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 brother, Colin, 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.

I started this story and was a little surprised and disappointed with the way the story had turned to new characters. Let me say after the first chapter I was so hooked on Brandon and his story and then Colin. I LOVE this arm of the story and will never again be so quick to judge. Thank you again Marie Force for a truly amazing and loving story. One more book to go I am a little afraid to start it as I know it is the last and I truly don't want to let go of anyone in these books.
The best ever so many happy tears!
I love this series. So intense.
But I am so delighted the series is complete so I can go on to the next book immediately!!!
loved this collection
the love this family shares the strength the mother has with her kids wounderful
loved the whole book
no matter what we r still family
hope there will be more to this collection
Brandon's story is so heartfelt that I had a hard time putting this one down. I really felt all the emotions that he went through with "Starting Over". I also enjoyed that this story included all the O'Malley clan and their lives.
Narration was great as always. Sorry to see the series end, but I will look for more books from this author.
