Review: Straight Up Irish

Straight Up Irish Straight Up Irish by Magan Vernon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Connor Murphy is one of three brothers who run their family business. Their father had started the multimillion dollar company many years ago and had just recently passed. Connor, who’s based in the US and running the American side of things, comes back home for the funeral and reading of the will. The brothers are shocked to their core when the lawyer informs them that they each need to be married in a specific amount of time, or the board can buy the company.

You see, none of the three even have a girlfriend, let alone someone they are serious about. In fact, the only woman Connor talks to frequently is Fallon, his brother’s assistant who often bails him out of whatever trouble he’s in. Connor’s most definitely a playboy with no desire to settle down.

Fallon left the US for Ireland after getting her degree to work for Jack Murphy. She was looking for a job that would get her away from her terrible parents, yet also allow her to make enough to pay for her grandmother’s nursing home.

Connor hatches a plan to ask Fallon to be his fake wife. In return for living with him for the required length of time, he will pay for her grandmothers nursing home and also pay off student loans.

This was a great book. I enjoyed the witty banter between the two, and they were so cute as a couple, their chemistry leapt off the pages. I loved the fact that Fallon wasn’t after Connor’s money. She didn’t like getting lavish gifts from him and hated when he spent money on her. Ms. Vernon has a way with words that keeps your attention (at least mine) from beginning to end. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!!
