Irish Rogue: An Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance (The Donnellys) (Brooklyn Kings) by LK Shaw

Irish Rogue: An Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance (The Donnellys) (Brooklyn Kings) by LK Shaw

Description

Anya

Five years ago I was sold. Used. Abused. Now, I’m broken. My loving family thinks a husband will fix me. I have no desire to get married, but I’ll give them what they want. Except it will be on my terms. And I know just the person to ask.

Paddy

Getting married is at the top of the list of things I swore I’d never do. So there’s no way I’ll agree to Anya’s ridiculous proposition. Yet, somehow, I find myself saying yes. She says we both can live our lives without interference from the other. It seems like the perfect plan.

Until it isn’t.

My Review

Seventh book in the Brooklyn Kings Series. I’ve not read any of the previous books, and I don’t think that’s a problem, but I was intrigued whilst reading this one, so at some point I’ll go visit the rest of the Kings series (Sadly not on KU🤔)

Five years on and Anya still suffers from her ordeal at the hands of a monster. Quiet and withdrawn, a shadow of her former self. But pushing her into marriage doesn’t seem to me to be a great idea, and Anya is of the same mind, so she needs a husband in name only!

Paddy is an Irish man through and through. Fighting and s€x is the only thing he thinks about. Not marriage, and certainly not tied down to one woman. So when Anya approaches him with a proposal, he’s the first to shoot it down…..

Together they come up with a plan, well Anya does. Marrying Paddy would solve all her problems, pointing that out to him though proves problematic! But they will live separate lives, so surely that’s got to be a win-win. Right?

Her family aren’t happy with her choice, and nor is Paddy’s. But it’s something they’ve agreed on, and for better or worse they intend to go ahead.

Paddy intends not to let marriage slow his appetite for the fairer sex, he’s still going to chase who he wants.

You have to feel sorry for Anya, after being tortured and abused, she only wants a quiet life

And Paddy, well I want to smack him around once or twice. The arrogance of the man was pretty hard to read at first. And don’t think this marriage will change him, he’s still an arms trader/dealer/buyer. His job is a morally grey patch.

So can they make this marriage of convenience work?

This is an enemies to lovers read. A dark tale that you have to read the TW (trigger warnings) before going in.

Luckily we don’t get too much of Anya’s abuse told to us.

And it’s fun to watch how Paddy swears the marriage won’t change anything…..

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
