Review: Alert! We have extra-speshulness in the form of a gurl whom was farted out of the Blarney Stone so hard she hit her Stonehenge on a leprechaun’s butt. Also, we have insta-love in the form of a hairy/disheveled Irishman with twinkling/gorgeous/emerald green eyes that smells of leather and soap that sends sparks up her spine. Forget that she is 16 and is turned on by soap and leather. If she is not huff, huffed or huffing along with a stupid cat she is in a constant state of being a B. 

I get that there is an audience for this crap but to suffer poor character development for the sake of horny teens everywhere is untenable. Just write the shjt better so everyone can be involved in the storyline. Why trample it with scene expediters like huffed (40x) or shivered (13x). And drop the friggin’ insta love crap and the sniffing of body parts. You render your main characters akin to two dogs at each others butts.
