Do you believe in soul mates? 

Rian O’Malley knew the minute he saw Liadh O’Neil that she was the missing piece of his puzzle. They would be together forever. The only problem, they were both five years old at the time. When Rian lost Liadh, he shut away a part of his heart and no woman ever managed to capture the piece of his soul that belonged to Liadh. 

Do you believe in true love?

Rian O’Malley is all grown up. Life is good as a sexy brooding multi millionaire businessman. Being CEO of the O’Malley Caribbean resorts affords Rian every luxury, but in love Rian is guarded, the guise of cheeky carefree playboy hides the depths of his fractured heart.

Can Rian break through the façade and find the real Liadh? Old friendships are rekindled and old adversaries resurface, soon Rian must fight for Liadh’s life as well as her heart.

The magic is still there, the chemistry too hot to deny. Can Rian break down Liadh’s barriers when his own walls seem so impenetrable?

 Nothing seemed to separate childhood friends Liadh O'Neil, and Rian O'Malley. Growing up together the pair quickly realize that they have reason to be involved in each other's lives. When a traumatic even rips them away from each other, it seems as if fate has a way of telling them that they aren't meant to be lifelong friends.

Liadh returns to the town she once grew up in, and the town that Rian is still living. There were certainly moments of anxiety where she knew that coming back to this place, the cottage that her mother once owned, would bring tons of memories that came rushing back to her. She wanted to become a recluse - stay in touch with herself, and not let anyone else in. When Rian learns that Liadh is back in town, he knows he has to break through the wall that has her hiding in fear from her past.

Years have passed for Rian. Women have waltzed in, and out of his life, and none of them have compared to his childhood friend, Liadh. He grows to accept the fact that unless she comes back, he will never be happy with another woman. When he finds out that she is living just down the road from his house, his hopes soar higher than they have ever been. Will this be their chance at eternal love? Will this be their chance to rekindle what they once had, and lost?

It is no shock that every second chance comes with regrets, fights, and what-ifs. What if things don't play out the way Liadh, and Rian want them to? Why does it seem that fate does not want Liadh, and Rian to have their happily ever after? Why was this such an emotional read?! There was just so much what-if that it was heartbreakingly devastating to watch Liadh, and Rian suffer as they tried to pull their relationship together.

Michelle really brings her characters to life with real, heartfelt, personal issues that most anyone can relate to. I enjoy having the chance to relate to characters in a book. It just seem easier to relate to the situations that these characters are brought into. I loved the relationship between Liadh, and Rian - there was something there the whole time from their childhood where they were ripped away from one another, to their adulthood where they are reunited. Them fighting for one another just added to what they ultimately wanted in life - to be happy with one another.

Michelle did not disappoint with Rian - The O'Malley's #3. She has done a wonderful job with this series, and bringing Irish proverbs into her story. I love that she adds the Irish proverbs to the beginning of each of her chapters. I feel that the Irish proverbs are like little pretenses to what the chapter has to hold for her readers. Michelle has worked wonders with this series, and I completely look forward to the rest of this series!

The curtains were pulled so tightly that not even a sliver of light entered the room. Only the soft glow from the fireplace illuminated a small area of the bed and Liadh stood naked and proud as she watched Rian slowly undress. As his cock sprang loose from his tight black cotton boxers she breathed in sharply. So magnificent a sight before her, she almost lost her composure. His skin had beads of sweat that shone like diamonds on his skin, and she could smell the muskiness of it as he took off each layer and dropped it beside him onto the wooden floorboards.

Rian walked towards her and kissed her full and hard on the mouth, he pulled her in close to his body. Liadh could feel every inch of him hard and wet. She was enveloped by the blackness of the room, the serenity of their secret place, intoxicated by the scent and shape of him, the feeling of his coolness against her warmth. His mouth, his lips, his tongue, all known to her and so precious. Liadh returned every movement, replicated every touch he lavished upon her. Abandoning any semblance of reason or fear she grinded against him as the tip of his cock banged over her pussy tantalising every piece of her.

He held her face tightly and deepened the kiss, his tongue probing into her mouth, his teeth nipping at her lips as she moaned loudly into his mouth.

“My mouth wants your cock,” she mumbled into his mouth. Rían stilted suddenly and she felt his breath coming in short bursts.

“Are you sure, I mean I don’t want you to feel you have to do…”

Liadh pressed her fingers to his lips “Shut up Rían, I want you in my mouth. Give me what I want.”

His mouth was dry so he just nodded at her. Whatever she wanted she would have. It had always been that way.

Rian lay back on the bed and threaded his hands behind his head. Liadh gripped the base of his cock in her hand and traced her tongue up the length of it, twirling it around the head, teasing him, owning him. Rian’s hands flew down to his sides and he gripped either side of the bed, his lower torso rising slightly off the bed to meet her tongue. She felt him tense and jump slightly with the intensity of feeling. His body writhed from the touch of her mouth wrapped around his cock, so warm, so soft. Her hand wandered up to his thighs and she spread them kneading the inside greedily between her fingers, as her mouth continued to suck on him in a steady rhythm, fast and then slow. Twisting her mouth left and right she teased him, tantalised him until he was moaning and begging her to stop.

“Liadh…Liadh you need to stop lovey, I’m gonna come Liadh..Oh Jesus!”

Liadh looked up at him wiping her mouth with the back of her hand.

“Then come Rí, come into my mouth. I want to taste you. I want all of it.” Rian bit his lower lip and bucked beneath her mouth as she brought him to the cusp of an orgasm. Smiling at him she bent her head one last time, gave one last suck as he exploded into her mouth holding her hair tightly between his fingers. He didn’t shout out, instead he shook and whispered her name quietly over and over again. Liadh loved it, the sense of control that washed though her. She had done that, she had given Rían pleasure, and she had made him weak and helpless in her arms. She laid her head on his thigh as he caught his breath and rubbed her hair gently. The taste of him, the smell of him captured in her mouth and on her tongue, she was even hotter for him.

Michelle McLoughney was raised and still lives in the south west of Ireland, where she runs a Montessori school. An award winning poet, she began writing her first adult romance over a year ago. Being a lover of all things romantic, Michelle just loves a happy ever after. She likes to write strong but loving male leads, and their feisty and funny love interests.
