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!

Review by: Bonnie on June 29, 2011 :
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.

Review by: RAVENSWOOD PUBLISHING on May 23, 2011 :

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.

Review by: Carolina Hernandez on May 11, 2011 :
Josephine McMaster is pretty and smart, but very much a klutzy mess. Finally, at 26, she may have actually lost the dreaded 'McMaster the Disaster' nickname that has followed her around her whole life.

Josie's quite content to be single, much to her mother's disappointment. So when a bizarre contest is announced where a socialite is holding a lottery to pick her bridesmaids (and rake in a little extra cash), she can't roll her eyes fast enough, even if it does mean meeting Jake Hall, her one and only movie star crush. Obviously, Josie doesn't enter the bridesmaid lottery, so you can imagine her surprise when her picture pops up among the winners, thanks to Mom. With a little prodding -- okay bribing -- Josie agrees to participate.

The wedding turns into the event of the year, and Josie finds herself in the middle of a paparazzi feeding frenzy, which gets even crazier after Jake Hall takes a special interest in her.

Can Josie handle the pressure in the spotlight? Is it possible she might really have a chance with Jake Hall? And if she's busy worrying about all that, how in the heck is she going to keep 'McMaster the Disaster' from showing up in front of the entire world?

After being entered by her mother, Josie is one of four women selected to be a bridesmaid for a socialite and her fiance. Josie is completely against the idea but goes along with it when her mom offers her an incentive she can't say no to. Josie spends the next three months in a whirlwind of glitz, glamour and spotlight. This book is a great read, the characters are fun and it is easy to get wrapped up in. Great for a beach read or just a fun entertaining read.

Oh how I loved this book! There are very few books that I have read cover to cover in one sitting, and this was one of them (others being all books from Sarah Addison Allen and maybe a Harry Potter or two or three). The book hooks you right away!

Thanks to a meddling mother, the main character ends up in a situation she swears she doesn't want to be in, but is secretly excited about the prospect of meeting her long time crush, movie star Jake Hall! The main character's image of herself is not matched by anyone who knows her, as they see her as beautiful, smart, and kind. She sees herself as a disaster and uses her "disasters" (laugh out loud funny stories about her most embarrassing moments) to keep her grounded during an experience that could give her a "big head". Josie (the main character) struggles to see herself as anything other than Josie McMaster the Disaster, but eventually finds that her "disasters" just make more likable.

The dialog between the characters is wonderful. In order for me to really enjoy a book, it must have great dialog and wonderful characters. This book has both. Josie's comments and inner thoughts are hysterical!

This book is laugh out loud funny - I'm still laughing - and it has the sweetest love story. I won't ruin it by telling you more. This book is like reading all the favorite parts of your favorite chic flicks combined in a wonderfully original story! I will warn you though, that the end leaves you hanging and wanting for more! I will wait patiently for the sequel!!
