Review – Loving Irish

Loving Irish; The Summerhaven Trio (Series)
by Katy Regnery (Author)

This review is from: June 6, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Redemption, second chance at love, amends. It’s a beautiful story no matter what word you choose and Ian Haven has to be one of my favorite hero’s facing the gauntlet of redemption.
A man on the road from years of addiction. Finally facing his demons head on and making amends for his wrongs.

Coming from a family who struggles with this very same affliction and watching close family members fight to overcome this very same disease I can attest to the strength it takes to rejoin a society that continually pushes the party lifestyle as the norm. Social gatherings, holiday parties, going out to dinner, sporting events, even walking through the grocery store can be a challenge where advertisements are plentiful and liquor is easy to access. It is a lifelong testament of willpower to those who have amazing support like Ian Haven.


This book is not only filled with a journey about second chances, it’s about the Haven triplets. As a family they are pretty awesome in their support of one another and Loving Irish not only continues to show the bond the triplets have, but it continues the story of Rory and Brittany along with Tierney and Burr from the first two books and you get a glimpse into the next book with a family member visiting from Ireland. So Summerhaven isn’t quite over yet.

As for Ian and Hallie, their love story began back with they were just teenagers. Even with Mrs. Haven’s strict rules about being hands off concerning the campers, Ian never did consider himself a good listener and enjoyed the hands on approach, especially when it came to Hallie Gilbert. When she came into his life he knew she was it for him and he wanted nothing else in the world than to make her happy. Unfortunately the best laid plans don’t always work out and when hearts are broken different paths of mice and men or something along those lines.

I’m sure Ian would have a beautiful Irish limerick, but alas I’m fresh out.
Hallie never wanted to see Ian Haven again, as a matter of fact she’d sworn off men in general after her nasty divorce, but when she arrived at her childhood summer home only to find it falling down around her, it was hard not to accept his help. The boy-correction-now man-who once broke her heart is there to make amends and won’t leave until she’s safe and no longer living in the pitfall squaller she wants to call a home. Unwilling to accept his friendship, only his help setting her home to rights she has little to no choice. However, as time moves along and she sees he is no longer the boy who broke her heart, but a man who perhaps has changed, could she be willing to let him back in and begin again?

EXCERPT 

She peeked a glance up at him, catching mostly only a broad shoulder because of his height. His long arms swung at his sides and his posture stern as he stared at the romantic beach scene in front of them.
They were about thirty feet from the other guests when Wes slipped his hand into hers.
She stiffened on contact and her brain shut down.
Low, so only she could hear, he said, “We have to sell it, remember?”
She nodded, not trusting herself to say anything while her heart did backhand springs in her rib cage. Holy crap. She was totally holding Wes Stevenson’s hand.
And she totally sounded like a teenybopper thinking that.
Be cool, Tee. Be cool. 
It was going to be tough though since her version of cool had never been anything close to his. Or anyone else’s for that matter.
Standing up straighter, she closed her hand around his, taking in the feel of skin against skin. The closer they got to the already filled area, the more erratic her heartbeat became. She was going to face Juliet, her family, and friends. And they were all going to chastise Teegan for bringing Wes.
Damn. She wished she’d thought about that before this moment. She could’ve feigned sickness for the entire weekend. What was going around right now? Yellow fever? Malaria? She’d even take a good case of salmonella. Anything to get her out of seeing the judgment in everyone’s eyes. The same judgment she saw at every other Delta Gam wedding she’d attended.
With a date, without a date…it didn’t matter. It followed Teegan anyway.
The man in question didn’t seem bothered by their impending fate. He stood tall and wore a confident smile. Zero nerves radiated off him.
The Ice Box, they’d called him on the football field. Because he was always cool under pressure. Man, what she wouldn’t give to have some of that superpower right now.
He squeezed her hand, which made her look up at him. He lifted his chin, gesturing in front of them. She looked toward a receiving line that included the bride and groom.
Juliet and the man she’d left Wes for.
Excellent. Teegan couldn’t wait to greet them both on this glorious, fantastic evening.
Why, oh why, had she agreed to this? It would’ve been better not to attend at all, rather than bring Juliet’s ex to Juliet’s wedding.
Oh, God. Her heart was beating at an unhealthy rate. She might faint.
Hey, that wasn’t a bad idea. If she fainted—
The hand attached to hers tightened.
Wes. She was doing this for Wes. Just think about that. This had to be a million times worse for him.
