Experience the hilarity and heartache of first love and second chances in a sexy new romantic comedy from the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series.

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 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 Ethan in, though, she finds out their reunion might have nothing to do with love and everything to do with improving 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.

My thoughts…

Lilah and Ethan dated in high school. They were in love and it was serious, at least that’s what Lilah thought. Ethan left after he graduated to focus on his hockey career. They had plans to be together once she graduated, until the day Ethan called and broke her heart.

Now, it's eight years later and Lilah has a fulfilling career as nurse at the local hospital. She also just signed divorce papers from a six-year marriage. She stayed close to Ethan's family, so close that she lived with his parents for a bit when she and her husband separated. I did find her relationship with Ethan’s parents heartwarming and how they treated her as if she was their daughter.

Ethan moves back to Minnesota to play for his home team. The attraction between them is still there, but Lilah is having a hard time trusting that Ethan wouldn’t leave her behind once again when his hockey career picks back up. Ethan is determined to ger Lilah back.

The Good Luck Charm was just an okay read for me. I felt that Lilah gave into Ethan too soon and easily took him back as if the past eight years didn’t happen. I wanted Ethan to beg and plead for Lilah to give him a second chance. Ethan was overly needy and selfish, I understood the struggles Lilah had trying to juggle her studies, work, and Ethan. I’m happy that Lilah finally realized that she couldn’t lose herself again, she needed to put herself and wants first.

I have a feeling that future books will feature Lilah's sisters, who I truly liked.

Happy Reading!
