The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting

The Good Luck Charm

Is it love, or is she just his good luck charm? New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting absolutely delights with this witty and fun standalone contemporary romance. 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 K...

    4 stars!! I love sports/hockey romance and I love second chance romance. Helena Hunting did a fantastic job bringing both of these romances into The Good Luck Charm! I loved that this one had the perfect mix of emotion and humor. Lilah and Ethan dated in high school. They were in love and it was serious. That is, until Ethan left her to focus on his professional hockey career. Lilah has stayed in town and stayed close to Ethan's family. Now, it'...

    This was my very first dip into the Helena Hunting pool and, oh, how sweet it was! Good Luck Charm was a delightful gem of a second chance romance, a sweet and swoony love story that I just adored. Now I'm just sitting here wondering why I haven't read her books sooner!I'm typically a girl that's all about angsty reads that tug at my heartstrings and pummel my emotions. But sometimes a girl just needs to lighten things up with a refreshing, light...

    The Good Luck Charm is custom made for second chance romance lovers. Helena Hunting gives us some tension mixed with humor, and adds hockey to satisfy sports romance addicts like me. It’s a great combo.Ethan and Lilah fell in love in high school. Ethan had his sights set on the NHL even back then, and they had their lives planned out together. Unfortunately, Ethan changed the rulebook after graduation and abruptly broke things off with Lilah. E...

    ★3.5 STARS★It’s never fun coming face to face with an ex after an acrimonious breakup, but it’s darn right brutal when your ex is successful pro hockey player Ethan Kane. They say time heals old wounds but truth be told Delilah hasn’t yet come to terms with the callous way her childhood sweetheart called time on their romance in order to concentrate on his career.Although eight years may have passed she’s made it her business to make ...

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Lets start off by being honest here.  I struggled with picking this book up because I haven't had much interest in reading Ms. Hunting the past years.  Although I really enjoyed Clipped Wings, I didn't feel any pull to read some of her more recent rom coms based on reviews the past few years.  B...

    “I promise I’ll keep my tongue to myself from now on, unless otherwise requested.” Helena Hunting gives us a little something different with her latest release, The Good Luck Charm. If you are familiar with the wonderfully talented Ms. Hunting then you’re well aware that she likes to play on the more angsty side of romance. With this sexy new standalone, she gives us something different, something refreshing, light, swoony, and sexy. Lila...

    I love me a Helena book no matter what. This one was fun and light and fast. But really not her best/my favourite of hers. Second chance romances are one of my top romance tropes. Just something about finding a way back to each other as adults makes for a delicious romance. They already know each other, but have to like get to know each other as adults. And well, Lilah and Ethan are doing just that. I feel like The Good Luck Charm tried to be a r...

    When I first saw this book on NetGalley, the applications to read this were already closed, however in early July I was granted a wish by the publisher to have the opportunity to read this!! It was my first ever wish granted on NetGalley and I was so pumped to start reading.The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting follows Lilah and Ethan in this dual POV second chance novel. They dated in high school and were completely inseparable until Ethan was d...

    I thought this was going to be a grovelfest when I read the blurb. So I hunkered down for some good down home GROVELLING HERO action!But it wasn't grovel-worthy. Not that the heroine was a doormat, but let's just say she was an easy sell. And by the halfway mark, when they were back at it, I realized that there was a whollotta book left and I didn't understand what else there would be left to say. Oh right!! She suspects the heroe's over attentiv...

    I don't know how many times I have to say this but pushover heroines and second chance romance just do not make a good romance! They just don't! I always end up annoyed and completely embarrassed for the heroine.This feeling is akin to when you have a friend who keeps on hooking up with their ex-boyfriend despite telling you over and over again that they're done with him. It's just exhausting and annoying.Can we have more books with strong-willed...

    Man, Helena Hunting and her sports romances! I swear, every single one of them is an absolute winner in my book, and you can count this as one of my all-time favorites. Add onto the fact that this also happens to be a second chance romance, and I’m. A. Goner.The Good Luck Charm wasn’t just dripping sexual tension, but it was also charged with so much emotion and humor—it’s almost like a sweeter and more charming version of the books in he...

    OMG, finally!!This book is not only everything I love about Helena Hunting — it’s everything I love about a romance novel!! That’s how a real romance look like — it’s about decisions, adult-like conversations and passion. And The Good Luck Charm checked all of my boxes.Ethan is the sweetest and Lilah is my favorite heroine ever!! This girl rocks a real personality. This book is absolutely in the top 3 reads of this year!

    I have finally finished my first Helena Hunting book! WHAT IS LIFE!! This second chance/sports romance was definitely the way to go. I loved the romance, the sexiness of it all, and also how incredibly sweet and heart-warming these two main characters were!At times, this one took a slight turn to a much slower pace or just narrated over to somewhere I felt was a bit out of place, but overall this story left a big grin on my face and is it too muc...

    Actual rating 3.5*This is a really cute, adorable, endearing and steamy romance novel but unfortunately it missed the mark for me because not a lot happened which made it difficult for me to stay engaged. I would still wholly recommend it because the characters are adorable, extremely sweet and I fell for the main male character. This is a fabulous second chance romance and it was fun! I just personally prefer more plot; but that’s just my pref...

    *I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.*  The Good Luck Charm was one of my most anticipated releases for the summer and while Helena Hunting's books are usually a hit or miss for me, I'm glad to say that this one ended up being a hit. It had me smiling like a goof ball the whole time I was reading it and I simply couldn't get enough! The last person Delilah Jane ever expected to see again was...
