How could an adult woman NOT know her FAMOUS husband was cheating with the same woman their entire marriage? Not only that, half-raising a fricking brood? I agree with other readers that the story is not fleshed out from the very beginning. Not reading the first story, I thought Will to be a covetous and greedy jerk. Why would any woman, cancer survivor or not, just fall right in love with her husband's mistress's kids and want to be an instant mommy? Those pics the teen with the attitude set around HER house? Burned or in the garbage if they didn't disappear. Who lets most of a dead cheating husband's family move in and take over their house? Will continued to be so under-developed, I was just turned off by him and hoped she would just take her money and run.
I could not finish the book. It just dragged, revelaing more unbelievable details that were unrealistic.
Lucky Strickland didn’t know. Since she had very much wanted to have her husband Ricky’s children but couldn’t – due to cervical cancer – she was devastated. Then, shortly after, Ricky was killed when he drove into a tree. The production company for their TV reality show then sued for breach of contract. But Ricky’s lawyer brother Will has a solution – a new reality show starring Lucky with Ricky’s out-of-wedlock children.
Lucky is dead broke. Ricky left her with nothing in his will, and probate for the rest – their house, all his money, and all his personal belongings – will tie them up for months. It could even take years of the other woman and her children claim inheritance from Ricky’s estate. Still, Lucky wants no part of Will’s suggestion.
Ms Graykowski spins a very rational and realistic tale with these tangled threads without relying on odd coincidences to make it work. It is very well done. I am looking forward to the third book of this series when it becomes available.
I was drawn into the story right from the first as Lucky is sitting eating a Big Mac and fries nearly crying after discovering her prized Manolo Blahnik alligator boots had just sold on eBay for $700. Lucky is selling her priced possessions on eBay due to her dead husband's bizarre will; she only legally owned all the contents of her bedroom closet! If it wasn't insulting enough that a 1 1/2 years ago her late husband had introduced her to his mistress and three children on their reality tv show, Rock-My World!! Now her brother-in-law, Will, wants her to join him and her late husband's 3 daughters to do another reality show!
This is a funny, heart warming story that won't let you go until you finish it! So, make sure you're wearing something comfortable and have no other plans for the day before starting this novel because once you starting reading it you won't want to stop!!
He unveiled a doozie when he introduces her to his mistress and 3 daughters ranging in age from 5 to 16 on the season finale. Lucky is humiliated before the whole country and leaves. Ricky chases after her and ends up dying in an automobile accident. The girls self-centered mother also passes away from cervical cancer. She took all the money Ricky gave her and put it on maintenance for herself: spa trips, clothes, shoes, etc. After a year and a half, Will finally talks Lucky into coming back to her house and taking part in another season of the show to work off Ricky's obligation and to provide for the new family because Ricky was not very smart with his money.
She has two great friends: Charlie and Betts. Charlie's father is governor of Louisiana and Betts is a country music star. In high school they all came as Marilyn Monroe to a Halloween party and hold an annual recreation of the death of JFK with water balloons. Betts also introduces Mama into the mix. With a pink Cadillac and a party girl mentality of 15, Mama cooks and adds love that helps this new family grow and change while wearing sequins and spandex. Rock my World Too is about to provide them all financial security and lets America in to the wild ride ahead.
Will is an attorney and an agent. He has loved Lucky as long as Ricky had and dreams of the family they could have together. He is serious and has an agenda and a gavel for family meetings. They throw a party soon after to burn his gavel. Mama makes a fruit and cheese plate for the occasion. Will was not invited. Lucky and her new family are an odd twist, but Lucky has a heart as big as Texas and steps up to the plate to help Ricky's girls. This story is laugh out loud funny and a little offbeat, but a lot of fun.
