Experience Ireland—the dramatic beauty, the warm hospitality…and the smoking hot local guys!
Imagine nursing a pint in a cozy, authentic country pub, far from Cork's busy city pulse. Getting here took you a plane, bus, taxi and…um, bicycle. But just as you're resigning yourself to drinking beside grey-haired farmers, you see him—a man with the looks and charm to soothe any heartbroken girl.
He's your bartender. Your really, really gorgeous bartender.
For American Jamie Webb—recently dumped and housesitting for two weeks—Connor Kelleher is like a six-course feast after a 23-year starvation diet. But it's gotta be casual. She's just begun rerouting her life after a three-year man-related detour. Still, a sexy romp (or twenty!) with Sexy McBartender?
But what happens when Jamie's best-laid plans for no future plans with any man begin to change?
Her Best Laid Plans by Cara McKenna is a quickie read that was just what I needed during my slight reading slump. Not only was the setting really cool: Ireland (I want to read more books set in Ireland, people!), but right off the bat I liked the main character for braving this trip alone. I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to ever do that, sad to say.
The other thing I loved was the instant chemistry between our two love interests. I love that they set this up for themselves as a two fling where they would enjoy each other to the max. And, oh man, their sexy times were really hot. I felt their connection was really strong by the end of their two weeks and I wished they’d somehow make it to where they could be together for good, but of course, there are obstacles and things that can’t be easily changed.
But do not despair!! I did get my happy ending and I was pleasantly surprised by it. I couldn’t have asked for more from this short, sexy read. I highly recommend it!
