Hope Restored - Carrie Ann Ryan - Blog Tour

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.

Hope Restored is the third and final title in the Gallaghers Brothers series.  Murphy's story is an incredibly well written, intense, moving and emotion filled read. 

This pair of characters are endearing, believable, and very relate-able.  They both have demons from their past and they are both survivors, particularly Murphy who has battled cancer twice and come out the other side.  Ms Ryan has created two very complex yet well developed characters, who I felt a real connection with.  The sexual tension and chemistry between this pair is undeniable, and the love scenes are both hot and sweet. 

Hope Restored is a story of living life to the fullest, and not being held back by regrets, recriminations or being defined by choices or actions made in the past.  I think anyone who has been affected by cancer will form a deep connection with this friends to lovers story and be prepared as it packs an emotional punch.  Of the three books in this series, I would say that this one was my favorite and hope the Gallaghers continue to make cameo appearances in future titles.
