As Ali continues her tour of Ireland with Aidan as her tour guide, they begin a passionate romance. To begin with, the sex scences are very well written but I felt that there were a few too many set too close together. Of course, the fantasy can not last forever and Ali is left with her heart broken. Of course, neither knows much about the other and their paths will cross again but when?
It transpires that Ali or rather 'Alex' is a genuis with computers and they happen to come across each other again at a conference. This part of the book is very well written, with various characters playing a part in the rekindling of this romance, especially helped with the threat to her life. From her sad upbringing it was nice to read about someone so happy with their life and full of joy. The book of course has a very happy ending but getting there was a pleasure to read, although I can't help feeling she gave into Aidan a little too easily for my liking!! There was a little too much sex at the beginning for me but I was glad this peppered out and just slightly disappointed with the few typos that were in there. Overall, a good read.
The first thing to say is that I wanted to shout at the characters for their risky behaviour. Even if you are instantly attracted to someone and even if you are in Ireland it is not a good idea to go away with someone you have just met and don't know, they are both intelligent people and you would have thought that they would know that this is not sensible.
Anyway, if you accept that this is how they behave then their time together is interesting enough although Aiden's reasons for finishing it and his way of doing so are pretty cruel and Ali forgives a lot easier than I think that most of us might in the same situation. The second half of the book combines their romance with a terrorist plot (which is very light on details and motivation). I am not quite sure why this was added unless it was to liven up a book which was becoming a little dull and predictable - I am not quite sure that it fits with the start of the story.
A bit of a mixed book for me - unrealistic, and the different elements of the plot didn't really meld together. The ending was achingly sentimental but most of the book was well enough written (by an American so all the words used are the American ones rather than the Irish). Not challenging at all.

6:00am this morning. The heroine of the story Alexandra (Ali) Dearborn was portrayed as a all american girl next door, who had a few good things going for her, which she so deserved after her childhood full of foster homes due to the loss of her mother at the age of 5 years, and never knowing who her father was. She was a genius. also coupled with something similar to a photograpic memory, graduated from MIT and hired by a the top computer software company..
She quits her job to begin a new career in Ireland, (her mothers birthplace) meets a handsome man seems to fall in love at first sight, has an steamy affair for a week when he leaves her. However, heartbroken she picks herself up and pursues her hoped for new career. She becomes unwittingly involved in a terror plot, which nearly costs her her life. Her former lover comes back to protect her.
The best part of this book that created such a compulsion for me to write this review was the triple whammy at her birthday celebration at a local pub. It starts out with tears filling your eyes, then they start streaming down your cheeks, then you just sob. It was so beautiful !!!!! The story does continue on to a great ending.
I can not remember ever being so affected by a book before.
What a Fantastic story, masterfully written details so crisp and clear you can see everything even smell the Irish surroundings. This has Romance, Suspense,Mystery. All in one masterful written book.
The first in four books, I Highly Recommend this book!
I love Ali and Aiden. No two people deserve happiness more. I'm glad they found their way to each other.
