Book Review: Beautiful Mess

This is about Beautiful Mess by Lucy V. Morgan.


Short description:

Working in a wedding cake shop sucks when you’ve just been dumped.

Bailey Frost has a recipe for disaster: one cheating ex, one big glass of liquor, and three well-meaning male friends who think her lack of a sex life is funny. Before she knows it, she’s confessed that she’s never had an orgasm with a man.

Now Bailey has to navigate sappy couples at work, while her friends are hell-bent on helping her get revenge on evil Craig… by dressing up as werewolves, on YouTube.

And one of those friends– the tall, shy-but-gorgeous Linc–might just want to help Bailey with that other little problem…


My two cents:

It was a cute little thing. British, mind you, so if you don’t like the flavour of British vocabulary, you might want to pass.

A woman trying to get over her shitty ex always makes for good fun: license to be wild. What she did: try out that cute male friend she never thought of that way before. Bailey was likeable, and it was clear from the start that she and Linc were a possible pair.

The sex scenes were sweet; not as hot as I prefer but they were in line with the overall tone of the story.

There was humour in it, but not quite as roll-on-floor-laughing as some of Ms. Morgan’s fans have attested to. But then again, maybe I’ve got a high standard for what makes me laugh.

All in all, a satisfying, bubbly short read.

4 out of 5 stars in my book.
