    3. 3.5 starsI enjoyed this story and it was a really good beginning to a new series. This story featured one of my favorite tropes: Enemies to Friends. And this one didn’t disappoint as we got the classic push and pull distinctive of love-hate relationships. Blake Brennen has grown up from that silver spoon heiress that many people remembered. She has returned home a mature woman who knows the value of hard work. When she hires the Gallagher Brothers to restore her new home, Blake immediately cla [...]

    4. The heroes have a second chance to love in the midst of family drama and a lot of doubts and fears. I liked the story and recommend!

    5. woah. Just woah. I started this one this morning after the girls left for school, read almost non stop during the day and thanked the stars that tonight's football game is an away game and I didn't have to go so I could finish reading this :) This was hot and just a tad bit angsty, yet sweet and loving and it was just all things perfect for me. I loved Graham and Blake, and their pasts made my heart go out to them. I wanted to just hug them! They both had a bit of a short temper, but I got it. I [...]

    6. Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.Blake Brennen may have been born a trus [...]

    7. Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews3.5 starsLove Restored is the first book in author Carrie Ann Ryan's Montgomery Ink spin-off series The Gallagher Brothers and I liked this book, but I didn't love it. This book was a little too high on angst and while there was no doubting the attraction between the two main characters, I needed more time with them outside of their sexy times to feel the love building between them. The first book in a new series is always a little tough beca [...]

    8. We met these two characters in the Montgomery Ink series. Graham is brother to Jake who is with Maya Montgomery. Blake works for Maya at the tattoo shop she and her brother own. Just meeting the as secondary characters had my mind spinning and yes, thank you Carrie Ann, for bringing us a whole new hot set of alpha men and women to love!Graham and Blake both have some deep secrets they would like to keep hidden. Unfortunately, they keep running into each other and seem destined to have to share t [...]

    9. Not my favorite book by Ms. Ryan, but fans of the Montgomery Ink series will enjoy this spinoff. Graham Gallagher is pissed that someone let the beautiful old house he and his brothers are restoring go to shit, and the only person he can blame is the heiress giving him attitude, Blake Brennen. As owners of Gallagher Brothers Restoration, Graham and his brothers Owen and Murphy have been hired to bring the historic home up to standards, but working with this wealthy princess is not going to be ea [...]

    10. Fantastico! Hot Alpha male, sexy sassy female, both have heart breaking secrets to tell but there is no denying their connection. I seriously cried when, Graham told Blake his story sad. This is a spin off series and the first of 3?!? Maybe. Great thus far.

    11. Loved Graham and Blake's story and how completely different she was from what he first thought of her. Life is not always what it seems on the outside, Blake's had it rough getting to where she is now, especially when she has a little one she needs to take care of and keep away from prying eyes. Their lives mingle unexpectedly but the outcome is a definite plus!

    12. Loved it! Hot, tatted, grumpy badass with a big heart! Secrets, pain and best of all a love that heals it all. Family. HEA. One for the TBR list!

    13. I tried! I wanted to like it. But at 80 percent I had to stop. another unrealistic thing happened. so stupid.

    14. Only read this because I thought this was an interracial romance. I got that one wrong. It was okay but not my cuppa. Not a fan of tatted dudes with piercings and gnarly beards.

    15. Beard lovers unite!Tattooed, pierced and bearded Graham Gallagher is my type of book boyfriend. He’s a little grumpy and gruff but he loves with his whole heart. Our heroine, Blake Brennen, is also tattooed and pierced. Blank is just trying to make things work as someone who has a whole lot on her plate. When these two meet they have an almost immediate dislike of one another. However, with a little forced proximity and some deep dives into their history, Blake and Graham proved that overcomin [...]

    16. 4,5 starsLOVE RESTORED is the first book in the Gallagher Brothers series (or is it going to be a trilogy?), a spin-off of Ryan's Montgomery Ink series. We met all 4 Gallagher brothers in the most recent Montgomery Ink story, INK ENDURING, that told the story of Maya Montgomery, Border and Jake Gallagher. In that book we got some of the brothers' back story but as it turns out, that was just the tip of the iceberg. Graham is up first in this first spin-off book and his story broke my heart early [...]

    17. I thought the Montgomery's were the best fictional family ever! Enter the Gallaghers and I am certain they will rival the Montgomery's! Graham is damaged by a past that he isn't certain he can get over. While Blake is trying to put her past firmly behind her once and for all. They each have had things happen that defined who they are now. Blake is working at Montgomery Ink as a piercer who hires the Gallaghers to restore her family home so she can get rid of it. From the moment they meet they di [...]

    18. 4.5 Finding and Believing in Love Again StarsReviewed by Franci NeillI'm so in love with this new spin-off series by Ms. Ryan. Graham Gallagher is so broody and alpha. He helps run a restoration business with his brothers and doesn't have the time for Blake Brennan and what he thinks is her entitled attitude. If he only knew what she was really about!!Blake has been left this amazing mansion that's been in her family forever. Unfortunately, it's in a state of despair and this where we meet the G [...]

    19. I am such a huge fan of Carrie Ann Ryan's Montgomery Ink series, so was very excited for Love Restored, the first book in her new spin-off series, about the Gallagher Brothers. Blake works at Montgomery Ink. She tends to keep people (especially men she is interested in) at arm's length because of the scars life has left on her. After inheriting a gorgeous mansion in serious disrepair, she hires the Gallagher Brothers to her fix it up. When she meets Graham there is an immediate attraction and sp [...]

    20. ARC REVIEW So Carrie Ann Ryan sent out Postcards for this book like she does with just about all of them signed with a little catch phrase, this book's being " Grab a Gallagher". Well I definitely want to grab a Gallagher! The Gallaghers were introduced in the last book Montgomery Ink book, Ink Enduring, when delving into the past history between Jake, Maya, and Border. Now we see the Gallagher brothers older wiser, more tortured. They each have something in their past that has shaped them into [...]

    21. I’m so in love with this book and this broody alpha male. Love restored was heartbreaking read that will have you in tears for the main character and the loss that he has faced in his life. The pain he carries around with him each day is evident and causes your heart to break for him. However, it was beautiful in the way that he was able to open himself up to the beautiful and strong character Blake. Blake was a hard working character that was totally different then what I originally thought o [...]

    22. Grahamoh how you are one sexy beast! Tatts, pierced *wink*, bearded, alpha, oh my! Add in the hurt from his past which is so devastating that it makes your heart hurt and you get one heck of a man. Blake has a past also and isn't what Graham thought. When they first met, you felt the spark, the animosity, because what you see isn't always what you get. Sometimes it's just a facade.There's secrets all around, sizzling attraction, laughter and family. This book hit all the things that I love in a [...]

    23. This one will tear your heart out and rebuild it page by page. Graham Gallagher is big, bearded, tattooed and rebuilding his life after a staggering loss. Blake Brennen may have been born to money but life has taken it away and given her something even more precious. These two each hold the key to the others healing if they can only get out of their own way. This book has a big group of friends, family and extended family and all the love and support that affords. Graham and Blake are going to n [...]

    24. This book was unexpected, it had many twists and turns throughout the novel. Not having read the “Montgomery Ink Series” it made things more interesting with the characters being all new. Of course I will now read that series to get a better understanding on those characters but for Blake and Graham their story took me to places I never thought possible. To have a lose and to find love again took strength I was in awe of Graham and for Blake to go to the end of the earth for her loved ones a [...]

    25. Graham and Blake sure know how to make text messaging each other interesting, "I asked you if you wanted food. If I wanted you to see my etchings, I’d have said come over and ride my ***k." Graham is a bear of a man, so when he does romance it's all caveman like, "he reached around her and gripped her ***. “Yeah, I do. Now pierce me so we can go home and eff.” I loved this book, I literally devoured it in an hour, I can't wait for the other boys to get their stories.

    26. Soul touchingThe story is so compelling and heartwarming as well as heartwrenching. Graham and Blake find in each other solace from loss and fear along with a deep love. I thoroughly enjoyed reading their story and getting to see this offshoot of the Montgomery clan as well as seeing Maya, Border and Jake. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
