Book Review: Chasing Lucky by Jenn Bennett

I loved Chasing Lucky for one reason. It is simple and pretty straightforward. Usually Home to this genre, the book was amazingly devoid of unnecessary angst or complications that was just there for the purpose of brewing trouble and not an actual issue. I would also totally understand if somebody says that they didn’t like the book for the same reason. Most of the romances are kind of stretched high to a point where there is a lot of trouble brewing and it is chaos and tragedy all over the place. While some salvage everything at the last moment magically another let it end with a painful note. This book too had troubles and chaos of a relationship but I loved how it was treated very gently. It was none of the “Jack ….Come back Jack…Don’t leave me Jack…while you are easily floating on a massive ice chunk and let the other guy froze to become a human ice cream”

Chasing Lucky Official Synopsis

Budding photographer Josie Saint-Martin has spent half her life with her single mother, moving from city to city. When they return to her historical New England hometown years later to run the family bookstore, Josie knows it’s not forever. Her dreams are on the opposite coast, and she has a plan to get there.

What she doesn’t plan for is a run-in with the town bad boy, Lucky Karras. Outsider, rebel…and her former childhood best friend. Lucky makes it clear he wants nothing to do with the newly returned Josie. But everything changes after a disastrous pool party, and a poorly executed act of revenge lands Josie in some big-time trouble—with Lucky unexpectedly taking the blame.

Determined to understand why Lucky was so quick to cover for her, Josie discovers that both of them have changed, and that the good boy she once knew now has a dark sense of humor and a smile that makes her heart race. And maybe, just maybe, he’s not quite the brooding bad boy everyone thinks he is…

Chasing Lucky RWAT Take

The book is a simple and cutest love story that is sans unnecessary dramas. At least I felt the things that transpired in the book was something that we can see in a real-life situation. The troubles that brew up seemed genuine and a natural progression to the story and not created for the purpose of creating a twist and I liked that about the story flow

It is very light and simple and totally grasping that I was down with the book in one go. It just flowed from one scene to another scene so elegantly and nicely that it kept me hooked and absolutely in the flow of the story. The characters were not yours over the top Greek God, Alpha male or down under the earthly goody girl. Its characters that all have their flaws and moments and that makes it easily relatable and absorbing.


Chasing Lucky in my opinion is a good weekend read. A perfect candy floss romance that can make you laugh, cry and dwell in the romance. So a good getaway read for that lazy afternoon or a beachside read.
