Book Summary:
Jessica Devlin isn't looking for love. Heartbroken after being dumped by her unfaithful ex-fiancé, she's determined to have a fabulous time during her vacation in England where she'll be maid-of-honor at her cousin's wedding. After working overtime as beauty editor of Orlando's O Tart magazine, avoiding dating, and putting on ten pounds, Jess is ready to toss her past like an empty lipstick tube and party like a single gal.

But when she steps into the church on her cousin's wedding day, she sees the one man who could sabotage her plan-James-Bond-gorgeous Nick Mondinello. She's never forgotten the London marketing exec who held her in his arms after her beloved grandfather's funeral two years ago. Ambitious, and lusted after by women everywhere, Nick is completely wrong for guarded, Plain Jane Jess.

Could Spy Man Nick ever fall for her? Nope. Not unless Jess is one lucky girl.

Sherri’s Review:
Jessica Devlin is a beauty editor for O Tart magazine in Orlando. She has recently broken off her engagement, been working way too hard and is in desperate need of her upcoming vacation to London to attend her cousin’s wedding.

Both Jessica and Nick Mondinello are solid characters. Jessica is fun, flirty and for the most part confident in our dealings with the world. What she hides though are huge insecurities about her weight and her sex life, all the courtesy of her cheating ex-fiancé. Nick Mondinello is known as a playboy, but his actions really didn’t support that premise to me. Nick came across warm and friendly, but more in a caring sort of way. I didn’t really buy his playboy description.

Lucky Girl is a story that highlights the close ties between family and friends. I particularly enjoyed the interaction between Jess and her cousins. Jess is a good friend to her cousins and you can tell that she cares about them.

Overall, I enjoyed Lucky Girl. It was a quick easy read that was fun and flirty with some light funny moments woven into the story. That Jess was able to have the HEA after suffering through her rotten ex-fiancé will warm all our romantic hearts. I will definitely be adding Cate Lord to my author list and will be looking forward to her future works.
