This is the third book in the Summerhaven Trio series from Katy Regnery. In this installment we have Ian Haven, who is the last of the Haven triplets to have his story told. What an emotional journey Ian's story was. I had anticipated that it would be considering in the first book we saw his alcoholism bring Ian to rock bottom. By the second story, he realized he needed help, and his sibling supported him along the way through the hard journey. In "Loving Irish" we learn what happened to bring I ...more

Oh my gawd, this story...THIS STORY!!!

I loved writing this book.
It was an effortless job.
Hallie and Ian deserved their happy ending.

Loving Irish was a charming second chance story. While each book could be read as a standalone, I definitely recommend going back and grabbing the first one, Fighting Irish. This series was a lot of fun and you don't want to miss a minute. From that first book, Ian Haven captivated my attention. I just knew his story would be something special. So here are three of my favorite things while I was reading this story:

It has been a long time since I have read a book that captured my attention so much that I finished it in one day. That is not to say I haven’t completely loved the other stories I’ve read, but Katy Regnery’s newest release, Loving Irish, from her Summerhaven Trio series, grabbed ahold of me and didn’t let go. I simply couldn’t stop reading Ian and Hallie’s story until I knew how it ended. In reading the synopsis of their romance, I anticipated that Ian and Hallie were going to deeply touch my h ...more

Hallie and Ian met as kids at camp. Hallie was a camper, while Ian worked at his family’s camp. It was first love, young love, until a mistake was made that caused Hallie to leave camp vowing never to see Ian again, and Ian to turn to a bottle to hide from his pain and regret.

Ten years later, Ian is in recovery, working his steps and active in several local AA groups. He is working to make amends to everyone he hurt with his addiction. While Ian is getting his life back in order, Halli

This second chance story was so endearing and I loved it. I’ve enjoyed this series from the beginning but I will say that ever since being introduced to Ian in book one his story was the one that I wanted the most.

I’m a sucker for stories that have angst, throw in a hero who is damaged and I’m like a kid in a candy store I can’t get enough.

I loved how this story was told going between past and present. I honestly felt for both of them throughout as they both have had their fair share to deal w

Loving Irish is the 3rd book in The Sumerhaven Trio series. The book was a sweet but emotional 2nd chance romance. The love they had as youths was captured perfectly to see where these two began and what they needed to do to mend their past and work towards a brighter future. You’ll definitely want to read the other’s in the series before beginning this.

I found Ian to be the type of character you want to reach in the book and give big hug to. Despite his long journey of fighting alcoho

Loving Irish is the third book in the awesome Summerhaven series. Ian struggles to overcome his demons on a daily basis, trying to find his place.

Scarred from her broken marriage and their jagged past, she resists, not wanting to be hurt yet again.

I almost skipped this book after being so disappointed in book 2. Thank goodness the 1st chapter was at the end of that book or I never would’ve read this gem!! This book felt so real, so relatable and was very sweet. I really loved the depiction of Ian’s recovery from alcoholism, especially how the 12 steps were woven into the story. The Irish sayings added throughout the book were a nice touch too. My only bone to pick was how some problems were resolved a little too perfectly - like the beaut ...more

4.5 stars!!!

I've been looking forward to reading Loving Irish ever since I started the first in this series. It was well worth the wait!! Ian and Halcyon's relationship will pull at your heartstrings. Of course Jenny was the WHOLE HEART of the book. There's something so special of an innocent child bringing people together and help them heal. This was a beautifully told story that will FOREVER be a Katy Regnery favorite.

Though both Ian and Hallie went through hellish 10 years I'd still call this book sweet and endearing. I don't think anything could have been done differently by both Ian and Hallie so maybe that's what life (or rather Katy ;)) was meant to show them or make them appreciate what they can find in each other even more.

The senior year Halcyon "Hallie" Gilbert came to the Summerhaven resort she was different, took her a bit but she was finally maturing and though Ian thought she was cute (as a frie

There's something magical about Katy Regnery's romantic storytelling. It's like I know to expect that beautiful happy ending, but I'm always surprised at how much I love the feels at the end of her books. You'd think I'd be used to it, but once again, Ian and Hallie's story gave me all the feels in the end.

Here we finally get Ian's story, the 3rd Haven triplet. We've been slowly witnessing his recovery from alcoholism, but now we get all the behind-the-scenes and the history leading up to this m

Loving Irish is everything you want from a second chance romance! It's a story with a couple that is given another chance to love and life. It's heartwarming, really sweet and soulful. I didn't think I could cherish it like Smiling Irish, which I totally recommend, but I was so wrong!

Ian had found the love of his life at seventeen but he made a terrible mistake and lost her. After that he drowned his sorrows in alcohol, he lost himself too. Ten years later

5 Star Review Loving Irish (The Summerhaven Trio #3) by Katy Regnery

This is Ian Haven and Hallie Gilbert’s story and is the third and final book in the trilogy and what a way to finish. Ian is the black sheep of the family and yet I really loved him.

Loving Irish is a second chance at love story which is fast becoming one of my favourite types of book to read. Ian and Hallie have not seen each other since they were 17 and to say Hallie is bitter is the understatement of the year.

There's this bubbly, happy feeling in my heart at the end of every Katy Regnery book. As far as romantic storytelling goes, Ms. Regnery is one of my queens, and there is no exception here. Loving Irish is a lovely second chance romance filled with that almost poetic storytelling I attribute as signature to Ms. Regnery, and the sort of desperate, deeply romantic love story that I will never ever get enough of.

I have anticipated Ian Haven's story so much. He captured my attention and my heart imme

Wow. I’d never thought Katy Regnery would leave me speechless again after Smiling Irish. Because, hands down, that was my favorite book from her. Or at least I thought so. Because then came Loving Irish. And I’m swooning over this book so hard!

Loving Irish is the best second chance romance I’ve read so far. It punched me in the heart so hard and fast, I couldn’t help but falling in love with it in no time.

It’s a story about the power of the first love, healing and forgiving.

This is the 3rd book of the series. The last of the triplets to fall. By far the most intriguing of the bunch. Ian Haven has some monster size demons he is wrestling with. His biggest regret in life is losing his first love all those years ago.

Hallie is also a woman down on her luck. Divorced, broke, unemployed, single mom and trying to put her life back together in a broken down cabin in the woods. The very last person she wants help from is the man who broke her heart. Ground rules i

Loving Irish is the third book in this series following the triplets of Summerhaven.

Naughty Mom Story Time
Loving Irish was an beautifully emotional second chance romance for Ian Haven. As the final Haven triplet to get his HEA, Ian’s story was one I had been anticipating since I began this trilogy. It was apparent from the moment his character was introduced that he was a bit broken and now, to have his history and see him find his way to getting a forever he so deserved?? It was just sweet and swoon worthy.

Regnery has done it again. Loving Irish, ran away with more than half of my heart. Hallie and Ian were meant to be together, yet forced to exist apart. Can they let go of the past and concentrate on taking a chance on their future? From young love to adult heartbreak, Irish proves that TRUE love will never die, when the heart is determined to find a way.

Oh, yall. Loving Irish was an interesting read. It's not too often you have a character that's an alcoholic and working their steps.

Loving Irish is a story that just melted my heart. It was so easy to fall into and be completely absorbed. I started reading and didn’t want to put down my e-reader until the very last page.

“I still believe in us. I—I believe in us, Halcyon. And if I love you hard enough, and long enough, with my entire heart and my entire soul, I believe you’ll love me back. You’ll find a way to love me again.”

This has absolutely become my new favorite Katy Regnery book. I never want this series to end! Maybe
It's one of those feel good books that puts you through a bit of a rough patch first.

A misunderstanding when they were young, Ian and Halcyon are torn apart and never really put back together.
Ian turned to alcohol.
Halcyon turned to a loveless marriage.
Neither ever found themselves.

Until they found each other.

We've been following Ian's sobriety since Fighting Irish. He's come so far and it's only a matter of time before he finds his true love.
Or is it?

Taken in and broken by him…seriously my heart just ached for what he struggled with.

Loving Irish by Katy Regnery was the third book in the Summer Haven Trio. (All must be read in order.) From book one, I could not wait to get my hand's on Ian Haven's book. When we first met him in Fighting Irish, he was a raging alcohol who had hit rock bottom.
(I love a broken bad boy!) As the books continued, we saw big changes in Ian. He was starting to put the pieces of his life back together. We got glimpses of just how wonderful he is... The man without the bottle was beautiful! K
