REVIEW - Lucky Break (Shamrock Falls #1) by Kelley Vitollo
Release Date: 24 August 2012
She’ll gamble her heart on the best friend she left behind…
One lucky break is all struggling actress Sidney Williams needs. But when living the LA life becomes too much, she heads back to the small town of Shamrock Falls for the vacation she needs to get her life on track—and immediately runs into Kade Mitchell, her former best friend and the boy next door she’s always regretted leaving behind.
Kade, the new owner of Lucky’s—once the most popular bar in Shamrock Falls—is determined to bring the place back to its former glory, and seeing Sidney again is a distraction he doesn’t need. Sure, the chemistry between them is explosive, but Kade can’t let himself fall into a fling with his best friend—not when he knows she’s soon heading back to the glitter of Tinseltown.
Now, with the possibility of her first major acting role looming, Sidney must decide if her lucky break is in Hollywood or right where she left it—in Shamrock Falls.
My Opinion 4 STARS
Kelley Vitollo is the pen name for Nyrae Dawn who writes Young Adult books.
This is a very heart-warming friends to lovers story where both characters have moved back home to Shamrock Falls either permanently or temporarily around the same time.
Things in LA are not exactly going as well as Sidney had hoped and she has gone back home after another failed audition and after her current boyfriend dumps her because he has a part in movie in New York.
Both Sidney and Kade used to be the best of friends that you could hardly separate them along with their friend Rowan. They were the best of friends since about age seven until the day she left town after graduation.
However being in close quarters with each other again, brings out more than just friendly feelings that were only just starting to develop before she left and Sidney also gets her passion back again for sewing.
Kade is a wonderfully soft and protective man who would do ANYTHING for Sidney even if it's going slower than a snails pace and Sidney's aunt Mae sounds like such a lively character.
This book takes you on the journey as two people reconnect and find that the best thing in their lives is not what they thought they wanted, but each other.
