Book Description

At a crossroads in her life and career, orphaned Ali Dearborn had always been the smart one. With near perfect recall, she accomplished a lot in a very short time. A meteoric rise led to an equally meteoric fall. With her life and career in shambles, she goes in search of her mother's roots in Ireland. Lost, she offers handsome Aidan O'Connell a lift from his broken-down car and gains an impromptu tour guide. But is Aidan only looking for a brief Irish Fling?


Editorial Reviews

Review

Authors by Authors - Jennifer Labelle
"The author does an amazing job with this well written tale of love at first sight...." "This is the second book I've read in this Valerie Douglas series about a group of four friends, Ali, Cam, Maggie and Jesse who didn't have a normal family life, but found each other and made their own. So far I've read Ali's Story "Irish Fling", and Molly's story "Director's Cut", and I'm looking forward to reading about Cam in "Dirty Politics" and Jesse in "Two Up". What can I say, I'm hooked!"

From the Author

This book was loosely based - very loosely based - on a trip I took to Great Britain. I did pick up a very sexy hitchhiker, but he wasn't anything like Aidan. The descriptions of the sites I saw were as accurate as I could remember. If you get a chance, do a tour through the Burren....

3.0 out of 5 stars Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf Reviews October 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I haven't read a romance in a long time and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It started off as a simple travel/self discovery/love at first sight story but then luckily for me morphed nicely into a bit more. I am generally not a fan of the whole love at first sight, divided by a ridiculous conflict, and then reunited to find lasting love type story: But this story managed to make me enjoy it nonetheless. The character development was well done and the setting in Ireland so gorgeous that I managed to find the love story believable despite itself.

Just when I feared there was no much more left to the story there was a small mystery thrown it to keep my interest though the end.

All in all, a fun quick read...a really believable love story and an entertaining way to pass a rainy day. I doubt I'll pick up the others in the series...but I don't regret reading this one.

NOTE: Honest Review of a book from my personal library - purchased from another retailer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! August 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The author does an amazing job with this well written tale of love at first sight. Ali Dearborn is at a crossroads in her career and in life. Orphaned at a young age, she moved around living in various foster homes. She travels to Ireland with a dual purpose in mind, one is to re-visit the Irish roots belonging to her mother, making her feel connected to a family she's longed for, and the other is to put her new business plan into action.

Her sense of direction is horrible, lost almost immediately after her arrival fate steps in, in the form of a gorgeous dark haired, blued eyed Irishman named Aidan O'Connell. He's stranded by the side of the road with a broken-down car, and she's in need of directions. While entranced by his sexy good looks, easy going attitude, and sexy Irish brogue, he designates himself as her very own personal tour guide, and she accepts. Having him around will certainly make her life easier. There's a chemistry between the two of them, and there are several historical spots along the way that she'd like to see, but is Aidan only looking for an Irish fling or is he willing to accept her heart with something more permanent before it's too late? Ali is full of surprises, and it isn't until he almost loses her that he gets a wake-up call, and Ali is deemed a hero.

This is the second book I've read in this Valerie Doulgas series about a group of four friends, Ali, Cam, Maggie and Jesse who didn't have a normal family life, but found each other and made their own. So far I've read Ali's Story "Irish Fling", and Maggie's story "Director's Cut", and I'm looking forward to reading about Cam in "Dirty Politics" and Jesse in "Two Up". What can I say, I'm hooked!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As an Irish girl, longing for the Emerald Isle... I'd have to say that Valerie Douglas made me feel at home. As for love at first sight... Always been a fairy tale. This story made me believe in love and magic all over again!
I love Ali and Aiden. No two people deserve happiness more. I'm glad they found their way to each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irish Fling February 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a first for me, so I must have been greatly impressed with this book. I stayed with the book until I finished it at
6:00am this morning. The heroine of the story Alexandra (Ali) Dearborn was portrayed as a all american girl next door, who had a few good things going for her, which she so deserved after her childhood full of foster homes due to the loss of her mother at the age of 5 years, and never knowing who her father was. She was a genius. also coupled with something similar to a photograpic memory, graduated from MIT and hired by a the top computer software company..

She quits her job to begin a new career in Ireland, (her mothers birthplace) meets a handsome man seems to fall in love at first sight, has an steamy affair for a week when he leaves her. However, heartbroken she picks herself up and pursues her hoped for new career. She becomes unwittingly involved in a terror plot, which nearly costs her her life. Her former lover comes back to protect her.

The best part of this book that created such a compulsion for me to write this review was the triple whammy at her birthday celebration at a local pub. It starts out with tears filling your eyes, then they start streaming down your cheeks, then you just sob. It was so beautiful !!!!! The story does continue on to a great ending.

I can not remember ever being so affected by a book before.

Irish Fling
by Valerie Douglas

Alli Dearborn heads to Ireland to regroup and visit her mothers homeland. Directionally challenged she gets lost and helps a stranded motorist. Hot and Dangerously looking Aidan O'Connell is in need of a vacation. Alli is just what he needs. He becomes her tour guide and Irish Fling. Neither as they appear and this will lead to surprises for both of them as they try to find out who is trying to kill Alli.

What a Fantastic story, masterfully written details so crisp and clear you can see everything even smell the Irish surroundings. This has Romance, Suspense,Mystery. All in one masterful written book.
The first in four books, I Highly Recommend this book!
