Start your review of Falling for Irish (MacArthur Family, #1)
This is a Novella Suspense with a Second Chance Romance, and this is the first book in the MacArthur Family series. This book is a short and quick read, but it was really good. I think this book took me just over a hour to read the whole book. I have see people talk about the romance in this book, but this book has a suspense thing happening in the background. I enjoyed both the suspense and the romance, but if you do not like suspense romance you may not enjoy this book. I really got pulled int ...more

Falling for Irish by Katie Reus
Book 1 of the MacArthur Family series. Contemporary romantic suspense novella.
Kathryn Irish was afraid that she and Daniel MacArthur had different end goals in life so she walked away from their prior romantic relationship. When she runs into him as part of her security job, he makes it clear he’s missed her and wants a second chance.

I appreciated the hero so much in this book because he was clear on his intentions and his feelings. He missed her and wanted to try
What a spectacular beginning to this new series!

This is a novella but it feels like so much more, mainly due to the fact Kathryn and Daniel had been in a relationship prior to the beginning of this story. That carries a lot of weight and validates their emotions and responses.

I loved the way Daniel had perceived his relationship with Kathryn the first time around as well as his reactions to her when they were reunited a few months later. Any hero that is possessive, jealous and above all, prote

I really enjoyed this one.
It’s a novella and the introduction to a new short series of 3 books. Each featuring one of the MacArthur siblings. Consequently there’s a lot going on here.
On top of introducing all the main players there’s attacks on Kathryn. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
Daniel is rich, handsome and successful. Kathryn is beautiful and independent. They were both happy together until she discovered he thought she was after his money. So she walked away.
But like him she’s una

ARC received for review

A new series by Ms. Reus that starts it off with a bang. There is suspense and romance as Daniel and Kathryn reunite and fall in love again. There is someone out to harm her, but Daniel is determined to keep her safe and never let her go again.

They both have siblings to get HEAs which I can't wait to read.

Falling for Irish is the first book in Katie Reus's new MacArthur Family series. It is a novella so it is a quick read but worth the time. Kathryn and Daniel's story is a second chance romance after a misunderstanding occurred between the two of them. These two characters have good chemistry and are surrounded by a good cast of secondary characters. There is a little bit of suspense involved in the plot. I enjoyed this novella and look forward to the next two in the series.

What a sweet quick read. Kathryn and Daniel had dated and then he broke her heart, so when she sees him again he's shocked she's wearing a diamond and she's still weak kneed over him. Knowing all that she still has to complete this job.

Read this book to find out what happens next.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

It's okay.
During separation neither are intimate with anyone else.
The Hero doesn't date at all, the heroine does but things don't progress.
Mindy Lou's Book Review
A fun, cute novella with a nerdy heroine and a rich, overprotective hero.

This starts out with them broken up over a misunderstanding. When they see each other again, Daniel realizes he just can't get over her and he's determined to win her back.

The things I loved about this was first and foremost, the protective and possessive hero, a guy chases girl theme, and the nerdy, hacker heroine who made the hero work for it.

This is a new series by this author. It was a great short book. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
Computer security expert Kathryn Irish can't believe her latest job is in one of her ex-boyfriend Daniel MacArthur's buildings, and of course she runs into him in the lobby because that's not at all embarrassing. Billionaire with no known occupation (okay there might have been but I can't recall how he earned his billions) Daniel doesn't know what went wrong between him and Kathryn but now they've been thrown together he's going to do everything in his power to keep her in his life.

A quick second chances romance that left me with a smile.

This novella begins with a hacking. Kathryn Irish has been hired to find the weak spots in a company’s computer security, and she’s very good at what she does. She goes into the building undercover, and runs into the her ex.

Daniel takes one look at her and he wants her back. He has no idea why she broke up with him two months ago, but he’s known since he met her that she’s it for him. And here she is

Nothing can get your attention like the one who got away getting married! Daniel and Kathryn run into each other, and are shocked to realize they still care for each other. Sweet story with these two finally reconnecting. I can’t wait for the rest of the family to get their stories!

What a cute but fast paced novella. We have ex lovers that are meeting again and the heroine going to work on a project for him. The old flames are starting to burn again, but there are few coincidences that don't ad up...someone stole her purse and after two weeks man attacks her... The base of the story is interesting, it is easy to read it and it kept my attention until the end. I was sorry that it was short and the story didn't had a chance to develop slow. All in all it was a cute read, per ...more

I have so many Katie Reus books on my Kindle because they have so much of what I love: the heroes are utterly devoted to the heroines, there’s quality steam, & the engaging storylines have plenty of thrills. Unfortunately, I just didn’t warm to this novella.

The romance between Kathryn Irish and Daniel MacArthur has been filled with turmoil and tears. Their passion was intense but Kathryn breaks it off when she believes Daniel thinks she's a gold diggers. A chance meeting reunites them. Will they find their HEA? I hoped so. These two are a dynamite couple. They complete each other. Daniel is protective and caring. Kathryn's cat, Mr. Twinkles, is his biggest fan, but the lady has reservations.

Falling for Irish is an enjoyable, fast-paced novella. That wonderfully introduces Daniel MacArthur and his siblings Sienna and Brodie. And with just the right amount of heat, sweetness and romance between main characters Daniel and Kathryn, and a sprinkling of suspense this really was an engaging read. And one I would happily recommend to others.

This sucked me in from the first page! Kathryn is a strong, secure woman who is darn good at her job. Her one and only weakness is in her rear view mirror, or is he? It seems that luck is working against her when she encounters her “could’ve been” while on a job. And it REALLY looks bad when she’s rocking a huge diamond on her finger. It’s only after the chaos settles that Daniel realizes just how evasive Kathryn’s answers were and he sets out to find the truth, then make the woman his again. Fo ...more

This cute novella from one of my favorite authors, Katie Reus, is the start of a new series, and one I am going to really enjoy. This was a second chance romance with a bit of suspense. Daniel and Kathryn were well fleshed out and for a short novella, the writing was well written and plausible. Will enjoy reading more of this series. I received this arc from Netgalley and all thoughts and reviews are mine. I will also be buying this book.

Kathryn Irish and Daniel MacArthur had a thing going until she abruptly ended it, leaving him with a spinning head, not able to figure out just what happened and what had prompted her to pull the plug with no warning. She had her reason and it was a good one.

Now she's in his building under the pretenses of needing an event planner, but is secretly doing a security job. She wants to do an in and out on this, but nothing is ever that easy.

The book grabbed me from the beginning and didn't let go
