Mismatched (The Irish Matchmaker, #1)
Oh, the desire to say all of the silly phrases we, Americans, think are Irish right now...I will not. First, because I have more discipline than that and second, because I have learned well from my Mentor of all things Irish, Mo... never to feck around with that shite.
This was a very sweet and fun story done by accomplished authors. They took two friends from college...different from each other but bonded for all eternity. One was a granddaughter to ...more
Erin is left with only half of the Irish pub that she's worked so hard to bring back to life. Her late grandmother leaves the oth ...more
Forget green beer, the best way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is a hottie with an Irish brogue. So in preparation of March 17th I snuggled up with not one, but two Irish charmers in Mismatched.
The start of Erin and Ridlee’s story, while cute, was a bit slow. I like my romance with substance, and a good backstory goes a long way, but I felt a lot of the first 1/3 of the novel was a bit jumbled together. The story surrounding Erin and her pub back in Boston (her grandmother kicked the bucket and...more
I'm not sure, I think for the most part, this book just isn't completely my cup of tea.
It was really hard to get into and I actually only started to enjoy it after about 40-50%. That's a long time before I actually liked it. The Irish language made it harder for me. there's also a bit of insta-love mixed in and I feel like there's not really an end to the story. I want to know what happens to Donan. But I guess that's reserved for the next book.
Anyhoo, It was an okay read and I am curio ...more
I just didn't feel it. I wasn't even sure what it was... I just couldn't deal with it.
So just put it aside- I had a couple of let's struggle through it books before that. I simply just couldn't struggle through another one.
Then more than a week later I picked it up again. And wonder of wonders suddenly this was less of a chore and way more fun.
The first half of this seemed so cliche. The whole insta-lust....
Ridley's view of Ire ...more
The humor of Mismatched is awesome. I laughed so much while reading. I especially loved the all the talk about Big Dick. You see, Big Dick, is a horse ...more
Mismatched is a love story filled with humor, romance, and all that legal mumbo jumbo I can't wrap my head around any way. The first lines caught my attention from the very beginning, and at times I found myself tearing through the book with a fierce need to know what happened next. Our main characters Erin a ...more
- I did not particularly understand why was it a dual POV from two friends? I mean, I'd get it if they both found love and stuff, but Ridlee's pov basically just complimented Erin's (which could have been told from Erin's point of view) and her love interest in the book didn't even pan out.
- the book was supposed to be about finding the person who's the owner of the bar and buy him out. It just felt like that for most of the b ...more
Erin has spent the last few years working her ass off in a pub owned by her grandmother in downtown Boston. She has pretty much single handedly turned the whole business around and growing it into a successful bar. The Pot 'O' Gold pub is where her future is. When her grandmother p ...more
Now I just want to keep reading to find out what happens with Ridlee and Donal and how does Erin and Michael fair.
When is the next book?
Now, it was a little bit harder to get into this one - due to a funk I was in from another book I read before - but it picks up and gets you sucked in, after a while. It also takes you to Ireland, making you feel like you're there, seeing what the characters are.
Erin and Ridlee go to Ireland, where they meet two sexy Irish men. The book is told from dual POV, so we get to know both girls' feel ...more
This book is Mismatched written by Elle Casey. I have not yet read anything by Elle that I didn't love, and this book is no exception. It's about Erin, who's Grandmother has passed away and left her HALF of the pub that she has been running singlehandedly for the last several years, and her best friend Ridlee, who has just completed her training as an attorney, and their trip to Ireland. The ladies are in search of the other half owner of the pub so they can buy him out a ...more
I enjoyed this book even though I wasn't sure at the beginning as I have to figure out the Irish translation but once I did I fell in love With Erin and Ridlee. Erin is strong,independent, and sexy woman that has inherited her bar from grandma only to find out she has to share it. Erin and her best friend go on an adventure to find this partner all the way in Ireland. Adventures are happening and love finds you when you aren't looking.. This is a very good read and makes me wa ...more
I'm Not sure how to rate this book. I liked it but it was.....different. First it dual POV, but it the two friends POV not the male and female characters. In the end it mostly Erin story. IDK I felt it ending pretty fast too. With a Happy for now ending.....and what happened to Ridlee and her HEA? IDK it was like it was two books(Erin and Ridlees) then at the end it only told the ending of one of the stories??? Also I didn't feel the deep love or connection between them either?!?!
I was pretty disappointed I'm afraid to say... there were some genuinely laugh out loud funny parts to this book and I have loved Elle Casey's other novels but I found this one painfully slow...i nearly gave up quarter way thru but I hate giving up on a book so persevered...sorry Elle this was not for me.
I loved the characters, all of them. So much depth to them and you can tell that we didn't even find out about them all, which makes them more human and makes me want to read more. Learn more about them. I could totally see this become a tv show. I would watch the crap outta that show!
