My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Lucy Eaton had a job she loved as a Teaching Assistant at a Special Needs School and a boyfriend who struggled with commitment issues. Life was good, not great, but good, until one day Lady Luck paid Lucy a visit and a life that most people could only dream of opened up to her. With the creases of everyday life ironed out, she could sit back and live the dream.
But what if that dream doesn’t turn out to be what you thought you wanted?
Want and need are two very different things. The head wants, but the heart needs, and as generous and fortuitous as life can be, it can also be incredibly cruel. No one gets to live a creaseless life. That is something Lucy will soon discover.
I absolutely loved everything about this story. The characters have great depth, and the storyline weaves effortlessly from beginning to end. It brings out – as they say – “all the feels:” happiness, humour, suspense, anger, dread, fear, joy — and arousal (just when you need it most!). The characters are raw, real, and relatable – with human failings as well as great personal strengths. They pick you up from the very beginning and take you on an emotional journey, becoming dear friends by the end.
This is a standalone book that is extremely well-written; the author’s passion shows in every line. I could go on – and on – and on – but I will just conclude by saying that it’s a compelling read that will satisfy your every need; and, ultimately, it is utterly satisfying to the last detail. Highly recommended.
