Review: Lucky Numbers by GG Carver



Publication Date: July 12, 2015


Series: Standalone


Rating: 5 Stars 





Official Blurb: Lucy Eaton had a job she loved as a Teaching Assistant at a Special Needs School and a boyfriend who struggled with commitment issues. Life was good, not great, but good, until one day Lady Luck paid Lucy a visit and a life that most people could only dream of opened up to her. With the creases of every day life ironed out, she could sit back and live the dream. 
But what if that dream doesn’t turn out to be what you thought you wanted? 
Want and need are two very different things. The head wants, but the heart needs, and as generous and fortuitous as life can be, it can also be incredibly cruel. No one gets to live a creaseless life. That is something Lucy will soon discover.




Review: This was my first book by GG Carver and I loved every minute! It literally grabbed me right from the start with Lucy and the fortuneteller. From that very moment, I was trying to piece together the parts the lady told her but then nothing was happening. Actually everything was falling into place for her and her boyfriend Mark. Everything they could have ever wanted was laid at their feet. But things don’t always stay that way. Over time people’s feelings change and sometimes it’s hard to continue to sweep feelings under the rug.

I loved Lucy. She is such a sweet and compassionate person and would do anything for anyone. Mark on the other hand… WOW he was something else that’s for sure. I stayed so mad at him for over 90% of the book. Then when Lucy least expects it George and Joseph enter her life. From this point on, things are a struggle for Lucy. Not only was Lucy fighting her feelings, Mark was also hiding things, and Joseph was fighting his own demons. There were times I didn’t think anyone would get an HEA. There are also parts that made my heart hurt so bad… especially a little boy named Sam. I don’t like to give away spoilers so you definitely have to read this story to get the full effect of everything. One-minute things are going great and then BAM all of a sudden my emotions were just all over the place. I read this book within just a few hours because I needed to know what was going to happen. The last 10% made my heart skip a beat. This is a fantastic book and I look forward to the next book from GG!
