It also served as a reminder why I don’t like to give up on a series. With books 1 and 2, not particularly a good fit for me, I stepped right into book 3 and saw what a great, sweet couple Tommy and Deidre made. It felt great to be back home with the O’Leary’s, folks. This experienced, handsome, quiet, dirty talking, sweet natured guy pretty much was head over heels the very first time he laid eyes on Deidre in the previous book. Having never had the chance to ask her out, he was now over the moon at her sudden, unexpected return.
Deidre has had quite a dilemma, folks. She’s been spinning her wheels unhappily back home on the Emerald Isle but equally dismayed at not tying the knot with her long term/family friend/pushed together/childhood sweetheart boyfriend who is reluctant to pop the question. What’s a girl to think when the guy who insists they wait for marriage to get smexy seems perfectly content not just to keep her at arm’s length, but thousands of miles away, as well?
Yes, there is a long distance love triangle that goes on very briefly. Once the truth is exposed, the main couple start to fully explore their attraction guilt-free, but relationship angst lingers until the very end, in one form or another, especially after Tommy’s bold move to give them more time together. Some will likely feel it is putting the cart before the horse, folks. It definitely took me by surprise. Frankly, I love it when an author does just that.
With lots of family weighing in, heroine hand wringing, reluctance to call it love, and last but not least, a very smitten, determined leading man who doesn’t want to let go of his leading lady, Through Your Eyes has you looking at their relationship from several different perspectives.
Here’s to hoping my review has been helpful in someway in helping you decide if Through Your Eyes looks good to you.
Title: Through Your Eyes, Series: For Your Love, Author: Shannyn Schroeder, Pages: 320, stand-alone but part of a series, conflicted/wishy washy heroine who starts off with a boyfriend, sweet natured/likable/good guy hero who hasn’t been a saint, VERY graphically steamy with lusty language, HEA, brief love triangle, OW hits on hero in heroine’s presence.

Deirdre Murphy, our heroine, arrives in Chicago from Ireland to vacation with her cousins (O’Learys). Deirdre received a Christmas present from her boyfriend to return to the states, since she was her happiest when she last visited. Deirdre was somewhat disappointed that she did not get a proposal from her boyfriend, but was happy to return to the states for a month. She is not too happy at home, since she has too much pressure from her family to run their pub, and uses this opportunity to give herself a break.
Tommy O’Malley, our hero, is a tattoo artist, who has many tattoos himself and is a hockey player. Tommy still thinks about the lost opportunity to introduce himself to Deirdre that last time she was here, and is shocked when he visits the bakery, to see her working there. In a short time, Tommy asks Deirdre to go out with him, but she puts him off due to her having a boyfriend in Ireland. But every time she talks to her boyfriend, he keeps telling her to have fun, even to go out with others. Deirdre knows something isn’t right, but she does then accept Tommy’s advances; soon Deirde, who is a virgin, begins to feel a strong attraction to Tommy. He was determined to win her over, and in a short time both of them realize they were falling in love. The problem….she was soon to return to Ireland, as she knew her family depended on her.
Things change once her boyfriend explains why he is pushing her to date others. He is gay, and wants to marry his boyfriend. After getting past the initial shock, Deirdre is happy to explore more of her feelings for Tommy. I thought Tommy and Deirdre were so perfect for each other, and together they will find a way to stay together. Despite their love for each other, both families ( O’Learys- O’Malleys) for the most part are not too happy with their decision. I loved seeing the O’Learys, especially Maggie, and Moira, and though he was tough on Tommy, it was good to see Jimmy, though I wanted to smack him a few times.
What I loved about this story was seeing two people fight for their love, and in Deirdre’s case, possibly hurt her family to allow herself to be happy. There were some ups and downs for them, mostly from the family pressuring them, but love will prevail. In time, it becomes apparent to all how much they truly did love each other. Through Your Eyes was a wonderful romance, a great couple, fantastic family, and some issues that threaten their relationship. Once again, Shannyn Schroeder gives us another sweet story that you should be reading.
