Crew Costa isn’t Irish, but for a kid from the school of hard knocks, he’s had the luck of the Irish with his chain of faux-Irish pubs, O’Shaughnessy’s Shenanigans. Number 13 is set to open in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The Bronx is already the site of several authentic Irish pubs, including The Lion O’Brien. Started by Liam O’Brien, the pub is now managed by his youngest daughter Siobhan, but only after her four older brothers refused the job. Now Siobhan has to prove she is worthy. 

Siobhan falls for Crew, literally, after they collide while he is moving into her apartment building. Their attraction is immediate and powerful, but they are rivals. Siobhan is counting on the Lion winning the St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl, which Crew has entered as well. The lead-up to the event involves “pranking” your competition, and the older pubs band together against the gaudy newcomer, with its McNaughty the Leprechaun and other cultural stereotypes. For Crew and Siobhan, the pranking quickly gets personal and expensive. 

Siobhan and Crew can’t resist the electricity between them, but can Siobhan trust this streetwise charmer? Can Crew trust this daddy’s girl whose overriding passion is her pub? And will the rage brewing among the other pub owners put their lives in danger?

My Thoughts:

This book follows both Crew Costa and Siobhan O'Brien they are both involved in the St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl.  Part of the crawl is pranking other pub owners but when the tricks go to far Crew and Siobhan wonder what is going on?  Crew has had a hard life and done things he had to get by whether they were proper or not.  Can he let Siobhan in or is he destined to keep traveling city to city with no love life?

Siobhan O'Brien hasn't had the greatest love life.  One boy back in high school is the extent of her experience.  Siobhan spends most of her time trying to get her father's approval with the pub. She may not be her brothers but that doesn't change her love of The Lion their family pub.  When she meets Crew she finds herself drawn to him which only makes matters worse when she finds out that Crew owns a chain of faux irish bars.  As it gets closer to the pub crawl the tension between them rises.  Can Siobhan be true to Crew or will her being so naive work against her?

Someone is sabotaging the pranks and making them more severe.  Somebody is out to destroy the pubs but why?  Everything from bugs and fire.  Could it be one of the pub owners or someone out to get revenge of some sort?

This book is great as a continued book of the first one we get to see what Siobhan and others are up too.  Also seeing Siobhan fall in love and her determination to get her father's trust and support with the pub.  This was a great journey to go on and I would go back and visit them again and again!  Can't wait to see what is next for the O'Brien's!
