Sophie’s going to a wedding where the invite is strictly plus one… but with her single girl status not exactly fitting in with the bridesmaid dress code, and the best man being none other than the ex she would rather forget, Sophie needs a favour and she needs it fast!

Luckily for Sophie, her dreamy but distant co-worker Adam Reid owes their mutual friend James a favour...a

British rom-coms are one of my favorite genres. This one made the grade. I chuckled during Sophie and Adam’s wedding weekend, hurt for Sophie when she was getting her feelings trampled all over, and sighed with relief when Sophie and Adam finally started being honest with each other.

Low points included Sophie’s insecurities being too exaggerated, and being reminded repeatedly of Adam’s “player” reputation.

One of my favorite things about this book is how fun the characters were. The guests at the

I really enjoyed this book; it reminded me of a Richard Curtis rom-com Movie.

Sophie has been unlucky in love, and as such doesn’t have a lot of confidence. She tries to blend into life and stay under the radar, going un-noticed and keeping her life drama free.

Adam is her polar opposite, he lives life to the full, goes through women like water, and isn’t shy to tell you exactly what he wants.

After some meddling from mutual friend and colleague James, Sophie and Adam are thrust together, pretendin

Sophie Trewyn is invited to her friend’s wedding. However, there are things that prevent her from wanting to go. For one, the invite says to bring a “plus one”. As Sophie is not currently in a relationship, her work colleague suggests to take fellow co-worker and womaniser Adam. Will those two be able to keep up appearances at the wedding?

There are books I really enjoy reading and then there are books I love and just cannot stop talking about. Plus One is a Lucky Number definitely belongs into t

I'm not normally a big fan of chick-lit - to do with being in the wrong age bracket, I think! - but something about this one appealed to me. Engineer Sophie Trewyn has been sitting on a wedding invite for months, uncertain what to do because she has no partner. When workmate James finds the invite, he cajoles his friend Adam Reid into accompanying her. Although the two barely know each other, they are forced into pretending they are a couple. They are drawn to each other but understandably wary ...more

I really liked this book. It was fun and easy to read with great characters.

Sophie, an unassuming engineer, is a bridesmaid in her friend's wedding. The invitation is for plus one but Sophie doesn't have anyone to bring. Her friend, James, spies the invitation and sets his friend, Adam, up to go with Sophie as her plus one.

There are some unexpected occurrences that take place at the wedding that Sophie didn't prepare Adam for but he continued to act like her boyfriend. They grow very comfortable

There is something about British Romantic Comedy that is unique.

The females always seem that little bit more insecure (Bridget Jones is a classic example). The men have that "cheeky chap" personality that endears them to everyone, gets them laid regularly (the girls always knowing it's not going to be a forever deal) and are convinced that they aren't the kind of guy who will ever settle down (think Hugh Grant's character in "Love

3.5 stars.

Weddings bring out the best or worst in people. There really is no in between. You either are impressed by someone or completely turned off.

Even more insufferable are those occasions when you are a guest at a wedding - a solo guest. You know that "plus one" on the invitation? Isn't it far more comforting and satisfying to pen in the name of your plus one than it is to leave it blank?

Sophie agrees. When invited to her cousin's wedding, Sophie dreads returning home single, without a plu

Let me admit it up front: Plus One is a Lucky Number is my kind of book. You aren't supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I did. By that, and its genre. I love chick lit and this one promised a feel-good factor that it defo delivered. I like the world, I like the characters, I like the concept, and I like the fact that its a page-turner.

Sophie, our heroine, makes it a point never to hide behind her feminine charms. She works hard not to be the girly-girl in a sea of men in her high-powered

Sophie is dreading going back home from her life in Surrey, to Cornwall for a weekend for her friends birthday. Why? Because her ex Simon, who royally screwed her over will be there, seeing as he's the best man and all, and she doesn't have a date. Dateless is not the best thing for a bridesmaid to be. But when her friend James spots the wedding invite in her bag and learns she's not got a date, he does what any self respecting mate would in a favour from his very good looking friend, ...more

Jane Hunt Writer Book Reviews

Plus One is a Lucky Number has the feel good factor. It is a fast paced fun read with engaging characters and vivid settings.

Sophie plays down her looks and femininity to be taken seriously in a male dominated career. Hurt after a relationship with a selfish womaniser she shies away from dating and substitutes work for love. A family wedding looms and Sophie is single. No plus one. James a friend and work colleague calls in a favour and persuades Adam who Sophie sec

Disclaimer: I received this book free from Pocket Books in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.

One of the things that I love about reviewing books is discovering authors that I had never heard of nor read before. This was definitely one of those finds that I enjoyed. Truly great book by a new author!

We have all had those family events to go to where you are expected to bring a plus one. What would you do if you had to attend one and didn't have someone to ta

We follow Sophie Trewyn a shy, hard-working and extremely nervous, brain box who is forced to go home to Cornwall for a family wedding. Awaiting her there is nothing but bad memories and a broken heart. Taking along Adam a friend of her friend James's as her pretend boyfriend, will it be plain sailing or a complete and utter disaster?

Ahhh what a lovely book this is. Made me get a warm inside it did. Full of charisma, charm, lust and lies. A perfect read for us girls with our head in the clouds

Having read Teresa F Morgan’s second book first (purely on the basis that I liked the cover more!), and really enjoyed it, I was really looking forward to reading her debut novel for Harper Impulse. And I wasn’t disappointed.

Sophie Trewyn is a heroine for the twenty first century; an intelligent, driven woman who guards her heart fiercely but who can’t help feeling attracted to the roguishly attractive Adam Reid after he agrees to help her out of a spot involving a wedding invitation, a bridesma

Wow I loved this book! So much I was annoyed when it ended! I could have carried in reading about Sophie and Adam for days without getting bored.

The book starts with a plot that wouldn't look out if place in a Hollywood movie - plain workaholic girl doesn't want to go to a wedding minus a date, friend interferes, hot date is found and agrees to weekend away with stranger to act as date. Sounds a little far fetched, but actually, the story and the characters quickly become very realistic. And to

A good, light, fun read with some sexy 'almost' moments. Adam is a brilliant hero for the story - charming, kind, sexy, gorgeous, but with a serious commitment phobia. Is Sophie the woman who can cure him?? I wasn't too sure about the premise of this book - it was too convenient that Adam was available/willing to go to a wedding for the whole weekend (not just a day), but once the story started flowing, that part of it didn't bother me so much. I liked the fact that the story continued after the ...more

I love reading novels by British authors. All of the colloquialisms are fun to read and try to figure out. Sophie has to go home to Cornwall for her friend's wedding, but wants to ditch it (even though she's a bride's maid) because she doesn't want to run in to her cheating ex. Her meddling co-worker, James convinces his buddy, Adam, to be her plus one and to keep Sophie safe and happy.
Cute premise, but fell a little flat. There needed to be more of a journey for our heroine, I felt. Lots of le

I received this book from NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review.

Sophie has a problem- she needs a plus one for her cousin's wedding. She needs a buffer and fast. In steps James- her good friend who calls in a favor with the very hot Adam. Adam has no idea what he's stepping into. Sophie's family, her ex are all making it hard to resist Sophie. The will they won't they builds and is diffused in hilarious ways.
This was a sweet story and a great summer read.

One to curl up with for a bit of romantic fun!

Everyone’s worst nightmare – Sophie is going to a wedding with no suitable ‘plus one’ in sight! Adam is persuaded to fill the position (who wouldn’t want him!) and fun and games ensue as the long weekend unfolds. As two work-focused individuals act out the part of a loving couple, there are enough twists to keep the reader turning those pages, with some great laughs.

I'll admit for the first half this book reminded me so much of the movie 'The Wedding Date' that I wondered how on earth the author was going to keep the story going for a second half - but then the story took an unexpected twist and I was hooked.

This characters were believable, relatable, and the book definitely had page turning quality. Best of all, I completely fell in love with Adam. I want one of him! Hours after I finished reading I was still drooling over him (and I still am).

Not normally a romcom/chiclit kind a girl, I won this in a competition. Away for a long weekend with the family, I found myself ignoring them completely in order to read on. Couldn't put it down. Loved this story and read it in 48hours. Label me a convert, I'm going to try more.

I was looking for something light and fun to read as my next book for the ARC challenge so I was delighted when I received this book for review.

Unfortunately my delight was short lived. I'm a fairly black and white person so it annoys me when a novel is based around a problem that could be solved with a simple conversation. Sophie invites Adam to be her "plus one" at a wedding. The problem is she has told
