cool! Micah Greenleigh, Ms. Ruby, Emerson, Ty, and Aura (Joy’s mom) were so real to me that I couldn’t help but transplant them into their forever story home.

During the nine months it took to write that first book, I realized that writing was medication for me. When I wrote, my life made sense, I had purpose, I could breathe, and think clearly. I could use my tattered past to create a beautiful work of art, and that alone turned my life around completely. Two novels later I gave birth to “The Treemakers” during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month in November)2013. I scrapped that and rewrote the whole thing, publishing The Treemakers a year later. During its creation, I realized this was what I was put on this planet to do. Creating these characters for you to experience and feel, to love and hate, to laugh and cry and escape from reality into remarkable worlds with, brings me immense joy and fulfillment. So, thank you for your part in my journey, for being the receivers of this gift that was so freely given to me. You complete me. (Cheesy, but true! 😉 I’m continually amazed at the outpouring of love and support for me and my work, and I promise to do my best to continue creating quality stories for you to get swept away into.

I’m an eclectic writer with books and works-in-progress in many genres. My goal as an author is to make each series distinctly different from the last, so if one of my series’ isn’t for you I’d encourage you to give the others a try! Thanks again for all you do, and I wish you the very best in all of your endeavors.

Happy reading!
Xoxo Christina

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Hope Restored (The Gallagher Brothers Book 3) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes with the final brother who thought he had everything to look forward to, and the one woman who can handle him.

Life isn’t worth living if you don’t fight to live. That’s what Murphy Gallagher learned at a young age when cancer ravaged his body not once, but twice. Over the course of his survival, he lost his parents and his childhood, but he’s been healthy for years and has become a man he hopes his family is proud of. But when his world tilts on its axis yet again, he’ll have to learn what it means to fight not only the unknown but also his attraction to his best friend.

Tessa Stone works hard and plays harder. She’s spent her life trying to figure out who she is in the present rather than looking back. Yet when she’s forced into close proximity with Murphy, she’ll have to not only be his rock but learn how to relax enough to maybe let him be hers, as well. But seduction doesn’t stop when the world seems to, and close encounters of the naked kind might just be the first step in something much more complicated than either of them bargained for. Life, though, is for living, after all.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

AHHHHHHH! The end of another of my favorite series by Carrie Ann Ryan!!!! The Gallagher’s started as a spin off of the Montgomery’s and became a phenomenon all their own and that phenomenon has come to a end with the youngest of the brothers, Murphy.
Murphy stole my heart when he first came on the scene in the first book of the series Passion Restored. He is the lead architect for the family business, he’s the Gallagher with the shortest beards but has the longest hair ( Hello!!!!! Who cares how short his beard is, it’s still a beard and that makes him yummy!!!!), and he has dealt with his own mortality as a child, more than anyone should. F**king cancer!!
Tessa is apart of the family being that she is his brother’s fiancée’s BFF. She knows how hot the youngest Gallagher is, he’s her flirting buddy when the group is together. She’s attracted to him but she’s determined to be his friend and just stay the aforementioned flirt buddy.
First let me say; Damn you Carrie Ann, I knew that that Murphy’s story was going to be a rough one I was expecting that. I was not however, expecting that surprise blast from the past!!!!!!
Secondly, she’s makes me ugly cry over bearded men waaaaaay to often!!! Lol!!!
I seriously do not want to say anything other than that because you have to read Murphy to appreciate him and Tessa and all the crazy feels that Ryan produces with this book. He will make you cry, together they will make you laugh, as a family The Gallagher’s will show you how strong a family is.
Thank you Carrie Ann Ryan for bringing another family to life with the Gallagher’s, Thank you for letting Murphy have his perfect story, and thank you for saying we’ll still see glimpses of them again in the Montgomery series.

My life is perfect.
I have it all—the woman of my fantasies and my shot at the championship.
It’s all right in front of me. In my grips. I can see it, taste it, feel it.
No chance in hell I’ll lose.

Doors open and others close—ones I’m not ready to see go.
My course changes. My dreams begin evading me.

You haven’t seen the depth of my perseverance yet.
This isn’t the end of me.
I AM NOT DONE.

One costly mistake, a defiant decision, and everything vanishes.
As he holds my hand through the darkness, he loses it all.

But his strength proves powerful. His determination unbreakable.
Together we’ll conquer.
Together we don’t accept defeat.

“Dreaming in Reality…You dream in reality when you pick up a book and get lost in it. In my writing, I strive to take you to a place where reality and fantasy become a blurry line. Everything should be relatable. It could happen…couldn’t it?” ~ TC Matson

TC Matson loves to let her character’s voices be heard. With a head full of stories, she puts her keyboard through a beating daily. With an understanding that love isn’t always instant and full of flowers—her writing mirrors it.

She’s a romance junkie at heart and an avid reader. Add those two together and she will devour books within hours, getting lost in the world the author creates.

Matson resides in the peaceful Piedmont area of NC with her husband and three boys, where staying hopped up on caffeine is the key to her sanity. Chaos is indefinite and a sense of humor is an absolute must.

#Review #Rockers Fatal Temptations (Fatal Cross Live! Book 2) by Theresa Hissong

My life has meaning again. I’m clean and sober, no longer relying on the poison to keep me going night after night as I perform for thousands. I have everything that I’d dreamed about for years; an amazing band, number one songs, money, and great friends. But there was one thing missing…a woman to call my own.

Presley Pittman is the lead singer for Witch’s Spawn and the opening band on our current tour. I find myself intrigued by the beautiful woman and whatever it is that haunts her. There is something mysterious about her that I can’t put my finger on. It isn’t until I notice a scar on her lip that I ask her about her past. I don’t think I could have ever prepared myself for the pain of her confessions.

She has to grow to be able to live and I’m thankful that she lets me be the man to walk beside her on the road to finding herself. When a possible setback in my own life threatens to restore my demons, I have to make the decision to stay strong so that I can be the man that Presley needs, because her own demons aren’t too far behind…threatening to destroy everything she’s ever known about her past.

 

What can I say about Ace and Presley? They are AWESOME! Presley has dealt with a lot of crap in her life and Ace has himself where he wants to be, clean and sober. Seeing his band Mate Taylor find love shows that that it can happen. Ace has been drawn to Presley since she and her band started the tour with them.
Presley has major trust issues outside of her band mates, which is totally understandable, but there is something about Ace that makes her want to add him to her trust circle and be with him.
The way these two connect is awesome, she has become the only addiction that he needs and he has become her rock, her safe port in the storm.
I love when Hissong writes any of her rocker books, she has a way of making you feel like you are there on the road with them.
I can’t wait to read more of the band!!

#Review #Rockers Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! Book 1) by Theresa Hissong

For years, I have worked behind the scenes for my cousin’s band, living my life as simply as possible. Running the inner workings of a rock band is the only thing I know to do. My only saving grace is a long vacation soaking up the sun in some exotic locations around the world between tours.
One steamy night on an island with Taylor Vaughn, the guitarist for the rock band Fatal Cross, and my world is turned upside down. When he doesn’t return my calls, I end up going through hell alone. Little do I know, he’s fighting his own personal demons.
When he fills in on my cousin’s tour for a few weeks, I am forced to work with the man who stole my heart months before on a private island. It isn’t easy being around him, but I am determined to keep my head low and pray this tour ends soon, but does anything ever go as planned?

Cora Maddox is tour manager and roadie extraordinaire for her cousin’s band Glory Days and has been since she was a kid.
She is tiny but mighty and no one knows how to get shit done for a band better than her. Her only problem now is Taylor Vaughn, guitarist for Fatal Cross Live. The little island fling they had while she was on vacation showed her how much she really liked him, but when she tried to contact him for months afterwards he wouldn’t take or return her calls and that showed her that he really was just looking for someone to warm his bed.
Taylor Vaughn, didn’t have a rough childhood his problems started when he and his band fell face first into the sex, drugs, and rock and roll life style. Yes, he was a man whore but something about little Coraline Maddox set him on fire. He knows he screwed the pooch when he never returned her calls but he had to get clean, be better so that when he next came to her he could beg his forgiveness and he could be the man she needed.
Now that they have to be together, because he’s filling in for Glory Day’s guitarist, she doesn’t know how she is going to face him but she knows that she isn’t going to let him know how bad he hurt her.
Man, Hissong is great at writing a rock story she really makes you feel like you are there. How she wrote about Taylor’s addiction problems and how he struggled to get clean and stay clean was awesome.
You can tell that Cora and Taylor feel for each other, even after the shit that they’ve been through. When they need each other the most though will they be able to stand strong or will they crash and burn? I’ll never tell!!!! Lol!!!
Check out Taylor, Cora, and the rest of the Fatal Desire crew to find out.

Killian’s Secret: Lone Wolf Defenders Book 1 is a paranormal romance novel with over 50k words. It’s a standalone novel with HEA, hot and sexy scenes, Lycan shifter action and no cheating.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Can you say SPIN OFF??!!!! Lone Wolf Defenders is a spin off of Alicia Montgomery’s Fated Mates series. We met Killian in the last book of the Fated Mate series Tempted by The Wolf. Killian one of three adopted brothers of Meredith from that book.
This series is about all the brothers and Killian being the first.
Killian is a lone wolf, a wolf with no family but his adopted family, no clan of his own. For those of you who don’t know Killian, his brothers, and Meredith were raised by a human who taught them skills to do several things, security, espionage, surveillance, protection, and if need be theft.
He and his brothers now work for Sebastian Creed and are running a branch of security called what else “Lone Wolf Security” and he and his brothers are being allowed to in New York because of this and because their sister is pledged to the New York Alpha.
Now that the scene is set, lets get down to business!!
4 months before his adopted father died Killian was on a job to steal back a lost tapestry for a country that was once war torn. While doing this job he met Luna. While originally he was just using her for the job he grew to really like her.
Things happened ( No I’m not telling you what, you gotta read the book!) and they were torn apart.
Now they are once again in the same city and a chance meeting has them together again.
Luna hates Killian after the way things happened between them, she also is still in love with him though she doesn’t what to be, and now she needs him to keep her safe. Killian has put Luna out of his mind but not out off his heart.
There are so many ups and downs in this book. Montgomery does a great job of keeping a reader on their toes!!!
These Lone Wolves could totally be alphas, that is how strong a lone wolf is.
Killian he has Luna best interest at heart, but totally thinks his way is the only way to get things done and she has no problem telling him how wrong he is.
After things are totally cleared up will they stay with each other? I’m not telling…………..
I will say this though, this new series is gonna be a good one these brothers are super yummy and and strong as heck.

#ThrowBack #Review #Paranormal #Shifter Big Bad Bite (Big Bad Bite Book 1) by Jessie Lane

The first book in the best-selling Big Bad Bite Series!

What would it be like to live in a world where you were considered abnormal even to those who were above the norm?

Jenna O’Conner is not human, nor is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community. It’s important she hide her true nature from both humans and Others.

Right after moving to a new city, Jenna runs into trouble in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. He’s an alpha werewolf determined to do two things: figure out exactly what Jenna is and have her all to himself.

As if that weren’t enough for Jenna to deal with, a group of extremist Shifters who consider humans to be cattle and who think that factions of Others should stay within their own species—never to intermingle—come to town. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, she discovers things about herself that even she had never thought were possible.
Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?
Welcome to the real world—the Other world.

Contains mature themes.

Ok, let me start off with I’ve never read any of Lane’s paranormal work before, just her military and MC, but I loved this! This series doesn’t just have shifters in it, but demons, vampires, and witches too. One Bad Bite is the first book in the Series of the same name. In this book we meet Jenna O’Conner, kickass new member of Wilmington’s SWAT team. With Jenna it’s a case of “looks can be deceiving” because her petite frame hides what’s really inside. She is a shifter, but no one outside of her mother and two uncles know, she’s been made to hide all her life because she is a hybrid and been told that the community of Others finding out would be a death sentence.
Jenna is written just like I like my heroines, tough! She is a girl who knows and goes after what she wants, which is a life. She knows she wants to be in law enforcement and does it, by assuring her mom and uncle that she will keep hidden. On Jenna’s first day she is sent out with her unit to handle a hostage situation, this is where she meets her partner Kent. At the situation she meets, Adam McPhee. Adam, hot, redheaded, motorcycle drivin’ Alpha wolf of North Carolina.
When Jenna finds out that Kent is a Demon, while they’re out after their shift and she takes off. She has been warned after all that any Other that finds out about her isn’t good. When she runs out of the bar who’s there? Adam, that’s who!! Kent tries to talk to her and tell her it’s ok, but she still runs and Adam chases. It’s during the chase that Adam discovers that she is a wolf!! This story has it all wolves, tigers, demons. Of course some of them are bad and the bad ones aren’t just bad; in my mind, they’re evil.
Adam and Jenna must work together, with her long lost family, to save another pack master. Along the way Jenna finds out not every Other wants hybrids dead. Adam finds out Jenna is no ordinary human-wolf hybrid, but a demon-wolf hybrid the only one on Earth. Together they find the piece that’s been missing in their life, each other.

#NewRelease #Review #Menage Tempted by Ecstasy (Calypso’s Choice Book 2) by Dakota Trace

Calypso’s agenda continues when a lovely widow contacts her…

Michelle Cross, or Shelli as her friends call her, is stuck in a rut. With all her kids off at college, this widowed mother splits her time between her charities, and lusting after men – well two men specifically: her late husband’s best friend, James, and her much younger gardener, Doyle. Desperate to resist temptation, she turns to an online dating, but fails horribly. It’s not until James suggests Club Ecstasy, that she decides to try one more time to exorcise the sexy pair from her every fantasy. Besides what could be better than Christmas in West Caicos?

 

After making his fortune in the dot-com era, reclusive boy-genuis, Doyle Garcia took up gardening and found his new calling. He loves to get his hands dirty, and the icing on his Tia Roselina’s cake? It also allows him to tempt the luscious Widow Cross into his bed. Unfortunately, he’s not the only one with eyes for her. While he’d been known to share fishing holes with James Redding, could he also share the luscious widow with his friend? Only time will tell when James approaches him with a plan to seduce Shelli – all it will take is a couple first class trips to Club Ecstasy, and keeping his hands off James. The first will be easy? But the second, not so much – because if he finds Shelli attractive, James is temptation incarnate. Too bad he doesn’t realize he’s about to get a little help from a goddess who swears that there are no lines when it comes to no holds barred sex and love.

Looking for a hot ménage book? Well look no further. Just make sure you have a towel ready to wipe the drool. LOL!!
This is the second book in the Club Ecstasy series book is about a different triad.
Club Ecstasy is a island getaway where Ms. Calypso makes fantasies of three way come true.
Shellie is secretly panting after her hot as heck lawn boy and her friend tells her she needs to get away if she isn’t going to go for it.
Little does she know that her lawn boy Doyle is panting after her just as hard and with James, the man she has leaned on since the death of her husband and her son’s godfather. Not only do the guys want Shellie but they want each other too!!!
Trace does a great job at bringing the hotness with this story as well as angst. There’s also the fact that Doyle and James got hooked up with Shellie at the Club with the help of her friend. They want a forever deal while she is determined that after they leave the club the triad ends.
Will Shellie be able to let go and be with both of them? Will the guys be able to tell each other how they feel about the other?
What happens is a story of a triad finding their way and trying to make a real go after the heat of vacation ends.

Hello, and welcome to my site. I’m Dakota, an author of erotic romance (think 50 Shades of Gray – but better) and paranormal erotica. And what exactly does that mean? Well, since I’ve always marched to the beat of different drum: it means that I get to take my unique life experiences – like putting around in the garage with my dad, or driving a train when I was ten, to create worlds where the heroines aren’t necessarily June Clever, but are strong independent women who may stand on their own two feet, but long to submit to the right man. Whether it’s two friends who realize there is more than friendship between them or the sexy alien who captures his unwilling slave’s heart, sparks fly between them. My imagination has no bounds or at least none I’ve found yet!

#ThrowBack #Contempary Passion Restored (Gallagher Brothers 2) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with the one brother who thinks he can handle it all and the one woman who could change that.

Owen Gallagher likes everything in its place and is organized to a fault. While his brothers have each dealt with their own personal tragedies and stresses, Owen figures he’s had it pretty easy. That is until his perfectly ordered world is rocked at its foundation and he’s forced to rely on others. Now, he must heal his body and his soul while trying to ignore his delectable and utterly off-limits neighbor.

Liz McKinley is stressed out, exhausted, and not in the mood for a bearded and growly man in her ER. When she patches him up to the best of his ability, she’s prepared to push him firmly from her thoughts. Of course, that would be easier if she and her best friend hadn’t bought the house next to his. Now their paths seem to cross daily, and she is finding it harder and harder to say no to the injured and angry man next door. But she’s been scarred one too many times in her life, and even though this Gallagher looks good enough to eat, she knows that sometimes, sating that craving is the worst thing she can do.

This is the second book in the spin-off of Montgomery Ink about the Gallagher Brothers.
Owen Gallagher- the organizer hottie of the Gallagher Brothers. He likes list, planners, order, and a fine woman.
Liz McKinley – overworked RN, brand new home owner, and wants nothing to do with men.
A chance meeting at a bar can change so many things.
The two meet with a hello and never think anymore about it. When Owen ends up in her hospital ER Liz wants nothing more than to help him get treated and move on, because once the hospital gossip knows that she knows him, it doesn’t matter how or that they briefly just met that evening, it’s fodder for the mill.
After Owen’s brother Graham and wife finally let him go back his house after him staying with them, all he wants to do is sleep in his own bed with his own pillow.
When his younger brother sees who his new neighbors are though, resting can wait because its none other than Liz and her best friend.
Fate keeps throwing these two together and I love it. While they both love their list and plans, they each have something that the other needs. He can show her that someone who truly loves you stays. She can show him that list and plans are great, but so is living in the moment.
As scared as it makes her Liz just can’t stay away from him. He makes her feel so much and when she feels too much and runs, he always gives her time to clear her head and then he gets back in there where he belongs.
Owen falls for her quickly and though he is busy with trying to get a big bid for the company, he always puts her first even when her running kills him.
Ryan once again does a great job writing about someone who has had a past trauma and learns to truly live when they feel safe and loved.
Gallagher’s are four brothers that would do anything for each other, we’ve seen that in Graham’s book Love Restored and in Jake’s book Ink Enduring. We see it again in Owen’s book when they help him show Liz what a family really is.
I can not wait to read Murphy’s book next, i think it well be a tear jerker.
