Samantha Lytton, foiler of evildoers and roller-skate enthusiast, is back! What has she been up to since the events of THE DIMPLE OF DOOM? No big whoop-just being a movie star. Samantha has just arrived in London to film her first leading role. Sam, would-be Picasso thief and lover, joins her to rev up her engine in the bad-boy way only he can. Life is full of sexy good times, money, and prestige galore! What could go wrong? Ha ha-everything. After a kidnapping attempt, Sam nobly dumps Samantha for her own good, the jerk. No matter, for Samantha is a successful woman of the world now and (after only spending one day lying on the floor and sobbing on her cheeseburgers) she jumps back into actress-mode with her sexy co-star Daniel Zhang. Hot movie star = best rebound ever. She barely even thinks about what's-his-name-until his evil ex-girlfriend shows up and gives Samantha an ultimatum she just can't refuse: steal a priceless artefact from the museum or die. Is Sam in cahoots with the wicked ex? Can Samantha rob a museum and film a movie simultaneously? And why isn't a lady allowed to marry both a gorgeous Oscar-winner and an equally alluring criminal?...

The Dimple Strikes Back Reviews
At the end of book one, The Dimple of Doom, I wasn’t sure where things stood between Sam and Samantha. After the debacle of a caper in book one Sam had to leave Samantha..but as book two opens we find out he was never far and that they’ve been hooking up on the side as Samantha’s acting career has taken off.The Dimple Strikes back is just as manic has the first book and at times seems like Woodull was on something when she wrote it. It’s hilarious and basically like a giant stream of consciousnesses from Samanatha’s perspective. Her writing style is definitely something you have to get used to and it can pull you from the story if you let it, but overall I enjoyed this romp into craziness.Sam is trying his best to get out of the thief business as Samantha shoots a move in England with an incredibly sexy co-star who seems to want to sweep her off her feet. Past business partners of Sam are intent on keeping him in the life by threatening Samantha’s life and it seems to be working. He’s still secretive and you never know what is really going on in his head at any given time. As Samantha bumbles through the attacks, her movie production and yet another thieving caper she also finds out more about Sam than she knew before…which is awesome since she knew very little.There are points in the book that dragged and I really wish Sam would stop leaving Samantha “for her own good” because when they weren’t together I was less invested in the story line. I’m less interested in her budding movie career but love that it opens a bunch of new doors and locales that would have been closed had she still worked in some office building on the west coast of the US. I’m not sure where Woodhull plans to take these characters but honestly, that’s the best part. The unknown because with this author it can go anywhere.Lucy Woodhull is an author you need to experience to understand. Her funny, energetic take on writing will make you laugh and swoon while constantly keeping you on edge.I give The Dimple Strikes Back by Lucy Woodhull 3.75 stars!
How much do I love Lucy Woodhull!! Things are little darker for Sam and Sam the second time around. Loved that Samantha was determined to hold on to her career. Loved that Sam wanted her to succeed. Loved that Samantha was apologetically attracted to her hot co-star. Loved that Sam was vulnerable and wasn't afraid to show it to Samantha. Lucy masterfully handled the tension of the couple as they experienced a rough patch and turned the emotional payoff up to 11 at the end. Please let there be a book 3!!
I LOVE this book! The Dimple of Doom is one of my top 5 favorite books and the next book in the series, The Dimple Strikes Back did not disappoint. This book has everything, humor, suspense, romance, sexy times - just everything! Samantha Lytton is one of my all-time favorite book heroines- strong and funny. I already want to reread it because it was so good. I love books like this that are so funny you can't help but laugh out loud!! Really great book with a great story!! Fantastic! Highly Recommend!
The Dimple Strikes Back is a fun read. The Dimple of Doom was a great first book in the series. The Dimple Strikes Back holds onto to the same banter, humor and heartfelt emotions of the first. Though there were times it seemed over the top and you had to just go with it, the story kept me engaged and wanting more. Samantha and Sam go through some intense trials in their relationship mainly due to trust issues. Sam really made me fall for him all over again. He really wore his feelings for Samantha on his sleeve. Samantha does a lot of growing as character in this book. I also love how she treasures her relationship with her best friend, Ellen. Example:"I knew I had to tell Ellen....No way I could hide such a thing from my soulmate."There is some mad cap danger with exciting and funny consequences. I recommend this book highly if you are looking for a good romantic comedy.
Details would be spoilers, and that's rude. Suffice to say I was laughing out loud all alone on one of the pseudo-comfy chairs in a Starbucks. Samantha is without a doubt my favorite book hero. I typically don't give any book more than four stars. The fifth star here is well deserved, and at least 90% due to hot-realistic-hot-hot sex, which is also realistic. Uh, yes. What am I writing abo....yes. Review. Such as.
I liked this one - not quite as much as the first. A little toooo over the top - but still damn funny. This author can crack me up like no one else. Review coming
