Maggie is happy to be in Ireland for her best friend’s wedding, but she feels a bit down.  Finding out her ex-fiancé was cheating on her has dampened her spirits and killed her trust in men.  Maggie meets a new man, who seems to show up when she needs help the most.  The attraction to him is strong, even though Maggie isn’t sure that Ethan is available. 

The ink on Ethan’s divorce papers isn’t even dry before he finds himself kissing Maggie.  The last thing he wanted was to get involved in a relationship of any kind, but Ethan knew his days as a single man were going to be very few.  Maggie was too tempting to ignore from the moment he laid eyes on her.   

The explosive sex between Ethan and Maggie and the intrusion of their exes complicate things more.  In a short time, their feelings had grown deeper than either wanted to admit,  especially to each other.  Maggie’s time to return home was quickly approaching, but she was torn. 

Irish Dreams is what can happen when you least expect it.  Two people find love when they didn’t want it.  Both had been burned and were unsure about the opposite sex.  Maggie’s ex was far worse than Ethan’s.  Not only was he a complete jerk, but he also seemed delusional and dangerous.  I was disappointed that he wasn’t dealt with in a more severe manner.  I get the fact that Maggie wanted to move on with her new life with Ethan, but it was difficult to believe.   If you love a good happily-ever-after, you will enjoy this story.
