Publisher's Summary

Duty calls for the youngest O’Brien son.

In a flash of heat, smoke, and flame comes a time of great suffering. Seany O’Brien has kept with family tradition, choosing a career as a first responder. But his choice brings risk and heartbreaking sacrifice.

Lost in a fog of pain and grief, not even the fierce love of the O’Brien clan can pull him from his unending nightmare. But sometimes salvation arrives on two legs, and other times on four.

Maureen Rogers has lived a lifetime in the six years since she said goodbye to a dashing, young Irishman. They were too young, too passionate, and separated by too many miles. But she is a girl no longer. No man has ever captured her heart like the beautiful Irish boy of her girlhood. When Seany O’Brien is wounded in the line of duty, Moe answers a desperate call, bringing her to the bedside of her first love, and unexpectedly to the vast and breathtaking hills of Connemara.

Looking forward to the Next tale

I have listened to all the tales and novellas. I had stepped out of my usual genre with book one and kept listening. Justine Eyre is probably the reason. The series is so well read. Quite often very humorous and I had some really good laughs. Nice balance of drama, mystery, politics, religion , like real life. I think the sons were all taught there bedroom skills by dad because they have the same routine, in the same order, with the same dialogue, cut and paste in each tale :). The Marine Corp "oorah" is little unrealistic (as a military brat, married military, and command ombudsman for 5 years, I say its simply not that perfect) but it would be nice if it was. Those are just personal irks. Everything else was pleasure, and if Brigid has a come to Jesus in one of the next few tales there will be real magic.
Stacey Reynolds is quite cleaver weaving the different threads of life evenly together, and I like the way she uses music to fortify the story. I often stop and listen to the songs that are being sung in the story line to enhance the moment.

Looking forward to the next tale.

Enjoyable...

I really enjoyed these books...but.....you knew there was going to be a "but".... :)
I found the sex scenes too explicit, too repetitive and too drawn out. I am no prude by any means, but after the second book, I just skipped over them. It was always the same, too much and not really necessary for the story line.

Another great O’Brien story

I love this author and narrator! It is a match made in heaven. You will want to listen to every book in the O’Brien series. I can’t wait for the next one in the series later this year. Enjoy!

Heart Breaking with a HEA

Look, if you want sexy smoldering Irish Men with a Tragic Heartbreaking story that finally claims the one woman who can fully understand him because she is a BA with plenty of tragedy of her own, then this is the book for you.

Stacy knows how to write a character so vividly; flaws, heroics, love, anguish, every possible emotion, that you feel it with them. Your heart is shattered, you yell at them for being an idiot, you laugh at their antics and you sigh when she wraps it all up and gives them their well deserved HEA.

As someone in the military, with a spouse also in the military... Stacy hits you right at home with all the hopes and fears that her characters face. 7 books in and I keep coming back for more. Though at times she and Justine have me crying as I'm trying to drive... it is well worth it!

What a tearjerker but oh so good

Justine Eyre successfully takes you on Stacey Reynolds poignant and well written story in the O'Brien chronicles. Cried and laughed my way through it and totally enjoyed it. Well done all!
