BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Lucky One (Carolina Connections # 3) by Sylvie Stewart

Book details:

The Lucky One
by Sylvie Stewart
(Carolina Connections)
Publication date: May 11th 2017
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance


When your luck runs out, do you run away—or do you stay and fight?

Let’s get one thing straight. I am not your typical girl. Sure I’ve got all the parts, but I’ve been a stubborn, irreverent tomboy since the womb, as my Irish father would proudly attest. Despite my Irish blood, I’ve had a bit of bad luck here and there—I recently trusted the wrong guy and got derailed in my professional pursuits. But I’ve bounced back. With my shields firmly in place, I thought nothing, or no one, could touch me again. Until he did. And he just might make this tomboy do the girliest thing in the world—fall head over heels in love. Of all the damn luck…

I’m a pretty lucky guy. I have a phenomenal family, a career I love, and I’m building a brand-new life back in my hometown. And, not to be a jerk about it, but I do more than all right with the ladies. Everything’s been going according to plan—like I said, I’m a lucky guy.

That was, until my luck ran out.

Until I met the girl I call “Irish.”

Irony can go kiss my a$$.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This was a really sweet book! It was fun, feisty, romantic, and hilarious. These characters are ones to follow and have the ability to burrow themselves into your heart, whether you want them to or not.

The two main characters in this story had some pretty sizzling chemistry and this entire story would have been on sizzling romance had the female lead not been so stubborn. However, I think that made this story that much better.  The chase and the back and forth made for a fun read. The little details kept your reading and kept you on the edge of your seat.

I have one complaint and it was enough to lower my review rating but I still absolutely adored the story!! My one complaint is the way the author told the first half of the story, with the present and the past. I understand it was done to give us readers more detail but at times it was confusing as to which part of the time frame I was reading. Sometimes I had to go back a little bit just to get my mind set straight.

These are character’s you’ll want to follow and a story, as a whole, you’ll want to read. While these are stand alone books I think it would be good to read them all together just to keep up with each character and to get the natural flow of all the stories.

I would absolutely recommend this story to you, It was a fun, sweet, charming read and one I rather enjoyed!
