Rory Haven and Brittany Manion knew one another as children...
...but it's been a long time since their childhood summers at Summerhaven.
The Havens weren't the children who attended exclusive Summerhaven Camp in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire. They were the children of the owners, expected to “pull their weight” and absolutely forbidden to fraternize with the paying guests. But that didn't keep Rory from having a quiet, unrequited crush on gorgeous, popular, insanely-rich, Brittany Manion for three tortuous summers.
When all-grown-up, recently-engaged Brittany books the off-season summer camp for her upcoming spring wedding, she immediately recognizes Rory as the scorching-hot boy who wouldn’t give her the time of day. Meanwhile Rory, who senses that Brittany’s nuptials are less about Mr. Right and more about Mr. Right Now, launches the fight of his life to win the heart of the girl he’s always wanted.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

This is a super sweet introduction to a new series!
Rory and Brittany spent 4 summers as teenagers being around each other and attracted to each other, but neither ever did anything about it. Fast forward 10 years and they reconnect when she shows up to book his family's camp for her wedding.
Both Brittany and Rory are characters that are interesting and easy to relate to. Brittany has everything a woman could want - at least in material terms, but struggles with emotional connections. Rory shelved his dreams to keep the family business going after tragedy struck. Watching these two figure things out and form a connection was sweet to watch.
Fighting Irish not only focuses on Rory and Brittany's budding friendship turned romantic connection, but also on Rory's relationship with his brother and sister (they are fraternal triplets). Seeing how he puts family first makes him almost impossible not to like.
Fighting Irish is a truly enjoyable book and I am looking forward to seeing what comes next for the Haven siblings.
