#BookReview – “Ruby Tuesday” by Mari Carr


Sky Mitchell is hiding out in Baltimore, seeking peace and solitude while he struggles with a career decision. Lead singer of popular rock group The Universe, he’s thinking of going it alone. Wandering into an Irish pub, he’s ecstatic to discover the breakout single for his solo album—but the songwriter doesn’t want to sell. One musical challenge later, not only does he win the song, but also a writing partner to complete the rest of the album.

Teagan Collins has never aspired to fame and fortune. She’s content taking care of family, friends and neighbors, and singing in her family’s pub. Working on an album with Sky tests her patience…and her libido. The hot rocker plays her body like a fine instrument, their desire deepening with each song they write.

But someone doesn’t want Sky to go solo, and is repeatedly trying to sabotage the couple’s efforts. Undaunted, Sky wants Teagan to join him onstage at his farewell concert to sing her original, “Maybe Tomorrow”…

If they make it through today.


In the second book in the Wild Irish series, Teagan Collins is the singer and songwriter of the family, and she loves performing at her family-owned pub. Though she knows a world famous rock star is in the house, she doesn’t listen to his music and performs her set without a care. That is, until said rock star offers to buy her latest song and challenges her to a contest.
Sky Mitchell has lived and breathed music for years with his band The Universe, but wants to break out into a solo career. He’s hiding out in Baltimore to write songs for his new album and goes to a pub in order to relax. There he meets Teagan. She fascinates him, and he wants to record her song as much as he wants her in his bed.
Teagan and Sky are fun characters. He’s used to screaming, adoring fans, but she treats him like a normal person. He loves it! They share a love for music and start writing songs together, and soon their casual sexual relationship turns into so much more.
The Collins siblings play a bigger role is this story than they did in book one, and it was great seeing them and Pop again.
I really wish there would’ve been an epilogue to show Sky and Teagan’s future in the music business. Without it, there are some unanswered questions, but I can imagine what will happen next.
I really enjoyed this story and will look for others in the series.
4 Stars
