Life isn't worth living if you don't fight to live. That's what Murphy Gallagher learned at a young age when cancer ravaged his body not once, but twice. Over the course of his survival, he lost his parents and his childhood, but he's been healthy for years and has become a man he hopes his family is proud of. But when his world tilts on its axis yet again, he'll have to learn what it means to fight not only the unknown but also his attraction to his best friend.
Tessa Stone works hard and plays harder. She's spent her life trying to figure out who she is in the present rather than looking back. Yet when she's forced into close proximity with Murphy, she'll have to not only be his rock but learn how to relax enough to maybe let him be hers, as well. But seduction doesn't stop when the world seems to, and close encounters of the naked kind might just be the first step in something much more complicated than either of them bargained for. Life, though, is for living, after all.

Life really is for the living
It is no secret that I’m a Carrie Ann Ryan fan. I own every book she’s written. I was especially touched by Murphy and Tessa’s story. This truly is a story about overcoming the past and the residual fear that remains so that you can embrace the present and the future. These characters each have their strengths and weaknesses, as all human beings do. Carrie Ann brings a realistic view of what is like to have to face a foe that you thought you had already beaten. I would recommend this book as well as any of her others.

Loved listening to Hope Restored, narrated by Gregory Salinas. Wonderful love story of 2 people overcoming illness and abuse to find a best friend relationship that turned into the loves of each other's lives. This book had all of the feels that a great story could ever have. I volunteered an honest review for this Audible book.
