Blog Tour: Lucky in Love - Review + Favorite Quotes

Happy release day to Lucky in Love! To celebrate, I have today's stop on the Lucky in Love blog tour! I will be providing my review and my favorite quotes.

Lucky in Love
Author: Kasie West
Publisher: Scholastic
Publication Date: July 25, 2017
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

In this new contemporary from YA star Kasie West, a girl who wins the lottery learns that money can cause more problems than it solves, especially when love comes into the picture.

Maddie doesn't believe in luck. She's all about hard work and planning ahead. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. And then, to her astonishment --

She wins!

In a flash, Maddie's life is unrecognizable. No more stressing about college scholarships. Suddenly, she's talking about renting a yacht. And being in the spotlight at school is fun... until rumors start flying, and random people ask her for loans. Now, Maddie isn't sure who she can trust.

Except for Seth Nguyen, her funny, charming coworker at the local zoo. Seth doesn't seem aware of Maddie's big news. And, for some reason, she doesn't want to tell him. But what will happen if he learns her secret?

With tons of humor and heart, Kasie West delivers a million-dollar tale of winning, losing, and falling in love. 

Kasie West’s books are all cute, light, and fluffy. This is no exception. It is also fast-paced which makes this good for a quick read.

This story is about Maddie and what she does after winning the lottery. The romance part takes a bit of a back seat here with the main focus on Maddie’s spending of her money. I didn't really like that the main character kept spending her money without really thinking about it (ex. she rents a yacht for $20,000 just for an unnecessary party). Because she's still just a young adult, she's going to make mistakes and that really shows in the story. Also, I really liked her friends. They helped to carry the story well.

Overall, I liked the story and would definitely recommend this to someone who likes fast-paced YA contemporaries.
