Just My Luck
Jennifer Honeybourn
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: July 16th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

Marty has terrible luck and she knows exactly why. While working as a housekeeper at the ritzy Grand Palms hotel in Maui, Marty made it a habit to steal small items from the guests. What better way to stick it to the rich snobs they have to clean up after? Marty knows how to turn her luck around — she just has to return all of the items she stole.

When Marty meets Will, a new guest who is staying for the summer, she does the one thing she always promised herself she’d never do — fall for an out-of-towner. But Will’s special, different from the other guests at the hotel. Maybe Marty’s luck is finally turning around.

After a string of misunderstandings and accidents threaten Will and Marty’s relationship, Marty has to find a way to fix her luck for good — or say goodbye to Will forever.

mythoughtsA Light & Cute YA Contemporary Romance Perfect for a Relaxing Day at the Beach

3halfhearts (1)

Just My Luck by Jennifer Honeybourn is a quick, but lighthearted and enjoyable YA contemporary romance.

This book is an easy and cute read. I really liked the concept of the story and some parts are quite delightful. I also liked the pacing and the swiftly moving plot with plenty of events and happenings. However, I felt like both the story and characters needed to be fleshed out a bit more. I just wanted everything to be MORE than what it was. So while there are definitely a few things that could have been executed better, I did enjoy the friendships, the family drama, the adventure, the setting, and the coming-of age aspects of the book. I also liked the sibling relationship between Ansel and Marty and wished they had more moments together. The ending seemed a bit rushed, but it still made me smile.

The characters are all right. I liked Marty and Will well enough. Marty is relatable and I rooted for her the entire time. Will is quite funny, adorable and caring. The side characters like Ansel, Hayes and Nalani are likeable. They’re all interesting on their own ways, but I just really wanted them to be more complex and to have more depth.

Romance wise… Uhmmm well, I’m not too sure I completely liked it. I know I didn’t not like it, but I just wanted something more. There are some moments that are quite romantic and sweet… it’s just I didn’t really feel intense and delicious swoony vibes between Marty and Will. They also didn’t seem to have the kind of chemistry that makes my heart melt. Having said that, they shared some adorable moments and I did enjoy some of their flirty scenes together.

Overall, this novel is a light and cute read. Despite the fact that I personally wanted to feel MORE excitement, MORE fun, and ultimately just MORE feels, I still enjoyed most of the story and I think this book is perfect for a relaxing day at the beach.

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the author, publisher, and Xpresso Book Tours via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
