Publisher's Summary

The Gallagher Brothers series from New York Times best-selling 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.

Perfect ending to the series

Murphy and Tessa are the perfect ending for the series. I have to admit they are my favorite couple in this series. Love Gregory Salinas's voice. He embodies the Montgomerys.

Wonderful story of Hope

This was a wonderful book! I have not read the others and this has peaked my interest into the rest of this family. Murphy is a great endearing character. His situation touched me. Tessa is wild and strong and sassy. I love reading characters like her. I’m not gonna lie...I was surprised these two were able to “get” together. I figured he would be to weak and tired to get into the mischief he does with Tessa. I did listen to this on audio. Gregory Salinas did a great job and has a lovely voice to listen to.

Flirting friends to roommates to lovers!

This book spans a seemingly short amount time but the two friends decide to act on their attraction to one another after a naked mishap. This book does deal with Murphy fighting cancer and all the thoughts he struggles with during his battle. Having lost a parent after a long battle with cancer, it was thought provoking to hear Murphy's mental struggles making me wish I had considered those types of feelings during my father's battle. The bit of suspense and drama with a stalkerish ex played a backseat to the main love story but it gave the book the little extra something it needed.

Note: I didn't listen to the previous books in the series but there is enough background into the other characters given that I felt this book stood on its own.

My only real gripe about this book was that the cover model didn't reflect the description of Murphy at all in my opinion.

Gregory Salinas did an excellent job narrating and I will certainly look for more books narrated by him in the future.

I received a free audible code through a Facebook group giveaway and am providing my honest review voluntarily.

Life really is for the living

It is no secret that I’m a Carrie Ann Ryan fan. I own every book she’s written. I was especially touched by Murphy and Tessa’s story. This truly is a story about overcoming the past and the residual fear that remains so that you can embrace the present and the future. These characters each have their strengths and weaknesses, as all human beings do. Carrie Ann brings a realistic view of what is like to have to face a foe that you thought you had already beaten. I would recommend this book as well as any of her others.

Their new circumstances make not only grow their attraction by the second, but also realize that every day that passes it's not coming back. Will they act on their feelings?

Loved Murphy and Tessa

I think Murphy is my favorite Gallagher brother. Seeing glimpses of him in the previous books was nice but to get to know him was awesome. He is such a sweet guy that has had life try to push him down. No matter what he pushes through and loves his family. I also loved Tessa. In the previous book you only saw her as the girl who went out and had to be dragged home by her friend but now you get to see the real her. The flirting between her and Murphy was great but when they both realize there may be more to gain then loose if they are together it is great. Friendship is the best place to start a relationship and that is what they do. I liked that it didn't shy away from what was going on in Murphys life and how Tessa was able to help him to get through a tough time. Loved this sorry there are no more brothers but look forward to the next story from Carrie Ann.

I truly enjoyed the narrator on this book. I have listened to a few others and have found that I like the male readers more then the females though it would be nice to have both on a book:) loved the story and reader would definitely recommend

Wow! I think my speakers are still steaming!

I hadn't read any of this series yet, but Murphy & Tessa pulled me right in. This is a well-crafted story read by a talented male narrator. I haven't found many male narrators that can keep my interest, but this one did.

I can't wait to read more about the Gallaghers!

Wonderful

This was a very moving story of a true survivor I found it very interesting to see the progression of friends to lovers in such difficult circumstances and I loved that the previous characters came back for cameos as well.

I Enjoyed it

Hope Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan is the 3rd book in the Gallagher Brothers series and was Murphy and Tessa's story. This friends to lovers novel was sweet, steamy and a bit emotional and it will evoke a range of emotions from you. I loved seeing the progression of Murphy and Tessa's relationship from friends to so much more. The story shows us the strength of the characters as well as their vulnerability and made this tale so much more relatable. I enjoyed this novel and would highly recommend it to all lovers of friends to lovers romance.
The audible version was narrated by Gregory Salinas who was a new to me narrator. He did an excellent job with the story and brought the characters to life. He had good pace and timing and I enjoyed listening to him narrate this novel.
