113 – Bridesmaid Lotto by Rachel Astor

I got this book via Amazon for my Kindle.  It’s a Kindle-only book and I probably got it for a few dollars if not for free.  It’s the first in the McMaster the Disaster series…though I didn’t know it at the time.  Here’s the Goodreads summary.

“Josephine McMaster is pretty and smart, but very much a klutzy mess. Finally, at 26, she may have actually lost the dreaded ‘McMaster the Disaster’ nickname that has followed her around her whole life.

Josie’s quite content to be single, much to her mother’s disappointment. So when a bizarre contest is announced where a socialite is holding a lottery to pick her bridesmaids (and rake in a little extra cash), she can’t roll her eyes fast enough, even if it does mean meeting Jake Hall, her one and only movie star crush. Obviously, Josie doesn’t enter the bridesmaid lottery, so you can imagine her surprise when her picture pops up among the winners, thanks to Mom. With a little prodding — okay bribing — Josie agrees to participate.

The wedding turns into the event of the year, and Josie finds herself in the middle of a paparazzi feeding frenzy, which gets even crazier after Jake Hall takes a special interest in her.

Can Josie handle the pressure in the spotlight? Is it possible she might really have a chance with Jake Hall? And if she’s busy worrying about all that, how in the heck is she going to keep ‘McMaster the Disaster’ from showing up in front of the entire world?”

This was a really sweet book. You can definitely tell it’s an e-book only type book. The editing wasn’t done very well at all, but it was a sweet story.

The main character, Josie, is a typical girl in her 20s trying to make it on her own. She gets caught up in all of the glitz and glamour of being a bridesmaid for a famous woman.

The main male character, Jake, is the typical hot movie star wanting to settle down.

Their chemistry and interactions are sweet. This is a witty book that will have you smiling and rooting for their love story.

I didn’t know until I was finished with this book that it’s actually part of a trilogy. I definitely plan on reading the next two as I want to know what happens with these two lovebirds!
