Three men and a leprechaun? When Dermot, Greg and Zev meet at the wedding of a past lover, the little green guy offers each man a golden opportunity to possess his greatest desire. Unfortunately, figuring out what that greatest desire amounts to isn't as easy as it sounds.
Greg Tennerson figures the leprechaun was just an elaborate prank, but quickly changes his mind when he wakes up with Vivian in his bed. She’s gorgeous. She’s sexy. She’s very much naked. In fact, she’s Greg’s vision of absolute female perfection. She’s also more than willing to satisfy his every physical desire. Anything he wants. Any time he wants. As often as he wants. It’s a fantasy come true for this successful attorney with his heart set on a career in politics…but there’s a catch.
Vivian will only have sex with him in public. And only if there’s danger of getting caught!
When you catch a leprechaun, be very careful what you ask for. You just may get way more than you bargain for. Just ask Greg Tenneson. When he wakes up with a voluptuous, sexy woman in his bed, he thinks he has what he has always desired. She is willing to fulfill his every desire, no matter what. The catch? She says his heart’s desire is to have sex, lots of it, but only in public. Since Greg has his eyes on a career in politics, this could be disastrous. After the novelty wears off, Greg can’t get Vivian out of his life. When he meets Kimberly, things really get interesting. Can Greg end up with his true heart’s desire? Will it be Vivian or Kimberly? And will he recognize it in time?
This is another really enjoyable book. The Public Eye has believable characters, people you recognize as someone you might know. Greg is a realist. He is the strong handsome guy you all have seen around. It takes him a while to come around to the idea that the leprechaun was real, not just an elaborate set up. Vivian is every man’s dream; sexy and willing to do anything he wants. It is a tribute to Greg’s character that, after the initial novelty of getting what he wants, it wears thin quickly. I loved the lengths Greg went to in order to try and end his time with Vivian once he met Kimberly.
Kimberly is the shy girl-next-door, a little insecure but very attractive in her own right. When she and Greg keep bumping into other, you start to realize there is something working behind the scenes. This has several delicious twists and turns before Greg and Kimberly get to their happy ever after, but yes, they do get there. This is a book that will make you laugh out loud, for all of the right reasons.
