~Review: Her Best Laid Plans by Cara McKenna~

Experience Ireland—the dramatic beauty, the warm hospitality…and the smoking hot local guys!

Imagine nursing a pint in a cozy, authentic country pub, far from Cork's busy city pulse. Getting here took you a plane, bus, taxi and…um, bicycle. But just as you're resigning yourself to drinking beside grey-haired farmers, you see him—a man with the looks and charm to soothe any heartbroken girl.

He's your bartender. Your really, really gorgeous bartender.

For American Jamie Webb—recently dumped and housesitting for two weeks—Connor Kelleher is like a six-course feast after a 23-year starvation diet. But it's gotta be casual. She's just begun rerouting her life after a three-year man-related detour. Still, a sexy romp (or twenty!) with Sexy McBartender?

But what happens when Jamie's best-laid plans for no future plans with any man begin to change?

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

What could be more exciting than to spend eight days in Ireland living all your daydreams?  When Jamie Webb was asked to house sit for her mother’s best friend in Ireland the only question she asked was when.  Her best friend was supposed to go with her and they had plans to explore and enjoy their time there. Only her friend got an internship right before they were to leave, so Jamie went alone.  She needed this time to kick back, relax and prepare for school. It was also time to let herself go and have a good time after her ex dumped her.  The first night there she goes to the local pub and meets the most amazing man she had ever seen, Connor.

Connor was attracted to Jamie the moment their eyes met. He could not believe the young woman that sat in his da’s pub and she mesmerized him with her beautiful brown eyes. There was a connection between them that said yes there really is such a thing as love at first sight.  The more time they spend together the more he wants to know about her and her life.  He knows that she will only be in Ireland for a short time and plans to spend as much of that time with her as she will let him.  Connor is aware that Jamie gave up everything for her ex and he knows that he cannot ask her to do the same for him. 

Will Connor and Jamie find a way to be together?  Can Jamie put her past heartbreak and betrayal behind her and be with Connor?
