Ruby Tuesday (Wild Irish Book 2) by Mari Carr
Teagan Collins is content with her life. She sings in her family’s Pub, she teachers music to kids and volunteers at the senior center. Sky Mitchell is a rock star hiding out in Maryland. He needs some time to himself as he contemplates the next step in his career, which is most likely a solo career. He hears one of Teagan’s songs and wants it to be his first solo recording. But Teagan won’t sell him the song because he wants to change. After a bit of squabbling the two start working together on Sky’s solo album. What they don’t realize is that someone does not want Sky to leave the bad and will stop at nothing to make sure he stays. While they are writing music they are also falling for each other.
The banter back and forth between Sky and Teagan is great. I laughed out loud many times while I was reading the story. I think this is a great story about taking the time to look at someone and not judging them by their looks. Teagan comes across as a folksy singer that wears bright colors. She is looking for a guy that will see beyond the colors and the music. Sky is that guy! It was great to see Teagan have her chance at becoming a star. Not only do Teagan and Sky make great music together (literally) they burn up the sheets as well. Sky took things slow with Teagan and I thought that was great. Again it was great to read more about the Collins clan, I can’t seem to get enough of them! Ruby Tuesday is a great addition to the series and definitely worth reading.
Synopsis from Book/Publisher:
Wild Irish, Book Two
Sky Mitchell is hiding out in Baltimore, seeking peace and solitude while he struggles with a career decision. Lead singer of popular rock group The Universe, he’s thinking of going it alone. Wandering into an Irish pub, he’s ecstatic to discover the breakout single for his solo album-but the songwriter doesn’t want to sell. One musical challenge later, not only does he win the song, but also a writing partner to complete the rest of the album.
Teagan Collins has never aspired to fame and fortune. She’s content taking care of family, friends and neighbors, and singing in her family’s pub. Working on an album with Sky tests her patience . . . and her libido. The hot rocker plays her body like a fine instrument, their desire deepening with each song they write.
But someone doesn’t want Sky to go solo, and is repeatedly trying to sabotage the couple’s efforts. Undaunted, Sky wants Teagan to join him onstage at his farewell concert to sing her original, Maybe Tomorrow.
