Best of Luck (O’briens)
by Corinne Scott
One of the jewels of Best of Luck for me was the development of the relationship between Siobhan and Crew. This is no run-of-the-mill boy-meets-girl story.
What a great romance novel! . . . The Irish details are enchanting but when added to the romance it really added a nice twist.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
This is a romantic story of a handsome man and a beautiful no-nonsense woman. . . I liked the narration which is casual and friendly.
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!
The love story between Siobhan and Crew has everything. . . It’s a joy to watch these two grow from enemies to friends to soulmates.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
It was fun to read about the Irish pub scene in Brooklyn.
The reader just might end up on the edge of the seat waiting to see how this turns out!
~My Reading Journeys
I am impressed with the author’s talent to mix her steamy romances with a nice suspenseful mystery and keeping a comfortable balance between the two. She gives her readers a very entertaining story.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Romantic tension and competitive suspense fill each page as Siobhan struggles with her ethical dilemma and her personal emotions. The pace is quick and the writing flows easily.

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?
