My family’s whiskey empire needs to keep me as CEO. But thanks to my dad’s will, to take my place as rightful head of the company, I need to find a wife. If I could just get my brother Sean's pain-in-the-arse best mate, Grace, out of my head long enough to focus on finding a decent woman.

The woman maddens me, but she's a longtime friend of the family, so giving her a job as my assistant is the only way I can keep everyone off my back. But the more time I spend with her, the more I find myself looking differently at this girl from my past.

Too bad she’s decided not to give me the time of day.

3 1/2 *

I enjoyed this book for the most part. I understand it's book #2 (Grace & Jack's story) and part of the Murphy brothers series. It's an easy light hearted romance with a bit of steam. I sometimes like to add in these romance books in-between my thrillers. Some of the words and phrases used we ...more

This was a relatively quick romance read and I really enjoyed it. I did however struggle to connect to the characters. I didn't dislike them but they didn't wow me. I would like to read the first book in this series then see if I feel more of a connection to the family.

I enjoyed  the story-line thou ...more

This second book in The Murphy Brothers series was just as enjoyable as the first. This time it's Jack Murphy feeling the pressure of find a wife to satisfy the caveat in his father's will that requires all the brothers marry within a year before they can inherit the family whiskey business. How har ...more

This is the second book in the Murphy Brothers series and it is every bit as delightful as the first novel. In this story, Jack is the confirmed bachelor and CEO of Murphy's, the family business empire. However,a provision in his father's will requires him to be married within a year or to forfeit h ...more

By Angella August 07, 2018

I really enjoyed this book. I love a good office romance and a "I love my friends brother" romance. This book had them both and I loved it. I found all characters to be likable except the grandma. Her role in this book was annoying. I would have given this book a full 5 star rating but the slang the ...more

I was going to type "MOM, I WROTE THIS"
Then I remembered one time I took a picture of myself with my first author banner and put "Look, Ma, I'm on a banner," and my mom who really doesn't know Facebook kept commenting on it and it got weird.

So that's that. ...more

Jack just says the sweetest words, “if shagging was what you wanted, I would oblige. But I’m a gentleman, Miss Evans. I’ll only make you come if you ask nicely and if I know you’re not completely shitefaced.” Jack is just the sweetest trying to make his girl feel better, “she may have seen that we’r ...more

I loved this Irish man/British girl story. Actually her grandparents were Irish and she spent many summers with them and making friends with Sean Murphy. Sean has an older brother who needs to marry. Hmm? Weird premise but the three brothers want to inherit their dad's pub franchise business and bei ...more

This is my 1st book from this author so I went in blind nit knowing anything about her or the way she wrote. I had come across this story on Netgalley, and I do love a rich boss falling for his assistant, but this was totally different to the no ...more

Irish on the Rocks by Magan Vernon a five-star read that will melt your mind. This is the second book in the Murphy Brothers series and these brothers just get so hot they would melt the ice in your glass just by looking at it and what excites me most is the fact that we still have another brother t ...more

By We Like them Dark Book Blog September 16, 2018

This is a great, fast paced, extremely light hearted book! In a world full of dark romances, this was a nice break for a happily ever after with no hassle.
Jack and Graces story has a lot of my favorite tropes. There’s an office romance-and it’s also enemies to lovers. We got a lot of the burning hot ...more

What a fun read this turned out to be! When his father’s death means he has to be married to inherit his family’s business it creates a real dilemma - especially as the woman he’d choose is the best friend of his brother. What’s a man to do?

Get ready for heated attraction, conflicting feelings, mixe ...more

I can not get enough of these Irish brothers!!
Irish On The Rocks is about Jack Murphy, the oldest Murphy brother. Boy or boy what a story this was! The ending had some angst that had me on the edge of my seat, reading as quickly as I could to figure out what would happen next!! Love, love, loved it! ...more

4.5 Stars!! This was a really enjoyable book! I haven’t read book 1 yet but luckily this book, the 2nd in the series, can be read without reading the first book and it’s still understandable. I loved the main characters, Grace & Jack! I would’ve liked more info about Grace & Jack when they were youn ...more

Oh Jack, the sexy, funny, compassionate, loveable man, how you found your match in Grace. They challenged each other constantly, and were drawn to one another. Their chemistry was off the charts. I loved how she wanted to be independent and not in a relationship. But reconnecting with Jack h ...more

By Brandi August 12, 2018

Seeing all the changes Grace has made after so many years was something he could have never anticipated. Jack wasn’t prepared for how stunning she turned out and one look could leave him utterly speechless. Still trying to come to terms with the stipulations of his father’s will he never considers G ...more

I received Irish on the Rocks by Magan Vernon from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This has no impact on my thoughts. My thoughts are my own.

When I first started Irish on the Rocks I wasn't into it and had to put it down for a few days to read something else. I picked it up again later o ...more

Grace is smart as a whip and can toss witty remarks around like its nothing. She has been through quite a lot these last few months, but in spite of that she continues to be determined and as hardworking as ever. After her parents divorced and she lost her job, she found herself believing marriage w ...more

Irish on the Rocks is the second in the Murphy Brothers series. I received an eArc from Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC in exchange for my honest opinion.

Anche qui il massimo dei voti per me.

Jack è il fratello più grande dei Murphy e Grace è la migliore amica di Sean (il piccolino dei Murphy che sarà protagonista insieme a Leah del tre).
Non sono amici ne altro i due, ma una sera lei rovescia sul bel costume firmato di Jack una bevanda e tutto nasce ...more
