    2. 3.5 starsI did enjoy this one once I got over one or two “Irish”tings that annoyed me!!Short and sweet, it portrayed Ireland well – although a lot of those country pubs in the back arse of nowhere have closed down in recent years due to the strict “drink/driving” laws that were brought in and also the “anti-smoking” laws.“I love your voice,” she murmured. “You want to hear me?” Even that question was doing the job, like liquor snaking through her. “Yeah.” “Sweet or di [...]

    3. 3.5 stars!A short, sweet and sexy novella. Cara McKenna knows how to turn up the heat. This is a little less risque than some of her other reads, but just as steamy!1o days. That’s how long Jamie is on her Ireland vacation for. She meets local bartender, Connor on day 1. 10 days is enough for a fantastic fling. It might even be long enough to start falling.Jamie and Connor have strong chemistry. They put it all out there. Their feelings, wants, desires. Knowing they only have these precious 10 [...]

    4. Her Best Laid Plans was a satisfying romance and one HOT novella, but I didn’t expect any less from Cara McKenna. Jaime’s life plan derailed after her long-time boyfriend broke up with her. She was to support him through med school and then he was to return the favor when he finished and she went for her degree in architecture. Now that Jaime’s put her life on hold and delayed college, she’s two years behind with nothing to show for it. Loser ex!! With the summer off and no plans until s [...]

    5. "Her Best Laid Plans" was a sweet, flirty novella about a whirlwind romance between an Irish bartender and an American on holiday after a breakup. Honestly, this wasn't what I was expecting from this author, who is usually much edgier with her stories. In fact, one might call this a wee bit pedestrian. However, once I got over the fact that this was going to be simply a charming contemporary romance, I enjoyed the story.This book was pure romantic escapism. It was fun without being groundbreakin [...]

    7. This book is like a sweet, romantic new adult, just with more explicit sex scenes. Wish it was longer, though.

    8. 3.5--Sweet and Sexy--Stars!!This was a fun readd for being a novella I thought it was pretty good. Obviously there isn't a lot of story and character development but it was still entertaining. A great in-between book.Bonus wasJamie is in Ireland vacationing. She's just moved back to Boston after being dumped by her boyfriend. The boyfriend that she moved to California with so that he could follow his dreams.Her first day there, Jamie ends up in a pub and meets Connor. Connor's dad owns the bar a [...]

    9. 2 STARSHalf-hearted and boring. I imagine this was written while the author was writing another book, baking ten pies and doing her taxes. I have such faith in McKenna's knack for writing that I believe she can do all that and still come up with a coherent, albeit lazily imagined, snoozefest of a romance where nearly everybody's a bartender because, duh Ireland.After sacrificing her college plans for her boyfriend's medical school education, Jamie got dumped. No, the exact details on that deal w [...]

    10. 3.5- SEXY FLING - STARS!Anyways, Her Best Laid Plans reminded me a ton of Frenched. I mean they are in Ireland in this one and she's not on her honeymoon but still.Anyways that's not a bad thing just similar.Jamie has wasted two years of her life moving to be with her boyfriend to California only to be dumped. She takes a trip to Ireland. On her first day there she goes to the bar. She meets a cute bartender named Connor.And they have some chemistry.She decides what better way to enjoy Ireland t [...]

Well, except of a pub.She ends up at this pub her first night because sometimes a girl reallyneeds a beer.And she is also looking for a possible vacation fling.That's when sexy bart [...]

    12. 3.5 stars I discovered Cara McKenna back in January, when I was holed away in my house for several weeks. I'm glad I was sick and didn't have any other commitments, because that allowed me to speed read the surprisingly emotional, dark Curio--and then I proceeded to devour pretty much everything this author had written in just a few weeks! That's how good she is. The stories are unusual, the connection is intense, and the sex pushes a lot of boundaries. Her Best Laid Plans is a short, flirtatiou [...]

    13. Initial reaction: Now this is the kind of romance I like to read - cute, flirty, funny and hot. Cara McKenna's an author I will definitely pick up more in the future.Full review:Now this is the first time I've fully swooned over a romantic hero in a while, and I promise it's not just the fact that he's Irish (at might be part of the reason). He's incredibly funny and easy to like, and I liked his chemistry with the heroine in this story as well. "Her Best Laid Plans" is the second story I've rea [...]

    14. SOOOOOO GOODSweet, hot, fun, interesting with loveable characters.One of my fave short stories this year.

    15. 3.5 Hot Irish starsJaime was coming out of a long term relationship with a guy who didn't put her first. She moved to support him while he went to med school, putting her education on hold. After 4 years, he just dumps her. She heads back to Boston to regain her life. Go back to school. But before school starts she and her friend Kate have plans for a 10 day trip to Ireland. Only Kate had to back out for an internship so Jaime goes on her own. Walking into an Irish pub her first night she meets [...]

    16. 3 Hot Irishman Stars Irishmen are indeed 'dangerous'.And here's My Connor Kelleher This is so short. But it takes more than a week for me to finish it.Real life being so shitty recently I loved the characters. I could feel the chemistry between Connor and Jamie. The sex scenes were so hot too. This is a good, quick reading.But too bad it's written in third person POVOverall I enjoyed reading this

    17. Cara McKenna delivers a fun and flirty short story that takes place in Ireland. You know what that means right? We lucky readers get a hot Irish hero!Conner Kelleher embodies all that women hope to encounter when they go on vacation. At the bar that his family own, this is where Jamie meets Conner. Since the story isn’t very long, you can expect instant chemistry between the two. McKenna plays it safe by keeping the banter light and flirtatious. However, I really thought that romance flitted a [...]

    18. Cara McKenna. I've been fairly shouty with praise for this author since I read Unbound last year.(How the hell that book hasn't won every award is beyond me) She creates strong, smart and sensitive heroines and the most interesting array of men. McKenna has made me fall ass-over-teakettle in love with an alcoholic, reclusive Scot with a wicked sexy rope fetish, an agoraphobic Parisian gigolo, a construction worker/boxer with a penchant for rough role-playing, an orderly in a psychiatric facility [...]

    19. It's my second book by Ms McKenna after Unbound which I greatly enjoyed, and I really, really liked this one as well. It's the perfect erotic romance novella. I'm getting to like Ms McKenna's writing style a lot - her stories flow smoothly, the characters are well developed and real. This was the case with this book, as well. Two ordinary people dealing with normal issues come together and something extraordinary happens between them. They are very likable and easy to relate to.The story is told [...]

    20. This was both sweet and hot in equal measures, and I loved both Connor and Jamie. This author is one of my favourite go-to authors, and so I knew the storyline would be good, and the writing tight. Set mainly in Ireland, you can tell that the author has spent some time in the South West of the country (or at the very least knows someone from the area). Most of the details were spot on. The reason I docked it a star was because there were some inaccuracies about Irish life/dialogue. I'm not going [...]

    21. Loved it! Everything I've come to expect from a Cara McKenna novel. Well done! And man do I love Irish Hotties. Makes me want to buy a plane ticket to see if I can get my own Irish fling. lol Update: 2 years later and I still love this book, maybe more than the first time I read it. I want a Conner!

    22. 3.62 "Sweet and Sexy" StarsThis was very different from what I've come to expect from Cara McKenna. It was very cute and sweet. I liked it a lot though. Basically you have Jamiewho has just been dumped by a worthless boyfriend she gave up all her dreams for. She flies to Ireland for vacay where she meets Connor uber sexy and seriously charming bartender. They hit it off immediately and it was too cute to watch. I usually don't like "sweet books." I favor more intense alpha males with issues and [...]

    23. 3.5 stars. I prefer this author's stories that have more bite, but this novella is very charming and romantic. Enjoyable.

    24. 3 starsI often hear about Cara McKenna, that she write some best erotica story. I want to read her Willing Victim, but I'm just too freaked out to read about the "almost-rape" theme. Nor that I have time to read her other works (sound cliche, eh?). So, when Harlequin Cosmo Red Hot Read have "Her Best Laid Plans" on Netgalley, I snatched a copy. Not just because I want to try Ms McKenna's work, but the blurb catched my interest. Set in Ireland with a hot-to-trot man with sexy accent? Sold!When I [...]

    25. Full review to come But OMG Connor!Edited 3/31I picked up Her Best Laid Plans on a whim the other day. I’m a hit or miss fan of Cara McKenna’s stuff, some of it I absolutely love (AFTER HOURS) while some of it just isn’t right for me. This novella… was perfect for me. It was exactly what I was looking for that day. The perfect story, the perfect length… the perfect boy… lol Okay so maybe not perfect, but he was definitely swoony and sexy.Jamie Webb is in Ireland all by herself recen [...]

    26. I wanted to crawl inside this book. From start to finish, I loved this story! I was sad when I read the last page. I wanted to keep going with Jamie and Connor! I want my own Connor! I loved him. Hard. I, I, I---want more. Jamie's on a trip to Ireland. She was supposed to be traveling with a friend, but ended up on her own. So, what's a girl to do on her own in Ireland? Why, meet a delicious Irishman! The friendship, passion and ease of their relationship really won me over. And, who doesn't lov [...]

    27. “You think you’re awfully charming, don’t you?”“And you’re awfully worried I’ve charmed you.” A cocky pronouncement, but the way he said it, so quietly, so pointedly Charming indeed.“I love your voice,” she murmured.“You want to hear me?” Even that question was doing the job, like liquor snaking through her.“Yeah.”“Sweet or dirty?” he asked.“Whatever you’re thinking.”He obeyed without hesitation. “I’m thinking I can’t remember ever wanting someone so b [...]

    28. A short book by Cara McKenna with deliciously drawn characters and a simple, sweet and just a tad steamy story about two people not believing that they could be falling in love after just knowing each other for less than two weeks.Jamie has been dumped by her long-time live in boyfriend. She had put her own college plans on hold and followed him to California where she worked hard and he went to medical school. After he graduated the plan was for him to finance her education. Instead she got wel [...]

    29. This was one of those moments where I told myself I was only reading a chapter. After all, I'm already reading four other books. Four! I can't start a fifth. I was just sitting in a spot away from all of my other books, and this one was so conveniently located right in my Kindle app. I just needed to fill ten minutes, and then I would stop.Yeah. Right. What a dumbass.This is Cara McKenna. When have I ever just read a chapter of one of her books? I can only assume that my greedy subconscious, who [...]
