Before I start reading this, I just want to say that I love the cover!

After I read this book, I've come to the conclusion that I want to marry an Irish man, and not just any Irish man, but one that is exactly like Ronan.
And the reason why is because I instantly fell in love with Ronan from the moment the story first introduced him. And not because of his good looks, though they would probably give any woman a run for her money, but because of his sweet Scottish accent that had me hooked at the start and how truly he loved Blánaid, despite knowing that she most likely wouldn’t return his love.
But as for Blánaid, my feelings for her often changed throughout the story. At most times I would understand her reactions to the situations that she went through, for I would have probably reacted the same way, and other times I just wanted to slap her and say “Man up would you!” But in the end, I think my conflicting feelings towards this character were because of her naivety to love reminded me so much of myself.
As well as the story in general though, I have nothing bad to say about it.
Kemberlee Shortland takes this regular romance and turns it into something beautiful with her amazing talent for writing. You'll be whisked within the pages as you experience a journey of love, friendship, and heartbreak. And in the end, the only disappointment you will have is that it ended.
All in all, being the first book that I have read from Kemberlee Shortland, I have to say that I am quite impressed and will be looking forward to reading more of her work in the near future.
Disclaimer: This is my honest opinion on the book.In no means was I swayed to write this review.
