First sentence(s):
I weave around men and women alike with barely a pardon, struggling not to lose Aengus, nor to let on that I'm tailing him.

Armed with two years’ worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn’t let her die, but he also can’t be identified at the scene—so, he fled. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Pushing her away would be the smart move.

Maybe it’s because he saved her life, or maybe it’s because he’s completely different from everything she’s left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn’t the kind of guy she’d want to catch.

My two-bits:

Although this is book 3 of a series, it reads like a standalone novel.

The narration for this audio is just right. The story is enhanced listening to these two narrators representing the two sides of the story.

Because of the spark of chemistry between the couple, they grow and change to follow their hearts.

Also, the travel part of this book makes it a good candidate for summer arm-chair travel reading. Got some ideas for future places to visit.
