William Moore is a long way from home. A farm boy from Oklahoma, he's now the most well-respected member of the Irish rugby team. But appearances are often deceptive, and Will isn't the clean-cut, all-American good guy everyone imagines him to be. He's got a secret, one that will tarnish his reputation forever. Josey Kavanagh is a self-proclaimed mess, but she's finally getting her shi...uh, act together. She's set her sights on becoming a veterinarian, but there's one teeny tiny road bump. Her living arrangements are coming to an abrupt end, leaving Josey homeless and in need of a job.

I read the reviews about the narrators and listened to the sample (which by the way doesn’t offer a glimpse of the female narrator) but I was very eager to find out about Will’s story that I decided to purchase the book.
The reviews are right, the voice is annoying as hell and the Irish accents from the previous books are, gone which is pretty disappointing since books 1-3 got is used to them.
Anyways, the book itself is good and super funny maybe they were trying to match her quirky personality with the voice but there has to had been a better choice.

Lucy Fitzpatrick doesn't like rugby. As the little sister of Ireland's most infamous rugby player, Lucy can't seem to escape the championship-sized shadow cast by her big brother, or her mother's frequent attempts to micromanage her future. Her rainbow hair is as free-spirited as her quest for inner peace, yet overbearing expectations keep bringing her down. And when she's down, her compulsive little problem lands her in seriously big trouble.

I had my reservations about this book because of the male protagonist, I learned to hate him in book one, but gosh this is such an amazing book. It had me gasping and laughing many, many times.
I loved all of the turns and twists, mostly the realization of his not-so-good aptitude, something I would fully expect in real life but never expected to see in a book, hahaha, still makes me laugh.

I heard about half of the book before I decided to stop torturing myself just to finish it and came to the conclusion that maybe I was not in the target audience because I couldn’t relate at all, the protagonist was in a depression, she couldn’t find anything to make her happy but she was also living in a life without struggles; rich, nice husband, good job, good kids

So when he turns his charms on his sister’s sexy rocker-chick friend Meg, he’s not only turned down, but met with open hostility, piquing his curiosity and libido.

The girl narrator (95% of the time) drove me nuts, voice too squeaky, kept thinking that was the voice of those mean/obnoxious girls from movies. The male narrator was awesome but only spoke like 5% of the time.
The story is ok but it was too predictable, the guy would say things that I think you would only hear in movies (not really realistic) and she will say things that were redundant to the story, I kept saying "dah!".

Just call me Mister O. Because your pleasure is my superpower. Making a woman feel "oh god that's good" is the name of the game, and if a man can't get the job done, he should get the hell out of the bedroom. I'm talking toe-curling, mind-blowing, sheet-grabbing ecstasy. Like I provide every time. I suppose that makes me a superhero of pleasure, and my mission is to always deliver.

It’s the rule - always watch your Fives and Twenty-Fives. When a convoy halts to investigate a possible roadside bomb, stay in the vehicle and scan five meters in every direction. A bomb inside five meters cuts through the armor, killing everyone in the truck. Once clear, get out and sweep twenty-five meters. A bomb inside twenty-five meters kills the dismounted scouts investigating the road ahead. Fives and Twenty-Fives marks the measure of a marine’s life in the road repair platoon.

As a Marine this book called me home, and when I realized they were combat engineers I was glued since I trained in the same base as them in MOS school. The story line is great, gut wrenching but very relatable however, I am a lot of words about the end, although it is realistic the dreamer in me hoped for something better

Over the past year, Travis Coleman lost the two people he allowed closest to his heart. Both gave him ultimatums, then left. Hell if he needs that kind of pain again. It's time to move forward without the friends he thought might save him from his dangerous cravings. But when Ashley Sims returns to Rocky Mountain House, her rambling lifestyle isn't all she's hoping to change. She hasn't given up on Travis. When Travis shows up on Cassidy Jones' turf with sensually uninhibited Ashley, passions flare.

The story is a very good one and different but if you have any hang ups about sex/relationships between two men then the book is not for you. I bought the book without reading a lot of reviews just because I had read and liked some of the previous ones on the series and at first I thought about returning it. However since I do not have an issue about bisexuality or homosexuality and I saw the story did have some back bone I decided to continue with it and really liked it.
