The Lady Gets Lucky by Joanna Shupe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book two in The Fifth Avenue Rebels series is even better than the first book! She brought together the two most unlikely characters from the Newport house party that set the scene for book one and not only created a mutual agreement that was guaranteed to generate chemistry she gave them an incredible HEA. I love Joanna Shupe’s books and I really hope we get more from this series as it really does seem to get better with each new book.
Wallflower heiress Alice Lusk is determined to do whatever it will take not to be forced into a marriage based on the size of her dowry. In an act of either desperation or genius- or maybe a little of both- she makes a deal with a well-known rogue who she is certain can teach her the skills she will need to seduce the type of husband she desires. All she needs to do to convince him to teach her is tap into her hidden talent for cooking and the training she has been secretly receiving from her family’s hotel chef, and not get caught by her mother.
Determined to make something for himself beyond his notorious “party- boy” reputation, Kit Ward is banking on the successful grand opening of his supper club to do just that. The only thing he is missing is a top-notch chef of highest renown to draw in the cream of the crop clientele he is aiming for. The last person he expected to find the help he needed from is the shy, over protected, wallflower Alice Lusk, who has a crazy idea for him to give her lessons in how to attract a man. Who knew she would prove to be not only great in the kitchen but equally as talented in her studies of invoking passion in men?
I enjoyed this book so much and can’t wait to read book number 3!!!
