"Novelist Helena Hunting knows how to keep us turning pages. Her signature warmth and risqué wit is on full display in The Good Luck Charm, a sexy, sweet take on first loves and second chances. One of our very favorite things about this charming romp is the dueling perspectives of the book's delightfully imperfect central characters, Lilah and Ethan.

Helena Hunting has definitely delivered with a swoony hero in Ethan Kase. Although who are we kidding- she always delivers in the sexy book boyfriend category. The newest release features a second chance love story between the book’s main characters, Lilah and Ethan. For anyone who knows the heartache of a first love lost the story will resonate with truth and consequences of following your dreams. Hunting has the ability to weave beautifully deep and complex storylines while maintaining the sweetness, humor, and sexy times that we have all come to expect and relish in.
It was evident from the first page that these characters were created with love and it was impossible not to instantly fall in love with them. The book started with Lilah having a rather challenging morning, and I felt like I was reading my own autobiography with as much as I could relate to her. She was a strong woman that was focusing on her dreams when a ghost- the ghost- of Ethan Kase returned to her life. Ethan is a professional hockey player that was dealing with a difficult time in his career while also dealing with a family issue that brought him and Lilah crashing back together, forcing them each to face their past, regardless of how painful it may be. Ethan had chosen hockey over his relationship with Lilah, and he definitely had to prove himself again to get her to know she could trust and count on him.
In true Helena form there are some hilarious moments that made me laugh out loud and some super steamy scenes that made me swoon. There was a big twist in there that just kind of came out swinging, knocking me out with the completely unexpected nature of it and I loved how it worked into the story. The book was a perfect balance of sweet, sassy, sexy and angsty and I did not want it to end. Like at all. Like, I went and reread it.
If you fell in love with the Pucked series there is a mention of those sexy Chicago boys, but this book is a standalone. It was like a hug from old friends when they popped up but Ethan is more than capable of standing on his own and he did in a big way.
Ethan regrets the decision he made years ago to leave his first love behind. But its a tough choice for a young man between what if and what could be. He choose his dream career and left Lilah wondering just where they went wrong. Now he's back in town and it could be for good. He has to put some demons to rest before his life takes another turn downhill. Lilah's had the worst day filled with divorce papers, a second father's medical scare and now her first love is back in town. There's too much history for them to get along now. But Ethan's got more than just reconciliation on his mind.
The light-hearted humor and wit that any HH fan knows is definitely present in TGLC. Ethan and Lilah, whether they're fighting or reminiscing, have the ability to outwit and go head to head with one another. But Hunting takes us back to her original romance feels of heavy story lines. These two have so much to get through from their past. Ethan's betrayal towards Lilah is built in layers of young ignorance. As Ethan tries to win back Lilah he unknowingly slips back into his old habits of depending on "rituals" to win games. Soon Lilah feels as if she's not just a woman to Ethan any more, but instead that he is with her out of habit in order to further the career he originally left her for.
Prepare for love and heartbreak with this new romance. Lilah has to fight tooth and nail to decide what she truly wants and deserves. A failed marriage after a broken heart and a family that had abandoned her and her sister left her with a rough start. There's solace to Lilah's work but it too holds secrets. Ethan has to fight for the future he wants, be it Lilah or hockey. With twists and turns and hope for the future this romance has got it all. Fun, sex, laughter, heartbreak, sadness, and the reality of true love.
Lilah and Ethan were childhood sweethearts. Eight years after they broke up, Lilah is working as a nurse in their hometown and Ethan just got traded to a hockey team close to home. What if your first love is your soulmate?
I really like liked that this story showed that there are other important areas of life than just romance. To be truly happy, you have to be fulfilled in each. There was definitely a twist or two that I didn’t see coming. Overall, I had fun reading this book. I can only hope that I one day read the story before Carmen and Dr. Lovely.
I voluntarily read an early copy.

Regret is a powerful demon to live with and it can affect the way in which you conduct all aspects of your life without even realizing it. Which is exactly the situation Ethan faces when he returns to his hometown after eight years away.
Following the break-up with his high school girlfriend, Delilah, Ethan’s sports career has taken a nose-dive. He has one more season to make an impression or he could find himself retired before he is 30. His original plan had been to play for his hometown but circumstances dictated otherwise, now he is where he should always have been but without the one person he has compared everyone else to, Lilah.
Ethan’s break-up with Lilah completely crushed her, so much so that she never fully recovered from it and has kept her heart safely locked away even during her marriage. I felt sorry for all the parties concerned where Lilah’s failed relationship was concerned however, the heart wants what it wants and in Lilah’s case no-one else can make her feel as much as Ethan.
Connected by a family emergency, Ethan and Lilah have to work through all of their emotional baggage in order to move on with or without the other. The Good Luck Charm shows how easy it is to lose yourself in someone else especially when you are nurturer by nature. Fear will ultimately undermine any happiness you are trying to achieve.
The most important lessons both Ethan and Lilah have to learn are recognising their independence is necessary to a healthy, thriving relationship. Letting go of their fears and embracing the present, will lead to a brighter future 💕
Fun easy to read book with a fab story and lovely charcters to just draw you into the book and fall in love with it.
Second chance romance and hot hockey player... what else could you ask for!
Lilah is trying to get her life back on track after her recent divorce...but what she's not realised quite yet as her past is still shaping her future.
