Blurb: 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?
Review: I really enjoy this series and was lucky enough to be able to tell Jackie that personally last year at GRL. I have a really long commute to work and at the end of the day, usually my blood pressure is up and sometimes I can be in a rather foul mood. That’s when I like to break out these stories so that I can be in a better mood by the time I get home.
Jimmy is a college senior, and through a housing screw up, he kind of lucks into a job and a place to live above O’Dwyer’s pub. He also gets to see Niall, the handsome nephew of the owner, and he quickly develops a crush. On St. Patrick’s Day, Jimmy and Niall work long shifts together and something changes between them.
Niall decides that he’d like to get to know Jimmy better, so he seeks him out and they start dating. Niall is in graduate school so their schedules don’t match up too well, but they do their best to work around that. Luckily, Uncle Angus helps too. :)
All of the stories in this series are in the setting of this college, and they all intertwine in some way. In each short story, we get to meet the young men who are looking for love and making their way into adulthood. Each story has a happy ending. But I Look Terrible in Green is recommended especially for those times when life is rough and a little sweetness can make things better.
