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.
Lucky deserved a better life then she was living, after everything that Ricky put her through. She just needed to work on her grief before she found the strength to move on with her life. The children falling right in line with being a family was a little far fetched on one hand, but considering they didn't have a fantasy childhood it was easy to see where they would love the attention they were finally receiving.
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!!
Interesting storyline that is somewhat realistic. Believable characters with distinct personalities and dialogue that is both thought-provoking and snarky.
No desire to re-read this story. I am interested in other works by this author.
This story is quirky, humorous fun. A fun read that takes you into the life of Lucky who has hit rock bottom. She had been there before, so she was ready for the fight, what she wasn't ready for was her dead cheating husband's brother and said dead husband's three girls. Not to mention the help of her best friend's mother. Oh my goodnesss, Mama is a hoot. I have to say she is my favorite character.
The heat level on this book is mild and if you're looking for a real angsty story this isn't it. It's enjoyable for what it is. And, sometimes I just need a light, fun read in between the heavier more intense books I love.
Getting lucky is book 2 in this series, I didn't realize that and haven't read book 1. However, I do believe I will at some point -- lots of books on the TBR. I would recommend reading book 1, Place Your Betts, but I don't feel that it is necessary to enjoy this book. There is a third Marylyn, Charlie, and I hope the author plans to write her story soon.
