A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.
An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.
We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.
Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.
In New York.
And he’s America’s music obsession.
The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.
The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.
Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.
But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.
I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.
I have a career I love.
A boyfriend I adore.
An apartment, a roommate, a life.
I changed. He changed, too.
But Mal kept the napkin.
Question is, will I keep my word?
Review by Tenise
I borrowed this book from Kindle Unlimited.
Fast forward 8 years and their paths cross again. Is it just a coincidence? Or is it kismet like Mal said all those years ago? And the biggest question- will they drop everything for a silly little pact wrote on the back of a napkin?
Oh my! This book was full of angst and comedy, which aren’t really things often thought of together but it definitely worked in the telling of this story. There were many hilarious one liners- I was highlighting passages like crazy! I had lots of questions (that were answered in time.) I laughed. I cried. I even laughed until I cried. I loved this book so freaking hard! It has been my favorite book of 2020 thus far.
I give it 5 stars plus 2!
