Product description

Product Description

Stella Rosencourt is the premier event coordinator of Savannah’s elite. With her biggest event of the year ahead - the Mayor's St. Patrick's Day ball - she has little time for distractions. But the mysterious Padraig MacNamara and his lush Irish accent are definitely proving to be a distraction.

Padraig MacNamara is an inked enigma. A man of few words who crashes in the back room of the Jaded Lily tattoo parlor and associates with questionable people around town. Stella is convinced he has a vendetta against her but over what, she doesn’t know. Her instincts are warning her to stay away. Her curiosity is begging her to figure him out.

What happens when you’re wickedly attracted to the person you hate the most?

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book so hard. 2 March 2017

***4.5 Stars***

Stella Rosencourt is an event planner in Savannah. She is strong, independent, but most of all she's kind and considerate. She works with the wealthy people of Savannah, and even though they can be total dicks to her, she doesn't let it get to her. So when she is tasked to help plan the second St. Patrick's Day party for the mayor's uptight and snooty wife, she does everything that is asked of her. Even if it's all ridiculous. That is until someone shows her what true Irish traditions and St. Patrick's Day are like.

Enter Padraig MacNamara. The foul-mouthed, tatted-up Irishman whom Stella can't stand. And he can't stand her either.

When Stella has an incident on the street and needs the help of the Irish hottie, he calls her names and leaves her to help herself. Instead of brushing it off like she normally does, Stella stands up for herself, and she ends up getting to know the real reason why Padraig can't stand her. As much as she tries to keep hating him, the kindness and consideration she has for others forces her to see him in a different light.

Much like Stella, I hated Padraig at first. He was a straight up dick. His hatred for one of Stella's clients had him thinking she was the same. But when he takes the time to get to know her, he sees who she really is.

Aside from Stella and Padraig's relationship, I loved the secondary characters as well. Kerry, Stella's assistant, is the kind of friend we all want. Luca, the owner of the Jaded Lily tattoo parlor, is sarcastic and funny and a good friend to Padraig. Moira, Padraig's mom, was my favorite. Her love for her son is amazing. She is kind and caring, and she accepts Stella from the moment they meet. And I could hear both her and Padraig's accents in my head and I loved it.

The setting was depicted perfectly. I've never been to Savannah, but I could see every street, shop, or park that is described in my head. Jameson did an incredible job showing us the city, rather than just telling us where Stella lived. From the fountain in Forsyth Park to the alley behind Wet Willies bar, I felt like I was there, experiencing everything alongside Stella and Padraig.

I loved this book so much and I'm sad that it ended so soon. I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment of this series and I really hope it includes Stella and Padraig.

This iss a book with a gorgeous setting, a strong heroine, and an Irish hero. What more could you want?
5.0 out of 5 stars Great storyline, lovable characters... 1 March 2017

This is not a love at first sight book, but as the relationship of the characters developed, I quickly fell in love with them, and we were all in love by the end of the book;) I not only fell in love with the city more, but fell in love with the storyline, and the characters, Stella and Padraig. Jameson’s secondary characters are lovable too, and I hope some day to read more about them;)
But to Proper Irish... The main female character, Stella, is a strong, independent woman, who is relatable in so many ways. She stands up for what she believes. She is kind, and considerate, but not willing to let people push her around (at least, not for long). At first, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Padraig, because he was kind of an ass, but I quickly grew to love his character too, as the reason for his behavior was revealed. His heritage means so much to him, as does letting the people of Savannah know what a St. Patrick’s Day celebration should really portray. Padraig and Stella work together to do just that (with the help of some important people in their lives and despite some backlash from others). On a side note, I could totally hear Padraig’s Irish accent in my mind, through the authors words, and I totally loved that too!

Padraig & Stella meet under some crazy circumstances and Padraig insults Stella who instantly hates him for his behavior. BUT alas, what’s meant to be will be and they find themselves much more cozy then the hate that used to consume them. He’s a jerk. She’s strong-willed. He’s sorry. She’s crazy about him. He’s crazy about her. Others make them both crazy.

I enjoyed this quick story as I have everything else from Ms. Jameson. She has a way of telling a story that keeps the reader engaged and looking for more. I also love that the “extras” are so much a part of the story that as a reader, I can’t help but want more of them as well.

The setting of this story is critical to the storyline in a way that few authors do, and even though I’ve never visited Savannah I now feel like I could be a seasoned tourist.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good first book but needs work 1 June 2017

I'm not sure if this is the author's first ever book or just in this series. But it definitely reads as a new author wrote it. It is a good story with interesting characters and even though not set in Ireland it has a huge Irish element. The characters could have been developed better because they definitely had potential, the sexy scenes needed work as it read like a scene and did not immerse the readers into the emotions involved. All in all a good easy read but had potential to be great. Because the characters weren't developed fully, as the reader I didn't fully connect with them or the story. 2.5 stars and suggests the author keep trying she has potential to be a author I'd follow.
5.0 out of 5 stars Broody arrogant Irishman? Yes, please 10 March 2017

I've never read anything by Zeia Jameson before but that's all about to change.
Proper Irish was incredible, a quick but fun read. What I loved most were the characters - from the two main characters to the supporting cast, they were all well developed and had their own quirks. Padraig stole the show for me though. Yeah, he comes off as an arrogant jerk, but once Stella gets to know him, so do the readers. And I'm betting it was impossible for anyone to not swoon and fall into this gorgeous man's arms.
