The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky
In thirty-four days, it will have been exactly two years to the day since I've had sex. Having sex wasn't exactly high on Kat Carmichael's priority list while her successful bakery was taking off, especially since things hadn't been working very well in that department. And the last time she and her boyfriend, Ryan, even attempted the act, they found it to be physically impossible--resulting in pain and disappointment for Kat instead of sunshine and orgasms. With just over a month until their four-year anniversary, Kat calls for a break in her relationship with Ryan, encouraging him to see other people while she throws herself into physical therapy. Yet even with the well-intentioned (but wildly inappropriate) attempts at help from her best friends, Kat quickly discovers that a solo mission may not be the best approach. Fortunately, physical therapist Ben Cleary, the shop's best (looking) customer, volunteers to help out--strictly as a friend, of course. But as the line between love and friendship begins to blur, Kat stands to lose much more than a functioning set of lady bits if she can't figure out what to hang on to...and what to let go.

"The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky is the Cupcake Wars meets The Bloggess. Readers who love hilarious, bawdy humor with a heaping dose of swoon will adore Summer Heacock's special debut!" -Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake and The Simplicity of Cider "Reading The Awkward Path To Getting Lucky is like hanging out with your smartest, funniest, most thoughtful and all-round favorite girlfriend. If you're the kind of intelligent, complicated woman who Leans In at work but watches The Bachelor at home, who does yoga Saturday morning and drinks margaritas Saturday night, who can stand on her own but still wants to be swept off her feet, then this is the comfort read for you." -Gemma Burgess, author of the Brooklyn Girls series "Lighthearted and entertaining, Summer Heacock's debut, The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky, is full of voice and a cast of characters that are side-splitting funny. Between the shenanigans and drool-worthy cupcake descriptions is a modern day exploration of one woman's quest for happily ever after. -- Karma Brown, bestselling author of Come Away with Me and The Choices We Make "Chock-full of hysterical one-liners and strings of profanity, the novel will make readers want to slap the protagonist upside the head with a glitter brush in order for her to come to her senses. A delicious summer treat with just enough sass, sex, and edible glitter." -Library Journal "Undoubtedly memorable, hilariously quirky and surprisingly relatable... Get lucky by making this one-of-a-kind novel part of your summer reading list!" -RT Book Reviews, Top Pick!
