Product Description

Product Description

Patience McKinnon has never even tried to live up to her unfortunate name. Her sisters would gladly point out that she’s impetuous, fickle, and stubborn to a fault. History has taught her that she’s the only one, besides those crazy sisters, that has her best interests at heart...and she’s not about to let down her guard and let herself get hurt. She did that once...and that was more than enough. Next time, she’s fairly certain that she’d rather just shoot first and ask questions later, thank you very much!

Enter Abel Turner. The suave town attorney has had Patience McKinnon in his sights for years. Sure, he's sowed his wild oats along the way, but he always knew he'd come back to the beautiful blonde bartender that fills his dreams and drives him crazy at the same time. After all, he owes her...and he plans to rectify the bad impression he made in the past with a humdinger of a sensual night.

But that one night may just change both of their worlds...forever. Will Patience overcome her insecurities? And will Abel ever convince her to trust him again?

Join the entire town of Paradise and the intrepid McKinnon sisters in this humorous and poignant erotica romance! Standalone.

*Sarah O’Rourke’s Ready, Willing and Abel is a Suspense Romance that is Book 3 in Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters series. Patience McKinnon is a pretend wild child who is very close to her sisters and the men in their lives. Their lives have been a connected chain of violent mishaps. She has adopted a one and done interaction with the male sex until Abel Turner wants a do-over, “Okay, she was getting in way too deep here because Abel Turner was entirely to adept at saying all the things a woman wanted to hear. Somehow, someway, she needed to find a way to get him off her and out of her space.” Unfortunately he leaves a piece of himself.
Abel Turner is the Paradise town attorney working on the case involving the Sisters but more important to Abel is getting a do-over with Patience. “Between her natural beauty, sassy mouth and kickass body, there wasn’t a single quality about her that didn’t call to the inner caveman.” And this feeling had been growing. He knows how he hopes the do-over will change their lives, he just never thought of what it really brings.
Ready, Willing and Abel can be read as a standalone, which is what I did, but I think you would get more out of the stories if you read them all. Sarah O’Rourke gives us a suspense romance with funny, sassy sisters who you want to find their happily ever after. The storytelling is funny, sharp and attention holding. It is a who-done-it wrapped in major humor. You will love the cast of characters that colorfully make up Paradise. I was given this for a fair review. Give Sarah O’Rourke’s Ready, Willing and Abel a try, I know I intend to go back and read the whole Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters series.

Thanks Sarah O’Rourke & Good Writing

4.0 out of 5 stars Wild ride full of humor 28 October 2015
By ANJasper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been waiting, not so patiently at times, for this book. Those McKinnon sisters are a force to be reckoned with, as are the men who love them. This series by Sarah O'Rourke is charming and full of twists and turns that left me wanting more. I will say that there were a few parts that were a bit repetitive and seemed to drag a bit. However, those were very few and far between and didn't detract from the overall story at all. I think they further illustrated how shaken up and anxious Patience and Abel were over everything that was happening.

Patience's character had intrigued me from the start of the series and I was ready to get to know her and the man who obviously adores her in more depth. Firecracker. That is the best word to describe Patience. Though Abel would say Hellion. She is sassy, bold, unapologetic and loves fiercely. But don't cross her or her sisters or you've gone to war with the wrong woman. After one intense night, she finds herself in an unexpected situation. Her reaction- disbelief, anger and then fear were very realistic and true to her character. This is the catalyst for everything else that happens in the book- and what a ride it was.

There is no shortage of drama in the small Tennessee town. If it isn't putting back the pieces after a drug-related shooting, there is a raging ex-girlfriend. As if that isn't enough, there are threats coming from an unknown source and exactly who they're being directed at is also anyone's guess. What I loved was that it sent Abel, and all of the men, really, into protection mode. He isn't going to let anything or anyone, even Patience, stand in his way of getting his woman. I liked that while he was throwing down the gauntlet, he gave his woman the time she needed to come to the realization that this was going to happen. Oh, that Abel. Is is equal parts broody, sexy and sweet. His big grand gesture towards the end put a major smile on my face.

But, of course, there was that jaw dropping moment that had me holding my breath. I was furiously reading to see what would happen and to make sure that everyone was going to be alright. Holy smokes, talk about heart pounding. Ugh- my heart was aching for everyone- from Patience and Abel to Honor and Zeke. Yes! There was a hearty dose of Honor and Zeke in this book. Those two- just- wow. This was is a great lead up to what will be the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sanity doesn't stand a chance with Abel on your mind.. Perfect balance of dark & soulful.. 23 October 2015
By Jelena Bosh - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition









From the first moment that I laughed out loud in chapter one, I KNEW this book will be one of those that I wouldn't be able to get over..

Have you ever started a book and felt straight away that the writing style was you? It just resonated so well with your own thoughts and POV that it was THAT easy to fall in love with it? Or that the story seemed to be heartbreaking, dark and sexy but funny at the same time? These are all some of the endless addictive qualities of READY, WILLING AND ABEL.

A girl that is too stressed and freaked out after she realizes what she thinks she isn't without a doubt not ready for: to become a mum. 13 pregnancy tests later she is at a breaking point of continuously telling herself that this could not be happening.. That it should not happen, least of all to her.. and just thinking about who was at the receiving end of this, only ever builds up a stronger headache..

Abel. A character that no matter what he says or does after his first chapter of being introduced to us, I will inhale every word that is his. It sounds weird I know, but just from seeing how he was describing Patience and his feelings for her, not to mention everyone else in his life, it kind of made me feel at ease with him? I felt like I could trust his own point of view no matter what. THAT type of connection with a fictional character is so damn hard to find, but Abel was just.. ugh.. I can't explain it but I loved everything that he stood for. I wont even start on his drool worthy sexy as hell looks or his dirty mind or even his bad boy attitude (mainly towards Patience) that I could only ever envy when it comes to those plain boys that find their way in my life. Sigh.. All those reality issues when getting engrossed with PERFECT fictional men.. Double Sigh.

The story is both dark, dealing with what happened with Abel's family and his extended family but also with how he always wishes that he would have been able to do something for the person who shot her.. It clearly wasn't a death shot but Abel still felt so much rage towards Tanner that he himself mentioned he would bring him back from his grave JUST so he could do some more damage.. That side shows an extremely important example in the way his feelings for her are anything but simple..

Patience regrets that night she spent with Abel 3 years ago but even worse she "hates" that she saw him once again a little while ago.

Now. She has no other choice but to live with her "mistakes".. though we do get to witness a relationship that grows so strongly, I could only wish that it was real. Abel doesn't know about Patience secret of their little one and once he finds out? There better be mercy for the wrath to unfold when a man claims HIS girl and is looking to repair the damage he caused..

Before, it was about them and only them. Their feelings, emotions, thoughts, desires.. NOW. Now they have another life that needs attention..

What will they do? What could possibly happen when 2 souls who are already too tainted to be fixed are brought back together?

Patience is anything but what her name suggests. Sassy, with an attitude, knows what she wants, isn't scared to stand up to him, and is now scared of what her life and the growing one she carries, will end up as..

Abel is the cocky, alpha male, with a sexy attitude to match his god like features but he has a heart of gold, especially when it comes to her.

She is his weakness, she always has been. But can he ever prove to her how much she means to him? Will she forgive and accept him?

There were so many twist and turns, so many bumps and even more emotional breakdowns. I loved every aspect of this gorgeous story. It was dark but that part was balanced out but the humor, it was also sexy as sin but heartfelt at the same time.. In few words, READY, WILLING AND ABEL was everything that you wish it was but more unexpected in only the best way possible!

Thank you so much Sarah O'Rourke for the ARC!! I haven't read the first 2 books in this series and even thought I know this particular one is a standalone, I am one clicking the others!!! I NEED more and more there shall be. Until next time, please create more Abel's... at least one extra so I can have my very own.. Uh yeah. You guys will understand my "normal self" once you see for yourself how sane you WONT be when delving into the world occupied by Abel.. You have been warned!

5.0 out of 5 stars who unfortunately does not favour her namesake but is the ultimate bad girl with a heart 14 October 2015
By Nicole McCurdy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
There were so many elements of this story that made me instantly recall all of those fabulous sixties Doris Day and Rock Hudson romances; the witty repartee, the aggressive banter that borderlines on overt flirtation, the comedic timing and ridiculous and hilarious circumstances or problems that occurred-except in Ready, Willing and Abel we have a very sexy, very dominant heterosexual hero in the form of attorney Abel Turner and an incredibly potty mouthed and fierce heroine in the shape of one Patience McKinnon, who unfortunately does not favour her namesake but is the ultimate bad girl with a heart.

Sarah O'Rourke is a pseudonym, comprised of two very talented and very funny authors who, not only manage to grasp the importance of sexual chemistry in their lead characters but also that a fabulous support system in the form of the McKinnon family women and their better halves can bring out the best in a story. They manage to bring forth some of the best sex scenes I've ever read in a novel and the next time the fair comes to town I DEFINITELY have to try my hand at the type of Ferris Wheel shenanigans these two get up to. Oh. My. Lord! Scorching.

The great thing about Sarah's books, is that they are consistently chock full of drama, hysterics, suspense, fantastic and imaginative sex scenes and that all important element of love and spark of passion. And what a love story this one is. One night of unbridled passion that has a startling and positive effect on the feuding Patience and Abel's lives. Patience was awesome and just as complex and fierce and independent as always and Abel was utterly incredible, he had so much passion and fight in him and love for his wee 'hellion'. I'm absolutely dying for Honor and Zeke's story and I hope there are a few other characters going to get their own book too but this is seriously one series that I have loved and admired and become addicted to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 23 October 2015
By TNel17 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first
Cain's Salvation (Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters, #1)
Hard as Stone (Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters, #2)

This is the third book in the series but can be read as a standalone.
Patience is the complete opposite of her name, she's full of sass and mouthy. She is not at all patient for anyone. She falls for the sexy Abel but he screws everything up. Three years later Abel's still trying to prove and show himself to the one woman he cares about. To do that though he'll have to knock all the walls Patience has up and that's not going to be a easy job.They are complete opposites, so this leads to some fighting in this love hate relationship. After one night together their lives change forever and as a reader I was drawn in and couldn't stop reading!
This book has the perfect blend of laughter, drama, and will capture your attention from beginning to the very end. I recommend this as well as going to the other books in series as well. You will not be disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars say it isn't so 5 November 2015
By romance4ever - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Please say it isn't so. It happened again and it saddens me greatly. An author who I enjoyed reading her books because the heroes were faithful, protective, possessive and faithful alpha men wrote about one who wasn’t. The heroes in the first two books in the series, Cain and Jacob take one look at the heroines in those stories and other women cease to exist. They are their one and only and they pursue them. Cain and Jacob are faithful, loving, possessive and protective alphas and I loved them for that. Here, Abel, not so much. Abel took Patience, the heroine’s virginity, not giving her satisfaction, and then for about 3 years continued on with his manhole ways, sexing OW. Patience was not his one and only but rather one among many. I can handle it if a hero is a one-night stand guy before being with the heroine but after he is, she needs to be it for him and that was not Abel. Also he certainty was not possessive or protective because while he had his fun going through countless women, he watched her occasionally flirt with and date OM. Only after around 3 years when he decided that he got his fill of OW did he decide to pursue Patience. In my mind, he was too late. I am in the minority but I sympathized with Patience for what he did to her and the only things I feel that she did wrong was sleep with him again and allow herself to get pregnant. I have no confidence that Abel will stay faithful to her. He may go through a mid-life crisis where he wants to be free again to sleep with OW, returning to his manhole or get mad at her and decide to seek comfort elsewhere. I am not sure whether I am wiling to take the chance and read more books in the series as the heroes may be like this one.
