Synopsis
The ridiculous, hilarious adventures of Georgia continue. Georgia is bemoaning the fact that her family is moving temporarily to New Zealand but, as the title points out, she's now the girlfriend of a sex god. But when the sex god isn't calling Georgia starts to wonder what's really going on.


What is has going for it
These books take the words "light fluffy mind candy" to a whole new level. If you're in need of a good laugh, pick these books up. Georgia's ridiculous ideas and thoughts are so fun to read about. Her family and cat crack me up and I'm always wondering what she'll get up to next.

What's lacking
The problem with light fluffy books is, beside being good for a laugh or a smile they're pretty pointless. This one seemed to have even less of a point than the first one, which is pretty sad, actually. I'll still probably read the rest of the books eventually because they make me laugh but I'd like a little bit more of a plot. Nothing huge, I know these books aren't really about the plot, but just a little something more.

Favorite moment
When Georgia put the underwear/knickers on her head. I laughed so hard I think snorting was involved!

Yea or Nay?
Meh, this one wasn't my favorite but I'd still recommend it for a laugh. Just don't expect much more than that.

  1. Awe, I love this series. As Georgia grows a little, the story gets better. There are tons more boyfriends and crazy antics, but the last book had be crying! And not from tears.

  4. I totally love this series and I thought it read like light fluff but had surprising depth. the first one actually won a printz honor, I believe. Sigh... Dave the Laugh shows up in this one doesn't he? He's my fave. I reread these more than any other series. LOL. They are my fave. :)

  6. I'll read it just because of the title alone. I love fluffy mind candy books. Is it anything like Lisa Shanahans book? I'm still thinking of that book months later.

    1. Lisa Shanahan's books have depth to them. These? Not so much, but they're funny.
