I have read and enjoyed every single book in the Tear Asunder and Unyielding series. "Shattered by You" and "Perfect Ruin" are two of my all time favorites and I have re-read them many times...

So when I found out that Nashoda was releasing a new book...I did my little happy dance ;) I think I even stalked her a little :P

I'm at a loss on what to even say about this book. By now I think everyone knows that I'm a sucker for a strong, protective hero and Deaglan was just *swoon* with all of his crazy possessiveness over Eva. I couldn't get enough of it and it had me loving the both of them because for every Alpha thing he did, Eva pushed right back with her own strength. These two were amazing together and they definitely rank high on my list of favorite couples fro

IRISH CROWN: Is a standalone romance novel by new to me author Nashoda Rose.

It all started with a one night stand that wasn’t supposed to go any further than that night. He knew she was a ‘rare’ kind of girl but he didn’t want any commitments and she doesn’t belong in his world.

But the morning after he wakes up and tells her he has ‘shit to do’ and basically throws her out the door.

That s like written in stone...

It all started with a fan-fucking-tastic one-night of marvelous sex....and it all ended with his words:
Pet, I got shit to do.

Eva couldn't be THAT wrong about a guy, right?!
I mean, her senses couldn't fooled her like THAT, again...right?!
God dammit...he was THAT perfect.

Irish Crown is a breathtaking contemporary romance by one of my all-time favorite authors Nashoda Rose. With a perfect blend of passion, action, and tender romance, Irish Crown is one captivating read. Eva is a responsible hardworking nurse who would never dream of spending a night with a stranger. And yet, Deaglan Kane is one tatted bad boy that she cannot resist. After spending one night with Deaglan, she never thought she would see him again. When some unexp

I looked up at Deaglan and I finally stepped off the cliff. I had no idea where it led, or when I’d land, but right now it was in the arms of Deaglan Kane.

To say that I've been mildly impatient to get my grabby little hands on this book would be a HUGE understatement. For those that have read Kept From You , then you'll recall Kite's mysterious and sexy cousin, Deaglan. And for those that haven't, not to worry, because this is easily enjoyed as a standalone.

I enjoyed this one quite a lot. Although it lost a star for the completely pointless scene with the chick the hero had a ONS with. Like, honestly, do authors have a checklist or something? Because what exactly was the purpose of adding a scene with some skank he slept with when it added nothing and went absolutely NOWHERE? Lord, I am SO tired of this kind of shit in books...the other thing, which wasn't really an issue per se, but this author was drinking some serious KA kool-aid because part o

Irish Crown is the first book I read by this author, Nashoda Rose, and I have to say, I did enjoy it, even with a few niggles. I also felt this had a KA vibe to it, right down to the hot alpha lingo.

Both MC were very likeable, and even though Deaglan was a hot alpha bad-a**, he also had a
sweet and tender side to him. Eva was very sweet, and but was very gutsy when she needed to be. Deaglan and Eva were both dealing with a violent pasts, yet it seemed they needed each other to overcome

The synopsis of this book intrigued me and I looked forward to reading it.
It was interesting enough, but nothing really sucked me in. I felt the writing was too simplistic and there wasn't enough character development in my opinion. On the plus side the story line was gripping. But it just fell a little flat for me. I put it down a couple times before I was able to finally finish it. Overall, just an okay read for me.

In short:

What a book it was AMAZING !! Ive been waiting for a book from this author is ages. So when I knew this book was coming I was so so happy. Deaglan and Eva's story is just so good. They have both had there fair share of bad times and Deaglan isn't the easiest guy to deal with. But this sexy Irish guy had me melting from the first page. He is super alpha and so protective. He doesn't do relationships he just does the once rule. But meeting Eva had him in a tail spin she wa

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Ms. Rose did it again. Another amazing book.

Deaglan was super HAWT and yummy, and a wee bit of an ar$e sometimes. But when he got his head out of his ar$e, amazing. Eva never backed down, but she sure could overthink stuff. There was a seriously nasty bad guy to take care of. Her friends are amazing and I hope they all get HEA (maybe with his friends).

Now let's talk about his friends...It's the boys of RIOT. Yep, Deck and all his peeps. Plus Deaglan knows Tear Asunder and Ma
The hero is too KA like for me, barely talks but grunts and expects the heroine to do his bidding. I can't stand it, so this is a DNF for me.

I am not exactly sure how long “Irish Crown” by Nashoda Rose was on my reading schedule – but even after the first release was postponed I could not bring myself to take it off the list. Usually I mark these books in Goodreads and clear my reading schedule but I read a bunch of books by this author and I knew this book would be worth keeping it on that list.

Having it there ensured that I would keep in mind to check upon the status regularly and you can imagine my joy when about two weeks ago I

Nashoda Rose has done it AGAIN! She has brought her A game to the table and the gavel has been slammed down! Damn girl I missed your writing so much I miss those fun loving boys from Tear Asunder but you brought it with Deaglan.

Deaglan is a man who is a hard man who has had a hard life. So he lives life like no ones business by having one night stands being a manwhore who does not give a shizz about anyone but himself and getting off. Then he has a one night stand with a fiesty woman and she cha

Reminded me of a Kristen Ashley novel and the hero talked like a KA hero.

I never understand when authors make out a character is Irish yet have them speaking like an American. Deaglan (weird name)! Grew up in Ireland and still spends a lot of time there yet he says Mom. The Irish are more likely to say Ma. He also says asshole not arsehole! Basically he has no irishness about him. At the beginning he calls her 'pet' a lot but then for rest of book it's baby until the end when he's saying Gaelic

GAH!!! Nashoda Rose has legit dropped the mic on one of the most amazing stories she has ever written!!! This story was intense, mysterious, sexy af and so gripping. Deaglan was fiery and protective and so impressively alpha I could not contain my excitement! The explosive banter between them was on another level and I seriously could not get enough. And that prologue?! Good Lord you're not ready for that glorious gutpunch. I was addicted to every word!

I really liked this book. Yes there are parts that upset me or I didn't like but you definitely feel the book. I want a man like Deaghlan for me, for my friends, for my daughter, and you get the gist. At first I was like no way but as time went on you felt his love and his protective tendencies. Eva is a nurse and goes on a never done before one night stand. It was awesome but then he kicked her out before she even woke up. I wasn't sure at that point but then it kicks in. She

I love Rose's novels. Had I known this novel was a spin-off of the Unyielding series, I would have pre-ordered! I love the men of the Unyielding series. I can't wait for the next book.

I discovered Nashoda Rose in January of 2014 when I was introduced to her Tear Asunder series. It blew my mind and I've been a big fan ever since. I can't get enough of her alpha males who don't need all the words to get their point across very clearly. I can hear them in my head and just melt into a puddle of goo every time...sigh.

STORY: 3 Stars
OVERALL: 4 Stars

A one night stand between Deaglan and Eva develops into much more. Definitely not a novel premise.... The self-proclaimed, one night only, Irish bachelor quickly changes his ways for Eva, basically resulting in an Insta-Love which I found difficult to believe. Although this book wasn’t painful to read/listen to, compared to other books I’ve read by Ms. Rose, it falls short.

Hi Nashoda, it’s been too long! I’m so grateful to you for the bringing me Deaglan Kane. My ovaries and I can’t thank you enough. From his gaelic brogue to his devilishly handsome face, it’s no wonder Eva found herself defenceless to his charm.

I was further endeared by his protective, alpha ways and found myself weak in the knees over his hard as steel exterior juxtaposed to his sweet and charming side.

I loved the combination of action and intrigue and with all his muscles Deaglan

DNF at 22%

One Night stand then the guy get her to live rudely. THEN he play the angry guy because she didn't tell him she was mugged, he don't let her talk and decide everything for her whatever she says. Of course she can't resist because he's so good in bed ...
For me that's just a prick not an alpha male. And after what she went through it's a bit hard to accept her attitude.
Either way it's a book i would've continued if the story was interesting/ engaging but not in this case.
Not for me.

I’m a huge fan of Nashoda Rose’s Tear Asunder series as well as her Unyielding series. There’s just something about Rose’s no bullshit alpha males and how they claim and protect those they love, refusing to allow anything to touch them and fighting like hell for payback if anything does. Every single one of her heroes are broken in some way, but they’ve learned to channel the rage and torment that consumes them making bad men pay and working to be better men for the women who own them, body and ...more

A fast read. Overall enjoyable.

Lurved Deaglan - possessive and bossy? Slurp. Liked Eva well enough, not annoyed by her feistiness. The writing was good. The twist could be seen a mile away, yet it still confused me, mostly because I didn't see it as necessary to the storyline. I think it would've been better if the characters ran parallel storylines that crashed together in a more dramatic way??

This is a standalone, but I felt I was missing something in having not read previous interconnected s
