ARC Review: My Not So Super Sweet Life

My Not So Super Sweet Life
My Not So Super Sweet Life by Rachel Harris
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Release date: April 21, 2014

Cat Crawford just wants to be normal—or at least as normal as a daughter of Hollywood royalty can be. And it looks like fate is granting her wish: she’s got an amazing boyfriend, Lucas; her fabulous cousin, Alessandra, living with her; and her dad planning his second marriage to a great future stepmom. That is, until her prodigal mother reveals on national television that she has something important to tell her daughter…causing a media frenzy.

Lucas Capelli knows his fate is to be with Cat, and he’s worked hard to win her over once and for all. Unfortunately, Lucas has his own issues to deal with, including a scandal that could take him away from the first place he’s truly belonged.

As secrets are revealed, rumors explode, and the world watches, Cat and Lucas discover it’s not fate they have to fight if they want to stay together…this time, it’s their own insecurities.

Well, and the stalkerazzi.

The final book in the time-travelling series but doesn’t have any time-travelling. Hmmm…I say I was a bit disappointed in that. Sure, the book had a good story, with Cat and Lucas getting over their respective problems and finding their way to each other. Cat’s trust issues drive the plot in a major way, and the need to know why her mother abandoned her dominates her decisions for nearly the entirety of the story. It was fairly predictable, and which is why even though I liked the book, I wasn’t really impressed with it. The first book, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century may have set the bar high for that one, actually. The magic just wasn’t there this time around.

Cat and Lucas were adorable and their dual POV worked very well. They support each other immensely and care for one another a lot. I just wish we had more of Less and Austin too, as well as more back-story on Ransom. The ending was good – open-ended though, which makes me confused as to whether they will be more. Overall, a good book for fans of the series.

Received an ARC from Entangled Teen in exchange for an honest review
