So yeah....I love Carrie Ann Ryan, I have loved the Montgomery Ink series and in turn the spin off The Gallagher Brothers but Passion Restored didn't hit the same mark that the others have.
I think a lot of my challenge comes with the fact that everything just happens so fast in Passion Restored. Moody man sees moody woman at bar, next thing you know moody man is suddenly in the hospital and guess what moody woman is his nurse. Moody man comes home from hospital and discovers moody woman is new neighbor. Moody woman comes over for a get together and moody man immediately finagles his way into her pants while moody mans family is just outside the door, two of them listening. I love the family dynamics in Carrie's books but the teasing of Owen in this one came across as crass and extremely embarrassing to the heroine. The Heroine Liz, she's got a lot going on but I struggled to like her, honestly I think you can only have so much moody in one book and her moody with Owen's moody just made me want to shake someone.
I felt like the storyline of why Owen ended up in the hospital fell flat, it was too easy, it was there just to get him into the hospital to see Liz again...but considering she turned out to be his next door neighbor in the end I am not sure it was necessary. The storyline with Liz's father never seemed to get fleshed out, and then the storyline with Liz's job just made me frustrated. She went through so much, she was treated horribly and yet her two antagonists end up getting what they want with absolutely no backlash or consequences in the end, even Liz's rightly deserved rant falls flat because absolutely noting comes of it. It felt like we had all these pieces that were supposed to make up another amazing Gallagher story and none of them were fulfilled, they were just pieces put in to make the story work and it worked, it just didn't feel complete.
There were things I loved, the steamy scenes between Owen and Liz....Carrie Ann Ryan knows how to write a swoon worthy sexy scene. The relationship between the brothers, the relationship between Liz and her best friend, the hard world that the characters put in, their ethics, their desire to live a truly happy and good life. I love the 'nerdiness' of Owen, his need to plan and organize, I can totally relate to him, I loved the that Owen was willing to be the pillar that Liz needed, that he didn't give up on her every single time (and it was a lot) that she ran. I love all these things, they are hallmarks of a Carrie Ann Ryan book and it wouldn't have been the same with out them. I just wish that the plot lines had felt more developed and that more came of them. Instead flowing through and creating the story they were just points to be made and gotten through so we could get to the end.
It's frustrating when an author you love falls short on one book in dozens, it's bound to happen when you have written as many as Carrie has, I just hate that it was a Gallagher Brother book, lol. This won't keep me away from her or this series and as always these are simply my feelings you may find this book to be completely different than I did and I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
Owen met a sassy yet vulnerable nurse who he couldn't get his mind off. Well fate had some plans for him, it turned out that the woman who haunted his thoughts was not only his nurse, she was also his new neighbor.
"What was a man to do!?"
Liz McKinley had enough of life always messing with her. When a bearded and growly man ended up in her ER, she didn't expect her world to be tilted on its axis. Cause she'd met him before, she was prepared to push him out of her mind but once again life was messing with her in a very ironic way. Liz found herself living right next to Owen Gallagher.
Even though Liz would love to find out how many wicked things Owen could do to her. It would be best if she stayed away from Owen cause she's been hurt countless times in the past. The only problem was that life was hellbent on throwing them in each other's paths.
"How does a woman keep her distance?"
The attraction between Owen and Liz kept on growing no matter how many times Liz tried to push Owen out of her mind. Owen laid all his cards on the table for Liz, he wanted her with a passion and he wasn't backing down.
Liz got scared when things started moving too fast but knowing her past and what she was facing at work was understandable. The friendship between her and her best-friend Tessa kind of reminded me of the relationship between my sister and I.
Owen's accident had the Gallaghers and the police sea searching for the driver and wondering if it was really an accident or was there more to what happened to Owen. Liz and Owen couldn't get enough of each other, no matter what.
Love the dynamic between the Gallagher brothers, their better halves and their sisters-in-law, those women could hold their own with the men like nobody's business. The Gallaghers being there for Owen when he got life changing news was beautiful.
PASSION RESTORED is the second book in Carrie Ann Ryan's GALLAGHER BROTHERS series. It was smoking hot, intriguing, alluring and a must read. Love the Gallagher brothers, so happy to see them getting their HEAs one by one. Carrie Ann Ryan one again did an exquisite job! 5++++
P. S. Love the dedication by Carrie Ann Ryan ;)
****ARC given in exchange for an honest review.****
There are many twists and turns along the way, and I wanted to yell at Liz many times to just give love a chance. These two are so great for each other and I love how the rest of the family comes in to support them, even though they drive them crazy sometimes.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Liz is a nurse who works really hard in the ER. One night when she goes to pick up her friend at a bar, she comes across a very good-looking man. His name is Owen Gallagher. She can't believe her eyes when during her hospital shift, she sees her patient that is going into emergency surgery...Owen.
This story was very good, but I could not give it five stars because of errors. This also happened in book one and it's a shame because they do deserve five stars but not with the correct errors. Someone should proofread these before they are published because I know readers really don't want to see errors when they're paying for a book.
