Title: Ruck Me (Dublin Rugby #2)

She flies by the seat of her pants, and he’s a no nonsense kind of guy. When these two opposites attract … oh baby, it’s game on!
I’d called Aoife O’Shaughnessy a number of things, but dumb was never one of them. Through all the trouble she’d gotten into over the years, I never once thought she was actually stupid. Until now. Because I just heard her plan to lose her virginity to the biggest asshole we know.
My first thought? How the f*ck is Aoife still a virgin? The second? Over my dead body.
So I volunteered for the job instead.
It might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but once the words were out of my mouth, I couldn’t take them back. I didn’t want to. Suddenly, I couldn’t stop wondering what it would be like to kiss the pink-haired sprite I’d known my whole life, to hear her moan my name when she comes.
And she’s wondering about me too.
It was only supposed to be about sex, but now I’m in deep. I never meant to fall in love with Aoife. And what happened next? Well, neither of us planned on that.
So when Eoin overhears Aoife tell Tanya her plan to lose her virginity his reaction is one of shock. First he can’t believe she is and second it would be over his dead body if she went through with it with whom she mentions. He all but drags her out of there to talk some sense into her without others around. Love how quick his mind goes from stopping her from making a mistake to being if she wants to lose it why not with him. Now right up until that moment neither had viewed the other in a romantic or lust filled light but it seems the moment his suggestion is out there a switch gets flipped and its now all either can think about.
Aoife knows the life of a rugby player and has known Eoin forever so feels comfortable around him. If she won’t take him up on his offer then she will counter it with another. One he’s not too pleased on as it involves him helping her understand what guys really like. The thing is with this approach it needs a bit of hands on action to work and once their lips touch its like game over for anyone else. Surprisingly its Eoin who wants to see how things go with dating and its Aoife who holds back, mainly due to what her brother might think. Man up girl and go get your man, he is there for the taking and you know it will be hot. They might be young but you hope they can make the distance. She may even start to wonder if she waited subconsciously for a reason. She’s 21 and had options but none who she really wanted. Seems that’s about to change now she’s looking at Eoin in a new light.
Chemistry is off the charts but Eoin has to take things slow, something he’s learning to really like. Only problem is that she wants to keep them a secret and there’s only so many times her brother can come first in her priorities with them. They have had a friendship forever so there’s always the fear that they would lose that if something happened and then went wrong. Make up break up make up again. A bit of a pattern forming I feel. Once it’s out in the open though they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. She’s making up for lost time and can see what others have been talking about. It means more if you care about the person. But things are never that simple when life throws you a curve ball. She may think she is making the right call for everyone involved but talking is always better. She really should have said ‘was meant to be’ instead of ‘was’. He might not have gone off the deep end. Bad times but can good come out of it too?
A couple of lines that stood out for me:
My head dropped back on a suppressed wail. “Please,” I begged like a child who’d had its favourite toy taken away. “I need your cock. Like, I physically need it. My hormones are out of control.” Aoife’s frustrations spoken out loud when she doesn’t get the one thing she has been craving most, Eoin’s cock.
“You know what Eoin McGrath? You’re a hapless fucking eejit.” Couldn’t say it better myself.
Now her mother was a bit of a pain, clearly not much love there as she views Declan as the golden child, relying on him for everything. Aoife definitely takes a back seat in her views, which you do feel for her. Seems she is about to get another family with her man as he comes packing with friends a plenty and family that adore her.
His flat mates and team mates Tadhg, Donal and Fergus seemed the classic bachelor pad home. Can’t wait to see those boys get tamed. Her brother Declan and Sophie make an appearance and seem to be doing ok so yay. Her friend Tanya who people really shouldn’t judge. There’s a dark past with her and nothing is what it seems with how people perceive her to act with members of the team. Aiden is the only one who knows her and here’s hoping she can over come what happened and move forward with him. Seems the rest of our boys are all going to get their own story. Can’t wait to check them out.
