Five Angels for IRISH EYES!

Five Angels from Fallen Angel Reviews!!

Irish Eyes
Irish Eyes by Rusty Wicks is a delightful romp, a fun and sexy Irish story that’s filled with charming ghosts, handsome men and smart, spirited women.

Maddy is sent to Ireland on business, and rents the perfect little cottage to stay in while she’s there. She travels around the world, researching old architectural sites, and there is a castle that she’s meant to investigate. As she’s just been jilted by her boyfriend, she’s ready for a change. In Ireland she meets a sexy taxi driver, Shamus, who has some secrets he’s keeping to himself, a handsome neighbor, Brian, whose mother and sisters charm Maddy right away, and a dream lover, one who makes Maddy’s body throb every night she’s in the cottage.

The characters in this story are believable, and likeable—every one of them. I particularly enjoy the fact that Maddy knows her own mind and is open to exploring life after the boyfriend with more than one man. Despite her bad experience, she is open to love and that makes her a sympathetic, smart character. The men are both dreamy, as well. The plot moves along at a fast pace. The landscape, castle and details, like the pub and food, are so well detailed that I felt I could see everything. The storytelling is clever, both in content and execution. Part of this story is told through daily letters to Maddy’s sister, and it is through these that we get to really feel the dynamic of the two sisters, as well as learn what Maddy really feels about each man. I liked it; I felt like I was reading privileged information!

I enjoyed every minute of Irish Eyes by Rusty Wicks. It is pure fun—with an amazing twist at the end!
