Felicity feels that she is socially inept. When Lucas, the hot teacher in the seat next to her on the plane, talks to her and asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend for his brother's wedding to stop his ex making a move. In exchange she asks him for pointers on how to flirt and capture her own man. Neither of them plan on the sizzling chemistry between them.
I enjoyed Her Perfect Game when I read it last October, and so I knew that I would enjoy Her Winning Formula as well. I actually loved it, with Felicity as a strong female character and went for what she wanted. I wasn't expecting that and so having her act like that really worked for me.
There was just something about Felicity. She was nerdy in her own way, but at the same time she was strong and knew what she wanted. Not completely at ease at people, it was possible to see her growing throughout the story and falling for Lucas at the same time.
Lucas on the other hand wasn't quite as developed over the story. He knew what he wanted from the beginning; Felicity. He schemed a little bit to get her but it was massively cute. I liked the way that he was gentlemanly at the same time as wanting to be completely male.
This wasn't a majorly long read, but it was cute and fun!
