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.
My Not So Super Sweet Life (MYNSSSL) is the final book of the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century and I am so sad to see this end. MYNSSSL is a perfect ending for this series!
This review will be short because I don’t want to mention any spoilers! But I loved that MNSSSL was written in two point-of-views – Cat and Lucas. This was a great way to learn more about Lucas, who is a sweet and romantic guy! Lucas is also struggling with his relationship with his parents, so it is made clear the connection he has with Cat. It is truly fate that brings them together and they heal each other. MYNSSSL also focuses on Cat’s insecurities because of her mom, which at times I did sympathize but also felt like throttling her. Rather than focusing on all the negative emotions as a result of her mom, Cat really needs to look around and see all the good she has. I loved seeing Alessandra (Less) and Austin make small appearances in the story, but I wish there was more of them. Less and Austin are comedic and I miss them! I also loved getting to know Jenna. Maybe it’s because I am a mother of a teenager, but just seeing the bond Jenna and Cat have made was priceless.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. This gives us closure for Cat’s story but also left it wide open for a future spin-off (which I hope the author will do soon!!). The author’s writing was perfect and I love the humor she adds to her story. This series is a fun and emotional ride, and I highly suggest this to everyone!!
