Lucky Hit (Swift Hat-Trick Trilogy Book 1)
About this deal
If someone were to ask Jasmine Santos to describe the last few years of her life with a single word, it would definitely be a four-letter one. There’s his career that worries her with regards to distance, fame and girls, but that is glossed over in an end chapter that feels like an epilogue Oakley & Ava are adorable, loved them. I really appreciated that there wasn’t a third act breakup. I love when an issue arises, and the couple works through it together.
Oakley and Ava's story was sweet. I really liked both characters and their friend group, but for some reason this one was just missing something for me. I can't put my finger on it. I enjoyed it, but I wanted to love it. Oakley and Ava meet one night at Oakley’s going away party as he transitions to the minor leagues. Oakley isn’t in the party mood, and Ava had just caught her boyfriend cheating. They end up talking for hours before going their separate ways. Oakley was a SWOON worthy book boyfriend. He was the absolute best. A little birdie told me, we see him again in the next generation series and I. Am. Here. For. That. !!You’re above coincidences. You make your own choices, forge your own path. Everything that happens, happens for a specific reason. Destiny be damned.” First off, a huge thank you to Hanna for sending me a review copy in exchange for an honest review. I’m going to give you my last name, and we’re going to have a life together. A family. You and me and however many kids you want.”

Ava had a rough start to life and she had surpassed it and is a lovely FMC. I love how she was able to have a mature conversation with Oakley instead of going off the rails and assuming the worst like we often see. Promise me you’ll wear it. I need my girl wearing my jersey in the stands, or I might lose the game.” I arch a brow. “Your girl?”

Unfortunately, this book felt like reading multiple unfinished ideas. The synopsis was misleading. I’m not sure what trope to categorize this under and there were way too many things going on that didn’t go anywhere: I shudder. “About what?” “I like you, Ava. Enough that the sight of you wearing another guy’s clothes makes me see red.” A cliche is just one of the things to look out for while writing. They can slip in unnoticed and ruin an otherwise great paragraph. Then there's the passive voice, accents, misspelling, typos, incorrect data. The list is long.
Oakley nods before a photo of us comes up on the small screen behind him. He swivels in his seat and grins. “Yeah, that’s her. That’s my Ava.” Hanna Cowen takes the reader behind the scenes and gives them a glimpse of what it is like for an NHL player. Maddox has been through a lot throughout his career, especially regarding the draft, finding the best team, and making a name for himself outside his father, who was also an NHL legend. He will do anything it takes to secure a contract with his team. On the other hand, Braxton is willing to do whatever it takes to gain Maddox’s trust and forgiveness for what happened years ago. And if a fake girlfriend is what Maddox needs, she is willing to commit to it. But as expected, the faking concept does not last long since the two have a strong connection that causes them pain when they separate. As a reader, you will enjoy seeing them forced to work through their issues and give each other a second chance at love and relationship. I never expected to see her again, but now she’s here in this new city, with ties to my new team, and I don’t think I’m strong enough to fight against her pull.

I loved Oakley sm. Hannah writes obsessive men perfectly. And AVA!!!!! Her journey? I loved it. She’s adopted and is dealing with the dynamics between finding her biological mom and how that impacts her and her family. The emotions I felt while reading were Maddox is highly protective. And even though he’s got a filthy mouth, it’s not the same case when it comes to Braxton. He literary worships her and wants the best for her. On the other hand, Braxton is strong, witty, confident, kind, and got the kindest heart. Avid Beta readers are not your editor or proof reader and don't expect them to do the grunt work. That's up to you. But they could have spotted a few fleas BEFORE you released the book and helped strengthen your story.
