Guest Review: Worth the Fall by Claudia Connor

Goodreads Summary:

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.

Jessica's Review:

I really liked the way this book started out. The characters drew me in and the scenes were realistic enough to keep me entertained and wondering what would happen next. But then I got halfway through and it just fell flat. It didn't give you an idea of how much time had passed which would have helped in some areas, and just when the tension was getting good, it ended. I just felt the author could have done a lot more with the story in the second half of the book.

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the novel for review!
