Beers, Hens and Irishmen by Meghan Quinn - Book Review

Book Title: Beers, Hens and Irishmen (Warblers Point #1)
Author: Meghan Quinn
Pages: 264

Synopsis: Fiona O’Leary wants nothing more than to flee away from the small town she grew up in, her three extremely over protective brothers, and her Irish parents. But leaving Warblers Point is not that simple, especially when she is the bar maid at the local pub she owns with her three brothers. After a two year relationship with local Irishman, Murphy Ryan, sharing nothing but each other’s beds, she realizes she wants more out of a relationship besides sex. But somehow she keeps winding up in his arms wishing she could break away but finds the task impossible when her family is head over heels in love of the idea of Murphy and Fiona together.

Booker Hall, world re-known director, finds himself living an empty and unfulfilled life. The people around him are fake, narcissistic and only care about his money. In an act of desperation he decides to enlist his sister for some help, give himself a makeover and go to a place where no one would recognize him. Never did he think he was going to fall in love with an unsuspecting bar maid with whiskey colored eyes and an over-bearing family.

The minute Fiona lays eyes on Booker, she knows she is sunk. His devilish grin, movie star looks and charming heart are hard to avoid and she constantly finds herself gravitating toward him. The only bad thing about Booker is that he is a tourist and living in a touristy town she has learned that getting involved with a non-local only brings heartache. Instead of giving into Booker, she finds herself debating which relationship is safer; an empty relationship but fulfilling sex life with Murphy or a deep and meaningful relationship with Booker that could only bring heartache.

Beers, Hens and Irishmen dives into the complexity of Fiona’s love life, the crazy antics of her three brothers, as well as her two overbearing and heavily Irish speaking parents. Fists fly, hearts are broken, beer is guzzled and deceit is formed amongst comrades while the O’Leary’s take over Warblers Point in the search for love and what makes them happy.

My Review: I saw this book on my friends kindle a couple of months ago and recently I asked her if I could read it because it really interested me (I love anything Irish ever since I was very young, I just find Ireland so beautiful (also Scotland but that doesn't matter here haha)), and yes I know this story doesn't take place in Ireland but it does have Irish characters and well yeah I loved that haha.

I fell in love with this story and the characters the moment I started reading, even though I didn't like Booker in the beginning, but I got over that the more I read the story and I ended up loving Booker, although I am more in love with Fiona's brothers haha (for obvious reasons :P)

I read this story in one day, I had to walk my dogs out and while I was walking them I took my friends Kindle with me on the walk and just read haha (it was really hard to walk and read and try to be careful with where I was walking haha), I just couldn't put it down I had to finish reading it and know what happened and boy I am so happy with how it ended up (well except for a few things I won't talk about because they are spoilers)

I don't have too much more to say about this book except for that I absolutely loved it and I need the second books in my hands, I just need it haha.

Stars: 5 stars out of 5

Would you re-read it ?: Yes I definitely am sure that I will reread this book sometime in the future, I really loved the characters in this book and I already miss them :/
