Lucky At Love: Some Guys Just Never Give Up by Cynthia Hamilton is a unique take on the view people have of love and relationships and what constitutes a success. It was interesting to read a book with this perspective as it isn’t something you see everyday. It was not what I expected from it going in which was a pleasant surprise.
At times I did find the writing a bit slow in pace. There were times when I felt the author could have sped up the story a bit or added a little something extra to it. However the overall story was enjoyable and I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen. This was a good book and certainly worth a read.

This book got me hooked right away. It starts out with Allison, the journalist for a magazine, pitching her new story idea about a man who has been married & divorced 7 times. Jake who Allison met at his sisters wedding doesn’t believe he is a failure at marriage. Instead, he feels lucky to have loved so many different women. Jake definitely has an interesting take on marriage and love. I also appreciated that Allison started to really think about her marriage. Books that make you think about your own life are the kind I love the most.

When you meet someone you had prejudged as something else, it makes you take a look into your heart and soul and makes you evaluate what you have.

Allison is successful within her career, at the top of her game but when she has an idea to write an article regarding a man who has been married seven times, she does not predict what a life changer it will become.

Jake is a hopeless romantic, he has been married seven times trying to find the right one but he is not jaded he just jumps back in and looks for the next one.

I loved this story the characters of Allison and Jake were rich and just complimented each other perfect. I loved the way that Cynthia delved into the reality of Allison and that she was starting to re-evaluate everything she thought was safe in her life. You feel like you are with her working through all the decisions and relationships she has to get to a place where she loves herself more than anything and that she become at peace with that.

I loved the character of Jake he was warm and definitely jumped the list of book boyfriends. The story was well written and gentle weaved through both their stories. I would definitely recommend this story and can’t wait to read more by this author.

I absolutely loved this book. You can’t help but swoon over Jake. Even though Jake has had a rough past when it came to marriages but despite that he was almost the perfect man. I loved how he and Allison were completely relatable characters. Their past situations are completely realistic and you can’t help but completely relate to themselves and how they feel. The author did a great job on the depth of her characters and they were completely engaging. I fell in love with this book and the authors writing. I cannot wait for more stories!

Lucky at Love: Some guys just never give up… by Cynthia Hamilton is an interesting, between genres read. It is labeled as a romance, but it covers more than a typical romance. There is romance at different levels. I was not sold on the concept at the beginning and thought I had it all sorted out. Luckily, Ms. Hamilton proved me wrong and gave me a story I didn’t expect. What happens when a journalist is after a story? Do their own perceptions change as they get to know a subject? I think it was interesting and an introspective look at love, relationships, and marriage. I enjoyed how there were challenges put to Allison by Jake concerning her own life. This is a good read. I look forward to reading more from Cynthia Hamilton in the future.

aodre Cynthia writing style. I absolutely adore Jake characters an older man. Cynthia goes into great detail and has extremely descriptive writing style. Allison finds herself at the top of her career. The banter between Allison and Jake is classic.

I’ve become such a fan of Cynthia Hamilton’s the more I read her work. This book was no exception. It hits on the fact different people have different opinions on the thing we call “love.” The scenic picturesque environments the characters find themselves in set the mood for romance and steamy scenes between the two. Jake has experience in love. The scenery is beautifully described, the characters are easy to love and their stories are inspirational to capture your interest. I enjoyed this book very much.

“It’s a take on the notion of being addicted to love.” As soon as I saw Judith’s reaction, I knew I was out on a limb. I didn’t want to give her the impression this was to be a soppy, romantic, swept-off-one’s-feet piece. True, I did intend the story to be about love, or what passed for love in some people’s minds. But it was the downside of romance that I was really angling for. I wanted to explore the hypothesis that some people are actually obsessed with falling in love, literally hooked on the thrill of new romance. I cleared my throat and pressed on. ”

 

Lucky at Love: Some Guys Just Never Give Up… is another enthralling read by Cynthia Hamilton. I know I keep raving about Ms. Hamilton’s books and how much I love her writing- but I can’t help it, she really does know how to tell a captivating story and she never fails to impress me.
This is another book of hers that I really wasn’t sure about, going into it- I thought it would be a nice and easy read. So, I was really surprised, very early on, by just how fantastic it really was. I definitely didn’t expect to love it quite as much as I did- and I certainly didn’t expect to become so completely invested in the characters as the story progressed.
I really want to go on and on about all the elements of the story that I loved- but I think that by giving you those details might spoil the story for you. I think the blurb gives enough of an idea of what to expect but keeping enough back to make this a very intriguing read.
This seemingly simplistic story hides a more richly textured, character driven plot that explores so many notions such as human nature, connection, love, romance, emotion, and so much more.
A true Pearl of a story!

Thank you, Cynthia Hamilton!

By Cynthia Hamilton
4 out of 5 stars
I wasn’t sure entirely what to expect when I picked up Lucky in Love but I’ve truly come to love Cynthia Hamilton as a writer so I felt it was worth a chance. The book was longer than I anticipated but kept my attention well. It was easy to read and a nice story to relax with at night. What surprised me most about this novel was how much I came to like Jake. Going into the storyline I thought for sure he would be the character you love to hate! What was not as surprising was the fact that I can add this to the list of books I enjoyed by Cynthia Hamilton. If you haven’t checked out her writing yet, why not start here?
