Shawn O’Callaghan loves his job as a screenwriter almost as much as he loves his family. But this latest project could quite possibly test his patience beyond anything he’s ever had to endure. Generally unflappable, the author he’s thrown into the trenches with pushes every button he has. Sometimes twice. And it doesn’t help that he can’t stop thinking about her in ways that are anything but professional. But how can he help it? The redhead is gorgeous beyond reason—and utterly infuriating.
Bestselling author Lexi Perry is finally about to leave her mark on the world; after all, seeing her dark and dangerous words brought to life is a dream come true. Until she meets the man who is supposed to make that happen. From the minute they laid eyes on each other, it was clear there would be tension, but she had no idea how much until they got down to business. He obviously doesn’t understand her vision. Though she’s having trouble lately too, given all she can picture is what he looks like under his clothes and imagining what it would sound like if he talked dirty to her in that sexy Irish lilt of his.
If they can find a way to meet in the middle, this movie could be one for the ages. As could their love.
Hello friends! It’s been over a year and a half since I’ve written a book review! Can you believe it?! I lost my love of reading during COVID when I feel into a depression. I’m out of it now and back on my reading kick! I recently celebrated my 50th birthday and got a kindle gift card for it – so I treated myself to a bunch of books by two of my favorite authors – Kristen Proby and Aurora Rose Reynolds. And a Meghan Quinn book that I want to re-read (which I never do; I’m evolving:) Anyway, on to the book review!
So book two of the O’Callaghan series focuses on brother Shawn. He’s a screenwriter tasked with turning a book into a screenplay for Luke Williams (With Me in Seattle series, book 1). Lexi, the writer, is a bit of an introvert. So much so that she thinks she’s agoraphobic. She’s in Seattle for a month to work out the screenplay with Shawn.
I had a hard time connecting with Lexi at first. She was very rigid and set in her ways. I immediately loved Shawn though. He was fun. It’s been a long while since I read book one, but it came back to me quickly, and the other O’Callaghan siblings all make an appearance. I LOVE them. I am Irish and have a big extended family, so I can really relate to this big Irish bunch.
After a while, I did start to warm up to Lexi as she started to come out of her shell. I did feel this book was a bit rushed and the romance moved really fast at points, then slow at others, if that makes sense. It was a little uneven, but still a really cute story that I would recommend. I can also loan it out since I own it, so if you’d like to read it, let me know and I would be happy to loan it to you!
I’ve already purchased books 3 and 4 and they are on the to read list.
