The seventh and final book in the Wild Irish series was Chad’s story as much as it was Sean’s. Not only are they in love with the same girl, Lauren, but they have feelings for each other. This was by far the most intense book in the series. I adored Sean throughout the previous books and was happy to see him reveal his true self. He was so deserving of finding love, albeit not in the traditional way. Same goes for Chad, I was glad to see him come out of his shell, and admit that he was capable ...more

An amazing, sexy, emotional end to this awesome series! I have spent the last week reading this series and I'm so sad for it to end.

Gotta thank Karla, her fantastic reviews inspired me to read these books!!

Ok, so, I can't really think of where to start with this review. I'm giving it 4 stars ONLY because the meaning behind the story is actually heart melting, and ALSO, because I loved the Epilogue and I cried. It was so lovely.

I am troubled ONCE AGAIN! I mean, ok, writers like to fantasize about many things, situations, events...well, anything; I guess that's the whole purpose of writing a book, BUT COME ON!!!! who lives in a relationship OF 3! Does a woman REALLY can love two men at the same time
NOTE: I've read all 7 books in this series before writing this review, so I might make some comparisons every now and then. Even though I'll mention this in the reviews: the sex scenes are guaranteed flaming hot.

This is the final book in the Wild Irish series and what a blast it was! Sean has been dating Lauren for years and they decided to move in to their own place. Chad has always been on the sidelines but Lauren secretly lusted after him. What's amazing is Sean knows about this and doesn't m

Mari Carr does it again. I have been anxiously awaiting Sean's story and it does not disappoint. This was a very emotional read. It is not one of those that everyone falls in bed and lives happily ever after right away. The character's all struggle with their feeling for each other, especially Sean and Chad. They do have to work for it, but the ending makes it all worth while. I'm sad to see this series end, but I have a feeling we will hear from the Collins clan again at some point.
Awesome book! Perfect read!

Memorable Scenes:
- The scene in which Chad confessed to kissing Lauren and Sean's reaction that followed > very powerful and pivotal scene.
- The baby shower (not spoiling who's shower) > both emotional (serious talk between Lauren and Keira) and LOL funny
- The 3 Sundays > some of the best ménage sex scenes I've read since I started reading erotic romance

My Review:
Mari most definitely saved the best story for last. I loved this one, but I have no idea how to write this review without giving away plot points that you really need to discover yourself as you read the book.

Lauren & Sean are in a committed relationship and have been for 2 years. Chad is Sean's best friend and has been for their entire lives. All three have just moved into a house together. Chad and Lauren are both grad stu

Any Given Sunday was an incredible story about trust and love. It was refreshing to see the back story spanned years and made the three main characters very good friends before becoming lovers.

We are introduced to Lauren and Sean as their relationship has just reached the next level. While all the time Chad is a main part of their lives; he is suffering from the love that he feels can’t be expressed or returned.

Everything comes to a head when Lauren and Chad, psychology students, are given some

ANY GIVEN SUNDAY was a short, steamy read that captured my attention early on and held it. I really enjoyed the push/pull between what their heads was telling them to do and their hearts. Ms. Carr did an awesome job of showing that conflict. And to be honest the smexing was pretty hot. Very hot.

Despite my enjoyment, I did have a couple quibbles with ANY GIVEN SUNDAY. The first being that ANY GIVEN SUNDAY was overrun with characters from the other books in this series. I wish that these encounter

Sean and Chad have been friends forever. They are currently roommates and always have been so different from each other, yet alike in some ways. They both like their friend Lauren, yet is Sean who makes the first move and begins a relationship with her. When Sean and Lauren move in together, they rent a room to Chad, as Chad and Lauren are both still studying in their psychology doctorates. A project from class prompts them to change their relationship to a sexual one. All three of them. Sunday ...more

This one annoyed me, but not because of anything it really did.
It annoyed me because at the end, I realized that (well, not so much realized, but it was spelled out to us)
Sunday's child is bonnie and blithe, and good and gay.

It was that reason that Mari Carr made Sean bi? REALLY? That annoyed me.
I think I would have been happier if Sean's story was any other day of the week.

I liked Sean, I knew he was either gay or bi since book 1 (I knew something was up with that punch to the face he was sport

Upon reading the blurb about this, the final Wild Irish tale, I was more than mildly irritated. I mean, seriously? Two menage relationships in a group of seven siblings was bad enough, but both siblings in a set of two as well? Ugh! To say the least, I started in with this one convinced I was going to be giving several less stars than the six previous.
Now, with that off my chest, and my rating already applied, I will admit that my immediate disdain was unfounded. The inner workings of this menag

Maybe I had higher hopes for this one. Or maybe my opinion is skewed because I interrupted reading it for another highly anticipated book. But this one didn't do it for me. I'm not saying I hated it -- it is the Collins family, after all; you just love them -- I just didn't love this book. In most of her books, there was lots of tension, lots of build up to the "moment" that made the book. In this one, there was tension and build up... but I was almost let down that the climax (literally) didn't ...more

This is the 7th and last book in the series and I'm a little sad there will be no more stories about the Collins family. I'd like to think there really are families out there like them. I have enjoyed reading about them and their HEAs. This was Sean, the baby of the family's story and it was a good one. I thought the author did a great job with the "coming out" part of the story and gave us a glimps of how hard it must be when you are afraid what your friends and family will think of you.

It is not often that I come across a story in a ménage a trois genre that has such a romantic thread throughout it. Any Given Sunday was a pleasant surprise for this reviewer. Not only are the characters very aware of each other’s feelings, they want to avoid hurting the relationship they share. Adding the entire Collins family into the tale meant there would be humor and fun to be found, but it was the love shared between Lauren, Sean, and Chad that touched my heart. Ms. Carr has impressed me ...more

Best friends & a girl, Sean & Lauren have been together for 2 yrs. Chad has always been a part of them, they don't know that he also wants her. What was the fight Sean & Chad had as teenagers about?

Will the Human Sexuality class Lauren & Chad are in help solve their problems? Light read about menage, soft BDSM & love. Some of the info talked about in this book has me wanting to go back & read the others in between Monday's child theme & this one. Read Saturday Night

Dang this sucks ...I so did not want for the books to end ! I have totally fallen in love with everyone in this series . Sean, Chad and Lauren have been friends for years but eventually Sean and Lauren moved more into a couple and it made Chad feel like a third wheel. Only thing was eventually Sean could see in Lauren that something was missing in her heart so as in him . He knew Lauren wanted Chad as bad as he did but he didn't want to tell her that, that was his secret to keep. You want a good ...more

Absolutely loved it! Pain,love, revelations. They all came together in this book. I have loved the Collins family all along but I think that this book is my favorite. I just couldn't put the book down. The sexual tension between Sean, Lauren AND Chad was just unbelievable. And the utter joy I felt when they all came together as they were meant to had me wanting to read the book all over again.
Priscilla Robinson

This books focused more on feelings then in my opinion any other book. Sean the baby of the family is going through something and it was amazing to witness. I also loved that I finally found out why he was fighting in book one . The one thing I loved about this series was that I felt Mari Carr did a great job of bringing to life diverse characters that connected great together. This book was no different and I loved Sean's book.

I'v always loved Sean from start. Sean been I love with his bf chad for years but after chad makes it very clear nothing would happen he put his feelings aside and moves on with Lauren. They all move into a new house together and that's when cracks start to show in their friendship. I love how it shows the start of a weird but difficult start to this new open relationship. It seems really realistic to me. Great story and HEA.

I had a hard time transitioning Sean from teen in the first book to adult in this book. I wasn't that interested in him as a hero.

This is nothing against Mari's writing and storytelling since I do love her work. This is solely just my not being that into it. So for me the book was okay.

Maybe one day I can go back and re-read his story and enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed the others in the series.
Jul 13, 2013 Dar rated it it was amazing
This was the perfect ending to the series, and you knew, just knew, in book one that Sean was a lot deeper and complicated. Things have been hinted at during the preceding books, but to watch this love story, and it is a sweet and touching love story, with hot sex, come to fruition was extremely touching.
I think this one was my favorite of the series. I am a sucker for MMF and this was just so sweet watching them get together. It's like the writing is on the wall and some of the characters just need a slap up side their head.

But as in all the Collins' stories, it's the love of the family that always brings the tear to the eye. I want me a Collins' man!

Wow this story blew me away. Love sexy, sweet, compassionate Sean. Lauren is in love with two men and explores her desires to the fullest. Poor Chad had such a hard time coming to terms with his feelings. Such a great story and the best way to end the Collins siblings. Loved it.
