When living the LA life becomes too much for Sidney Williams, she heads back to her small hometown. Kade, the new owner of Lucky’s bar and Sidney’s former best friend, is determined to bring the place back to its former glory, and the attraction between him and Sidney is a distraction he doesn’t need. 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.

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.

3 ½ Stars! Enjoyable, fun, sweet, friends to lovers story. For the most part a pleasant read, but not without some issues. I had a hard time relating to Sidney, but adored Kade. They both struggled with their feelings for each other, when it was quite evident to the reader they were in love. Sidney’ ...more

Sidney always thought that someday becoming an actress was her dream, but after years without achieving anything with that and uncertain if that was what she really wanted, she comes back to Shamrock Falls and the best friend she had always loved but had left behind.
Kade has also come back to tow ...more

Kelley Vitollo is the pen name for Nyrae Dawn who writes Young Adult books. I have read and loved all of her YA books and so I was looking forward to reading Lucky Break and seeing how her adult book was. Let me tell you it was just as good as her other books.

I love this Author's NA/YA books.

But this this just didn't hit the 5 stars her work normally does.

This is a friends to lovers story, which I normally love. I just had a hard time connecting to our heroine Sidney.
At times is was repetitive and felt a bit too cutesy.

With that being said ...more

"I spent my life so scared I wasn't worthy, that I turned around and walked away from the most important person in my life. I was so scared you couldn't really love me, that you just wanted to save me, that I didn't let myself realize how I felt about you I didn't let myself see it wasn't about you ...more

Sidney Williams and Kade Mitchell had always been best friends. On graduation night that changed and the relationship took another turn. Sidney was afraid, and left the little town of Shamrock Falls to find her lucky break as an actress in LA, without an explanation or even saying goodbye. After 5 y ...more

Holy Shit! I read this years ago and just realized I never posted my review. Oopsie Poopsie. Here it finally is 3 years late.

It is amazing what our parents garbage can do to a person's foundation and development. Because of Kade's and Sidney's parents making bad choices they ended up learning life ...more

I have had the good fortune to be able to read a couple new releases from Entangled's Bliss line which focuses on uplifting and heartwarming stories and Lucky Break totally fits that description.

I didn't know going in that this line fades to black so if that's not what you're looking for then this ...more

Yup I'm definitely a sucker for the bestfriend love story and this is no different. I just fell for Sidney and Kade's story, yes life gets in the way sometimes and our own fears, worries and pride get in the way of a lot things. These two were a close as bestfriends could be, they were spec ...more

I loved this book! I read it one sitting because I was so totally pulled into one of the best romances I've read. ~sigh~ I adored Kade and Sidney - the emotion and chemistry between them was so real and their feelings for each other so palpable, that they leapt off the page, and I felt like I was ri ...more

You know I love me a good romance. I like it even better when it is the cleaner variety. Lucky Break gave me exactly what I wanted.

If you're a fan of friends to lovers stories, then you'll love this. It doesn't sizzle like most of the books I read but I definitely enjoyed this one. Lucky Break is a feel good kind of book. Quick, sweet and fun read. Definitely will continue with the series.
