I was so lucky to read The Unlucky Ones early! Review to follow.

I’ve been devoured by this story.

I cried.
I hurt.
I felt the want. The need.
Devon and Lincoln. I love.

I wrote my review so many times. Never able to find the right words to explain what this book did to me. I was pulled in and unable to get out for two days. I think I highlighted the whole book. I always highlight the paragraphs or sentences that grab me. Or tug at my heart. This book was full of those.

The realness of Devon’s life hit so close to home. Her always being strong when all she wa

4-4.5 stars. Devon Thorpe’s life just keeps getting more complicated, with extra responsibility added. She just found out some bad news that will affect her plans for the future, not to mention the other stuff that added to the pile. Her day is historically awful and she’s too young for these burdens but someone has to take charge because it won’t be her sister. Yet one distraction in the diner bathroom was a bright spot for a few minutes to help her forget her worries.

I liked Devon because she

If I could describe “The Unlucky Ones” in one sentence from this book I would use:

„I need one moment of happiness before life consumes all of me”.

The Unlucky Ones is an exceptional story about two broken souls who at the tragic point of their life share a reckless moment together. And this short encounter gave them strength and memories to fight with cruel reality for years… and sealed their fate. Because even the thickest and highest mental wall won’t stop you from recognizing your soulmate.

Wow this story is heartbreaking. Poor Devyn from the age of 16 has to grow up very quickly. Her father dies in the line of duty at 16, her sister gets pregnant soon after by a dead beat, and a few months later Devs mother develops Alzheimers at a very young age which means it's very progressive and they don't expect her to live long, and to lose her mind quickly. On the same day Dev finds this horrible news out her boyfriend of a few years accidently texts her that she's cheating on her with her ...more

I recently finished reading The Unlucky Ones by Stacey Marie Brown. When it was done, I had to pause a moment and reflect. This book was not only brilliantly written and breathtaking, it was heartbreaking. The Unlucky Ones is one of her Contemporary books and I knew it was going to be good. Hell, I knew it was going to be great. But I didn't know it would affect me the way it did. I didn't expect the tears that quietly fell. I didn't expect my heart to clog my throat. I didn't expect to feel the ...more

4.5 stars. I could not put this book down! The Unlucky Ones is a gritty, emotional read with a great storyline and remarkable characters. Devon is one of the strongest heroines that I have ever seen in a book. She experiences such heartbreak and grief, yet she perseveres. She is a responsible girl who is loyal and loving to her family, but be continually puts everyone else before her. Lincoln is an interesting hero. He blows hot and cold when it comes to Devon and he has secrets that he keeps hi ...more

I don't think my heart can take these rollercoasters anymore. Wait, who am I kidding. I loved it, bring it on!

Life can be messy, hard, complicated, to some more than others. It's how you deal with everything that makes you and shapes you.

I might have emotional whiplash after this one but those changes couldn't have come at a better time in the story. It keeps you on your toes and gets you deep into the story.

Each character here beings their own baggage and pain. That being said, even through

Stacey again has knocked the ball out if the ball park with "The Unlucky Ones". I literally could not put this book down. Devon has lost her father in the line of duty and a year later her mother has been diagnosed with familial Alzheimers, just when she thinks life can't get worse she finds out her boyfriend of three years is cheating on her. Devon's life is complicated with her responsibilities and commitment to her family. Having drinks with her best friend at the local diner, she ends up in ...more

I could NOT put this book down! It gripped me right from the start and I was hooked! Devon has to be so strong all the time, so responsible, but with one completely out of character decision, she has a chance encounter that will have an effect on her for years to come. Little does she know how strongly that is reciprocated. I absolutely LOVED Lincoln and Devon!
