Irish (Reed Security, #5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Irish by Giulia Lagomarsino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Derek “Irish” Cortell. Badass close protection agent. Sexy, panty-melting smile. Superhero?


There’s something strange about the men at Reed Security. When socially awkward Claire Grant works up the nerve to talk to Derek in the grocery store, it opens up a whole new world for her in which her fantasies are becoming reality. Yes, she’s a librarian. Yes, it’s quite possible she’s immersed herself in too many books, but her eyes couldn’t possibly be deceiving her. Could they?


Though Claire and Derek seem to have your typical romance, there is nothing typical about Derek or the people he works with, and soon Claire will find out just how super Derek really is.


Hot Irish!

The heroine: Claire Grant – A librarian by trade, she also works her Dad’s small farm on the side (with her sister) since her father has Alzheimer’s. She is a small woman and has no experience talking to men. She gets nervous and starts pouring out everything on her mind without any filter. When she meets Derek at the grocery store, her word vomit embarrasses her enough to turn around and exit the store.

The Hero(es): Derek Cornell (a.k.a. Irish) – He is the head of a team at Reed Security. His team consists of Hunter and Lola. He feels responsible for his team and thinks he missed something in the past when his gut was telling him things weren’t as they seemed and he wasn’t able to prevent what happened.

The Story: Derek and Claire met at the grocery store and he was instantly attracted to her and she to him. He saves her from being hit by a car and she starts to think about men with superpowers. Obviously she reads too many romance novels.

“Were all the men at Reed Security blessed with superpowers? Were they some kind of superhero coalition? First, Knight was shot and the bullet bounced right off him. Then Derek ran into a burning truck and came out completely unscathed. It just didn’t make any sense. Had I walked into some alternate universe?”

This was definitely the funniest book in the series so far. I absolutely loved Claire and all her quirkiness! Derek was also priceless in his reactions to her. He thinks she is gorgeous and adorable and sexy all put together in one hot little package. And Claire thinks Derek is Superman (sometimes literally) which makes for some fun inner dialogue. She has the wildest imagination that leads to some awesome scenes!
