"The finale to the Treading Water trilogy was an enchanting lesson in ensuring a low point in your life doesn't define the person you become. It is wonderfully written with characters that envelope you in their world. This book is an excellent ending to a series of books that truly pulled at my heartstrings." ―Night Owl Reviews, A Reviewer Top Pick

Brandon O'Malley has spent the better part of the last 10 years in the bottom part of a bottle. He hits rock bottom when he makes unwanted advances on his brother's girlfriend Claire. This forces his life in a new direction. This incredible story is how he puts his life back together. It is filled with hope, fear, love and happiness. There are twists and turns that kept me burning through the pages. Marie has a way of making you fall completely in love with her characters. I laughed, I cried and I felt every emotion imaginable.
PS - Holly Fielding is amazing at performing this story for the audio version. Her talents combined with Marie's story makes for an incredible experience.
I can honestly say that Brandon stole my heart in this book and I think might hold onto it for a while. I tend to be a woman who always went after the man who needed to be "saved". So in Starting Over I found myself feeling so bad for Valerie, Brandon's ex, who put so much of herself into the relationship with a man who was lost. The book starts out with a lot of heavy baggage and as the book goes on, we are able to join Brandon on his road to recovery, shedding the pain and resentment along the way.
I wanted so bad for Brandon to find his HEA, to find someone who would accept him fully, as is, and Daphne was just the person for the job, even tho she tried her hardest to stay away. But when your five year old daughter falls for a man who looks like him...ummm yummy, how can your defenses not be lowered.
Marie Force created an amazing story with Starting Over that gives us hope that no one is ever lost, they just need someone to care enough to find them.
I loved the way the epilogue was written and how far along in the future it was. Yet, it was perfect for this story. I also really enjoyed how the relationships of the other characters were followed, how the author linked them to the other books while still making this book mainly about Brandon.
Kudos to the author for such a heartwarming and truly moving and accurate novel. A great addition to this series.
This book is more than a love story- more than that, I loved watching Brandon in his recovery, making his amends, and truly learning so much. I loved Colin and how he understood that alcoholism is a family disease and that it affected everyone.
The rest of the O'Malleys are what you would expect from a large, Irish Catholic family! I loved them!
His father gives him a restoration job at some apartments that he owns so he can take his time getting back on his feet. He also needs time to show everyone that he can be trusted again especially the workers at O'Malley and Sons. Brandon has a very loving and supportive family and we really get to know all of the O'Malley's in this book. Let me warn you, your going to fall in love with them.
But in this story who would have guessed that a fabulous five year old would immediately steal Brandon's heart (and mine)and teach him how to love. See Daphne and her daughter Mike live in one of the apartments and they have some problems that need to be address as soon as he takes the job. They also have a secret of their own. Which really brought some excitement to the story that I wasn't expecting. Mike and Daphne really help Brandon become the man he was meant to be.
The Best part of this book was the epilogue and I have to admit that this was one of the best I've read. You will need to have a box of tissues next to you when you read this epilogue because its going to grab your heart......Very Best.
