Synopsis:

Fiona O’Leary wants nothing more than to flee away from the small town she grew up in, her three extremely over protective brothers, and her Irish parents. But leaving Warblers Point is not that simple, especially when she is the bar maid at the local pub she owns with her three brothers. After a two year relationship with local Irishman, Murphy Ryan, sharing nothing but each other’s beds, she realizes she wants more out of a relationship besides sex. But somehow she keeps winding up in his arms wishing she could break away but finds the task impossible when her family is head over heels in love of the idea of Murphy and Fiona together.

Booker Hall, world re-known director, finds himself living an empty and unfulfilled life. The people around him are fake, narcissistic and only care about his money. In an act of desperation he decides to enlist his sister for some help, give himself a makeover and go to a place where no one would recognize him. Never did he think he was going to fall in love with an unsuspecting bar maid with whiskey colored eyes and an over-bearing family.

The minute Fiona lays eyes on Booker, she knows she is sunk. His devilish grin, movie star looks and charming heart are hard to avoid and she constantly finds herself gravitating toward him. The only bad thing about Booker is that he is a tourist and living in a touristy town she has learned that getting involved with a non-local only brings heartache. Instead of giving into Booker, she finds herself debating which relationship is safer; an empty relationship but fulfilling sex life with Murphy or a deep and meaningful relationship with Booker that could only bring heartache.

Beers, Hens and Irishmen dives into the complexity of Fiona’s love life, the crazy antics of her three brothers, as well as her two overbearing and heavily Irish speaking parents. Fists fly, hearts are broken, beer is guzzled and deceit is formed amongst comrades while the O’Leary’s take over Warblers Point in the search for love and what makes them happy.

REVIEW

The Romance Vault’s Verdict: ♥♥♥♥ hearts

Oh where to begin, just where to begin!  OK so let’s say this first I didn’t like one of the main characters very much for a fair bit of the duration, I couldn’t find it in me to gel with Fiona. One minute she’s kissing and feeling up one bloke and the next night she’s doing the same with another bloke after she’s professed she can’t seem to stay away from the first bloke.  Hmmm I don’t like girl players like that, stringing along and not knowing which side of the bread the butter is on.  But do you know what it didn’t matter in the end that I didn’t gel with her, there’s a few others too that had me raising eyebrows at them and wanting to bring them to task for what they were doing.

Some of the events did seem a little too easy to fall into place and the fact that each person seems to want to be in the pants of another person and totally undecided at who they should be with but again as much as I was against that I was ok reading it as I was not going to let it get to me.

So that’s enough on the neg side because you’ll notice I rated this book a healthy 4 hearts so therein that says I liked it.  This book does not just involve two main leads, there’s a plethora of them.  Fiona, Murphy, Booker, Liam, Bradon, Blaire, Finn, Neala, to name but a few ;0).  It was interesting to follow them all and their shenanigans!

But even with my little niggles I’ve got to say that Meghan seemed to weave a spell around me and I was completely invested in this story after the first 20%, it took me a little while to settle and it’s probably purely down to the behaviour of a few of them.

The camaraderie between the brothers was great fun and some of what those boys spewed out of their mouths was just plain ‘laddie lads’ and it was fun and it seemed so apt and brought their personalities alive.  But also some of what they do as in their actions left me cross with them and wanting to bang their heads and shout ‘make your freakin mind up!’

I loved ‘Sheila’ too, I was able to connect with him straight away (yes I said him ☺), Fiona was lucky he didn’t walk away at the start after being messed about a bit.

What I didn’t expect to find was myself near to tears towards the end, arghh what happens outside on the lawn was awful and that event kind off brought about the whole circle of everything that had been going on and made it all make more sense about their behaviour or lack of it and I can honestly say I HAVE to read book 2 to find out what they do and what happens next; and not because I ‘have’ to, but also because I really want to.  Meghan sold this story to me with how she wove everything together and I truly thoroughly enjoyed it.
