Story Overview:
Wild Irish, Book One Monday’s child is fair of face… After the death of her mother years prior, Keira Collins became a surrogate parent to her six younger brothers and sisters, her own dreams put on hold. At twenty-seven, she’s finally pursuing a college degree. Between classes, working at the family pub and still tending to siblings, she’s no time for romance. So why is she spending all her rare free time fantasizing about hot Professor Wallace bending her over his desk? Will Wallace recognizes Keira’s unfulfilled desires, her habit of hiding her beauty, her obsessive need to command every aspect of her life. But Will has needs of his own—and they run far darker than Keira’s. As he initiates her into his lifestyle, offering sweet punishments and sweeter rewards, Will’s sexual authority slowly strips away some of her precious control. The one thing Keira’s not ready to relinquish…

My Review:
This was a wonderful little erotic read that is #1 in the Wild Irish series....a series about 7 siblings.  This book is about Keira, the oldest of the siblings, who is the one that took responsibility for al her siblings when her mother died. She is finally doing something for herself and has gone back to college where her professor, Prof. Wallace, is making her life difficult with his impossible demands in class and erotic demands in her dreams.

Unknown to Keira, Will is having equally hot fantasies about her and their tutoring sessions have tested his restraint. When the semester finally ends, he finds that he cannot resist the pull to her and goes to see her at the family pub.

I think that this is one of the most amazingly erotic books that I have ever read- it is HOT!!! Will is a Dom. Keira has control over every other part of her life and is completely entranced with letting Will have complete control over this part of her life. The BDSM world is definitely the one for her. She is the perfect sub and it makes for a highly erotic book. Fantastic sexual tension here!

The family dynamic is interesting especially since Keira is the oldest and basically has been "mom" for a lot of years. I love how over-protective the brothers are when a man comes around the girls. But with all that comes a LOT of weight on Keira's shoulders. It was interesting to read how Mari worked that part of the story line and how Will suddenly became allies with Keira's brother. The whole story simply works brilliantly and I cannot wait to read the rest of this series.

Is it back-to-school time yet?? ;o)
