Lucky Me - #LuckyMeBlogTour Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

For eighteen year old Gia Winters, having a movie star for a father, a former Playboy bunny as a mother, a Hollywood mansion, and a closet stocked with Chanel is simply another day in the life.

But her world is turned upside down when her father mysteriously hires a group of bodyguards to trail the family 24/7 and threatening phone calls from a “Dr. D” start buzzing daily.

When Gia scores the coveted role of Miss Golden Globe, she is forced to strike a deal with her bodyguard, Jack, who is almost as arrogant as he is attractive. Juggling Gia’s romantic failures, fashion faux pas, and celebrity obsessions, the duo investigate a series of clues with the help of a police cadet, who has a special set of skills and an even better set of dimples.

But with the Golden Globes just around the corner, danger levels rise higher than her stilettos as Gia learns that the biggest secrets might be the ones buried in her own home.

In a place where the hills have eyes, high school nemeses, bad hair days, raging parties, and stolen kisses, there can only be trouble for a girl who was just starting to consider herself lucky.

My Review:

As a debut novel, author Saba Kapur has done a fantastic job of creating characters and storylines that are interesting and captivating.  Told in first-person form, Lucky Me is a story of a rich girl who doesn't have a care in the world (other than what she's going to wear to school).  Gia is both confident and cocky, with an aura of arrogance.  Things are going good for her, until her father hires individual bodyguards for herself, her brother, and the father.  Gia doesn't particularly like the idea, but the bodyguard is easy on the eyes. 

When Gia is chosen as Miss Golden Globe, things start to go haywire.  And so do her feelings.  Just like you'd imagine with a teenage girl, she's full of drama and attitude.  And she's got people out to get her.

The fast pace of this book is perfect.  I didn't feel like it lagged anywhere.  The writing was told in a way that resonates how an eighteen year old girl would most likely sound like.  There's not a lot of fancy adjectives or formalities.  This is a feel-good, fun book written with a light air and a lot of humorous candor.  I'd categorize Lucky You as gratifying chick lit. 

author, Saba Kapur
