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.
This was such a fun read! I really enjoyed all of it.
What woman doesn't have insecurities about herself, especially after a heartbreak? I loved how Jess worked through them and was brave enough to learn to love again even though it meant that she might very well get her heart trampled again.
I loved all the quirky references to Chicky Dee and her Penguin Spy Man and laughed numerous times through out the book.
I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good contemporary romance/chick lit and wants to be that "Lucky Girl".
