Susanne’s Review:

Anxiety Inducing!

I used to think winning the lottery would be an amazing thing, however after reading this book, I have changed my mind. 

From greed, to overzealous spending, to truly despicable characters, “Just My Luck” gave me heart palpitations.  

Lexi plays the same numbers on the lottery year after year with nothing to show for it, until one day when she wins it big. I’m talking 18 Million Pounds (think 25.5 Million Dollars). For years their friends had a pool and played the same numbers, but the weekend before, their friends pulled out of the pool and low and behold, the following week Lexi wins and now their friends want a piece of the pie.

Can you say MEOW?! 

A display of how despicably people act when money is on the line. 

From the exorbitant purchases made, to his complete disregard for his wife, Jake, Lexi’s husband, made my blood boil. Though this novel ramps up in suspense as the novel gets going, I admit that the premise made me way too anxious and frankly, gave me nightmares.   

Thank goodness I had a glass of bourbon in hand, and a buddy to read this book with!  Kaceey – I wouldn’t haven’t gotten through this one without you!

Thank you to NetGalley, Harlequin – Mira and Adele Parks for the arc.

Kaceey’s Review:

A winning lottery ticket.  All your dreams are about to come true.  But what if it turns into a nightmare instead?

Lexi and Jake just hit the jackpot! They are over the moon and ready to spend their winnings.  But there may be one small problem.  Two other couples went in week after week on lottery tickets with Jake and Lexi…until last week. 

Can these two couples still stake a claim to the winnings?

This read captured me from the beginning as I was caught up in the excitement with our winning couple.  But as the former friends spoke up wanting their share my anxiety was off the charts.  Why you ask?💁🏻‍♀️. I’m not sure what it was about this scenario that left me completely unsettled. 

I do play the lottery occasionally but after reading this book I will not be participating in a lottery pool!🙈

A buddy read with Susanne!

Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin Trade Publishing.

  1. Thank you so much Wendy! I’ve heard so many cases where people’s lives have changed but not for the better. This book really makes you wonder if it’s worth it. Haha! Of course it is!😂
