Not a bad story, unfortuantely not as uncommon a premise!

A fun read. Predictable but enjoyable getting to the end anyway. Needs better editing but the flow of the book isn't too interrupted by it.

I liked that the heroine wasn't perfect but she was still a bit too perfect in appearance and, of course, the male lead was the ultimate super movie star. It made it a little harder to root for them. But their adventures were fun. I laughed out loud a few times.

I really enjoyed reading this book! It is a read perfect to just relax and enjoy after a day of hard work or studying!
I think some parts are a little predictable, but hey, if the outcome is otherwise you are disappointed, so it does not matter at all (to me!)
It is also nice that it is written in a rather informal style!
And well I have to admit, that I’m dying to read part 2!

Bridesmaid Lotto was a really fun and lighthearted read. I loved Josie as a main character and she just felt so real to me. I loved that she was prone to accidents and embarrassing herself in public – who isn’t? – and her Disaster Diary provided some welcome comic relief. Josie really did not want to be a part of the Bridesmaid Lotto but eventually the glitz and glamour (and of course the chance to meet her long time movie star crush) wins out and she surrenders to the parties and the designer dresses. While she does get caught up in the excitement preparing for the wedding I was happy to see that she didn’t completely loose herself. She still reminded herself of who she was by writing about her misadventures in her Disaster Diary and she remained relatively grounded considering the situations she found herself in. I absolutely loved Josie’s friend Matty, he was the token gay best friend, but his character was done so well. He wasn’t too over the top and added just the right amount of humor.

The love story was a little predictable but it was well done so I didn’t mind. It was nice for a change to read of a main character who isn’t completely tortured and damaged and suffering in an emotionally draining relationship. Josie’s relationship was the kind of story that makes you *sigh* and wish you were in her shoes. Sometimes we all need a little bit of a fairy tale.

I don’t often read Chick LIt but I am so glad that I read Bridesmaid Lotto. It was the perfect combination of humor, wit, and a little bit of romance. I can honestly say that I am looking forward for the release of the next book in the series Gamble on Engagement, which is expected to be released in August, 2011. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a light and fun romantic comedy.

I received a free copy of Bridesmaid Lotto from the author (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

RACHEL ASTOR'S "BRIDESMAID LOTTO" (A REVIEW)

When Josie MacMasters is reluctantly entered into a contest to become one of the bridesmaids of a rich debutante she doesn't realize until too late just how insane the entire process is going to be. With the wedding looming 3 months away she is harassed by papparazi, looked down upon by her peers, and thrown knee deep into a world she'd rather not be a part of. All this becomes a little better when she meets Jake Hall, the object of her one true desire.

This story is wonderfully written and fun! It contains just the right balance of humor, real life, and romance. A definite must read for those that love chick-lit and romance!

Bridesmaid Lotto is a great treat to read. It is a very romantic novel that will have you glued till the end. I actually finished this book in one day which I usually don't do. I am look forward to a movie based on this novel and other novels by Rachel Astor. This is a very cute story about Josie McMaster's journey through her experience of being a bridesmaid for a famous movie star. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and every one.
