Let me admit it up front: Plus One is a Lucky Number is my kind of book. You aren't supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I did. By that, and its genre. I love chick lit and this one promised a feel-good factor that it defo delivered. I like the world, I like the characters, I like the concept, and I like the fact that its a page-turner. Sophie, our heroine, makes it a point never to hide behind her feminine charms. She works hard not to be the girly-girl in a sea of men in her high-powered career. For her, work is what's important. It's where she puts her energy and attention after a painful love affair with a womanizing jerk. That survival skill causes a lot of conflict when her presence is required at a forthcoming family wedding. Single Sophie is destined to be the third wheen with no plus one. In a move that calls to mind the film "The Wedding Date," she invites Adam a friend of her work friend James's as her fake boyfriend. Little does she know, Adam has a secret crush on our buttoned-up girl! As any fan of chick lit will tell you, all will not end well, and frankly, we don't want it to! Adam is a bottle. A true "dude" who pulls away from commitment, he's the kind of distant bad-boy we know we shouldn't like, but we do. Clueless about his own emotions (like so many boys!) his fawning and protective manner towards Sophie is kind of brotherly, kind of not. We, the readers, get to see what's going on long before the characters allow it to sink in themselves, and we find ourselves shouting at the pages (or maybe that's just me). One of my fave things in a book is building sexual tension and the banter that goes along with it. The relief and thrill when the characters finally get it together is what I adore when relaxing in the tub, reading over a cup of coffee, or winding down in bed before sleep. This book delivered! Perhaps it didn't rewrite the canon of literature, but that's not what I was looking for. There's a reason I choose this type of book, and this book gave me what I was looking for. Fun, romance, tension, some zaniness, and the ultimate ending. If you're like me, and you love a good rom com film or book, I'd say grab this and settle down for some "me" time. flag
