I cannot see how he would even look twice at the character in the book. I don't even think Jim 'Anything In A Skirt' Kirk would have bothered.
That's exactly what she was like in "This Side of Paradise", so any complaints you have (which I agree with) should be against the writers of that episode. Which is why she never seemed like a good match for Spock,IMO. Who knows, if she had been someone like Amanda or Perin, someone able to understand Vulcans and read their emotions, it might have worked. Leila seemed to want Spock to always be the way he was when he was under the influence of spores.
Treason, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
