Lucky was either going to be the love of my life or break me into a million pieces that could never be repaired. Or maybe both.

As a huge fan of second chance romances, I knew I had to read this book from the moment I heard about it! It's the story of a country singer who falls in love with a college student on the brink of his big break into fame. The timing couldn't have been worse as he knew he'd be gone for most of the time touring, but he couldn't

First, my book’s favorite quote.
”God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I can. And the wisdom to know the difference. While living one day at a time and enjoy one moment at a time. And accepting hardships as the pathway to peace.” The Serenity Prayer

It’s not that I’m an extremely religious person even if I do have beliefs but I find this quote so full of wisdom. It fits both main characters to a T. Lucky because he’s

“Run away with me, Katie.”

I need to start by saying that this review is going to be short and sweet. There have been times in the past where I have plenty to say and ramble on and on for pages on end. While at times that's fine, here I want you to simply take my word for it and experience this story. There's no way my little sentences could prove the love between Katie and Lucky, so I'm just going to give a few brief thoughts.

S.D. Hendrickson has once again beautifully crafted a heart-tugging emotional second chance novel. With her raw and heartfelt prose, Hendrickson orchestrates a symphony of drama, passion, heart, forgiveness, truth, and undying love.

This book is an amazing second chance story with some twists and turns. I already felt the love between Lucky and Katie in the prologue and they weren’t together then, so I wondered what happened between them that caused them to break up. The first half of this book is about how Lucky and Katie met, fell in love and broke up. Their love was strong and solid. They never stopped loving each other when they were apart. Lucky wanted to do anything to get another chance with Katie and he will fight f ...more
3-3.5 stars

Very sweet second chance romance without any major conflict or angst. Both MCs were cute and likeable. The reunion was very sweet and clean with hardly any drama. The so-called twist, however, was underwhelming and the resolution of that was, funnily enough, also very clean and sweet.

This could have been very boring, but I still found myself enjoying it more than I expected. Aside from some editing issues the writing had a nice flow to it, but this is definitely my least favorite of

4 stars!

Oh, I absolutely adored this book!

This is a beautiful second chance at love story with tons of feels. I even pulled out the tissues a time or two. And I'm not a big crier. I loved how the romance burns slow and steady - it's wonderfully done.

I'm really into old country, some new country and indie blue grass (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Alison Krauss <3), so naturally I loved that our hero, Lucky (swoon!), was an up and coming country artist (swoon again!). I had the song "The Lucky

“We are the Center of the Universe and nothing else matters. All the chaos out there is gone. It’s just you and me.”

Since reading The Mason List, S.D. Hendrickson has taken my heart hostage and it’s safe to say that she still has it. My Lucky Days was such a sweet story, from the creative way each chapter was named after a country song to the original song lyrics, which might I add was very imaginative and made the story and characters feel so real.

This story was one of a kind. It was one of those wrong timing, wrong moment kind of love stories.

Time heals all wounds and sometimes it breaks you apart and it will bring you back together :)

Katie and Lucky was extraordinary and they are so mature to handle their situations from when they were so young.

If this is real life, this is how people who separated for good reasons will actually act. They were mature and they are perfect together :)

I love the song lyrics Lucky writes as well :)

My Lucky Days captures young love at its finest. It’s a story that will make even the most non-country music fan (me), fall in love with the beautiful lyrics sprinkled throughout the book. To me, this was a beautifully written second-chance love story that will have you falling in love with this couple twice.

Katie meets Lucky by sheer coincidence while she is out at a bar one night with some girlfriends. From there, the two of them start to form a relationship while Lucky starts becoming more an

*ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Every book written by SD Hendricson has a special atmosphere, which makes me feel these books are screaming for a movie screen. These are the kind of stories I can imagine that I sit down at home with the family and we could together take part in the emotional journey of the characters, and maybe after everyone went to sleep, I’d put the film back and secretly re-watch

This is a beautifully SWEET second chance romance novel. It’s also a rockstar (or country musician) romance that will absolutely make your heart SOAR. Woah. This book really touched my heart.

S.D. Hendrickson brought this story to life on the pages. Set in the college town of Stillwater, Oklahoma, I truly connected and became a part of this story when it prompted so many personal feelings and familiarity for me. Not only is Stillwater the home of my beloved Oklahoma State Cowboys, but Oklahoma is my home state and when Lucky performs in Tulsa, it’s a nod to where I live and breathe each day. It was such fun to revisit special landmarks with both Lucky

I have loved this author since her first book The Mason Jar. My Lucky Days is second chance love story which is my absolute FAVE type of read. To top it all off, our hero is a country singer and the author has crafted beautiful original lyrics that have added such depth to this already emotional journey of Katie and her Lucky. I absolutely LOVE LOVE when an author can give readers original lyrics for their characters because it just adds another layer to the story, allowing readers to feel the m ...more
A music themed story with a second chance romance element? I gravitated to that idea right away. I thoroughly enjoy books that incorporate music onto them especially with own lyrics and such. I may not be a huge country fan but the fan that Lucky writes his own songs is a huge plus and it seems he would be the kind of artist I'd like. It's quite clever the country song title for the chapters, I listened to them while reading this and that definitely enhanced my experience.

S.D.Hendrickson is unique writer. All of her stories are heartbreaking with lump in the throat while reading it. My Lucky Days is no exception.
Lucky and Katie are two pieces in one heart but their young and pure love is too much for them at one time. Essentially this is a second chance love story and i enjoy reading it,what I realy loved are all the songs writen for Katie.
The story is as the blurb describes but maaaaaan, I expected a better execution.

Really. I was excited to dive into this one since it sounded pretty good. But what really ruined this novel for me was that a good 60-70% of the novel is spent in the bloody past! Let me tell youuuuuuu. From the prologue, the chemistry and hinted history between the pair was already off the charts. I could feel their lingering love for each other oozing from that chapter, so much so, that I felt like a good chunk of

***** 4 STARS *****

How can I start this review? Humm… I fell in love with S.D. Hendrickson writing since I read The Mason List. Her writing has this ‘je ne se qua’ that’s so different. I can’t even explain what it is. So when I saw the announcement for her new book, I knew it was a must read.

Katie is a regular college girl, the one who’s not used on having the spotlight on herself. Her roommate convinces her on going to a Halloween party, dressed as a sexy cat by the way. But there, since it
S.D. Hendrickson has done it for the 3rd time in a row. This has made it onto my all time favorite books. I already want to reread this book and I never reread books. That should say something. Seriously, if you haven't read any of her 3, you need to. She is a VERY talented writer and her books are gut-wrenching, emotional, and absolutely beautiful. I cannot stress my love for her books enough and they definitely don't get the love and attention they deserve. Add this one to your TBR and her oth ...more

My first book by Stacy was The Mason List. It was one of my top favorites last year. This book was my second of hers and I know for sure it's going in my top favorites this year.

This book was perfection! The first book of Stacy's that I read was The Mason List last year and that book made it to my top favorites for 2015. That book made me feel all the feels and I knew that this one would do the same after I read the synopsis. And I am glad to say that I was right and I know this one will also b

This author always delivers heart felt stories with realistic characters that speak to the reader's heart. This second chance romance broke my heart and then put it back together.
This is the story of Lucky and Katie and how they found their way back to each other.
The book is long but the writing is so captivating that I devoured it one day. Relatable characters and a a story that will remain with me.
If you are looking for something well written, then this is for you. I highly recommend it.
