Description from
Pandora Ann Phillips' life is just normal-crazy

Her mom's a psychic, her dad's mom is a snob, her mom's parental units are "too down to earth" and her best friends are newlyweds. Okay, so her best friends being newlyweds isn't really abnormal, but living with them in a cramped two-bedroom apartment definitely is. Sex, sex, sex is totally on their minds. Actually it's not only on their minds, but it's on the kitchen table, couch, on top of the washer...well, you get the picture.

Being a celibate (not by choice, mind you) full-time college student, and an almost full-time barista, Pandora can't afford to lose anymore sleep. So, she seeks out a new place to lay her head. Enter three "drool worthy" male models that are looking for a fourth roommate and they want her...and won't take no for an answer.

Hilarity ensues as Pandora's life turns completely upside down, and she begins to wonder if it will ever be the same again!
Lucky Number Four was such a fun read. I really enjoyed the mystery of trying to figure out who the masked guy was, and I'm really happy with who it turned out to be. The characters in this story were really well developed, and I liked their voices. They each had a very distinct personality, and accent, and it was very fun getting to know each of them. I absolutely loved each of the characters, especially the guys. It was neat to see a different side to how "the other half" lives.

The way that this story opens up really gives you a peek into how the rest of the story is going to go. It is chock full of funny and embarrassing moments, but it is also filled with heartwarming, heart breaking, and swoon worthy moments as well. I really liked our main character, Pandora, even though there were a couple times when I just wanted to shake her. She really made some rash, dumb decisions, and I wish she wasn't so stubborn. She really should have listened to her friends in some situations, but of course she didn't lol.

There was one, tiny problem that I found with this story. I found it to be a little cheesy at times. It wasn't all cheesy, but there were definitely times when I wanted to roll my eyes or laugh when I shouldn't have. Luckily, that didn't ruin the book as a whole.

I really enjoyed Lucky Number Four. Unfortunately, I did find some parts pretty cheesy, but I still liked it as a whole. The characters were really well developed and I could easily tell what character was talking. I could even  hear their voices in my head and had to double check while writing this review that I didn't listen to an audio version. Pandora was a great main character, and she didn't portray a "perfect" girl. Pandora had her flaws and owned them. I really enjoyed the ending and even teared up a little. The story is a little cheesy and corny towards the end, but I do enjoy that kind of thing.
