Cat Crawford just wants to be normal—or at least as normal as a daughter of Hollywood royalty can be. And it looks like fate is granting her wish: she’s got an amazing boyfriend, Lucas; her fabulous cousin, Alessandra, living with her; and her dad planning his second marriage to a great future stepmom. That is, until her prodigal mother reveals on national television that she has something important to tell her daughter…causing a media frenzy.
Lucas Capelli knows his fate is to be with Cat, and he’s worked hard to win her over once and for all. Unfortunately, Lucas has his own issues to deal with, including a scandal that could take him away from the first place he’s truly belonged.
As secrets are revealed, rumors explode, and the world watches, Cat and Lucas discover it’s not fate they have to fight if they want to stay together…this time, it’s their own insecurities.

Well, and the stalkerazzi.

Jennifer's Review:
My Not So Super Sweet Life is the finale of the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series. It brings together everyone that we have come to love from the previous two books into one great ending to the series.

The story:
We have followed Cat through her journey since the first book:  MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY. In My Not So Super Sweet Life 16 year old Cat Crawford finally comes to a resolution on issues regarding being abandoned by her own mother and issues with being loved. She feels that she needs closure so she can move on with her relationship with boyfriend Lucas Capelli. Cat has had these issues since the very first book in this series. Thankfully in this book she finally realizes that she is surrounded by amazing people in her life that a) love her and b)will not abandon her: father, step mom Jenna (loved the interactions of Cat & Jenna in this book), cousin Allessandra, and boyfriend Lucas. The series wraps up everything nicely and everyone is better off in the end.

Lucas and Lorenzo :-)
Well I loved Lorenzo who we meet in the first book. When we met Lucas in book #2 I just wasn't ready to forget Lorenzo. I liked Lucas BUT not as much as Lorenzo or Austin.  I became Team Austin. Rachel hinted that I would probably develop a strong love for Lucas in Book #3 and switch teams or at least be both Team Austin and Lucas and she was 100% CORRECT. In this book, WOW Lucas won me over and I am quite certain will win you over as well. Be prepared to swoon for Lucas!

Some twists in this book:
In this book, Rachel introduces us to a new character:  RANSOM Chase.  Ransom is Cat's half brother (same mom, also abandoned but at birth). Despite being newly reunited as siblings in this book -- he changes Cat's outlook and response to situations (in a good way) and I think she changes his. Rachel doesn't give us a ton of information on Ransom's back story  or insight into him but enough to leave you wanting more. So my vote, which I have already expressed to Rachel, is for Ransom to get his own story!  I could easily become Team Ransom :-)

The last interesting twist is the final scene brings us back Reyna, the gypsy girl -- she's what started this whole journey and happy ending so I wouldn't mind either her getting her own story or some how wrapping her story into a book about Ransom. Either way I would like to hear her backstory.

To sum it up:  If you liked the rest of the series, you will love how Rachel wraps the series out and leaves a door open for more! If you have not read this series -- you need to get started as its one you don't want to miss.

Giveaway Details:
1 a handmade sterling silver necklace that retailed over $130. It is an eight petal rose and a replica of the one Lucas gives Cat for Valentine's Day in the book. And 1 rare, signed paperback. US Only.

About Rachel:
As a teen, Rachel Harris threw raging parties that shook her parents’ walls and created embarrassing fodder for future YA novels. As an adult, she reads and writes obsessively, rehashes said embarrassing fodder, and dreams up characters who become her own grown up version of imaginary friends.

She grew up in New Orleans, watching soap operas with her grandmother and staying up late sneak reading her mam's favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life's problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.

She homeschools her two beautiful girls and loves watching reality television with her amazing husband. She writes young adult, new adult, and adult Fun, Flirty Escapes, and LOVES talking with readers!
