I enjoyed this Anthology SO much that I actually bought a few of the books that are connected to the stories in Kiss Me, I'm Irish.

The Sins of His Past by Roxanne St. Claire I have to be honest, was my favorite of the three, I think because it was the most emotional and I love a reunion romance. Deuce Monroe comes home, after making a stupid mistake with his career, to find his father's bar turned into an Internet Cafe, and the woman managing the cafe is non other than Kendra Locke, his best-friends little sister, well...more than that, but he screwed that up years ago.

Kendra Locke can't believe that Deuce is back to ruin her life one more time, as if he didn't do enough of that the last time he came home. Kendra has plans, but so does Deuce, and getting Kendra back in his arms is part of his plan.

Let me just say that I did tear up a bit while reading this story. It just hits a spot within your chest and keeps on digging, until you feel ripped open, like Kendra. This was a great addition to the anthology and I think you will all love it as much as I did.

Tangling with Ty by Jill Shalvis is a quick read, but it packs a big punch, especially with the chemistry building between Dr. Nicole Mann and Ty Patrick O' Grady. Both are attracted to another, but neither is looking for anything past a quick romp in the bedroom. He never knows how long he will stay in one place and she is a very, busy Dr. who has trouble forming personal relationships.
You will get a kick out of this story and especially the scenes where Nicole and Ty are fighting their attraction to another, and you will be cheering for them the entire time.

Whatever Reilly Wants by Maureen Child is also a quick, fun read, with slightly more emotion and great for anyone who loves reading about a big, tough Marine being brought to his knees by the woman he used to only see as his Best Friend.

Emma Jacobsen is tired of her best friend, Conner, looking at her as if she is Just One of the Guys because she wears Coveralls at the Garage she owns and works as a Mechanic. She wants to teach him a lesson, and he certain learns NEVER to mistake Emma as one of the guys, especially when all he wants to do is get her in his bed.

My recommendation is to READ THIS BOOK, especially if you like to read a few short romances in one sitting, and If you like some VERY SEXY IRISHMEN!! You won't be bored!!
