They say bad things happen in threes. After my boyfriend broke off our engagement, I lost my apartment, and was laid off from my job, I can definitely attest to that.
They also say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures. So when my two sisters invited me to ring in the new year in Ireland, I decided to throw all caution to the wind and go for it. I was going to let "saying yes" be my new resolution.
Little did I know I'd spend New Year's Eve having a hot and dirty one-night stand with Padraig McCarthy, one hell of a sexy Irishman. I also didn't know that the brooding and intense sex god was one of Ireland's top rugby players. A rugby player with a proposition for me: come with him to his tiny hometown of Shambles and pretend to be his fiancee for a few days, just so that his ailing father can have some peace of mind.
It sounded simple enough. It was anything but. Not when a town gets up in your business, not when the media hunts you down, not when your past comes back in the picture, not when there are real hearts and feelings at stake.
They say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures. This is my life in Shambles.

Brings my favorite book to life beautifully
Human soulmates are fine and good, but if you've ever found your soul in a book- well, the feeling of hearing that brought to life by capable and emotive narrators is a whole different level.
Both narrators do a gorgeous job with Padraig and Valerie, and all the emotional twists and depth of their story. I was a little worried, but this is absolutely flawless.
