Story Overview:
Wild Irish, Book Five

Friday's child is loving and giving . . . 

Ewan Collins has had the hots for Natalie for years but she continually rebuffs him, supposedly because of their age difference. When Natalie comes to stay with the Collins family for a week, Ewan decides it's time to make his move in a serious way.

Natalie's been in a funk since celebrating another birthday alone. When Ewan proposes to help her "get a life"-seven lessons in seven days-she figures, what the hell does she have to lose? Ewan's plans include tequila shots, fishing, karaoke . . . and other, more erotic hands-on demonstrations.

But Nat's loneliness isn't Ewan's only obstacle. Tragedy in her past continually takes Natalie to a dark place her mind can't easily overcome. With support, tenderness and love, Ewan plans to win over Natalie one lesson at a time.

Starting with lessons of the heart.

My Review:
Talk about a couple who are a fabulous match...Ewan & Natalie are perfect for each other. She's moody and bitchy and really doesn't like people all that much, but he is perfect for her because he is the complete opposite and helps to temper her bad humor. Ewan is such an honestly nice, friendly, happy guy... it's hard for Natalie to stay in a bad mood when she is around him. Add to that, he is really intuitive to Natalie's moods and just knows when she needs a distraction. It makes for a really sweet story.

Natalie has been in a funk lately. She's a professional photographer and has recently come to the realization that she photographs other's awesome events in their lives, but that her own life is severely lacking in photo-worthy events. She tells Ewan this and he comes up with a 7-day plan for Natalie to find life in her world. The lessons range from fishing to partying to waiting tables, but what they do is take Natalie's focus off of herself so that she can see the amazing world that is happening around her and to become a part of that world. 

I really had fun reading about her life lessons and loved that Ewan took photos of them all so that she had it all documented. When the realization comes to her of the scope of what it is that he's done and accomplished...*sigh*'s so gorgeous!

Only 2 more books to go in this series....I am going to be sad when it's over.
