Adult language, sexual content. A man. A ring. A box. It’s not what you think. Natalie Journeycake can barely pay her rent. Hell, sometimes she flat out can’t! But when her landlady sells the only thing Talie had to barter with- her dead brother Sam’s Celtic ring- she has to try to get it back. When she loses the auction where it is being sold, she tries to plead with the winner, only to find out it is the same hot Irishman she met earlier in the week. Declan Quinn’s new place in her life is a little too convenient and she suspects that they did not meet by accident. Declan may have the ring, but as they get closer, Talie is in danger of losing her heart.

When she learns that the junky piece of jewelry is the key to opening Sam’s safety deposit box in London, she’s as intrigued as Declan is determined. Follow them as they jump through hoops and dodge daggers in order to find out what Sam left behind- for the both of them.

 paragraph divider 18 ***Amber, #NerdGirlAmbz’s Review***

This story was a quick read, but an enjoyable one. Natalia or Talie as she is called is one relatable character. She is in school and working two jobs to survive. She just lost her brother Sam to a drug overdose. Or did she? Between tuition and rent she is tapped for cash. While working one night at the diner she comes across a mysterious stranger. A gorgeous Irishman who tingles her very core. She then decides to go on a date with this mysterious stranger an has the time of her life. What comes after however, she is not prepared for!

 Declan a mysterious, smart, gorgeous Irishman who seems to be intrigued by Talie. He is drawn to her in so many ways. He seems to good to be true and you know what they say about that. He seems to pop up everywhere Talie is. Coincidence or no?

 When these two get together they embark on a journey neither knew about or were expecting. All because of a Celtic ring Sam (Talies brother) gave her. This story has romance and action. Very compelling to read.

 I do however have some issues with the story. I wish the big action scene was drug out just a little more. I also wish the story was longer because the ending will leave you with an OMG type moment. ;) I would recommend you read this story!
