"Full of Irish charm, sweeping scenery, and swoon-worthy romance." - Jay Crownover, NYT bestselling author
I need a wife if I want to help save my family’s billion-dollar pub empire. There’s just one problem: I never plan on marrying. So, I need someone who understands that this is just another business deal. I don’t do commitments. And my brother’s executive assistant, Fallon Smith, fits that bill.
Fallon needs help with her grandmother’s expenses, and her pretending to be my fake wife is a way we can make that happen. She’s not my biggest fan, but we can help each other and then go our separate ways. That she’s beautiful and I enjoy spending time with her–doesn’t matter. When all of this is done, she’s heading home to America, and I’ve got a company to run.
A fake wedding and a whole lot of whiskey. What could go wrong?
Each book in the Murphy Brothers series is STANDALONE:
* Straight Up Irish
* Irish on the Rocks
* Dirty Irish
Not bad ... but just missed the mark for me.
Connor and his brothers each need a wife so they can inherit their father's business. Fallon is Connor's brother's assistant and she needs money to pay off her student loans and support her Nana in a senior home. So Connor and Fallon enter into a contract that they will get married for the 6 months that is stipulated in the will and then Connor will pay Fallon and set her up with a new job in the US. Will they deny the mutual attraction and spit at the end?
Connor was a player (and a gentleman), but he seemed to settle into monogamy too quick. Fallon was just so insecure about everything ... sometimes I wanted to just shake her and tell her to get over it already and move on. Even though the premise of the book was good, I just found it too repetitive. And it just seemed like their father set them up to fail ... that they ALL had to be married within 6 month in order to inherit the business ... really!
