    You Only Get One Soul Mate

    The Good Luck Charm is such a witty, sweet, and heartfelt romance. It is the fusion of some of my very favorite tropes. Sports romance - check Second Chance - check Childhood Friends to Lovers - check I was sucked right into Lilah and Ethan's story and couldn't wait to unravel their tangled history. You can feel the connection between these two immediately. 8 years may have passed, but it's clear that neither of them has truly forgotten the other. As the secrets of the past are revealed, my heart broke for all the lost time and pain these two caused each other. Though I wouldn't necessarily classify The Good Luck Charm as a romcom, there are still plenty of laughs and lighthearted moments to balance the more emotional scenes. I'll be honest that it took me a bit to warm up to Ethan. He seemed selfish and self serving for a good part of the book, and acted like he could just waltz right back into Lilah's life with some candy and a smirk. He's not fully to blame though since Lilah did enable his behavior for the most part (after some resistance), as a result of her own fears and insecurities. As the book progresses though, both characters mature and truly come into their own. I loved that Lilah recognized that they were headed down the wrong path and took steps (however painful) to create balance. As much as their past trauma and present day issues hurt my heart, I appreciated the honest portrayal of young and all consuming love and the message that in a relationship, both parties need to be fulfilled individually in addition to together. There were some fun secondary characters introduced in the book that I hope we will see more of in the future (ahem, Carmen and Noah!) and I wouldn't mind one bit if we ever got an extended epilogue ;) I really enjoyed this second chance romance and can't wait for everyone to fall for Lilah and Ethan too! 4.5 stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Such Good Read. Real Life 2 So Many of Us

    Author Helena Hunting is one of my favorite authors to read especially when it comes to romcoms that have to deal with hockey. Oh who am I kidding. If she writes it...I will read it. And Ethan and DJ or Lilah's story as she is called 8 years later is as good as the Puck series where I originally found Ms Hunting. In this book we have Ethan a lovable but insecure hockey player who thought he was doing the right thing by breaking up with his high school girlfriend when he got drafted by the NHL. Oh yes this was on advice of his father whom he never listened to in the past. That girlfriend whom he broke up with via phone was DJ or Lilah. She had grown up in his home as one of the family and to lose that well that is hard. She marries another and goes to nursing school. Fast forward 8 years and Ethan's back in town playing hockey. His dad has a stroke and Lilah is newly divorced. Life is set in motion or is it? What a wonderful read that speaks to real life as so many of us life and know it in the real world. As in true style of Ms Hunting we get lots of good times, reads and of course we get twists and turns. This book is a standalone but I hope we get more from this family in the future as I am wanting Carmen and Dr Lovely and yep I want Emery and have a deep feeling that Tyler Kase fits into her life somewhere in the future.

    Timing is everything!

    I don't think of this story as a second chance, it is way more of a waiting for the right time, love story. See, while Ethan and Lilah were perfect back as children, teenages, and young adults, looking back, even they realized they needed time apart, because it would have fallen apart anyways. That being said, this is a feel good, story. It is full of emotions, good and bad, but there is a positivity emanating from every action and reaction. These are two people who are completely and totally in love and devoted to each other, they just need to find a way to fit that into their lives. I was left smiling, grinning really, and warmth filled my very soul when they figured everything out!
