Review time again!
Sophie’s going to a wedding where the invite is strictly plus one… but with her single girl status not exactly fitting in with the bridesmaid dress code, and the best man being none other than the ex she would rather forget, Sophie needs a favour and she needs it fast!
Luckily for Sophie, her dreamy but distant co-worker Adam Reid owes their mutual friend James big time…and his gorgeousness more than fills the role of the ‘Perfect Boyfriend’!
As they take off to the sunny shores of Cornwall for the wedding weekend, it’s not long before pretence leads to passion and Sophie and Adam must decide; is their relationship real or is it all for show?
Plus One is a Lucky Number is another fake relationship novel and once again I think the author handles it very well. There are some parts I’m not sure I totally understand – mostly Adam’s reaction to Sophie’s ex – but I don’t how much of that is because this is a UK book and how much is Morgan’s writing. Overall though I found it to be quite entertaining and Morgan has an engaging style that kept me reading.
Like Shane in Her Accidental Boyfriend and Cane in Seven Day Fiance, Adam is afraid of commitment. He too had something happen in his past, which caused him to think he isn’t a good bet as a significant other. It was great watching him fall in love and try to decide if he’s willing to risk a chance at a relationship with Sophie. Sophie has some self-esteem issues related to a bad boyfriend and her time spent with Adam, plus the closure with her ex, does a lot to help her find herself again. I really enjoyed seeing her come into her own, learn to believe in herself, and to stand up for what she believes is best for her.
Plus One is a Lucky Number is another cute reminder of the fun and complications that can be found when a couple has to act like they’re in love, only to find themselves falling for each other for real.
