Fly Girl’s Review:
This is the first Shaughnessy Brothers novel I’ve read, so you’ll have to bear with me on this one. I have read the Band on the Run series though, which is a spin off of this series, so I’ve gotten to see many of the characters sprinkled throughout. The Shaughnessy family is uber involved in each other’s business, so many of them make appearances in the Band on the Run series stories. I understand why now, they are a great clan who love one another and share their lives selflessly. This story is a bit different though because it is Bobby Hannigan’s story. He is the troubled bad boy about town who is related to the Shaughnessy’s through marriage and being a neighbor.
The story opens with Bobby calling in the one favor he ever pried from Quinn Shaughnessy and it is hilarious how he got it. What he cashes it in for isn’t as funny, but starts this tale of two hearts who need to give and be given a chance for love. Teagan is new on the scene of the Shaughnessy’s craziness, since she is a cousin to the clan and her Dad’s military service kept them from living closer.
I love the whole sense of family this series has. It’s more than the Montgomery Brother series has. These guys just make you want to be part of a big family who genuinely care about everyone. Teagan finds out the hard way, there is no pity party with that many family living in a small town and soon realizes she has to own her self doubts and caged heart among them. She slowly un-cages it after much love from family, some hard talks with her mom, and blind faith that she won’t have to re-cage it.
Bobby is just realizing he isn’t the invicible guy he thought he was and that sometimes to get the things you want, you have to work for them and you can’t give up at the first obstacle. Ok, maybe he hits a few brick walls. This story really hit home for me, I think, because of my military service and having to watch my husband leave, not knowing if he was going to return. It takes a toll on your heart and I could definitely see myself caging it like Teagan.
As usual, Samantha doesn’t let us wallow in self pity or heartache for too long. She gives us the HEA we all expect and love. This is definitely a 5 of 5 for me and will be in the running for my Top 10 list. If you love caged hearts finding each other, this one is a must read.
