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?

I found Her Best Laid Plans while searching for books set in Ireland. Between the cover, the ‘Cosmo Red-Hot Reads’ label, and the fact the book is a novella, I was expecting more sex than story. I figured it’d be a quick, sexy read, and while there was some super hot sex in this book (like SUPER HOT OMG), it also had a great plot and fleshed-out characters.

I really liked Jamie and Connor. I sympathized with Jamie and her reasons for visiting Ireland and needing a break from real life. I appreciated that while she and Connor had instant chemistry, it never felt rushed or forced. It can be really hard to find a balance in novellas, and I think McKenna did a fantastic job. It felt like Jamie and Connor actually got to know each other, and while they promised no strings or expectations beyond Jamie’s visit to Ireland, it was easy to root for them and hope they’d find a way to make it work. Then there were the sex scenes. Holy wow. The ‘red-hot reads’ is definitely accurate. I was glad the book wasn’t all sex all the time, but I sure did enjoy Jamie and Connor’s sexytimes!

If you’re looking for a quick, sexy, funny, sweet read I highly recommend Her Best Laid Plans. I thoroughly enjoyed this story from beginning to end.

Have you read Her Best Laid Plans? What did you think? If you haven't read it, do you plan to?
