Synopsis from Goodreads

Emily Musgrave is heading a direction she never wanted to go in Regency England--namely a convent to turn her from her waywardness. But it's more loneliness than rebellion that motivates her to escape her certain fate. Liam Jackson is going nowhere fast in modern-day Tennessee. Playing his Dobro in seedy bars and backward dives along with his fiddling sister, Tinker, is doing nothing for his music career--and even less for the dark places in his soul. Pixie mischief can not only change time-lines, it can change hearts. Because sometimes a girl just needs a little magic in her life.


     Kiss Me, I'm Irish is a fascinating tale that mixes the modern world with a little bit of paranormal thrown in. We follow a young woman named Emily who lives in 19th century England. She is starting to get a scandalous reputation since she was caught kissing a man. Her strict aunt wants to send her off to teach her a lesson. But Emily has other plans. She finds her chance at escape and takes it. Her escape is a bit more than she bargained for when she is thrust 200 years in the future. She stumbles on a woman named Tinker with her older brother, Liam. They are traveling across Tennessee to make a name for themselves as a band. They embark on an adventure like none other. This, of course, has plenty of consequences they never see coming.

     This read will definitely take your head for a little spin. I had no idea what I was in for, but I am in love. Street is quite a captivating author. I love her style. It is subtle, but it still knocks you off your feet. I love the concept. It is so creative. Emily starts off in 1813 and ends up in 2011. There are obviously plenty of challenges. Understanding what Emily is saying is one of them. I loved the interactions between them. I loved Emily discovering the new world and seeing how easily she fell in love with it, especially pizza (good girl). Emily seemed so strange, that you just couldn't help but smile. Everyone in the book had me laughing, especially Tinker. As the story progresses, you start to see that something is brewing, but you aren't sure of what exactly. It starts early and you soon see that nothing is exactly what it seems. It may seem like just a time travel story, but there is so much more.

    I absolutely adored Emily. For someone who was dropped 200 years into the future, she handled herself very well. She didn't breakdown and go into a fit of hysterics. I loved that she was able to stand up for herself. There were moments when she was around Liam that she lost a little bit of that strength, but I still love her. I really liked Liam. I did want to smack sense into him (well, more like punch), but he definitely had his moments. I hope to see him grow more. Tinker, like I said, was a blast and clearly a troublemaker. She can't keep her hands to herself as in she can't keep them away from people's things and money. You will learn from the get go to keep your eyes on her.

     This is a read that will have you hooked from the beginning. It is an easy read for anyone. This isn't a Young Adult book, by the way. I keep seeing that from other people. I guess given the tone, it could be interpreted that way though. This is in the New Adult territory for sure, but it is a great read for any age. The characters are very distinctive and you will have plenty of various emotions to them. They feel real and quite likable. Street has written a time travel romance that goes beyond the norm and won't confuse you. Definitely go and check this one out.

  1. Thank you so much for taking part, hun. (: I found Emily to be extremely amusing when she was learning to shave her legs and talking about Kama Sutra. She was so delightful to read about. (: I agree whole- heartedly about the new adult. It is a pretty clean read, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it was YA. They are adults, after all. Well said. (:

    1. You are so welcom, Ryan. Thank you for having me. I really loved Emily too. She just made me laugh. I loved the magazine scene. That made me laugh so hard, I had tears in my eyes. Yeah, I don't understand the YA thing for sure, but I guess because it is clean, even then that shouldn't immediately make it YA LOL! Thank you for the comment hon :)


Due to the daily spam comments I have been getting lately and to avoid the annoying word verification, Anonymous comments are no more. I do not want bargains on bags, watches, jerseys, boots and other crap. Geez, they could at least spam me with book and movie stuff, I would be somewhat interested LOL! Thank you :D
