The Good Luck Sister
A Wildstone Novella
By: Jill Shalvis
Harper Collins – May 1st, 2018
This summer, romance blooms again in Wildstone!
After a difficult few years, Tilly Adams is ready for life to start going right. Though she has a case of first day nerves teaching art at the local community college, she knows it isn’t anything a few snuggles from her rescue puppy won’t cure. Until she sees Dylan Scott again, her one-time BFF and first love sitting in the front row.
Dylan knows he should’ve left well enough alone, but when he sees Tilly living her dream, he can’t help but make contact. Ten years ago, he left Wildstone and everything in it behind, including Tilly. He had his reasons, but now he wants her back in his life, anyway he can get her.
When Tilly agrees to design the logo for Dylan’s new helicopter touring company, it’s business only…until she finds herself falling into his arms once again. Can she possibly open her heart back up to the only man who’s ever broken it? But soon they’re both realizing the truth — love always deserves a second chance.
A sweet and sexy, feel-good, humorous romance novella that is filled with charming characters who feel the pain from the past and have hope for the future.
Here is something that I have always been able to count on: Jill Shalvis' writing makes me smile, lifts up my day, and gives all the warm and fuzzy, good kind of vibes that romance novels, in my mind, are supposed to be delivering. The characters are well thought out, they have an in-depth history, they feel deep and wide, and while they are not immune to the pain and sorrow of life, there's always the silver lining that shines through.
In The Good Luck Sister teenage best friends Tilly Adams and Dylan Scott are brought together again, after a decade apart.
Dylan's abusive childhood left sores in his soul that needed time to heal. He broke Tilly's heart when he left the town to join the service, but he did it with good intentions.
Tilly has worked hard to reach her goals in life. Her dream to be a famous painter is not picking up as fast as she desired, and teaching arts and graphic design would help to finance her life while she waits for her big break. Imagine her surprise on the first day of teaching, when she walks into the classroom and Dylan is sitting in the front row.
Each chapter of the novella starts with a look at the life ten years ago, giving insights into the history Dylan and Tilly have. I appreciated those flashbacks to get the full history and see where Dylan and Tilly were coming from and what they had left behind, what they needed to overcome. The connection between Dylan and Tilly was true and tight, filled with adoration and passion. With the solid foundation they have had in the past, it was easier to build a relationship in the present. The timeline was a bit choppy, but the romance was believable and conceivable, the chemistry was there, the characters just needed to communicate, open their hearts, and honestly share their thoughts and feelings, from past and from the present.
A delightful and enjoyable, entertaining tale of teenage lovers finding their second chance with their soul mates ten years later...
