Lucky in Love Book Review

Book: Lucky in Love
Author: Kasie West
Rating: 5 Out of 5 Stars

There is just something about Kasie West’s books that I really enjoy. She is one of the few authors who I have read that I have not hated a book at some point. Her books at light, funny, and super cute with a lot of tension thrown in the mix.

I actually do own this one. It’s the only Kasie West book that I do own and I may just end up start buying her books instead of getting them from the library. This is one of my book fair buys-yes, kids, even the teacher buys books at book fair. I am so glad that I did buy it! I love the light and witty nature of the book.

Maddie has won the lottery and she now finds herself the centre of attention. She really isn’t the trype of girl who had a lot of attention to begin with. She is focused on her goals: studying, getting into her dream school, family, and the zoo. She isn’t the type who takes a lot of risks-until she wins the lottery. She finds herself thrown into the rink. She does a lot of stupid stuff, sure, but come one, she’s only eighteen and think about yourself at that age. Would you had done the same thing? However, she does actually want to use her money to help others and others do take advantage of her. She thinks that her money can be used to solve other peoples’ problems, which does that really make her such a bad person?

I love Seth. He is her solid rock and such a great guy. He’s Asian-actually I think he may be Kasie’s first Asian male lead. I don’t know; I’ll have to check up on that one. Anyway, he’s artsy, not really athletic, and works at a zoo. He’s not the typical smart Asian that we see so many times in books. His grades are only less than average.  He’s loyal until the end and is just the type of guy you can’t help but to fall in love with.

Kasie’s writing is what makes her books for me. She is one of those authors who is bound to put a smile on your face. I don’t what it is about her writing, but I am completely drawn to it. It’s light and quick, with just enough touch of charm and real life. There I said it.

Overall, a really good book from one of my favourite authors!
