When I first started reading I didn't feel much chemistry between Lane and Tristan. He was somewhat demanding with her, and being that she left an abusive marriage, I didn't like how he was portrayed. Slowly though I felt the passion they had for each other, and Tristan's unique use of maraschino cherries, had me craving for a drink! Mix in some suspense, the involvement of the family in the storyline, a wonderful epilogue and it made for an enjoyable read.
Would have been 4 stars or more except the h has a few tstl moments that got the h/H shot and almost killed - that irritated me, it was so unnecessary.
The sex scenes were just hot in this book:)
3.5 stars.

Wild Irish #3 is definitely one of my favorites of the series. Lane and Tristan are a great pair. Lane, the heroine, was in an unhappy, turned abusive marriage and she would go to the Collins' pub every Wednesday night. She and Tristin strike up a friendship. He was madly in love with her but never acted inappropriately towards her. The night she finally decides to leave her husband, he beats her and she winds up in the hospital. Tristan goes to the hospital the next morning to check on her only ...more
Love this family, thoroughly enjoyed the story and I can't wait for more! It is nice to read a story where the hero is so devoted, but also fully supportive. Tristan wants to give Lane everything in the world, but understands that it doesn't mean she is dependent or needy. Lane is trying to be independent and struggles to trust, both in Tris and herself. Her past is a stumbling block, but they get through it and the whole family is together for their Happy Ending! I need to keep reading this ser ...more

So far I can't stand to put the books down , they just keep getting better and better each book . Lane had been coming in the pub every wed for awhile and with Tris he got to know her very well and they became best friends . Til the day she didn't show up and he got worried something was wrong. Lane had been married the whole time he had know her but knew she was very unhappy . Til the day he found her in the hospital from being beat by her husband James. From that day on he told her he would al ...more

I'm completely hooked on this sexy, fun series!! I loved Tristan & Lane! Oh, I'll never look at a maraschino cherry the same way!!

I wouldn't have read this series if it wasn't for Karla's fantastic reviews. So big thanks to her!!
This was book three and it was about the character I was most interested in. Sadly, it was a let down. This sibling had a bad storyline and the love interest was a stupid idiot. Ugh, I know that's harsh, but in the beginning of the book when in the process of leaving her husband he beats her so badly that she almost dies. She runs off to LA for a year and has the lawyers handle all the divorce stuff. Flash forward 11 some months. Her ex husband isn't in prison. Why? Whatever. She gives him her c ...more
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 one of my favorites in the series. Now I understand why Tristan was surly in the first book, it's because of Lane Bryce who left him – and now returned. They've been friends and saw each other only on Wednesdays, and Tristan was really sweet he never made moves on her because she

Memorable Scenes:
- Tristan and Lane working behind the bar together > talk about sizzling sexual tension
- Lane and Tristan's first time > *fans self*

domestic abuse, friends-to-lovers, light spanking,

Tristan 'Tris' Collins is the bartender in the family-run Collins pub. He’s chivalrous, headstrong and gruff but very charming and sweet too. He carries his heart on his sleeve and is commanding in the bedroom.

Lane Bryce is a nurse. She’s sweet, witty, independent an
Lane was in an abusive relationship, her husband destroyed what little was left of her confidence after growing up in foster care until one night she decided to leave him. When he found out he beat her badly. She left town for a year after that. Until she couldn't run anymore from her friendship and attraction for Tristan and came back home.
Tristan was destroyed when he saw Lane on that hospital bed and even more when she ran away for a full year. He fell in love with her, but he stayed away bec
Another excellent story by Ms. Carr, and a great installment in the Wild Irish series, Waiting for Wednesday is Tristan Collins's story. He's the eldest of the Collins sons, and tends bar at the family pub. (His twin, Killian, is serving overseas.) Not an especially social person, he does befriend one of the people who becomes a Wednesday regular at the bar, Lane Bryce. She's a nurse, and comes in after her shift on Wednesdays to unwind a bit before heading home. While he knows she's married and ...more

My Review:
Lane & Tristan were friends for a couple of years. Every Wednesday night, she would come visit him in the bar after her nursing shift. Since she was married, they were never more than friends although Tristan was extremely drawn to her and Lane was in an unhappy marriage. Finally, Lane asked her husband for a divorce which landed her in the hospital when he didn't take the news well. Tristan found her there and was devastated
It’s Wednesday and Tristan Collins works at his family’s Pub, like he does every Wednesday. He has been in a foul mood for a while because Wednesday evenings were the one time a week when is good friend Lane would come and visit with him. Lane left town without a word about a year ago and Tristan is finally ready to believe that she won’t be coming back. Tristan is looking forward to closing the bar any minute and he becomes annoyed when the door opens and he has to serve another customer. He lo ...more
I think I like this one the most so far.

I think it also felt the most genuine, and the most real... even if the end was a bit fantastical. (view spoiler)

Yup, we finally know why Tris was always so cranky. (Well, I figured out he was heart broken in the first book, but I'm clever that way.)

Lane was... NORMAL. She wasn't tr

This is Tristan and Lane's story. Lane would come to the pub every Wednesday like clockwork and sit and talk to Tris or Tristan. She was married so he knew she was off limits and never pushed her on it, She was in an abusive relationship and while he listened he never told her what to do until the end he finally suggested she leave her husband if she as unhappy,

One Wednesday she did not show up and Tri finally found out she was in the hospital beaten to the inch of her life by her husband. She p
Short and Sweet! This was a great short read. So far I have loved all the books in this series.
Lane having survived an emotionally and physically abusive marriage was inspiring. She did take off to discover herself, but ended up right in Tristan Collin's arms. I love the emotions between the two of them There was a lot less fighting with themselves and more admitting what they wanted.
Now on to the the next one.

I read this as part of the box set of the first 4 books.

I may never look at a cherry the same again. I really enjoyed this book because aside from it having some great scenes between Tris and Lane it touched on a very important subject of abuse. I felt like this one had layers to it that kept me interested. I also loved Tris's character and think Lane was a good contrast for him.
Pamela Lunder
Loved this story. Loved sweet Lane. Poor girl had a bad childhood and then a bad marriage. Tristen just wants to love and protect her. Love how she ended up saving him in the end. Can't wait to read Killian's story next
I keep falling more and more in love with these stories and the characters and specially The Collins family.
Lane always goes every Wednesday to the pub the relax and talk with Tristan who worked the bar. When she doesn't appear one night he calls her and finds out that she's in the hospital and that her husband put her there after trying to leave him. She disappears the next day and comes back one year after. Lane is divorced and is looking for a job and a place to stay. For Tristan seeing Lane
I have loved the entire series so far. Waiting for Wednesday, book 3 of the Wild Irish series, was enthralling. Tristan Collins and Lane Bryant have a complicated friendship that ultimately becomes much more. Tristan is open, honest with his emotions, and extremely protective of Lane. Lane is fighting her inner demons regarding trust and love after escaping a loveless & abusive marriage.

This book is intense and funny... sexy and loving. I laughed on one page and cried like a baby on others.

I can't say enough about this series!
I want to be a part of this family.
Sexy, emotional and perfect in every way.
Highly recommend.
Stephanie Killen
I just love this series!! Tristan and Lane are so sweet together! What an amazing adventure we went on in this book. Great work!

I haven't read the first two in the series, but now I'll have to. Love the writing style of this author.
––––•(-•The Insomniac Book Hoarder•-
Read book 5 of the series before reading this,but still this book is pretty good standalone read. One of the reasons Im not following the right progression of the Wild Irish series is that I want to read about certain stories within the series. Preferably one where in the hero is harbouring intense feelings towards the heroine. For one I want to read about books where in our hero is demonstrating, seducing our heroine, and this book definitely gives us that.

I want my very own Tristan Collins to

I love big handsome Men. Love this book.
Tristan wasn't really a compelling character, I liked him well enough, he was kinda..... boring in comparison to his older siblings. Lane wasn't all that exciting either, and while these two certainly complimented each other, they weren't necessarily strong on a personality side. They ended up in some intense situations, but it didn't make my heart beat any faster because you knew they would make it through and be okay
An okay read, ho hum is probably the best descripition
Tristan meets Lane when she starts to come to pub every Wednesday for her usual glass of white wine. I love that Tris and Lane are such good friends before Lane was attack and went missing for a year. Great story of learning of trust and true love not just romantic love but family love which is never ending. Great HEA especially now Tristan twin is home.
The story of Tris and Lane was another fun outing with the Collins family. I liked the play with Tris and Lane and could totally relate to Lane's life lesson of feeling strong and independent but also understanding that allowing someone you love to take care of you doesn't weaken you as a strong woman.
