Book Review – Worth the Fall by Claudia Connor (McKinney #1)

They meet on a beach. . . . Abby Davis isn’t wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she’s busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn’t looking for fun—he’s a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions . . . and fallen brothers.

They only have a week. . . . Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt’s been sidelined by a combat injury, and haunted by the best friend he lost and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL—focused and dedicated. This leaves no time for what he’s always wanted: a family.

But a week is all it takes. . . . Matt opens her heart while Abby soothes his soul. And though they plan to say good-bye when the week is over, something magical happens on that beach, something neither can forget. Something utterly, completely worth falling for.

5 out of 5 stars
First of all, I apologize for my absence.  I’ve been very busy, but I have been reading.
Secondly, READ THIS BOOK.  What a unique concept this book has – a women with four young children takes them to the beach for a vacation – and meets the man of her dreams.  Abby has some MAJOR abandonment issues – MAJOR.  Matt made a promise to his best friend he feels he need to honor, so there are issues on both sides.
The kids in this book are SO adorable.  Everyone in this book has a normal name:  Abby, Matt, Grace, Charlie, Jack and Annie.  I hate when books give the characters stupid names – takes away from it.  But this book, the kids will steal your heart.  They are so sweet and genuine.  The relationship between Matt and Abby, and Matt and Abby’s kids, moved at a pace that seemed believable, especially when you hear Abby’s backstory.  Matt’s family was really cool too, totally accepting of Abby and her brood.  All around likable characters make for a book you won’t be able to put down.

I don’t often give 5 stars, but this book is very deserving.  I would highly recommend this book, and I hope you will too.
