My Review: This was a fun and entertaining afternoon read. I enjoyed getting to know Jess and the very-sexy Nick. I loved Jess and her attitude. She is getting her first vacation after 2 years and has just broken off her engagement 4 months ago after finding her fiance cheating on her. This vacation leads her to England where the majority of her family is located to attend a wedding. Her goal is to be single, engaging, and to have a fabulous time on her vacation. So she adopts a Goddess attitude and ropes her two cousins, Elizabeth and Anna, into her Goddess plan and they all three set out to have a fabulous two weeks. At the wedding, she quickly runs into Nick, a gorgeous man that she remembers from her Grandfather's funeral 2 years ago. He was the one who gave her a shoulder to cry on and helped her through her mourning at that awful time. He is a gorgeous, hunky guy and reminds her of Pierce Brosnan as 007 so she calls him Spy Guy. Every girl can see that Nick is a catch so Jess has issues maintaining her Goddess facade in the face of such incredible competition. It's fun and quirky and provided more than a few embarrassing moments which were enough that I would have to put the book down in mortification every once in a while. LOL! It's very Bridget Jones-esque. The things I loved: *English setting--love the ambiance that England provides, esp the Pubs *The Goddess moments-- I loved how Jess would prop herself with her Goddess attitude! *Elizabeth & Anna-- such fabulous partners-in-crime for Jess. These are the kinds of gal-pals that we all wish that we had *O Tart magazine-- I loved Anna's job. so fun! *Spy Guy/Girl secret notes-- just too sweet *Nick (sigh) The things I didn't love: *Chicky Dee & Plucky Penguin-- while I loved the spy guy/spy girl moments, I thought this little addition took the cuteness factor too far over the top. *the binge drinking that seemed to happen every single night...just too much. *Nick & Jess hook-up took too long esp. in a 2 week vacation. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was quirky. It was fun. It made me homesick for England (I was lucky enough to live there for 2 years.) Just a really entertaining read!
I enjoyed everything about this story. Well written and engaging I was invested in the characters from the start. A trip to England, a wedding and a hot guy and a whole lot of romantic fun.
Most of this book was amazing and I loved a lot of Jess’s internal dialogue. Her attitude and spunk were irresistible and Nick was a sexy and yet tender counterpart to her awkwardness. The tenderness between these two characters was obvious, while the sexual tension was so palpable I felt I could reach out a hand and stroke it. For me, Jess sometimes went into a somewhat whining internal dialoguing that had me rolling my eyes, but other readers might not notice it since she was such a fun character altogether.

Review by Jen: After reading the book and sitting on the review for well over a week, I'm still at odds at how I really felt about Lucky Girl. The book had it's moments. I found myself laughing out loud at some of Jess' antics and cared enough about Nick and Jess that I teared up at one point. But at the same time, Nick just seemed too good to be true and Jess just seemed to rub me the wrong way. I would have loved to have gotten to know and understand Nick better. I never really understood what it was that drew him to Jess, because in their first couple meetings Jess was not at her best. I did like that Jess was a normal girl with the same insecurities, crushes, dreams that every girl has. However, Jess just was a little over the top for my tastes and again, I couldn't quite figure out Nick and Jess' relationship. In the end, I was just missing something in the story for me.
