Oh man, I just loved this book. Can I simply leave my review at that? Bad Bachelor was such a pleasant surprise for me earlier this year. I thought it would be more of a romantic comedy, but it surprised me by bringing forward not only an entertaining romance but also thought-provoking discussions about the state of social media. Finding out that Bad Reputation was set in the theater/ballet world just about sealed the deal for me and I was giddy with excitement. This book delivered on every front and I know I'm going to have the hardest time pointing out why exactly this book resonated with me.

  • Surviving Adam Meade sounded like it would be a fun hate-to-love romance, and you guys know I'm all over that. I picked this one up with some high expectations, especially after reading a couple of rave reviews, but I never entirely clicked with the book.

An Angst-Free Second Chance Romance: The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting

THE GOOD LUCK CHARM

by Helena Hunting
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Adult
Publisher: Forever
Publication Date: August 7th 2018

I'm a sucker for a good second chance romance. In fact, besides the opposites-attract trope, I think it's my favorite romance trope. Anytime I see a book that even fleetingly mentions a second-chance romance, I'm all over it. I love the angst, the growth the characters undergo while apart, and the intensified love the second time around. The Good Luck Charm sounded right up my alley because of that. While not the typical second-chance romance that I am normally used to, this book still had me swooning in delight.
