Samantha is a renowned American actress who is in Ireland to co produce a movie. She finds out that her long term boyfriend is a cheat, on Valentine night. Not the best time to face this type of situation, therefore she decides to drown her sorrows in this pub where she is a regular and she gets on well with the bartender. Her life hasn't always been easy and she keeps that part buried deep down. Her two best friends are the only ones aware of her past. She is seen as this beautiful and confident person but no one really knows the "real" Samantha.
Brennan is the pub owner. He too has been through a fair amount of hardship in his personal and business life. There is only one person who really matters to him and as far as dating is concerned, he has no intention of making his life complicated. When he sees Samantha having one too many, he decides to throw her out. It's a dark and rainy night. She has no transport and has to walk a fair way to get home. Brennan's first impression of her is that she is a rich spoilt brat. A princess!!
When Brennan realises how far Samantha has to walk to get home, he goes after her and gives her a lift. He is not very nice about it, in fact some of his comments are brutal! When he discovers that she has a stalker, he helps her out whilst at the same time hoping that he won't have to see her again. It turns out that circumstances don't allow them to stay away from each other for long. Their banters are somewhat interesting. Comical one minute, offensive the next and just about friendly at times. They have some tender and passionate moments too.Read more ›

Holly's writing has grown so much through these books, and I am so glad to have watched the journey. This book belongs to Sam, the last third of the boys-names-on-girls-club that started with George in BLINDSIDED. While each book is a standalone, my only note on the front of this particular title is that there isn't mention of Sam's profession at the beginning of the book -- if you've read the others, you know she's an actress, but if you haven't, all you know is she's "the great Samantha Lane" that has given her presence to Murphy's Pub.
While Sam may be an actress, she's currently in Ireland to co-produce a film and while there, she makes the not-so-pleasant acquaintance of Brennan -- who has just as an American accent as she does yet he lives there.
Sam and Brennan's story was definitely a comedy of errors. From the get-go, they simply rubbed against one another the wrong way. Sam was spunky and was not afraid to voice her opinion, and Brennan didn't care for the actress and what she represented. I loved watching Brennan's opinion of her thaw, though, especially when he was honest with himself as to why he acted like such a jerk around her. His sweet moments were definitely great and when these two finally stopped fighting, they were so dang cute.
On one hand, their reactions, fights, and words could be viewed as hot-and-cold, but I got a very passionate feel about both these characters. Both had a world of hurt behind the fronts they put forth, and shielded their hearts with snarky attitudes. The only other part that I had a slight issue with was the plotline of the stalker -- it was there but the line didn't quite elaborate as fully as I'd like to see, and quite frankly, I forgot all about it until I was near the end (and when I questioned it, well, the answer happened shortly after). I appreciated the effort in the slightly suspenseful line, but Holly's strength is more in the contemporary sector than the added suspense. Oh. And then there was the end -- one of the last scenes in this book overlaps with IGNITE and while it lined up fairly well, I did find a couple of inconsistencies. But if you haven't read the other books, or if you don't have a graphic memory, you may not catch it.
So while there were a couple of things that should hold me back from rating this a 5-star, I found it to be better than the previous two books -- I liked the writing, I felt the characters were more developed, and I enjoyed the picture Holly painted of Ireland. I'm sad to see these friends leave, but am super excited to see that the next book to release will be Sam's "new best friend", aka Brennan's Irish cousin, Ryan. I liked that man and can't wait to see him fall.

Holly Mortimer is a new to me author and I can't wait to read more from her and this series.
As a world famous actress, living in Ireland for a year while producing a movie, Samantha has not had it easy. Her Cheating boyfriend/rock star and dealing with a stalker is causing her stress. To top it off... she goes to a pub nearby to get drunk and forget her stress... The owner kicks her to the curb. Now, since she left her car at work, she has to walk home in the rain and dark... alone.
The pub owner, Brennan, takes off and picks Samantha up.
Brennan has a tough life too. He came from the states to bury his mother and found out he was the owner of the local family pub in Ireland. After leaving the pub to his Uncle and returning back to the states, he finds out a few years later that he stole the profits and the pub is about to close, but that's not all... He had a one night stand with a local women a few years prior which resulted in a child he had no clue about. His daughters mother is a drug user and left their child in the care of her Grandma. The Grandmother sends for Brennan to come back to Ireland to raise his daughter and save the family pub.
Brennan thinks Samantha is way out of his league and besides, he isn't interested in getting involved with someone.
Will these two fall in love and realize they need each other in their lives?
I loved that we got both Samantha and Brennan's POV, it made the story that much better. I couldn't put it down.

Samantha is a world famous actress who is in Ireland for a year producing a movie. Between the stress of the job, finding out that her rock star boyfriend is a cheating rat fink and having to deal with a stalker, she does what most do…heads to the nearest pub and gets her drink on. The icing on the worst day ever, the pub owner comes in and kicks her out. She now has to walk home in the dark, while the rain is pouring down because she left her vehicle at the office.
Brennan, the pub owner isn’t all bad. Almost as soon as Samantha takes off, he heads out in his vehicle and picks her up. Brennan hasn’t had it easy either. He had come to Ireland to bury his mother and found out that he was now the owner of the local pub. Leaving his uncle in charge, he headed back home to America… Well fast forward a couple of years and he finds out that his uncle has stolen most of the pubs profits and left the pub about to close. AND his one night stand with a local woman resulted in a daughter that he didn’t know about. Finding out that the mother of his child is a drug user and has left his daughter in the care of the baby’s Grandma sends Brennan back to Ireland to raise his daughter and save the family pub. He doesn’t want to get involved with anyone and definitely someone he thinks is out of his league.
This story is told in dual POV and works well. The characters are real and engaging. The storyline keeps you coming back for more. After all the books I have been reading lately, it was nice to see a sweet HEA!!
Holly Mortimer is most definitely an awesome writer and I can’t wait to read her other stories!!

They each had secrets. Brennan's wasn't so horrible and I understood why he hadn't come out and said to Samantha, "I'm a father." Who does that? It's like a first date no-no. The same goes for Samantha. Her secrets were, in her mind only, horrible and made her unworthy of a man's affection, especially a man who had a child. But the sins of her past do not define her to Brennan. The challenge was making her understand that.
The added twist of a stalker was...okay? I don't know. A part of me would have liked for that part to be more pronounced than it was, but the other part is really glad it wasn't. Samantha's past was why the stalker was after her to begin with. The weight of that alone was already too much. Making the plot more sinister and darker would have detracted from what she had to face alone and then with Brennan.
I liked this story. The swearing made me chuckle. The banter made me grin. While I enjoyed both, I also enjoyed the serious moments they had as individuals and as a couple. They began as strangers and ended as lovers, growing and moving on as they did. They learned to trust each other with their hearts and secrets; to see the past as the past and to let it go; to embrace the possibility of a future filled with everything they never had because they each other.

Samantha Lane is having a really bad day. Not only does she have a stalker threatening to make all her carefully kept secrets public, but she’s just found out her ex is a cheating scumbag. All she wants is to drown her sorrows in a bottle of Jameson and feel sorry for herself. The last thing she needs is a stubborn and angry pub owner being rude.
But sometimes the last thing we need, is the only thing we need. These two lost souls are trying everything to ignore their mutual attraction but all it really does is cause one heated argument after another and some hot as sin kisses when tempers flare. Both are stubborn and unwilling to admit their attraction and it makes for some very entertaining interactions and back and forth banter.
Worlds Apart was a very entertaining read and the tension between the two was scorching. However, around the halfway mark when the two came to a sort of agreement, I started to miss their back and forth banter. However, there are a few dramatic twists and revelations in the plot that kept the book entertaining and fast paced. As a whole this was an enjoyable read with some dramatics, a whole lot of sparks flying around and some funny interactions.
