Who hasn't dreamed of just buying one ticket and winning the lottery? For those of us not in the millionaire's club, it's normal to think about what we would do if we won.
Ray and Holly are co-workers at Corman's, a one-stop superstore. Ray convinces Holly to give him a dollar to which he will add another dollar and buy a Powerball ticket. If they win anything, they will split it evenly. Holly doesn't put too much stock into it until she sits down to watch the lottery announcement because she promised Ray she would. All the numbers matched. She immediately runs to the bathroom and throws up. Instantaneously becoming a multi-millionaire was apparently too much to handle.
Going in to the story, everything feels more relaxed, but after they win, they struggle with not deserving the money and trying to overcome their pasts. As someone who really got into the whole New Adult theme, I thought I would enjoy this book more than I did. In the beginning the characters were more themselves, even if they were living paycheck to paycheck. It seems as if they lost that realness after the win, even before they received the money.
I couldn't understand why Holly was still allowing her ex to control her life after being divorced for five years. It would have been different if she was actually still in love with him, but she's not and she left him because of his actions. It just didn't seem very realistic for a mother to allow her son to be taken without a fight. That whole situation just irked me.
It doesn't take long to read this story, so if you think it's something that you would like, and you always have to find out for yourself, then go ahead and give it a shot.
I received a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating!
This book was extremely hard to get through, strictly on an emotional basis and nothing to do with writing quality at all. You know how sometimes you come across those books that will restore your faith in humanity and lift you up, all that kind of stuff? Yeah this did none of those things for me throughout huge chunks of it. I kept having to stop and start, over and over. I desperately wanted to see how it would all come to an end, but at the same time every few pages I was either angry or hurting or a really messed up combination of the two.
My feelings towards Holly's character are very, very mixed. As a mother, she's pretty freaking great. She would and has sacrificed anything for her son. On that front I have copious amounts of respect for her. However, due to the verbal abuse of her ex-husband she is an extremely weak person to the most annoying extent. Don't get me wrong, I realize that this, in a way, is not her fault. Her ex is a real piece of work let me tell you. But the fact that she allows it to go on and even years after their divorce lets herself be a doormat for him drove me insane. Every time it was in her point of view she would internally question her own worth, her worth as a mother and so on and so forth. I had plenty of moments when her whiny, self-depreciating inner monologue was almost too much.
But what really and truly made me lose faith in mankind was less the main characters and more the brief side characters. First you have Holly's ex-husband, Brett, who is bad enough as it is.Read more ›
*****MIGHT CONTAIN A FEW MILD SPOILERS!!!!*****
This is the first book that I've read by Maher, and while I thought some of it was a bit predictable, it was ultimately a very quick and great read!
Holly is a single mother who tries to do everything she can for her son, but is constantly stretched too thin. She has a wretched ex-husband who can't stand that she finally left his verbally abusive butt and will do anything he can to maintain some modicum of control over her. The sad part is that she's been beaten down by him for so long that she still lets him and it adds to her own feelings of being inadequate.
Ray is trying to get over the recent loss of his mother and working to keep a promise he made to her before she died to do something more with his life than work in a diner. He falls hard for Holly as soon as he meets her, but he knows he needs to tread lightly to gain her trust.
Then, they will the lottery. BIG time. And their worlds are turned upside down overnight. While reading, I thought they'd get straight into the "lovey" section of the story right after the win, but I was pleasantly surprised that Maher chose to slowly build up the tension and not have Holly drop her guard immediately.
I really liked their story and I felt the author did a great job in building not only their characters out fully, but also the secondary characters. The story and characters had some depth and I enjoyed the ride. This is a solid 4 stars for me and I'll be checking out other stories by Maher in the near future!
