Product Description

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.

Strength of will and character help Murphy win his personal war. Tessa has her own demons to slay. This story was on emotional journey through situations dealt with in families in every walk of life. So well written with compassion and understanding, sometimes read through tears. Great story.

Hope restored by Carrie Ann Ryan is absolutely amazing and great ending to the Gallagher brothers trilogy. Murphy was just as sweet and flirty as I was hoping for and tessa truly is his perfect match, her sass and wit plus hard work and dedication make her someone I want to be when I grow up. This pair scorch up the page and the sheets. Carrie Ann Ryan's dedication to her craft really shines through in this story, and since becoming a fan a few years ago she keeps getting better and better with her storytelling. 10/10 would definitely recommend for anyone, even if you haven't read a word of her before, all the Gallagher brothers books are standalone as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just when you think all is lost... 26 July 2017
By Elizabeth E Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
**Disclaimer: I highly recommend reading this trilogy in order as we, of course, meet Murphy in the first book, Love Restored, and Tessa in book two, Passion Restored.**

Murphy has literally fought for his life...twice. He beat cancer, though he lost his childhood, as well as his parents, both he blames on his illness. Thankfully, his health is greatly improved, his brothers have found love, and his flirty banter filled friendship with Tessa is great.

Tessa has perfected the art of looking forward, not back. It's called self-preservation. She has a good job, her best friend and roommate, Liz, has fallen in love and is expecting, and Tessa has grown very close, with Murphy, Liz's fiance, Owen's brother. Plus, they're the only singles left and both prefer it that way.

As Tessa spends a lot of time at Owen's, being friends with Liz and their neighbor, Murphy sees her quite often, and though he knows their roles are established as friends, he can't help his body's instinctual reaction to her. They do flirt, both pretending it's innocent, but neither has crossed that line...yet.

"Like the fact that she was sort of dating a guy that wasn't him." - Murphy

However, focusing on something else quickly becomes urgent, and devastating, as Tessa notices injuries on Murphy that shouldn't be there. Unfortunately, Murphy instantly, regretfully, knows what it means, especially as he adds up other instances from the past few weeks...and the third time is not a charm.

As if Murphy isn't dealing with enough right now, the hits keep coming as his landlord is moving, therefore, Murphy needs to find a new place within two weeks.

Ironically enough, okay, it's weird, Tessa's whatever he is, offers up a solution when Murphy stops to see her for advice upon discovering Owen and Liz aren't home. Tessa will have to tighten her budget now that she's paying the mortgage by herself, and Murphy needs a new residence, which happens to be next door to one of his older brothers...man, Brent really is a nice guy, dang it.

As Murphy and Tessa adjust, quite easily, to being roommates, Murphy also begins his treatments. Tessa, on the other hand, has decided relationships aren't for her, even with a nice guy, as evidenced by Brent dumping her, something she's actually relieved about.

As the days go by, Murphy and Tessa start growing closer, and their connection changes more by the day. When both are brought face to face with their pasts, the reunions aren't all cause for happiness though, and have different impacts on their future. One of those being a reminder that life can, unfortunately, be short, and if you find someone, that makes you happy, you need to take that chance. Murphy takes that to heart, literally, and he and Tessa both realize they need to, want to, explore what's between them as they know it already is something special.

"Just you and me, baby. That's all we need." - Murphy

Murphy and Tessa realize they're falling for one another, and embrace it, however, not everyone is happy for them, as evidenced by the little incidents that begin occurring, culminating in a situation neither saw coming.

Will Murphy triumph once again? Will the family be supportive of Murphy and Tessa's relationship? Will Murphy's illness be something they can overcome together? How will Tessa react when she witnesses the reality of the danger Murphy is facing? Will she and Murphy grow stronger because of it? Who is behind the things happening to the couple? Will Murphy, already fighting for his life, have to fight for Tessa's too? Is there a HEA for them?

One-click now and follow along as two friends finally succumb to their mutual attraction and discover an everlasting love. I'm so thankful we're given a glimpse into what the future holds for the Gallaghers and their spouses, including Jake who found his happiness in the Montgomery Ink series with Border and Maya.

On a purely personal note, I find it icky that Murphy's now sister-in-law, Blake, unsure if she was so when it was done, pierced a certain lower part of Murphy. Eww. Yes, I know it was completely professional, but I would not want another woman, especially one that was now related to my man, to have seen such a private area on the love of my life.

Murphy Gallagher, the youngest of the Gallagher siblings learned at an early age that life wasn't easy. He went through Cancer twice and survived, he lost his parents and his childhood but through it all he had his brothers Jake (INK ENDURING), Graham (LOVE RESTORED) & Owen (PASSION RESTORED).

He'd been cancer free for years and hoped he'd become the man he family would be proud of. He was an architect in the family's construction and restoration company. Yet he found himself facing the unknown when he got sick again. Murphy knew how short life was and he was ready to fight for what he wanted, come what may.

Tessa Stone whom we met in Passion Restored was best-friend's with Murphy's sister-in-law, Liz. She worked as an administrator at the hospital. She was a hard working woman who played just as hard. Tessa lived in the present instead of looking back at the past. She became friends with Murphy Gallagher.

When he fell sick again, she feared she wouldn't know what to do if she ever lost him. Murphy's life was turned upside down in a spare of few days, he found himself moving in with the woman who'd been haunting his dreams for a while. Because of some unforeseen circumstances.

As they spend more time together, Murphy's feelings for Tessa changed from friendship to something more and vice versa. The change in their relationship scared her a little which was understandable but Murph made sure she knew she was loved and cherished.

Tessa's past came back to destroy her life in the form of an abused ex-boyfriend. What the man didn't expect was for her to have someone in her life who were ready to defend and protect her from him.

Loved the bond between Murphy and his niece Rowan. Not to mention the dynamic between the Gallagher brothers. There was nothing more important to them than their loved ones. To see them found LOVE after so many heartaches was alluring.

The unexpected twists and turns in the book was well done. Murph meeting up with an old friend and reestablishing a relationship with him felt like life came full circle.

HOPE RESTORED was breathtaking, heartwarming, funny and intriguing. It's the third and finale book in Carrie Ann Ryan's GALLAGHER BROTHERS series. Loved this series from the first book and to see it end the way it did was a delightful treat.

Carrie Ann Ryan never cease to amaze me with her talent. She brought us such incredible and flawed characters that stole my heart away. 5++++

AHHHHHHH! The end of another of my favorite series by Carrie Ann Ryan!!!! The Gallagher’s started as a spin off of the Montgomery’s and became a phenomenon all their own and that phenomenon has come to a end with the youngest of the brothers, Murphy.
Murphy stole my heart when he first came on the scene in the first book of the series Passion Restored. He is the lead architect for the family business, he’s the Gallagher with the shortest beards but has the longest hair ( Hello!!!!! Who cares how short his beard is, it’s still a beard and that makes him yummy!!!!), and he has dealt with his own mortality as a child, more than anyone should. Stupid cancer!!
Tessa is apart of the family being that she is his brother's fiancée’s BFF. She knows how hot the youngest Gallagher is, he’s her flirting buddy when the group is together. She’s attracted to him but she’s determined to be his friend and just stay the aforementioned flirt buddy.
First let me say; Damn you Carrie Ann, I knew that that Murphy’s story was going to be a rough one I was expecting that. I was not however, expecting that surprise blast from the past!!!!!!
Secondly, she’s makes me ugly cry over bearded men waaaaaay to often!!! Lol!!!
I seriously do not want to say anything other than that because you have to read Murphy to appreciate him and Tessa and all the crazy feels that Ryan produces with this book. He will make you cry, together they will make you laugh, as a family The Gallagher’s will show you how strong a family is.
Thank you Carrie Ann Ryan for bringing another family to life with the Gallagher’s, Thank you for letting Murphy have his perfect story, and thank you for saying we’ll still see glimpses of them again in the Montgomery series.

It's so hard to believe that this is the last book in the Gallagher Brothers series. But never fear we know our author, she will for sure let us peek into their lives in one of her other books some time in the future. The Montgomery Clan reaches far and wide (even if their last name is something else). Carrie Ann Ryan has created this family that each one of us can feel a part of. I know I do.

This last book in the Gallagher Brothers series has to be my favorite for so many reasons. Oh please do not let the other ones know, sort of like saying one of your children are your favorites. I love all of her books but this book just shines a little bit brighter. This book is about love, friendship and life. True love and true friendship...the kind that lasts thru cancer and the real kind. This is Murphy and Tessa's story but is also Gallagher Family's story and all their friend's as well.

As a reader, this book reach down and grabbed me from the very beginning. It had me in tears in parts but laughing in others. Don't get me wrong this is not a sad, woo is me book ..OH NO... this book is inspiring and a beautiful romance. All I can say is I recommend it and that is all you are getting out of me because I don't give storylines away. LOL
If you want to really enjoy this book I highly recommend the other books in this series...Or go all out and read all the Montgomery books.

Murphy is my favorite Gallagher... There, I said it. This book. Oh my heart! It is my favorite Carrie Ann Ryan book to date. How she was able to imbue so much anguish, and hope, and love, and hotness in to one package is beyond me. Hope Restored has solidified her place as a must read author for me - in fact, now I'm certain that I need to have all of her books in hard copies on my shelves, because she deserves my $. I don't think the book warrants a trigger warning, but keep a box of tissues handy, especially if cancer has touched your life. This book tells the story of two damaged people finding love, the strong bonds of family (blood and those we choose), and HOPE in a way that only Carrie Ann Ryan can pen. 5 out of 5 wine glasses, no question (though I sort of want to take a quarter of a point off because it's the last of the Gallagher's).
