Waiting for Wednesday (Wild Irish Book 3) by Mari Carr
It’s Wednesday and Tristan Collins works at his family’s Pub, like he does every Wednesday. He has been in a foul mood for a while because Wednesday evenings were the one time a week when is good friend Lane would come and visit with him. Lane left town without a word about a year ago and Tristan is finally ready to believe that she won’t be coming back. Tristan is looking forward to closing the bar any minute and he becomes annoyed when the door opens and he has to serve another customer. He looks over and sees Lane sitting in the same seat she had.
Lane has decided to return to Baltimore, she has missed the seasons, her sports teams and most of all she missed Tristan Collins. Its Wednesday night, so Lane has come to see Tristan at the bar and have her usual glass of wine with him as he tends bar. She catches Tristan by surprise as he hasn’t been expecting her. She can tell that he is hurt by the way she left town.
Lane is not looking for another relationship but Tristan but finds herself immersed in the Collins clan as she begins to take care of their father. Tristan is thrilled to have Lane in his place and slowly begins the process of breaking down the wall Lane has built around herself. While Tristan and Lane navigate their relationship they have to overcome Lane’s past that is not yet ready to let her go.
I absolutely loved this book. I really think it was well written and the characters were great. I really enjoyed the dynamics between Tristan and Lane. Tristan is a wonderful character who wants to show Lane that she can be independent while in a relationship. When I read about Lane’s history I was so glad that she found her way into the Collins’s clan! The sex between them is smoking hot!
The book continues to show the Collins Clan and it makes me wish I was part of it and hang out at the pub. Can’t wait for the next book!

Tristan Collins knows Lane Bryce is strictly hands-off. She’s smart, funny, kind… and married. But he still looks forward to her once-a-week visits to the family pub where he tends bar. When she fails to arrive one Wednesday, Tris is concerned. When he learns she’s in the hospital, brutally beaten after attempting to leave her unhappy marriage, he’s enraged. Tris vows to protect her, but doesn’t get the chance – Lane checks out of the hospital and disappears without a trace.
A year later, newly divorced Lane is back, and enjoying her independence too much to embark on a relationship. Tris intends to prove she can have freedom and love, and he’s not above using seduction to do it. The more she resists, the more he sets her body ablaze with pleasure the likes of which she’s never known.
After a lifetime of disappointment, trust doesn’t come easily for Lane. But when her ex-husband reenters her life, threatening her independence, her happiness, she could discover too late that Tristan is the one man worthy of not only her trust, but also her love.
