It's all in the luck of the ball...
Quirky yet adorable, Wren Jamison couldn't make a good decision if her life depended on it. When poor choices forced Wren to question her judgment, fate—in the shape of a small black ball—stepped in and took over. That orb became her lifeline. Now, years later, every move she makes revolves around her Fortune Ball. Every. Single. Decision.
Kissing Logan Enders isn't a strange twist of fate—the ball tells her to do it. And she does. After all, the ball is never wrong. The sexy song-writing musician needs Wren to put her trust in him—not in the small screen of a children's game. But just like any modern woman, Wren might prefer the dependability of the toy over the uncertainty of a man. So who will win?
All signs point to...
I have such mixed emotions with this book. It’s the perfect book for me, in theory. I love the sweet romances most in life. I LOVED Logan in this story; his patience won me over. Wren, I get her anxieties. I understand her trauma in high school. I also thought relying on the Fortune Eight Ball was a great and unique aspect in romance books. (It’s almost like watching a Hallmark movie but on HBO, my FAVORITE kind of movie, thus favorite ingredients for a book.)
The reason for the mixed emotions… simple. I couldn’t really connect with the characters. I tried, really I did, but the third person narrative just isn’t my favorite. I’d five star this book with I could really get 1:1 with these characters, but I just couldn’t get totally invested in the story.
If you enjoy third person, this is a definite one-click for you! The story is good, overall I enjoyed it, I just wanted to connect a bit more.
