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?

FTC : I requested this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I requested this book because Cara McKenna writes amazingly filthy books. Honestly, if you haven’t read her stuff, and you like smoking hot books, she is an author you HAVE to try. This book was absolutely no different.

From the off-set, this book was about sex. These two know that they have no chance of a permanent relationship, that their time together is limited, so they just decide to take what time they have and make the most of it. What ensues is a fast-track relationship; lots of sex, dates and laughs. Of course, neither of them wants to think about their relationship expiration date…

I really enjoyed this one. It was a very hot novella with great characters and a solid plot. If anything, the only complaint is that I thought that the feelings within the relationship developed rather quickly and it left me a little unsatisfied. I recommend this one to fans of novella’s and erotic romance.

I enjoyed the plot of this one. I could totally buy the set up and the characters were fantastically well developed. I loved the independence and strength of Jamie and the fact that at no point was she giving anything up for a man. She wanted to have a holiday fling, to cleanse the bad taste left by the last relationship, but she wasn’t scared of how quickly her feelings develops. She was always leaving though, no matter what her feelings were; what she was going back was too important to miss. Connor is exactly the same. He never expects anything, isn’t even looking for something, but I loved the fact that he wasn’t afraid to show her how much he cared. He was hot, sexy and IRISH.

There is sooo much sex in this one. Cara McKenna writes fantastic, erotic scenes and, from the steamy sexual encounters on a pool table to the romantic sensual scenes, every single one made me shiver.

This is a hot little novella which is perfect for anyone looking for a holiday read with some heat.
