Review& Tour: His Wicked Celtic Kiss by Karyn Gerrard

His Wicked Celtic Kiss
by Karyn Gerrard
Tour Organizer: NK Author Services

It took just one teasing wink and a sexy Irish lilt from bad boy Lorcan Byrne to turn Julie Denison’s world upside down. The problem is, he’s only in town for six months, and happily ever after isn’t in this world traveler’s vocabulary.
Julie’s worked hard to get her life in a good place—dropping substantial weight and getting a great job at her friend’s bakery. But this handsome charmer is just as tempting as any of the decadent pastries she sells, and she can’t resist his advances for long. Julie fully expects Lorcan to break her heart—but she’s planning to enjoy every second she can of their explosive chemistry.
After years of danger as a soldier and a spy, Lorcan fled to tiny Rockland, Maryland for some boring downtime. He didn’t count on meeting someone who could ignite his libido and soothe his damaged heart, and their passion soon leads to deeper feelings. But can Julie convince Lorcan he has more to offer her than just his wicked Celtic kiss?

My Review:
I didn't know going into this one that this was book 2 in a series. But this can be read as a stand-alone with no problems. It refers back to some stuff in book 1 but not enough that I felt I was missing the story. That being said I totally plan on going back and reading it. I would love to get the beginning of Lorcan and Julie's story.
This was a very captivating and heartbreaking at times story. I was enthralled in it and read it in one sitting.
Julie is very relatable. She has a lot of insecurities but shes trying to fight past them. I love her humor too. 
Lorcan is just devastating. I was intrigued by him from the start and with every piece of his past that was revealed I just fell for him more. He's an extremely sweet guy. He was very closed off but you can't help but be drawn to him. At times he could be overly cocky and he definitely has a lot of demons from his past. But he has all these layers to break through to get to the real him.
I do hope to read more from this author in the future. I really felt for her characters and was drawn in to the story. I didn't want it to end.
