Saorsa

[seer-sha]Noun – Scottish Gaelic

Freedom, salvation, redemption, liberty.

It’s not a concept Charlotte Rose has ever considered.

She’s busted her tail her entire life.

Worked at her doomed marriage

and slaved to build the company she loves.

Work is life.

Love?…yeah, that’s something she’s learned to live without.

Divorced and tired of the fight over her beloved business,

she’s jaded and she knows it.

Charlotte needs a fresh start.

So she packs up and moves across the ocean,

to be with the one solid thing left in her life: Her best friend.

With all her energy focused on what the future holds,

she dives right back into old habits,

throwing herself into work and neglecting life and love.

She has no idea life is choking her until him…

They meet by chance, and now he’s everywhere.

He’s so centered, so calm.

She needs someone to save her from herself.

Redeem her from her past mistakes.

Free her to discover who she really is.

It’s clear that the enigmatic Rhys has found his saorsa.

The question is: Can he help Charlotte find hers?

 

My review:

I devoured this book in one sitting! It was captivating. The first two chapters I was cheering on Charlotte as she dealt with her ex husband. She was brilliant and he deserved exactly what happened! Charlotte was a fantastic character overall. Professional, intelligent, accomplished, and successful. She packs up and follows her dream of moving to London to be near her best friend Louise and a new job.
In the airport upon arrival, she meets Rhys, and then keeps running into him around town. They eventually start dating.
I will say that I figured out who Rhys was pretty early on in the book but the reveal was much better than I expected. Louise wasn’t the stereotypical sidekick best friend, and Michael was a nice new friend addition as well. I am hoping he and Connor get their own stories as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hated to have it end! I hope we get more of these characters in the future.

Excerpt
“Can I get your number?” he asks, catching my elbow to halt me and then letting it go just as fast.
I still for a moment then look back and shake my head. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
He faintly tilts his head and studies me for a moment. The crystal blue of his eyes bore into me, breaking his stare I look over at Louise and Cami.
“Charlotte,” he implores in his rich whiskey voice. I move my gaze back to him, shaking my head. “How long are you in town for?”
“I’m here to stay,” I reply softly.
A hint of a smile quirks on his lips. “Maybe we will run into each other again then.”
“Perhaps,” I offer. “If we are meant to be friends, I’m sure the stars will align and we
will meet again.” I was channeling my inner Louise with that line of rubbish. I have to bite the inside of my lower lip to keep myself from smiling.
“You are very intriguing, Charlotte.”
My name on his lips gives me pause, but I force myself to finish our goodbye. It’s for the best. This is the first day of my exciting new life, the last thing I want or need is to get tangled up in a messy break up. “I’ll catch you later,” I say with finality. Turning to walk away, I try to make a smooth departure but trip on air. One second I’m falling and the next I’m caught around my waist and lifted back up to my feet. I don’t even have a second to process what happened before he speaks.
“Careful, kitten,” he murmurs close to my ear. “You’ll hurt yourself.”
I shiver, goose bumps ripple down my arms. I turn around to look at him and our faces are too close for comfort. I take a step back so that I can breathe. “Thank you,
I’m not usually so clumsy.”
“It was my pleasure…What’s your last name?”
I wonder for a moment if I want to give him that information, but then it comes unbidden from my lips. “Rose.”
“Charlotte Rose.” He takes my hand, bending down to kiss my knuckles. “Until we meet again,” he says softly, and then he turns and walks away.

Title: The Other Side of Wrong

Series: Bad Decisions #3

Author: Christi Barth
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 5, 2019
Blurb
Jake McQuinn’s lived and loved the rock-star lifestyle. But a family scandal ripped him away from his band and back home. Back to boredom, a buttoned-up sham of a job, and a desperate need to whitewash his image. His family’s pharmaceutical company could crumble without him. His band’s epic comeback won’t happen without him. How’s he supposed to choose which one to save?
Cassidy–just one name as befits one of the biggest pop stars on the planet–has discovered the downside to fame. Finding a decent guy to date who understands her demanding career and crazy schedule? Impossible. Until she remembers the rocker who almost rocked her world a few years ago…
Jake thought he walked away from her for all the right reasons. Cassidy, however, intends to get him back. And she’s going to use his band’s shot at redemption and rock legend status as leverage. If she convinces him to date her again and drop the good guy routine? Even better. Doing the right thing for everyone else feels so wrong for Jake. And making a bad decision about hooking up with Cassidy could be the best thing yet…

Excerpt
“It’s a blue moon rose. Because the chances of us getting together again after Coachella? Well, it could only happen once in a blue moon.”
Her head canted toward him. Dampness at the corners of her eyes made them shimmer. Guess it hadn’t been a stupid idea after all. She swiped at the tears with long, glittery nails that made him think of champagne.
“This is the most romantic thing I’ve ever received. The most thoughtful. Thank you, Jake.”
“Thank you for pushing your way back into my life.” They stood there, staring at each other, for a long beat. And then another. And another. The air was charged with…something.
Could she tell how hard—and how easy—it had been for him to make this gesture?
Could she tell that he never wanted this night to end?
Could she tell all the things Jake was tempted to say, but knew would
just make splitting up after the Garden a million times harder?
Cassidy’s whole body jerked, as if she’d needed to physically break away from their long, deep, look. The tension also broke faster than a snapped guitar string. In a teasing voice she asked, “Does this mean you’ve forgiven me for that? For being so forward that day in your garage?”
“Come here and find out.” Jake backed across the living room of the enormous suite. He put a deliberate swagger in his walk. Whatever had or hadn’t just passed between them, he knew damn well what Cassidy wanted now. So, he unbuttoned his shirt, a slow strip tease that didn’t need any music.
Cassidy followed, an extra swing in her sassy hips, too. Then she stopped, right in the doorway, with one hand on the frame way above her head. It lifted the hem of her dress high enough to show off the under curve of her sweet, sweet ass. “Is that a bed? An actual bed? We’re going to have sex in a bed?” She slowed the last three words down in exaggerated emphasis.
“I promised you a real date. Dinner, flowers, and now, yeah, sex in a bed. We’re going old school tonight, Cass.”
“I like it.” She kicked off her high-heeled sandals to trail her fingertips along the deep brown comforter on the king-sized bed. “What will we do with all the extra room?”
“Don’t worry. I’ve got plans.”
