The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting [arc review]

This was the usual Feel Good Romance that Helena Hunting writes so well! It is no secret that I love
her books and The Good Luck Charm did not disappoint.

"I was trying to be logical, because God knows nothing about the way I loved you was rational..."

Here is the Book Blurb:
Is it love, or is she just his good luck charm? New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting absolutely delights with this witty and fun standalone contemporary romance. 


Lilah isn't sure what hurt worse: the day Ethan left her to focus on his hockey career, or the day he came back eight years later. He might think they can pick up just where they left off, but she's no longer that same girl and never wants to be again. 

Ethan Kane wants his glory days back. And that includes having Lilah by his side. With her, he was magic. They were magic. All he has to do is make her see that. 

Just when Lilah might finally be ready to let him in, though, she finds out their reunion has nothing to do with her and everything to do with his game. But Ethan's already lost her once, and even if it costs him his career, he'll do anything to keep from losing her again.




3 Stars ⭐⭐⭐

The Good Luck Charm was a feel good second chance romance. I got sucked into Lilah's and Ethan's love story from the very beginning. Lilah's just had a horrible day and to have to face Ethan in the end of it wasn't easy. It was so sweet though, it is obvious within seconds that they have chemistry and that whatever happened that broke them apart 8 years ago has not diminished how they feel for each other.

I loved Lilah from the getcko. It was impossible not to sympathies with the girl after the day she had, everything that could have gone wrong did. It was a funny first few paragraphs for sure.
She has not had an easy life but she has kept her had high, picked up the pieces of her heart when Ethan broke it all those years ago, and kept on moving. Her compassion and determination made her an easy character to love.

Ethan is perhaps the reason I am not giving it a higher rating. I liked him in the end, but for the most part he came across a little selfish and self centered. Putting his needs above hers at every opportunity. She gives him room to be the way he is with her, but when she finally stands up for herself and asks him to help her by letting her study he still ignores her needs. He redeemed himself towards the end, but a little too late for me.

The secondary characters were all interesting and I am here wondering if there will ever be books on them. I certainly hope so!

All in all it was a very sweet and witty book. I missed some big moment, some passionate event, something to make it more memorable. But it was solid like everything else Helena Hunting writes. I  will read just about anything that comes from her wonderful imagination.

Go Read!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
