She Likes It Irish by Sophia Ryan (read on 05/05/13)
I think I got this book when it was free or 99 cents. Anyhow, it was one of those ones I picked up at a good price and said well if it’s awful at least I didn’t lose much… Unlike some experiences I have had, I am really glad I got it. This was an unexpected solidly written and wonderful book. It had a HOT guy with an accent, a brain, who can sing & play guitar, rides a motorcycle, and has a ginormous… heart. 😀 It was weird reading a book about a “Kristin” LOL! But it also added to the reading experience for me, especially at the steamier scenes.
I felt the addition of Zoe and the conflict that she brought was that really good drama where it irritates you, makes you really feel it in your stomach, but is still believable. It did get a little soap opera dramatic for awhile but who doesn’t love that. I loved how these two really thought through their decisions, were victims to their own pride and fear, and actually grew together as the book went on.
I couldn’t give it five stars because some of the lines were just too freaking cheesy and some of the situations were a bit hilarious as opposed to sad like they were supposed to be. I also found some of Kristin’s naivete in regards to one relationship not to fit her character due to the fact she could identify and name all of that persons flaws and less attractive characteristics she appeared to be too aware to be that naive. Anyway, I liked it a lot!
“‘Look at me, love,’ he whispered, and she opened her eyes. ‘Are you ready for me now?’ His voice was low and deep and dangerous, and she suddenly felt as if she’d opened the tiger’s cage.”
“Pure joy surged inside her like an erupting volcano and she dipped her head into his chest and giggled to release some of it before she exploded.”
Overall Rating: 4 stars really like 4.25 stars!!!
