I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
My professor gave me my first D.
Now my next assignment is due…in nine months.
You know when you meet your new professor, and he ends up being the same man you had a one-night stand with three months ago?
Okay, maybe not. Let me explain.
I hadn’t intended to sleep with my professor. I might be known as the impulsive, prankster daughter in my family, but I’m not insane. I just wanted to have some fun in Ireland at my sister’s wedding, and maybe lose my virginity, too.
When I met Lochlann Gallagher at a pub one night, I couldn’t resist him. He was hot, Irish, and entirely set on seducing me. One unforgettable night under the sheets with him, and my V-card went up in smoke.
Well, that night had one itty bitty consequence because Lochlann totally made my eggo preggo.
And if this story isn’t crazy enough, Lochlann is not just my baby daddy: he’s now my professor and my advisor for grad school.
Somehow we have to figure out a way not to reveal this rapidly gestating secret while resisting the explosive attraction between us.
Except there’s just one more complication to this story: I think I’m totally falling for my baby daddy.
“Honestly, if anyone knew how many voices I had in my head I’d probably be committed.”
And that my reading friends, is the most authentic introduction to Kate Wright that I can conjure. That line instantly connected me to Kate – because heck, as an avid reader I have many voices in my head too. The thing with Kate is that MOST of her dialogue is not inner at all, she’s very much an open book and I am super excited to have her story. Given Kate’s unique brand of “Moxy,” there are a few things that I found surprising. She’s entertaining, to say the least, but she’s also more vulnerable than I ever imagined.
The youngest of the Wright daughters, Kate, was herself an ooops baby and while she doesn’t seem maternal at all, she is clearly headed there. And the schmexy Irish man who is her baby daddy, Lochlann, is also a graduate advisor, making this is a forbidden love story. It just takes a bit to get to the love part, making a slow burn story as well. The fact these two can’t keep their hands off each other only heightens the combination of illicit and funny/laugh out loud reading experience.
That said, there are a few moments with Kate that I wanted to shake her, and I would say most would find her initial reaction to finding Lochlann in the office as her professor a little off-putting. She’s a smart girl, but clearly not great at the thinking on her feet where her emotions are involved. But I love her heart and her intentions. The entire situation is fraught with consequences and as Lochlann tries to do the right thing, he slowly learns it’s not exactly cut and dry as to what that is.
As expected this was a light yet emotional read. I love the Wright daughters, the parents and the men that have ended up in their lives and have really enjoyed each of their books. Iris Morland was a new to me author when I started this series and I am so glad to have found her.
