Falling for Owen by Jennifer Ryan



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.

Overall Rating:   4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Falling for Owen by Jennifer Ryan is a delightful contemporary romance story about finding your true love and stopping at nothing to hold on to it.  The author establishes the characters’ needs, desires, fears and longings to create a well written, tingling in your toes feeling. 

“You make everything in my life shine.”

Growing up as the town’s troublemaker, Owen McBride is now a changed man.  He works hard as an attorney for all his clients.  He loves and adores his nieces.  He is a beautiful man inside and out.  Claire Walsh is new in town.  She’s opened a coffee shop and is looking for a new beginning.  Having been hurt in the past, she is slow to trust her growing feelings for Owen. 

“No.  You’re convinced I’m lying just because I’m talking.  Take your ex-colored glasses off and see me…I’m not him.”

I enjoyed the development in their relationship.  The couple’s bond grew from lustful thoughts and initial attraction to feelings of protection and strong cravings of love for each other. 

“Nothing had ever felt like this.  No one made her feel quite like this.  Free.  Loved.  Special.  Beautiful.”

“…I’ll love you every day for the rest of your life and mine.”

There was drama caused by an obsessed client; allowing the suspense to build, keeping me interested, and turning the pages quickly.   I was also extremely pleased that the couple got their HEA.  Overall, I was fascinated with the story and I highly recommend you give it a try!
