Review Post: Hope Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan: A Gallagher Brothers Novel


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.

Rating: ☕☕☕☕ (4 cups!)

The final book in the Gallagher Brothers series, Hope Restored, centers around two characters that have been at the periphery of previous books in the series, Murphy and Tessa.  Murphy is the youngest Gallagher and the one who went through a lot of health challenges since he was young while Tessa is the BFF of Liz (Love Restored).  These two have been flirting around since the second book and they finally get to seal the deal in this one.  Although centering around a heavy theme regarding Murphy's health, it nevertheless doesn't skimp on the romance and yes the very erotic scenes between Tessa and Murphy. They definitely won't let anything get in the way of  them being together.  Hope Restored is definitely one friends to lovers story that is heartwarming, sexy and definitely high on the romance.  A fitting farewell to this wonderful and resilient family.
