Free Friday Book Review: The Hot Girl’s Friend by Lisa Scott
The Hot Girl’s Friend


Get it at: add to goodreads

This sassy short story packed a fun punch.  It is the second one I’ve read by Lisa Scott and I just love what she can do with a short story format.

Jane is the consummate best friend of the beautiful vivacious girl.  Jane’s got her own looks and sparkle going on, but she can’t see it and feels constantly eclipsed by her friend.  While out together at a bar, Jane is doing her job helping to fend off unwanted guys from Miranda when she finds herself enjoying the time spent with the bartender, Brady.  He’s fun and helps her and better yet, he doesn’t seem to want Miranda.

Brady sets out on a quest to show Jane that she’s got what it takes to get a guy by taking her bet that he can’t find someone nice who wants to date her.  Jane takes that bet and starts out on this new venture with Brady.  She could have told him that no guys would measure up because he was around, but she is afraid to find out for sure that he really is only being friendly.

As I said, this was a fun read.  Jane is the narrator and it is obvious from the get-go to the reader that she isn’t catching onto the clues well when it comes to Brady.  It was cute to discover that the flirtatious Miranda isn’t as shallow as she seems.  I really enjoyed watching how Jane and Brady’s chemistry worked so well.

It was a fun, feel-good happy read that I recommend to someone to fill a nice little slot in their busy day.

Delighted Reader Afternoon Delight

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

  • Wow, the cover currently up on Amazon gives such a different impression from this one.

    • Yep, but the Barnes and Noble and Goodreads covers were from this one. It seems like you find the right cover and then someone has a different one, lol.

    I got this one last year and this was the cover it had then. It’s definitely a ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ story. Haha!
