Pandora Ann Phillips’ life is just normal-crazy.

Her mom’s psychic, her dad’s mom is a snob, her mom’s parental units are ‘too down to earth’ and her best friends are newlyweds. Okay, so her best friends being newlyweds isn’t really abnormal, but living with them in a cramped two-bedroom apartment definitely is. Sex, sex, sex, is totally on their brains. Actually, it’s not only on their brains, but it’s on the kitchen table, couch, on top of the washer…well, you get the picture.

Being a celibate (not by choice, mind you) full-time college student, and working as an almost full-time barista, Pandora can’t afford to lose anymore sleep. So, she decides to seek out a new place to lay her head. Enter three ‘drool worthy’ male models that are looking for a fourth roommate, and they want her…and won’t take no for an answer.

Romantic hilarity ensues as Pandora’s life turns completely upside down, and she begins to wonder if it will ever be the same again!

WARNING - This is my first review in over 2 months. YIP! 2 months! I took a break and now I am back so please be patient until I find my review flow again. Lol. I struggled with this so it isn't up to my usual standards. That is nothing to do with actual book :)

Lucky Number Four is the first book I bought in 2014 and it was a really fun and quick read that really helped me overcome my reading slump. It is far from perfect but it a light and witty.

It centres around Dora. A senior in college who decides it time to find a new place to live after her two best friends and room mates get married. Dora at times annoyed the hell of me. I felt that all she ever did moan. She thought herself as "average" looking and told us that repeatedly. Which made to want to actually slap her because she obviously isn't average. She has men drooling over her and everytime she makes a comment about looking average it comes across like she is fishing for complements. A lot of the time I forgot she was actually 22! She isn't all the mature and the characters feels more like 17. 

When she moves in with her new room mates (don't even get me started on how that happened because it would give away spoilers) they all instantly like her. They are all hot there is no doubt there. Drew, Colin and Liam. All three are models but really quite down to earth once you get to know them. However, at times the do come across quite stalkerish (<---is that a word? lol).

Now I can't really comment on the actual plot because I feel like I would end up spoiling a lot of it. So I will just say that is was very interesting! It was a lot of fun and light-hearted. There is a good mix of romance, a little bit of mystery and a lot of humour. Lucky Number Four is a very funny read. Although some of the events are slightly unrealistic.

Characters and unrealistic events aside the author has created a very fun read. The reader can easily get lost in Dora's world, drooling over hot men. I really like the author's style of writing. It was quite unique and very witty which kept me hooked on the story. She throws in a few curve balls to keep the readers guessing and by the end I will admit that I did like Dora even though I didn't at first.

I do suggest if you are looking for a really quick read and you like romance then give this a try. :)
