Review: Catch and Release by Laura Drewry

The irresistible O’Donnell brothers return in a charming novel from the bestselling author of Off the Hook (“The perfect balance of sweet, sexy, and wonderfully romantic.”—Lauren Layne).

Hope Seaver is an up-and-coming TV producer tackling the hardest gig of her career: a reality show set at the Buoys, a scenic fishing destination owned by three handsome, stubborn brothers. Liam and Finn O’Donnell are willing to tolerate her crew for the sake of the business, but Ronan would rather chew off a limb than open up on camera. Somehow Hope has to convince him of her good intentions—and stop herself from swooning every time Ronan walks into the frame.

Ronan knows that he’s the reason his brothers gave up their old lives to run the Buoys, and he needs to make it worth their while. So if this out-of-towner with the kind eyes and dazzling smile wants to give them the free publicity they desperately need, Ronan can’t say no. He just won’t let himself get burned again by a double-dealing woman. But what if Hope’s good-girl routine isn’t an act? When Ronan lets his guard down long enough to catch a glimpse of the real Hope, he likes what he sees—enough to give love another shot.

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

Catch and Release is the third book in the Fishing for Trouble series but can easily be read as a stand alone.  Personally I feel readers should read the entire series from the beginning simply because the O'Donnell men are amazing and the Buoys is a spectacular setting.

After reading the first two books and getting to know two of the O'Donell brothers I didn't think it was possible to adore a third brother as much as the first two. Guess what? I was wrong. Ronan was just as easy to fall in love with as Liam and Finn. From his rugged good looks to his family loyalty and even his stubborn streak, I was a goner. I was also a big fan of Hope and I loved how she would shoot off little known random facts whenever she was nervous. It was really cute and something I could totally relate to. The two of them were super cute together.

Although this book was quite short, it dealt with the Maggie the absentee O'Donell mother. So not only did the reader get an extremely satisfying contemporary romance, the mystery (of sorts) behind her disappearance came to a conclusion.

I know I've said it before but the biggest thing for me about this series that made me fall in love with it was the setting. I loved everything about the Buoys. From the location to the family run, simplistic feel of it and the cosy vibe it gave off. I could visualise myself vacationing there and spending time out on the boats. I could see myself sitting in one of the mismatched chairs while having a drink and reading a book or playing a game. The sexy O'Donell brothers were just an added bonus!

For fans of the genre, this series is wonderful and not to be missed. Drewry has an amazing talent of creating really great characters in fabulous settings with stories of substance to back them up. Unfortunately there are no more O'Donell brothers so I fear this may be the last instalment in this series. I can't lie, this makes me a little sad. I'm not ready to leave the Buoys yet!
