Book 3 of Lucky in Love Series At first, I wasn’t sure what to make of this book. I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Buuuut, we all do. I’ve recently read a number of books with the cartoony cover–they were bad. I had very low expectations. I also kept putting off…
Mauve was living the dream–great job, terrific fiance, soon to be husband, terrific condo. All of it came crashing down. First she lost her job. Then she was stood up at the alter. Why stay at a place with the man who didn’t bother to show up at his own wedding!? What’s a girl to do? Go home to your momma. Mommas always make everything better. That’s what Mauve did. She decided she would spend a bit of time with her family before deciding her next step in putting her life back together.
Mauve and her friend Corrie along with Mandy, Mauve’s childhood best friend decided the first thing to do is go shopping. Buy clothes that are not safe. Not plain. Not boring. Her outfit turns heads. Why wouldn’t a leather mini skirt, leather peep toe booties with a Pink Floyd shirt gain the attention of every man in the bar even Mauve’s high school sweetheart, Blake Taylor. Blake broke her heart when she was 18 by sleeping with another girl. Blake has changed. He’s not longer scrawny. He’s built with a sexy as sin beard.
I loved Brent and Audrey in Book 1. I was looking forward to reading this latest installment from the series. Of course with the reappearance of Area 51 at the most inopportune moments–meeting Brent’s super conservative aunt with young twins! Audrey’s dress is lost in the mail…oh and Brent hurts himself simply skating at his childhood home. How can we forget the bachelorette party that Lainey planned which didn’t end until after 6 am the next day.
Whitney Wheeler has been dreaming about and planning her wedding since her grandmother gave her a wedding scrapbook as a teen. Well, the thing with well laid plans…they never–I mean ever work out. With Whitney, it came in the form of walking into her McMansion that she shared with her fiance, finding his secretary servicing her soon-to-be husband. Instead of discussing the situation, Whitney goes on a road trip with Lucas DeCosta, her high school crush that she reconnected with the previous night at the local strip club…where he was working. Her friends paid him to give her special attention…on stage in front of the entire club. The real problem is the electric current that runs through her veins every time Lucas touches her. Why can’t Trenton stop calling and texting me? Do I still love Trenton? Did I ever really love him?
