The story here is not that shocking or remarkable. Cass's boyfriend, Jesse, cheats on her with her best friend, therefore ruining her entire life. However, predictably, she finds new friends, a new hobby (poker, of course--she lives in Las Vegas!), and maybe even a new guy.

What makes GETTIN' LUCKY special is the awesome Las Vegas-poker twist on what is a fairly typical teen romance! That kept my attention througout the book, although there were occ

I really like the book not only becasue i liked the story just like i lke the series of books.but the events of everything was very exciting and there was no boring part to this story.

The beginning of the story was such a puller. at first i didnt think it woud be exciting untill it got to the second page then it was totally pulled me in i was so suprised.
The story is about a girl who ahve very bad trouble and she thinks all about horoscopes which i like and she liv
This book is about this girl who thinks luck is everything that runs her life and is whatshe depended on when her boyfriend cheats on her with her best freind. She then becomes an outcast but met new and more realistic friends. She latter learns that she was living a life of guessign and isn't really make her happy. In teh end, she discovers that luck ISN'T everything and told her best friend that her boyfriend is a cheater even if she doesn't see it. They became freinds again.
I'll give this one 3.5 stars. I liked the premise, but couldn't connect with Cass at all. I liked the secondary characters, especially Kelly. I saw the love interest coming but even so, I didn't quite feel their connection, either.

Overall I'd say it's a cute story, but one that just didn't really work for me.

I don't know if it's because of their culture or what, but these teens are gambling on a regular basis. whoa.
This is predictable. Fluffy. Generic. Unorginal. What else? Still, it's rather hilarious and pretty fun.
Really liked this, but would not reccomend if you do not understand poker. summer 2010
It was short, cute, and sweet. Which was exactly what I needed when I read it.
