    Ummm.. I seriously don't even know what I just read? My last read of 2017.. and wow was it a terrible read. I don't know if I would classify this as a romance or a mystery? This book was nothing that I expected it to be like AT ALL. Ok.. can we say dysfunctional family?! OH M GEEEE. There were so many things wrong with this book.. I can't even get my thoughts together to write this review. "They call themselves "the lucky ones"... umm more like d...

    So I started The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz when a terrible book slump took over me. Yes, it’s a sickness. So, I had to put the book down until it was over. Once I picked it back up I couldn’t stop reading it. I just needed to know what happened.Allison grew up in a foster home in Oregon, a home that looked like a dragon if you looked at it just right. Dr. Capello was a single foster father. He brought in kids who needed him and who didn’t...

    I still don’t 100% know what to say about The Lucky Ones. So many things happened, and I’m still on a bit of a book high from that ending. So I’ll just say this. This story is the perfect mixture of mystery, thriller, and romantic suspense. I didn’t know what to focus on until the very end... and even then I did not see what was coming. All in all a fantastic read that will have you questioning is the risk always worth the reward, and are...

    I swear, it doesn't matter what Tiffany Reisz writes- be it her BDSM series, The Original Sinners, or Mysterious books like The Night Mark, The Bourbon Thief, or this- The Lucky Ones, everything shines with her for me. The Lucky Ones is tagged in General Fiction (Adult) but rest assured, there's a romance element to it, as well as a hefty dose of Mystery/Suspense. It's got it all.The book takes place in coastal Oregon. In a house that freakishly ...

    This book starts with Allison and Cooper talking. She's been his 'mistress' for six years and now he's ending things, because he's having a baby with someone else. (Readers of The Bourbon Thief might remember Cooper and Paris!).And while Cooper is with Allison, she opens a letter from her past.When she was seven, her mother died, and she was taken to a foster home where she didn't really fit in - but she didn't stay long - she was soon taken home...

    When you pick up one of Reisz's books you know that you are going to get something so well written that even the taboo and almost scandalous topics inside of it are going to be made into something you understand and almost support. She has a way with settings, words and people, that you forget wrong is right and right is wrong and yet despite all that, she still pulls off a wonderfully told, wonderfully narrated story that not only makes you thin...

    **ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review**4.5 stars"Too many secrets in this house. So many they were starting to feel like...Lies."The blurb of The Lucky Ones was one that really piqued my interest. I had no idea what to expect, but I was ready for a mysterious ride. I loved how the secrets were revealed piece by piece. The author did such an incredible job in keeping the reader in suspense and guessing throughout the book. I...

    The Lucky Ones gave me goosebumps. Both the good kind and the even better kind... Reisz' writing keeps getting better and better, and this incredibly well-written, character-driven story left me with all the feels.

    Not sure how I feel about this, need to think about it. It didn't wow me.

    When it comes to having my mind blown, I can trust in Ms. Reisz. Full disclosure, she is an auto read author. I do not even look at the book blurb. I see her name and grab the book. Going in blind is sometimes the best experience. I had no expectations and figured it would be a kinky romance or perhaps a bit different perspective of contemporary romance. If you are expecting erotica, kink or happy contemporary romance, walk away. This book is an ...

    This was my first book by this author. There were a few things that made me uncomfortable - (view spoiler)[ too much sex, too much sex with her brother, and too much sex with her brother who is a monk (hide spoiler)]. I was engaged in the story and had to discover if I was correct. It really brought new ideas to what it means to be a family. What exactly constitutes a family? Do bonds go beyond blood, time and location? It also looked at the orig...

    First off, Tiffany Reisz is always a must on my to-read list – there is no book of hers that I wouldn’t read, and so far I haven’t been disappointed.As usual, I won’t tell you much about the plot or what the book is about. I’m a firm believer in experiencing books without much upfront knowledge. I'll only tell you this: don’t expect a light-hearted fluffy romance. There are those elements, but there is so much more to it.But I will te...

    This was a strange book...actually rather weird and mysterious. A horrific take on a very dysfunctional ‘family’ with a gothic twist. It honestly wasn’t much to my reading tastes; and I put it down and picked it up numerous times. I wasn’t particularly enjoying the read; but intrigued enough in what was going on that I finally started skimming to get to the end. Once I did, I can’t really say whether it was worth it. It was such a downe...

    Fantastic story - one that will stay with me for a long time. Reisz has yet again proven to be on top of her game, The Lucky Ones is a great story in which secrets are kept for the sake of happiness. The Lucky Ones brings a lot to the table, deception, lies, heart break, love and 2nd chances. I can't recommend it enough.

    This is only the second book I've read by Ms. Reisz, but that being said, I'll definitely be going back and reading more of her works. The first book was dynamically different than this book and I appreciate when an author can show a range of writing skills.The Lucky Ones is the story of several children, who were adopted or fostered by Dr. Capello, a renowned neurosurgeon and philanthropist. Allison is one of the children that Dr. Capello foster...

    Wow. What a gripping and fantastic tale from start to finish! I kind of went into this blind, didn't even read the blurb, just who wrote it and hoped I would like the story. Well, it was amazing.The Lucky Ones is kind of tragic at points. There's so many mysteries and lies and blank spaces to fill. The first half feels like a general coming home and maybe a second chance at love. The second half of this book is all about the crazy things that hav...
