Imagine nursing a pint in a cozy, authentic country pub, far from Cork's busy city pulse. Getting here took you a plane, bus, taxi and…um, bicycle. But just as you're resigning yourself to drinking beside grey-haired farmers, you see him—a man with the looks and charm to soothe any heartbroken girl.
He's your bartender. Your really, really gorgeous bartender.
For American Jamie Webb—recently dumped and housesitting for two weeks—Connor Kelleher is like a six-course feast after a 23-year starvation diet. But it's gotta be casual. She's just begun rerouting her life after a three-year man-related detour. Still, a sexy romp (or twenty!) with Sexy McBartender?
But what happens when Jamie's best-laid plans for no future plans with any man begin to change?
This is a cute but quick read. Jamie, an American, has 10 days in Ireland and meets the hunky Connor, a barman, on her first night in a sleepy Irish pub nestled in a small village near Cork.
Temperatures rise as Connor and Jamie both have instant chemistry to one another. The next 10 days happen to be the best for both of them.
No strings, no attachments, no...hope of a happily ever after? Both sides have firm plans of studying followed by permanent jobs. But they enjoy their time together as much as they can.
If you've never been to Ireland before then you'll love this. The story is really well written with enough zest, irish charm and spiciness to keep your toes curled. And the ending? *sigh!
