“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?”
After a really bad breakup Jamie Webb decides to take some time off and travels to Ireland for a 10-days vacation. She’s hoping to have “fun” and forget about her ex, but when she arrives to the place where she will be staying she realizes the only pub around is one where all the patrons are her father’s age or older. When she’s ready to give up on her plans McHottie Irish Bartender aka Connor Kelleher walks into the bar for his night shift. Sparks fly between them and they decide to share more than couple of Guinness.
Jamie knows she only has couple of days to “enjoy” what Ireland has to offer and does her best to take advantage of time she has. She also knows that nothing will come from their fling; in couple of days she’ll be flying back home leaving Connor and many great memories behind.
What they weren’t expecting was to fall for each other in such a short time, but with an ocean between them their future is uncertain.
I have only read couple of books by Cara McKenna, but something that I always expect from her books is the unexpected. She always gives us unique characters with unpredictable twists in her stories; I was expecting to find that when I started to read Her Best Laid Plans, sadly that unique something was completely missing in this novella. Her Best Laid Plans although well written and highly entertaining, was an ordinary read.
Her Best Laid Plans is a sweet, hot and fun novella with cute characters and many smexy times. If you want a quick, well-written, light and hot read Her Best Laid Plans is the novella you will want to read.
My Verdict: 3 ½ Paws
