O’Brien Family, Book 5
Synopsis: Three weddings. No date. What’s a hot stud to do when all the women on his speed dial are either serving dinner to their families or serving time?
Out of all the O’Briens, Seamus is the best-looking, most creative, and, did I mention, best-looking? Single at almost forty wasn’t a big deal until every sibling in his large and loud Irish family found “the one.” Now, he’s desperate for a wedding date, one he doesn’t have to worry will make out with the limo driver or rob the bride and groom blind.
Allie Mendes is the good daughter, who’s spent her life living in her perfect sister’s shadow. But when her sister steals the man Allie was supposed to marry, that shadow she’s lived in threatens to swallow her whole. Allie wants to believe a bright future awaits. But when she begs God to save her from this disastrous twist of fate, the last person she expects Him to send her is Seamus O’Brien.
Allie needs a stand-in boyfriend to avoid appearing as lonely as she feels. Seamus needs a decent woman without an ankle bracelet or a rap sheet as long as his muscular arms. The two make a deal to pose as each other’s perfect date. But weddings mean romance and a chance at forever neither had planned.
Review: It’s finally Seamus’ turn to present his story and as for all the novels in the series, I was really looking forward to immerse myself in this new story! It must be said that Cecy Robson rarely disappoints!
We discover this O’Brien brother and Allie, two characters that everything seems to oppose! While all his siblings have found their half and are about to get married, the oldest of all seems irretrievably alone. But now, the marriage is approaching, he is spoiled and he is determined to prove to them that he can find a nice girl! For her part, Allie is a pretty lonely young woman and while her sister is the one who has everything « beautiful, intelligent, famous », she seems to live in her shadow, while she doesn’t say a thing because « this is family ». But the marriage of her sister with her ex, an ex she thought to marry before is difficult for her. Therefore she sees an opportunity when Seamus agrees to make an agreement and passes for her boyfriend, if she wants to do the same for him!
I really liked this novel and I must say that I easily connected to Allie. She tries to do her best in her family and yet she is treated in an execrable way by her mother or even by her sister. I was happy to see her change, to gain confidence and finally to manage to say stop even if it’s not easy. Her meeting with Seamus will change everything. It must be said that he has everything for him! Yet he must overcome his past as well.
It was a great novel! As I said Cecy Robson always manages to get me into her stories and Save Me is a perfect example! I strongly advise you to try her series. They are all fantastic!
