Since the beginning of his senior year in college, Jimmy has lived above the very popular Irish Pub O’Dwyer’s. Sure, the music is loud and the co-eds constantly party, but the bonus is seeing graduate student Niall come in and out of work on a daily basis. Working separate shifts hasn’t given the two much time to get to know one another. So it’s quite a shock when Niall comes pounding on his door on St. Patrick’s Day asking for help working at the pub on the busiest day of the year. Even though Jimmy just finished with his own shift, being next to Niall for the night is too tempting to resist. Will sparks finally ignite? And will Jimmy find himself having a little luck of the Irish to finally make Niall notice him?
Jimmy is a busy lad – he studies hard to get a B average, he plays intramural soccer and he works part time in the bar, where he lives, to help pay for his expenses. He really didn’t need the complication from being with someone like Niall O’Dwyer, the nephew of the bar owner, where Jimmy lives and works. Getting called in to work extra shifts, by Niall, on St. Patricks day meant that Jimmy had to wear a green shirt and the poor man already knew he would look really bad in green. Which was a real shame because Jimmy had been harboring a crush on Niall for the longest time.
Jimmy looked down at his red shirt. Okay, he would change it to black, but he looked like shit in green. It always washed him out or made him look sickly and he was just vain enough to care. He wasn’t going to say anything to Niall about that though, considering Niall looked absolutely mountable in his tight green t-shirt.
Just loved that term “absolutely mountable.” The book is sweetly written as the two men bumble their way towards each other. Jimmy is busy with school, work and soccer, Niall has got his graduate studies and work to do as well. But when they do hit if off together, well Ms. Nacht is awesome at cranking up the heat.
There really isn’t a lot else to this story and I was sorry it was so short. I would have liked to have seen if Casey finally got together with Vin, and how Jimmy and Niall coped after the morning after. But if you are into short, sweet with a hot explosion at the end, then pick this book up to read in your lunch hour. It will send you back to work with a smile on your face.
Meet the Author
Short, sexy and sweet—where a little love goes a long way.
That’s the best way to describe Jackie Nacht’s stories. I was introduced to M/M Romance through my sister, Stephani, and read it for years. Then, I thought it was time to put my own stories on paper. I began writing short and sweet stories that ended with a happily ever after…and sometimes more than one, in the case of my YA Fork in the Road series, which has interactive endings.
Thinking back to my own book addiction, where there were many nights I stayed up way too late so I could read just one more chapter—yeah, right—I decided to write short romances for young adults as well as adults. Hopefully, they will give high school and college students, or working men and women something they can read during their lunch hour, in between classes or just when they want to briefly get away from the daily stresses of everyday life.
