Review: KISS OF THE IRISH by Lauren Hawkeye!

My Review: This was just what I needed. This was an adorable, fun, contemporary read. After reading a couple books that bring some unnecessary drama, usually in the form of a sudden suspense angle, it was so relaxing and enjoyable to get something that was just a straightforward contemporary romance. First off, I loved Cian's name.. and I'll admit, I was super grateful that the author made sure to work the proper pronunciation into the story. 

I will say that the drama near the end was a little over the top. I get that tensions were high at the very end, but I think both Cian and Sarah blew things out of proportion. But fear not, fellow readers - the making up part of the story was definitely romantic.. not to mention very, very hot. This is the first book I've read by this author, but I will definitely be checking out more by her. Kiss of the Irish was one of those books that is a perfect day-off read, and I definitely recommend it.  

Cover Lovin': Someone open a window, it's getting awfully steamy in here...

Recommendation: No prior knowledge required. 

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5). A cute, one-sitting read. Cian and Sarah were adorable, and I'm considering planning a trip to Ireland in hopes that this kind of thing happens to me!

Happy Reading!

If Sarah Mercer had ever been asked to describe herself in one word, it would be sensible. After all, she had a steady job. Made prudent decisions. Was in what she though was a logical relationship. But when her fiance dumps her for an exotic dancer, Sarah decides it’s time to change…everything! The first thing on her agenda? To get out of town and take a three month trip to Ireland. She’d always been captivated by the Emerald Isle. And she’d heard that there was nothing like an Irishman with a sexy accent and eyes as devastatingly green as the country’s rolling hills to make a girl feel better. But maybe she shouldn’t have hooked up with her new landlord on the first night in town. Cian Murphy wasn’t supposed to be her type. His arms and chest were tattooed, and he had piercings everywhere. Still, he made her feel beautiful, sexy…alive for the first time in years. Falling for the Irish hottie was as natural as breathing. But figuring out what she’d do when it came time to leave? Not so easy...

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
