Review: Feeling Lucky by Kathy Bryson

feelinglucky Synopsis:
So, Megan O’Malley gave in to drunken temptation and pinched a cute guy’s ass at her cousin’s wedding. Who’d have thought a perfectly normal guy—okay, a bit short—was a leprechaun or that he’d have such a bad attitude about giving away his money?! Now that she’s captured him, Megan may be five million dollars richer, but she’s also got an angry leprechaun camped out on her sofa, doing his best to prevent her from becoming the business mogul of her dreams!

Fergus O’Reilly cannot figure out what he’s done to upset the Queen of the Fairies. He was working hard to rebuild his family’s honor when he took one small break to help friends play a wedding. Then some drunken lady pinched his ass, the Queen declared him caught, and now he’s broke, homeless, and hustling to stop the lovely lady with the wandering fingers from spending his money! This would be so much easier if she wasn’t cute and caring and determined to help with his so-called money addiction!


I went out of my PNR comfort zone to read this book, usually it’s vampires and witches that strike my interest but when I read that leprechauns were involved I was intrigued.  This story was a modern take on some aspects of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream.  There is some romance but more than anything the entire book revolved around what to do or not to do with the money Megan acquired from pinching Fergus’ ass and him trying to trick her into releasing the money back to him. The tale was cute and had some humorous parts – mostly involving Fergus trying to get his money back.  The scenes between Fergus and Megan were my favorite; I just wish there had been more romance and interaction between them.  The story is chock full of leprechauns and fairies, you’d expect a lot of magic involved but there isn’t; the magical creatures are mostly humanized with “fae” quirks.  There are no magical rainbows, pots of gold, or fairy dust in this story but it was definitely a quick humorous read.  So leave all of your preconceived notions about the fae world at the door when you open this book and you will enjoy it.  I just had to find out if Megan and Fergus get their HEA and who gets the money!
