REVIEW: Worth The Fall (The McKinney Brothers Bok #1) By, Claudia Connor

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.

When I picked this book up I knew the story could go one of two ways. The story could be amazing. Sweet and full of loveable moments, or it could be cheesy and not worth the time I took to read it. I am so glad the book ended up being the first one. This book was everything I hoped it would be and more. I was so happy with it when I finished the book!

Matt is a navy SEAL that is on leave because of a combat injury. Matt knows that something is missing. He is past the stage of hooking up with random women but he’s a SEAL. He can’t settled down and have the family he knows deep down that he wants. I loved Matt’s character. He was sweet, and swoon-worthy. I mean any man that can be like that to kids that are not even his is someone special. He has his dark spots though and it was great to see him let someone in to help him heal.

Abby’s husband pasted away 6 months ago and now she is just trying to let her kids heal. They never came first for her late husband and now she wants them to start making some real happy memories. She has four kids and she is pregnant with her 5th. She has resigned herself to life without a relationship, until she agrees to a week with Matt. Abby was such a strong character. She was a great mom who always put her kids first. She also let Matt show her what a real relationship is. What it could feel like for her and her kids to be first in someone else’s life.

This was a great book about two people making room for the love of their lives. Both characters had to let go of their pasts for real. Not just say they did and bury it. It was a great book and I can’t wait to read the rest in this amazing series!
