BACK COVER BLURB:
Wild Irish, Book Seven
The child who is born on the Sabbath day, is bonny and blithe and good and gay.
Sean Collins is happy working at the family pub and sharing a house with the woman of his dreams. He and Lauren are equals in every way, including in bed, where they burn the sheets. Life is good. Even if he must hide a couple of secrets to keep it that way.
Lauren is madly in love with Sean. They share everything—almost. She can’t deny sensing…something. A certain feeling when she, Sean and their friend Chad are all together. But she doesn’t press. How can she when she’s not being completely forthright herself?
Chad is feeling pretty miserable, and renting a room in Sean and Lauren’s home has only made it worse. In a house filled with secrets, Chad’s are doozies.
When an opportunity arises to explore their deep desires, the trio plunges into a sex-filled, emotionally charged ménage. Long-buried feelings are revealed, changing their lives irrevocably. Whether for better or worse, only Sean, Chad and Lauren can decide
I’m shocked. This isn’t bad. I don’t usually like Ellora’s Cave covers.
“Where’s Chad?” Lauren asked breathlessly as they entered Sean’s apartment.
Sean rested his forehead against hers for an extra second or two before pulling away from the kiss they’d just shared.
LYNETTE'S TWO CENTS:
ANY GIVEN SUNDAY was a short, steamy read that captured my attention early on and held it. I really enjoyed the push/pull between what their heads was telling them to do and their hearts. Ms. Carr did an awesome job of showing that conflict. And to be honest the smexing was pretty hot. Very hot.
Despite my enjoyment, I did have a couple quibbles with ANY GIVEN SUNDAY. The first being that ANY GIVEN SUNDAY was overrun with characters from the other books in this series. I wish that these encounters could’ve been toned down to only be included if it effected the relationship between Lauren, Chad, and Sean, because as it was written it was a major distraction at times. I was also bothered that the catalyst that has them deciding that they wanted to explore a ménage/bdsm relationship came from an outside source instead of within themselves, especially as Ms. Carr did an awesome job of setting up the conflict, angst, fears, and pitfalls if they decided to just let go and pursue the relationship.
As I said, those were minor quibbles. ANY GIVEN SUNDAY was a solid read and I’ll definitely read more of this author.
