    Love changes everything, as Sean O'Brien and Moby Haines discover in 'The O'Brien Way' by Carol Lynne. Both men are wounded by their pasts, living under the illusion that they are not worthy of being loved. Together they are able to rise above the negativity of that feeling and learn to love not only each other, but themselves as well. Carol Lynne is a master at making her characters believable.

All through the book, I found myself cheering them on, willing them to trust, and encouraging them to take a chance; but, old habits are hard to change. Only when they could see themselves and each other through the eyes of love were they able to discover the truth and believe it. Taking that leap of faith is difficult for anyone, but for someone who feels inferior, it's cavernous. I especially like the way Moby's compassion shows, first in dropping everything to care for his mother, for rescuing his dog Jilly, and for nursing Sean when he is sick. All of these gestures make it obvious that there is a lot more to him than meets the eye, which, by itself, is considerable. It is so heartening when Moby starts to realize that his inner beauty outshines his outer appearance. I love Sean's continuing internal dialogue, giving me insight into what he is thinking. It's interesting to watch as he slowly, but surely erases his doubts and fears replacing them with trust and love, how he begins to reevaluate what is important to him and which parts of the O'Brien Way fit him and which parts don't. I loved this story. 'The O'Brien Way' is a worthy addition to the continuing Cattle Valley saga. It's an intensely emotional and sensual expression of love's ability to change everything.

    Carol Lynne has another winner on her hands. This story of O'Brien's pub owner Sean and his waiter Moby, makes for a sweet, although at times frustrating love story. Moby(oh the story behind THAT nickname...lol) was thrown out of his home by a controlling, homophobic father and a beaten-down submissive mother, and found himself making a good living as a high priced stripper in Las Vegas. Then his father dies, and he finds himself having to come home to take care of his mother. He goes to work fo Carol Lynne has another winner on her hands.

He goes to work for Sean O'Brien at his pub, making not quite as good money as he did in Las Vegas, and finds himself drawn to the pub owner. Sean finds himself falling for the good looking waiter, although he is determined not to get involved with his employee. He has had his heart broken too often in the past and he isn't ready to put himself on the line again. Both men find as they grow closer that they both have had unhappy childhoods, although both are quite different Both men come to accept their relationship and it continues to grow, although there are a few speed bumps along the way, and a couple of plot twists that were not expected. Carol has definitely written another great story that is truly worthy of being a part of the Cattle Valley Series...

    I enjoyed this one a lot. I really like Moby and Sean as characters and as a couple. Sean does something really stupid in the book but he makes up for it (even if I thought he should have suffered a little bit more before he was forgiven). I enjoyed Moby and the way he came home to take care of his mom, Virginia, when his dad past away. I actually thought I wouldn't like Virginia but she was surprisingly likable especially with the way she was willing to accept Sean as Moby's partner and was kind I enjoyed this one a lot.

It was extremely sweet how Moby took care of Sean when he was sick, too. I couldn't help but smile at that part and I absolutely loved Sean's jealousy afterwards. The only problem I had was it felt incomplete at the end. Considering the way Sean grew up and how his family never celebrated anything, I was anticipating reading about what Sean was feeling when he finds out what all Moby put together. Unfortunately, it ended before I could experience that so I felt a little disappointed. Other than that, I really enjoyed the story, it's one of my favorites so far. Recommended.

    In the beginning this so did not feel like a Cattle Valley novel. It was nice to have some estrogen in the plot. I liked Moby and his mom and I like how their relationship got better. I liked Sean's values. I was shocked that sex was turned down at the first opportunity, that was very nice. The plot had substance and that's why I'm giving this 5 stars. Although it was hard, I liked Sean's dad honesty as well. I hope that relationship can continue to grow. In the beginning this so did not feel like a Cattle Valley novel.

His last relationship wasn't good either which hurt him even more in the department. Moby changes that and so does his mom, Virginia. Sean's mom died day he was born so he never had one or a family really since his dad and brothers resented him. Dad even said should have given him up. They are starting to work on things by the end of the book, but have a long ways to go. Moby was forced to leave his home because the man he thought was his dad hated his ways. His mom finally reveals that she married the man because he agreed he'd raise Moby. Moby was a stripper before coming back home to help his mom after his 'dad's 'death. Things are rocky at first with them but it's because of the way her deceased husband treated her. Emotional abuse even if never hit her. She opens up to Moby and Sean as well even falls for the dog that Moby brings home. Jolly is a sweet girl and always goes to sniffing Sean in certain areas first which is funny. I loved the how this book went and ended too. Sean got his first ever Christmas and birthday. It was when his mom died so never celebs it. Virginia even made him a birthday cake. Sean did wonderful with her too by giving her a part time job cooking at his pub. I love this town so much and can't wait for more.

    An enjoyable story featuring Sean and Moby. Both had parental/family issues that made for an interesting backstory and character development. The romance progressed organically and there was a lovely HEA ending.

Sean O’Brien’s number one business rule is no dating his employees.

Sean O’Brien’s number one business rule is no dating his employees. He has been fighting his ever growing attraction to waiter Moby Haines since the day he hired him, but that quickly changes when he begins to realize that Moby is more than just a pretty face and hot body. Following his homophobic and controlling father’s death, Moby leaves his lucrative Las Vegas career as a stripper to return to Wyoming to care for his mother. Believing he has no marketable job skills other than his looks and needing the extra cash his tips brings him, he quickly discovers he and Sean definitely do not see eye to eye on his inability to set personal boundaries with the bar’s customers. As is so often the case in real life, Sean’s and Moby’s unresolved pasts play a large role in their current relationship. They are complex and multi-faceted characters with unhappy childhoods that have defined who they have become. Their relationship unfolds in an unhurried and believable manner, and it is both heartwarming and passionate. Cattle Valley: The O’Brien Way by Carol Lynne is an engaging novel with a strong sense of family. Charming protagonists and a compelling storyline quickly engross the reader as Sean and Moby take a chance on love and come to terms with their dysfunctional families. Rated 4 Ravens by Kathy!

    I've been feeling very ill today so I've been laying in bed most of the evening, which enabled me to read this in one sitting (or laying, really). I actually liked this book a lot better than the two previous ones in the series. It had a bit more depth and I liked the family-connections. Again, it being such a short book, I felt like there was more story to tell, but I assume Carol Lynne and her publishers have figured this is a thing that works for the series.

Now what I'm really anxious about, especially after reading the description for the next book in the series, is Rio's behavior. Rio and his men have been my favorites in the series. Also, since the next book will be about them, I'm afraid it will be sort of a circle closing and the series coming to an end... I suppose we'll see that next month, don't we?

    I loved getting to know Sean and Moby more. I really felt for both of them, both had so much baggage between them, with Moby with his family problems and his low self worth and Sean and all his rules that kept people away from him. It was sad to see I was glad to see them open up to each other and work things out. You could tell moby had feelings for Sean, I'm just glad Sean let himself be open to it. It wasn't easy but they got there in the end. cant wait to read more! On to the next! I loved getting to know Sean and Moby more.

I don't even have the words to explain this book, one of my faves... absolutely loved it! Ms. Lynne hit the nail on the head bigtime with these boys!

    Really enjoyed this one. I can't quite put my finger on why I connected with this one more than some of the more recent Cattle Valley, but it did. A solid 4.5 stars for me. I'll probably re read it soon just to see if I can eek a slightly adjusted ending from it. I know I won't but I'll enjoy it just the same. Really enjoyed this one.
