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.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Is it ok if I start this review off by shaming myself? I’m going to. I read The Good Luck Charm way back in June, when I was devouring all the hockey romance in light of the Caps winning the Stanley Cup. I fell totally in love with it. It made me so ridiculously happy, I posted about it a ton on Instagram. But you know what I didn’t do? Review it. So, here we are three months since I read it and I’m FINALLY going to write a review. I’m ashamed.
Second chance romance is my jam and, well, when you mix that with a bit of sports romance I’m one deliriously happy reader. I cheesy grinned and swooned my way through The Good Luck Charm. Sometimes second chance romances can be a little heavy as the couple works through what separated them in the first place. That wasn’t the case with Lilah and Ethan. Things just clicked for them. There was very little time and attention paid to drama in this book. Instead, it was fun, swoony and sexy. They were clearly meant to be and it was obvious in just about every scene.
I loved the characters, the romance and the setting. As a superstitious sports fan myself, I enjoyed reading about it from Ethan’s side and seeing how it affected Lilah. Since I was lucky to read this one prior to publication AND receive a finished copy from the publisher, I snagged the audiobook on release day. The Good Luck Charm is one I’ll reread for a long time to come. I’m already looking forward to reading it again.
I fear my heart remembers loving him more than it remembers how he broke it.
“Just because I left doesn’t mean I ever forgot you, Lilah.”
I’ve never wanted like this. Never felt this level of desperation with anyone but him.
