Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy
Series: The Marylyns
This story is quirky, humorous fun. A fun read that takes you into the life of Lucky who has hit rock bottom. She had been there before, so she was ready for the fight, what she wasn't ready for was her dead cheating husband's brother and said dead husband's three girls. Not to mention the help of her best friend's mother. Oh my goodnesss, Mama is a hoot. I have to say she is my favorite character.
The heat level on this book is mild and if you're looking for a real angsty story this isn't it. It's enjoyable for what it is. And, sometimes I just need a light, fun read in between the heavier more intense books I love.
Getting lucky is book 2 in this series, I didn't realize that and haven't read book 1. However, I do believe I will at some point -- lots of books on the TBR. I would recommend reading book 1, Place Your Betts, but I don't feel that it is necessary to enjoy this book. There is a third Marylyn, Charlie, and I hope the author plans to write her story soon.
