Review by Wendy ♥ Straight Up Irish (Murphy Brothers #1) by Magan Vernon

What do you do when presented with a situation which cannot be changed, adjusted or ignored...
Well, the Murphy Brothers have been thrown for a loop. Not only have do they have to deal with the loss of their beloved Da... but he has put a huge condition for the brothers to inherit and carry on the family's business... the Murphy Pub Legacy. All three brothers must marry within a year of the Da's death and remain married for at least six months... otherwise the board can buy/sell the company out from under the sons.

None of the sons saw that coming....
None of them have a steady gal... or ever wanted one...
But these men are not about to lose the family's business.

Fallon Smith's life was never picture perfect. Had parents which would have been considered users...and not in a good way. Her only saving grace was her Nana and best friend Leah. With her Nana, Fallon has made all the sacrifices she can to make sure she is in the best assisted living arrangement. Fallon has made her education her priority and when she finally had finished her masters...she took the best position she could find to cover her expenses and piece of mind.

Because her situation in Chicago was not the best...between her parents thinking she was now going to support them and a dud of a boyfriend who she should have left long ago... going to Ireland sounded just perfect.

Fallon's position as assistant to the CEO of Murphy's Pubs was not easy. She had to deal with a taskmaster as a boss. He was an alright sort but could be very demanding and in the past went through assistants like tissue paper. The good news was Fallon was able to deal with him and all the other responsibilities thrown at her... including keeping one of the other brothers in line...

Yes, Connor Murphy was one of the high points of this job...Fallon was constantly emailing and calling him to make sure he was available for all of the necessary conference calls, arranging travel needs and any other marketing issues the company was planning. She also had reached him when he was "indisposed" and it wasn't her favorite times...

But now Connor and all the other brothers are here in Dublin and they are presented with this new obstacle their Da laid at their feet. Fallon hadn't met Connor in person but had been communicating with him for months, so when they finally did meet... all the little sparks and interests seemed to take hold in a way...

And when Connor takes Fallon for a "I'm Sorry I Split Coffee All Over You" dinner...before you know it, Connor is thinking he could help Fallon with her situation with Nana and College Loans...and she could be his Fake Wifey for the required time... each doing each other a solid...

Now both of these two are drawn to each other... and Connor can be rather fun...His way of teaching Fallon how to Golf and work a Stick Shift was quite yummy, heh heh....He had a way with his hands to name a few....

The only hiccup for me was the way the marriage of convenience kept being referenced and how Fallon was obsessed about the money issue...I got it... it was just how it was phrased for me...Nana was sweet, Fallon's friend Leah feisty... and probably the next one to be with a brother in the future.

This is the start of the series and each brother will have to belly up and find a wife if they plan to save the company for the family. There is the tough brother... Jack and the Rugby player, Sean and of course, Ireland.
