If Sarah Mercer had ever been asked to describe herself in one word, it would be sensible. After all, she had a steady job. Made prudent decisions. Was in what she though was a logical relationship. But when her fiance dumps her for an exotic dancer, Sarah decides it’s time to change…everything! The first thing on her agenda? To get out of town and take a three month trip to Ireland. She’d always been captivated by the Emerald Isle. And she’d heard that there was nothing like an Irishman with a sexy accent and eyes as devastatingly green as the country’s rolling hills to make a girl feel better.

But maybe she shouldn’t have hooked up with her new landlord on the first night in town. Cian Murphy wasn’t supposed to be her type. His arms and chest were tattooed, and he had piercings everywhere. Still, he made her feel beautiful, sexy…alive for the first time in years. Falling for the Irish hottie was as natural as breathing. But figuring out what she’d do when it came time to leave? Not so easy...

I haven't read Lauren Hawkeye before but I heard a fellow blogger talking about this story and had to give it a try. Because of what this fellow blogger said I knew somewhat about what was going to happen in the story so I went in with my eyes wide open. 

It's been a while since I've read a book based in Ireland so I really couldn't wait to try this one. Plus, add in the bad-boy hero and I couldn't wait to read it. 

I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed Kiss of the Irish. I found the story to be a well-written, easily read story. I also really loved the characters. Cian has turned out to be one of my favorite hero's. I really connected with him. He's sweet, loving and has now grown-up. 

I also liked Sarah. She needed a boast in confidence that she got from her new friends and Cian. After how her ex-fiance treated her she needed a life. One she could enjoy and live a little. 

As much as I really enjoyed the story I did have a few issues with it. Very small ones. For one, I felt like I was missing something. I don't know what that is since I really enjoyed the story but it's there. And second, I felt the author need to add more about Cian's pierces and the way they felt during sex. Other then that, I'm glad I read the story. 

If you've read Kiss of the Irish or any other book by Lauren Hawkeye I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡  


  1. She totally forgot he had that piercing. I was pretty disappointed in that. It never should have been mentioned he had one if nothing was going to ever come of it again. Grr. Can ya tell I'm still very sad about that? lol I really liked the set up, though and liked the hero too :D

    1. After you talking about the piercing I had to read it. Next thing I knew I was reading it then you were talking about your complaints. Even with that complaint, I enjoyed it. But it would have been even better if...
