Catching Irish by Katy Regnery Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): Finian Kelley and Tate Jennings met at a wedding… …but that doesn’t mean they had romance in mind. Since meeting Finian Kelley at a wedding last fall, where they agreed to be physical with no strings attached, Tate Jennings can’t get him out of her head. So when an invitation arrives at her Florida condo, inviting Tate to spend St. Patrick’s Weekend back at Summerhaven where Finian works, she can’t resist heading up to New Hampshire for the festivities. Having just gotten out of an awesomely bad relationship, Finian Kelley has sworn off romance, which is why it’s good that hottie Tate Jennings lives far away in the Florida Keys. They may have fooled around at Rory’s wedding, but at least they have no future together, right? Wrong. When an annual celebration brings Tate back to New Hampshire, will Finian be able to stay away from the woman who’s already made an unwanted impression on the heart?

I received this novella in exchange for an honest review. I have given Catching Irish by Katy Regnery four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Warning: adult language and sexual content

Oh my, oh my! This book had me blushing, double-taking at the words I read and enjoying everything that this novella had to offer.

This is the fourth and final novella in The Summerhaven Trio series that can be read as a standalone, which is what I have done. Catching Irish follows two POVs in this novella; through the minds of Tate Jennings and Finian Kelley. Both characters are neither looking for love, but when you’re not looking for love it’s normally going to come and swoop in and catch you completely off guard! I don’t want to say too much about them as it is a short book (They don’t call it a novella for nothing Claire!) and I don’t want to ruin it all!

I absolutely adored the physical connection between Tate and Finian, it was very refreshing and lustful. I was not expecting to have such raw, uncensored details of their sexual encounters but, boy oh boy does Regnery deliver the steamy, passionate goods! Through the pages, you can definitely see how these two individuals neeeeed each other!

I knew it was going to be fairly quick as 1) it’s a novella and 2) …. well, it’s a novella, it’s what they are. So, although this book packs a punch around these two characters and their sexual chemistry, we don’t get to learn much about the secondary characters surrounding this novella. However, I believe the other characters that we get to meet at The Summerhaven are the characters who are the main focus in the other books of this series which I thought was a really fun idea. Also, there’s a fun little shorthand update (as Regnery calls it)of all the characters at the end of this novella which is a really lovely touch as there isn’t an epilogue to read through.

I have only read a few of Katy Regnery’s books but I am determined to read them all! This incredible author has such a way win storytelling, it’s very difficult to put her books down. I’m very happy to have learnt about this exceptional author and will continue to recommend her to readers who enjoy adult romance novels.
