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.

Oh my! Who knew what was hiding behind those button down shirts and planners! I am quickly falling in love with the Gallaghers. First there was Graham and now its Owen’s turn to charm his way into my heart. And he did it pretty quickly. Passion Restored was heartwarming, sexy and sweet with just a smidge of mystery thrown in to keep things spicy.
Liz is guarded, sassy and independent. She doesn’t do relationships and right now is really not a good time to be getting into one. Owen is nerdy, tattooed and a little OCD. I seriously wanted to pick him up and squeeze him and hug him. His gruffness was cute. The two of them had some serious chemistry. Ryan certainly knows how to write some hot scenes. A cold shower may be necessary afterwards. Both of the characters were pretty developed. I wish Owen’s insecurities about doing enough for the company had been delved into a little more but alas it didn't happen. Of course where one Gallagher is, the others follow. The family dynamic of this group is great. Seeing them interact always makes me grin.
Despite all the opportunities for drama, there is little drama here outside of Liz’s fighting the relationship, definitely no angst. It is relatively fast paced. A few plot lines were brought up but then just brushed over like Owen’s hit and run. I wish they had been more developed but that’s just me. It ended up making for a light and easy read. I still absolutely adore Ryan and I cannot wait for Murphy’s book. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
