Forever Dublin by Brittney Sahin



Goodreads Review




I once lived in two different worlds—billionaire businessman by day, fighter by night. When the suit came off, the gloves came on.

It’s been five years since I last stepped into the Octagon, since my life spun out of control. I haven’t even so much as gone near a fighting ring. I promised my family I’d never raise my fists again.

But when my best mate, Les, lands himself in trouble with a notorious Dublin crime lord, I must break my promises. I have to do the one thing I vowed never to do: fight. I have to fight to save him and everyone in his life . . . including Anna Drake, the innocent and gorgeous woman Les tricked into rooming with him.

Anna Drake is off limits. She’s innocent and sweet—everything that I’m not. She’s also interning at my company—a lawsuit waiting to happen.

I have to save her, to pull her and Les out of the mess that he’s made. But the more time we spend together, the more I’m falling for her. And the more I fight, the more I crave it. I don’t deserve Anna . . . and yet, without her, I’m not sure if I can save myself.


When a book takes place in Ireland with a hot Irishman? Count me in.

Adam former underground fighter now turned business man has to go back to the cage to save his best mate and the girl he is falling for. He barely survived the first time to get out of Donovan’s clutches but now there is a lot more at stake. Money won’t make this go away. He is partly doing it for the right reasons but he is also being selfish he misses it. The adrenaline, the fighting he is a man on the edge who walks a fine line.

Anna has gotten an internship in Ireland she is escaping an abusive relationship. Dublin is her fresh start for the next 3 months. Her roommate Leslie, sorry to say this love but Leslie is a male name in Ireland so he was screwing with you there. I admire her courage to live her life, we see her confidence coming back.

Adam and Anna meet in Leslie’s flat and it is awkward. But it can’t get any more awkward right? Wrong. She is interning at the company he owns. Coincidence? I think not.  With their daily interaction and Anna now being in Donovan’s sights to get what he wants. Adam.

They start off as friends although they soon realise that it won’t work and they quickly go to become lovers. They are good together, I loved Adam. He has everything in a Hero. His one flaw he is a martyr. I’m not good enough for you, yaddy-yaddy-ya. Oh please she’s not a Miss Goody-Two-Shoes.

Nice add with the youth group that is actually my favourite part all the interaction with the kids and seeing what they are doing for them. With all the positive aspects in the book I got to say I just wasn’t connecting with the characters.

There is everything I like in a book, the writing style is solid. There is humour, chemistry and a great balance between the romance, suspense and the getting to know you part of the book. But I just couldn’t connect. This is me.

This is on me and not the author but I really do not like it when the Hero/heroine work in an office environment. Now this is just my personal opinion but Adam said Anna’s name in nearly every single sentence and at some point it just got to be too much.
