"Kiss Me, I'm Irish" by Roxanne St. Claire, Jill Shalvis, & Maureen Child

"The Sins Of His Past" by Roxanne St. Claire

Pages: 176

My Story Summary : After participating in a stupid stunt, Deuce finds himself starting over again and coming back home to Rockingham, Massachusetts. As well as, finding out that the town and people he thought he knew have really changed. However, when he finds out what has happened (or going to be happening) to his family's bar he plans to step in thinking he can take it over before anything else changes. Nevertheless, in doing so he ends up altering Kendra's life all over again...

My Story Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars!! I LOVED this couple--Kendra & Deuce--they really knew how to get on each other’s nerves, get the other to laugh/smile, and heat them up too. Plus, the secret that Kendra is keeping was one twist that I never really expected and I really enjoyed reading about how it all worked out!

Yet, even though this was one, HOT and spicy read that kept me wanting to read more it was sweet/sad enough that it made me get teary eyed too during some parts. ♥

Story Teaser :
He'd dressed nicely for their day trip. She'd worn jeans and a sweater---not fully believing he'd follow up on his threats to take her to Fall River. But here he was...looking...
"You going to stare at me for an hour or are we leaving?"
Stare. She blinked. "You're imagining things. I'm just wondering what my restaurant supplier will think of you." She made a showing of hunting for her bag. ~ within Chapter 6

"Tangling with Ty" [South Village Singles, Book 2] by Jill Shalvis

Pages: 161

My Story Summary : Ty has brought himself up over the years and has turned into a brilliant architect who's currently doing the plans for Nicole's building. Because of his rough-and-tumble upbringings, he now lives and works wherever the drive takes him, meaning he isn't the settling down kind of guy.

Nicole has been a brainiac all her life, and has no problem proving it. She's also a wonderful ER doctor, who puts more hours in at the hospital then she does at home or socializing with her friends. Over a year ago, Nicole and her girlfriends put in a pact that they were going to be single forever. However, one of her friends, Suzanne, has already broken it and gotten engaged, so now it's only Nicole and Taylor left in the pact.

When Nicole & Ty meet, sparks instantly start flying and they both push each other's limits as to how far they are willing to go. Will they find that what they have been looking/waiting for all along is each other? Will Ty's wanderlust set in again having him move on without Nicole? Or will Nicole just decide to stick to her pact after all?

My Story Review : 4 out of 5 stars! All you need is a little love and you'll get it here in this intensely steamy story about two stubborn people needing more out of life then they ask for. Nicole and Ty are sooo good together!! They are a perfect combo of being similar enough to each other to understand one another and be okay with their rough spots, and being different enough that they intrigue each other in a way that cannot be ignored.

Very creative! I liked this one a lot! And even though it's a part of a series, it's written in a way that you can read it as a standalone novel too!

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Kissing Santa Claus | Time Out

Story Teaser :
Before he could attract her attention, she'd kicked off her shoes, then crossed her arms in front of her and whipped off her top.
She wore a tiger-striped bra---did she have any idea how sexy her secret lingerie fetish was?---and then put her hands to the button on her pants. Oh, boy. "Nicole!" He was barely braced on the studs now, but he leaned over way farther than he should, knowing he had to make her see him or she'd be good and pissed by the time she was naked, and generally he liked his women soft and smiling and mewling with lust when they were naked. ~ within Chapter 6

"Whatever Reilly Wants..." [Three-Way Wager Series, Book 2] by Maureen Child (aka Ann Carberry, Kathleen Kane, & Sarah Hart)

Pages: 146

My Story Summary : Connor and his brothers have been given $10,000 but instead of splitting the money between them they made a winner-takes-all bet, that whoever can make it three months without having sex will either split the money or get it all (depending on who's left standing). After one month passing and one brother out of the contest, Connor seems sure that he can make it. All he needs to do is stay away from all women!

That doesn't mean he has to avoid his best friend, Emma, though since he's never had any feelings for her before so he shouldn't now .... Right? After Emma finds out about those "no feelings,” she gets so mad that she plans to do everything in her power to prove just how wrong Connor is!

However, when planning the trap for him she never expected her heart would get involved during the process...

My Story Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, this story is very sweet and playful, about two friends finding out what was truly missing in their lives. I really liked the relationship between Connor and Emma, plus their flirty conversations and steamy sex scenes are hot enough to keep you interested! In addition, reading the banter between Connor and his brothers was funny too!!

However, I didn't like how the plot flowed from being really good to Emma wanting everything to come to a halt. It was annoying and I wish it were written a little better. Nevertheless, that didn't stop me from liking this story.

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Baby Bonanza

Story Teaser :
"Hey!" She braced her palms against his lower back, pushed herself up and shouted, "What the hell are you doing?"
"I'm through wasting time, Em." He slapped his palm against her butt, and when she yelped, he grinned.
"What are you, a caveman?"
"Caveman, tell me."
"I will if you'll put me down."
"Not a chance." ~ within Chapter 7

My Book Review : For the full book I give it 4 out of 5 stars! If you’re looking for a fun novel that has a LOT of HOT Irish men in it then this is the book for you!! Even though one story had a slow point in it, I would still recommend this novel to anyone who wants to read some HOT sex scenes, with good storylines behind it, along with some funny parts!
