Best of Luck by Corinne Scott - [Book Review]

Best of Luck (O’briens)
by Corinne Scott

One of the jewels of Best of Luck for me was the development of the relationship between Siobhan and Crew. This is no run-of-the-mill boy-meets-girl story.

What a great romance novel! . . . The Irish details are enchanting but when added to the romance it really added a nice twist.

Best of Luck (O’briens) 
Romantic Suspense
2nd in Series
Camel Press (February 14, 2018)
Paperback: 248 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1603813839

Crew Costa isn’t Irish, but for a kid from the school of hard knocks, he’s had the luck of the Irish with his chain of faux-Irish pubs, O’Shaughnessy’s Shenanigans. Number 13 is set to open in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The Bronx is already the site of several authentic Irish pubs, including The Lion O’Brien. Started by Liam O’Brien, the pub is now managed by his youngest daughter Siobhan, but only after her four older brothers refused the job. Now Siobhan has to prove she is worthy.
Siobhan falls for Crew, literally, after they collide while he is moving into her apartment building. Their attraction is immediate and powerful, but they are rivals. Siobhan is counting on the Lion winning the St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl, which Crew has entered as well. The lead-up to the event involves “pranking” your competition, and the older pubs band together against the gaudy newcomer, with its McNaughty the Leprechaun and other cultural stereotypes. For Crew and Siobhan, the pranking quickly gets personal and expensive.
Siobhan and Crew can’t resist the electricity between them, but can Siobhan trust this streetwise charmer? Can Crew trust this daddy’s girl whose overriding passion is her pub? And will the rage brewing among the other pub owners put their lives in danger?
My Review:

This is a romantic story of a handsome man and a beautiful no-nonsense woman. Siobhan is recently promoted as the Irish pub manager that their family owns. She wants to prove herself as a good manager and thinks entering the pub crawl is her best opportunity. She hates the new Pub opening in town O’Shaughnessy’s Shenanigans, which is not a genuine Irish pub as per her opinion. But, at last, she falls in love with Crew, the owner of the new pub. 

Due to the serious pranking between the pubs in the competition, things go out of control and these become a hurdle in the love life of Siobhan and Crew.

I loved the characters of -

Siobhan - A brave, intelligent and beautiful woman
Crew - handsome, die-hard romantic and smart
Eion - Protective of her sister and a logical investigator
Viv - Understanding wife of Eion and a good friend of Siobhan
Tansy - bubbly bartender and an ambitious lawyer

I liked the narration which is casual and friendly. The plot is good even though not very thrilling or mysterious to be considered a  Romantic Suspense. The chemistry between Siobhan and Crew is good. The family of Liam and their relationship is great. 

I found it a quick romance read. I would recommend this to the readers who love Romantic stories with very good characterization. 

My Rating: 4/5
