Proper Irish was quite the little tale and I for the most part really enjoyed my time with Padraig and Stella. I will be upfront about it though and say that a few things just fell a bit short for me personally. I struggled to connect and fall for with Padraig. He is a hot head and honestly I would have given up well before Stella. Heck she gave him all the chances, to which I will say made her shine as a strong-willed and fierce woman. She definitely held her own with Padraig and was probably the only one that could.
The overall writing and storyline was good however and I did enjoy the overall book once I was said and done. The characters did eventually grow on me and by the end I too found myself rooting for Stella and Padraig. Zeia Jameson was a new author to me though, and this is a first novel in a series so I simply see it as room to grow and chances for improvement. I enjoyed it enough to be back for more with book two. Overall a solid four star read from a new author is definitely not something to complain about!
