Interior designer Jordan Kennally is furious when she's shut out of the family business and assigned to convert an old mansion…in Ireland. So long, Big Apple; hello, Emerald Isle! But then Jordan catches a glimpse of blacksmith Danny Quinn. Maybe there is such a thing as the luck o' the Irish…and she's hoping she's about to get really lucky.
The attraction between them is instantaneous… and electric. And Danny isn't shy about introducing Jordan to another kind of Irish hospitality – one that uses beds in a far more interesting way. But she's his boss. He's an artist. Is it just a matter of time before her luck – and getting lucky with Danny – runs out?

The Mighty Quinns: Danny was a pretty good book, if predictable at times and very rushed in the HEA department. I was in love with the fact that it is a contemporary set in Ireland and the hero is Irish. That is a big weakness of mine.
I listened to this book on audio. OH GOD. Do not do this! While the story was pretty good, a solid 3, perhaps even 3 ½ stars, the narrator was a lowly 1 star for me.
The narrator's “regular” voice for much of the story was perfectly fine. Her Irish accents, especially Danny's, were done well, too. But when she did Jordan's voice, she would switch, randomly, from a “regular” voice to a fake New Jersey accent . . . And Jordan is from New York. I'm not an expert on accents, but this accent did NOT sound like a NY native. The sound of it grated on my nerves, and the fact that the narrator would pick up and drop this accent so randomly made me twitch. One sentence Jordan would be talking in a manner that did not bother me to listen to, the next sentence/paragraph/page she would be fake NJ. Ugh.
While it is from the Blaze line, the sex was practically MIA and what was there (3 very quick scenes, I believe) bored me. I'm not asking for highly erotic and unusual scenes from every author, but if it's a Blaze, I do expect a much higher heat level than this!
Would I read another book by Kate Hoffman? Probably, there are plenty of Quinn men to choose from (almost 30 in this series it looks like!). Would I listened to another audio book by Chloe Campbell? Hm . . . I honestly don't think so. How could I be sure she wouldn't throw a random Southern accent in with an English accent or something?
Overall Story: 3 STARS!
Probably, i really enjoyed all the Quinn books so far, the narration is fantastic as well.
Its just as great as the others
