RELEASE REVIEW: Lucky in Love by Kelly Elliott

From New York Times best selling author, Kelly Elliott, comes a new series her WANTED fans will adore.

Filled with love, hope, and second chances, LUCKY IN LOVE, is book four in the Southern Brides series.

Each book in this series will be stand alone books. 


It was no wonder that my matchmaking mother hired a hotshot builder, with a reputation for being accident prone, to build my daughter a playhouse castle that was bigger than my first apartment. Her primary goal: that we’d make some sort of love connection.

Well, no, thank you.

The last thing I wanted, or needed, was a relationship with some handyman cowboy by the name of Truitt Carter. But when we come face to face, I’m met with a man who has no intention of walking away from a challenge … that challenge specifically being me.

When it comes to luck, I’m on the wrong end of the good side with more mishaps than I care to remember. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a happy guy: single, decent looking, wealthy, with a waiting list of people who want me to make their kid’s dreams come true with my custom-designed playhouses.

My life was exactly how I wanted it to be. That is, until Saryn Night walked into my office with the intention of firing me. Good luck with that. One strong-headed, opinionated woman with a three-year-old little girl had turned my world upside down within five minutes. The moment they stormed into my office — bright blue eyes, curly brown hair, and a smile that would make any man fall to his knees, and that was just the daughter — I knew I was in for one wild ride that was guaranteed to turn my luck completely around.

Now, for once in my life, I found myself thinking that maybe, just maybe, I could finally be Lucky in Love.

My Review

Kelly Elliott’s Southern Bride series is the kind of heartwarming romance stories that readers love and because of the small-town setting and the amazing cast of primary and secondary characters, each book leaves a lasting impression about love, life, and the importance of family and second chances.

Lucky in Love, book four in the series, has a second chance romance feel to it because the hero and heroine share a past, one that they were both hoping would lead to something more, but ultimately, due to miscommunication and outside interference never happened, but now that Saryn Night and Truitt Carter are back in each other’s lives, five years later, they must just get things right this time, but only if they get out of their own way.

What I love most about how Elliott crafted Truitt’s personality is that his imperfections, his clumsiness are endearing and he truly is a stand up guy. There are such sweet and heartfelt moments that illustrate exactly how much love Truitt has to give to the two beautiful girls in his life.

Saryn is an amazing mom and Elliott does a great job illustrating the difficulties of being a single parent, working through her divorce, and being everything she needs to be, to not only her daughter, but also to herself.

The fact that Saryn and Truitt’s story is titled Lucky in Love is a bit of a paradoxical phrase, not only because Saryn’s first marriage ended in divorce but also because luck didn’t seem to be on their side when they were younger and crushing on each other. But maybe luck is exactly what brings these two back together and provides them an opportunity to finally get things right, to revel in their love for each other and for the most precious little girl in the world.
