Beautiful This story has a lot of twist and turns. But it brings happiness to two people who have felt hurt in their lives. But find peace, happiness and love with each other.

This is one of those books that puts the Happily in the Happily Ever After. It takes a leap of faith to fall in love. Brennan captures this so well, “She was going to break my heart, I knew it the minute I met her, but it didn’t seem to matter to me.” The heart wants what the heart wants. I find names to be incredibly important to a story. I love when Brennan insists on referring to Sam as Samantha. “Everyone else gets Sam, but I get Samantha. I get the woman behind the brand. I get you, all of you, and that’s only mine to have.” The primary setting of the story takes place in a small pub in Ireland is incredibly romantic. The way it is described conjures up images of warm homeyness. Admittedly, it also brought back a lot of great memories of college as I used to frequent a bar, also known as Murphy’s Pub, at the University of Illinois.

Brennan and Samantha. At first glace, they didn't seem at all compatible and that was only based on their occupations. He's a pub owner, she's an actress. But as I read along, I realized they were more compatible than I though. They each had secrets. Brennan's wasn't so horrible and I understood why he hadn't come out and said to Samantha, "I'm a father." Who does that? It's like a first date no-no. The same goes for Samantha. Her secrets were, in her mind only, horrible and made her unworthy of a man's affection, especially a man who had a child. But the sins of her past do not define her to Brennan. The challenge was making her understand that. The added twist of a stalker was...okay? I don't know. A part of me would have liked for that part to be more pronounced than it was, but the other part is really glad it wasn't. Samantha's past was why the stalker was after her to begin with. The weight of that alone was already too much. Making the plot more sinister and darker would have detracted from what she had to face alone and then with Brennan. I liked this story. The swearing made me chuckle. The banter made me grin. While I enjoyed both, I also enjoyed the serious moments they had as individuals and as a couple. They began as strangers and ended as lovers, growing and moving on as they did. They learned to trust each other with their hearts and secrets; to see the past as the past and to let it go; to embrace the possibility of a future filled with everything they never had because they each other. 3.5* Received from Enticing Journey Book Promotions for an honest review
