Crew Costa isn’t Irish, but for a kid from the school of hard knocks, he’s had the luck of the Irish with his chain of faux-Irish pubs, O’Shaughnessy’s Shenanigans. Number 13 is set to open in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The Bronx is already the site of several authentic Irish pubs, including The Lion O’Brien. Started by Liam O’Brien, the pub is now managed by his youngest daughter Siobhan, but only after her four older brothers refused the job. Now Siobhan has to prove she is worthy. Siobhan falls for Crew, literally, after they collide while he is moving into her apartment building. Their attraction is immediate and powerful, but they are rivals. Siobhan is counting on the Lion winning the St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl, which Crew has entered as well. The lead-up to the event involves “pranking” your competition, and the older pubs band together against the gaudy newcomer, with its McNaughty the Leprechaun and other cultural stereotypes. For Crew and Siobhan, the pranking quickly gets personal and expensive. Siobhan and Crew can’t resist the electricity between them, but can Siobhan trust this streetwise charmer? Can Crew trust this daddy’s girl whose overriding passion is her pub? And will the rage brewing among the other pub owners put their lives in danger?
|"Best of luck" is often said to someone in a competition. The sincerity of the sentiment can vary.|
For St. Patrick's Day the competition is a pub crawl between the traditional Irish pubs, however this year there are new venues. Siobhan O'Brien, only daughter in a traditional and lifelong pub family, finally has her chance to earn her da's approval and show up her brothers as pub manager. There is also a new bar in town, a chain, and not at all traditional. No one even wants to allow it into the competition until Siobhan sees who owns it. Immediate attraction can not be denied between Siobhan and the stranger, Crew Costa. Can love conquer all or will her competitive spirit and desire to please her father make Siobhan lose sight of her values as pranks between the pubs escalate to out of control?
Romantic tension and competitive suspense fill each page as Siobhan struggles with her ethical dilemma and her personal emotions. The pace is quick and the writing flows easily.
I enjoyed this book very much.
