What's your lucky number?

Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. While every other college student is out having fun, Lyla is studying. With her cat. Well, she's played it "safe" quite enough, thank you. So she creates a "College Bucket List"―with item #7 being a night of uninhibited, mind-blowing sex...

But she needs some help from her man-whore best friend.

Hockey player Beck Davenport thought Lyla's transformation would be subtle. Man, was he wrong. With every item she ticks off, Beck finds himself growing seriously hot for his sweet, brainiac best friend. And if he's not careful, he'll end up risking their friendship in order to convince Lyla that he might just be her lucky #7...

NA Review My Thoughts

Getting Lucky Number Seven is my favorite kind of new adult contemporary romance. I love the flirty nature of the friends to something more trope, I love the URST, I love nerdy humor, and I love a good college bucket list. So I knew this book was meant to be for me. And I loved it just as much as I was expecting to. It was such a fun read. I was so sure that I would love this book that I signed up for two blogs tours for it by accident. Opps. Sometimes I get a little overly excited for a book. But I was happy that I did for Getting Lucky Number Seven. I loved cute and adorable awkward science nerd Lyla. And I beyond loved her friendship with hot and smart hockey/science guy Beck. It was a winning formula for me.

Lyla is an awesome girl, but she feels a little invisible to guys. When her roommate set her up on a group date at the start of the book and she overheard those mean comments, something inside of me broke a little for her. She didn’t deserve that at all. So I don’t blame her for wanting to try some new things. So she created her college bucket list. I don’t feel like she was changing herself for a guy because she was still the same girl. She changed her clothes, but as she pointed out, she wasn’t even sure that what she was wearing before was her style. She just wore it to hide. Lyla is a strong girl, and I don’t think she would do anything that she didn’t want to do for herself. I loved her journey of self discovery. And of course, I loved her interactions with Beck.

Beck is an awesome friend. Lyla was his lab partner, and since then they have developed a completely platonic sunday movie night tradition. Beck is a solidly great guy. He drops everything for Lyla- always. And watching him squirm while she checked off items on her bucket list had me giggling. They are just too cute. Don’t worry, there are roadblocks, and character discoveries and development that make Getting Lucky Number Seven more than just a fluff read. Beck’s family situation is very tough, in a non-conventional way. I think Getting Lucky Number Seven has something for everyone.

If you like romance or romantic comedy books at all, Getting Lucky Number Seven is a must read for you.

    Okay I love that she didn’t change for a guy but rather to better herself and be more comfortable with who she was. This sounds like a fantastic read Michelle. I already love this author so I just know I need to buy this one!

    This sounds like a great read. Thanks for sharing it because I wasn’t even aware of it. Great review too! 🙂

  3. Danielle @ Love at First Page

    Great review! I thought this book was pretty dang adorable. The friends-to-more storyline was done SO well. I really believed in their transition, and they made such a cute pair. Looking forward to reading more of this author. 🙂

    One of my fave types of romances is a best friends to more romance. There is just something so incredibly sweet and funny and awkward about it, and it usually makes me smile. Being the nerdy, quiet and shy type, I think I would be able to relate to Lyla pretty well. I think I will have to add YET another of your books to my TBR!
