Irish Kiss by Sienna Blake
A Second Chance, Age Taboo Romance
SB Publishing, February 2, 2018
I wanted him since the day I met him. Long haired, tattooed and tall as an Irish giant. He was more than just handsome, he was drop dead gorgeous. And the only one who ever truly cared. It didn’t matter to him that my father was a criminal and my mother a whore. He saw me, understood me. I could be anything I wanted, he said. Except his. Because I was too young and he was my Juvenile Liaison Officer.
It’s been years since I last saw her. No longer a girl, she has a body of a woman. When our eyes met again, I saw the only one who ever broke through my asshole mask. She never judged me. She saw me, accepted me. She could be anything she wanted. Except mine. Cause she’s only seventeen and I’m trying my hardest not to fall for her. If I give in, she will ruin me.
*This is a slow-burn, angsty love story spanning across a seven-year time period with sexual situations and drug-use involving characters under the age of eighteen. Irish Kiss is a complete standalone novel with a Happily Ever After, but damn, it is going to hurt along the way.*

Sienna Blake at her very best! She gives you a heart ripping, grief-ridden, forbidden love story. Set in Ireland and told in alternating POVs. The story of Saoirse and Diarmuid is complicated, messy and so full of pure love.
“So, you and me…” I said, “we’re soul family?” He smiled. “Yeah. We are.”
Saoirse Bryne, is thirteen when we meet her, naïve yet mature, brilliant, vulnerable, and tough. Trapped in a dump of a home with a drug-addicted, incompetent, and uncaring whore of a mother and a notorious drug pusher of a father. She’s suffering for love & attention as well as basic needs like food and clothes.
“She might have looked like a tiny doll but her soul was old, already hardened and calloused. At thirteen this girl already knew how unfair and cruel life could be.”
Diarmuid Brennan is a 24-year-old Juvenile Liaison Officer for troubled youths. Saoirse is assigned to him and he takes her under his wing, guiding her, giving her safety, and hope. He loses his heart and soul to her as she does to him. Dairmuid is caught between his heart and mind. His heart wants and needs her, but he knows it’s wrong with his job position and age.
“He was the first person who ever treated me like an adult. Like my thoughts and words mattered. Like I mattered.”
“He had been my world. My hope. My guiding light. He had been safety. Security. Unconditional love. Unconditional…until it wasn’t. Until he left, taking it all away.”
A push-pull relationship that embroils sacrificing your own wants and needs to save the one you love. The powerful, everlasting love story of Saoirse and Diarmuid grabbed me my page one and captivated me until the very last page. It’s all-consuming, deep, seductive, and so emotional. Fantastic read!
