Review Copy:
ARC from NetGalley*

She walked away once.

When Kathryn Irish realized that she and Daniel were too different—and that he thought she was after him for his money—she ended things. When a job randomly puts her back on his radar, they hesitantly form a truce. But deep down she knows she can never be just friends with him. She’ll always want more.

He never should have let her go.

Daniel MacArthur knows he made the biggest mistake of his life in letting Kathryn walk away. When she suddenly appears back in his life, it’s not a moment too soon—since she’s been targeted twice by a faceless enemy. She thinks the two attacks are random. But he’s not so sure. Is it because of her job? Or is something more sinister at play?

Initial Thoughts/Expectations:
I must tell you; I received an advanced copy of this book to provide an honest review of the work. I am a HUGE Katie Reus fan and have read a lot of her books. I did not even read the blurb on the back. I fully expected a book that would draw me in and hold me to the end. 

What I Loved:
The author did not disappoint me. FALLING FOR IRISH is the first book in a new MacArthur Family Series and I absolutely loved it.   From the start, there was action. As things began unfolding, the main female character – Kathryn Irish – is not only trying to complete her mission, but also not get caught by the man she once loved – Daniel MacArthur. The chemistry between these two is still off the charts but their relationship is a thing of the past…or is it? Daniel MacArthur cannot forget Kathryn, don’t understand why they broke up, and is determined to get her back. I love a man who clearly knows what he wants and goes for it. As the story plays out, we get to explore what is wrong about their relationship and what is right.  I find myself rooting for Daniel to get his way.  There is danger, but that makes the book even more enticing to me. I love that there was suspense mixed in with all this heat.  I was hooked once I started reading.

What I didn’t Love:
In my opinion, there was little not to like about this book. The main conflict of this story was based on incorrect interpretations of a single event. The one thing that gets my goat in general is when a relationship is ruined simply because the main characters do not discuss their feelings. Now, I must say, I shy away from confrontations in my life so maybe that is why I do not like it in the books I read. 

Final Thoughts:
I am excited for any book that is written by this author. I fully expect this series to be another series that will continue to draw me in and warm my heart. I am already emotionally invested. I totally recommend this book if you love a good love story with strong characters, a supporting family, and danger around the corner. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series!! GREAT JOB, Ms. Reus.
