Rating: 4/5 stars
When I first read the blurb for The Lucky Ones, I thought for sure it’d have an X-Men feel to it. Perhaps my imagination ran away on me, but that didn’t matter. This book was better than my original expectations.
Not better than X-Men. I just want to make that clear.
Tiffany Reisz wrote this 365 page book with every reader in mind. If you’re on the fence and you’re not sure if this book is for you, trust me, it is!
Allison heads back to The Dragon, the place she called home for a huge part of her childhood when she learns that the man she used to call dad is dying. It’s her only chance to see him before he passes away, but those aren’t her only intentions.
Allison needs answers.
Although she has fond memories of her family and the place she called home, Allison still believes someone in her childhood home is responsible for pushing her down a flight of stairs, almost to her death. After Allison woke in a hospital, her aunt by her bedside to take her home with her, she was unable to remember anything about the accident.
Allison has waited long enough to have answers to the questions she’s kept to herself for so long and she’ll do whatever needs to be done to get them, even if that includes digging up the history and past experiences of her closest siblings and the father figure she looked up to. The secrets and lies that have kept this tight-knit family together slowly begin to reveal themselves. While Allison desperately searches for answers, the past becomes clearer and clearer. Allison no longer knows who she can trust or who she can talk to.
Too many secrets in this house. So many they were starting to feel like…
The Lucky Ones is sexy, mysterious and suspenseful at all the right moments. You won’t regret picking this beautifully covered book up.
