"The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky is the Cupcake Wars meets The Bloggess. Readers who love hilarious, bawdy humor with a heaping dose of swoon will adore Summer Heacock's special debut!" -Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake and The Simplicity of Cider
"Reading The Awkward Path To Getting Lucky is like hanging out with your smartest, funniest, most thoughtful and all-round favorite girlfriend. If you're the kind of intelligent, complicated woman who Leans In at work but watches The Bachelor at home, who does yoga Saturday morning and drinks margaritas Saturday night, who can stand on her own but still wants to be swept off her feet, then this is the comfort read for you." -Gemma Burgess, author of the Brooklyn Girls series
"Lighthearted and entertaining, Summer Heacock's debut, The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky, is full of voice and a cast of characters that are side-splitting funny. Between the shenanigans and drool-worthy cupcake descriptions is a modern day exploration of one woman's quest for happily ever after. -- Karma Brown, bestselling author of Come Away with Me and The Choices We Make
"Chock-full of hysterical one-liners and strings of profanity, the novel will make readers want to slap the protagonist upside the head with a glitter brush in order for her to come to her senses. A delicious summer treat with just enough sass, sex, and edible glitter." -Library Journal
"Undoubtedly memorable, hilariously quirky and surprisingly relatable... Get lucky by making this one-of-a-kind novel part of your summer reading list!" -RT Book Reviews, Top Pick!

Throughout, this was a laugh out loud read with a cast of characters I wanted to spend more time with. Too much fun!!
I definitely will be recommending this book. My book club picked this for our monthly read, cant wait to start discussing it!
The Awkward Path to getting Lucky was well, awkward. Trust me I get awkward in all it's glory, I actually relate to it incredibly well when I am introduced to awkwardly endearing characters who stumble through life as if they were walking through a construction zone in wedge heels while hustling for a waiting bus. This is the nuance: awkwardly endearing or awkwardly abrasive. There is a subtlety that must be fine tuned to prevent a character developing towards the latter. Kat the main character was awkwardly abrasive and gauche.
As stated in the blurb Kat has been diagnosed with an unusual ailment: 'vaginismus, a muscular condition that can make sex physically impossible.'. After 2 years of dealing with this she takes the bull by the horns and decides to find a cure. All done humorously, in satire of course. Whelp, I didn't love it, or like it even. I get her concern over her vagina, but why was everyone else as equally enthralled and captivated by its activities? Kat's personality was self-serving, she lacked a filter or an interesting personality. She tried to redeem herself, but my mind was made up about her by the time she became contrite.
As the owner of a cupcake shop, where most of the books setting took place, I thought perhaps this would be a fun diversion from her over the top 'therapy shenanigans'. Unfortunately it was more conversations of the same with added cupcake talk. (Yawn) I did enjoy her fellow coworkers though!
Ben, her love interest, or whatever it is you want to call the poor bloke was pretty incredibly sweet. I didn't get why he put up with what he did. I just didn't get it. I still don't get it. I didn't find it funny making him uncomfortable constantly. My mind kept subliminally sending Ben the message to run and leave this annoying woman and her over discussed vagina alone! 2 stars.
