This week my book boyfriend is Lucas Capelli from My Not So Super Sweet Life by Rachel Harris.  He's a modern day Prince Charming, totally swoon-worthy and romantic, he's fiercely protective, and he goes above and beyond in the boyfriend department....oh and his hotness factor is off the charts to.  Are you ready to meet him?

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.

My Thoughts:  I have thoroughly enjoyed this series by Rachel Harris.  The first book was really cute and sweet and I loved Cat and Lorenzo, and were briefly introduced to Lucas.  The second book, A Tale of Two Centuries was Alessandra and Austin's story and I enjoyed it even more than the first.  We got to see a bit of Lucas and Cat in that book also, but we really get to know Lucas in My Not So Super Sweet Life, and I totally fell in love with him.  Where as the first two books were more light and fun, this book is more on the serious side, and OMG - the romance factor is turned up into the read/heated zone big time.  I loved it!! 

Cat just wants to have a normal life, but with her parents both being in Hollywood, her dad's upcoming marriage, and a stunt her mom pulls, Cat has some serious issues she has to deal with in this book, and she doesn't always handle things in the best manner.  Lucas also has his own problems he is dealing with related to his family and what's expect of him.  Lucas is so romantic and totally swoon-worthy, and is also very protective of what's his, namely Cat.  He really outdoes himself in the boyfriend department and I would love to just pull him out of the book and keep him for myself.  He truly is a modern day Prince Charming.   We are also introduced to a new character, Ransom, and well.....I hope we get to see more of him.  

My Not So Super Sweet Life is a wonderful addition to this adorably sweet, fun, and swoony series that YA romance fans will love.  The story is captivating, the characters are beautifully done, and Rachel Harris has once again proved what a talented and creative author she is.

Rachel Harris writes humorous love stories about sassy girls-next-door and the hot guys that make them swoon. Emotion, vibrant settings, and strong families are a staple in each of her Rachel Harrisbooks…and kissing. Lots of kissing.

A Cajun cowgirl now living in Houston, she firmly believes life’s problems can be solved with a hot, sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations. She homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches way too much Food Network with her amazing husband.

An admitted Diet Mountain Dew addict, she gets through each day by laughing at herself, hugging her kids, and losing herself in story. She writes young adult, new adult, and adult romances, and LOVES talking with readers!
