I really loved this book. I fell in love with Jake, just like Allison. How could I not, a man in his 60's that does everything from raises and ride mules to doing the tango. A true renaisancw man. At first i was with Allison, a man who has been married 7 times, must be something wring with him. But then through the pages of the book I got to know Jake and I couldn't help but like him.

I also have been divorced and was glad when Allison discovered that in relationships, people can change, maybe th

Recommend for: fans of chick lit

A really good read and a very well written book. It enjoyed reading it and it kept me hooked right until the very end. A good read for people who like 'chick lit' books. The characters that feature in the book have great depth to them thanks to the great detail and descriptions by the author,they make the characters feel realistic and you end up getting caught up in everything that happens. The main character of Jake is

I have found a new author! I loved these characters. I have to admit I guessed the ending but was truly happy with how it ended. This is a romance/ chic lit/ summer beach book, but then again, it is more.

To label this novel as a romance does both the book and its author a disservice. While there are romantic elements to the novel, the most impressive aspects of it stem from excellent writing. Sharp characterization; intriguing plotting; rich description. The caliber of the author's talent in all these areas is literary.

I enjoy fiction that involves relationships...the analysis of a relationship, even its dissection, carries a story in my opinion. Cynthia Hamilton is masterful at this. She invent

I loved this book! It is so well written it is pleasure to read. As the story unfolds between Allison and Jake I was swept along on their journey, delighted by the colorful cast of characters as well as the many vivid landscapes Allison finds herself in. Ms Hamilton has created real life and thought provoking situations that give this story a warmth and depth that made me fall in love with and really care about Jake and especially Allison. This book is intelligent, funny and highly entertaining. ...more

It was a really slow start & I almost gave up on it. Once the real story got moving I didn't want to put it down, but it was very predictable.

3.5 stars. I liked it. Lucky at Love: Some Guys Just Never Give Up, by Cynthia Hamilton, is one of those books that quietly sneak up on you - no big action or adventure. I wanted to put it aside often, but kept coming back to see if the main character, Allison, would solve the puzzle of Jake Sorenson, a man divorced seven times, or simply sucumb to the man's charms.
My only criticism is for the editor who failed to format this Kindle edition correctly and also did not correct the author when she

When rising journalist Allison Tyler-Wilcox comes up with the notion of interviewing seven-times-divorced Jake Sorenson, she has little idea how it will impact her life and her own less-than-perfect marriage. As with all good romances, the interest in the story lies not so much where the plot is going but how we will get there - and what soul-searching will be involved for the characters along the way. The characters are engaging and happily flawed, and Ms. Hamilton's writing is charming and upb ...more

I have been writing since 2000, when a collection of bizarre physical problems forced me to find a creative outlet I could pursue from bed, if it came to that. Since then, I've written several novels and two memoirs. I love creating characters and setting them down in situations to see how they react. Most of my stories spring entirely from my overly-fertile imagination. My latest—Girl Trap—is the ...more
