Love & Luck Reviews
really cute and fun with a road trip and faaaaaaaaaaamily
3.5, rounding up
First of all, I love this cover. So simple, so cute.
I was pretty excited to read this book because I read Love & Gelato and fell in love with it. This one wasn't as good as Love & Gelato for me but I did enjoy a lot of it. This is a contemporary YA book, no romance really, just some family and friends working things out.
Road trip anyone? Through Ireland? Yes, please. But maybe with a touch less drama than Addie and Ian's. Real life issues face both Addie and Ian who are ...more

2.5 stars. I absolutely love Ireland and adored Love & Gelato by this author, so I was really looking forward to this one! I thought it was a solid contemporary YA story, but had a hard time really getting into any of it. I just didn't connect with the characters and was honestly super annoyed by the tone of the travel advice section. It was beyond irritating and unfortunately took up a lot of the book, so that really threw me out of the story.

Rating - 4.75 stars!
This was just what I needed right now. It’s the perfect contemporary if you’re looking for something quick and easy to read.
I did prefer Love & Gelato but I did really, really enjoy this one aswell :)
Two years ago, I read a wonderful story titled Love & Gelato. It introduced me to gelato, a very succulent human invention, and quite a swoon-worthy Italian – Ren.
I couldn’t wait to read more from this author.
So when I had the opportunity to read Love & Luck, I jumped with joy. I kid you not, I received an e-mail saying I would receive a copy of it thirty minutes before taking one of my final exams. Let me tell you that I was more eager than usual to sit for three hours and an ...more
MY RATING: 4/5 STARS
I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This is my first Jenna Evans Welch book despite me having a copy of her famous novel, Love & Gelato that swept the nation and bookstagram feeds of all your friends. From my brief understanding of Jenna's books is that it usually involves A LOT of travel, summer adventures, and the possibility of romance. Now don't quote me but I think Love & Gelato includes more romance than Love & Luck.

I have always been drawn to road trip novels, especially international road trip novels, so I was very excited when I heard about the release of Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch. This is a unique story in which the main character uses a guide book to get over heartbreak, and I loved her transformation. I also adored the setting, and I would definitely recommend this book for the summer.
