“Lucky in Love” follows Maddie, a girl who just won the lottery, and her romance with her crush. At first, winning the lottery seems like the best thing that has ever happened to Maddie as she starts to buy and do things she has never even dreamed about. She even believes the money will solve all her problems. However, she quickly starts to realize that money is a dangerous thing. The one person that does not know about the lottery is Maddie’s crush, Seth. Seth seems to be the only person acting the same around Maddie after she won the lottery. His kind, light-hearted attitude makes Maddie like him more and more, but with everything going on, she is unsure if she can trust him. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. However, the plot wasn’t very unique as I’ve read books with similar plots before. In addition, I wouldn’t say this book “touched” me or had a “deeper” meaning. Therefore, I’d recommend it to those looking for a cute, light read. Rating: 3.5/5

Maddie is your normal high school student, has a part time job at a zoo, 4.0 GPA and a crazy family. So when she tests her luck on the night of her 18th birthday with buying a Powerball ticket worth 50 million dollars, her world is turned upside down when she actually wins. Now she finds herself buying fancy cars, clothes and helping out her family by giving them each one million dollars. But with this new found money she finds herself in hard situations, she can't trust anyone and people are cheating her out of money. But she can be her old self with Seth since he doesn't know about her winning the lottery. 
Kinda a unique plot which made it enjoyable to read, like the rest of Kasie West's novels. They are all quick and cute reads that always have a happy ending no matter the situations the characters are put through. This novel shows a great lesson, that money isn't everything and can't solve all the world's problems. Rating 3 out of 5 stars.

I really love how every Kasie West romance has a unique and exhilarating story, making her one of my definite go-to's for romance! I liked how the main character, Maddie, progress throughout the book. I definitely do think that the author can be a little more clear in certain areas, but overall a very good read. I'm very excited for the next one!
