I will be the first to admit, this story had me worried. In the beginning section it was quite slow and I wanted to kill nearly every writer, publisher and agent the book referred to. I mean, are people in the publishing world really this cruel?
By 66% in I knew this book would make it. The story started rolling and I was hooked. The character of Tom perplexed me. He didn't react in the way normal guys would. I couldn't figure him or his motivations out. And the whole thing about the Irish way of life.. What was up with that. I couldn't believe anyone would keep Lord Tony and Maeve, Tom's mom apart. They were so obviously meant for each other.
I knew Shayla would be sent back to NYC but I was afraid Mags might turn out to be one of those backbiting publishing types. So glad I was wrong. This book had me tearing up and choked up in the end. And only the really good books can manage to accomplish that.
Great story. 4 stars.
I received this as an ARC from Net Galley in return for an honest review. I thank the author, publisher and Net Galley for allowing me to read this title.
