Overview

Book 3 in the Treading Water Series


In a drunken stupor, Brandon O'Malley frightens his brother Aidan's girlfriend, enraging his brother and the rest of his family. Aidan offers Brandon the choice of rehab or jail, and Brandon reluctantly enters treatment. While in rehab, he confronts the lifetime of secrets and resentments that fueled his spiral into alcoholism, and these revelations have a major effect on his entire family. When he returns home expecting to resume his supervisory role in the family's construction business, Brandon learns his father has retired and put his younger brothe, Colin,r in charge. Brandon is unhappy to be given the job of renovating an apartment building where he loses his heart to an adorable five-year-old tenant named "Mike." After he falls hard for Michaela, Brandon becomes involved with her mother Daphne, who is running from a past that will later test his sobriety and his mettle as a man.


""The finale to the Treading Water trilogy was an enchanting lesson in ensuring a low point in your life doesn't define the person you become. It is wonderfully written with characters that envelope you in their world. This book is an excellent ending to a series of books that truly pulled at my heartstrings."" -Starting Over, A Reviewer Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews.

Great book

Make sure you have tissues on hand, as I guarantee you will definitely shed some tears in the beginning set-up, but that's what will make the journey to the "Happily Ever After" so meaningful. This is a wonderful book on overcoming your past, forgiveness, finding love, and family. If you haven't read the 1st two books in her Treading Water trilogy, you definitely should before reading this one. Again all of them are wonderful, and I was so hooked I read late into the night to finish each book in 4 hours!! I stumbled on this author, and since then have gone through all her books. I absolutely love all of the books by Marie Force. She has a way of writing sensual contemporary romance that's real, where the relationships develop without the ridiculous, soap opera-like melodrama that one might find in cheaper contemporary romances. I have the feeling that her books could easily translate to on-screen romance films. If you haven't checked out her other books - definitely go for the Fatal Series if you like suspense. It's what hooked me into Marie Force. My other favorites were the Gansett Island Series, another another amazing contemporary romance series.

I've read all 3 books in this series and this book ties them all together nicely. A little too much graphic sex to suit me and The characters seem to fall in love quite quickly but all in all it's a lovely story. I would reccomend the whole series, I felt like I knew all the charactera well by the end of this book.

Tugs at your Heartstrings!! Couldn't put it done. Loved the story and the characters. Your heart breaks for Brandon and so happy that he is able to reconcile with his family and find the girl of this dreams. This story gives a great insight into alcoholism and how it effects everyone .

I got my first Marie Book from Book Bub, and have read every single title she has written. I honestly can't say which series is my favorite or which book is my favorite, only that I cannot wait until her next book, in whatever series! this book however is a tear jerker. Love, loss and family make this a real winner. Make sure you have a box of tissue! again a great book by a great author!

Although i might not read the fourth book, this series was great. The author is very talented! You really grow to connect with the family and go through many emotions. However, after reading 3 of the books i am bored with the series. This author still gets 4 stars.
