A loner at heart... 

Morgan McKenzie has been on her own since she ran away from a nightmarish foster home at the age of sixteen. Afraid to put down roots again only to be hurt once more, Morgan prefers to be constantly on the move. Until she is inexplicably pulled to the small Irish town of Grace's Cove. Before she knows it, Morgan is settling in and forming relationships for the first time in her life. Determined to keep her walls up to protect both her heart and the touch of magick she carries, Morgan fights against her growing attraction for the town's golden boy, Patrick Kearney. 

Patrick can't keep his eyes off of Morgan. Since the moment he saw Morgan across the dance floor at Keelin's wedding, Patrick has been lost. Pulled in by her beauty and vulnerability, Patrick's frustration grows as his advances are continually rebuffed. 
As Morgan rebels against her feelings for Patrick, she is swept into a battle against her own worst demons. 

I am now flying through this series! Thank you Audible!! LOL

Now, this one follows Morgan. We got a glimpse of her in the last couple of books. She has arrived to town and it seems she has powers too so that means she is somehow related to the previous characters. Poor Morgan was abandoned when she was a babe so she has no idea who she is or where she comes from. Poor girl was an orphan in a Catholic orphanage and they treated her horribly because she has powers. She is a jack of all magic trades. She has a touch of mind-reading and healing. She also has the awesome power of telekinesis. Patrick is a beloved local boy who has been drawn to her since he had seen her at the wedding for Keelin.

I understood why Morgan was the way she was, but she was horrible to Patrick. Yes, Patrick had some issues being patient, but he never pushed her in anything. Morgan has never been a relationship so she has a lot of rough edges and she is constantly pushing Patrick away. PLUS they are 18, so they are young and dumb on top of it all. Young love. 

I enjoyed watching Morgan fall in love with the town, Patrick, and herself. She had a lot of demons to fight and everyone is there to help her. 

There was one part near the end that had me yelling and I did shed some tears! Ugh! Luckily this is a HEA type of book, so I knew somehow, some way it would be fixed. Thank goodness, but I was really scared!!! I cannot say what, but I was worried!

The narrator is the same as the previous ones and she was flawless. After this series is done I must listen to more by her. 

In the end, I was frustrated with these two characters, but they had a lot to work through especially Morgan. It fit well and I enjoyed the journey. There was a lot of feels in this one. I am sad because I am nearly done with the series. I think there are 2 books left? SAD! But a good series that I highly recommend. I'll stamp this with 4 stars.

I like stories that introduce places as a character to also "fall in love with". This sounds like one of those.

Four stars, sounds like a book that worked for you! Or maybe it was a good narrative voice?
