Review: THE IRISH PRINCE by Virginia Nelson {giveaway}


The Irish Prince

by Virginia Nelson Billionaire Dynasties #2 
Publication Date: May 15, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Indulgence, Contemporary, Romance


I'm a big fan of the boss/employee trope in romance, and this is PERFECT!  

Aiden, known to the world as "The Irish Prince", is an uptight CEO who likes to be in control, and live up to his playboy reputation.  His assistant Chelsea, who has been working side by side with him for years, and she's had enough of his #$*&.  His playboy ways have broken the last straw and she's determined to quit.  

Enter the supermodel ex-girlfriend, and surprise! Aiden has a 10 year old daughter!  Determined to control the situation, he plans a trip to the Grand Canyon with his new found offspring, and insist Chelsea come along to help run interference with her.  

Although she didn't want to go, Chelsea agrees and things start heating up. Sparks fly as Aiden and Chelsea discover their feelings are stronger than simple attraction.  Meanwhile, the three of them grow close spending time together at the cabin.  But things go awry, and Aiden's need to control things blow up in his face.  But no worries, it's a romance!  There's a HEA for this couple and their new "family" and it left me with a smile!


The one thing I love the most about this book (and most of the Indulgence line by Entangled) is that even though it is the second of a series, it reads like a stand-alone.   I devoured this book in one day.  It's a quick read with all the feels in the right places.  I highly recommend this one to lovers of contemporary romance, who like great banter, yummy hot bedroom scenes and a feel-good HEA.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*

SYNOPSIS:

CEO Aiden Kelley’s life of billionaire extravagance is flipped upside down when his ex shows up with a ten-year-old she claims is his. Totally out of his element and losing the control so integral to his success, he needs help. To top it all off, the only constant woman in his life, his executive assistant, has given notice just when he needs her help to survive his newfound fatherhood. Chelsea Houston is an executive assistant, not a nanny. The only person more clueless about kids is her boss. Helping him on a daddy-daughter road trip is her last task before he’ll accept her two weeks’ notice and she can be free of the infuriating man she’s had a crush on for longer than she’d admit. Aiden’s carefully ordered life has never been so disorganized, and he’s suddenly tempted by the things he thought he could never have. Things like love and family. Who knew chaos could be so damn fun?

Death has never looked so grim.

TRE_500 
About The Reaper's Embrace:

Only thing is, Brent Hume, Grim Reaper and love of my life, is hot on my trail, zeroing in on the mark that beckons him. The Reaper’s instinct cannot be denied. He would sooner stop breathing than ignore a Deathmark’s call. He’s a tireless supernatural hunter, and I’m his top prey.

EXCERPT:

We sipped our drinks. A strip of foam clung to his upper lip before he licked it away. Brent appeared to want to smile, like he was trying to be flirtatious, but there was a heft to his gaze. I lowered my mug of coffee to its saucer. I was ready to talk if he had something to share.
“I have a secret,” he said, his voice low and hushed.
I raised my eyebrows. Go on.
“I don’t like coffee.”
My eyebrows rose higher if that was even possible. “You what?”
“I don’t like it. Too bitter.”
How do I not know this? “But we’ve had coffee together more than once.”
“I know.”
“Then...if you wanted to tell me this now, why did you order a coffee?"
“Because it’s the hip thing to do, right?” Suddenly Brent looked a little sheepish. Knowing what he could do and the power that he held, his slightly hunched shoulders and scrunched brow became humorous to me. “Why are you laughing?”
“I’m not.” I snorted. “Okay, I am.”
He allowed me the time that I needed to laugh, so I made sure to enjoy the moment. In that time, he sipped his coffee, making a face as he did. Once I had enough, I quieted down, composed myself, and then took a drink of my own coffee. The slightly fruity flavor warmed me through and through. “I didn’t bring you here to confess that I hate coffee. Although I did worry you’d break up with me for it. I sort of lose my charm without a coffee in my hand, huh?”
I cocked my head to one side.
“Well, now that you say it, you sorta do.”
Hurt crept into the corners of his eyes, but I knew he knew that it was a joke. Still.
“I’m teasing,” I said. “I’d never dump you over coffee, even Le Nektar coffee. But do you think you can tell me why we’re really here?”



About the Author:

About THE BOSS:

Sick of the spy game, former CIA operative Vic Walker takes time off from his security firm to figure out just what he wants out of life. But peace and quiet isn’t in the cards with a former business partner and ex-lover like MacKenzie Donovan. Mac doesn’t like asking for help from anyone, but this latest case has her in a little over her head. She crashes back into Vic’s life with the CIA, the Russian Mob, and the FBI, on her tail after a job goes south. But even as old feelings rise to the surface while they’re busy dodging bullets, the authorities, and mobsters, they’ll need to get out alive before they can have a second chance at love.
 

About Melissa Schroeder:

From an early age, USA Today Bestselling author Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book. Since her first published book , Mel has had over 60 short stories, novellas, and novels published. She has written in genres ranging from historical to contemporary to futuristic and has worked with 8 publishers although she handles most of her publishing herself. She is best known for her Harmless and Santini series. After years of following her military husband around the country and world, Mel happily lives with her family in horse and wine country in Northern Virginia.

About BURN:

Chloe Addison is on the verge of a promising career in real estate development until an explosion destroys her first major project and casts suspicion on her in an arson investigation.

Despite a painful past of his own, Ryan has dedicated himself to saving people, and when he realizes Chloe is in danger, she’s no exception. He just might be the perfect guy to rescue her, but their attraction could bring them both down in flames.

About Dawn Altieri:

A lifelong resident of northern New Jersey, Dawn Altieri has been scribbling stories practically since birth. After reaching a milestone birthday (she won’t say which one), she figured it was about time she took a shot at writing professionally. With an overactive imagination and a slightly twisted mind, she enjoys reading dark and dangerous tales almost as much as writing them. When she’s not curled up on the sofa with her laptop, her latest story, a box of chocolates and a cup of tea (or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day), she can be found volunteering in the world of animal rescue. She shares her home with her husband and daughter, and a menagerie of rescued fur-babies
