I'm a huge fan of Kimberly Llewellyn's first book so I assumed I'd love this book just as much. I was a bit disappointed. It was a cute story but seemed to bore me a little. I also found myself skimming over the sexual parts because of the details. Those oparts read more like a cheesy romance novel than a fun chick lit book. Maybe her next novel will border more on a chick lit than a romance.

The story of this book was interesting... To make a LONG story short, girl with big dreams, but not enough belief in herself to make them happen. Fine. I am a huge reader of chick lit. I also enjoy some steamy love scenes in my chick lit. I'm sorry, but this author wrote love scene VERY grotesquely. Instead of me thinking, "Wow! That is HOT!", I was like "EW!!!" It felt like a GYN appointment!! I mean, saying something like "He made my cervix throb" or "My groin area was swelling" is just gross. It's not sexy. Also, she made the main character, Lucy, sound like a perverted nymphomaniac. This was just yucky. The gross factor of the sexual descriptions took away from the story, which was not bad...To me, this was sort of repulsive.

Lucy Ladelle dreams of making it big - as a singing actress. To obtain her goal she needs to make some money and working for free at her mother's bridal shop just isn't providing the funds she needs to make her dreams a reality. That's why when she's hired by a matchmaking service as date bait she thinks it's the answer to her problems. Get paid to go on a few dates, get some perspective on her life and finally have enough money to make the move to New York... only things don't quite go according to plan.

Lucy realizes that her first `date' is going to go disastrously wrong when downing Pamprin and chasing it with vodka actually had some appeal. When her friend, Prada, shows up and accuses her of being a dating prostitute well, that just reinforces her thought that going on this date is a bad idea - but she doesn't let it stop her. After all it is a paying job and it's technically acting so it can't be all that bad. Things go far worse than she ever expected when her `date' turns out to be involved in a sting-operation against the iffy matchmaking firm's sneaky practices of planting potential love matches in order to lure men into renewing or joining their service. Lucy is suddenly center stage - and not in a good way! To complicate matters she's extremely attracted to the man responsible for the sting-operation - Lance Booker.

The only upside to the day is while escaping the media hounds and the humiliation, Lucy runs into a larger-than-life woman named Queendah who sees potential in her and offers her a job and the professional chance of a lifetime. Lucy's life is about to become very exciting as she struggles to maintain a new romance, her time sensitive and secretive job for Queendah and the very real possibility of having all her dreams come true?

What an entertaining read! This is the perfect feel good book. I laughed out loud too many times to count and then bought copies for my friends. The emotions were real. The characters were so varied and colorful I wanted to meet every one of them. This book strikes a balance between chick lit and contemporary romance that I wish more books would find.
