Tell Me About It
Kat MacGregor has forty-eight hours to make good on the debt her ex-boyfriend owes a crime boss. Unfortunately, the measly tips she makes waitressing are barely enough for her to live on, much less cover the twenty-thousand needed to keep her breathing. With time running out, Kat 's forced to accept help from the only man who's ever made her feel fire rather than fear.

When he learns a friend's sister is in trouble, former Boston MMA fighter Aiden "Irish" O'Brien heads to Louisiana to offer himself up as collateral to keep her safe. But to satisfy the debt, he has to do the one thing he swore hed never do again: fight. With more than just money on the line, will Irish have what it takes to not only reclaim the man he once was, but become the man he needs to be for the woman he can't live without?
My Thoughts
I had not heard of this author or this book before until I received an email off the publisher. After reading the synopsis I had to find out more so I quickly accepted the book. It wasn't till I added Fighting For Irish to my review list on Goodreads that I realised it was part of a series, so I began reading with some trepidation, hoping that I could read this as a stand alone. Thankfully Fighting For Irish could be read perfectly well as a stand alone, and anything that has happened in the past was explained thoroughly when it was needed.

'Sydney' works at bar and Aiden 'Irish' is there to keep an eye on her, but it's not until we are a few chapters in that we find out the full reason for his presence there, and also what Sydney, who real name is Kat, is running from. The beginning of Fighting For Irish started off at a medium pace and I initially found it hard to keep myself interested in what was going on, bus as the secrets are revealed and Aiden has his plans made, the pace did begin to pick up.

Kat sees herself as weak, but surviving what she has gone through, and even what she is doing to survive now shows how strong she really is. The past few years have not been good for her at all, and to see her still standing and not letting anything drag her down shows courage and determination.
Aiden is a knight in armour and I love how he helps Kat through so much, he basically puts his life on hold and goes in with everything he has to look after her. I do think he could have told her his reasons for being there sooner than she found out, but I do like how it was worked through.

Fighting For Irish was different to what I usually read, and after the initial start I did find myself enjoying the story and seeing how two people can work together, and how the determination to persevere can keep you going.

About Gina
Gina is a shameless romance addict with no intentions of ever kicking the habit.

Growing up she dreamed of helping people escape reality with her acting abilities…until college when she realized she had none to speak of. Another ten years passed before she discovered a different means to accomplishing the same dream: writing stories of love and passion for addicts just like her.

Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, landed on the USA Today and NY Times Bestseller lists in less than a month. Now she splits her time between writing more books and acting as Boss of the world’s first organized romance mafia, the Maxwell Mob.

Thanks to the support she receives from her amazing family, Gina is finally able to live her dream of bringing a little romantic fantasy to the world, one steamy novel at a time.
