Book Review: My Lucky Night by Olivia Spring

Romance Can Happen When You Least Expect It…

She hates Christmas. He’s about to change her mind…

Cassie isn’t a fan of Christmas. After a string of unlucky incidents during the festive season—including getting dumped—this year she decides to spend the day at home. Alone. No men. No complications.

But then her nightmare boss demands she track down this year’s most coveted Christmas gift—and the only person who can help is an annoyingly sexy Frenchman she’s just met.

Nicolas might look hot, but Cassie can tell he’s also arrogant, irritating and in love with himself. Exactly the kind of guy she hates. Plus, he’ll only help her find the gift if she helps him with something in return…

Could Cassie’s festive fortunes finally be about to change? Can she learn to love Christmas again? And will Cassie get lucky in more ways than one?

*****

Cassie isn’t a fan of Christmas. After a string of bad luck in previous years, she has decided that she’s spending the day at home, alone. No dinner, no tree. She’s simply ignoring Christmas.

When she literally bumps into a handsome French stranger, she dismisses him as rude. However, fate keeps pushing them together. She wonders if Christmas can be magic after all.

This is the second book in the ten-year crush series but can be read as a standalone. I didn’t feel like I was playing catch up at all.

Cassie is a wonderful character. She’s funny, flawed and real. She’s also had a lot happen to her so immediately, I wanted things to work out for her.

Nicolas is a lovely male lead. He’s a bit mysterious to start with and it was great to gradually learn more about him.

Supporting characters were also good. I did want to shout at Spencer to sort his own stuff out. Haha.

The setting is described so well, I felt as though I was in London. It brought back lovely memories of when I’ve visited London during Christmas.

The atmosphere of the shopping and the ice skating was so vivid. Can I go there please?

There were some sweet as well as laugh out loud moments in this book. I really want to know what happens next for Cassie and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

My Lucky Night is a feel good festive novella that explores love, spontaneous moments, how you shouldn’t always believe first impressions and being open to new experiences. It’s a perfect novel for people who like reading themed novels at this time of year or simply want a great love story. I loved it.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
