    One thought on “Kiss Me, I'm Irish”

    1. Pssst, come here. Yeah, you, come here. Have I got a book for you. Do you like contemporary romances? How about time-travel stories? OK, what if I added paranormal, Regency, fairies, humor, starving artists, musician's life and just clean fun to the genres? KISS ME, I'M IRISH is book #1 in the 'Time for Love' series by a relatively unknown author. Bella Street has taken a hodge-podge of story themes and blended them together successfully. And what an enjoyment to read!It is a fanciful tale of wh [...]

    2. 2.5 stars. I had high hopes for this one because it started out great but I never ended up connecting with the characters.I have no idea why people are shelving this as YA. The characters are all over the age of 21, and happen to be touring musicians who are going from bar to bar performing. The only reason I could even think of why this might be mistakenly reshelved, is that the book reads fairly clean in content, yet this doesn't necessarily make a book YA. This just classifies a book as a cle [...]

    3. Do you believe in magic?Kiss Me, I’m Irish is about a young woman, Emily Musgrave, who finds herself headed down a road that she is determined not to go. No, literally. She’s on her way to a convent for kissing one too many Irish men, a race it seems she can’t resist. But when her carriage breaks down on that dark and gloomy night in 1813, Emily seized her opportunity to escape. Little does she know just how far from home and a bleak future in a convent she’ll find herself. Propelled int [...]

    4. Bella Street has done the near impossible of taking someone from a previous era and put them in the present day and made their voice and behaviour completely authentic without sounded cliched or forced in any way. I can only imagine the amount of research Bella had to undertake to write so knowledgeably about times gone by! This book is fast paced, clever and funny! I don't want it to come to an end!! I highly recommend it!

    5. Oh My Word! I was addicted to this novel from page one. I honestly don't think Bella could write something I wouldn't like, she's very talented. Her characters are always so real, the stories are well written allowing the reader to feel and experience everything the character goes through.~Tich~

    6. Emily stumbled into a stone ring in 1813 Cornwall England only to wake up on the sidewalk in 2011 of modern day Tennessee. She not only jumps almost 200 years into the future but across an ocean, and with no way home (not that she wants to return!). Life wasn't the easiest for Emily in her own time, with the loss of her parents she is sent to live with her Great Aunt - who is bound and determined to turn her into a respectable lady, even if it isn't what Emily wants. When the carriage taking her [...]

    7. I know my reviews leave somewhat to be desired, because sadly I suck at this. And I won't do it justice. But I must say. I loved this book. I thought the story was very original. I've never read another book quite like it. Time travel, Pixes or as Emily calls them Piskeys, Irishmen, and music all in one story. This book really exceeded my expectations. Emily Musgrave lives in the early 19th century where she has been caught kissing the Irish stable boy and the Irish footman. When her Aunt learns [...]

    8. This book really wasn't bad, I liked the characters well enough and there were plot twists to keep your attention. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I'm not a huge fan of time traveling in the plot, which clearly is my fault not the author's.I really enjoyed Emily and the way that she progressed and just conformed to what was thrown at her in the new world. And of course, Liam was brooding and how can you not love a musician? Tinker was everything I would expect with that name and [...]

    9. (Note: I liked the story, I just wish the author toned down on the magic. It was infused in the plot and in the romance and it got a bit much, y'know?)This story is a lot of fun and I really enjoyed the writing. I've read a few books of modern people going back into the past but never a historical character coming forward to the future. Emily's journey to the future is hilarious as she awkwardly navigates herself in the 21st century. She didn't know what a computer was, but it apparently was not [...]

    10. Kiss Me, I'm Irish is an interesting, entertaining and funny read. There is suspense and romance.Liam and Tinker are trying to get big with their music. Singing at bars and any other gigs and living from hotel to hotel. Their days are pretty much mundane until the one fateful night when Emily Musgrave appears claiming she is from England; but not from this time we are talking about 200 years ago.Convincing the sexy Liam seems to be a full time job, he isn't buying Emily's story. Once she shows h [...]

    11. Do you know that moment when you start reading a time travel novel and expect it to be great and your expectations plummet to the floor like crazy because the writing doesn't really live up to the idea? Well, that's what happened to me and this book.I picked it up hoping to find the next great time travel novel, but unfortunately, I was quite disappointed in the execution. The idea was great - bring a young woman from 1813 to the modern times and see what happens. How she deals with new stuff, h [...]

    12. This was a good book with a realistic basis for time travel. Emily is a good character, though a little redundant at times. Liam is a bit self-absorbed, but mostly a great person and character. Tinker is a fabulous side character. Though you may feel in the dark until some of the mysteries are revealed, it's still an enjoyable read as you discover the characters learning to adjust to new circumstances and dealing with new feelings for each other. Plausibly created and thought out, this book keep [...]

    13. First of all I didn't post my review sooner due to a family emergency.Anyways, I absolutly love the book. I don't regret reading it and I will be rereading it again. I was hooked by the end of the third page. I wanted to know what happened next. It was a page turner, I couldn't stop reading it. I didn't expect how things turned out expecially with Tinker. Who she really was amazed me and also with Liam. How his story came out to be. It was very well written.

    14. I was unimpressed with this book. The characters made little sense to me, and the story, even with it being a time travel novel, didn't seem plausible to me. I didn't like how Tinker acted for most of the story, then she was so instrumental to everything that had happened, when she had seemed like such a child prior to that. Just wasn't my cup of tea

    15. I thought I was getting a period romance and ended up with a time travel romance instead. Quite good fun.

    16. Very cute and romantic light paranormal story! The hero and heroine have a special relationship, and the sister Tinker is very fun too.

    17. Haha! This is a funny, heartwarming, clean though not squeaky, time travel romance. At first, I was a bit put off by the tone of the story but I eventually warmed up to it. The book was clean but the lack of squeaky is because of the occasional innuendos. Except for the innuendo, this might pass as YA fiction. The magic involved in their lives and in time travel did not deter me from enjoying the story although I am currently in a non-magic phase of my compulsive reading. I glanced ahead briefly [...]

    20. Original review here: offbeatvagabond/2014/01/kiss-me-im-yours-blog-tour-reviewmlKiss Me, I'm Irish is a fascinating tale that mixes the modern world with a little bit of paranormal thrown in.

    21. I absolutely loved Kiss Me, I'm Irish, It is so different from anything else I have read. It was such a fun, exciting read from start to finish.

    23. This was a very engaging novel right from page one. The story begins with Emily Musgrave on her way to an English convent, having been banished there by her great aunt, Lady Tremaine, for the inexcusable wickedness of kissing an Irish footman when Emily was to be betrothed to a man fifty years her senior. The carriage breaks down and Emily decides to run away. Reaching a forested area near her home, she inadvertently steps into a stone circle, and sees a blue light flying towards her, then hears [...]

    24. This was a sweet time travel romance that was between a guilt-ridden bitter man who has lost hope in his music career and a young woman from the past who is escaping a disappointing arranged marriage and punishment of being sent to a convent.Emily Musgrave is sent two hundred years into the future where she is fortunately found by Tinker and Liam Jackson. They think she is lying or crazy, but they bring her with them. Liam and Tinker play folk and country music at local bars, but are struggling [...]

    25. Bella Street 19s tagline is 1CRomance with a touch of weird 1D. I now fully understand why as it is so true. This was my first book by her, and it was such a fun story! Emily is from a time where kissing alone is gasp worthy and to show skin was scandalous, so to wind up in the present day where people where tube tops as skirts for crying out loud is an unimaginable culture shock for poor Emily. Liam has enough problems with a pesky little sister to keep in line and a flagging music career to ge [...]

    26. Through one of my friends I I found and joined a group titled The Knights of the Round Table. This book has been created to give people books to read in exchange for honest reviews. If you want to know more information check it out.There were two books up for grabs for review and the minute I researched this one I knew that I wanted to review it. A strong-willed Cornish girl, Emily, is propelled into the future when she accidentally stumbles upon a time portal. She is glad to have escaped being [...]

    27. The first word I thought of when I finished reading KISS ME I’M IRISH was “delightful,” and that’s not at all what I expected! I rarely read stories that include fairies or time travel, but this book had both. By the end of the story, I wondered why I haven’t read more paranormal romance.In 1830 Emily Musgrave, an English maiden, is on her way to a convent, banished because of her unseemly behavior. It seems she has been caught kissing Irishmen—a stable hand and a footman—making he [...]

    28. Read and comment here: disincentive-reviews. Super short blurb: Emily is wayward. She has a weakness for Irishman, she kissed a few and now she heads to a convent. Some problems made her head to 12th century actually… I’m not a huge fan of romances but oh, this one stole my heart. Time travel is a really well-worn topic, so I didn’t expect anything breathtaking. It was still a big pleasure to read Kiss me, I’m Irish. Why?This book is full of amazing humor. From misunderstandings because [...]

    29. KISS ME, I'M IRISH by Bella Street is a quirky and delightfully sweet love story. Her characters are as captivating as they are sassy. The story is fresh and well told with just the right magical mix of humor, mystery, romance, and even a touch of danger. Liam Jackson is a brooding, edgy, sexy southern musician who draws women to him wherever they play with his dark hair and beautiful blue eyes. He travels from venue to venue with Tinker, who plays the fiddle while he plays the dobro, with plans [...]

    30. Bella Street’s tagline is “Romance with a touch of weird”. I now fully understand why as it is so true. This was my first book by her, and it was such a fun story! Emily is from a time where kissing alone is gasp worthy and to show skin was scandalous, so to wind up in the present day where people where tube tops as skirts for crying out loud is an unimaginable culture shock for poor Emily.
