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 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 Ethan in, though, she finds out their reunion might have nothing to do with love and everything to do with improving 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.
Publishers Weekly is raving about it, saying “Hunting sparkles in this well-plotted contemporary about a struggling and superstitious hockey player, his devastated ex-lover, and the hope and joy of second chances.”
They also point out something we loved about the book, which is the attention Hunting gives and fun she has with her secondary characters. “Lively supporting characters, including Lilah’s sassy sister, Carmen, add fun to the mix. Readers will hope for a return to Forest Lake.” You’ll be falling just as hard for her characters as you will for her eye-catching cover perfect for the modern day rom-com fan.
Hunting spoke exclusively with Bookstr about the cover art that’s stealing our hearts, saying
I’m in love with the gorgeous cover for this story! The Good Luck Charm is different in that it has a fresh, illustrated cover, which is very different from my other covers.
Hunting does an amazing job at creating real characters with a real story. Nothing is perfect, but Lilah and Ethan’s rekindled love seems so desirable anyway! Hunting will make you laugh, cry, fall in love, and question whether or not second chance romance really exists (we’re thinking it does). This story is more than just boy-meets-girl, it’s about love lost and found, then somehow getting it back when you’re exactly where you’re suppose to be. Hunting explained the importance of having real characters from a place anybody can call home. “I really loved exploring the setting… I wanted to explore the comfort that comes with familiarity, and how success happens when we surround ourselves with the right people at the right time.”
In the words of New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis, this book is ‘fabulously fun!’, so end your summer on a high note and check out The Good Luck Charm!
