ABOUT THE BOOK
Kiss the Blarney Stone, Hope Dunn is going to need some good ole fashion Irish luck! In the chaos of tax season the Arizona accountant is pulled away to stand in her cousin’s wedding. All it takes is one step back in the Big Apple, and she regrets making the trip. True to character, her mother uses their time together to hound Hope about getting married and settling down.
Still, Hope fulfills her bridesmaid obligations by joining the bridal party for a shamrock wearing, pint chugging St. Paddy’s day blow out. There she runs into best man—and smokin’ hot ginger—Kellan Townsend. Far too much green beer later, she finds out exactly what that fine Irish lad keeps under his kilt.
Afterward, Hope wants nothing more than to walk of shame her way into a dark room and nurse her hangover. Unfortunately, wedding demands won’t allow it. As if facing Kellan isn’t awkward enough, her mother picks that moment to launch into a fresh guilt-trip over her lack of grandbabies. Like a lucky little Leprechaun, Kellan cuts in with a magical offer.
A pretend romance, to get her mother off her back, seems like a wish granted. But Kellan has an agenda all his own. Can he use this opportunity to jig his way straight into Hope’s heart? Or will he need a four-leaf clover to get past this workaholics defenses?
She lives and works in Arizona, he lives and works in New York. Can their long-distance romance last?
Hope is back for her cousin Hallie’s wedding in New York though it’s the busiest time of year at her law firm. She’d do anything for Hallie. Even put up with her mother’s badgering about marriage and grandbabies. But when Hope’s mother threatens to invite a friend’s obnoxious son to be Hope’s date at the wedding she has to think fast. Enter Kellan, a former classmate and handsome best man who has had a crush on Hope for some time. She’s the kind of woman one would bring home to their mother. And after one-night with Hope he would do anything to get more nights with her before she leaves for Arizona. So when opportunity knocks, he steps in and saves Hope from the date from hell, by claiming they’re a couple. Going along with it, Hope finds herself falling for the kind and sexy Irishman as he is falling for her. Can they make the long-distance romance work?
I’m still trying to get used to novellas which always leave me guessing what will happen in the future. However, I like how Hope and Kellan go for it and are willing to make sacrifices to be together. Their attraction is immediate and believable due to their past and their maturity and the book ends with a surprise and a positive note.
Overall, this is a romantic novella told in dual POVs and includes St. Patrick’s Day, green beer, a wedding, and a HEA. And how could one resist an endearment like “lassie” said in a whisper in a husky Irish brogue? shiver
Thank you to Ms. McLaughlin and Ms. Dover for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
