Irish Kiss - Sienna Blake

Available via Kindle Unlimited

I wanted him since the day I met him. Long haired, tattooed and tall as an Irish giant. He was more than just handsome, he was drop dead gorgeous. And the only one who ever truly cared. It didn’t matter to him that my father was a criminal and my mother a whore. He saw me, understood me.

I could be anything I wanted, he said.
Except his.
Because I was too young and he was my Juvenile Liaison Officer.

It’s been years since I last saw her. No longer a girl, she has a body of a woman. When our eyes met again, I saw the only one who ever broke through my asshole mask. She never judged me. She saw me, accepted me.

She could be anything she wanted.
Except mine.
Cause she’s only seventeen and I’m trying my hardest not to fall for her.

If I give in, she will ruin me.

*This is a slow-burn, angsty love story spanning across a seven-year time period with sexual situations and drug-use involving characters under the age of eighteen.
Irish Kiss is a complete standalone novel with a Happily Ever After, but damn, it is going to hurt along the way.*

My Review

It probably won't surprise you to learn that I really enjoyed Irish Kiss. I don't think that I've read a book by Siena Blake that I haven't really enjoyed. So, as I say, really not a big surprise. There are a number of reasons why her books are so good. Partly it is down to the story itself, partly how well drawn the characters are and then there are the relationships within the stories.

Like many of her other books, the relationships between the characters in Siena Blakes latest book are quite complicated. This time, we have the story of Saoirse and Diarmuid.  They meet when Saorise is only 13 years old. Obviously far too young for a relationship to develop at this stage, but there is a real connection between Saoirse and Diarmuid.

When they meet years later, when Saoirse is 17, this connection soon develops into something much much more. On paper, the idea of a 17-year-old getting into a relationship with someone who is supposed to be in a position of authority, might not sound ideal. This is so well written though and the relationship so lovely, that it really doesn't matter. 

I really enjoyed Saoirse and Diarmuid's story. I loved the way that it unfolded and they found their way together. This is the first in, I believe three stories. I can't wait to read the next one.

Sienna Blake is a storyteller & inkslnger, wordspinner of love stories with grit, and alter ego of a USA Today Bestselling Author.

She loves all things that make her heart race — rollercoasters, thrillers and rowdy unrestrained sex. She likes to explore the darker side of human nature in her writing.

If she told you who she really was, she’d have to kill you. Because of her passion for crime and forensics, she’d totally get away with your murder.
