Excellent! A complete story in a sweet little package. Opposites attract when the rocker, Sky, meets the folk-singer, Teagan, but they are so perfect together. Fantastic funny dialogue, a sweet passionate romance, a delightful Irish family, and even a tiny bit of suspense, all in this charming novella. One more sister and four brothers to go, what a way to countdown the week! I'm waiting on Wednesday.

Just a side-note, the first book had more of a BDSM theme, whereas this one had one scene with

I loved how the author paired a rock star and a folk singer for this 2nd installment to the Wild Irish series. And I enjoyed it as much as the first, but for different reasons. The first book in the series has a BDSM tone with a very intense Alpha Hero. However, the hero in this book being a rock star who does not fit the typical mold intrigued me. He's not into drugs or alcohol, and realizes after spending time with Teagan that he wants a real relationship instead of bouncing from bed to bed. S ...more

This is Sky and Teagan's storey. I have to say I don't like their names, and I kept getting mixed up on who was the male when they were talking.

Controlling virgin meets oversexed Rock Star.

BTW Sky is the man. :p
3.5 Stars

I just have to say how much I love Teagan and her spirit, old roots, etc. I am a hippie at heart and a folk music fanatic, so instantly I connected with her. Now, that's not to say I think she was dumb at times.

To be honest, I have no idea why people can't say no and actually mean it. Then you have the guys pressuring, tricking their minds, pushing a little bit further closer to the boundary. It's not fair. She says no and you should respect that, not push her no into a yes.

Well, that one worked for me! I really liked Teagan and Sky, their romance was both sweet and hot. I loved that they both respected each other and they didn't push each other into things the other didn't want. This was a quick read, but it didn't feel that way. It was nice that time elapsed and the relationship didn't develop literally over night.

When I finish a book with literally a smile on my face, it is a good sign. I really loved this sweet story. The famous rocker at the edge of kicking off his solo career + the folksy songwriter who simply plays in the family pub= MAGIC!

Fantastic scenes between these two with absolutely sizzling chemistry. Their debates and sniping at each other was just as hot as when they were kissing and so much more. Teagan is a 26 year old virgin and I

I liked this story despite the rapidity with which everything happened. It's short so don't get to know the characters really well but there's enough to root for them. And this series revolves around a big family. I love that. :)

Article first published as eBook Review: Ruby Tuesday by Mari Carr on Blogcritics.

Ruby Tuesday is book two in Mari Carr's Wild Irish series, and as much as I enjoyed the first one, I liked this even better. Each book takes a member of the Collins family, and this one deals with Teagan. She works at her family's Irish pub and sings there, too - she's also content with her lot.

Everything changes, however, when the lead singer of world-famous rock band The Universe, Sky Mitchell, walks into the bar

Sky Mitchell the lead singer for the rock group The Universe is taking a much needed break from his tour in order to figure out his next step, either re-sign with the group or go solo. He is pushing towards going solo. Teagan Collins is a singer songwriter and performs in her family's pub a couple of times a week in addition to teaching a pre-school music class and going to the local nursing home a couple of times a week to share her music.

Barely 3 stars. A sweet story with erotic sex. This was ok but nothing special - too predictable.

Teagan plays guitar and sings folk songs in her family’s Irish pub. She likes writing music and performs one of her original songs. Sky is a rock star, traveling incognito, trying to avoid the paparazzi. He came to town for a few weeks for some quiet time to write music. He happens to be in the pub when Teagan performs. He likes her song and asks her to be a cowriter, working with him to

Tegan Collins is content with her life. She sings in her family’s Pub, she teachers music to kids and volunteers at the senior center. Sky Mitchell is a rock star hiding out in Maryland.

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 Teagan's story and she's the second eldest. She's the hippie, talented singer and songwriter, who catches the attention of Sky Mitchell from “The Universe” band. He's hiding from the paparazzi and hanging out at Pat's Irish Pub. It's amusing how she didn't know about him while he

Mari Carr's Ruby Tuesday is the second in the Wild Irish series, each focusing on one of the Collins siblings. This is Teagan's story. She's a talented singer and songwriter, but has focused on helping the family, and enjoys occasionally performing at Pat's, her family's pub. One night, Sky Mitchell, the lead singer for the sensational band The Universe, on hiatus to clear his head, hears her set and is blown away.

Ruby Tuesday (Wild Irish #2) by Mari Carr is an Adult Erotic Contemporary Romance, with a dash of Mystery.
It is very well written and flows smoothly.
Both Teagan (Ruby) and Sky (Mitch) are great characters. I found their story interesting and the love scenes were very steamy and very different. However, I think more intensity should have been put in their interactions to each other.
The other characters involved in the story didn't really seem to exist. This took away from the 'Mystery' portion

Shelves: bdsm, irish-bdsm
This is mainly a sweet romance between second eldest of the Irish American Collins family, namely Teagan and rock star Skye, real name Mitch. I found it amazing that there'd be a 26 year old virgin holding out for love but there she was. My views on Teagan's determined wait for Mr Right to come along are very mixed between admiration but more sympathy for wasted years in the prime of her life...each to their own I suppose. I don't see this as a BDSM read really except one incidence which makes i ...more

Did not expect that - Usually in a series, the books all have a similar theme. Like, if the first one is BDSM then all of them will be. So, I was expecting some more of that after the first book. But nope, that didn't really happen.
This series is shaping up to be about each individual child in the Collins' family. And, refreshingly, they're not "all" big closet D/s 'ers. (Although, the sisters do seem to like their booties touched. Whatever, I ain't judging. LOLOL)

What happens when a Rock and Roll artists falls in lust with a folk artist?
You end up with Ruby Tuesday. This is one of my favorite books from Mari Carr. She wrote it the way i would love for it to play out. Hot Rocker dude sees funky dressed folk artist who happens to be playing her own music and he really likes the music. She doesn't know who he is and when she does find out she doesn't fall all over him. LOL bet that does his ego some good.

Teagan and Sky made a bet and they the bet plays out

This was a short, sexy read. Teagan Collins works in her family's pub, sings and writes songs and volunteers with preschoolers and seniors. She's somewhat of a hippie and prefers folk music to pop music. So she has no idea who Sky Mitchell is when he comes into her pub. And she definitely not prepared when the famous rock star likes her song and wants her to join him in writing new material for his next solo album. She even less prepared when Sky takes a physical interest in her - she's a virgin ...more

This was a sweet story. Sky being a rock star and Teagan a "hippie"/"gypsy" was a good pair.
Teagan didn't like to step out of her box. Change was hard for her. But she loves to sing and write music. Sky is a burnt out rock star, ready for a change. He wants to be solo. The pair help each other along the way. And their relationship evolves into something amazing.
I really liked this story. I liked the first one too. Mari Carr is becoming one of my favorite authors.

I brought this as part of the bundle that included the first four books. There was more of a storyline then there was in book one. I enjoyed trying to figure out who was behind all the troubles. I think the contrast between Sky and Teagan was great. Plus in honor of keeping up with the first book it had some great scenes. Can't wait to get to know the rest of the family.

The setting is an Irish pub owned by Pat Collins and his family. His daughter Teagan and rock star Sky are making beautiful music together. Just what the Irish do so well.
