Publisher's Summary

Scotty:

When a gorgeous cop comes racing out of a building on Fifth Avenue, hops in your horse-drawn carriage, and screams, “Go!” - you go.

You don’t stop and ask for paperwork. Or a badge. Or an explanation of who you’re chasing. You simply follow his shouted orders and try not to kill anyone in the process.

At least, that’s what I did when it happened to me. 

But then it turns out that the “cop” is none other than Roman Burke, Hollywood’s hottest star, and our little joyride gets me fired. Now I’m broke, my horse has been evicted from her barn, and I’ve got nowhere to turn. 

Roman:

When you accidentally hijack a Central Park carriage to escape the paparazzi, get pulled over by the police, and your crisis manager insists you lay low for a while, you nod your head and go.

And when the cute carriage driver shows up on your front step, horse in tow, blaming you for losing his job, you agree to fix it. Even if that means hauling both him and his horse along with you on your Vermont getaway. 

At least that’s what I did when it happened to me.

Unfortunately, trouble seems to stick to the sexy carriage driver like hot syrup on a hotter waffle, making my Vermont retreat anything but quiet. 

Now the carriage driver is in my bed, unexpected guests are crawling out of the woodwork, and the paparazzi is on my tail. With chaos and scandal swarming around me, suddenly, it isn’t just my career on the line.

It’s my heart.

Could have done with some judicious editing!

The moral of this story...just because the first story was good, does not mean the second would be just as good. This one was horrible. It seemed forced and over the top. I’ve learnt my lesson. What a waste of money. Only redeeming quality was the narrator.

just...bad.

This book read like someone who had no passion or interest in this story at all. Was there a deadline? Was this just for more cash? I've read Lucy Lennox before, but this was just bad. When people talk about books that fetishize gay men (neither had much of a personality other than lust) or "chicks with dicks"...this book is what they're talking about. disappointing because I know Lucy Lennox is capable of so much better.

Happy Ending? Happy when it ended!

I don’t listen to these for great stories or writing, but as a distraction. I bought this after listening to “IRL” by the same authors, and enjoying it. The premise isn’t bad, and the principle couple are interesting enough, but I think the authors were so desperate to create a “LOL” story, they brought in characters that were more annoying than charming. And if this is supposed to be a set up for another book in the series, I can’t think of a single secondary character in the story that I care about enough to bother listening to a 3rd book

Silly and Sweet

If you enjoy ridiculousness for the sake of ridiculousness, this is a silly and sweet story for you. Every character brings a bit more of it to the party.

Remember Scotty from IRL? Well, his horse drawn carriage gets hijacked by a cop and they dash through NYC. Only it is famous actor Roman in the midst of a panic attack. Scotty loses his job and has to scramble to take care of himself and Nugget, his beloved horse. When his luck runs out, he brings Nugget into Roman’s house to demand his help taking care of him. Because of course. Throw in an escape from the paparazzi in Vermont, with Nugget, stowaway Scotty, and the most eccentric cast of friends and family and you’ve got one heck of a ridiculous story.

Cute and funny


LOL was a cute and funny story. It had me literally laughing out loud through out the book. The sex was hot.

I would love to hear about Oscar or even Marigold next.

Hate the story!

I really hate the story! When people are stupid, it doesn't work for me. And here are plenty of stupid people. I hate greedy people too, and the way they talk about others and each other is disgusting. It's just a big resounding no!

Maybe editing could help, but so glad I found it

Lucy almost always hooks me with her great Main Characters. By the time I got halfway through this book, I had a huge crush on Scotty and his love for his horse, Nugget. Roman seemed like a good guy too despite his Movie Star Persona, I got the idea that deep down he still lived by his Nebraska upbringing. After Scotty spoke to his Mom when she called from prison I just had to put it aside for a while. The craziness at the "Cottage" just got to be too much too fast for me....but I think maybe that's what Lucy was sort of going for. I kept thinking about Scotty every once in a while and finally, I decided to continue listening again a few weeks later. I listened to it from the beginning and then stayed with it. I'm really glad I did because it was a fun crazy time for the guys and I was so impressed with the way Scotty tried to protect Roman from everything that came at them and the way Roman looked after Scotty. The Narrator, Michael Pauley continues to impress me with his great voices for the characters. I was so satisfied at the end that I had to go back and listen yet again. Maybe it should be edited a bit more, but I'm not sure what I would be ok with cutting. In the end, it's a keeper just as it is.

Beautiful Chaos

This was a book of some fun side characters. I laughed at all the Shenanigans these characters provided in the story. I think I’d like another book just to see what trouble they can all get into! The romance was sweet and I shed tears worrying about Nugget...lol. I love these authors!!!

LOL is right!

Probably one of the best books I’ve ever listen to. I laughed, I cried and laughed a lot more. Highly recommend anyone to read or listen to this book. Now I’m going to go by the next in the series.

4.275 > Fun but Utterly Chaotic

POV ~> Alternating first-person

Major cutie on the cover, wearing only a grey knit scarf. A big cityscape (NYC) is seen in the background. If the cutie and big, bold title font didn’t grab me, the author name (Lennox) would have, for sure. However, it was the synopsis that practically demanded that I read this story.

OMG, I do not know when I have laughed and enjoyed a story so much!
Scotty lives check to check and just wants to feel safe, and even perhaps, loved.
Roman is a movie star craving just a bit of normalcy.
A scandalous ride through Central Park leaves Roman on a mandatory R&R getaway in rural Vermont and carriage driver Scotty jobless and homeless. His horse, Nugget, is also in dire need of a new home, too.
Scotty finds and confronts Roman. Roman tries to do the right thing. Scotty ultimately finds himself in Vermont, at the infamous Oscar’s house (though Oscar is still an unknown entity yet). Antics ensue with family and a few more x-Oscar guys.
There’s as much feel good as hilarity, sexy as sweet. I started out borrowing the book from Kindle Unlimited but bought it before I was finished. I have every intention of purchasing this series in paperback format (if available at GRL) and **HAVE TO** hear Michael Pauley narrate this one, too, so I will happily own it in every available format!
Cast was fantastic. Interactions and dialogue were entertaining. The plot was excellent and a true pleasure to read. Chemistry was fantastic. There were a few conflicts along the way, but these two guys were amazingly smart and mature. Resolutions were met before any major angst could be had. Predictability… who the hell could predict half of what was happening? The conclusion was solid enough and satisfying. I really hope this is not the last we see of them, I think Scotty had tied himself with Lennox’s Stevie (FLIRT) as an all-time favorite character.
I cannot wait for the next book in the series and am already recommending this series to friends!

Well paced and clear enunciation.
Large cast, each with a unique voice - even during the crazy group scenes.
Fun, but occasionally overly chaotic.
It was an enjoyable and entertaining audio version.
