Love those O’Neil brothers? Get the fourth book in the series by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay, where sexy and elusive Dylan O’Neil tries to even the score with nemesis Rachel Scott. If you think opposites attract romances and second chance love stories happen, this book is for you.
Dylan O’Neil’s Achilles heel is his family. He’ll do anything to protect them. Rachel Scott seems to offend and even hurt the O’Neils with her coverage of them on her cable news show. When Dylan exposes her irresponsible journalism in one of his popular columns for a local magazine, Rachel is furious and accuses him of bias and vindictiveness. Forced by the heads of both news agencies to resolve their differences, Dylan sees another side to Rachel, one with more warmth and depth than she displays to the world. And she finds him to be a caring man who safeguards those he loves. Attraction between them flares out of control, and they are drawn deeply into each other’s lives. But with the entire O’Neil clan against them, can they ever have a lasting relationship?
Set in the colorful world of New York City, the politics of Washington D.C. and war scenes in Syria, HIGH STAKES takes the reader on another journey with those wonderful O’Neil men.
Reader praise for HIGH STAKES
“Dylan and Rachel drove me crazy, but in a good way. I loved this book. It was even better than the others.”
“Shay has a way of building relationships, finding forgiveness and love entwined. You cannot go wrong with ANY Kathryn Shay book and this one is no exception. I can't get enough of her books.”
“HIGH STAKES is about Dylan O'Neill, the writer in the family, and his eventual and hard won pairing with Rachel Scott. As always, Ms. Shay’s prose had tears rolling down my face…Dylan and Rachel's story is full of angst; not one you would want to experience, but then none of the family stories were easy. They were rooted in a solid foundation of love and determination.”
“I've been waiting for Dylan's story for a long time! It was worth the wait! I wasn't sure how I was going to like Rachel, but she grew on me. I love all the O'Neil brothers (and Bailey). Thanks for finally writing it Kathryn Shay!”
“So excited that Dylan finally got his story. This is the fourth book in the O’Neil family saga. I wasn't totally happy at first with the choice of a woman for Dylan, but I knew Kathryn Shay would spin a tale that I would love. I enjoyed the story.”
Also available: the O’Neil brothers’ stories in SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN, CLOSE TO YOU, TAKING THE HEAT and ALWAYS AND FOREVER, contemporary romances with alpha male heroes and the strong women who love them. Don’t miss these Irish romance series novels.

This book is the weakest of the series and is a short book compared to the rest. There was so much going on but at the same time so much was left out. The main problem is at times the author seemed to forget Dylan has a son. Also it was so hard to like rachel after everything did to the family in the previous books, it was hard to believe Dylan could stand to be in the same room as her.
