She was the last girl you’d ever see in a bar.
But one night, under those neon lights,
Lucky and Katie found each other.
Beginnings are always exciting.
Always fun. Always hopeful.
Katie was in her last year of college.
Lucky was still playing local stages.
She fell for his voice. She fell for his words.
They fell in love.
It was beautiful.
But time changed their world.
She was alone. He was on the road.
And that love was torn apart.
Endings are always painful.
Always heart wrenching.
But not always final.
One day, Lucky came back to Katie.
And this is their story.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I don’t think I’ll ever get over this book. Ever. It’s been DAYS since I finished. And my heart literally continues to beat over it.
“You’re funny. And beautiful. And sometimes I forget to breathe when I look at you.”
Katie Jenson is the girl that plays it safe. She doesn’t take risks until she lands her eyes on up and coming country singer, Landon “Lucky” Evans. When Lucky approaches Katie, it’s like its just the two of them in the same room. You feel the moment they both realize they know life will never be the same. With Lucky’s career, he’s gone a lot. But by spending time together, they realize what they have they’ve never felt before and want to explore it more. You as a reader are simply immersed in the most beautiful and epic love story. You are placed within their hearts. And in their hearts is the only way to truly understand their story and how they came to be.
“We are the Center of the Universe and nothing else matters. All the chaos out there is gone. It’s just you and me.”
But life happens. And things change. Their love is challenged in the most honest and painful ways possible. As life pushes, their love pushes back. Every time. Until love is what breaks them. Tears them apart. But love always goes where it belongs. And Lucky comes back. Because their love never faltered. Never wavered. Despite the darkness that overcame them, their love prevailed. And this? This is their heartbreaking and earth shattering love story.
“You were never just a small piece of my life. From the moment we met, you became my whole world. And even when you were not in that world, I still loved you.”
Lucky and Katie’s love transcends. Their love is incomparable. Boundless. Infinite. They love loudly. Deeply. Their love is resounding. Powerful. Turbulent. It was a privilege to read a love like theirs. Lucky loves with all he is. With his eyes, his smile, his actions, but most of all, his heart. His love is magic. Spellbinding. This epic story will consume you. Overwhelm you. But you’ll want nothing more than to be in the middle of this stunning book.
“I love you. Deeply and madly. I love you in a way that can’t be captured in music. And I will probably spend the rest of my life trying.”
Can we just talk about the writing?! The words of this book are straight poetry. It reads like the most beautiful love song you’ve ever heard. The author masterfully breathes life into this story with her song lyrics that are so effortlessly placed throughout the book. I was speechless. Blown away. This kind of talent is incomparable. She evokes so much emotion and meaning with every single word. The declarations of love between Katie and Lucky will leave you breathless. The pacing of this story was perfect with its hypnotizing prose and engaging storyline.
“You’ll always be in here. No matter what happens out there. No matter where I go. You’ll be the only one in here.”
My Lucky Days is easily a favorite read of mine this year. This compelling story will stay with me for a very long time. You have not read this story before. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever read. The author has a special voice and it’s displayed within her characters, especially Lucky and Katie. Their life changing love story enthralled me, captivated me, and stole my heart. This is a definite must read.
I woke up sometime later to the sound of my phone buzzing next to me. Peering at the screen, I saw Lucky’s name. I answered with a grin. “Hey.”
I imagined him sitting in his house in Nashville with his sexy smile and messy hair. And that image was better than all the other images I’d had today.
“Did I wake you up?”
“No, I’m watching TV. Well, I kind of fell asleep in here, I guess.” I glanced at the clock, and it said one-thirty in the morning.
“So you are sleeping on the couch instead of out with your roommates?”
“How do you know they aren’t home?”
I heard his chuckle. “Same reason I know you are wrapped in a brown blanket.”
I jumped up from the couch and spun around in a circle. And then I saw Lucky, looking into the house through the dining room window. The rush I felt was bigger than I expected. A high that drowned out all the other feelings. “How long have you been watching me?”
“Well, long enough to see that you probably snore because your mouth was wide open. And I think you drool too.”
“No . . .” I shut my eyes. “Get in here.”
I hung up and went to the door. He was already on the steps by the time I had it open.
“So I was in the neighborhood.” He grinned. “Thought I would stop by.”
The flutters in my chest held me captive. Lucky might be the star, but right now, I felt like all the lights in the world had shifted their focus onto me.
Before I could say a word, Lucky pulled me into his arms as he kissed me hard, grinding his mouth against mine. He was holding me, running his hands over my body, into my hair, against my cheek.
I knew in that moment, the inevitable lonely ache that was destined to follow our relationship would be worth the torment—if those days allowed me to experience this mind-consuming rush of happiness that came each time he returned home.
