An Irish main hero, tattooed, with a military past – and two more brothers to come in the series? Color me impressed and willing to go!
Charla Taylor was content working for an old man until the end of his days – only, his end came sooner than she was ready for. Now she’s left with a letter to pass on to his eldest son – who had no idea his father existed! Bar owner Liam Murphy had his life sorted out, but fate had other plans for him. Now he and Charla, while tugging at each other’s heartstrings, have to fight to stay alive and uncover his father’s secrets – all the while looking for his little brothers.
Good Lord, this was an awesome book! It strarted out pretty slow, and at first I thought this was just gonna be a contemporary romance, but oh boy was I wrong! And I loved being wrong in this case! The plot thickened as the story went on, and there were so many factors and so many secrets – damn Liam’s father was sure an interesting fellow back in the day! Add a heavy dose of action and sexual tension, and you’ve got yourself a bomb ready to go BOOM and cover you with feels!
Liam was amazing! Every time he opened his mouth, I swooned. With almost every line that came from his mouth, I was like “Yeah, dude, keep destroying IRL guys for me, I mean, fuck, thank you, why not?!”. It was that intense!
Charla was a bit too much at times – but given her background and her family, I had to see things from her point of view, and I couldn’t really blame her. I loved how devoted and loyal she was, and her kindness never overshadowed her survival instincts. Girl was willing to help anyone who needed her help, but don’t get her wrong – she’ll take a swing with a baseball bat at you if you come at her!
Now I’m anxiously waiting for the next book in the series – and please tell me the “other son” will get his own bok, too! He was way too good-looking and fine to be left alone! Although, if I had to take a pick, I would choose Ronan any day of the week – dude does weird things to my undies with all this attitude he has going on, I tell ya!
