Short Review: Getting Lucky in Galway by Allie Standifer


[img_reflect_left src=””] Erotic Escapes, Book Five

Calder loves Galway, but one local seems determined to drive her crazy. Every female cat shifter worth her whiskers knows it’s the chase that leads to the best mates. But Calder’s not certain she wants to be caught.

Roark’s been told love is grand, love is all a man needs to find happiness. Personally he’d rather live his immortal life as a pleasure-seeking, trouble-stirring leprechaun. He’s doing just that until fate steps in and everything changes.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Elloras Cave. Review e-copy provided by Elloras Cave.






Getting Lucky in Galway by Allie Standifer is actually a fun and hot story to read. Most of the small paranormal erotica novellas are quick with the (bed) action and a little less of the world building and characters. Allie proofs it don’t always have to be that way. Getting Lucky in Galway has a good intro with a story that has a natural flow without being to cramped or to fast. I really liked the main character Calder. Calder is a kick-ass lady with a crazy (fortune telling) aunt that sets her of on a journey to England/scotland. And right there in a bar she finds the man she really was not expecting and certainly not wishing for “her mate”.

But one problem Calder is a Cat shifter with needs and Roark is not the mate she was hoping for. No he’s no shifter but a leprechaun 🙂

Really nice touch! I onastly have to say that of all the books I have read and reviews. I have never read a story about a sexy leprechaun. Together with Roarks house “thing/goblin” (something that came out of a Harry Potter movie) they make some fine characters to read and laugh about! Funny story with sexy hot scenes.

enjoyed it!

About Allie Standifer

Allie Standifer lived in various countries around the world. The gift of travel has enabled her to accurately describe the scent, feel of far-off places and feed her overactive imagination.

Her life has been one of constant adventure ever since. From growing up in Saudi Arabia where her brother tried to sell her to Bedouins (for what amounts to less than $1.50), it’s been non stop. And she loves every minute of it.

Ideas, plots, characters and conversations keep her company from inside her head and fuel her need to write. And no, they don’t tell her to start fires. =) Tired of everyday stories, Allie’s tales have a decidedly paranormal twist to them. They’re filled with past lives, chain e-mail sending oracles, mythical creatures, magic, sexy gods, and heroines who know exactly what they want and aren’t afraid to get it.

Any free time is spent spoiling two nieces and two nephews, pumping them up on sugar, caffeine and buying very loud toys then sending them back to their parents. The perfect revenge for all the slights of being the youngest child.

When not writing or contributing to the delinquency of minors, Allie enjoys anything to do with the ocean, reading, trying to outsmart her psycho cat and spending time with her wonderful and supportive family.
