Reviewed by Water Lily

Research librarian Nan Galvin's days were fairly ordinary…until she came across a box of letters. They were glimpses into the life of the mother she hardly knew—which made her question everything she knew about herself. Now, Nan desperately needs the truth. And so she travels to Ireland, with its rolling green hills…and drop-dead gorgeous Irishmen!

Songwriter Riley Quinn isn't looking for The One. After all, a musician isn't meant to settle down. Of course, that was before he met the American girl who makes his blood burn like fire. He can't get enough of her. She's his muse, his lover, his woman.

And in a few days, she'll be going home…

The Mighty Quinns: Riley is a perfect example of a Harlequin Blaze book: gorgeous characters, steamy sex, and sexual attraction that overwhelms the characters and causes them to do things they normally wouldn’t do.

One look at Riley, the hot guy who is supposed to drive her to her vacation rental house, has super-organized, kind of persnickety, schedule-every-minute and budget-every-dime research librarian Nan Galvin chucking her plans and heading to bed with the guy she’s just met.

Riley and Nan’s relationship is fast and furious—a steamy vacation fling. It should fit carefree musician Riley’s personality more than Nan’s, but oddly enough it turns out to be the other way around. I understood Riley’s switch, but never really bought Nan’s.

What this book lacks in realistic character motivation on Nan's part, it makes up for in sexual chemistry. These two can’t get enough of each other and the book is hot, hot, hot. If you’re looking for a potato chip book--quick and spicy; not quality calories but still very satisfying--The Mighty Quinns: Riley is one to choose.
