Blurb:Leave it to the O’Learys to make romance a family affair…
Maggie O’Leary is finally coming home to Chicago. After more than a year in Ireland, she’s ready to make a plan for her future. But first, she’ll have to confront the tragedy that scarred her so deeply. Asking for a job in the family bar is the first step, and it’s one her family isn’t entirely happy about. At least Shane Callahan, her best friend in the world, is behind her a hundred percent. He’s also a hundred percent more lovable than she remembered…
Shane is determined to keep Maggie safe, even if it means working three jobs and giving up sleep to be around during her shifts at the bar. But when Maggie boldly tells him she needs more than a loyal friend now, Shane knows a single night together won’t be possible. The idea of spirited Maggie in his bed is electrifying, but will she believe he wants to give her his heart, too?
Review:Maggie is a rape victim trying to live her life as normally as possible, she figured traveling around Europe until she settled in Ireland would help her keep her mind off things. Now shes back home to face what she had ran away from, shes trying to face her fears and get past what triggers her panic. The one thing it seems is that she can't get too intimate with a partner because she worries she might panic. Thinking there is something wrong with her she asks her best friend to test the boundary to see if she can really get over her fears.
To tell you the truth I never did actually check out the description of the book, I'm not at all familiar with the author. It was that great cover, okay it was the hott guy on the cover that caught my eye. After finding out what the book was about I was glad that this book turned out great. I really loved the story, I was kinda of waiting for a more dramatic problem to rise like the the fact like the rapist is out but no such luck. I did love the relationship between Shane and Maggie though. I loved how caring, protect Shane was overloading himself just to make sure she was happy, safe and secure. Overall I thought that this book was great, really got me thinking I should check out the previous books that came before this one.
