Gabriel Cormac Silas O’Sullivan is the bartender and owner of Prime. Formerly known as O’Sullivan’s, this Manhattan bar has been in his family for nearly eighty years. Though his two brothers have other careers, they assist him with the bar. Something of a Sir Galahad, Gabriel watches over his employees - especially Tessa.

Tessa Hart seems to attract trouble. When she was younger, she thought she was in love and moved in with Danny. Convinced that her future was settled, she bypassed college. She spent her time relaxing on the beach and working part-time as a bartender.  At the age of twenty-two, after a bitter breakup, she moved to Manhattan.  Having a fantastic memory for mixing drinks, she was offered a job as bartender at Prime. For the past four years, Gabe has been her lifeline, always there to help her. But she is determined to be independent and make her own way in life. Besides working for Gabe, she is attending college part-time. She never wants to be thrown out on the street again, unable to earn a living.


Now Tessa has only five days to find an apartment – something she can afford. Gabe insists she move in with him. Though she had been determined not to do that, she finally has to accept that she has no choice. However, she is determined to find a place as soon as possible. Living with Gabe and relying on him is just too tempting. Can they live together platonically – especially with the sparks flying between them? In fact, the clientele at Prime have a bet going to see how long Gabe and Tessa can live together without having sex.


I absolutely loved reading SHAKEN AND STIRRED, the first book in the Those Sexy O’Sullivan’s trilogy. The steamy sexual tension, witty banter and irresistible characters will have readers devouring this book in one sitting. Readers will find themselves caught up in the story, rooting for the characters to work out their differences. I cannot wait to read the rest of this trilogy. Be sure to add SHAKEN AND STIRRED to your ‘recommended read’ list!   Warning:   Reading this novel may leave you longing for a Gabe of your own.
