Book Review: Lucky In Love

Book Review by Toni G. Sinns
Book Title: Lucky
In Love
Author: Karina
Gioertz
About the Author:
Karina began writing as a child. Early on it was mostly poetry and short
stories, but by the time she was a teenager she was pulled towards writing
screenplays. In her twenties she spent some time studying creative writing and
continued working on her poetry, some of which was published at the time.
In addition to that, she spent many years studying acting
and taking voice lessons, which led to extensive experience in all aspects of
Community Theater. Since then, Karina has self-published several books and has
also become an avid blogger in addition to continued focus on screenwriting.
Although she has been writing for most of her life, it never
quite registered with her as something out of the ordinary or worth pursuing,
because it was so closely connected to who she was. Instead, she focused on her
singing and acting because the draw to that industry had always been there. In
the end Karina realized that she never quite enjoyed ‘being in’ the story as
much as she enjoyed ‘telling’ the story. Karina is not a writer because it’s
the only thing she’s good at, or it’s the only thing she knows how to do…
Karina is a writer because it’s the only thing she doesn’t know how NOT to do.
While writing has become her main focus over the years, she
also enjoys many other creative activities such as painting and photography.
Most sunny days she can be found in her courtyard working feverishly at
painting and refurbishing old furniture…that is, of course, only if it wasn’t
a suitable day to spend at the beach 😉
Book Description:
Most days Lucky doesn’t mind being single. And why would she? Between her three
male roommates, there’s always someone around to keep her company. But then as
relationships evolve and change, Lucky soon finds herself being left behind.
When Lucky’s birthday rolls around and she finds herself being the only one
without a date in a room full of people, she has to face the sad truth that the
three men in her life all have women in their lives that aren’t her. Lucky
finally asks herself how she wound up there. Has love been avoiding her…or has
she been avoiding love?

My Review

Story Line: 1 girl and 3 men in a house nothing can be wrong
with those odds can they? It really isn’t as easy as it should be and it isn’t
as glorious as you would believe it could be either.  As you watch the story unfold and each person
has their own path to follow you become more and more aware of the way their
paths crossed but now are all in the same direction.
Characters: Tara, D, Lucky, Gabe, Noah, Jason
My Favorite Character: Noah. I’ve got to admit I have a soft
spot for bad boy types. And as you read and learn more about his hidden
secretes and his personality I can’t help falling more in love with this guy.
My Favorite Part: Is the bar scene when everything finally
comes to light between the three guys. I can’t tell you TO much about the scene
cause I don’t want to spoil the book for you. But it really shows how you can
keep things hidden from your friends and how your friends are right there to
back you up and put you on the right path.
Full Concept: As this group of friends becomes more and more
tangled in their life dramas and different paths you can’t help but feel like
one of them. Standing in Grandma Pearls house watching the flirty fights and
playful arguments. You learn their secrets and find out about their fears.
Overall Rating: 5 of 5 Stars. I love this author’s work. I
am always able to connect with the characters. Always able to get myself lost
in the story and feel as though I stand side by side with her characters. I recommend
this book for all of those looking for an enjoyable read.
