Publisher's Summary

My name is Andrew McCarthy. You may have heard of me. Or heard whispers about me. I’m the man your nightmares are made of. I’m the man who is the source of your fantasies. I’m the devil in the darkness. I’m the man of your dreams.

Desire and darkness. Fantasy and fear. I am the head of the McCarthy mob. Anything I want, I get. And the first time I see her - Kyra Bahmer - I know she belongs to me. I know I will have her.

And the men who think they can take her from me? I will kill them all. Because, no one stands in my way. No one comes between me and what’s mine. No one harms my family. Because, I’m the Irishman. And Kyra Bahmer is going to be my wife.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

Warning: This book is a dark romance. The hero is not your typical hero. He is a bad guy. He will not be redeemed from the illegal, violent things that he does. This book contains explicit violence, extremely rough sex, mentions of child abuse and sexual assault, and drug use/abuse which may be triggering for some listeners. It is intended for adults 18 and above. You have been warned.

Could not finish

This is a BWWM romance novel. Andrew is an Irish mobster in love at first sight with Kyra. Kyra is a black female whose very independent and plans to stay single. Two strong leads, some back-and-forth and then sex all over the place. There is no substance. Nobody is likable. Narrators are great.

Irishman

I like to have a character I can relate to. The main characters were both insane crazy violent people. And lots of sex to the point there was way more sex than story so it got boring. I gave up half way through.

Yes!

I loved it! Jonathan Waters did a great job of narrating. Hot, hot, hot! Too bad there won't be anymore books. I wish one of my favorite authors in this genre would take up the task. Keta Kendric, Kenya Wright, Sonja B., Amarie Avant, too many to name, but any one of them could do this story justice.

The Irishman

This book was not what I expected. This was a new author to me. i really enjoyed this book. Andrew is the Irish Mob Boss and he instantly is attracted to Kira. Kira is no stranger to the dark side of Andrew"s world. She is the Head bad Bitch of Boston. Even though their worlds are intertwined, they couldn't be more different. But somehow they beat diversity and unite their two groups of people to make a stronger unit. This is the first book in the series. I can't wait to find out what will happen next. Jonathan Waters did a great job narrating.

meh

A lot of smexy times and violence. I didn't like the heroine and didn't connect with her. She seemed out of place in this story. I guess I need to read blurbs. Not for me. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing it to life.

Love love the narrator but

I love everything about this audio but every time I pause it it keeps going back to the beginning so I do not know what’s going on so I end up starting the audio all over reloading it to make it work and it keeps doing the same thing so hopefully they get this fixed and go from there. Overall the book was awesome associate young great job for the narrator Jonathan Waters did amazing job

Bad. Really Bad.

I couldn't get through this ridiculous dialogue. The plot is plain silly. The overacting got me too.

Loved it!

Great read, lots of sexy reading. I really appreciate a strong female character that finds an equally strong male. I love that he knew he wanted her and went after her.

Just okay for me. 💜

This story had great potential and addresses racism and other great issues however, I feel like there was not enough story to go with all the hot sex and murders.
The narration was fantastic.
This is book 1 and continues in the next book.

Irish

Jonathan Waters , wow. Your Irish accent, was spot on. You nailed it. It is one of my pet hates, when someone does a Irish accent and comes out Scottish. Jonathan Waters did a brilliant, with the accent and narration of the story.

Andrew McCarthy as the head of the Irish mob, and though not looking for a woman, well that is until he sees Kyra Bahmer . Kyra is a strong, woman, heading her own crew, Her crew are all women, Two very strong alpha characters. So good together.

Hot hot hot scenes . Oh yes hot.

Irish Mob Boss

The Irishman is the fabulous mafia romance and an excellent start to the series. The storyline is involved and engaging; I was captivated from beginning to end. The characters are well-developed with genuine depth to their personalities. An outstanding performance by Jonathan Waters, I absolutely love his voice. With his telling, he brought the characters and the story to life. Overall, this was a very enjoyable listen, and I highly recommend it.

Action packed and full of steam!

If you love mafia like I do, you will enjoy this story. The Irishman is features Andrew McCarthy as the head of the Irish mob, and though not looking for a woman, he spots Kyra Bahmer and claims her for his own. Kyra is a strong, black woman, heading her own crew, but hers is a little different from Andrew's. It's all women, and boy are they strong! As their relationship flourishes, there are some rumblings in the McCarthy family about Andrew's choices, as we find out the true meaning of family and the secrets that are being kept. Will Andrew and Kyra's love survive? These two alpha characters are so good together. It's the butting of the heads and high level banter leading to the extreme passion they have that make the story move. It's full of action, and shows us how you never know where you will find love or with whom. It's a fast paced, desirable listen!

With the mention of the Irish mafia, I was anxious to hear Jonathan Waters with an Irish accent, and he nails it! I loved him as Andrew and the various characters. He pulls off that alpha male with ease and quickly transitions to Kyra with an attitude to match. He makes this story worth the listen!
