Happy-Go-Lucky by L.H. Cosway was simply the sweetest. Maisie is such a darling, a bit too good for the world, and I completely adored her. This girl is always looking at the bright side of life, so dutiful, and I need a more of that in my life. Though at the same time I want to protect her from the world, and kick anyone’s butt who try to take advantage of her or hurt her.
It’s that good natured attitude that makes her sit next to Cameron at the office Christmas party. Grinch of the company, though the best at his job, socialising is not his forte. Cameron is quite the opposite of Maisie. He’s grumpy, doesn’t mince his words, and has the tendency to always think the worst of people.
One amazing sexy drunk night later, and oh how things are awkward. When suddenly they have to work together a lot more, now that it when it all gets really interesting. Maisie and Cameron balance each other out so wonderfully. He can definitely use a big dose of her cheer and optimism, while Maisie is in need of his eff everyone-attitude, and learning to stand up more for herself.
I loved seeing how well these two played off each other. How the more time they spend together, the more they rubbed off on each other, personality wise. An organic flow of a relationship, and attraction that made this a believable romance.
Also I must not forget the whole mystery part of this novel. Maisie and Cameron work for an investigation company, and I was kept guessing until the end on the case they were working. This added a nice little touch of adventure, and even a bit of danger to the story.
For me Happy-Go-Lucky was near romance perfection. It’s the type of book that keeps a little smile on your face from start to end, and leaves you with a feeling of joy.

By L.H. Cosway
Every workplace has that one person you don’t want to mess with.
At James & Peterson Investigations, that would be Cameron Grant: sullen, grouchy, intimidating, oh yeah, and sexy as hell. He can make your soul wither with a single disapproving glare. And he never, ever socialises with his co-workers.
This is why Maisie Wilkins, happy-go-lucky ray of sunshine, can’t fathom why Cameron finally decided to show up at their annual office Christmas party. Every year he received an invite, and every year he failed to attend. But not this year.
Curious as to why he’s there, Maisie can’t resist sitting next to Cameron. Before she knows it, she’s had one too many drinks and is drunkenly hailing a cab back to his place. Office party flings are not something she normally does, but despite his intimidating character, Cameron has a charm she can’t resist. Or maybe it was just those five gin and tonics blurring her judgement.
Whatever the reason, Maisie now has to navigate the awkward, tension filled waters of sharing an office with someone she’s slept with.
