My Review

*ARC Provided for an Honest Review*

I can't help but feel like I have read this book before. I think I might really have read it before but I just did not put up a review about it. This book talked about troubled past, clubs, and IRA's. I was anxious while I was reading the book because it felt like both characters are holding back. Aibhlinn, which is a really cool name by the way, was just waiting on Enzo and they are now 34 years old which is kind of a long time to wait on but very understandable for the female but for Enzo, him holding back kind of pissed me off at the same time confused with where his mind really is.

The cuteness and well, the anticipation of the characters to finally be together got me through. Just when I thought of skipping an angel was put on the spotlight and from there on everything even out for the characters and it has pushed them to finally see what they have before they actually lose it. I enjoyed the book for the most part. There were some parts that were annoying but all in all it entertained me. The author is not new to me and I'm happy that once again she satisfied me with her work.


Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She's always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration.

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household.

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
