“I could do this forever, you know,” he whispered against her burning skin. He felt her heartbeat going wild as a vein throbbed under the tip of his tongue when he suckled a sensitive spot on the white column of her neck.
“I think we should,” she replied while her hands found the lower hem of his sweatshirt and lifted it, exposing his torso.
When her cool fingers touched the bare skin of his abdomen, close to the waistband of his sweatpants, Declan felt a scorching wave of heat radiating through his muscles. Shivers ran down his spine and he held her hands, “You know we shouldn’t.”
He stared into the crystal blue depths of her eyes and felt their pull; not much different from the sirens in the fairy tales, but he had to resist it. He would one day drown in the sea of pleasure her eyes promised. But not before she was ready for the plunge.
“I’d love to rip our clothes off and lose myself in you. You’re not ready, though. Not yet.”
She gazed into his eyes as if assessing his soul, “Our feelings grow stronger by the day. We’ve been through so much together. The difficulties we faced, and overcame, have strengthened our bond. It’s much more than physical attraction. Why do we have to wait? I want you. You want me. Are you sure I’m the one who’s not ready? Sometimes I think you’re the one running from these feelings.”
Keira has always loved listening to the stories of the Irish from her grandfather. She has always dreamed of the day that she could visit and that day has finally come. Off on her own to foreign country, she can’t wait for all her new adventures. One her first stop, she isn’t prepared for who’d she meet.
Declan has been hurt so many times that he is not interested in another relationship. When Keira walks into his bar he knew she could be the one, his one and only. In a very short time, their feelings seems to develope, but Declan insist that Keira keeps traveling Ireland and when she comes back to his town at the end of her trip they can spend time together.
Well, there time comes sooner then later and they end up spending more than just her last week together.
The Luck Of The Irish is a pretty good read. The characters seem a bit over their head at times, especially with emotions. Jumping into things way too quickly. The authors writing style was vague at times and too detailed at others. The story was all in all good one after finishing but I had some rough times getting through it. This gets three hearts from me.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
When Liz Gavin was in Second Grade – just a couple of years ago, really – her teacher told her mother the little girl should start a diary because she needed an outlet for her active and vivid imagination. She was a talkative child who would disrupt the class by engaging her colleagues in endless conversations. She loved telling them the stories her grandfather used to tell her.
Apparently, the teacher wasn’t a big fan of those stories, and Liz’s mother bought her a diary. She happily wrote on it for a couple of months. Unable to see the appeal of writing for her own enjoyment only, she gave up on it. She missed the audience her friends provided her in class. She went back to disturbing her dear teacher’s class.
Since then, she has become a hungry reader. She will read anything and everything she can get her hands on – from the classics to erotica. That’s how she has become a writer of erotica and romance, as well.
As a young adult, she participated in a student exchange program and lived in New Orleans for six months. She fell in love with the city and its wonderful inhabitants. NOLA will always hold a special spot in Liz Gavin’s heart. Nowadays, living in Brazil, Liz’s creativity has improved many times because it’s such a vibrant, gorgeous and sexy country.
Welcome to her world of hot Alpha males and naughty, independent women. Add a touch of the paranormal in the presence of some wicked souls and you’ll get the picture.
