Falling in love is the ultimate faux pas.
Anything can happen in a year! Unemployed, homeless, and left at the altar, Vivia Perpetua Grant could see her future as a flannel pajama wearing spinster—or worse, a bag lady shuffling around Golden Gate Park. But for a girl obsessed with rock music, Chinese take-out, and the color pink, misfortune is another word for opportunity. Vivia has found her niche as an international travel writer and the long-distance lover of Jean-Luc de Caumont, an über-hot French literature professor and competitive cyclist.
Still, even with so much going right, Vivia can't help but wonder if something isn't missing. The long distance thing is taking its toll on a girl who didn't have that many tokens to begin with. And fate seems to be tempting her at every turn, first with a hunky Scottish helicopter pilot, and then with a British celebrity bad boy...Will Vivia continue to keep it real or will she discover some old habits die hard?

This is one of my favorite romcom series, and the perfect read for brightening your day!
Vivia Perpetua Grant has had an interesting year. After her fiancé left her for one little lie about being a virgin, a sushi roll tattoo procured with a mega star, developing a following doing what she loves (travel writing)and meeting French professor Jean-Luc Caumont, Vivia is questioning whether a long distance relationship with Luc is even worth it. When one little non-Luc kiss makes the twitterverse rounds, her man decrees a break, sending Vivia on a spiral of tears, Scottish whisky and sheep farms. At least Vivia has her BFF's with her…and a very delicious Scottish pilot.
FINDING IT is book 2 in the hysterical It Girl series by Leah Brown, and I'm so glad I finally got the story!! Somehow I missed this one and read book 3 first, which was excellent but sometimes confusing. This filled in so many blanks for me! I absolutely love the humor in this series; Ms. Brown has such a hilarious writing style that kept me cracking up the entire read…Vivia's short stay in the pokey for stalking Prince Harry? Freakin' brilliant!
"I maintain my "Get back, muthafucka" pose until the door closes, and then my bravado fails. My arms and legs begin to tremble. Despite my Boyz in the Hood demeanor, I am no Ice Cube. I've never popped a cap in someone's ass. I've never been in the pokey. I've never even gotten a speeding ticket!
Totally silly and laugh-inducing! With Luc and Vivia on a break, Vivia's antics take a turn for the self-destructive, but she'll do whatever it takes to get back her man. There's a few sweetly sexy scenes, but nothing overtly raunchy in FINDING IT, the real focus being love, friendship, staying true to yourself and figuring out what you want out of life.
Bottom Line: This is such a fab romantic comedy series!
