Publication date: May 11th 2017
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance
When your luck runs out, do you run away—or do you stay and fight?
Let’s get one thing straight. I am not your typical girl. Sure I’ve got all the parts, but I’ve been a stubborn, irreverent tomboy since the womb, as my Irish father would proudly attest. Despite my Irish blood, I’ve had a bit of bad luck here and there—I recently trusted the wrong guy and got derailed in my professional pursuits. But I’ve bounced back. With my shields firmly in place, I thought nothing, or no one, could touch me again. Until he did. And he just might make this tomboy do the girliest thing in the world—fall head over heels in love. Of all the damn luck…
I’m a pretty lucky guy. I have a phenomenal family, a career I love, and I’m building a brand-new life back in my hometown. And, not to be a jerk about it, but I do more than all right with the ladies. Everything’s been going according to plan—like I said, I’m a lucky guy.
That was, until my luck ran out.
Until I met the girl I call “Irish.”
Irony can go kiss my a$$.

Bailey is not our typical female lead and you guys I fucking loved it. I am a tad more girly than Bailey, I mean Dirty Dancing is my favorite movie. But I’ll take jeans and chucks over a dress and heels any day. I’m a baseball fan and prefer beer to wine. So I got Bailey, I understood her annoyance with Fiona and Laney.
It was nice to have a character who kept her shit to herself. She didn’t advertise her business even if her friends and family couldn’t help doing it for her. The exchanges she had with Jake were interesting. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect. I mean hello hot and heavy and then Bailey is cold and distant. I really liked that we discovered her at the same time Jake did. We didn’t know something he didn’t.
I won’t spoil it, but kudos for bit where we expected a character to jump to conclusions and they didn’t. #majorpoints Finally we aren’t yelling NO, it’s not what you think!
I really want more of them, but I guess I always do and that’s what a good book does. It leaves you wanting more.
