Reader's Review by Sparkymom

By Myla Jackson

Warning: Battle-hardened, ready-to-cut-loose Marine teams up with a stunning Irish lass who thinks she can handle him. You’ll need the luck of the Irish to hang onto your seat for this sexy, suspenseful race across the Emerald Isle.

Sparkymom rated Mack's Witness a 4.0 out of 5 stars "Easy sexy read"

This review is from: Mack's Witness (Hearts & Heroes) (Kindle Edition)

This novel begins with Mack, a Marine deployed to Afghanistan, and his chance meeting with Deirdre, an Irish supermodel. Both have very busy lives filed with travel all over the world, and neither are looking for a relationship or any sort of ties. Unfortunately for them, their chemistry is immediately off the charts and an impromptu kiss sends things over the top. Following some heavy flirting and maybe another kiss or two, the couple decide to risk a night together...no strings attached. Mack, however, has forgotten he comes from parents who fell in love at first sight and just left his brother's wedding which was also the result of a first sight Cupid strike. When Deirdre gets nervous and tries to leave in the middle of the night, she unknowingly becomes the only witness to a murder. Mack decides to use part of his leave from the Marines to become her protection until the killers are caught. The book is not that long, so the action heats up pretty quickly. Their attempt to get off the grid and hide fails, and Mack and Deirdre have to work together to bring down the criminals.

This book seemed a little short to me, so things happened really fast. Since it seems to be a theme for this series, the love at first sight whirlwind romance didn't really bother me. I have not read any other books in this series or by this author, but I had no problems keeping up with this story as a stand alone. I would have maybe liked a little more depth on the suspense end and more time for it to build, but the characters were great...especially Mack's family. Overall, it was a sexy easy read with awesome Irish accents.

Net Galley provided a copy of this book for review:-)
