I like Lux and she is definitely not the typical heroine. She is awkward, clumsy and socially inept. However she has this need to be loved and I believe everyone can identify with that. I thought Jude was an A-hole and that Tessa was perfect for him until his grand gesture. We are all waiting on that grand gesture for them to show us he/she cares.

I've read almost all of Amity Cross' books and L is for Luminous was a little bit sweeter and gentler romance than I typically expect this author. It was a nice surprise and I thought it was an fun book.

Lux has spent her life surviving - not from anything dark or sinister but more so from being completely alone in the world. She does this by dreaming about adventures and happily ever afters for her book characters - mostly because she has given up on any hope of these things for herself.

So it was almost unbelievable to Lux that karma or serendipity was finally stepping in and giving her whole life changes for the better. Most of her good fortune was thanks to Jude Atwood - a Hollywood actor who sets into motion all of the amazing opportunities that Lux richly deserved to befall on her. She's stronger and more worthy of a brighter future than she realizes.

These two share a connection and a strong attraction for one another but their timing rarely seems right. Normally I prefer the male lead to the female but with this book it was the complete opposite. Some of Jude's behavior really annoyed me - I kept hoping that he would either get himself together or someone else would show up and sweep Lux off of her feet. But in the end, I understood why Lux just couldn't give up on Jude and he won me over.

Regardless, I found myself cheering Lux on. I really liked her and I would definitely recommend you meet her, read about her life and experience her journey for yourself. One click this book today!

I am an Amity Cross fan and I make no bones about that but I am an honest reviewer and I have to say that while I honestly enjoyed this book it is not my favourite of her works.
I found the scenario easy to get my head around but was distracted somewhat by trying to work out what might if anything be based on real life…I know sad but it was an “I wonder?” moment and I suppose that is my fault for allowing myself to get distracted.
I soon reigned myself in though once the plot started to come to life and boy, did come to life.
In true Amity Cross style she lined up the pins for a perfect plot and knocked each and every one of them down with her own inimitable flare!
Lux is our leading lady and as expected she is a complex but colourful character. She isn’t without the prerequisite baggage but it isn’t until she meets Jude that her life changes completely.
The story is one that will test your fortitude, there are characters that you will both love and hate in equal measure but if you are anything like me you will grow to love and admire Lux.
She takes life in her stride so to speak but that is not to say that there won’t be times when you will hang you head and wonder what the heck she is up too. She was a bit of a conundrum sometimes but I think overall she just about kept me rooting for her.
So summing up how I feel, I will say that Amity dished up a book that I really hadn’t expected and showed me that my expectations are always going to be blown away when I read and Amity Cross novel!

I've read a lot of stories by Amity Cross; she's a writer who's not afraid to step outside the box and craft HER tale how she wants and with the type of characters and darkness that she wants to deliver to her readers, and I've thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them.

With L is for Luminous, Cross steps even further outside the box, especially her own, and writes a story that is just as soul searching as her others, but in a much different way. Lux’s story is not as dark or erotic as other Cross stories; it’s more about illustrating how someone who is ordinary can grow to be extraordinary…it’s about feeling comfortable enough to be one’s dorky, nerdy, and awkward self without worrying about judgment. It’s about learning to matter to oneself before being able to matter to anyone else.

Lux's story is definitely going to resonate with a lot of readers; her personal and professional struggles, as well as her low self-esteem and lack of confidence, are ones that a lot of young women go through, so many readers will feel like Amity Cross is exposing their lives and giving them the strength and courage to see their differences as outstanding qualities that will make them shine! Lux is an every women kind of character; she’s quirky and feels more comfortable in her fictitious worlds, and she wants what every single woman wants – to matter…to be loved, and so far, that hasn’t happened for her and she feels quite forgettable.

There’s a definite love story in L is for Luminous; in fact, I would argue there are two, and in my opinion, one is way more important than the other. Throughout the course of the story, Lux learns to accept herself, quirks and all, and she grows into her talent and becomes more confident in her abilities.
