Publisher: Carrie Ann Ryan, 2/28/17
Genre: Romance, Mystery/Suspense
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.
LOVED this book! Owen is a pretty wonderful guy who is a bit OCD, but that just makes him more endearing. He's a wonderful brother and uncle who cares for those around him and wants nothing more than to see his family's business succeed. The Gallagher brothers work hard and play harder, but not too hard. They have a reputation to keep up and a business to run, so there isn't a lot of time to take a moment for themselves. BUT...they are all learning.
Liz is strong, independent to a fault, and stubborn. She is sassy. She is smart. She's the perfect woman all wrapped up in a nurse's uniform and will challenge Owen at every turn. He feels an attraction to her immediately upon seeing her at a bar and she feels the same when he enters her ER, but she is stronger than he is and decides he is not worth losing her job over. Tempting as he is, she makes a decision and sticks with it.
Then they learn they are neighbors and the sparks fly. With Owen recovering from a freak accident.... he could be the perfect patient or the bane of Liz's existence. The odds are good either way. Everyone else sees the attraction between the two of them, but Liz isn't admitting to it and Owen has no idea how to break through the solid wall she's built around her heart.
When she caves and gives into the attraction she's been fighting, they do it right and discover they are both pros at dirty talk. This was a kick to read. They are playful, loving, and HOT between the sheets. When this translates outside the bedroom, no one is more surprised than Liz, but she throws up roadblocks when he gets too close. Owen is not deterred and learning about her past only makes him love her more. The twist in the story line is great and I didn't see it coming. Well done!
