Book Description

When Laney Murphy walks into Muldoon’s Pub in San Francisco, she has no idea that her life is about to change forever. The Muldoon family’s offer of a job and a place to stay seems just too good to be true. And once she meets Sean Muldoon, the suspicious and distrustful son of the pub owners, she knows she was right - he clearly detests her.

Sean is on the fast track as a bodyguard with Woo Security and he isn’t going to allow some grifter to get in his way or to mess with his family. But he soon discovers that Laney is not all sharp tongue and sarcasm, and he finds himself wanting to kiss her more than deck her.

But Laney’s past comes back to haunt her and she soon must put her life on the line to save Sean and the family she has come to love.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected December 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
While I did enjoy this book to a degree, and even liked it, it wasn't what I expected it to be.

My main problem with it that it was all over the place. It started out as one thing, switched somewhere in the middle to another, and ended as something completely different than these two things. Oh, it did have a thrill and I did want to know what happens, but it was like it wasn't planned out at all.

I did love Laney's character. She's pretty kickass, but I guess having lived on the streets she had to be. And she is pretty consistent with the way she acts.
And I liked Sean, too, at least I liked the things we were shown about him.

Here's the deal, though - the romance takes the very back stage in this book. Normally I'm not bothered by lack of romance, but this book is marketed as a romance and there's a couple almost-kissing in the cover. The blurb sure implies it's romance. So naturally, I expected more of it. Sometimes I felt like scenes were missing to make me feel the the full extent of chemistry between Sean and Laney.
For those who like to know these things, there is no sexual content, it's all fade to black.

The book is on the short side, but a lot happens too fast. I'm guessing that's another reason that I felt like scenes were cut out - every once in a while I would think that I missed something earlier in the book when in reality it wasn't even written.

I had to stop somewhere in the first half to take a break from it because things were starting to make less and less sense. But like I said, overall I did like it, and I'd say give it a chance - maybe it's just not my kind of thing. It's entertaining but it's not brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Intrigue than Romance January 21, 2013
By Pamela
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this novel as it turned out to be quite different than I thought it would be. I was expecting the protagonist, Laney, to be a regular girl who just made goo-goo eyes at Sean the entire time, always having to be rescued. Instead, Laney turns out to be one tough lady; she would have to be considering her upbringing. Along with her being tough and smart, she's quite the kick-ass chick and I must say that I enjoyed some of those scenes. I did like the story of how far she had come from when we're first introduced to her, her romance with Sean, her work with Woo security, and more interestingly, her connection with Tommy. It was definitely a whole learning experience for her and us as we follow her thru her journey of self-discovery.

Regardless of how great Laney and Sean were together, I didn't think there was enough romance going on between the two. More written about them and their relationship would have been great. Except for a few scenes where they're making out, there's not much else. So if you're looking to read some delicious sex romps between the two, you'll be quite disappointed as it's very tame and barely touched upon.

As much as I liked Laney's character, there were times I just wished she would give her mouth a rest. It's one thing to be strong and tough, but it's another to just keep running off at the mouth. Sure she's got a sharp tongue, but she's constantly yelling, shouting at everyone else about what she will or will not put up with. Instead of being looked upon as irritating and bitchy, she's perceived as this strong, sexy, no holds-barred woman with every man being turned on with hopes of dating her. This type of female characteristic has always confused and maddened me.

Galen Rose - A Place To Rest My Heart {Reviewed by Chris @ Hearts On Fire Reviews}

This book is a great story. We first meet Laney as she enters San Francisco its cold, dreary and she has no where to even lay her head and knows no one in this town. She flags down a cab and little does she know at that time but destiny awaits her in the form of Muldoon's Pub.

Laney passes out after eating some of the best food she's ever had. She has had a rough start in life as we find out during the book. I won't give away too much but she's lost pretty much everything she could have lost and was abused to boot.

This story is very detailed and read much like a diary. It kept me turning the pages quickly and happily. There is action and adventure and drama. We deal with issues of child abuse and female abuse. And it is all done in such a manner to keep you not only interested but curious as to what is going to happen next.

The adventures that Laney, Sean, Mason, Chase and Mike get into are dramatic and exciting. This is well worth the time it takes to read this book. You will enjoy the story and the excitement will keep you reading.

What I loved is that this contemporary romance was written in first person point of view. You are actually in Laney's head; her troubles, her anger, her fear, and her I most certainly am not going to fall for Sean Muldoon, or any other gorgeous male because to do so will only lead to more pain mind set. I felt as if I knew Laney and through her all her co-workers.

Galen Rose did a fabulous job on character creation and setting the stage for all the action and adventure and mishaps.
