When a gorgeous cop comes racing out of a building on Fifth Avenue, hops in your horse-drawn carriage, and screams, “Go!”—you go.

You don’t stop and ask for paperwork. Or a badge. Or an explanation of who you’re chasing. You simply follow his shouted orders and try not to kill anyone in the process.

At least, that’s what I did when it happened to me.

But then it turns out th

I was really into this book until about 40 percent. We have the movie star with a heart of gold and a horse-carriage driver.

Roman has all the money and fame, but he's not happy, and his panic attacks are getting worse. Scotty gets fired when Roman, impersonating NYPD, jumps in his carriage and instructs him to go on a harrowing ride through New York City.

I loved that Scotty stood up for himself and allowed Roman to help him (seeing how Roman got him fired in the first place). The sexy bits wer

This was a cute story but just didn’t quite hit the mark for me. I wanted time with Roman & Scotty but felt the cast of thousands just spoiled the story. One or two secondary characters is fine, but not a revolving door of guests ! Just felt it watered everything down.

LOL - and that's just exactly what I did with the book, almost from start to finish. This is the sort of madcap mayhem that used to be made into films starring Cary Grant and Colette Colbert in the 30s and 40s or possibly Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.

It was sweet, sexy, emotional, hilarious, utterly ridiculous at times, it has a character who is central to the narrative who never actually appears on page and believe me, I cannot wait until we finally get to Oscar's own book!

4.5 stars rounded down

If you read the first book in this series you'll remember Scotty, the Central Park carriage rider. This is his story, and the title to this book is fairly accurate.

The way Scott and Roman start is funny, and funny things continue throughout this book - even as most of the secondary characters in this book annoyed the crap out of me. Just because they had funny moments didn't mean they were all that likable.

I loved Scotty and Roman though, despite a moment of silliness and

Surprisingly we get to know a little bit more about Oscar than in the previous book and I personally thought that this took more part in the story than the actual characters story LOL

But it was funny and had a very cute horse. We met new people and crazy things happened!

The 3.5 stars are because I skimmed some through it cause I felt it was dragging a bit but I enjoyed the story!

Can't wait to meet the other people Oscar had dated! LOL

This went from boring to "who the fuck are these people why do the author's think I'm going to care about random people walking in on naked men they don't know"

Oh wait, this is LL, the author who thinks women groping men it's ok if they are gay.

LOL follows IRL in the After Oscar series. While Roman is new to the series and Scotty was only introduced in the first book, I feel these books are best read in order. The name of the series is After Oscar and the character of Oscar has been teased out already through these two books. In IRL, Oscar was mentioned. In LOL, Oscar is sort of on page as he is seen through phone calls and texts with Roman. The men are also staying in Oscar’s home and we hear more stor

First, let me get this out: I adored the first book. I was looking forward to this one but sadly, I had to DNF at around 60% into the book.

I liked the beginning but then the storyline became kind of silly. Scotty and his horse going into Roman's house, then all the characters popping up everywhere made no sense. I loved Oscar - which didn't even appear in person in front of the character but we meet through phone conversations and funny stories - more than the main characters. I was so hesitant

Aww, such a sweet bok! I absolutely loved Roman (Scott was great too). Some things felt a bit too over the top, and some characters were prettyyyy annoying (and by that I mean very annoying. Seriously, Marigold drove me crazy, haha), but it was still a very good book. Also, they actually communicated with each other instead of just being all sad without saying anything, fantastic ;)

So, so, so loved this one. It's the kind of book that after you finish reading it, you just want to be still and hug it for a while (ok, I know that's corny and rest assured I would never actually do that). But, I DO just want to hold on to the warm fuzzy feelings I got from reading it for just a bit longer.

The collaboration of these 2 authors is pure gold (I believe they are sisters in real life, btw). I really liked the 1st book in the series, and I loved this one even more. Their books will b

It wad soo over the top in both, unrealistic, ridiculous scenes/people, and cloying sweetness.
It was NOT a terrible story, but just isn't my kind of story.

More doesn't make better.

I know the title "LOL" should have warned me that this was going to be a Hollywood RomCom and a slapstick story. But I kind of liked IRL, and I did hope that LOL would work just as well within the premise of the category of light entertainment. Well, it didn't work for me.

To say I'm disappointed would be admitting that I had expectations in the first place, which I didn't after the ugly done in the second half of the first book. But I still gave this a try and the story is trying too hard. The characters are trying too hard. A big miss for me.

This book is about Scotty. We met Scotty briefly in book one. He was the carriage driver.

I love Scotty. He’s just trying to make a living with his trusty companion nugget. And Roman. If I ever wanted to be with a famous person it’s him.
Love the honesty with these two. No hiding things even when it’s hard to tell. Many people said Roman was naive to be so trusting. Maybe he was, but I like that he was. I like that he trusted. Not everyone needs to be jaded. Besides that

3.5 stars. I liked this one better than the first in this series but you have to check your reality hard at the first page. It's funny, madcap, loving, sexy and romantic. I love how Roman and Scotty laugh together. It's also frustrating and annoying - almost exclusively because of outside visitors that have serious boundary issues and the lack of setting boundaries on the part of the MC's.

We are kinda getting a better idea of who Oscar is but I find this plot gimmick distracting.
LOL is a very apt title for this book because it’s a romantic comedy of errors from start to finish with a cavalcade of eccentric, flamboyant, sketchy, warm and loving friends and family, including Oscar’s. Oscar is just a voice on the phone still, we don’t get to meet him yet. At least the hapless Scotty and clueless Roman have time enough to start building their romance and relationship around the chaos. Watching them fumble around making assumptions and mistakes, then actually talk about it a ...more

I was looking forward to this book based on how good the first one in the series was. Sadly, there were too many interruptions from (mostly) unlikable surprise visitors and too many supposedly funny, over-the-top situations to make this an enjoyable read. All of the supporting characters' antics took away rather than added to the story and I found myself getting upset with how annoying they were and how Roman and Scotty just let them run roughshod all over them in every situation.

This second installment was just as good as the first. We are introduced to some of Oscar’s crazy family and exes, I can’t wait for his book. So Roman hijacks Scotty's carriage and takes off on a wild ride through Central Park. Scotty goes along with him as he believes Roman is a cop as he is in full uniform. When the wild ride comes to an end, he founds out otherwise and loses his job so now he and Nugget are homeless. Scotty tracks down Roman and tells him off saying that since it’s all his fa ...more

All the LOLs

This title tells you everything you need to know - you’re going to Laugh Out Loud. Scotty and Roman’s story made me think of an episode of “I Love Lucy” meets your favorite steamy MM scene! Their relationship unfolds within a romantic comedy of errors, but starring a cast of crazy side characters. Scotty and Roman quickly blossom into a sweet, caring and sexy relationship despite the craziness that surrounds them. They face a lot of external challenges that threaten to drive a wedge

Not my favorite

First of all, it pains me a bit to write this, I love Lucy Lennox. I've read and adored all of her other books. I loved reading IRL and had high hopes for this novel. Sadly, for me it felt too chaotic.

The abundance of crazy secondary characters was too much for me. Granny, Irene and Aunt Tilly (Marians/Wildes) are totally extra and over the top...but they fit. With LOL every single secondary character was over the top, in outlandish situations. I would have liked more with Scotty

Major cutie on the cover, wearing only a grey knit scarf. A big cityscape (NYC) is seen in the background. If the cutie and big, bold title font didn’t grab me, the author name (Lennox) would have, for sure. However, it was the synopsis that practically demanded that I read this story.

There are series that are improving again and again in volume tome, After Oscar is one of them. I loved IRL the first volume and with LOL, Lucy Lennox and Molly Maddox just offered me my first “coup de coeur” of the year. I just devoured it in a few hours and finished my reading with a huge smile on my face.
As in the first book and Lucy Lennox's previous stories that I have read, the quality of the work on the characters is one of the things we remember. LOL is no exception. The main characters,

While reading LOL, After Oscar #2, 80% of the time I was just like:

It finally happened. Thank you, Freddie Mercury.

I guess I'm relatively alone with my opinion here, but I definitely did not laug out loud while reading this book. There was not much that was making me laugh. Instead, there was a lot that made me feel a lot of second-hand embarrassment. I guess I just have to accept that Lucy Lennox's works are full of obnoxious side characters like aunt Tilly - but this book really takes the ca

This second book in the After Oscar series by Lucy Lennox and Molly Maddox is another winner! I loved getting to know Scotty the Central Park carriage driver who we meet briefly in the first book when the MC couple take a carriage ride on a date.
Roman Burke, hollywood action hero, is larger than life and an ex of the infamous Oscar who also happens to be his agent, destroying Scotty's career with one thoughtless act during a moment of crisis. I love how Scotty j
