Sex In The City fans will enjoy the NY references and are sure to connect with Penelope. And who doesn't love a man who can cook and who rides a Harley? Expect some swoon-worthy moments and a couple of sexy scenes that will turn the heat up a notch. But all in all, even for a prudish reader like me, the scenes fit the story and don't take away from the plot (as in, they're not there just to add a few more pages to the novel so it's longer. They are carefully woven into the story, so that they end up being the 4th of July fireworks in their insta-chemistry kind of relationship).
The story is very well thought out and developed and, even though I sort of knew all along that eventually, Penelope's ruse would come out at the worst of times and quite possibly in the worst of ways, I still held my breath all the way until the moment of truth. Things between them did progress quickly, but it just couldn't have happened in any other way. Their two personalities required an insta-lust, quickly turning into love, kind of story. Lots of pining for the other, or waiting for the other to make the first move, just wouldn't have worked for those two. :)
I laughed and swooned, and then laughed some more. At times I wanted to be Penelope and Sebastian's friend. Sebastian is the perfect BFF and a very enjoyable side character. I hope we'll get to see more of him in the next books.
I reached the last page wanting, scratch that, needing to read more of Penelope and Jonathan's story - I actually contacted the author to say just that. :)
Warning: There are some f* bombs here and there and, like I said, a couple of sexy scenes, but even if you prefer books on the cleaner side (like me), you shouldn't let this discourage you. This book is definitely worth your time, and it's a perfect weekend read if you need to get away from everyday problems, work-related stress, and just need a good laugh.
One of my favorite lines? "I was as nervous as a Black Angus cow at a beef factory." This just made me laugh out loud. :)
And let me just say - Joslyn Westbrook did NOT disappoint. Everything about The Fifty-Two Week Chronicles (thanks, phone, LOL) is delectable. From Penelope and Sebastian's friendship to Penelope and Jonathan's whirlwind love story.
Westbrook has an effortless way of writing. It's both light and airy with a dash of snark to make things spicy. From the very first page, I was hooked. And, as a foodie myself, I loved all of the cooking/food descriptions. Pretty much, this book made me 1) hungry, 2) laugh out loud, 3) squeal a little bit because Jonathan is Class A swoon-worthy, and 4) upset...because now I have to wait until the Fall for Book 2!!
Joslyn, if you see this review - great job on making this romantic comedy burst with flavor and spice. It's everything I wanted this book to be since I first read a preview some months ago, and I can't wait for the sequel!!
