Title: Sweet Irish Kiss
Author: Joanne Kenrick
Description: Shaun Bell, a divorced workaholic, spends all his time tending bar in his Irish pub. He's ready to love again, but the women who visit his bar are only after his infamous Irish cocktails. At the advice of his darts team, over a tanker or two of Beamish, he applies to 1Night Stand to get back into the swing of things and enjoy the company of a woman specially selected for him by Madame Evangeline.
Rachel Taylor has issues. Her father broke her mother’s heart with his cheating and Rachel swore never to let that happen to her, but one ruined relationship after another and she’s realized she's got to get over being closed off to men. Perhaps a one-night stand is just the baby step she needs to begin to build trust again.
A match seemingly made in heaven...until morning rolls around and Shaun can't bring himself to say good-bye. Can he win her over with his secret weapon, a Sweet Irish Kiss, or is Rachel still too scared to love?
My thoughts: JoAnne Kenrick, you certainly brought sexy back to that Sweet Irish Kiss! Normally, I would put little snippets of a summary in my thoughts, but the description says it best. The cover is gorgeous and instantly drew my attention. The words, on my Kindle, kept me glued to this sexy 1Night Stand edition. The chemistry between the characters is definitely hot. Rachel has sass, yet you can tell under it there is a vulnerable side. While Shaun, can serve me a drink anytime with his handsome, shy self anytime he wants. Their personalities really come through in this short story. I also love how they burned the sheets up on their one night encounter. I admit I had a few swoon moments close to the end. Joanne, you never fail to displease me with a story yet and I look forward to the next.
