#Book #Review *Falling for Owen* ( #BookReview )


Blurb
The McBrides of Fallbrook return with reformed bad boy Owen. He'll do whatever he must to protect the woman who's captured his heart. Attorney by day, rancher by night Owen McBride conquered his dark past and made it his mission to help the innocent—even at the expense of a personal life. But when a client's abusive ex-husband targets Owen and his gorgeous neighbor Claire gets caught in the crossfire, his feelings turn anything but professional. The mysterious beauty awakens something in him, and he'll move heaven and earth to keep her safe.
Coffee shop owner Claire Walsh learned the hard way that handsome men aren't to be trusted. Owen may be sexy as hell and determined to take care of her, but she's reluctant to put her heart on the line. His presence in her life puts a target on her back, yet the more time she spends with him, the more she finds she can't help falling for Owen.

My Review:
When I started this book, I honestly wasn't certain if I was going to like it. Sometimes the women that are afraid to trust men go overboard and actually grate my nerves.
We meet Claire in one of the strangest ways (which I really enjoyed and don't want to spoil the story by giving it way). So many actions and themes are over used - after all, there's only so many ways to write a book - but for me, this was totally original and I loved it.
Owen seems to try almost too hard, at times...almost pushy. But there's something about him that easily redeems him. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about him being lawyer and the "stalker" client, but it worked well once I managed to top over thinking it.
One of my favorite lines has to do with Owen telling Claire to give him a dollar - curious?
Well, this is an absolute must read. This was a first or me by Jennifer Ryan and I'll be picking up more.
