by Claudia Connor (Goodreads Author)
Prepare to be swept away by a talented debut author with a passionate, powerful story to tell.
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.

My Worth The Fall Review ...
God! What a sweet love story!!!!!!
I loved Matt from the get go. *swoon* The book starts basically with Matt getting hit by a football and falling instantly in love with a family. It is not your typical love story but it was amazing. I loved the fact that Matt saw past all the baggage of 4.5 kids and fell in love with all of them.
How long had it been since she'd been sheltered instead of being the shelterer? No one wanted to be strong all the time.
For Abby, god she was so broken. Often I get frustrated with heroines who are whiny and insecure and there were moments where I was like 'Gah! Just pull your big girl panties up and move on' but then I had to step back and remind myself that Abby wasn't whiny and insecure she was just really broken, which broke my heart.
"Everything in life's a chance. Nothing is a sure thing. people die, they leave, they change. ..."
Matt had his own demons but he knew what he wanted from the beginning and powered through to make it happen because he had to fight so many aspects for Abby to let go and fall where Matt would be to catch her.
This is a debut book by Claudia Connor and it rocked! I can NOT wait for Worth the Risk. January can not come soon enough. This book was well written and captured me from the beginning. I was only going to read a few chapters before bed but I ended up staying up all night because I couldn't put it down having to find out how this story ended and what a sweet end it was. *sigh*
4.5 I fell thumbs up!
