    “Have you been thinking about me, too?” This was such a fast, cute and floofy read. I usually always enjoy Cosway's work and Happy-Go-Lucky was no exception. It was something I cuddled up to with my coffee in the mornings and found myself smiling more often than not. _______________ Banter and Blunders Whilst I enjoyed HGL, it does come with certain cliche and cringey moments. We have our main character Maisie who I thought would grate on my...

    *****FIVE STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}Emotions I’d never felt before swelled inside me: longing, desire, respect, love. Yes, I couldn’t lie to myself any longer. I was falling for this man, drowning in the sea of him and there was no swimming back to the surface. ”HAPPY GO LUCKY” is a light-hearted office romance between a quirky super sweet woman and her gorgeous but grumpy and standoffish co-worker. This was a fun read ...

    Favorite Quotes:I found it weird to think of him having parents, siblings. I was used to imagining him as some sort of perfect-looking vampire who slept in a coffin and consumed only blood. Then again, it was hard to explain the whole daylight thing.Any mention of a man and she got a very specific look in her eye, like a mother in a period drama with a spinster daughter she was eager to marry off.“You know, you might be right. I probably should...

    L.H. Cosway never disappoints! I've been in a bit of a book funk lately but Happy-Go-Lucky easily pulled me out of it. Maisie is a charming, endearing heroine, while Cameron is a somewhat broody, grumpy but likeable hero. No one writes chemistry quite like L.H. Cosway, and these two have it in spades. Humour, sexy romance, and the mystery subplot kept me hooked from start to finish! LOVED IT.

    4.5 Stars!(ARC provided by author)-With Cameron, it was like there were more feelings inside of me than my body was capable of holding. What I felt for him was transcendent, too big and intangible to even put into words. Maisie Wilkins works as the primary researcher at a private investigation firm in the seaside town in England called Torquay. She’s friendly, kind, and constantly cheerful. Her childhood nickname was Happy-go-Lucky, and she was...

    This was such a fun, sweet, smexy read that I could not put it down!Maisie is that perky person in the office that always brings doughnuts, is always smiling, and never seems to have a problem in the world. But inside, she’s insecure and in need of acceptance from those around her. When she sees her grumpy co-worker, Cameron, at the annual Christmas party alone and well, looking grumpy, she sucks up the courage to try to make him feel a part of...

    After reading a very realistic, therefore anxiety-causing book, I thought I'd try another romance novel, lighten my mood. I discovered L.H.Cosway a few years back. I enjoyed a couple of her books. That was three, four novels ago, so I'm beginning to think "I'm getting too oldcynical for romance novels". I don't know what's with the romance novels and the first-person narration, but they just drive me crazy. It doesn't happen with other types of n...

    3.5 cute starsI liked this one. Once you got under Cameron's gruff exterior, he was such a sweetie. (view spoiler)[he's liked her and watched her at the office for a long time! When she asks if he knows her, he recites her whole office routine! (hide spoiler)]

    DNF @80%I cannot continue with this book. Its very repetitive and boring. One of my biggest pet peeves in books is when the author intentionally drags out the suspense of the H and h finally getting together. So you have one quick sex scene at the beginning and then just a bunch of 'heated looks from the hero that made the heroine gasp for breathe' in every chapter. And this goes on for like... 10 chapters. Also, I couldn't connect with the heroi...

    L.H. Cosway strikes again! With Happy-Go-Lucky she provides a funny, smexy and swoony contemporary romance in which to escape in. When the most cranky, brooding and sexy man Maisie Wilkins has ever known shows up at their office Christmas party, her always optimistic disposition compels her to sit with the intimidating and stoic Cameron and after one too many drinks they go back to his place. Can Maisie manage then tension of seeing the man she ...

    This sweet romantic comedy with a twist of a mystery too was one of those books I could not put down. LH Cosway alway writes fantastic characters who clash and enhance each other. The battle for a relationship between these two was unexpected and so fun to watch develop. Grant was gruff, elusive, combative, a loner, and her superior. Maisy was the "happy go lucky girl" always chipper, giving, open and forgiving. But we all know those first looks ...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKHappy-Go-Lucky was an interesting book to read. It had some sweet moments between a woman with a sparkly personality and her complete opposite, a man who most would describe as a grouch, and it had an intriguing mystery that led to so many secrets coming out which kept me captivated. It also had some office drama, but honestly I could have done without that. There were parts to this book that I really enjoyed and lik...

    Even if I read the first part of story in newsletter, it still felt I was reading Happy-Go-Lucky for the first time. And I might have loved it even more for that reason alone.Maisie and Cameron stole my heart. I wasn't sure who I loved more because they were so different but fitted together flawlessly—probably because they were both softies at their cores.Reading this book made me aching for more. More stories about characters in this book, eve...

    3.75 stars.My first L.H.Cosway book and it was a pretty sweet indulgence with it's quintessential British humor and English setting (Torquay, Devon).It had a certain quirkiness to it that I really enjoyed . This book is not really a romantic suspense in the true sense, instead it is more an office romance that also happens to take place in a detective agency with some added action. Loved both MC's.I totally picked this up on a whim and I couldn't...

    Thanks to author for providing this ARC!!!Very cute story, perfect if you looking forward for low angst, safe, great story with humor and some twists and a bit of suspense.Although I've read about 50% through author's email, it's not comfortable to read that way. Yes, I prefer reading my books in one sit.Hero I loved: swoon, perfect, tender, caring, a bit possessive, sexy, sometimes broody!!! I love the way he was "eye opener" for heroine, althou...

    I wanted to love this one. It features one of my favorite tropes: cheery MC overwhelms grumpy MC with light and love...but, it just didn't fully work for me.The beginning is promising, and I found myself relating to the female MC. She is told that she smiles too much, and I have had that very same comment leveled at me. Both of us are people-pleasers, but where I struggle with my need to please, this MC seemingly overcomes her insecurities quickl...

    2,5 sThe romance and angst were almost non existent! Although Cameron and Maisie were great characters, their relationship developed at a snail’s pace. The writer tried to balance the aspects of mystery and romance, but the whole story for me felt flat and with no sparks. 2,5 🤔 🐌 ⭐️sThe romance and angst were almost non existent!

    ***5 Stars*** I didn’t read any of the chapters that went out in the author’s newsletter, so I went in absolutely blind and I have to say, I absolutely loved this story. It was sweet, funny, awkward, frustrating, adorkable, smexy, swoonworthy and with just the right amount of drama to keep things interesting, it was simply a fun read overall.Maisie, Maisie, Maisie. This woman. It’s really hard not to like Maisie, even when you’re scratchi...

    Maisie’s bubbliness was part of her charm, but her intelligence was what I liked most. And while, Cameron was a grump, he was extremely observant and honest to a fault. However, even he couldn’t withstand Maisie’s sunshiny disposition:)The romance was subtle and slow, but very good! I liked the interactions-whether it was work or play-because I never knew if funny, steamy, or in the moment was coming up next- I just knew I’d be grinning l...

    I love this author so very much! She writes the most beautiful romances with wonderful characters that are real. Our heroine is the happy and nice girl we all know. She's almost always cheerful and forgiving. Instead of making most people even more grumpy she brings out the best in them. Except for a few that is. But can she help the grumpiest guy in the office find his happy. Well...outside of the one night stand they had, that is. Great stor...

    4 Stars Here is the story of Cameron, which I've been waiting for since I read his sister Ellen's book in Fauxmance and let me say that this book was great and left me with a smile from start to finish.In this book we can see Cameron and Maisie's novel, which on the surface seems to be opposites in every way, but when we know them we see that they are just two people who have more in common than they imagine, they just deal with it differently.Wh...

    This book had me by the heart almost immediately! The office grump meets the office ray of sunshine? Yes. Sign me up. All day long.Maisie was adorably quirky, upbeat, and…well…happy-go-lucky. I loved her sunny-nature and plucky spirit. I loved even more, how helpless Cameron was against her charms. I loved how he was drawn to her, even if it was initially against his will. I loved how she softened him, opened him up, and won his heart. I love...

    James & Peterson Investigations is filled with the same diverse characters you’d find in every office environment. This story concentrates on the people pleaser Maisie Wilkins, who has had her perma smile since birth, and surly Cameron Grant, who makes it his daily duty to maintain his unfriendly reputation.Following Cameron’s appearance at the Christmas party, Maisie finds herself overly interested in why he would entertain them with his pre...
