the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…
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 trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

Emotional; heartbreaking; romantic!!!
This is not going to be my usual review. When I get too emotional, too close to a book, I find it hard to follow a coherent thought. Love Restoration was one of those reads for me.
First I would like to say this cover is beautiful, because it fits Graham. I couldn’t think of him any other way. But the title, it’s a masterpiece. With this title Ms. Ryan has told us the story. This book talks about love, all sorts of; love for a child, for siblings, for family, for a partner, for friends. This book also talks about how to restore love. Sure the plot is about the Gallagher restoring an old house to its original beauty. But mainly, this book is about second chances. Is about breaking down and mending yourself to continue living. Is about finding within yourself the strength to become. Really, to become a better, or maybe a different version of yourself. To become someone one may learn to respect. To become someone you may respect in spite of whatever you have been. Is about love. About loving yourself, about loving others.
Graham is perfect!!! Really, is impossible to not love him.
He and his right hand had a perfectly nice relationship for now, and when things got downright dangerous, he got to know his left.
I love his sarcasm. I love when a person has mature enough that she doesn’t take herself too serious, that she can laugh of herself.
Buried it when he needed to, and found a way to live when not living almost seemed like a better choice.
He had been broken, but for him, family and love are his salvation.
The secondary characters are all a big part of the book and are all amazing also.
I plan. jake refines. Owen organizes. And you growl and grunt. by Murphy to Graham
I adore Blake. Her take charge attitude. She is definitely a kick-ass heroine.
I really don’t care if you have a problem with me, but I will have a problem if you make mistakes on the job because of it.
Really I have nothing bad to say about this book. I’ve felt, I’ve cried and I’ve loved!
You MAY read this book because you have read the spin-off series; you SHOULD read this book because you know Ms. Ryan only writes masterpieces; you MUST read this book because you want to love!!!
