Marisa is a woman who continually rushes into situations heart first, gives it her all, and then has to pick herself back up off the floor and start over. It is her over eager heart that always seems to let her down. For example, she has just been fired from being a personal nurse to a paraplegic man, and she is under the impression that becoming a contestant on a reality show will help her find love and improve her luck along the way. Everyone can see failure written all over this idea except for Marisa, but with time to burn, she doesn’t see the harm in a little adventure. Will her adventure lead her to good things just like she hopes, or will it show her just how bad her luck can get? Will Ireland prove to be the lucky place that some claim it is, or will she find it too harsh, dreary, and barren to give her anything good?
It was such a thrilling pleasure and delight to watch this story unfold before my eyes. This book is one laced with excited hope and high expectation that feels full to bursting if not met as desired. The wonderful characters made this story so vibrant and real for me. They taught me so much in a short amount of time. Their slow yet beautiful progression was sometimes breathtaking and other times cringe-worthy. Nothing too away the blazing hope that dripped from each word as it feel from my lips. That was what kept me going when I thought things were too ugly and painful to continue forward.
Rachelle Ayala has written yet another brilliant work of art that will show you that no matter what the state of your life, always know that you can remake it into the stuff of dreams with enough heart, effort, and hope. While we can’t control the influences of others on our life, we can control how we react and the choices we make. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes; just be afraid when you don’t pick yourself up afterwards.
I loved this story from the beginning and found I didn’t want to put it down even to sleep.
Amelia finds herself on a plane to Ireland to meet what might be the one. But she gets a surprise when she knocks on his door. Why does she seem to always pick the wrong men? When she is drowning her broken heart at a local pub, a young good-looking man sits beside her. She wants this man to talk to her, unlike the older men who wanted to buy her a drink. After all, they were old enough to be her father and grandfather. She texts her sister about the hottie that sits beside her and Claire tells her she needs a little fun and to enjoy herself.
Rory is looking for a little peace and quiet, a little time a local pub might get his creative juices flowing again. When he sits beside the pretty girl at the bar, he wonders if she will recognize him. He finds himself wanting to spend more time with Amelia and wants her to see his homeland. Maybe that will change her perception of Ireland and show her that not all men are the same.
While Rory and Amelia roam around parts of Ireland and he takes her to his parents home, they become close and both are beginning to have feelings for each other. Amelia can’t have another relationship that will end before it gets started. So she leaves before he wakes up without leaving him anyway to contact her.
Will Rory find Amelia when he visits New York? Will Amelia regret leaving Rory without leaving him a way to contact her? Can they make a relationship work when they both live in different countries?
I love everything about Ireland and when I read the title, I knew I had to read this one. I am so glad I did and I can’t wait for the next one.
**A copy of this book was provided by the author and this is my honest review**
His deep voice reminded her of a really good bourbon—a little raspy, but ultimately smooth and languid.
Oh, don’t call me Mr. Harper. That’s my ol’ man, and I haven’t pissed you off enough to warrant that sort of bone-deep ugliness.
Babe, if this is your version of fast, going slow just might kill me…
Yeah, you’re right—this is a lotta look. It’s like . . . a granny’s house, but only if that granny was obsessed with both Gunsmoke and Miami Vice.
You know, when I met Nolan, Bridget promised she’d never try to fix me up with either of his brothers because you both needed hand trucks to haul around your emotional baggage. But you know what? … I’ll take you, baggage and all.”
Hold on, darlin’. Give me a chance to get the blood directed to my brain again.
They met on a long plane ride and enjoyed each other’s company as they crossed the Atlantic, but despite the immediate attraction, somehow they didn’t exchange information, but then they just so happened to meet up again while attending the same conference in the same Irish hotel. Fate – maybe, serendipity – obviously, outstanding Irish luck – most certainly! I adored this book start to finish! Josie Kerr has a wily sense of humor and is a master storyteller as she quickly sucked me into a captivating Cal Harper/Kat Fahey vortex with her cleverly amusing writing style, alluring and quirky characters, and enticing and engaging storylines. Even the cranky characters were appealing and/or intriguing. And sizzle and snap – this couple threw sparks and scorched the ceiling as well as the sheets. This series has proven to be addictive as the other stories are already beckoning to me. I greedily want all Ms. Kerr’s lovely and witty words; I need to know all there is to know about each of them. Thankfully I already have the second book ready for perusal.
