I love the characters and Pops seems like a hoot & a half. I love the storyline formula. You definitely can’t go wrong with Good Girl meets Bad Boy + instant attraction + hilarious/crazy family & friends + fall in love = good times. For this authors first work I think she did an outstanding job.

The only thing I would say about this book is that parts felt rushed a little. Sometimes it was a little difficult to differentiate between character thoughts and time changes. I would

Thank you to Anna Castor and Goodreads.com I won this book in a Giveaway.

Sweet, sexy and oh so much fun ! Can't wait to see what's in store for the other Mills boyos ! :-) There are quite a lot of characters and most have the same sounding names but it was a great quick fun book to read.

Duncan is the start of The Lucky Irish Series, and seriously, who doesn't love the Irish?! Oh, I so love me some Irish Luck, and this story is about 3 Irish families & their love lives! Okay, let me get on with it. This is the story of the good girl, Kayla, who shocks the hell out of her family when she packs up everything, and leaves her family, home, and work after a horrible night that wrecks her. So Kayla ends up in Austin, Texas, working for Duncan's older brother, and even though she's ...more

Rating: 4.5*

This series has started with a bang and I loved it. I felt so at home with all the characters as though I had known them a long time. The characters are each unique and bring their own brand of quirkiness and fun to the book. I am going to enjoy returning to these families time and time again.

Kayla is a fighter. She has survived a brutal attack, given up her job and moved far away from her family to protect them. Her determination in getting a job and the conf

This was a quick, enjoyable read, very light (although there's some definite heavy stuff that happens). I'm giving it 3 stars: not fabulous, not bad. Based on what happens in this book, I can predict the pairings-off of other characters in further books in this series, and it seems just too neat. I doubt I'll pick up the rest of the series because of this.

I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway and I'm giving my honest opinion in return.

This is the first of this series and we have Kayla and Duncan, Kayla has a bad time so she packs everything up and moves to Austin, Texas and meets Duncan because she works for his brother.
The chemistry is awesome and I love the push and pull because I did not think it should be insta love with what she went through

I won this book on goodreads. Thank you for the giveaway! The book is nicely written with a challenging topic. I enjoy the typical Irish family bound (aka everyone knows about everyone’s business) in the book and development of the story. There were scenes where I was laughing out loud and scenes that made me think and tear up. Looking forward to the second book.

Not bad

Not a bad read, 3.5 stars rounded up to 4. It was entertaining and the romance was hot, though not entirely believable. The characters maybe could've used a little more detail/depth to them. Still, I generally enjoyed this one.
I won this book in a giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

Good start

I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review. The book started kind of slowly and was a bit disjointed in the first half. Everything came together very quickly towards the end. I'll look for the next book in the series.

Nice read

Strong characters with good story line. Both Duncan and Kayla come from close Irish families. Kayla moves to Austin after being attacked. Duncan's family welcome her with open arms. Kayla's family come to her aid when her attacker reappears.
This is a romantic suspence.

Shelves: first-reads, romance
I was a First Read Winner of this Book and on the surface it was everything I like in a good romance, but somehow I just never really got into it. I am an avid reader and I really hate when this happens to me. The characters for me lacked real chemistry, though they all seemed very likable, but I just could not buy the storyline, but clearly I am in the minority here. Also how many times in the course of a conversation, with only 2 characters, do you need to say the other persons name? Overall p ...more

Book one is the story of Duncan and Kayla. The heroin in this story is having a bit of a rough patch so she packs up and moves to Austin Texas where she meets our hero Duncan. Their Chemistry is off the charts there is a back and forth with them that draws you in. They meet paths as she works for her brother. This book gives it all to you I found myself laughing out loud on some of the pages you get wrapp
