My review: The Devaney Brothers: Ryan and Sean: Ryan's Place\Sean's Reckoning (The Devaneys) by Sherryl Woods
This is a reprint and combined two stories. This is Ryan and Sean's story. When Ryan was only 8 they came home for school to empty apartment. Their parents took their twin brothers and left them. They don't know why they were left. Then different foster families.
They all have issues of trust in family and love.
Ryan felt guilty that he could not save his brothers from being separated. Ryan is a very giving person. Ryan owns a Irish Pub in Boston.
Maggie O'Brien comes in the pub Thanksgiving Eve. She needs help getting home with a car full of food. Maggie finds herself attracted to Ryan. She decides to find out where it could go. She decides to chase Ryan.
Maggie helps Ryan to search for his family.I really liked the characters. I wonder why there parents abandoned them. Too bad the kids have scars and lack of trust and love.
He is a firefighter. He never plans of falling in love and having a family. While watching for hot spots of apartment building that had just burned up. He catches a little boy climbing into the fire truck. Sean goes and get him.
Deanna Blackwell little boy got away from Ruby his baby sitter. Deanna Blackwell just lost everything she had except for her son.
Her ex-husband left her before the baby was born. She is working two jobs to take care of herself and son.
Because of their past neither trust anyone. They are afraid of the future.
Their are a lot of drama, lack of trust and love. Their are plenty of humor scenes, and some sex scenes.
The story is good and draws you into their lives and wanting them to find out the answers to their past.
