My review cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed: http://www.joyfullyreviewed.com/reviews/Jan10/irishsexfairy.KJ.html
Sex is the cure for a great many of your problems. At least that’s what Keara’s great-aunt Maeve, owner of the sex toy shop, The Irish Sex Fairy Shop, believes. Keara’s not so sure about her aunt’s wisdom, but after being held hostage at gunpoint during a robbery, Keara needs to escape her life in L.A. and spend a few weeks in the quiet town of Kilkenny with her unconventional aunt. Stressed out and suffering from a constant battery of nightmares and flashbacks, Keara’s willing to try anything to find peace once more. When Shane, deputy police chief of Kilkenny and Keara’s old flame, walks into Maeve’s store and back into Keara’s life, she wonders if maybe her aunt’s advice is worth taking after all. But Keara finds it hard to keep things simply sexual with Shane. The problem is, Keara’s life is in L.A.; so how can she stay in Kilkenny with Shane?
What I wouldn’t give to live in the charming, Ireland-inspired town of Kilkenny Kelly Jamieson brought to life in Irish Sex Fairy. I admit, the town felt so idyllic I fell in love with it every bit as much as I did the story’s characters. From Keara to Shane to Maeve and more, each person in Irish Sex Fairy came alive on the page for me, which is why I enjoyed the story so much. I wasn’t able to stop reading the book once I started because I liked each character so much and wanted to see how events would turn out with them. Of course, it would be remiss of me to write about a book called Irish Sex Fairy without mentioning, well, the sex. Ms. Jamieson certainly knows how to heat up the page, blending eroticism with tenderness in ways that made me sigh and – if I may be honest – envy Keara.
Irish Sex Fairy is everything its title suggests and more. It’s warm, sexy, and fun, but it also deals with the fallout Keara must deal cope with after a trauma such as the one she experienced. In the end, the most I can say is that I absolutely loved Irish Sex Fairy and will definitely be reading more of Ms. Jamieson’s work!
