Tagline: He’s the last thing she wants…but the only thing she needs.
Blurb: Willa Peet isn’t interested in love. She’s been there, done that, and has the shattered heart to prove it. Ready to shake the breakup, she heads to Dublin, Ireland. But there’s a problem. A dark-haired, blue-eyed problem with a bad attitude that rivals her own. And he’s not doling out friendly Irish welcomes.
Shane Claymore just wants to race. The death of his father forced him off the Formula One circuit, but he’s only staying in Dublin long enough to sell the Claymore Inn and get things in order for his mother and younger sister. He never expected the sarcastic American girl staying at the inn to make him question everything.
But even as Willa and Shane’s fiery natures draw them together, their pasts threaten to rip them apart. Can Shane give up racing to be with the woman he loves, or will Willa’s quest to resurrect the tough-talking, no-shit-taking girl she used to be destroy any hope of a future together?
I am not even sure where to start with this review. This book does not disappoint! We first met Willa in Protecting What’s His as she is the sister of Ginger Peet. In this book, Willa is all grown up and heads to Ireland after winning a photography contest to help her heal from her recent breakup. The last thing she was looking for was a new man in her life. However, when she lands she meets Shane Claymore. It turns out the place where she is staying is his family’s so there will be no way she can avoid him.
Shane is more than a little testy with Willa. He has his own baggage and worries and the last thing he needs is the feisty American around to distract him. But the more he is around her, the more alpha male he becomes and he doesn’t want another man around her. Willa seems to be testing his resolve to not get involved with her each day.
When they finally, and I do mean finally, give in to their desires it is smokin’ HOT!!! I seriously thought my e-reader was going to catch on fire from the flames!

“Tonight won’t be the last time. If I have you once, I’m going to want you over and over. This doesn’t end here. Not by a fucking long shot.” ~ Shane
“That’s right, girl. Scream my fucking name. Only mine.” ~ Shane
See what I mean? HOT!! What’s not to love an alpha with a dirty mouth? Nothing I tell ya, nothing!
