My life has revolved around the two things I’ve always loved: whiskey and rugby. Now the marriage clause in my Da’s will has me putting both on the back burner if I want to save the Murphy’s Pub empire and find a wife. As the last brother to get married, I need a little help, and that’s where my sister-in-law’s American best friend, Leah, comes into the picture. She could use a little Irish luck after the deceitful things her ex did to her that brought her to Ireland. With her take-no-shite-attitude, she’s just the type of girl to help me find a wife. That is, if I can remember she’s the matchmaker and not the match.
Each book in the Murphy Brothers series is STANDALONE:
Sean is in trouble, he needs to find a wife and find one fast. Leah is looking for a new start in a new place. When circumstances bring these two together they are unable to fight the attraction that they feel for each other. This book started out extremely slow for me. But began to pick up almost halfway into the book. Because I didn’t read the previous book, I didn’t get the full effect of the chemistry that they had nor did I really feel it in this book. Sean is such a sweet, strong and caring man. He was easy to like and felt relatable. He definitely knows what pressure is and what it feels like to be pulled in multiple directions. As for Leah, I just couldn’t connect with her. She was not interesting to me in anyway shape or form. I didn’t see any characteristics in her that I identified with. I’ve said it before in my reviews and I’ll say it again, I find it extremely hard for myself to really enjoy a book if I can’t identify with the heroine. It’s just not enjoyable for me to read a story about a heroine I honestly don’t care that much about. Overall the story was okay, but it felt so dry to me. I needed and wanted to have more substance. I just felt like it was missing something.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of 5 stars from me.
Thank you Entangled Publishing for this eARC in exchange for an honest review.
