The Lucky one book review

Yes this is my very first Nicholas Sparks book. I saw many of his movie, my favorite is A walk to remember (yes I loved The notebook but not my favorite), but I have never read any of his book, maybe because I'm not that into romance story. I like some romance in a book, but I don't usually like it when it is only romance.

Having said that, I really enjoy this book. With the movie coming up soon, I wanted to read the book before. I like the idea of someone finding a picture of someone and just knowing you have to find that person.

I have to say, I love the cover.

This is the summary from goodreads:

When U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman half-buried in the dirt during his third tour of duty in Iraq, his first instinct is to toss it aside. Instead, he brings it back to the base for someone to claim, but when no one does, he finds himself always carrying the photo in his pocket. Soon Thibault experiences a sudden streak of luck—winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat that kills two of his closest buddies. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph—his lucky charm.
Back home in Colorado, Thibault can’t seem to get the photo—and the woman in it—out of his mind. Believing that she somehow holds the key to his destiny, he sets out on a journey across the country to find her, never expecting the strong but vulnerable woman he encounters in Hampton, North Carolina—Elizabeth, a divorced mother with a young son—to be the girl he’s been waiting his whole life to meet. Caught off guard by the attraction he feels, Thibault keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate and all-consuming love affair, the secret he is keeping will soon threaten to tear them apart—destroying not only their love, but also their lives.Filled with tender romance and terrific suspense, The Lucky One is Nicholas Sparks at his best—an unforgettable story about the surprising paths our lives often take and the power of fate to guide us to true and everlasting love.
The story was very engaging, and I finished it before I knew it. It is written in three point of view.

I do feel this book was a little bit stereotypical, the beautiful people, the villain you love to hate and the storyline, but I feel it's the way Nicholas Sparks write, so you have to know that before getting yourself into the book.

The epilogue was a bit tricky, but I was happy with the ending.

And of course being a dog lover, how couldn't I love Zeus.

That's it,
Hope you are having a good week,
Love Laurence
